keep original semitone distances of imported melody

Hi,

I sometimes hesitate to import an exisiting melody (exported clip from Ableton) into synfire because I remember the resulting figure did often not sound like the original, and it was very tedious to find the little adjustments ("chromatic"+/-, "Bypass VL" , vertical, horizontal) to get the melody sound right again. Sometimes it was even impossible for me.

It would be very comfortable if there was an option in the import process "Keep original semitone distances" and synfire would do these adjustments automatically.

My intention is of course not to have static pitches, because I want to transpose, modify and vary the melody.
 

Maybe there is already some way ?

Hi,

I think there is no chance to get a original melody back in Synfire.
I tried this too and Synfire alters a original melody on essential notes , so the original intented mood (nuances) of the melody are not there anymore
Synfire his musical Artificial intellicence (AI) is responsible for this

You can keep the original melody by assigning it to the percussion symbol (static pitch)

Yes, you can do that, but then it is not part of Synfire musical AI ( no figures anymore )

Change the harmonic chord scale to fit the notes. Then change to vertical scale for the notes. That should be enough for the background. Then for solos, change the interpretation to solo or none.
