Trouble making samples
« on: August 31, 2021, 01:49:32 »

I'm relatively new to tracking in general, and I'm trying to make some samples in Milkytracker. I'm trying to create a sample with the following steps:

* Create a new sample of size 16384
* Generate square waveform, volume 100, 256 periods
* Copy that
* Generate sawtooth waveform, volume 100, 0.5 periods
* DC offset that -50%
* Volume boost that 200%
* External paste phase modulate that

The result is in the zip archive.

It doesn't seem to come out correctly (the frequency changes towards the end, and it seems so sad...). Could anyone point me in the right direction?


(P.S. My attempt is in the "failure.xi" file, and what I want it to sound like is in the "slowphasesquare.xi" file)

Uhhhh, I realize that this is an old topic, but there's a much better way of creating a simple phase-shifted square wave.

1 : Create new sample size of 16384.
2 : Generate saw-tooth wave with 50% volume, and 256 periods.
3 : Highlight the generated waveform, and under "advanced" select "Backwards".
3 : Copy your new backwards saw-tooth waveform.
4 : Generate a new saw-tooth wave with 50% volume, and 255 periods.
5 : Right click the 255 period saw-tooth wave and click "Mix-paste"
6 : zoom in on the sample on the right side, and trim away the section of silence.

When you use this method; you don't have to worry about DC normalization.
The waveform is dynamically offset from the center-line as transforms through it's phase-change.

I hope this helps you. - HERB
