Hey guys, I've been wondering about something regarding the music module and fm-pac.
In moonblaster the x command is the only command that actually changes the sound you're using,
increasing or decreasing the "feedback" total level of a sound, while a track is playing.
if you create your own sounds using the voice editor,there are of course several parameters like the ADSR ones that can alter the sound.
Now I know that there aren't any commands in Moonblaster that effect those directly,
but are both soundcartridges even capable of doing this in a programmed manner, like the x command does ? (one that would say, change the decay rate).
Wondering if this is a limitation in MB or one that's hardware based.

I haven't confirmed this but I suspect the limitation is MB's.

Changing register value affects immediately.
However, of course, actual result depends on the phase of pronunciation.
e.g. Changing decay rate will be significant only during decay phase.

Very good idea/question! It could be really nice to have some sort of control over these during playback. But no idea if it will be usefull. I'm putting it on the idea list for TTFM.

sweet Smile will ttfm actually support both the music module and fm-pac ?

ah yes that makes sense of course. Though often you can change the a and b value of both
operators while making a sound in the editor. Might be nice if you can type commands that will
let you change the values in the tracker, so you can make more sound variations with an instrument.
