After experimentation I have found it is possible to render a series of 256 wavetable frames on the Tracker itself IF you use the following method:
Set your note to PRECISELY
F0 -23 cents (aka M-23)
And render 8 bars at 323 BPM
8 BARS, F0 -23 cents, 323 BPM
I tried to make it easy to remember, check it out:
8 BARS = most obvious length
F0 = people say F is the lowest bass note
-23 CENTS, 323 BPM = “Minus 23, Three 23”
Then make a nice long 4 bar modulation pattern and: BOOM!
The only problem: to be really precise in the tuning we need more decimal places on the micro tuning. There IS still a tiny bit of drift.
Any suggestions for improving the drift would be welcome
Hi there! I have a question for the Polyend Polymind:
Is there a clean, easy workflow for turning recordings of my hardware synths into wavetables without having to use my computer?
I kinda feel like there’s some magic set of pitch/bpm values with a ramp envelope to generate a succession of 2048 windows if you can get the recording latency sorted, right?
Anyone know the recipe?
(making notes while I try to get this to work)
For 44100/2048 ≈ 21.5332Hz use F0 – 23c ≈ 21.5387Hz
For 48000/2048 = 23.4375Hz use F#0 + 23c ≈ 23.4339Hz
Let’s say we are working in 44100
2048 samples at 44.1 is 21.53 Hz or F0 -23 cents
256 windows of 2048 samples is 524288 samples
524288 samples / 44100 = 11.88861678 seconds (i think?)
8 bars at 161.5 bpm is 11.8888 seconds…
To make a wavetable you need 8 bars of F0 -23 cents at 161.5 bpm i THINK…
OK, couldn’t get my tuner to register a pulse wave that low, so I did it an octave up but it’s not QUITE lining up with the windows.
When I go to the WT Smoother it sounds best when i set it to 256 windows of 1070
Then when I apply the effect and go back to wavetable Sample Player mode it looks like the windows are all still off
OK, here’s as far as I got: Dropbox - wavetable standalone.zip - Simplify your life
So CLOSE… but yet SO FAR.
You have to NAIL the tuning exactly for it to work.
I did it again but rendering the Tracker’s internal wavetable synth and it worked pretty well. You could use this technique to print effects into a wavetable, turn a sample into a wavetable etc.
The only issue is the PERFECT detune value is in between -22 cents and -23 cents
