|0001557: Render OPL / VST instruments to (multi)samples
Since OPLs cant have individual effects on them, because we cant have nuanced panning on them and because of other limitations we have with opl based instruments I have a this suggestion which I imagine would be useful even after we have opls integrating perfectly within modplug.
This is the suggestion in full:
we have a button, doesnt matter where, either on the sample tab or on the instrument tab (but in the latter case obviously only if it is an opl instrument) - the button will open a window with specifications for fidelity such as how many samples of the different notes from the opl should be used, and stuff like bitrate and any other important stuff I am sure you can think of better than me. Then when the user presses ok instead of cancel or the windows X on the window (some hopefully optimised defaults could be nice) a sample based instrument will now be rendered.

heck something like this could possibly even be extended in the (probably far flung) future to include similar functionality for vsti...
maybe a more useful way to think about it would be as a bulk render to sample system that is specifically geared towards making usable instruments (as usable as is reasonable)... almost like a render to instrument system from opls and maybe in the future vstis... I think something like this was suggested for vstis a long time ago, but it does seem to make even more sense now for opls as well. I guess something like this, if applied to vstis would have to somehow know if the vsti is looping or if it has ended entirely, because from what my little brain cell has managed to grasp, vsts and vstis are a bit of a pain in the neck from the ompt host side of things so far since there isnt much commonality in the ways the internal programming of them are coded.
