The AudioFile Processor plugin is used to play shorter samples. It can host rather long samples, but you need to add similar long notes in piano-roll, so it becomes impractical fast. For longer samples, our Sample-track offers better usage. This is the AudiofileProcessor.
Almost always referred to as AFP
The main controls that you know from all LMMS instruments are of cause also available in AFP, but in addition we have these: |
From left to right we have
Third dial is end position of the sample playback
You should now be able to realize, that you can select any piece of a sample with the controls for start and end, so you can in a way cut a sample up in sub-samples. This can be automated, and used very creatively.
To the right of the dials, we have 5 buttons
The last button -perhaps best described as two triangles, cover a very cool feature!
When enabled, your sample will start in reverse, and then seamlessly go into normal forward playback! Very cool effect in risers and sweeps!
Next to the Folder-icon we have the Interpolarization-selection
This is default Linear
This setting controls the accuracy of the position of 'missing' points in the wave-shape
Interpolarization does not influence the output, if you use the default note A4, however! -If you choose a different note, it does.
The lover the note is in Hz, the more Interpolarization is done, and then it matters!
The best setting is Sinc, but that use a lot of CPU-power!
Default Linear is good, and has decent CPU-usage
None means that there will be no interpolarization, and it influence low-notes significantly! It is however almost without CPU-influence. This setting can be used if you want to have a bitcrushing type of effect. Experiment with it for things like spoken sentences, for a game you are making, or some strange sound-effects, like very old audio-equipment.
If you just use A4 you should not change the setting, but simply use Linear!
When there are no pitch-modulations then Linear wont use more CPU than None, but have better quality, even though the difference is very difficult to hear.
