Ardour Scroomer 4

Audun continues his excellent work on the scroomer and piano bar. Not much left for me to do, but here are 2 additional ideas that might fall into the too-much department πŸ˜‰



Indicating notes as they are played on the piano bar. The buttons are clickable and have a pressed look, but it’s better to have arriving notes be displayed differently. Velocity can be shown as bars taking a percentage of the keys. Perhaps even with colours like on gain meters.

Rows that contain notes could be marked on the scroomer to make it obvious where the range or ranges of interest are.

    first of all : *drool*
    second : where do the waveforms come from on the midi track?
    third : the C-markers are a great
    forth :it will be neat to use this stuff in ardour!

    I guess #2 can be answered by looking at

    Neat stuff !

    Dieter: thanks! The underlay and the C-marks are Audun’s work. Showing the scroomer handles in inverse was entirely his idea. While I proposed underlays, I didn’t think of audio on MIDI back then.
    This stuff (sans the 2 ideas) is already in trunk, in case you are curious enough to build it πŸ˜‰
