Tuplet Playback Issue

• May 10, 2018 - 05:02

Somewhat minor bug, but can be annoying when playing back scores.

I'll assume the whole percussion interface is being somewhat reworked with so many new features and playback samples being integrated for 2.3, so I thought I'd throw this out there. A lot of times when longer tuplets are played, the program doesn't play the first note; aka you don't hear it. For example, if you had two ninelets you'd hear ( )-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-( )-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9. I'm putting in excessive description cuz it's a bit of a weird bug. Measures 163-166 of the following score are a pretty good example:


Again, small bug, but it's definitely annoying sometimes.


I'm not hearing what you' are hearing, but I am hearing certain drums notes not playing. has nothing to do with tuplets from what I can tell - it just appears the drumset definition you are using does not include a valid sound mapping for the "Drum 2" note, so all "Drum 2" notes are silent on my system. I'm guessing maybe you are using a different soundfont, in which some other note doesn't sound, which is why you are perceiving it to be the first of the grouping whereas for me it's notes in the middle.

So, how was this score created - did you import it from another source, create a cutsom drumset, use a custom instruments.xml, a custom soundfont, ???

FWIW, if I add a new Tenor Drums instrument and enter "Drum 2" there, it works fine. I notice your drumset definition is lacking keybaord shortcuts, so I can see something is other than stock 2.2.1.
