Re: "Apply to all slots" for DPCM

This could be made into a feature, but making it work would be a fairly involved process. If my reckoning is right (do correct me if I am mistaken), in order to fill a single octave with chromatic DPCM samples (assuming you want to use speeds 15 and 14 only, which provide the best sample quality available), you need five chromatic samples ranging from the highest note of the octave to the major third below (e.g. C4 through Ab3 if you want C3 through C4). So you would either need to already have those samples at hand, or the tracker would generate them from a single given sample. Then it would figure out which one is the highest-pitch sample (not easy), and use an algorithm to distribute the samples across a specified octave.

For two, three, four etc. octaves, this process gets more and more complicated.

So it's theoretically possible, but in practice it's probably too much work for too little benefit in return.


This thread was reported to me as containing way too much hostility for a simple feature request thread, and I have to say I agree with that sentiment. MiniMacro you need to be mindful of other people telling you why your feature is or isn't a good idea. Everyone else needs to chill out and be a little bit more respectful. Okay? Okay.

Now, this wouldn't make it chromatic, but just the same note, and then work from there.

The thing is that you'd have to rework all the other notes that you need to change, so this still wouldn't be too useful dude. You would essentially be overwriting your work so it wouldn't help at all.

Also for everyone who replied in a hostile way, knock it off. Starting such lengthy arguments over a simple thing isn't cool, and like jrlepage said, chill out. You can all have a perfectly fine discussion here without being hostile.

So, Hertz, are you defending my idea or going against it.
