Right. Maybe RC could check the shortest chord used (1/4 or maybe 1/8) and would zoom horizontally to have a minimum width even for the shortest chords.
You cannot have an overview and detailed view at the same time...

Your suggestions are very logical. I added them to my notes.
Thanks!

the current way of specifying a separate bass note will soon be removed from the program. It was confusing and was not meant for inversions.
The good news is that version 3.4 (to be released TODAY :party: ) includes an inversion/voicing editor with many presets, so that will be the place to specify voicings.

Also, is there any way to specify the slash chord as meaning a separate lower bass note to be played, not just an inversion?

Yes, this is how it works today, the bass note is independent of the chord, it is a separate, added note. Now I don't see that a good idea.

Thanks,
Attila


Please don’t remove this. Slash chords are commonly used in notation and specifically indicate the bass note that should be played, leaving the treble voicing flexible for interpretation.

In other words, C/G does not mean a C chord in second inversion, it means a bass note of G with a C chord played above it in any inversion.

I haven’t played with the voicing editor yet so I don’t know how it would handle this, but slash chords are a useful and important notation tool.

Thank you for your input. Now I understand slash chords better, so it won't be removed.
Thanks,

I agree! I'm new here and i spent the last days exploring RC. And I was missing the slash chords! I'm glad to read, that they will be built in (again) as soon as possible. :tu:

Yes, the slash chords will return shortly in the Chord Selector. You can still assign a bass note to a master track chord if you right-click on a chord. Thanks for the feedback!
