I am using RG v19.12
I see the toggle button for crescendo/decrescendo option in notation editor, with the
explanatory balloon "Adjust velocity to follow hairpin dynamics".
I am wondering if...
1) the feature actually works and has any effect on the playback. I'm not
hearing a difference toggling back and forth
2) if it does work, whether RG is compounding the velocity already explicitly
stored in the sequence, with the extra adjustments it computes for crescendo
I think you might have missed a (probably not-so-obvious) step. The
button you refer to is actually one of the options for most important
button which is the one with a paintbrsh (?) like icon and is at the
left of the one(s) you are referring to.
So essentially, that button will apply what is selected to its right.
By apply I mean that the, for instance, actual velocities of notes will
be modified (so this is a somewhat 'destructive' action, although of
course undoable or revertible for velocities by doing a Set velocities
from the adjust menu).
You can verify this by opening the velocity ruler (button with a rainbow
colored ruler) in notation editor, select the interested notes, then
click on that button and you should see the velocity bars changes.
Personally I use quite often the one for creating accents on certain
beats which is a nice way to make midi playback feel a little more
'human' in certain cases (as well as a good starter for getting accents
on e.g. drum parts).
Hope this helps.
