.IT with sample drawing
« on: June 03, 2009, 00:11:11 »

I am currently using milkytracker for editing and mixing chiptunes. However, i would like to start using the .IT format, mainly because it has NNA (and some other features such as channel panning). The problem is no .IT able tracker i have tried has a sample editor with sample drawing abilities. This makes tweaking the mix very difficult, unless you settle for using standard chip samples or zapping other tracks. I am still stuck with the .xm format because i consider sample drawing essential.

Does anyone know some way to resolve this dilemma? Nagging the openmpt coding team?

I doubt OpenMPT is going to give you sample-drawing capability. There are, however, a couple of ways around this:

1. Do your sample-drawing in an external tool (like Milkytracker), and then load these into OpenMPT.
2. Get yourself a VST that supports sample-drawing (a quick search at KVR turned up this, which I haven't tried, but is free, and might do the job).
3. Use VSTs to generate the sounds, rather than drawing the samples directly. :)

If you really want to see this in OpenMPT, you can probably open a feature request at the Modplug forums, but as I say, I'm not convinced that it'll get implemented. :)

You don't have to open a feature request, because

4) This is going to be supported in OpenMPT "soon" (don't ask me how soon "soon" is)

Yes. I've opened that feature request some time ago because I was constantly being nagged (by joule :P) to implement it and I think it's useful anyway. :P
