Yesterday I learned intresting thing from a japanese Renoise user.(Thanks Nosuke-san!)
He teach me that;
if the Autoseek is enabled beforehand, the recorded sample can be triggered immediately after the end of the recording.
So if we;
- Select “Pattern mode” on the Sample Recorder
- Select blank slot in the Instrument Selector
- Set Autoseek to “Enabled” in the Sample Properties
- Input [C-4] to the first line of the Track in the Pattern Editor
then start recording (and hit “stop”),
now we can use Renoise like a “Sound on Sound” looper. Yay!!
But current “Pattern mode” is not so convenient for such purpose.
Therefore, I propose the new audio recording mode which utilized the Matrix.
For example, (the operation as a user)
- Open the Sample Recorder and Select “Matrix mode”
- Click a blank slot (where you want to put the recorded sample) in the Matrix
- the clicked slot blinks (this is in a recording reservation state)
then start playing.
(Under the hood)
- Record the audio sample which fits the slot length
- inputs [C-4] to the first line of the clicked Matrix slot (i.e. Pattern Editor)
- Set Autoseek of the sample to “Enabled”
Also we can reserve next recording via [Ctrl + click] another Matrix slot.
Well, I don’t have scripting skill at all , so I don’t know whether this idea is scriptable or not.
But how do you think about this idea??
