One sample per key
« on: April 03, 2009, 14:19:09 »

Not sure if this has been raised already, but it occurred to me that I would love to have a feature whereby you could lay your samples out across the keyboard, one sample to one key. This way you could quickly play in drum patterns in step-record mode without having to move over to the sample panel to select the different sounds. I know this would get me making some freaky business a lot quicker that is possible at the moment.

I think this would be classed under '.xi instrument' support. Some other people have been asking for this too, so I guess Tob might be on it, or planning it. Let's hope so :)

Ok - sounds good. What is an .xi instrument? Is it just a format for saving sample banks cos this happens in an .xm anyway doesn't it? Sorry, I don't know a lot about the ins and outs of tracking!

As far as I know. .xi's are Fast Tracker II instruments, which can contain multisamples (someone please correct if i'm wrong, I've never used Ft2, coming from a protracker background ;)).

 Nitrotracker doesn't support these types of instruments yet, from what I have heard.

Heck i'm not even a DS homebrew user hehe but I thought I'd pop in with some info anyway.

Well, I've heard that he's making the next update open source (my sources are classified :P  ;) ). So, people will be able to do what they want once that happens...

An .XI instrument can hold up to 16 samples, which you should be able to map to different keys in a tracker. Provided the functionality exists in it.

It doesn't support .xi yet, but it's possible to map multiple samples to an instrument. Check out that little "+" sign next to the "ren" button and you're on your way

Andars, that totally hadn't occurred to me - and I had no real use for multi-mapping samples before. This is fantastic!... Now if only I could turn off Chinatown Wars long enough to do some music...

Feature already exists, no need to add to the issue tracker
