It behaves correctly here. If you enabled left hand only, the left hand part is displayed and regenerated at the end of the loop. The right hand settings are not changed, so when you enable the right hand again, it will have the original notes. I could not reproduce this one. :(

I do notice though in the Piano Chord Pattern generator that regenerating at the end of the loop does not respect the user's unchecking of either Right Hand or Left Hand.

Instead, the regeneration seems to take over and always turn on, regenerate, and sound both the Right and Left Hand.

Hmmm. Maybe you were on Mac and it's a Windows thing?

Here's a video link.

No narration, but the piano output audio starts partway thru. You'll at least see what I'm talking about.

I see! You disabled the left hand then the right hand but did not press 'Apply'...

:dog:

OK, I now see how Apply and Auto-Apply work here. Thanks very much!

FWIW, to me turn on/off "the sound of the hand" and turning on/off the "regeneration of the hand" are logically two distinctly different operations each of which I would ideally have control over.

IOW, if I for example get a Left Hand sound I want to keep hearing, I would like to turn of the "regeneration of the Left hand" while still hearing it and continuing to regenerate new versions of the Right Hand.

Tweaky, I know - for your consideration! :D

Good news! The UI flashes have been fixed, so I'll have a beta version for Apple M1 tomorrow if all goes well.
Thanks!

The Apple M1 build is working well, except it has an unexpected UI issue (flashes). At the moment I don't know why and how to fix it.
Do you have a beta for the Apple M1.
I'd be testing the MIDIFX part of it. Does that have the UI flashes issue?
That's great news. :D

RapidComposer v4.3b10 is available (macOS only!)

This one is for macOS only. Fat binaries are included for the standalone and plug-ins including both Intel (x86_64) and Apple M1 (arm64) architectures. In the version string you'll see "arm64" when running the native M1 version, otherwise "x64" is displayed.

Please let me know if you find any issues.

Thanks!

Anyone tried the Apple M1 version already? Here is a new beta version, this time for Windows only:

RapidComposer v4.3b10 is available (Windows only!)

Improvements:
  • First release of hardware accelerated UI: smooth scrolling everywhere with acceleration/deceleration
Please let me know how it works. The version string under 'Support' should display 'direct3d' is acceleration is available.

Thanks,
Attila

Hi Attila. Re upate above. I can't seem to load any vsts onto tracks nor open any compositions with vsts.

RC shows "Loading" in the track inspector > Preset
The vst loads ok in reaper so it's not the vst.

I'll check further.

Cheers.
Mike.

Two things, otherwise RC Beta it's working pretty good in Logic as a MIDIFX on my M1 MacMini.
First, can you also make the pkg installer Apple Silicon, I notice it wants to install Rosetta 2 which I'm not going to do. I have a Intel MacMini for Intel apps, but my M1 MacMini is for Apple Silicon apps.

Second, I notice on the first pass everything is fine as the notes are turned off but if I leave it to loop, right away the notes get hung.

First pass, all notes are off

Once it loops, the notes are hung right away. I can make a video of this if you'd like.

An update on this.
If I make it a 32 bar, when it loops back, no hung notes.

Hi ValliSoftware!

Many thanks for trying the M1 version of RapidComposer! :tu:

I did not realize that the .pkg file had a "HostArchitectures" setting! I managed to fix this today.

I'll definitely check the hanging note issue!

Thanks!

Thanks.
So far, this is awesome in Logic.
What I like about this MIDIFX version is I set the instruments in Logic and since I have customized scripts I've created, I can apply those to each individual instruments. :D
