sound channel change problem

• May 6, 2018 - 12:54

Hi all,

I have been routinely using the Electric Bass instrument and hijacking the pop & slap channels for guitar effects (distortion, clean, jazz, etc.).

I have noticed a new problem:
In my example, the first chord plays fine; the second chord has the last un-tied note played in the 'default' channel sound (overdrive). Can anyone offer help? or is this a bug to report?

Fair warning:
If I cut/paste the whole note chords I can make it work fine for a bit, but the problem eventually reappears.

Since I'm not well versed in guitar sounds, but well versed in using the midi channels. Can you explain what I'm listening for, like the dummy I am?

I'll tell you want I hear. I hear two different chords. The difference in sound seems to be the notes. The first is a weird chord (for classical music) made up of a I, V, I IV, the second is a vanilla major chord.

It's not the notes; they are fine.
On the second chord, the last note ( the untied note) comes in with the distorted sound rather than the clean sound of every other note. They should all be on the clean (Hawaiian) patch.

(edit: and the first chord is just an inverted Csus2 (G bass))

And a side note:
Is your guitar set to "D string" which is an octave low? (Drop D?) *1
There is D3 instead of D4. (in String Data)

*1: If this is not the case, the problem may arise in TAB notation.

I noticed that, but I haven't investigated.
No, no odd string choices, apart from the fact that it started off with a changed Bass.
I don't know why this one is like that; I'll check my other pieces.
I am pretty much color-blind and I don't use the range reminders much.
