Help and Questions / Tempo conversion into MIDI file
« Last post by Lo Bellver on March 02, 2018, 23:48:22 »
I am working on songs for my next album on OpenMPT and then I export the channels into MIDI so I can use the MIDI file in order to work with other programs. The thing is I've noticed there's an issue with the tempo. When I import the MIDI file of a song that in OpenMPT in .it format has, let's say, a tempo of 120 bpm, on the DAW I use once I import the MIDI file the tempo is 120,738 or something alike. The tempo is slighly faster.

It is an issue because I wanted to use some parts of the song made with MPT and then export them to WAV so I could mix them with the rest of the song produced on a DAW, but this difference in tempo makes that a real issue. I could fix the tempo of the WAV but then it will change its pitch....

Any idea of what to do?

Thank you!

Every channel has its own channel volume.

Help and Questions / libopenmpt interactive: play_note volume issue
« Last post by EthanF4D on February 27, 2018, 14:50:38 »
Hello, I have a song with drum note C5 07 v64 -
I use play_note() with volume=64/64.0=1 but I notice that its volume is louder than the original song’s drum.
Are there any other volume controls that might affect this?

Okay guys, I know you just want to be helpful but at least try to read the initial post a bit more carefully. He mentioned that he cannot kill the process manually, and it's clearly mptrack.exe that's hanging, not a plugin bridge instance.

VST plugins and/or buggy sounds drivers would also be my two top suspects, although not being able to kill the processes (and the low memory footprint of 28K of those zombies) makes me tend towards the latter.
I doubt there is much we can do, but a memory dump of the process in this state would be helpful to at least confirm these ideas. You can create one by right-clicking the process in task manager and choosing "Create dump file" (warning: this file will be large, so compress it with 7r or rar if you are going to upload it somewhere).
As Saga Musix said, also happens at my side when I use Farbrausch V2 (which is known to be buggy). This VST keeps the PluginBridge32.exe hanged and I need to kill PluginBridge manually so OpenMPT can exit normally. Try to check if PluginBridge32.exe or PluginBridge64.exe are still executing when you close OpenMPT.
I even noticed that closing all songs with buggy VSTs may lead to OpenMPT get stuck between it and PluginBridge because leaves PluginBringe* on execution.

No, that's not the case, but Windows has had a startup manager for a long time but only few programs make use of it (much less than on some other platforms). It's an optional feature that a program can opt into. Of course if there's a bug in the implementation (which could very well be inside Word here), this might not work as intended.

Also, if you are on Windows 10 v1709, you should note that a reboot or shutdown when the program is still running will make windows relaunch the program at startup whether you want or not.
Huh, that sounds nothing but awful, if it's true for any program that isn't closed by hand before the shutdown. Good thing i stayed with 8.1

I am rather sure that Word integrates with Windows' restart manager (which does not just exist in Windows 10) though, which OpenMPT does not. Even if OpenMPT made use of the restart manager, it would not explain dozens of dead processes spawning on restart.

If this happens, it can become stuck in the boot sequence even if you close the program normally.

I had it so badly that Windows would open 3 empty word documents at startup and it was nearly impossible to make windows stop doing that.
