Post your questions about the WaveBots Editor here!
Thanks for the feedback DustedAsh3!
I have encountered the first of those issues you describe. For me, the issue is that the memory runs out when using the 32 bit version with a 44.1k sampling rate or higher.
There is a log file generated that can be viewed by selecting File -> Show Log File. Usually, there is some hint to be found in that file, such as an error message or stack trace.
It would be very helpful if you could send me the content of the log file after you manage to trigger any of the bugs you encounter. It would also be great to get the template file you used (with .wbte extension) and the intermediate song/sfx format (with .wbrt extension) and what version you use (32 or 64 bit, free or full version).
Even more info can sometimes be found if you turn on all the first three options in File -> Settings -> Debug, but if the render fails like you describe, it is likely that some of that information is missing.
Now that I write this stuff down, I realize that all this could be handled with a bug report feature that I should add to the application :)
Again, thanks a lot for the feedback!
There is an undocumented feature that can raise and lower notes in the scale.
I haven't included it yet in the documentation, so it probably has some issues ;)
For a major scale, you should be able to write "V_R1" to get an augmented dominant chord. The 'R1'-part raises the 2nd of the scale, which in this case happens to be the fifth in the chord.
You can also use 'L' in the same way to lower scale notes.
It is possible to generate empty midi files by unchecking the "generate notes" midi option.
It is useful when you only want to generate the chords or voice lines.
I must've accidentally unchecked it sometime and have been generating files without notes by accident, lol.
Thank you so much for your help! This program is truly incredible and innovative.
The length of the song is determined by the song structure and the different length and count parameters.
If you want to make the songs longer you can take a look at the song structure for the "Sentimental" song template, which uses some more parts (and also probabilities for them to exist at all within a song). Then you can also change the various "Length and Counts" to modify the number of possible phrases within each part and also the number of measures for those phrases.
I know that this is rather tedious, and I wish that there was a more intuitive option available for controlling the song length.
Hey! Thanks for the reply-- no worries. Now that I know I can design with that in mind. It's a really cool app. I have this midi chord pack, with all the phrasings labeled, I'm gonna try plugging in the chords (iv, v, etc.) from one that has 8 instead of four. Thanks!
