This one is an apparently popular request that I myself needed in order to have a convenient way of getting envelope and fx interpolation spread across multiple patterns (at least up to 512 lines, the max number a pattern can contain) as I requested here.
Below is a view of the dialog that shows up now when you select “Split”. I augmented It-Alien’s original code and did some performance improvements. However, it is still somewhat slow if you split a pattern into > 16 parts. Due to the size restriction on a pattern, this probably is not a big deal.
I have a couple questions, since this is my first tool contribution, but it is expanding on someone else’s. How do I go about distributing this without creating confusion or stepping on It-Alien’s toes? Should I upload it as a separate tool with the “plus” suffix? I have credited It-Alien in the manifest.xml appropriately.
I have attached it for your testing/consumption pleasure. Please give me feedback on anything you can think of. You can compare it to the original and see what I have added. I would like to eventually get this up on the Tools page.
Forgot to attach the file! Getting a bit delirious this evening.
UPDATE# 390493: I have attached the latest version (.93) of the splitter. It addresses the numerical ordering of the patterns that are created in the process of splitting. It is with this version that I have uploaded this to the tools section.
