I was presuming I could select the slur and then in properties choose “hide” but don’t see it there either in Write Mode or Engrave. Note Performer 3 sometimes mis-interprets playback (making notes exaggeratedly short, etc.). Slurs definitely help but I’d like to be able to draw them but then hide them, since they’re only for playback purposes only. Thanks for any help -
So I take it there’s no way to actually hide slurs? There are actually many situations in which certain articulations or playing techniques are for the purpose of playback only but don’t need to be seen in the actual printed score (and where it feels cumbersome to have to maintain a second version of the score) - I’ll have to take stock of which things can be “hidden” since this would be something I’d likely do often to keep the printed version cleaner and simpler, but have the playback more accurate…
Another option is to define a new playing technique, e.g. call it “leg” and duplicate the legato definition in the NotePerformer expression map (CController 19, value 1). Then hide the PT. Just tried it and it works great…
[EDIT: a corresponding PT with CC19, value 0 must be placed where the virtual slur is to end]
Because using slurs for playback purposes only, would it be an idea to add a possibility to Playback mode instead to trigger legato playback? That way the notation itself would not need to be adjusted. Maybe something like selecting the piano roll notes and choose from a menu “legato”?
I’m still not clear the connection between adjustments in Play Mode and it’s affect on Note Peeformer’s interpretation, but I will experiment further when I get a chance (I recall making a deliberately “radical change” once to the actual MIDI data as a test while using NP and it didn’t seem to have an affect?)
