Just would like to announce that after having a bit of a play in Lua I feel reasonably confident about announcing a tool that I have started working upon.
As I’m still learning Lua and the Renoise API, it will be nothing fancy.
It will be able to convert between pitch bend controller messages (for VSTi’s) and 01, 02 pitch bend commands (for samples).
My proposed method is:
Write out the appropriate 01 and 02 commands
Going the other way will be implemented later
What I would like is some more detailed information on how the 01 and 02 commands work. I know they are linked into the number of ticks, so therefore effect value * number of ticks should always give the same change in pitch. Is this correct? If so, there must be a specific constant that is obtained when multiplied to give a whole semitone change in pitch. Does this sound correct?
Edit: Found it in the help (obviously)
Also, is anyone else working on anything similar? I don’t want to tread on anyone elses toes.
