Guitar having channels like the violin family?
When writing in a rock or metal style, it's common for guitars to change pedal configurations and tones midway through a piece. Most of the time inserting staff text with the pedal change is exactly what I'm looking for. I'm not advocating a full range of tones and pedals or whatever like a DAW, that's not really what notation software is meant for.
However, clean versus distorted guitars is a pretty big tonal change (and in a lot of the rock idiom is a playing style change as well), and I'm suggesting the electric guitar to have midi channels like the violins/trumpets currently do that allows for the sound to change via staff text. Maybe just a "clean", and "distorted" setting that can be toggled.
While certainly not necessary; after all I could A: use two guitar parts and just hide the one not in use in the main score, but doing the part score for that seems like it would have it's own set of problems or B: use my imagination for the sound change; it would make writing in the rock and metal idiom slightly easier and smoother, at least for me. What are some of everyone else's thoughts?
