So did I understand it correctly that if you don't want all events from a track to follow the chord track, you'll have to copy those events to another track?
It's a nifty tool, but I don't understand why it's track based and not even based. It's unlikely you wouldn't want to chance one or two notes on a whole track right?

Hi guys. Some help would be appreciated regarding the chord track if possible please.

This is my exact process:-
1 Create a midi chord progression on an instrument channel, detect chords and extract to chord channel. Happy so far.
2. Create another instrument channel for a bass line. I add a basic bassline using midi, i then go into the inspector and follow chord track using the bass option. It changes some of the notes mostly to root notes. Im happy with most of the notes its changed but a few i want to change further so i do. Im happy with that.
The chord progression and bass line is say for example an 8 bar loop.
3. I now want to extend the regions so i click the existing bass line region and hit D to duplicate. It duplicates the track, but, the midi notes have reverted to where Studio One put them when i hit follow chords - bass originally, not where i then manually changed them slightly afterwards.

Is there a way, once you've manually moved some notes AFTER you've hit follow chords, for you to maybe reprint the entire MIDI event so it doesn't revert back to the original follow chords placement? I've tried right clicking on the event region and rendering instrument part, that doesn't do anything. Bouncing just turns it to audio.

If i create the pattern how i want it and then turn off follow chords it just changes everything back to how it was to start with.

Im pulling my hair out with this.

I am not familiar with using the chord track, but maybe you need to save your changes and then try to duplicate the part/event?

Just a thought....
