the only way I can imagine this could be done as of now is by using the loop markers: a timer could be used to move the markers periodically to show the beginning and end of each slice. of course, the real loop markers info should be kept in order to restore it if the slicing does not get confirmed by the user.
do you think that such a solution would be helpful?
+1, would be wicked to see whats being done, before doing it…
also, could we have the choice of the slices being in new instrument slots, instead of a keymapped 1 instrument per chop? i for one would appreciate being able to unravel loops with sampleslicer to new sampleslots…
I need this , since I can’t export from renoise my turntable recorded wav’s into Recycle and am to lazy to chop something renoise manualy into 32 chops.
it would cut out the need of such of external slicer. I already threw out a couple of vst’s because of
the build in dsp’s.
It-Alien, have you already looked if the previous mentioned even is possible in LUA?
ps. the already developed tools are great!
Very nice job everybody and Renoise thank you for making scripting possible!
I have made a sketch of the visualization functionality, which seems to work fine. Unfortunately, there is a problem with modal dialogs (see here) so I had to turn this tool into a non-modal dialog; the code then needs more modifications in order to be crash-proof, so I will not publish it officially for now.
please check if it does fulfil your needs.
note: I have decided to use fake selection blocks in order to visualize the slices instead of loop markers. I think this solution is far better and, although the initial selection gets restored if no slicing is done when the dialog closes, it’s anyway more error-proof
