I have a Performance with 8 scenes, and am in the process of chaining the various scenes so I don’t have to hit the scene buttons manually during live performance.
The intro (Scene 1) is 8 measures long, and I’d like to keep it that way if possible, but there’s really two measures that occur before the song actually starts. That includes one and a half measures (6 beats) pre-count, plus 4 eighth notes that lead in to the song.
If there were no Performance, I would just program the drum and bass ARP’s note range to exclude the lead in notes. That way, the ARPs wouldn’t trigger until I hit the downbeat note which is within the ARPs note range. However, with a Performance, I’m not sure how to get this to work. I’ve tried enabling Key On Start, but that doesn’t seem to have a note range option like the ARP does. I’ve also tried setting the Chain to 10 measures, but because of the two beat lead in notes, I have to linger another two beats at the end of the intro (which the singer finds quite confusing).
By the way, if there’s a way to get the Pre-count click to sound before it starts counting measures (like it does when recording), that would be cool too.
If this just isn’t possible yet, I’ll go ahead and submit something to IdeaScale so at least it’s on the docket for a future release.
