The main reason for choosing the MIDI-OX method is for the ease of use. Once its set, any percussion part I write will simply work. No need for extra staffs, layering, transposing etc. It is sure to be the fastest method, and will result in no beaming anomalies.
Also editing later will be less cumbersome.
You are right of course, about this music in later years, or if people who don't have this set up view the file and not hearing it properly. For me it seems ideal as all I do is compose music for my band to play.
Choose channel 10. Enter the Input Value 1 min and max to 59 (This is the 1st space above the staff when using a drum cleff) Enter the Output Value 1 min and max to 57 (This is a soft crash symbol) Leave everything else as it is.
In this way you can remap any note to plas as any other note.
This gives me a bass drum, snare, hihat and symbol.
If you want to find more notes and the corresponding values, we need to monitor for them. 1st thing to do is set MIDI-OX to display values in decimal, instead of hexadecimal (since the mapper uses decimal).
In the Options menu, Data Display, unset both so not on Hex.
Now that that is done, use the Actions menu, and select Start Display.
Anything you play in NWC will not show up and you can read off corresponding values. We are interested in DATA1 only.
Thank you Ewan Your post makes a great deal of sense. I'd not really thought about cost per year either.. To be honest though, your 4th reason makes me feel real bad now, and that made me purchase the CD Can't wait for it to arrive now
I purchased NWC back in Jan 1997 via PDSL, but now I am unable to download and try the beta because I don't have a CD and did not order version 1.75 directly from you. I also suspect that I will not be granted a licence to NWC2 because of this.
In my opinion this is discriminating against some of your oldest customers.
There is NO WAY that I'll purchase the sowftware twice (as is suggested on the beta enrolement page) in order to get an upgrade.
