Re: [Rosegarden-user] Re mapped channels with no sound

Since the older examples you write of were installed, Rosegarden has made some changes to the way channels are setup. Beginning with version 10.02, Rosegarden no longer provides controls for changing the channel associated with each MIDI instrument Instead each instrument uses the same channel as

A slightly less crude approach is just to import the default studio into the file (Studio-Import Default Studio), then make whatever ever changes are necessary to get sound working ok and saving the file. I did this with Djer-Fire and it seems to be working ok. Apparently just making the changes

Btw, as far as playing a second ending goes (rather than notating one) RG will truncate a repeated segment as soon as it encounters any other segment in that track, so it's pretty easy to get it to play an alternate ending by simply plopping down the desired second ending as a new segment in the

The two most common reasons for this sort of thing are that either you have no soundfont loaded in your softsynth, or else that you haven't set up RG to route its midi output through the softsynth that you have. The solution to the first one will vary with the synth you're using, but should be

Probably the most efficient work around is to make your own sound font with the samples retuned to suit your purposes. The midi note to sample mapping of a font doesn't really require you to sound the note corresponding to the midi note number you've selected. Percussion fonts are one obvious

How would I go about rounding up the bar lines in a segment? It would not appear that a bar line is an event, since in jpff;;;'s CsoundExport code, all non-note events are printed as a comment line, and bar lines aren't there in the output. Same thing for ties. They aren't there either. If they

Csound is utterly indifferent to note names and accidentals. Notes are called by their frequencies (yuck), midi note number or most commonly PCH notation which is what Rosegarden exports. In PCH, octaves are integers and the notes within an octave are decimals, so that 6.00 is middle C, 7.04 is
