[Suggestion] Strumming Speed

Postby rosesbyrosex » Thu Nov 16, 2017 5:33 am

Since i bougth Heavier7Strings i have been using the struming time sync mode, wich is one of the best features, and noticed that the slider has a wide range (80% of the slider) of 1/2 time, and extra range for a 1/2t time. And then 1/4, 1/4t, 1/8, 1/8t...

Image

The question:

Anyone can notice that any position that shows 1/2t it's close to the real 1/2. But what position is the true 1/2 Strum time?

And my suggestion is:
Show when the time is exaclty 1/2,1/4,1/8... and a button to set the time to the exact fractions like in guitar pro 7 (described bellow)
The struming feature in guitar pro 7 has buttons (red circled) to set the exact position for 1/8, 1/16, 1/32. So when the 1/8 button is clicked, the position sets exaclty to 1/8. (Like in the image below).

1/2, 1/4..are quantized, it’s the same value within the range.

What mean that every fraction is twice? a fraction with "t" and another without it, we have in the program 1/2 & 1/2t, 1/4 & 1/4t, 1/8 & 1/8t...it's confusing.

Please let me describe more details:

In current design, when you set strumming to "sync" mode, the numeric range of the slide bar is not changed, and current speed value is calculated to nearest beat number and truncated to it. This make beat range in exponential scale and make the leftmost beat number has too small range.

This seems not so good, and we will make each beat number to have same width in next update. Thanks for your suggestion!
