Make supersaw instruments, or Unisonize any single-sample instrument

the parameters & "what they do":
Detune count = 1 to 7, makes extra saws (times 2) (detune steps)
"One Tuned" decides if the base sample that stays on finetune = 50% = 0 deviation, is on (volume 0dB) or off
Detune = 0 to 127 max detuning of saws

Slope types determine how the detuning / volume drain / panorama deviation goes per step
Width = max panorama deviation of course (ping pong: detune + and - switch left and right every step, if off highs are on right and lows on left)
Volume Max / Min: max = max volume drain, at last step; min = first step volume drain
2 notes:
if you have "one tuned" turned off (how could you!?) the min value is calculated 0
if you have min > max all the volumes will be max.

User mode:
If you have an instrument selected with a sample and a sample mapping in it, the tool will auto-guess User mode is in order. this allows you to duplicate your sample with detuned versions. of course this works best if your source sample is panned in the center, volume on 0.0 dB, mapped correctly, etc.

Due to a limitation in Renoise that I was not aware of, it is advised to use this tool with max 5 'detunings', or 6 if you turn the "One Tuned" parameter off. Higher numbers of simultaneously playing samples will not be played with consequence.
Version with keyboard shortcut coming up soon.
