oops, nevermind, figured out about 64 sample length.

another thing that should be front and center in a user guide!

MilkyTracker Community / Tuning question
« on: May 29, 2008, 05:43:33 »
so I've been using milkytracker for about a week and am getting the hang of it and almost done a couple songs, when today I tried playing some acoustic guitar over one of them. I thought "huh, my guitar must be way out of tune."

so to check, i compared an E from my electric keyboard to an E from MilkyTracker's keyboard and they're not remotely the same note. I hadn't noticed this before because MilkyTracker's notes are INTERNALLY consistent, but its keyboard seems not to be tuned to middle C.

Is there a quick fix for this I've overlooked?

thanks for the replies, i totally appreciate it.

i'll check out the FastTracker manual.

also, the more I play with MT on my own, the more I learn; I just tend to get frustrated when I can't figure things out right away.

thanks for the advice everyone

i've looked through the milkytracker.html and it has a lot of info about keyboard shortcuts and note parameters and effects and stuff like that, but it doesn't seem to define a lot of the features; for instance, how do you make a note that just plays once instead of a constant tone, or what it means that instruments can seemingly have multiple samples (whch i haven't figured out the purpose of yet). Is that stuff considered common knowledge; should I just be looking for info on beginning tracking in general?

Hi, i tried really hard to find the answer myself before cluttering up the board with noob questions, but I can't find this anywhere: in milkytracker, how do I erase an entry without "zapping" the entire pattern? It can't possibly be that one typo and you have to completely start again! But i've systematically tried literally every key on the keyboard and nothing will erase an entry.


is there a basic instruction manual/list of basic functions and commands anywhere? I've been searching all day and haven't found anything but YouTube tutorials, which are great to a point, but the drawback is I can't see what keys are being pressed and in what combination.
