I have GS 3.12, and was wondering what my polyphony settings should be. Up until a few mins ago, it was set to 256 max poly, and "alter transition voices to steal notes for block chords" (whatever that means) was set to 6.
I had a pretty intense piece in Sonar going.. very rapid full string section staccatos, etc.. and a snare drum kept dropping notes here and there.. couldn't figure out why. My peak polyphony for this piece was about 122. I raised the "alter transition voices" to 10. That seemed to do the trick.
Should I raise it higher? 14? 20? What does this setting do?
I hope someone who knows replies to this.
No one ever has.
I've seen it guessed that the setting determines which voice in a block chord will drop out first when polyphony capablities are exceeded. I have my doubts about that, as it opens up about 50 other technical cans of worms.
Has anyone ever asked tascam? I'm pretty sure it's not explained( well at least) in the manual.
