What to do?
A first I was going to write a new LatinWaltz groove. But, I'm feeling a bit lazy today and figured there should be an easier way. Yeah, right.
The LatinWaltz groove really doesn't work for 6/8. The timing is just wrong. Hmmm, off to work:
1. In the MMA file split each bar in two. Essentially, we now have a 3/4 file. A minor result of this is that I now have bars which look like:
1 AmI don't like un-numbered bars, but going with 1,2,3,etc. isn't right either. So, we'll leave the un-numbered alone.
The 3/4 groove works okay. But, it's not quite right. So, a bit of playing around.
2. To make the difference between the first and second bars in each pair I created a little sequence which sounds a triangle at the start of the odd numbered bars:
Begin Drum-Solo-TriangleCool, that was easy.
Sequence D1 z
3. Now, I found the bass beats at the start of each bar needed to lighten up on the even numbered bars. So, right before bar one I did:
Begin After Repeat=2 // for bars 3,5,7...and, right after bar one (right before the original 2nd half of the bar):
Bass Accent /// no accent
Begin After Repeat=2 // This is done on bars 2,4,6And ... that's it.
Bass Accent 1 -40
Walk Accent 1 -40
Only problem is that bar 1/2 still has the original accents. I could play around and fix that, but it's not worthwhile.
I did learn something: AFTER is really neat and powerful!
