i was about to post a bug report because of
i get always this error message while drag drop midi from Reaper to RC
but turned out it was false message :)
(W7 x64 ultimate .. Reaper 5.941 x64 .. RC 3.6b3 x64)

Image

to me not a big problem but might be a confusing.

a question
is this is expected behavior?
..drag midi Reaper to RC..

if i leave the "Alt" key and mouse simultaneously
RC imports dragged midi as Absolute form
but if i leave Alt key a little later from mouse
RC imports dragged midi as Relative (Chord) form ? :ud: :)

...

and a report
RC to Reaper Phrase(s) drag drop and Chord Markers

When dragging from Reaper to RC you get the error as Reaper needs to write the midi to file first then the errors goes.

With the Chord Markers that is an option in the Settings/Miscellaneous/Midi Export/ Export Chords as MIDI Markers.
In Reaper you can Import chords from MIDI Markers then Marker to Regions.
Item: Import item media cues as project markers
SWS: Convert markers to regions
and if you want a large chord track
Script: X-Raym_Create text items on first selected track from regions.lua

Hi,
Thank you crossovercable !
so the error message not a bug or something avoidable then .. to me no problem i can happily live with it :)
...
i know the markers RC & Reaper Actions etc.
not so important its just seemed a bug to me
if you compare the RC Master Track Chords vs item chords in the Reaper
item in the middle starts with the F chord
but i think it should start with Gm chord
because this is Phrase(s) drag drop from RC to Reaper and the first phrase placed below to Gm in RC
i hope make sense

Sorry, yes I see what you mean now, RC would trim any blank bars in front of that phrase then write the markers starting from bar 1, so they are out.

While on markers, some dragged out are not correct so I need to save as midi but when I drag the file into Reaper I don't get the Chord Markers showing in the file in Reaper.

RapidComposer v3.6b4 is available!

Lots of requests and bug fixes in this update. I'll build v3.52 shortly.

Improvements:
  • Typing scale names is possible together with the chord in the format '(G minor) Cm'.
  • Phrase Editor automatically uses the tempo of the edited phrase
  • Keyboard shortcut for starting recording added
  • Experimental 'relative' chords are possible: define chords using scale steps
  • Renaming phrases is possible in the phrase inspector
  • MIDI Import page can be reset, new vector graphics buttons added
  • Recent compositions and MIDI files can be removed from the list
  • Files menu is not displayed in separate window (recent items were not possible to display when it was in a small window)
  • Fixed mouse click detection issues in the idea tool and fixed track vertical scrolling using the mouse wheel
  • Fixed: 'Apply Changes To Phrase In Library' did not work when 'Persist Name' was enabled, and it did not work at all when rhythm patterns were edited
  • Fixed: in the idea tool the length was ignored in the 3rd workflow (Generate Idea Then Harmonize...)
  • Fixed: Rotate Notes in tracks relocated the rendered absolute notes
  • Many other small fixes and internal improvements

Yes, this is a known behavior when dragging MIDI from Reaper. As crossovercable mentioned, Reaper creates the dragged MIDI file only when the drop operation completed. Therefore RC cannot show a preview, and the filename in the drag message is of a non-existent file.

Exactly! All the possible drag operations are described in the wiki:

Wiki i always forgot ! :dog:
please let me say .. i am sorry to bother you with this "lazy man's question" :oops:

Thank you so much for the new update!

just a quick catch:
in Idea Tool,
so far i tested
this area still has mouse click through to behind it
its allows to opens Rhythm and Variation browsers if the track(s) slide to behind

Image

EDIT
i swear last night i was reproduce this mouse through thingy but today that area seems ok
but this time some spot at left side of the "Select Scale" list opens the Progression Browser. :)
i am gonna sent the demonstration video @ info..

What would be handy is to have a on/off toggle transport button to jump back to play start position or not, to save going into settings to change each time, I know there is a hot key for this but the brain gets programed to press the spacebar to play/stop.

So do I, you are not alone :)
This page is worth reading because I collected all the possible drag operations on it. Sometimes modifier keys can be used which is not easy to figure out.
Thanks,

I am not sure if it helps, but you can change the default Shift+Enter shortcut to Shift+Space for this:

When you want to simply stop playback, you press Space, when you want to jump back to the playback start position, you press Shift+Space.

Thanks Attila, yes I have the hot key set to Alt-Space (I think that was from an earlier suggestion), but as mentioned my brain is trained to press spacebar play/stop going from one app to the other. But that's ok once I remember where it is in the settings I just go there and change it.

Actually 336... :help:

Well you have saved us all so much time with RC ! without it it would of taken me days to do what RC does in 5mins !!!

Again, really appreciate all the hard work you've put into RC and the all support you give :clap: :clap:

RapidComposer v3.6b5 is available!

This is a new beta version with fixes for some bugs reported in the last few days.
I encourage everyone to try the Piano Chord Pattern Generator which was improved in this update, and can create very interesting patterns. Make sure you use a rhythm generator (e.g. Generic or Schillinger) instead of the default boring 1/4 notes...

3.6Beta5 changes:
  • Fixed MIDI markers when dragging phrases
  • Many new chord and bass patterns added to Piano Chord Pattern Generator
  • Chord or scale assignment in the Phrase Inspector is applied to all selected phrases
  • It is possible to name multiple phrases at once
  • Fixed: clicking not visible elements were possible in the idea tool

I've been playing with Piano Chord Generator for three hours :D , I've only miss a dedicated right hand rhythm editor (I'm using 1+8 and chopping them with Nora) but otherwise it's pure genius

on mac, RC is crashing after closing the program 3.6b5
