MilkyTracker Community / Re: Filter Algorithms

Thanks a ton. This is an incredible resource.

I'll probably read most of it simply because I'm interested.

MilkyTracker Community / Filter Algorithms
« on: September 22, 2008, 05:04:34 »
Milkytracker has a nice set of filters, and I know there are people around here who know a thing or two about audio processing, so I was wondering if any of you know where I can find decent resources on writing filtering algorithms. I have a decent background in digital signal processing, and I've been using Max/MSP for a few years now, but I still don't know much about the inner workings of FIR filters and Fourier transforms.

So I was wondering, what would any of you suggest for learning more about this sort of thing? I'd like to begin work on some cross-platform synthesis/audio editing tools, but until I have a firm grasp on how this stuff works, I can't really do much.

Sampling / Re: The Best XRNI Renoise Instruments ?
« on: September 21, 2008, 06:39:58 »
The best, most realistic sounds will come from multisampling and extensive (and tasteful) use of pattern effect commands.

Listen to Venetian Snares' "Rossz Csillag Alatt Sz├╝letett" for some inspiration.

I know there's some 4GB of orchestral samples available online somewhere. I don't remember the thread, but I think it's stickied on 'http://www.idmforums.com'.

The Lobby / Hello All

Hello everybody. Long time Renoise user here. I decided I wanted to do some 'classic' tracking and started messing around with Milkytracker. I really like the community over here; everyone seems very helpful and generally good natured.

I'm also a programmer. I should be releasing some handy DS apps within the next few months, so if you're a Nitrotracker user, you should (hopefully) be seeing more of me soon. :]

Copious amounts of programming.

The Lobby / Re: Toy guns?
« on: September 14, 2008, 08:41:03 »
If I'm not mistaken, there are chips that you can store raw sample data on that will play back whatever you store on them. I'm sure that with some time and effort, you could replace the sound chip on your toy gun with one of those.

Of course, that would involve understanding how your gun works in the first place, and you might need to add some extra components. (the circuit probably requires a 555 oscillator)  It's definitely possible, but you'll have quite a time of it without a decent electronics background.

However, there is no way you'll get mods or xms playing on there. It's going to have to be wav or nothing.

Eugh.

Awful for so many different reasons.

(Oops, sorry for digging up the dead thread)

Tracking / Re: Piano Roll Editors (aka Dots on a screen)

I believe that Renoise just added an optional pianoroll.

Tracking / Re: What's your tracker / format of choice? And why?
« on: September 14, 2008, 07:14:44 »
Milkytracker and Renoise.

I've never been able to compose in anything but a vertical sequencing environment. I can't stand to pull myself away from the tracker interface. I began using a pianoroll, but I've always despised them.

Why would I want to use a traditional sequencer when I can have the efficiency of a tracking environment and all of the features of a traditional digital audio workstation?

However, I wish that Milkytracker would adopt user-definable keyboard shortcuts. I've managed to develop a slightly more ergonomic tracking setup in Renoise using my laptop's strange keyboard layout.
