It’s basically a 1-beat envelope editor with grid snapping. It’s meant to make arpeggio pitch envelopes.
The problem is, apparently (please please correct me), 1 beat in envelope time is 24 columns. This is fine if all you want is a curve that begins and ends with a beat, but for making things synced to actual beats and such, this is almost a nonsense number. To make anything “fine” loop in time with a beat i’d need 7/8 or 3/4, not 4/4, so for instance 1->32 (0->31).
In addition, i really do wish there was point type envelopes. Interpolation for pitch envelopes is fine for vibrato and such, but for arps it just sounds wack.
Would it be possible to have a per-song envelope-specific lines per beat setting? Automation envelopes operate in “pattern time”, while instrument envelopes operate in “beat time”. When i see an automation envelope of length 56, and i can see that that number corresponds to the pattern position, i get mighty confused when the column number in the instrument envelopes does not.
yes you can .The only drawback is that there wil always be a portion of the envelope where it slides …to connect the envelope points together ( as you can’t have 2 points at the same place …
If you want a pitched envelope with four semitone …just make an envelope of 96 steps …divide by 4=24
0-23 first beat
Expand your pitch envelope to 96 and paste …
We need the ability to use all three different envelope types at once …linear ;point and cubic
Between the points of envelope ( point mode ) there is no interpolation between them …thus no sliding from one value to another .In combination with the interpolated ( cubic ,linear ) envelopes we can achieve the same thing .
