Question: In ReaSamplOmatic5000, there are modes "Freely configurable shifted" and "Note (Semitone shifted)". What is the difference between these two? It seems they both are completely same.
Asked by Abhi (182.68.196.x) on September 9 2022, 9:19am
Reply on September 9 2022, 6:23pm:
    Freely configurable allows you to do microtonal shifts etc (e.g. want each semitone to be 1/24th of an octave? no problem!)
