How about add preview waveform window in instrument editor ?

Postby GOZAHAND » Tue Jan 05, 2016 10:08 pm

Yes. We can see waveform in waveform window placed below song information window.

But this window needs playing sound (play pattern or hit note)

What I means is add a waveform window in instrument editor what doesn't need playing sound. Just show waveform like C-3 note (Note can be changed what user want) It will be helpful when making VRC7(or square pulse) instrument. 8-)

For VRC7, adding a real-time preview window of how the waveform would look like is a really great idea. For the other chips, I don't really see a point though.

In addition to this, I also think the whole note thing should be thrown out the window, and instead it should just show the full waveform.

The piano keyboard thing? But it provides mouse/tablet functionality for testing notes with that instrument.

Plus, there's also the fact that how the instrument plays in the editor (e.g. pulse wave, triangle, etc.) is dependent on which channel the cursor's on in the Pattern editor. This is a really weird quirk that it would be nice to have some control over (perhaps a dropdown menu above the piano keyboard allowing you to set which channel you want to preview it with, "(auto)" being the default setting).

No no, the keyboard should be kept in! I meant that the preview window should just show the entire waveform and not like a certain note being played through an oscilloscope. It's kinda hard to explain, but I hope that was clear enough.

And add graph of Carrier & Modulator's ADSR envelope. Like a DefleMask Tracker.

Oh, right, we're talking about the VRC7 specifically. Duh.

I like this idea.
