I’ve introduced a new feature that will revolutionize “with bass” drum kits!
No longer will we use the primitive choke group for bass notes. They will now have “duration” so they can sound snappy by being able to sound on and sound off!
Any instrument can now be specified as “Non-Percussion”, which means that it will ring out until there is a note-off, or a zero velocity note-on, rather than being squelched by the cuttoff time (When parsing midi, note-offs will be quietly converted to zero velocity note-ons internally). This allows for polyphony! You can now do bass chords! (or whatever other instrument ahempianorhodesguitaretcahem*)
This will require both bbmanager upgrades and these changes copied into the firmware.
Once this is out and proliferated, we’re gonna have a problem organizing the deluge of songs! I have 200+! But it’s gonna be awesome.
