Cool. I have to say that's a pretty cool picture you have there.

I've written a new entry, this time about tuning samples. People who have trouble tuning those beeps and blips may rejoice, as tuning turned out to be very simple, even pleasant, as it's so cool to hear those awful sines actually going in unison =) All that with just a couple of clicks!

I've read your update...

I think its much harder to alter the loop points, than to just tune both samples correctly as I've described to you :P This is especially the case with the more noisy shaped waveforms, where you preferabelly don't want to alter the loop points, or those you pingpong ;)

absolutely true, I have mentioned that in the blog. anyway, this blog is my experience, not a tutorial, so once I bumb into a new problem, I am handling it, so feel free not only to point out mistakes, but to support it with examples. I am very eager to see those noisy shaped waveforms. If you can, please give me a link to a tune that uses it.

Hmm.

Crashed Tears has some noisy shaped samples, especially the elec guitar sample.
Also my OVC entry has some noisy shaped waveforms. They produce a sharper sound :)

oh no way!  I love chip.

Remember that old song "chipndance?"  And I have this one that i dled from the free musics section today called like 'Chiphop'  They are totally rad.  I love the sound.  It's so cyber.
