Summary0000986: Map to Successive Samples

The ability to map all notes and samples to the same value is neat. But, it would be great if there was a way to map samples successively. For example: If I map note C-0 in instrument 1 to sample 1, I would like to have a function that maps the remaining notes to the next set of samples. That is: C-0 1, C#0 2, D-0 3, … B-9: 120. Having to manually type them is tedious and leaves much room for error. If I had a way to map to successive samples, my time could be cut significantly and the margin for error could be almost eliminated.

Additional Information

I envision it as follows:
Instrument 1:
C-0: 1 (manual input)
[Insert keyboard shortcut here.]
C#0: 2
D-0: 3

Instrument 2:
C-0: 121 (manual input or carryover from previous instrument with keyboard shortcut from above)
[keyboard shortcut from above if not carried over from previous instrument]
C#0: 122
D-0: 123

The first sample in each instrument would need to be typed manually (unless a carryover similar to the pattern view's overflow paste can be programmed in that carries the sample map over from the previous instrument) (example: Pressing a shortcut key or key combination while in instrument 2 carries over from instrument 1, thus mapping the focused note to sample 121 and the notes below it to successive samples.)

Has the bug occurred in previous versions?

I cannot imagine any practical use for this, but you could write an SFZ instrument (requires OpenMPT 1.27 testing version), or once the scripting API is in place, this could be created almost automatically.

Thank you for the suggestion, Saga Musix. That is quite a nifty format. I can see that the <region> tags are the samples and that the key is the note on the sample map, in the range 0 to 119.
That does exactly what I am looking for. Thank you! Since I see the term "SFZ" mentioned only twice in the manual, I am guessing that it is a recent implementation. I was not familiar with the format until I saw your suggestion of using it now.

It's a recent addition but it's also not going to get any more mentions - it's not an OpenMPT-specific format so I don't see any merit in documenting it in our manual, apart from the fact that it is supported of course. I might document the supported opcodes, but that's about it.

You do bring up a good paint about the format not being specific to OpenMPT. Adding the supported opcodes to the manual is also y good move.
