Is there any chance to give current instruments accidentals?

A lot of music uses accidentals to play tunes. However, this cannot be done on our current instruments so our tunes sound off. Is there any chance to give our current instruments accidentals (most notably the #C #F and flat A)?

  • Hi Aaralyna, good question, it is an item on our own audio "wish list", so it's been discussed. But there are no plans to do this at this time.

    I mean, we already have F1-F5 in the game and there's 5 accidentals... Pretty pretty please?

  • This is something I've been wanting as well.
    Fibbing it only goes so far.

    But the real tricky bit is taking the 5 octaves most songs use and compressing them into 3.

    Yeah we really should have # Notes, we already have F1-F5! Why not recording someone playing rock bass etc.. C#, D#, F#, G# and A#? Then associating the sounds with F1-F5, dunno, is it difficult to program?

    Considering they buggered up the instruments in the last patch, my guess is yes.
