I have a more complex workflow than this but I’d like to give a simple example please and ask for explanations
I have a chord track with two one-bar chords, G and Am
Now I have a VST inst track with two one bar parts aligned underneath those chord - each has a single one-bar long C2 note and follow chord track is off.
I’d like to make these C notes follow the root (or 3rd, 5th etc) of the chord track… Let’s say root for now.
So I selected Chords/Follow Chord Track and chose Root. I expect the first midi note to be a G and the second midi note to be an A.
Attempt #1 In the Dialog I leave “follow directly” selected. The notes remain on C2
Attempt #2 I turn off follow and turn it on again (having reset the notes to C3’s), this time I choose “Analyse Chords”, then chose “Root”. On my VST track which just had two C notes, under the G chord I get a C (not the Root of G obv) and under the Am I get a D… what?
<<UPDATE EDIT - I made a new project to upload as an example, and repeated the same steps and the notes are different!!! this time I get D and F#>>
Attempt #3 I turn off follow and turn it on again (having reset the notes to C3’s), this time I choose “Apply a known chord”, then chose “Root”. Since I only have C notes I reckon a C Maj will do. Under the G chord I get a G (woohoo) and under the Am I get a B… so confusing. What is going on.
<<UPDATE EDIT 2 - I made a new project to upload as an example, and repeated the same steps and the notes are different!!! this time I get G and A - bingo>>
The manual is not clear here if the track on which I “follow chord track” already has notes, for example a rhythm. What if the notes in my track were not 1 bar then 1 bar C but instead 1/2 C then 1/2 G in each bar. How should these be affected by Root Notes.
And how are slash chords treated. Presumably A9/B should see the root note as B?
And how in my example would Single Voice (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass, Soprano 2, Alto 2, Tenor 2 and Bass 2) work - what should I expect in my simplest of example - how should my C note be moved to follow a G and an Am chord with those options?
Ultimately I’d like to split the notes of four-note chords in a chord track across 4 instrument tracks one note per track.
