Try https://varietyofsound.wordpress.com/ plugins, free, but high quality, only 32 bits, but this is not a problem in Openmpt.

Thanks for the info. I also own a Roland W30 but the cursor knob and floppy have died and I'm too poor and lazy to fix them at the min. :(
The RX950 doesn't seem just to add "crunchiness" it kind of adds a warmth to breaks which is instantly satisfying by turning the out down and input up.
This is purely subjective though, but sounds good to me. :P
I know Modplug can downsample and mangle samples awesomely I've messed with it for years. Just thought I'd give a heads up on this plugin for the lazy like me. ;)

Rx950 sounds crap on 909, 808 kicks and if you put it on the master, but as I said it brings instant gratification on certain breaks (for the lazy). Shame there isn't a demo version  :-\

I know a software plugin isn't gonna sound like hardware through a mixer. But as effects plugins go, I was pleasantly surprised by it.
I didn't expect it to make my music sound like my heroes from the 90's either lol

peace

You're welcome. Have fun making music. :)

I'd like to add that if you actually do use the piano style keyboard, it will be far easier to quickly enter notes once you get the hang of this.

I agree. Also, entering sharps and flats the way I was first thinking would be a pain. I am getting great advice on this forum and I am already starting to have some fun.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to reply. I really do appreciate it.

Kind regards,

I'd like to add that if you actually do use the piano style keyboard, it will be far easier to quickly enter notes once you get the hang of this. So by not doing this, you will severely slow down your workflow which will mean that you spend more time to enter notes rather than to come up with melodies.

When you start with the program, this is not really going to be a problem. But once you get a bit of skill, there will come a point where this will become a problem for you even though you won't actually recognize this.

I recently had a similar experience with another program where something didn't work as I wanted, tried my best to make it work the way I wanted, which kept consuming energy from me and severely slowed down my workflow. When I finally was like, Why is this not working, and I tried the way they designed it, my speed increased 20 times and suddenly everything made sense.

If you have trouble finding the notes, I would recommend either buying an inexpensive midi keyboard and use that to enter notes, or get a 2nd keyboard and add stickers to the keys so you know what the C, D, E, F, G A, B, C... are.

Also, do note that it is quick to jump octaves. With the piano style keyboard, you can have 2,3 octaves available at the same time, which is usually more than enough, and using the / and * (IT style keyboard mapping, don't know what it is by default) you can quickly change the octaves.

OpenMPT's default keyboard map even allows you to use 3 octaves at the same time if you really need that, but is less of a piano style layout, so that may be harder to use.

Add note spacing and the arrow keys and you can even quicker put in a melody. I can write a melody for a pattern in under 15 seconds consistently. If I had to type C and then a 3 for every note, I would most likely require up to 3 minutes to write that same melody, and be drained by the end, not being able to write more melodies without taking a break first.

Help and Questions / Re: How do I delete a sample from a song?

press the delete key in the sample editor..

I couldn't find a delete key in the sample editor but I did click delete on my computer keyboard and it deleted the sample.

Thank you for the tip,

Anything you ever delete from a song is just deleted from that song, not from where ever you imported it from. So yes, you can delete it from the tree view, or even simpler, press the delete key in the sample editor..
