"Copy/Paste" to add extra verse/ bridge

Post by jakeysnakey » Mon Feb 22, 2016 10:52 pm

Hi all.
Newbie here in New Zealand. Loving SynthFont and using it to provide backing tracks for my 3 piece band. I think I have the basics nailed but wanting to know if it's possible to "add" extra verses/bridges to songs easily by using existing parts of the original?
I had a read through the tutorial but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Thanks

One option you have is to use the "Copy/Paste" feature in the Pianoroll. Select and copy the notes you want to duplicate and the paste them at the desired position, using the inbuilt "Paste copied events" tool (not any "Ctrl+V" approach).

Thanks so much. It sounds straight forward so I'll have a crack at it tomorrow :D

and an "overwrite - mix" function would be good with the paste

All could be done. Sounds like a couple of relatively simple functions. I'll have a look when I get back to work.

There's an Undo button in the Pianoroll array of tools (under the selection of "Track to edit"), but It could of course be more accessible. Additionally, in some cases no undo data is created, just because of a flaw. One day I'll look more into this functionality!
