The sample editor and pitch changes
« on: June 22, 2017, 11:16:09 pm »
Is there a reason why the different pitches in the sample editor in Genesis mode follows the same harmonic progression as the FM mult values? Why can't it just be 1 semitone for each number? Is there some technical reason or is it a completely arbitrary decision?

The sample editor and pitch changes

The actual reason is that I have decided that a sample editor is outside of the scope of this tracker. At least for now.

But you have 2 ways to change the pitch, but of course both ways have its limitations and cannot be compared with a full sample editor:

1) Playback rate changes: this will set the sample rate of the file, you can choose from 8000hz, 11025hz... 32000hz. This is how fast the sample will be send into the soundchip.
2) Pitch slider: This will only speed up or down by multiples of 2.

If you need something more specific, I recommend you to resample your .wav inside Audacity or another audio editor tool.
