The ability to change volume of a chord symbol inside a song is needed
Hi. I have discovered the great value of using chord symbols inside my songs to play accompaniment to a song I'm writing. Thanks for making it available. Of particular value is the ability to change the instrument of a chord symbol. For example, using a chord symbol attached to a piano track but then editing the chord symbol to play violin background, is a great feature. I don't have to create and write a separate violin accompaniment track.
Volume control of the instrument played by a chord symbol is done at the beginning of the song, by lowering or raising the volume control slider for the "Harmony" slider in the mixer. That is very nice, but ... When playing a song, I have found significant need for the chords played by the symbol to change volume during the song, just as one would encounter when listening to any harmonious song. The background instruments in practically all songs change volume all the time to create crescendo or decrescendo. It would be great to be able to click on a chord symbol inside measure 42 for example, and lower or raise its volume alone, creating a crescendo or decrescendo for that chord.
Unfortunately, chord symbols now do not have the ability to edit the volume of individual chords. All I can do is raise or lower the overall volume slider in the mixer, but it changes ALL the chords, not just ones I've selected in a given measure.
Would it be possible to add a "velocity" field line to the chord symbol Inspector, so I can edit the velocity of individual chords within a measure(s)?
Thanks in advance
