Ok thank you! Will take into account. Personally the follow Chord track is a bit confusing. Why am I presented with two options? 1. To synchronize first with Chord track and 2. Follow directly. I never got the difference between the two. Personally this tool is more like a filter to me (like in photoshop) when you dont want it, you remove it, and when your happy make the changes final.
Yeah, if you think of it like a Photoshop filter it doesn't work like you'd imagine.
According to the manual (pg 828) Follow Directly is for use when all (or some) of the notes already match the chords. Where Analyze Chords is for when the notes and chords don't have a prior relationship. In practice they both move wrong notes so they are in the chords, although they seem to generate different voicings (sometimes, depending on ???). I just rather arbitrarily picked one to use (Analyze), since the resulting voicings are not predictable as far as I can tell, and I'm gonna change the voicings to what I want anyway. To me it is just a quick way to get to a starting point. I'll use one chord to block out the rhythm and repeat that over the entire part. Then make the part conform to the chord track. After that I can fine tune it in the Key Editor, changing voicings and inserting any non-chord tones I might want etc.
