Help and Questions / Re: Is their a way add MIDI effects to samples?

Oh now I see what you mean so the ending letters at the end of the macro determine how the macro behaves?. The example you provided was good and helped me understand how some of this stuff works now.




Thank you very much for your help!

Help and Questions / Re: Some soundfonts' sample mappings are suddenly broken?
« Last post by Alex TEHb on August 25, 2020, 13:00:48 »
Tested r13486 on 5 soundfonts. Of course, it is not an indicator, but there are no remarks!

Can be to eat sense to organize poll of users?

When importing multi-layers instrument from SF2 you want to receive:
a) only "strong" samles
b) to have all samles. I will choose necessary, and unnecessary I will remove manually
c) only "weak" samles

-----------------
I have not such wide experience. Whether there are situations that instrument contains not all scale "strong" and "weak", and is supplemented partially with any given?

I thank for an explanation.
I met it in VSTi. There I manually chose "strong" samples for instrument taking into account that they can always be lowered.
And ignored "weak" samples since their increase requires separate Sound Editor, or at least the Normalize function...
If to take both that and others in one tracker instrument, nothing will turn out!

You already wrote that at "silent" samles the compression of FLAC is better, but in my opinion they are less effective in songs...

The question arises:
Whether it is possible to turn off import of nezedeystvovanny samles? Not completely, and as necessary? (Separate tick).
I think, it should be discussed when we are able to test r13486...

I know nothing about multi-layers and your answer did not understand.
Simply put: Imagine you have a piano soundfont instrument which is arranged like this:

Sample 1: C-4 to B-4
Sample 2: C-5 to B-5
Sample 3: C-6 to B-6

OpenMPT always imported this correctly with three samples.

Now imagine a more complicated piano instrument like this:

Sample 1: C-4 to B-4, playing at volume 0 to 31 (soft hit)
Sample 2: C-5 to B-5, playing at volume 0 to 31 (soft hit)
Sample 3: C-6 to B-6, playing at volume 0 to 31 (soft hit)
Sample 4: C-4 to B-4, playing at volume 32 to 64 (hard hit)
Sample 5: C-5 to B-5, playing at volume 32 to 64 (hard hit)
Sample 6: C-6 to B-6, playing at volume 32 to 64 (hard hit)

As OpenMPT can only import one sample per note it previously imported just the "hard hit" (or "soft hit", depending on which order they appear in the file) samples and ignore the "soft hit" samples. If you wanted to use them, you couldn't do it without resorting to external tools liek Viena.
Now with OpenMPT 1.29, all six samples will be imported, but the "soft hit" samples will not be associated with any instrument. You have the chance to set up your own instrument to use them without using a tool like Viena, or you can simply delete them.

1336 - corrected! Thank you!
In subject 1338 I tried to explain that before when importing instrument I received 10 samles INVOLVED, and after correction of 1336 in the same instrument remained only 3 (!!!) involved and 7 uninvolved.
I know nothing about multi-layers and your answer did not understand. Also came to a conclusion that and it was conceived... :). Therefore decided not to continue a subject not to bring new mistakes because of not correctness of the translator... :)

I thank for responsiveness and the attentive attitude towards users!

Help and Questions / Re: Is their a way add MIDI effects to samples?

Here's what I would suggest to do:
1. Pick an empty fixed macro at the bottom of the dialog (e.g. ZFF)
2. Set its value to Bc0Ay - this will send MIDI CC 10 using the current channel panning (B = MIDI CC, c = current MIDI channel, 0A = CC 10, y = current panning value)
3. Use this macro (ZFF) in the pattern where you want to update MIDI panning.
4. Repeat these steps for any other MIDI message you might want to send. Please refer to the macro syntax in the manual to do that. Note that you can put more than one MIDI message in a single macro, e.g. "Bc0Ay Bc07u" would update both MIDI channel panning and channel volume at the same time.

Also will this work on channels playing sampled instruments or just VST/VSTI instrument plugins?
These macros will not do anything audible on sample channels while editing, but they will work as expected when exporting to MIDI.

I have attached an example which should hopefully illustrate the example above. You will also see the difference between Zxx and \xx in the example - Zxx sends a MIDI message once a row, while \xx sends one on every tick.

There was indeed an issue since OpenMPT 1.29.01.00 with instruments that have many key zones and instrument layers at the same time, leading to an incomplete import of the key zones. r13486 should fix this, soon available from https://builds.openmpt.org/builds/

Really, many instruments SF2 began to be imported in a different way (and often not to the best).
There were several issues you reported - issue 1336 was already fixed, but the fact that sometimes samples are imported without being associated to the instrument is fully intentional, as explained in the other issue you opened. To re-iterate, OpenMPT now tries to import all samples from all instrument layers, even if only one layer per key can be assigned to an instrument. This leaves you the choice to either delete those samples, or create more instruments for the other layers.

I join.
After updating till 1.29.02 I already asked this question on Issue Tracker. Also received the answer about the structure of multi-layered instruments of the making SF2. Because of my incompetence I did not begin to argue, but was not satisfied with the answer.
Really, many instruments SF2 began to be imported in a different way (and often not to the best).

P.S.
I want to specify that for the first time found this failure later after correction on subject number 0001336 in Issue Tracker.

Help and Questions / Some soundfonts' sample mappings are suddenly broken?
« Last post by foxley on August 25, 2020, 02:04:42 »
I updated to the latest version of OpenMPT recently and just noticed that several instruments in the Fluid R3 SF2 soundfont have broken sample mappings. For example, when importing the soundfont's first instrument (Yamaha Grand Piano) to an OpenMPT instrument, it imports 20 samples and almost all notes are mapped to sample 21, which is empty. Normally it has 2-3 samples per octave and maps them properly to note ranges.

I tried using this same SF2 that I've been using for years in sforzando and it works there, so that rules out some inexplicable corruption to the soundfont (also its date modified property has not changed).  I'm thinking something may have changed with the way soundfont patches get imported to OpenMPT instruments and now it isn't playing nice with some soundfonts... also this isn't happening to every instrument in the Fluid R3 soundfont, but several, which isn't good because I'm missing a lot of potentially useful instruments now.

Has anyone else been running into this problem with soundfonts?

I'm on the screen with the Zxx macro effects and that's where I'm stuck since I don't know what to do from this point onward. Also will this work on channels playing sampled instruments or just VST/VSTI instrument plugins?
