I am trying to edit one of the existing MIDI files, in this case, to “transpose” ride cymbals to open hats. I drag-n-drop the file into Reaper, make my changes, and export as a new filename. The resulting file leaves a one-beat gap (i.e., silent extra beat)between it ending and the BB file playing. It also leaves a beat gap when looping against itself.
It all looks proper in Reaper, and loops in Reaper just fine. If I open the file in Reaper and make NO changes but save it under a different name I also get weird timing problems.
So what am I doing wrong?
I gotta believe it’s some setting in the Reaper software, I don’t think it’s the BB or the Manger software.
The reason I’m using Reaper for MIDI edit is that, for wholesale transposition (like going from a ride to a hat) it has an excellent little command that allows you to select all notes of the same value, so you can transpose ALL of your ride cymbals to hi-hats. I am more than happy to use something else, if it has that feature, so if you think I’m just using the wrong software, please let me know what you’ve used successfully.
