RapidComposer v4.2b3 is available!
  • More modern bar position editing is used in the Timeline Inspector, and in Loop Options
  • Display a suggestion when importing monophonic MIDI files: you get better chords by harmonizing the imported notes, than with the MIDI chord detection.
  • Fixed "Convert To Percussion Generator" functionality (action available only in percussion tracks)
  • Fixed: "Channel 0" is never displayed for plug-ins, channel count goes from 1 to 16
  • Internal rework

"Convert Phrase to Percussion Generator" was implemented in v3.5 but the BIG REWRITE (v4.0) introduced a bug in the conversion. It is fixed in the latest beta version, v4.2b3.

The "Convert to Percussion Generator" button appears only for percussion tracks.

Thanks,
Attila

The percussion generator really lacks the velocity fader for each instrument, especially when it is an SF2 kit. For example, here is a very loud snare playing ..)) This is certainly not urgent))

and more about the percussion generator (for the future, of course). Presets of settings for each instrument are very much needed (it is not possible to remember how I tuned the hi-hat yesterday)). Today I will not post any more))))))))

Hello Attila!
Yes, the percussion generator works very well now. I would like to add that I do not have enough solo buttons in it on each instrument (after all, if I have a drum kit of 16 instruments, then in order to play only one I need to mute 15 of them). And there is still a very lack of an option for hi-hats, so that out of three (closed, open and pedal) only one plays during generation ... But maybe I would make two different non-overlapping snares and a couple of different shakers (and also not overlapping). Probably it would be something like a mono mode for a group of instruments,maybe with a random selection of notes from the group?. Well, the volume of the velocity for each instrument of the drum kit. Thank you .
PS And by the way, the percussion generator can be released as a separate instrument (program)!)
