Change preview note in sample loader on Tracker mini?

I’m just diving into the Tracker mini. When I try to load a sample or instrument, the preview plays a very low note (C0?). Is there a way to change that to something that would let me get a better sense of the timbre?

Hey! I tried to recreate this problem on my own Mini, but the only thing I could think of is changing the Middle C function in the Configuration settings. This happens with every sample you try to load? Including the Polyend samples that are tuned to C5? Because if those are playing back out of tune, then you might have to re-tag this as a bug.

Hey @eagereyes, a warm welcome to Backstage :slight_smile:

Can you confirm that you are having this issue with the Sample-Packs that come with the Mini?

Thanks for responding! So I just tried this again, and it’s apparently only some of the instruments, none of the samples I just tried.

When I go to Instruments/Synths, 4biter, Metallic Crock, and Sequence play very low notes (the rest are in the normal range, not sure if they’re all the same note).

I also got aisjam’s FM pack, and all the instruments I’m trying from that play super low notes in the preview, no matter if they’re basses, pads, or leads.

So I guess I’m confused why it happens on some of the instruments. Does the instrument save a preview note? BTW I haven’t touched my MIDI settings, and the middle C is set to C5.

Thanks for clarifying and giving some examples. I’m going to test this on my unit during the day and I’ll get back to you :slight_smile:

Yeah I get what you mean. Those more “Bass” oriented patches have a lower octave than others. Currently on the Mini it’s not possible to Change the preview note, but I don’t see that anyone has created a wish for this so I would invite you to do so. Give this a read and we can go from there :slight_smile:

Thanks, will do!

This caught me too, it makes it impossible to do any EQ processing on the sample since you’d have to EQ on something like 5 Hz or so which is then 40 Hz when played 3 octaves higher.

@eagereyes Did you file a request for this yet?
