Summary0001200: 1/96th MIDI File Import Notes Quantize

It would be really nice if the specific Quantize 1/96th Notes option for MIDI Import was provided.

Sometimes, it is really useful being able to import patterns in the form of MIDI files. However OpenMPT's MIDI File Import feature doesn't support Notes 3/4 time quantization, so the feature is rather useless if the notes in the pattern are based on 3/4 time.
Importing MIDI files with notes quantized to 1/96th grid can result in long patterns of 96 rows: that's exactly what I need.

Thank you very much. Love making music with OpenMPT.

There are two separate issues here at hands:

  1. 3/4 time signature. OpenMPT will always import MIDI files as 4/4 because supporting different or more than one time signature in MIDI import would add a lot complexity than I'm comfortable with to add.
  2. Quantization: I guess it would make sense to add 24th, 48th and maybe 96th quantization to address your problem. But note that you can already choose any quantization amount you like by going to the Advanced Settings and setting the MidiImportQuantize option to the desired value. 96 seems a bit excessive for most files, maybe try 48 first.

Setting the value of MidiImportQuantize is what I needed.

I definitely need to work with pattern data that determines note information up to 1/96ths while running every row as a single tick.
I failed before to notice MidiImportQuantize in the value list; my bad, sorry.

Thank you so much for the response.

I have added 1/6th, 1/12th, 1/24th, 1/48th and 1/96th to the options for the next release.
