LFO Sync Speeds - make slower

  • This post is deleted!

  • @d-healey Uuha... Found the answer . It is impossible to make Tremolo or Xfer Records LFO Tools kind of plugins with HISE. 🙂
    Tada... Only with JUCE? I can't make it 😉

  • @ustk So this isn't very tricky to achieve via the source code (seemed better to follow Christoph's sample accurate calculations contained there!).

    So in hi_tools/hi_tools/MiscToolClasses.cpp - line 805 is where you can add in your own sync time calcs (see the other entries for a guide)

    And then in MiscToolClasses.h - line 2029 add in the names for the TempoSync knob (make sure the names you use correspond to the new entries you put into the .cpp file).

    Example below (I've had to invent some names 😆 )

    void TempoSyncer::initTempoData()
            tempoNames.add("32/1");          tempoFactors[ThirtyTwouple] = 128.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("16/1");		tempoFactors[Sixteenthuple] = 64.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("8/1");		tempoFactors[Octuple] = 32.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("4/1");		tempoFactors[Quadruple] = 16.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("2/1");		tempoFactors[Double] = 8.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/1");		tempoFactors[Whole] = 4.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/2D");	        tempoFactors[HalfDuet] = 2.0f * 1.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/2");		tempoFactors[Half] = 2.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/2T");		tempoFactors[HalfTriplet] = 4.0f / 3.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/4D");	        tempoFactors[QuarterDuet] = 1.0f * 1.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/4");		tempoFactors[Quarter] = 1.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/4T");		tempoFactors[QuarterTriplet] = 2.0f / 3.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/8D");	        tempoFactors[EighthDuet] = 0.5f * 1.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/8");		tempoFactors[Eighth] = 0.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/8T");		tempoFactors[EighthTriplet] = 1.0f / 3.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/16D");	tempoFactors[SixteenthDuet] = 0.25f * 1.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/16");		tempoFactors[Sixteenth] = 0.25f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/16T");	        tempoFactors[SixteenthTriplet] = 0.5f / 3.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/32D");	tempoFactors[ThirtyTwoDuet] = 0.125f * 1.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/32");		tempoFactors[ThirtyTwo] = 0.125f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/32T");	tempoFactors[ThirtyTwoTriplet] = 0.25f / 3.0f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/64D");	tempoFactors[SixtyForthDuet] = 0.125f * 0.5f * 1.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/64");		tempoFactors[SixtyForth] = 0.125f * 0.5f;
    	tempoNames.add("1/64T");	tempoFactors[SixtyForthTriplet] = 0.125f / 3.0f;
    /** The note values. */
    	enum Tempo
                    ThirtyTwouple = 0,
    		Whole, ///< a whole note (1/1)
    		HalfDuet, ///< a half note duole (1/2D)

    Is this worth making a pull request? I'm not familiar with the process.

    TBH it would probably take @Christoph-Hart all of two minutes to implement 😆

    ... So far the issues I've found are with the Delay not using the new sync times, and the potentially destructive scenario for existing projects as currently the TempoSync knob's values will be different to before. A potential way around this would be to make the TempoSync knob more like the Pan knob, in that it has a negative value, and store the new (slower) sync times on the negative side.

    Works nicely on the arp.

  • @DanH It's a nice solution, but it'll break compatibility. enum is index base, and tempo knobs are index-based too (0 to 18). So even if you set tempo-like knob ranges to 23 (18+5), old projects will be shifted down by 5...
    The only way not to break compatibility would be to put them at the end of the enum (but it's dirty), or somehow make a dedicated function...

    Although negative value as you said might be a solution, but I don't know C++ enough to tell if it works with enum. But it's a nice idea 😉 Try it and tell 🙂

  • @ustk Right - so what is an enum exactly? Can they be negative too?

  • @DanH A search online will give you much more info on enum than I can...
    Apparently, enum can be negative as it is just an integer. So try -5, so "Whole will still begins at 0...

  • @ustk It shouldn't break compatibility, that's what enums are for... so each enum is a named constant with a value assigned, all you should have to do is reassign the values. Unless people have used "magic numbers" in their scripts instead of the enums.

  • @ustk oh yeah lol, good idea 😆 trying now

  • @ustk

    ThirtyTwouple = -5,

    didn't work, anything other than '0' and HISE will build but crash upon opening

    I tried keeping 'Whole = 0,' earlier and that sets whole as the first position on the knob (so nothing below). Obviously the '0' designates the start position of the knob but it doesn't look at anything below it

  • @DanH @Christoph-Hart would you consider implementing the slower LFO speeds into HISE? I reckon its a reasonable request, electronic producers have a need for these 🙂 😗

  • @DanH You can already do this with scriptnode I think

  • @d-healey I haven't tried but it's more about getting the continuity with the TempoSync knob and existing projects. I've got a load of Global Modulators!

  • @DanH said in LFO Sync Speeds - make slower:


    on what commit you did these changes?
    latest Layout doesn't export Instruments 😕
    do you have a stable version?

  • @Natan said in LFO Sync Speeds - make slower:

    latest Layout doesn't export Instruments

    Yes it does

  • @d-healey Going to build now
    Just made the Changes on A version of New layout to check if Things going Good Here with temmpo Knob. 🍻👏

  • @DanH Excellent Job, Big up man on the new Half-speeds Tempos 🙂
    Clever move

    and I Added the 128 To The End of The lines on both Cpp and .h Codes,
    it showed up 🙏 🚀
    But the timing is not Correct

    Going to try This One and see if SpeedsUp 🤩🙌🙌
    tempoNames.add("1/128"); tempoFactors[HundredTwentyEighth] = 0.03125f;

  • @Natan good luck!

  • @DanH This is Strange 😒 1/128 Has no Effect, i Moved the line down, Below The 1/1 on both source codes, and arp still not picking it Up, it sounds like 1/64

    Any idea?

  • @Natan snippet?

  • @DanH Dan, It's just a Sine wave genrator + An Arpeggiator In Midi.

    The 1/128 Tempo Value Is There, But Hise won't Pick up the Speed.

    I guess we Have Some Limitations on Speed Up, Or @Christoph-Hart Can give a Hint Here
