MilkyTracker Support / Re: Multichannel recording always on

yeah, ok! got it now ... anyway.. the statement "mc recording always on" is wrong.. ;P

Yeah, I should have expressed myself more clearly.

will you tell me what instr-backtrace is then? heheh!

OK, it works like this:
When you enter a new note in the pattern editor, the currently selected instrument will not be used. Instead, the instrument of the preceding note on the same channel will be "inherited".

and now for the stupid part of this post: i am interested in writing a "milky explained kind of a doc"...
anyone up with me before getting off topic now?...

Sure, I'd like to chip in.

Point taken.

8ch: Yes!  :rolleyes:
Just to reiterate once more: I *know* how to do multichannel recording in Milky (Just record-mark a few channels, make sure Follow is on, press space if you're not in edit mode, Ctrl+enter and jam away, there's nothing to it!)  :D
As I've said a couple of times now, the only thing I don't get here is what actual function is performed by the "Multichannel Recording" option, because I really can't see the difference. Sorry if I'm getting boring now...

8ch: Yes, I know how live recording in Milky works, though my PC keyboard chops leave a lot to be desired :D I'm a bit more adept with a real MIDI keyboard, but I don't have one a.t.m. so I mostly step-edit.

It's just that I don't notice any difference in the program's behavior whether the "Multichannel Recording" option is activated or not.

Now that I've done some more experimenting I've found that you can shift+right-click a scope to solo/unsolo recording, similar to right+left-clicking for mutes. Nice easter egg! But this should really be documented...

Well, that only affects non-realtime editing, doesn't it?

The only reason I wrote this silly bug report :D is that I'm in the process of learning MilkyTracker inside out and I'm trying to figure out what every control and every option on every page does. It's been quite a bit of detective work ;) Sure, it's been fun to figure out what things like "Instr. backtrace" mean, but the documentation is somewhat incomplete.

So anyway, I found this little checkbox and I can't figure out what it's doing, and it kinda bugs me, that's all  ;D

The Multichannel recording checkbox on the Config.I/O page doesn't seem to actually do anything. Multichannel recording appears to be always enabled (assuming you have record enabled 2 or more tracks).

1 beat = 24 ticks.
Tempo = beats per minute = ticks per minute / 24.
Speed = ticks per line = beats per line * 24
Lines per beat = 24 / speed.
Speed  Line notevalue
24     1/4
16     1/4T
12     1/8
 8     1/8T
 6     1/16
 4     1/16T
 3     1/32
 2     1/32T
 1     1/64T

In fact, my wild guess is -28.
You're right. I just loaded up a sample and wrongly assumed it would have a default finetune value of 0.

Anyway, the quick reference printouts have the same incorrect values.

Also, there's probably a typo in that table: the first value should probably be -128, no?

According to my ears, the Finetune (E5x) table for FTII mode shown in the manual doesn't match the values actually used in the program. The table says that the center (finetune 0) should be at E57, but it actually sounds more like the center is at E56 (or very close to it).
