Firstly, thanks again! Secondly, your FULL version works fine on my BB pedal!
A bit more background… When I set up Modern Love, I had made a fill (it’s in the version you have there) and tried using it also as a transition fill. It worked fine as a mid midi fill but only produced 4 beats of dead air when used as a transition fill. So as part of my trouble shooting I took those trans fills out, but the dead air remained.
Tried dismantling the song, re-assembling it with a new name, still the dead persisted. So I took out the transition fills but the dead air remained. I guess I sent you the version with no trans fill which gave dead air to me but it worked for you. Very odd.
Also of note, I updated to the latest version of BB pedal firmware prior to starting this project, so I can’t say it was the update that caused the issue. BUT this was the first song I tried to set up since the update and I’ve never had a problem like this in all the years I’ve been using BB.
For kicks, I took your FULL version and added back in the trans fill - dead air came back!! Took them out, the dead air was gone. So while my version seemed indelibly scarred by the fills, yours was not.
My BB pedal was preordered WAYYYYYYY back in the day - I had to wait for it several months - my SN is 0003798. So it’s old and quite worn. Many gigs, countless hours of rehearsal and recording. Maybe it’s just getting to the end of its life span? HOWEVER, no other songs exhibited this behavior. And I’m at a point now that I’m creating about half of the midi’s that I use when making songs so I can’t even blame it on my piss-poor midi skills.
My BB manager software version 18.104.22.168, which seems to be the latest one. I upgraded that probably a couple of years ago.
Anyway, this problem seems solved. I’ll have to see if there are any recurrences when I get around to making a new song. Maybe it’s just gremlins!
Thanks again for all your help!
