8 <h1>change_note()</h1>
9 <p>
10 Changes the MIDI note number of the requested note.
11 </p>
12 <p>
13 Changing the note number with this function only succeeds if the
14 respective note is new. That effectively means you should change the
15 note number before any <code lang="nksp">wait()</code> calls, and before
16 entering any loops that may execute your script for a very long time.
17 Because in both cases the sampler may suspend your script for a certain
18 amount of time and once your script got resumed, the respective event
19 and the resulting note may already have entered the sampler's regular
20 event processing chain and thus the note's note number can no longer be
21 changed.
22 </p>
23 <p>
24 Note that the new note number set by this function only affects the
25 resulting new voices, it does not modify the actual MIDI event.
26 That means the new voices behave as if the MIDI event itself was
27 modified, that is for the new voices the instrument's region,
28 synthesis parameter case and sample is selected based upon the
29 new note number.
30 </p>
31 <p>
32 However outside the scope of new voices the old MIDI note number is
33 retained. That means for example the newly triggered voices will only
34 be released later on if a MIDI note-off event was received equal to
35 the old MIDI note number (not the new note number), and also other
36 MIDI processing tasks of the sampler like
37 <i title="A set of regions where always only one of them is played at a time and thus a newly triggered region automatically releases the previous region (of the same exclusive group).">
38 exclusive groups
39 </i> (a.k.a. key groups), key based round robin and all other common
40 MIDI processing tasks are not affected by this function at all.
