Automated Sample Recording From Hardware
This tool is to help automate the process of creating a Renoise instrument directly from sounds from a piece of MIDI capable hardware, such as as a synthesizer.
For example, I have a Korg Volca FM, which can make some interesting sounds. To make a Renoise instrument from these sounds, I have to record samples at various notes/octaves, normalize the sample volume, remove leading silence, and map the sample to a key zone.
This tool does all of that for you automatically and hands free. It starts recording a sample, sends a MIDI signal to your device to have it play a note, and processes the sample. Repeat for as many octaves and/or notes as you want.
This demo is slightly outdated at this point, but it still gets the general purpose across.
