I feel like it's a little odd that renoise gets a 25mb limit when .mptm is stuck with 12.5mb. If there's a reason for this I'm not seeing, then I have no issue with it. But I feel it's a little silly as it stands

It doesn't solve the problem but I guess we could say the same for furnace and pxtone, which are limited to 12.5mb too and can sometimes need a lot of space for samples.

We can probably add lgpt to these two as it's sample-based but I never tried it so we'll need someone else to confirm it

i wonder if this has anything to do with sample compression or lack thereof on renoise's part, but i don't really know

if it was totally arbitrary (which i doubt but hey idk really!) i would honestly rather see the renoise limit reduced to match, rather than other formats raised... that is already a crazy amount of space imo. you can easily fit like a hundred good samples. you can fit stuff like whole-ass recordings or stems. 12.5mb is already a pretty lax restriction, but restrictions are part of the fun. 25 is at the level of "just upload whatever you want" lol.

no change at all is fine too i think. just my 2c since you brought it up

good idea! mptm is rare enough imo that this wont make storing files any more cumbersome on the server

renoise64k when?

@02FD idea makes sense, specially when we submit renoise entries made on openmpt

renoise compresses samples from wav to flac - you can see it if you extract the files from the xrns (it's just a zip file)

also as a person who just fit stems into a renoise project, i would like to see the file size raised for the other formats. that being said, it is probably unreasonably big lol

At least this attempt at requesting a file size increase for a format isn't backfiring horribly '=~=

I honestly have no horse in this race, I wouldn't mind seeing larger maximums for all the above mentioned formats but also think they are fine as is...
but anyway one theory I have for the larger renoise size is that Renoise can have pretty thicc multisample instruments with different samples for each note and velocity. those can balloon pretty quickly

Oh! I didn't know that. OpenMPT can certainly simulate that by just storing extra samples but yeah it has no capability to do that itself

the sample map does that in it and mptm but not for velocity, just for note
