Global samples list ?


I don’t understand why each instrument has 16 samples for itself. This brings 2 problems to me :

  • an instrument can be limited if it needs more than 16 samples
  • and if two instruments need the same sample, you must copy it in both instruments samples list.

What about a global samples list ? Like ModPLug Tracker ?
You would have your load of samples, and instruments mappers would be directly linked to any of them. Wouldn’t that be useful ?

Sorry if this thread has been discussed before, or if I’m the only one interested :).


A holdover from trying to be like FT2 I imagine.

I agree a global/shared sample bank would be a better solution.
