Sample lose tuning after application restart

    Hi,

    I am using Polypone to play long loops (up to 6 mins) of playback.
    In that term, I am not using it for typical sound instrument, but for playing recordings of music.
    I am tuning every sample to be on the correct pitch (i.e. "Correction Cents"). I change the pitch until it sounds good.

    The samples seem to lose the tuning when I restart the software.

    I am using Linux (Ubuntu Studio 20.04.3 LTS).

    Anybody know why the tuning is lost?

    install a wave editor, adjust the pitch in there and save your .wav files.
    Polyphone only saves .sf2 files

    Hi,

    I don't want to change the pitch of the WAV at all. My Samples are recorded at the proper pitch in the first place.
    I want Polyphone to play the original wav without changing the pitch whenever I click a key on the MIDI keyboard.

    My first problem is that Polyphone play random pitch once I assign the "root key" to a sample.
    So, to resolve it, I tune the pitch of every sample with "Correction\Cents" and Save.

    However (my second problem), once I restart the software and load the Saved SF2, the tuned pitch of the sample is lost.
    I can see on the interface the Correction\Cents value I configured on each sample but when I hit the MIDI key I can hear it is completely out of tune. Eventually I have to tune the pitch of every sample again and again whenever I restart the software. This turn the whole thing unusable.
    It looks like a bug to me.

    Basically, I would be very happy if I could set samples on Polyphone to play the original WAV without manipulating the pitch at all.

    (BTW, I am using the Ubuntu Studio distribution with Jack).

    Thanks!

    so what are you tuning for? tuning is changeing the pitch.
    if you map a sample to the middleCkey (60) and assign Rootkey 60, you will hear the genuine pitch of the sample on that key.
    if you map that same sample to the key a semitone higher and assign Rootkey 61, you will also hear the genuine pitch of the sample on that key.
    and so on....
    if you map a sample to to one ot more octaves and set Scale to 0 you will hear the genuine pitch of that sample on all those octaves, no Rootkey needed.
