I was riding the subway today and thinking about a song I’ve been working on when a cool idea came to me.
It’d be awesome if you could click a button in the instrument settings called “Offset Mapping” or something that would allow you to use the sample-mapping to map your offsets. Even if it wasn’t adjustable, it’d be pretty great to have the following:
No, I thought of the ability to set the slicepoints (which are used with the 09 effect) in the sampleview. I havnt yet thought about the concrete design, but basically you should be able to drag markers wich are linked to an offsetnumber. Also something like an “autofind slices” option would be nice …
Let me know your ideas, if you have some.
I dont know why people are so ignorant and want taktik to code stuff which can be done already using other free software (even if it means one or two more clicks.) seems like re-inventing the wheel to me.
come on … wavesurgeon is free, it does what you want, it saves wavfiles … there are so much things to be done in renoise first.
wavesurgeon is the workaround for the things you want (and a very good one), but there are alot of wanted options which do not have any workaround at all. So this thing is not important at all, because it can be done already.
man, you’re sounds weird. first of all, hundreds of “not important at all” things make renoise best tracker ever. secondly, nobody can guarantee there will be good free software in the future. and after all, why do you use renoise if you could use some scream tracker and some freeware wave editor? i think you use renoise because it’s better to have everything in one, you don’t have to waste time on switching between soft and saving wav files. also you don’t need to search for free plugins like reverb and etc, it’s already in. so, every good idea should be in, otherwise it won’t be the best.
Looza just said there were more important issues right now, not that this was “not important at all” as you say. He even calls it a workaround…
Besides, I think there are many more reasons to use Renoise than just because it’s a good all-in-one tracker or it has a good sample engine. A few are using Renoise for MIDI only which really proves the point.
We are discussing lots of stuff that will not be integrated within the next weeks, so why dont you see this as just another idea ?
We will priorize the stuff after the ideas are discussed, so I see no point in blocking an idea in the beginning.
Maybe I should avoid saying “I need or like this feature” to prevent such discussions. Of course I am the one of the guys who decides it at the end, but I think we managed it so far to make most of the users happy, instead of doing things that we would like to have …
I’d prefer it not work that way, since it would be kind of convenient to have it work out over your two octaves exactly… It’d be easy to visualize the fact that, in a standard breakbeat, C-4 is your kick, G-4 is your first snare, C-5 or E-5 is your second kick and G-5 is your second snare. It’d be nice to write a drum pattern like this to chop up a breakbeat:
I would say this is something to be implemented together with a more sofisticated rni format. If you can specify layering with pitch, volume etc for each key (or key zones), you could add sample offset there as well.
