Problem Solved with Uploaded Samples & Octave Naming not working

Post by ElectricAlienCat »

Was uploading samples using the naming convention 'example_C5' and for some inexplicable reason
ThumbJam wasn't automatically setting the octave (in the instrument editor) for some notes to
what I specified in the filename. I tried renaming the files and all kinds of stuff and getting
very fustrated when it wasn't working or saving any manual changes to the octaves.

So, then I thought I'd start looking at the actual wave files to see if there are any differences from
working samples to non-working ones and low and behold when I zoomed right into the start of the wave I
discovered that the working ones had a tiny amount (like 1ms or less) of complete silence and the others were
starting into the sound and causing ThumbJam to disregard the octaves I wanted.

So there you go... always insert 1ms of silence before the start of the sound :-)
