Sample effects, semitones

Noob question here:

Dxx - Slide pitch down by xx 1/16ths of a semitone (01 is 1/16th of a semitone, 08 is half a semitone, 10 is a whole semitone)

01 is 1/16th of a semitone --> ok

08 is half a semitone --> ok

10 is a whole semitone --> wtf??

Why 10 and not 16??

Because pattern commands (and other aspects of Renoise and trackers in general) use the hexadecimal numerical system, aka base 16.

In other words, 10 hexadecimal = 16 decimal.

00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F
10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F
and so on…
