MilkyTracker Support / Re: Couple issues I came across

Try Fn + Delete!

Word, thank you so much guys!

8ch, that post was brilliant. Sticky worthy IMO as well. Everything was explained so perfectly and the example was awesome and very easy to follow, thank you!!!  :)

One last question: Say you have a bunch of drum loops now that you have cropped and what not to make loop correctly-before we begin into resampling and what have you, what is a good suggested method to find out that loops original BPM? Trial and error in the tracker till you find a BPM where it loops accurately? I could just dump it in Ableton to see what it warps the tempo as, but that seems like it could be more steps than necessary.

that's right. except for C-6 playing eight, not C-4...
it is generally a good idea to make the loops as small as possible. 16 steps (or beats, as you say) is a good average. better 8 steps. using the resampler trick as raina described is very useful. i usually resample to values just below 10000 (don't want to go too crazy about this). if, after finetuning, resampling and finetuning again your loop just don't want to fit in, sometimes funktempo could be a solution.

Wait, don't we both mean C-3?

Also, resampling and funk tempo-are these natuve features within milky?

Thank you for the quick and informative reply!

What is the relationship between sample speed and pitches?
For example, if I were to tune a drum loop at C-4 to play for an even four beats, would this now mean that C-5 would play two beats (doubling the speed evenly) and C-4 would play eight (halving the speed)?

So I really want to start working more with breaks and 9xx madness and what have you. So I'm viewing a bunch of .xms and I usually see that people have a whole drum loop loaded as a sample into one of the instruments. Okay, that's fine, but I usually notice that the tempo of the drum loop is synced perfectly to the tempo of MilkyTracker. How does one go about doing this?

I read that there's no sync or time stretching feature in Milky, so what methods do you use to allign your drum loops?

(also, I'm well aware of the beatslicing each hit to a different instrument method. But that's not what I'm looking for with this here)

Any update on the status?

I just tried and yeah, you're right. There seems to be a bug in the WAV export that nobody noticed yet :)

Edit: It's not a bug in der WAV exporter, when I implemented Quicktime support on OS X, I totally forgot about the fact, that Quicktime will also replace the internal WAV loader. And the Quicktime WAV import seems to either incorrectly load the 8 bit wave sample or there is indeed a bug in the WAV exporter which causes Quicktime to incorrectly load the sample.

I will think about a solution.

Btw. it only happens on OS X because only the OS X version supports Quicktime sample loading.

Right on! Thanks for the quick reply and keep me posted here if you come up with any ideas! And here I thought I was making some simple n00b mistake...

Yup. OSX 10.4.11 Tiger on a 2006 Macbook 2,1 to be more specific. It saves it accurately if I save through the Instrument window, but through the Sample window it saves it as a wrong sample size, upside down waveform (have to convert it to backwards to have it look correct again), and it maps the original pitch to the lowest possible key note so C-4 sounds much much higher than it did when it was saved.

On second thought, I think I'm getting it...

If I save it as an instrument rather than sample, it's fine. Why would that happen, though?
