Changing Instruments/Samples
« on: October 12, 2008, 20:07:46 »

(First Post by Me)
How do you change the instrument/sample while playing in MilkyTracker?

I tried

X-X .X .. ...

but it didn't work.  Please help.

Welcome.

You're attempting to switch samples on the fly without triggering a new note. That is not possible in .XM files or in MilkyTracker in Fasttracker 2.x playback mode. You can however do that in ProTracker 2.x playback mode (find it under Options) but that means working with .MOD files and their special limitations. And more or less stick a "4 channels max" limitation on top of that because I'm told no PC trackers/players ever really supported this trick.
