    Brainstorming: Your opinion about switching patches...

    Hi, i would like to know your opinion about ways to change patches.

    Imagine that you have a cello line, and you want to switch to pizzicato.

    What do you prefer? Key-switch, program change, controller change,...?

    Stupid and useless answers also count (like simply puting pizz symbol on the score editor)?

    I want this information for some utilities that i will do, to simplify the user life...

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Hi Nuno,

    The thing I hate about keyswitch changes is that most seqencers cancel them with their \"anti-stuck note\" features whenever you stop the transport. Or you can live with the stuck notes. Either way, not great.

    My personal preference is program changes, since that tends to keep the sequence itself cleaner and more readable, and of course, it makes each channel \"slot\" work harder. The downside, of course, is if you change the sounds or the GSP file, your instruments are no longer loaded in the same sequence, and it makes all the program changes wrong. This has gotten much better as the Nemesys team has come to grips with the issues.

    Great thought for a project, though. It\'s something that people struggle with.
