This conclusion puzzles me, because I don't think it
fits the symptoms.
Remember that I said that the first time I played it
back, it sounded fine?
One can't be 100% sure of their recollection of an
event, but this is
how I remember it.
I started recording, and was pleased to hear the
(chords vs. melody), thinking "Ah - it's working."
After stopping the recording, I was pleased that it
didn't crash on
hitting the "Stop" button (which it used to do before
you fixed that
problem months ago).
Then I played-back the entire recording, and it was
perfect - no missing
chord notes (like it used to do months earlier).
So I saved the file for reference, feeling good that
the problem was
fixed. My memory of events here is not clear - I may
have re-loaded the
For some reason, after saving it, I decided to play it
upon-which I noticed many missing chord notes, to
which my thoughts were
"What the (expletive deleted)?"
The next day I examined the results in more detail,
seeing the missing
notes in the matrix (and notation) editors. That
I exported the file as a MIDI file (.mid), so my
onboard sequencer could
play it. On playing it with my onboard sequencer, I
noticed the missing
chords were there, but they were not continuous notes
- if they were
tied, the ties were lost.
I remember there was a prior problem you (or someone)
exporting MIDI files, where somehow the note-off event
exported immediately after the note-on event of the
following note. I
conclude that the fix for this earlier problem was
causing it to export
the MIDI file without the missing notes.
But the significant thing in this long-winded e-mail,
is that given the
sequence of events I observed, It appears the chord
notes were messed up
in the process of saving the ".rg" file - not in
