I honestly never knew this....drag sample from browser to Pattern Edit


(m.arthur) #1

I’ve used Renoise for years now…

And every time I wanted to use a sample, my brain was just ingrained in this thinking: drag it into the Waveform editor, or the sample list for an instrument. THEN go to the pattern editor, and enter a note where you want it triggered.

I just realized LAST NIGHT that you can drag samples directly from the browser into the pattern editor, and drop them wherever you want it to occur. It creates the instrument, and creates the event on the line where you drop it. I’m laughing at myself so hard. I seriously didn’t know it could do that… it’s so EASY.

iirc you could even drag and *.txt, a *.ini or any file into the sample editor and some kind of waveform will be there ready to edit

how you do that ? I cant , it only creates sample and no patter event, is this cos i am on ubuntu studio ?

I am wondering why this works:

when I d&d from the file browser. is great!

But why not:

when I d&d from the instrument list?

I’d assume it’s the difference between dragging a Sample versus dragging an Instrument. A sample is a simple piece of data, the program reads it as “user wants to create an instrument from this sample, and trigger it here, using the root note so it plays back exactly the same.” Which is exactly what it does. But dragging an instrument form the instrument list, that’s not the same thing… the program probably doesn’t have instructions for a “renoise instrument” being dragged to a line in the pattern editor; it doesn’t know what to do with this info. With a sample, it’s cut and dry.

Just my guesses though, I didn’t design it! But there’s a logic there that makes sense to me.

m.arthur: what system u are on?

edit: now I got it, u were talking about browser inside Renoise not outside ,
