Oh, the meta-module. I guess you're right, haha.organic io wrote:Heh, I just now noticed this. I actually suggested the same thing in the todo list forum, just a few days before you did:Zhuinden wrote:If there's one thing I'd truly love to see in sunvox, is that you could create your own module, without just using a Sampler to record it.
As in, group select a bunch of modules, and say "This entire group is now One Module called Synth-1" for example.
And you could save that one module and reload it in another Sunvox project without having to save and load 8 to 17 modules - you could just load 1 and have the same sound.
It would be amazing.
The way I imagined it was like, you could select multiple generator/effect modules, and say "Consider this a group now". It would become one module. And what would be really neat is if inside this group, you could mess around with the networking just like normally, except there would have to be an IN module for the group (whatever comes in as input from other modules) and an OUT module for the group (whatever sound the group produces in the end). You could assign a default synth inside the group which should play when you select the group on the outside (for example, a MultiSynth inside the group), and... stuff like that. The point is that the interface would be the same inside the group as outside (you could "enter" and "exit" the group, though) just be at a lower level.
Basically, you could make one giant module out of many modules, you could save this as a sunsynth and reload elsewhere. It would be a new instrument.
Well, that's kinda how I saw it, I'm not sure if you get what I mean, but I hope so. Because if you did, you'd see this is a pretty cool idea, or at least rather useful.
