Nice one ! I edited it to replace the end live.dials min value to 1 instead of 0 because when you reached 0, you had to retrigger the note to continue to hear it.

Thanks guys. Good idea madlab, let me know if that works for you. The minimum and max of each dial is obviously scaled depending on the size of the loaded sample - so I may end up setting a minimum for the scaling itself rather than the dial. Thanks for the feedback!

Great Sequencer! I'm not sure if I'm missing something, can notes be removed, and velocity altered? Can't seem to figure this out.

Hi sreardon,

Not sure what you mean, it's not a sequencer but a sampler instrument. You sure you're commenting on the right device? ;-)


Ben, setting a minimum for the scaling looks like a better option. Although what I did does the trick one may miss a too large part of the beginning when working with long samples. Don't have max and the device with me now but I'm going to have a look at this.

I meant that the selection could be too long...

I used this once and it was awesome. But when i opened up the session again the audio files were gone and when I tried to reload them I got no sound. Any ideas? I really want to make this work.

Hi Tarcason...

Sorry for the delayed reply - it doesn't seem there's any notifications sent when a comment is posted. There may be a few loose ends in the patch that cause this issue but I haven't had time to hunt them down. Have you been experiencing it regularly? One thing I've noticed is that sometimes the ADSR values get reset to 0 upon reload - especially after a crash. This means you won't hear anything and need to reset them. Contact me via email if you're still having problems
