Arp Noise Bug
« on: September 25, 2016, 12:25:44 am »
Not sure how to explain what happens here. Basically though, holding a key down while on the noise channel with an arp macro sounds completely different from when you put a note and play it.

They both sound wrong, I think. Holding a key sounds like the note is retriggering every step, and playing a pattern with a note doesn't sound smooth like it should. The squares sound fine though.

In the example module, pattern 1 has the arp macro set. you can play it and hold a key with instrument 0 to hear. Pattern 2 has it set manually with a blank macro so you can hear how it's supposed to sound.

Edit: Upon better examination, Holding down a key with instrument 0 is CORRECT playback, playing a pattern is INCORRECT only.

Oh dear, here we go again. Well, it seems Deflemask noise might be fully incorrect after all, in the way it handles something about retriggering or something else.

Tested with both VGM MM and Deflemask, I input the exact same notes in both and got different results. Not only that though, but like we did before, Deflemask has different pitch with noise than VGM MM.

I have:
G-6>>>C-7>>>G-7>>>G-6>>C-7>>G-7>>G-7>>G-7>>G-7>>etc. (and the equivalent notes in VGM MM) at 900bpm.
Deflemask seems to be retriggering the notes playing over and over again (constant G-7) while VGM MM continues, even though it sees the notes. As far as I know about the noise, VGM MM's behavior is correct.

As far as the pitch difference in the two, technically they both are incorrect, because they both lack the 10 octaves of noise, but VGM MM's noise sounds like the SMS noise should to my ears. :\
My guess is Deflemask is off by some 'semitones' in the upper noise frequencies (if that makes sense to you). Deflemask's Square tones in all frequencies are slightly off too. I'm guessing noise will match that then, since it's much harder to tell the noise frequencies apart until the upper frequencies.
