Request for playback of tremolo bar

Tremolo bar setting has been fixed in ver 2.1 but yet the play back doesn't work.

GIT commit: 871c8ce


Status (old) needs info active

Tremolo is not the same thing as tremolo bar (of an electric guitar). The former do play back, the latter apparently not, unlike bends, although it is similar to a bend

Title Tremolo bar doesn't work Request for playback of tremolo bar

To be clear: tremolo bar *works* - the symbol appears in your score just as it was intended to. It is just that it currently doesn't also affect play back.

Would it be possible to finish the tremolo bar design and get the play back funtion? Now you can edit the curve as you like but it just appear as a unlcear symbol in the score. It seems that someone has been developing this but never got it completed. This would be a very good feature for guitarists and many others

Reported version 2.2  
Regression No
Workaround No

Any idea if/when this could be fixed? Playback of tremolo bar is still not working in the version 3.4.2. The graphics seem to work now but playback still missing...

I too would like to see this working in playback.
I'm no expert, but it seems to me it should not be difficult to adapt the module that effects playback of bends to do this. The only difference is that it needs to accommodate both positive and negative pitch excursions. However, I'm sure I don't know what I don't know. I look forward to a solution and appreciate all you do.

A tremolo bar is a device attached to some electric guitars, to bend all strings.
A tremolo is a musical ornament (and one you won't create with a tremolo bar, to add to the confusion, as that device really is creating a vibrato)
