Summary0001251: Missing Fasttracker 2 commands for MPTM

I and nihilism talked about how amazing the xm-format is with it's note-off functions, that would be amazing if the .mptm format one day also would be capable to:

  • A delayed note-off command for the effect column. It is possible in IT but to much less grade than it is in FT2. I.e. you can only do a delayed note-cut on a row with a note in IT, while in FT2 it is also, thanks to Kxx, possible to do a delayed note-off on a row with a note
    * An configuration-setting that makes note-fade work like in FT2, iow immediate trigger on note-off (not waiting for the volume-env. to finish or loop)
    Not so long ago I noticed that this is already possible to achieve. When you put a normal loop on the last envelope-node, note-fade will be applied before the envelope finishes (since it never will due to the loop). Though I first thought it wouldn't apply to the pre-loop section, but it actually does (thanks to examining one of madbrains latest s3xmoditminia modules :D)

Aside from that I got one more suggestion by remind from Saga Musix:

  • Envelope-position Offset Effect-command
TagsNo tags attached.
Has the bug occurred in previous versions?
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

As mentioned, adding ~~~ (note fade) in addition to === (key off) allows you to fade a note before reaching the envelope end. Given that fades tend to be slow, starting the fade a row earlier or later usually doesn't make an audible difference, so I suggest using ~~~ for the time being.

Yeah didn't have that in mind for the moment when I wrote the issue. I know=== .. .. ... followed by ~~~ .. .. ... or vice versa works, only a little unelegant in my opinion but I can live with it :). I don't know if === .. .. S72 works, that would in some cases be better to use if it does.

S72 will only affect past notes, i.e. not the active note, even if that note has already received a key-off event.

The "fade despite unfinished envelope FT2 style note-off" was solved way before I first thought of this subject at all and thinking it wasn't possible. Now I've discovered. See the description for notes :)
