Actually, I really think the concept of groove level and variation needs to be extended to all components of Direct Music. For instance: Groove level for segment trigger or segment tracks Groove level for chord maps Groove level for Chords - scripted this in AC2 Groove level for band tracks As for using chord progressions with wav tracks, the way we've done it is to embed the chord progression in the segment with the wav track and play it as primary. Then, anything we want to trigger is done as secondary segments, and follows the referenced chord track. We then create all our chord maps as primary segments, and pick them based on scripting controls, which can look at things like groove level to determine which 'chord map' is appropriate.. -----Original Message----- From: Scott Morgan [mailto:scott@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]=20 Sent: Tuesday, December 17, 2002 2:47 PM To: directmusic@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [directmusic] Re: One for the suggestion books... Yup, I was dissapointed with this as soon as DX8 came out. I was suprised there were no wave tracks available in a style. Something else I have been wanting recently was a variation choices section for waves. That way I could have the appropriate wave play for different chords. With the current setup you really can't use chord progressions and waves unless you have the wave playing some kind of pedal. -Scott Morgan http://Morganstudios.com ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jason Booth" <jason@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <directmusic@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, December 17, 2002 3:23 PM Subject: [directmusic] One for the suggestion books... > > > Groove level support for wav tracks.
