How do I get this to include "rests" as part of the melody.
In Logic I created a script that would randomly remove notes, but I'd rather just do this in RapidComposer. :D

that generator doesn't have that as an option. The way that generator works, it builds the phrase based on a rhythm. You could then build a manual rhythm with a rest (aka a missing note) for that. The problem though, it would generate a rest at the same spot every time.

Another option would be to use the idea tool. Create several rhythms with a rest at about were you would want and use those to generate the phrases. (e.g., have each rhythm with a rest on each beat, or, say, 8 beats, so, 8 different rhythms..) The idea tool would pick a random rhythm from the list..

The new "Melody Editor" solves this problem, btw.. Just have to wait for that release.. (should be soon!)

Thanks for the info on this.
Actually I updated my script to do the following, if the current note is the same as the previous, I don't play the current note.

Now I get my "rests". :D

The Melody Editor will be part of v4.0.
Everyone can access it even today in the beta version. In 5 minutes I'll post a new beta update.
