I should have said ‘way less than 100 … maybe 60.’
I also believe far more than half of the loops are pitched … it is the minority with straight drumming, but as you probably know, even most electronic drums are in fact pitched.
The pitch detection plug in: doesn’t that just read out note pitch? Are you saying it will average note pitch, including polyphonic, and make a key suggestion?
I appreciate your work around suggestions and have used most of them in other contexts, but, c’mon, something that could have been easily and usefully included … or ‘baked in’ as you say … in the loopmash collection wasn’t.
It should have been and certainly should be going forward.
I’m not too worried as I have a large collection of acidized loops to use anyway.
But I, like many, also have a lot of unacidized wav file loops. That’s why I believe MediaBay should have some basic built in pitch detection. You apparently have the technology with variaudio anyway, no?
