It’s certainly been a while since I’ve considered mucking around with sample loop positions however I was recently encouraged that I can script moving the selected_sample.loop_start and selected_sample.loop_end positions around during playback with Renoise 3.1.1. The script certainly changes the loop_start and loop_end positions as expected, however because I’m using a while loop for crude modulation eventually renoise pauses the script and asks the user if it should keep running.
I’m not hoping to run a script continuously - I’ve read that I shouldn’t expect to be able to do anything real-time with scripts. I’m wondering if I might be able to add a sample modulation set item that interacts with loop_start and loop_end. If such a thing is possible for a renoise tool I’ll dive into that for a first renoise tool project! (after a long hiatus)
