Thanks guys, really helpful.
Conman, these midi tracks aren’t actually ‘played’ in the mix (although they could be to ghost note the analogue of it needed a little more punch) so I can keep them muted in any order I like in their own folder which I think gets around your ordering convention issue - they exist purely to notate (forgive me if this isn’t what you meant).
Vic, your shared track suggestion was especially great, another fantastic feature I was completely unaware of.
I do indeed want just a carbon (tab) copy of the notation above - on a bass clef/tab grand staff - so I can hand out comprehensive sheet music to musicians performing the pieces, so your way of doing it is pretty much right on the money. The guitar and basslines are recorded live but once it’s laid I create a ‘midi-version’ over the top to enable me to produce the notation sheets.
This last little trick is just the cherry on the cake meaning I can print or pdf it, tab included in the format the players are used to seeing in their various artist books. I especially like the ‘string-shift’ sub command menu on the TAB stave so you don’t even have to tax your brain figuring out at which fret the note is fingered when optimising the TAB stave - incredibly labour saving stuff.
So once again thanks. It’s really, really appreciated.
