Sample Map contextual menu additions
« on: September 13, 2010, 15:35:12 »
When putting together ITI files based on multiple samples, one of the more tedious parts of it is assigning samples to notes. Using the Sample Map keyboard makes it much easier, but without the ability to drag-toggle the keys to the selected sample, there should be an easier way to assign one sample to a large range. What would make it easier is a "Map Sample to Remaining Notes" in the Sample List on the Instrument page, which would apply the given sample to the selected note and all notes afterwards.
Additionally, when ASSIGNING a sample to a note with the contextual menu, the current sample list only shows the sample if it has been assigned to some note currently. It should show ALL the samples available that have been loaded into the module.

I agree, I dont often do this because it takes too long and its boring. a way to shift-select and replace would be good enough.

It would be cool if you could drag-select a longer segment of notes in the Sample Map column, then right click to "Assign selected to Sample X". And if there's room in the layout, why not make the vertical Sample Map menu taller as well.

The "Edit Sample Map" keyboard is currently divided into 3-octave segments you need to switch between. Maybe a wider, scrollable keyboard would work better. Also, the mapped samples are now displayed as red spheres on the keys. Could also display a faint, faded sphere for the non-currently selected samples, so you could see what you are overriding and what keys are already occupied by another sample.
