Tips & Tricks / Re: How do I use Drumref in samples
Last post by Flurmy -
Many years ago, I think it was recommended Channel 10 be set to acoustic grand piano to get the right drum sounds.
The "right" drum sound? Maybe you mean the standard one!  ;)

Here is the selection that could be available changing the patch of channel 10 (as usual, all depends on the soundfont):
  • 00 = Standard Kit           
  • 01 = Standard Kit 2         
  • 04 = Hit Kit                
  • 07 = Room Kit { SC-88 }     
  • 08 = Room Kit { SC-55 }     
  • 16 = Rock (Power) Kit       
  • 24 = Electronic Kit         
  • 25 = Analog Kit { TR-909 }  
  • 26 = Dance Kit              
  • 32 = Jazz Kit               
  • 40 = Brush Kit              
  • 48 = Symphony (Orchestra) Kit
  • 49 = Ethnic Kit             
  • 50 = Kick & Snare Kit       
  • 56 = Sound Effects (SFX) Kit
  • 57 = Rhythm FX Kit          
  • 80 = Live! Standard Kit     
  • 81 = Live! Funk Kit         
  • 99 = Chaos Standard Drum Kit
  • 127 = MT-32 Drum Kit

You might want to check your system setup, Phillip, particularly your mouse settings.

It might be your hardware or your operating system.  I recently had to replace my keyboard, and the Microsoft keyboard software tries to govern my mouse too. The result is clicking, which used to be very quick, is unreliable and slow.   I use an old wireless optical Logitech mouse, an HP desktop pc running Windows 10  and a Microsoft articulated keyboard.  Compared to the old articulated KB that I used for 15 or 20 years, this one is a piece of cr >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(

Many years ago, I think it was recommended Channel 10 be set to acoustic grand piano to get the right drum sounds.  It's been a long time so I may be misremembering.

Also, you may need a little trial and error so see which note gives which drum; for instance, middle C will sound like one drum, F below that may sound like something else, A in the staff like something else again.  There's a lot of variety here, including lots of percussion toy noises.

You may be wise to use two staffs - one for the actual drum music, hidden but not muted, and the other for the visual display of the rhythms where you show x-head notes and stems, flags, beams, etc.  This one you'd want to mute.

Dicesi "tremolo".
Meno male per te che ci sono gli opportuni plugin per farlo, se no sarebbe stato una seccatura.
Prova ad utilizzarli. Se poi non ci riesci fammi sapere.

General Discussion / strange notes (for me)
Last post by lawrroc -
Good morning,
I am addressing you gentlemen musicians, I am not and you will have noticed it  ;D.
At the end of a long transcription work I came across these notes (see attachment). Time is a Common time (C). What should be done in these cases?
Thanks and a good weekend to you.

General Discussion / Re: NWC files not opening properly
Last post by PhillipUK -
My NWC song files are not opening properly.  When I click on a song file, it opens up the NWC program but not the song itself - it is just blank.  I then have to click on the Open File icon, search for and click on the song file, and then it opens.  Up until now, when I click on a song file it opens the song file directly, as it should.  Has anyone else had this problem, or know a solution?   
I have noted the same problem but found that double clicking (slowly) does open the selected file. However the timing between each single click is critical. The issue is timing and feels like a BUG but is it NWC or Microsoft ?

Object Plugins / Re: MIDIcontroller
Last post by Mike Shawaluk -
Now that the plugin ID "fl" is assigned to you, you should replace the zipped file with the unzipped file on the top message of this thread. That way the "Manage objects" command in NWC will be able to update peoples' systems when you release updates to the object.
