Support for crank organ arranging - MIDI distance between equal notes checking/enforcing
Hi all -
// Edit: As my first question got drowned out, I removed it and opened a new thread.
maybe someone can help me, I do have a possibly extreme question about "Enforcing a minimum time (typically 1/15th of a second) between equal notes":
The scores for crank organs are exported as MIDI files (to be punched into paper; or played on a MIDI-capable crank organ). Because of the pneumatics or mechanics of such organs, it is necessary to separate two subsequent equal(!) notes by a specific amount (for a typical 20er organ, that would be about 4 mm; at a roll speed of typically 60 mm / second, that is 1/15th of a second). Two different notes can of course "touch" each other or even overlap.
Is there a way to force this distance into the MIDI file? Yes, I saw in the manual that the PRE allows for such finetuning; but this would, as far as I understand, have to be done note-by-note - I would hope that there is some "automation support" for such "minimum sound distancing" for all notes in an arrangment.
Thanks a lot!
