New alpha that I`ve been wanting to do for a little while. It’s a bit hacky but works better than I expected. However it needs some alpha testing before I fill it out with final features (pan and delay columns). (pan and delay columns now supported)
Basically it allows you to control the the velocity pan and delay values of notes already in a track from the automaton editor. Either the selected column or all columns in the pattern_track can be chosen.
To use it you use:
VPD Toggle Envelopes and Control Panel
(You will need to navigate to the VEL, PAN or DLY automation which should be enabled) and you are then presented with what is shown in the following screen shots. While the tool is running the Control Panel GUI stays open, this has been done as like I say the tool is a bit hacky and the control panel gives you confirmation it is enabled plus some features to work with it.
2. [Refresh Current]
Refreshes the envelope manually after you have been changing things in the pattern editor. This will also bee done automatically every time you change column or track in the pattern editor, but this is there for the occasions you may need it.
This stops the tools notifiers firing when you do an undo operation. If you are having trouble with the renoise undo then you can use this which can work better without having to close the tool down
Similar explanation to undo
4.Set All In Col slider
If you want a quick way to change all the velocity columns to the same value in the selected column use this. (Note this slider can be unresponsive at times, particularly if changing all columns in the track, clicking roughly where you want it to go can be quicker than sliding it in these cases)
5.Apply To All Cols Checkbox
Will apply the current velocity envelope to all columns when active, Also applies the Set All In Col slider to all columns.
Note when using the automation with this enabled, only the lines with notes on are copied whereas with the Set All In Col slider every note in the pattern_track gets effected.
Closer X, worth mentioning as when GUI is closed, all added devices and envelopes are removed and the tool is de-activated. Using the toggle short-cut to close has the same effect.
Once the tool is enabled you will see the Vel Pan Dly device appear at the first position in the track DSPs, this is how the envelopes are created. You will need to navigate to the VEL automation which should be enabled. Now you can effect the notes in your track from this automation. As you change to each track you will have to navigate to the VEL parameter for the first time you are on that track. Unfortunately there is no way for the script to do this automatically though I have asked for the feature in the API thread, because of this.
Shortcuts for some of the Control panel functions available also, just search for `VPD` in the renoise shortcuts list .
- v0.61 - Fixed bug where changing tracks would not always update envelopes properly on previous track
- v0.58 - bug fixed where changing patterns on a group send or master track would change the view to automation when the tool was running:
- v0.57 - bug fixes for issues when changing patterns or adding a new track could crash the running tool.
- v0.56 - pan and delay columns now supported:
