How to use the LUA API to specify preferences for Phrases? i.e. when you create a new phrase, it will always have: sample_effects_column_visible=false panning_column_visible=false delay_column_visible=false visible_note_columns=1
local song=renoise.song if (song().selected_phrase) then local phr=song().selected_phrase phr.sample_effects_column_visible=true phr.bla_bla_bla=true phr.bla_bla_bla=false phr.bla_bla_bla=true ... end
Remember first to make sure that the phrase exists!
thanks, that does seem to work.
yeah, i was hoping to automate it so that whenever i create a phrase for an instrument (like shift-alt-p or something), it’d always do these things. but am yet to figure out how to create a phrase safely onto the currently selected instrument. would be cool.
this is what i ended up using this saturday afternoon…
local phra=renoise.song().instruments[renoise.song().selected_instrument_index].phrases[renoise.song().selected_phrase_index] phra.sample_effects_column_visible=false phra.panning_column_visible=false phra.delay_column_visible=false phra.visible_note_columns=1 phra.instrument_column_visible=false
local phra=renoise.song().selected_phrase phra.sample_effects_column_visible=false phra.panning_column_visible=false phra.delay_column_visible=false phra.visible_note_columns=1 phra.instrument_column_visible=false
Anyway never use . [ ] (access the entire table, it is slower)
Use : ( ) (access the value directly, it is faster)
And use a local
local song=renoise.song song():instrument(song().selected_instrument_index)
I have a bad habit of using
song = renoise.song()
But it is better to use
song = renoise.song
You have to make as few calls as possible. This is very important when you iterate.
thanks, i started using renoise.song().selected_phrase and it seemed to feel a bit quicker. i’ll see what i can do.
i appreciate the s=renoise.song() suggestions, i just like to use non-optimized text while i’m fiddling with it (might need to paste it to the terminal… if i have shortenings, the terminal pasting will not work directly…)
