Summary0001023: Volume choppiness
Description

Hey, this is no problem, but would very very cool for the software to have. It is not of this software's nature, but for people like me using this as their primary DAW, this would actually be amazing!
You know how volumes are represented as values 0-64, the output is rather choppy because of the way the volume commands have processed. Would it be possible to have the option to make the volume intervals more smooth, almost like the MIDI macros. Maybe have it incorporated into the "Amplify" Tab. Maybe have a slider of varying smoothness, like 0 being the original "Tracker" sound and 64 being the smoothest. Just an Idea!

Thanks!!!

The problem is not necessarily the range but rather that it's not logarithmic. However, this will not change until there will be major redesign of the MPTM format.

Also, I hope you are aware that there are already volume slide commands which are basically the equivalent to smooth MIDI macros (executed once every tick).
You can also experiment by increasing the ramp-up and ramp-down values in the mixer settings but then many songs will sound muddy (it's hard to tell when a big volume jump is intended and when it's supposed to be smooth).

Logarithmic? I don't think that is a good idea. The volume scale (without any logarithmic/exponential modifications) should be used.
