Default Re: Additional or specialty Template files for Notation Musician and Notation Compose

Hi friends,

I found that the problem with the Jazz Quartet.not template was that the note duration adjustments were off. The note duration adjustments for the file are such that the notes are so "tight" together in the MIDI performance that there is not enough time between a "note off" event for the one note and the next "note on" event to allow the second note to sound. The Note Duration assignments were not adjusted properly for the template, and the problem only shows up for consecutive notes of the same pitch, not for consecutive notes of different pitches.

If you have files that you've already edited that have this problem and you want to "rescue" them, you can do the following:
1. Open the song file in Notation Composer - you'll need to do this for each song, as you can have different adjustments for each song, but the steps are shorter for subsequent files

2. Click the Piano Roll tab.

3. Use Region/Select a region, and then click OK (this will select the entire song by default).

4. Now use Region/convert region to selection of notes. This will then select all the notes in the song for editing.

5. On the Piano Roll palette tool bar (third "level"), click on the far-left button "Edit note duration adjustment table" (or type "eda" shortcut). You will see a pop-up dialog table similar to this one:

6. Comparing the screen shot above to your Note Duration Adjustment table, enter the proper adjustments in the table for your file.

7. Click "Save as default" and then "Save and apply". This will (a) save the new values as the default and (b) adjust the notes in the open file to proper playability.

8. For further files, after opening the file and following steps 2, 3 & 4 to get in Piano Roll and select all the notes, click the Edit note duration adjustment button (or type "eda").

9. Click "Restore default", then "Save and apply". This will (a) bring up the default table and (b) fix the notes in this second file (or other files that you open.)

10. Lather, rinse, repeat

Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.
