Very Basic Question
« on: July 24, 2008, 14:36:30 »

I have created an instrument and have put a key in the timeline, BUT the one note will repeat itself rapidly until i tell it to stop, how do i make it so the key will only play when i tell it too.

Sounds like your sample is looped, would disabling loop help at all?

I create a new sample, draw and then click on the box for, "forward", and it has the sound i want, but it loops it.

If I click on the box for "no loop", it doesn't have the sound i want, it sounds just like a beat and ends very suddenly but it doesn't loop.

Sounds like you need to create a volume envelope (instrument editor).

A sustained sample without a volume envelope will play endlessly, that's what you're essentially telling it to do. So yeah, make an envelope to play short notes that die automatically. But for more expression, you need to stop those notes manually so you can have different length notes.
