Summary0000066: Ability to stretch samples to a given number of song ticks (rows)

I have an idea, which may be useful for song writters: the ability to stretch samples to a given number of song ticks (rows), I mean not by time-stretching but with changing the default playback frequency (the speed of playback). It is annoying to calculate it manually everytime.
The way of doing it is like this:

This functionality will be handy in the sample editor window.

Did you have a look at the Pitch/Tempo lock option in the instrument properties? You can use that to automatically correct the playback frequency according to the current BPM.

"Pitch/Tempo lock" is usable to change the playback frequency of the sample locked to the song's BPM changes. But it's not exactly what i need.


I have a sample containing 4 beats (16 ticks) cutted out from a 96 BPM old music:

I'm creating a music at 125 BPM with 4 ticks per beats:

I want to play the sample in my song syncronized with the beats of the song:

I need to calculate the required (new) initial playback frequency of the sample to do this.

After this calculation and setting the initial playback frequency the "Pitch/Tempo lock" option is great to keep the frequency syncronized with the song's BPM changes.

I second this one. LOL especially since I essentially requested the same thing here.

This issue can be marked as resolved (and then closed), because "Time Stretching" feature seems to be correctly implemented in the Sample Editor...

But the whole point of this request is to allow locking of a loop's tempo to the song's BPM when the loop does not have a precise tempo and without using time stretching, just simple pitch shifting. I.E. Specify the length of the loop/sample in number of rows or beats, and it then stays synchronized with the host tempo.

As Diamond says, the original request would still be nice to have, especially for compatibility with some other rare formats. So I will keep the issue open for now.

I like the idea very much and i would use it too from time to time if the function is avibal
Streching samples by ticks and rows sounds very useful
