Help and Questions / How do I delete a sample from a song?
« Last post by yeto on December 04, 2018, 12:22:06 »
I read the manual under "samples" and I don't see how to delete a sample after I have dragged it into a song from the MIDI library. Do I just delete it in the tree under Module 1 > Samples? If I delete it there will it also delete it in the MIDI library which I don't want to do? I still may want to use the sample at a later time.

Thank you in advance for any help and I am sorry for all the questions,
yeto

If I want to enter a note like let's say C3 I just want to type C3 on my computer keyboard and enter the note. How do I set this up?
You could open the keyboard configuration and assign "Base octave C" to C, and the octaves are already mapped to number keys.
You will still have to come up with a way to enter sharps/flats, though.

Also, how do I increase the number of channels. I am seeing 32 but I thought openMPT was capable of 127?
Open the Song Properties dialog.

Thank you for taking time to reply. This is all new to me and I appreciate your help.

I am new at this and I am sure this is not the best way to enter notes but I play guitar and not keyboards so I think I am at a disadvantage.

Help and Questions / Re: Does OpenMPT have "built in" samples/instruments?
« Last post by yeto on December 02, 2018, 16:35:40 »
OpenMPT comes with a very small selection of samples (namely used those with the example songs), but apart from that you will have to find your own instruments. We have prepared a small list to get you started here: https://openmpt.org/top_picks

OpenMPT also tries to find the default soundfont used for MIDI playback, which will then populate the MIDI library in the tree-view on the left. However, these are very basic samples, and I would recommend against using them. There are many better free sample sources and VST plugins that you can download.

Thank you for taking time to replay. This forum is the best.

Kind regards,

Does OpenMPT have "built in" samples/instruments? Like is there already a built in bass drum, acoustic guitar, etc.?

Thank you,

Old as heck track of mine, that i ended up improving step by step. Now, it sounds damn good (atleast to me).
The main focus was giving the music dynamic drums and pads for the unsuspecting factor, keeping the synth bass sounds tone and progression almost the same to give it sense for the going as expected factor.

Help and Questions / Re: Is it possible to have more than 4 notes to create a chord?
« Last post by yeto on November 27, 2018, 23:09:26 »
- If your question arises from the limitations of the chord editor: The chord editor is limited to four notes, but there is absolutely nothing stopping you from entering any addtional notes next to those generated by chord shortcuts. Or just don't use the chord editor at all.

Yes, that was my concern. Glad to know I can add more notes. I have downloaded the software and I can't wait to get started.

Kind regards,

[127-channels] X [one note per channel] = Yes you can definitely create chords with more than 4 notes.

However, the most recognizable chords really doesn't use often more than 4 notes. In most cases you can even let the bass take the root-note of a chord, then let any chord-instrument with only 3 notes take the rest. This is just a tip to save some channels when there is a lot of musical ideas :)

If you really go advanced with chords, then you really do need more than 4 notes. A Dmaj over Amin7 for example requires quite a few more notes and if done correctly sounds really good and can be recognized as both chords or as done by good musicians. But yeah, Most recognizable chords will use 4 notes, but you can also use the same note but an octave higher to get a more full sound which would technically be more than 4 notes. For example a string section occupying 3 octaves can use up to 9 to 12 notes and still sound really good. For example: C3 D#3 F3 A#3 C4 D#4 F4 A#4 C5 D#5 F5 A#5: 12 notes that can be played with strings (volume should be lowered of course) but will sound very rich and full for a Cmin7.
