it’s probably a sine wave with a compressor, but i haven’t come close to make it sound like this…
4. does someone have a full and ready to use XRNI Piano instrument? i have the Grand Piano sample pack which was a free dl and linked somewhere on this board, and i tried to make an XRNI out of them, but i somehow fail at it
5. this is probably a very stupid question, but how can i find out, which key/note a sample is played at? for example, in some sample packs there are these readymade melodies. let’s say i want to take the chord with the longest decay to make my own melody, but how do i know whether it is C-4, C#4, D-4, A-4 and so on??? hope you get me!!!
it’s really hard to tell how that is made, it is definately a series of fx. I am quite sure one of the dominant ones is a flanger. Maybe there is some modulation of the dry/wet on it. It might be based on a low-pass filtered saw wave, but I am really not sure.
That’s a fx called a dub or a tape delay, it’s a feedback looped delay wich filters the frequencies of signal every time it get’s looped. I use a VST by TAL, which is free and run on both windows and linux.
I want to know too! T^T Detuning the signal on one speaker (which gives binural beats) works great for stereo systems, but if you make club music that won’t work since they use mono.
The best place for free renoise resources is http://www.loopproject.com/ , maybe they will have one you like. Othewise there are free VSTis.
Try looking at the master spectrum, C4 is around 261,5 hz and A4 is 440 hz. If that is too hard to read try putting in a constant sine wave to reference all the sounds by. It’s hard though, they should really have that information in the nameing-convention or meta-data.
If you are a bit sly about the piano thing you can download a demo of a professional piano VSTi, there are many that let you use them for 5 minute periods at a time, and use the plugin grabber function in renoise to convert it to an XNRI, it’s a grey zone and not technically illegal (as I have understood it it is a bit illegal if the piano is sample based, but not if it is simulated).
