Re: How to make chords ?

The only true way to do a chord is to strike two or more notes simultaneously across separate channels, which will usually necessitate an expansion chip for the extra channels. Alternately, you can use the arpeggio effect (0xy) to simulate a chord (which rapidly alternates between each note). But yo...

Re: Command Modifier

If you want a pitchbend to stop on a specific note (as in pitch), use the portamento (3xx) for that. If you want it to stop at a specific timing (as measured by engine ticks), just place a 100/200 command and use Gxx to fine-tune it. I would love the ability to tune a vibrato - by which I mean a com...

Re: "Make uniqune" for patterns

The way I'm interpreting #2 we already have that -- in the frame editor just right-click a given frame (any channel) and select "duplicate patterns" to clone all channels of that frame into empty pattern IDs. If that's a given, then #1 is similar except it only affects the focused channel ...

Re: "Make uniqune" for patterns

So basically an unmerge/duplicate specified pattern ID on a specified channel(s). Total support here :) This is a really common operation when you're trying to establish repetition of reprises, and the only acceptable method currently is a manual copy/paste from the original pattern to the new frame...

Re: Composing Troubles

Haven't listened to any of your work, but guessing from this thread you're lacking a "pallet" of sorts. "palate". (I work in grocery retail so I deal with pallets all the time.) I agree, though, no matter what you do keep trying SOMETHING. You can't be a music composer without, ...

Re: Perfect Pitch?

I know what that's like. Me, I can generally identify what key a song is in but only in terms of tones (i.e., base note, third, fifth, octave). Once I know that I can produce the entire scale for whatever key that is, but I'm hopeless at remembering exactly what note is what (i.e. I couldn't tell yo...

That attitude has always kind of bugged me, but I'm having a hard time describing just why.

I, too, would like the occasional option for FT to ignore some of the NES's hardware quirks/bugs (like the phase reset) in-tracker.

Re: Duty cycle changes when two channels play same note

Fun fact: There was a point in one song I was working on where I was using the 12.5% waves, and at one point they happened to hit the same pitch exactly out of phase with each other. The result was effectively a 25% wave at one octave higher. It was really weird.

Re: Duty cycle changes when two channels play same note

So the short version is you have two channels playing a 50% wave, but one of them an octave higher? Threxx is right, strange things will happen if two channels' waveforms are perfectly in sync with each other. E.g: Pulse 1 (50% wave): 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 Pulse 2 (50% wave, octave+1): 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 Res...

Re: Fade Out when Exporting as .WAV

As a clickable export option? Totally, if FT could do that it as part of the export process it would save the extra step of needing to boot up Audacity (et al.) to do it for you.
