just posted this in the thread about octamed and in the general discussions as a new topic. . . trying to find the correct home for it. . . sorry . . . . . . ., and maybe i shouldve mentioned it in the amaiga users thread too.
but i was thinking abo0ut the DEVS working on the sample editor (implementing the personally over anticipated record function . . shouldve been there from the beggining IMHO)
and thought about the ability to hand draw soundwaves . . . . this was possible in the earliest of sampling technologies (the fairlight CMI) : : : take a look at this great clip :
it was also a much loved feature in octamed .
with renoises ability to create instruments from short looping waveforms (is this called wavetable synthesis? / is this how a PPG wave works?) . . it would be great to be able to sketch in these strange shapes for instrument creation . . even without the fairlights ability to “morph” between waveshapes.
also . . .anyone using protracker (amiga) would also remember the ability to combine samples to create new samples . . . although this is posible in renoise by rendering a short segment of your pattern, its not totally functional to do this as sample editing and “score” editing should remain seperate in my book . . . a feature to do this in the sample editor would be great. . .
thats my rant for the day … . .
