Keyswitches: Assign Keyswitch to Notes / Note Attributes

+29 votes
asked Jul 16 in Key Switches by Lukas Ruschitzka (132,840 points)
Currently keyswitches are separate from notes and can be inserted at a certain position.

For an alternative workflow we need a way to assign a keyswitch / articulation to particular notes. These articulations are then always triggered before that note. So these keyswitches would rather behave like attributes.

The advantage is that notes can be moved around and would always keep their keyswitch / articulation.

this is pretty much the only way articulation switching should work: articulations TIED to the notes instead of being a separate entity.

The way Logic does it is absolutely spot on and by far the best currently available.

Please if you focus on this and on the score editor, you can absolutely overcome all the competitors because you have in your hands all the ingredients to satisfy the target of orchestral composers.
