Help and Questions / Re: Tutorial help - "Insert" - am I missing something?

Hello, and welcome to oMPT :)
I was thinking maybe some screenshots of each step as you go along will help us see where you might be going wrong.

General Chatter / Do you know Fearofdark? Was/Is he known in the scene?

Just discovered the guy on YouTube, he has a huge following, 300k views on every video, huge Bandcamp sales. Do we know him? The music is excellent, although if this sells that well, why wouldn't Manics of Noise sell the same way?

Either way, great stuff.

Hello and welcome to OpenMPT. Did you maybe select the whole channel or parts of the channel? If you press Insert, there will be as many rows inserted as there are in the selection. So make sure that there is no selection and just the edit cursor is placed at the correct place.

Help and Questions / Tutorial help - "Insert" - am I missing something?
« Last post by 6radley on January 27, 2021, 21:05:42 »
I'm learning the basics of OpenMPT right now and I am going through the tutorial. I've just gotten to the step where we are trying to program in an echo without a plugin, and everything seems to be going great until I get to the "press Insert 3x" part. When I hit insert, all of the notes in the column dissapear, so when it says "you should notice that the notes in column 8 are..." I'm like "what notes? Its a completely empty column..." I'm following these tutorial steps button by button but I think this section might be incomplete or misleading because I dont understand what I've done wrong.

Help and Questions / Re: Pitch sample without affecting length/speed?

And to make this solution even better, you can also apply the Pitch Shift operation to sample selections starting from the next OpenMPT update. :) I completely forgot that I only implemented that option for time stretch, not pitch shift.

Other pitch shifters like Rubberband do something similar and re-sychronize at transients.

To avoid destroying the original Attack of (for example) a kick you can copy the sample cut away the trasient, pitchshit (I noticed that a high quality and low FFT setting works good for kicks) and copy/paste it back to the end of the original sample. Now cut away the original release part of the sample. Yes, its not a one click solution but it can give good (at least interesting) results.

Please note that it is simply mathematically impossible to build a perfect pitch shifter or time stretcher. There are a few commercial ones that work surprisingly well despite these physical limitations, but it will never be perfect. Autotune may for example work well with vocals but I have doubts it would get the job done for kicks and stabs. You can give Rubberband a try (which is free, but not compatible with OpenMPT's license so we don't use it), but I can tell you that both "classic" ways of implementing pitch shifting and time stretching (namely resynthesizing the frequency spectrum with fast fourier transformation, and temporal overlapping of small snippets of audio, both used by the pitch shifter and time stretcher in OpenMPT respectively) do not handle drums very well. It's just in the nature of time stretching to smear transients.

What may be more helpful in your specific case is editing the samples by hand, e.g. to apply a fadeout to make a kick shorter, or delete small bits of it, or copy&paste bits to make it sound longer. I personally would never use a time stretcher for that.

Buy autotune and load the samples there? The pitch engine in openmpt is not the best but is usable for many applications.

Doing this will usually make it sound echoed/reverbed and rather strange for me. I'm using the .IT format for most of my work and attempting to pitch stuff with that never sounds like the 'original' but pitched, it sounds like an off recording of the original sample.
