Full Version: Sample Oscillator Retrigger

I recently asked this question and I figured this would be a good addition once there is time to add it.

As it is now I usually put an envelope on the volume out of the sample channels, but as retriggers on oscillators do nothing here's my suggestion:

Double retrigger just means it's on/off/on/off (or vice versa),
triple retrigger is on/off/on/off/on/off
etc etc, following the same "pattern" as the sample retriggers or gate retriggers but with a 50% off for each retrigger.

That way having an envelope tied to the volume of the sample channel retriggers perfectly in time and the retrigger on the oscillators actually does something. It'd put everything in the same place and it corresponds well to how retriggers work otherwise as well.


But not a priority thing, more a quality of life addition.
The retriggers on this thing is fire. Heart

Actually retriggers do already what you need for the oscillators with envelopes.
You either use gate on/off which would gate the envelope (Note on/ Note Off).

Or you use the retrig command with 0000 which would retrigger the envelope.

Or you use a table to do so and in this case you could also generate ratchetings (tripple retriggers etc)

I think that is exactly what you are looking for!
Also another solution would be to use one of the triggers for that.
Have an envelope for example sourced by Trigger/Gate6 and destination the volume of the oscillator.
Then let the trigger in the FX column do the ratchetings ( TRIG 06E2 for Trigger6, 2 times repeat ). This will fire the envelopes then which control the oscillator volume.
Only downside it that it needs one trigger output. But if you don't use it, then it doesn't matter.
you're right ofc these things work, i'm just being lazy while thinking the sample retriggering doesn't do anything anyways when in oscillator mode, so why not!

more like a suggestion, less than a request haha

The retrig command does retrig the ‘gate’. It’s not that it does nothing.
