Granted. Though i meant was that if you happen to use looped samples anyway*, you also may get some short notes this way as a side bonus. A lot less useful than i thought now that rainwarrior taught me the use of the == stop. That makes their use limited to sub-step note lengths, percussive addons, staccato gaps and the like.lidnariq wrote:Yeah, that. The loops are really only important if you want looped/chip samples.rainwarrior wrote:If not looping a sample, you are not really limited to integer divisions like this, you can use any pitch at all for that.
*I think the main reason to go for tonal loops is to conserve space.
Yeah, it's quite doable to organize them as a few somewhat different sounding voices by grouping if you'd want to, or just focus on one characteristic that works for the song/songs.rainwarrior wrote:[...]a lot of redundancy in the set, and if you pick samples with divisions that are close to each other they should be closer in sound as well
I spent a lot of yesterday messing about with the samples. At first i looked at bytes per non-overlapping note as a sort of value, but then came to prioritize that all samples would be within a couple of hundred bytes. + for the 'value' to work best, you kind of need to know what notes you're going to use.
