It has been out now for a couple of days, and i’m telling ya,..
It rocks! The new envelope editor and loop function really make the homebrew DS application shine. Making music on the go has evolved fromheavy laptop wielding to lightweight DS juggling. Nitrotracker has really grown from a great idea to well, a VERY great idea. Hats off to you, Tobias Weyand.
Itwas one of the most wished for features on the users wishlist,looping. The loops act like you would expect from a tracker application. The only nag i could find was; looped sounds won’t reactto the note-off trigger. My experience with trackers has been limitedup untill now, so that could be the reason. (Edit: Just a one time bug, Note-off works fine) I fixed this by using the other new feature:
The Volume envelope editor. ADSR was one of my personal wishes for the nextupdate of Nitrotracker. It’s now included as of 0.4. And, you can also draw the envelope using the stylus.
Now i hope drawing samples will be included in 0.5. And maybe, just maybe, A Modulation source/envelope. Maybe i’m asking for to much.. :)
To celebrate the 0.4 release of this cool application, i made a sample-pack as an addition to the packs already available on http://nitrotracker.tobw.net/.
– A noise (drum) kit
– A synth Drum kit
– and a Saw-tooth. (C0 to C5)
Get it HERE. Enjoy!!
EDIT : Tobias Weyand just replied to my email. The sample pack is now also available through the official Nitrotracker website! :)
