Tinkering around with the global chord track for the first time and I can't make sense of its behavior. At all. Looking for confirmation of the following behaviors or some just plain consolation (or both!
1. The global chord track and transposition tracks are intrinsically linked, so there's no possible way to get Logic to analyze the chord content without also creating a transposition track. What the... ?? And you can't manually delete the data in the transposition track without deleting the chords, and vice-versa. Questions
: what's the sense of chord analysis resulting in a transposition track? What's being transposed? The sound of the music doesn't change when this occurs (I'm not using apple loops), yet there's all kinds of data in the transposition track...
2. If you decide to delete those chords and/or transposition track's data, ALL note events in ALL MIDI tracks are transposed by the amounts originally shown in the the transposition track. This has the potential to completely
re-write your music. O...M...G...
Now, this won't happen if you've enabled the "no transpose" function on all instruments before you delete the chords from the global track, but it might be the only solution if you're too far into your editing to use UNDO to remove the data. Or you could just leave that data there I guess...
3. In the score editor there's a function called "Insert Chords from Global Track". In one example, I have a single note E which gets analyzed as "E no3". Regardless of how I edit that chord name (by 2-clicking on the chord name and editing the parameters), it displays as "E no3". This is also regardless of whether or not "Change Display Only" is checked.
4. To edit a chord name in the score editor, it's necessary to 2-click on the lower LH corner of the root. Double-clicking anywhere else results in what you see in the screencap below
Is the design of this chord track thing just beyond my level of comprehension, or is it just fubarred? Or... could this whacky behavior be a PPC thing?
