MDL - (Musescore Drumline) Tremolo for 1/8 and dotted 1/8 notes comes out as buzz instead of 2 diddles on playback.

• Aug 13, 2018 - 06:55

So far the new Drumline extension looks promising thanks for doing this. And apologies if this is posted elsewhere. A cursory search found nothing.

I noticed that when I try to add a 2 slash tremolo to an 1/8th note, it comes out sounding like a buzz instead of 32nd notes. This happens with both 8th and dotted 8th notes.

Attached are 2 scores, one with new MDL, one with old custom drumline sound fonts. Beast 1&2 should sound the same as beats 3&4 on both.


Nothing? Can I at least get confirmation from anyone in the drumline community that this isn't just me or that I'm doing something wrong?

Be patient. It's August and Europeans like to take holidays in August. I haven't seen Daniel, who made the MDL, in a while so I suspect he will comment when he gets back. I know it's unusual for this forum to not give answer within an hour. I don't use MDL so I have no other comment on it. One thing that will help when someone does answer is if you post a sample with the wrong playback.

Sorry for reopening an old thread, but I haven't found where this particular question/issue has been resolved on the forum. Has anyone found a way to make the two-slash tremolo on an 1/8th note sound as it should for a snare drum roll during playback (other than switching to two 1/16th notes with one-slash tremolos)? I'm trying to avoid switching to 1/16th notes because it flows better visually and preserves the original style of the arrangement that I am working on. Ratamaq's examples are spot on as to what I'm seeing as well. It'd be nice if there was something that could be adjusted with the playback to fix it without actually re-writing the notes, but I'm just not that familiar enough.
