I wasn't sure whether to put this here, i saw people giving feedback on @yaxu's recent post about "Thoughts on the course" yesterday but i thought maybe i could just post here to separate it out a bit.
One thing I don't think has been covered much yet (beyond me digging in the documentation) are the different ways of inputting musical notation to be played by SuperDirt's synths (in fact i don't know if Superdirt's synths have been mentioned yet?).
As far as I can see there are "notes" generated by the different samples e.g "arpy, arpy:2, arpy:3" etc but this is just a sample which has been recorded (as a major scale i think?) and then sequenced in order.
I know Superdirt takes midi notation i.e c5, ef5, g5 (Cm triad), but i've also seen it used just with numbers, which I presume works like 0 = tonic 4 = dominant, 7 = octave?
Does 0 = C?
I haven't been able to find in the documentation anything which allows you generate say a minor scale on Superpiano? Is there a global parameter setting for a root note and a particular scale? Can this be set per line of code i.e "d1 £" playing a minor scale "d2 $" playing a pentatonic?
Apologies if this has been covered or is going to be covered and i'm jumping the gun, it just feels like this is a bit of a block for me at the moment in terms of actually being able to create more melodic music in Tidal.
