How to create Trap Beats on OpenMpt ?
« on: April 02, 2019, 13:01:24 »
in sequencing trap beats , particularly the hi hats ,we have to input note as small as 1/32 , 1/64 to emulate that special TRAP beat fill. How to do this in our OpenMpt ?

You can either
- increase the tempo to have double the amount of detail available in the pattern or more. Depending on the format and tempo more you are working in, there are several ways to increase the detail: https://wiki.openmpt.org/Manual:_Song_Properties#Tempo_Mode
- use the Retrigger command (Qxx in S3M/IT/MPTM, Rxx in XM, E9x in MOD) to repeat a note several times per row. Please read more about the Retrigger command in the Effect Reference.

Also, you can use note delays (SDx in S3M/IT/MPTM) to add a small delay for an individual note in case you have just one note on one row that you want to start slightly later.
