BluGenes - FWIW I could not replicate what you describe above. For me, nothing is heard in Preview when the phrase is emptied out as you describe.
interesting..

be sure you have a sound setup in your settings.. Just out habit, I just use the default sound font
click.

I may have to do a video to show case it, forum description is hard to show what I mean..

If you set the rhythm to manual and then clear the rhythm.. (you can clear the whole rhythm by right clicking the very first rectangle) If you apply this edit, which results in an empty phrase, ...
Working in a new composition, and doing just the above with the Melody Generator, I find that if I then go back to another Rhythm: selection (e.g. Generic Rhythm) then it is no longer possible to use the lightning bolt to generate new rhythms.

It seems the something about clearing the rhythm when Manual Editing is operative messes things up internally.

I have RapidComposer-4.0b13 but when I update to RapidComposer-4.1b10 it prompts for a serial.
Hi crossovercable,

v4.0 beta versions worked with the v3 license key, but all versions after v4.0 require a new license key. I have sent out e-mails with upgrade info last November, which can also be found on my website.

Thanks,
Attila

Hi sj1,

this file works well here. It can be copied with Ctrl+drag, ghost-copied, copied with Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V, I don't know which copying did not work. Please let me know if I misunderstood something.

Thanks,
Attila

Hi,

I've got a whole directory of drum phrases that cannot be copied once dragged into the workspace.

These were imported into RC originally back in RC 3.x. Could that be a problem?

I've attached one of the phrase files as an example.

Yes, I confirm this did not work well. I fixed this embarrassing bug now.
Thanks, BluGenes!!!

The bug is, the rhythm preview isn't working correctly..

Now, I only tested this with the melody generator, but, it probably exists in all the generators..

If you set the rhythm to manual and then clear the rhythm.. (you can clear the whole rhythm by right clicking the very first rectangle) If you apply this edit, which results in an empty phrase, if you click preview, it plays a rhythm, even though you just cleared it.

Another test is to set to manual, quarter notes, and set just one note, then apply. It plays something different.


Anyone welcome to verify my tests please..

Thank ! It seems that something has moved with the topic of Articulations. I myself do not know how and do not really want to write scripts, but if it was framed in a special editor that would make the application of articulations simple, I would be very happy. Thanks again for this promotion ! PS. And not only classic instruments!)))

Wow! Just watched this Gene. This is brilliant and I could certainly find a use for that (happy to alpha /beta test).

I didn't even know you could assign articulations by note in the editor, so I learnt something else today courtesy of your video thanks.

The articulation file as it stands isn't easy to edit as a user, so having a gui to do it quickly and accurately is a boon.

Look forward to seeing how this one progresses. Thanks for sharing.
Cheers.
Mike. :)

Hi,

I've made a video that shows my issue. Hopefully it is just something I'm misunderstanding.

Nice video, and the editor will be very useful. It is especially cool that you can click on a key-switch in Kontakt and the note is filled. You already worked a lot on this! :tu:
BTW the rhythm preview bug is fixed now.
I expect v4.1.2 sometime next week.

Thanks!
