General Discussion / MPC icon size/placement
Last post by Eryops -
I sometimes use the MPC for tempo variation to create swing.  Until today, the [mpc.tempo] icons were visible on the staff, but overlapped each other so that they don't take up too much space.  Today I started a new score and [mpc.tempo] is written out full length in each appearance.  Since there are 8 MPCs in each measure, this makes each measure take up half of the screen.  The bars are way too long.  How do I get the [mpc.tempo] to overlap so they don't take up so much space?

If you want to make a list what's important when you're programming:
  • 0:  Always start counting from 0.
  • 1: In lua, start from 1.
That was the hardest part of learning to create custom NWC objects... old habits die hard!

This is quite common with MIDI stuff - they start counting at zero instead of one - and it can be quite confusing!
Graham
And NWC itself sometimes does count from 1, someother times counts the same thing from 0...

Peter,

All modifications in the midi-stream remain even in new files (instrument changes propagate also in other files for instance) unless they are reset (by double F6) or when new midi events override the current values.

The reason why volume is reset is because this is a staff property and restarting will read again the staff property and thus the new volume event is sent.
Here is a default sound staff property as found in nwctxt format for a "new" file :
     |StaffProperties|Muted:N|Volume:127|StereoPan:64|Device:0|Channel:1
That suggests that also the pan parameter will be reset.

There is however no tempo parameter (unless you set it explicitly), so there is no real reason why this is reset also. But the default value for tempo is quarter = 120, Therefore, I suppose that this is always set by NWC, even if there is no explicit parameter.

Here is a zip file with 4 variants of diff output for the Hallelujah175/275 files (the CSV was created with the MIDICSV utilitiy found at fourmilab - the only such tool I know that works after G├╝nther Nagler's even older one stopped working some Windowses ago). Maybe someone can see and explain the 1.75/2.75 differences with that ... I'm currently involved with other projects (and problems), therefore I don't dig into this ...

Edit: The c175_275.txt seems most useful/readable ...
