renoise [3.01] BETA; TESTING WELCOMED
Tool Version 1.1
- Removed a lot of the unecessary status updates, only empty track is notified by the autocapture
- 3 new Shortcuts:
ACF Add Or Go To Empty Instrument Slot"
Takes you to the first unused instrument slot in the instrument list (empty slot is tested/counts here as an instrument with no name)
ACF Go To First Empty Track"
Takes you to the first empty track, if none are present a new track is created called “NEW TRACK”
ACF Go To First Empty Track and Instrument"
Combines the above two shortcuts into one; Puts you on an empty instrument slot and an empty track ready to load up a sound and get to work!
2.8 and 3.0 versions
2.7 Beta version
This tool is a development on from my Capture shortcut tool. This tool is an Autocapture with a similar functionality.
The following screenshot shows one of the functions of this script, which is to automatically add instrument data to the first line of the song. This is necessary to make the script work quickly so if you are not happy with this please use the other tool linked above which gives a similar functionality (but is not automatic like this script)
ADDS PATTERN INSTRUMENT DATA AUTOMATICALLY PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PICTURE
reliableinstrument capture by always grabbing the first instrument in a track.
Will grab instruments even when you scrollbar left and right through a pattern.
Emulates having single instrument slots assigned to different tracks.
Jumps to last instrument slot if a track is empty.
Enable/ Disable the tool in the pattern editor menu.
Automatically adds pattern instrument data to the start of tracks for faster operation.
Advice for best Results:
- Particularly on larger songs, delete any empty tracks as as these will slow the script down.
- Switch off renoise`s native Autocapture in the options menu to avoid any possible conflicts.
