Hey everyone, I’ve encountered a (hopefully) interesting issue… I tried to be cheeky and load “sample chains” into my MD, with the hope that I could essentially plock the STRT parameter to get several sounds on the same channel, thinking that as long as they were evenly spaced, and grouped as square numbers, then they’d correspond directly to the rather coarse parameter settings…
However, it didn’t quite work, and I couldn’t even figure out why, until I looked at the manual just now:
STRT - Controls the start point of the sample. The parameter
is exponential, giving a very fine control over the beginning
of a sample.
This certainly threw a spanner in the works! My evenly spaced samples clearly don’t work with this method. Is anyone emulating sample chains with MD? If so, how are you doing it? Or is it all too difficult and I should just get an octatrack/digitakt instead?
It’d be nice to see a graphical representation of what the STRT parameter corresponds to, or even a table where each parameter setting corresponds to a percentage…
