Inserted c15 just before the last note (Bb at 127) of a high trumpet phrase for the kiss effect. Works great, but now the effect occurs on preceding notes as well. I checked the event list, and there are no other controller messages on the track. Any idea what is causing this?
As a general rule: Always place a default piece of data at the beginning of a track for any controllers used. This will usually be "0" so that the controller is reset to "off" when the piece is played from the beginning. In the case of cc15 - it is a switch. The player only knows the last received data value. If you set the switch to "kiss" it will remain there until it receives another command. Placing a reset command at the beginning of the track ensures that the "kiss" will only occur in the specific location intended.
