for stepmania, if you make a custom song, the round ends after the last steps (like if you had a 4 minute song but only made steps for the first 2 minutes, the round would cut off after the last step and not keep playing).

if i import the song into ITG with r21, does it do the same thing? as in, will the round end after the last step?


hello community, by the way

*laugh* it's not supposed to be complicated. it's my "signature" lick, the one that i put somewhere into every marching percussion show i ever wrote when i was steeped in percussion arranging a few years back.

could try something like this one instead. :) still pretty basic, but it's the beginning blocks of more advanced tenor sweeping and even so is fun to watch a tenor line of 5 play dick-ass clean.

you a drummer/percussionist? musician of any sort?

I marched in my high school drumline for 4 years, 3 of which on tenor. Last summer i marched in DCI for the Raiders, and I've been teaching at a high school for two years. i have a website, www.freewebs.com/rudimentality, where a lot of my writing is showcased. I don't write tenors too much anymore, I've been all snare lately... i've seen your icon on itgfreak every now and then, but its usually the ninelet (or something) ascending note icon. I figured it was either a general appreciation for music, or you were a brass player...

woooow, my old stomping grounds.

i went to high school in pennsylvania, and i started teaching drumlines out of there. mostly in pennsylvania, but i worked for Washington Tonwship for a few years too, first as just an assistant and then as the percussion guy and then also as the music ensemble guy in the box. I still know quite a few people out there - marched with some people who used to be the caption head at bushwackers, taught the person who currently is the caption head at bushwackers, know some of the people at the reading buccaneers. (i don't know how much you know about DCA.)

I marched in the Crossmen in the mid nineties and then taught the Glassmen for a year as the bass drum tech and the Jersey Surf for a year as the tenor tech. they were good times and i miss them, and i'd probably find a way to get back involved if i moved back there. not a lot of drum corps out here in oregon, and the marching band scene i'm done with because after four years of the circuit politics i got too frustrated.

i'l check out your page when i get a chance. The only thing i really have up on the net at present is an old piece i wrote for balinese gamelan and tenors here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qk2XrMfocTQ

stay away from the snare writing man. everyone and their dog writes snare licks. i always liked to put my strongest players on tenors and #1 and #2 bass. but that's just the way i write my charts. if you're interested, i can dredge up some old charts i wrote. always into the exchange of marching percussion ideas.

good question. I've never had that happen. It may depend on the length of the music file. But ive had the opposite happen to me on SM, so no telling what. Id say just drop it in the ogg patch(b/c if the song length is 2+minutes it wont allow it) and convert the dwi to sm if needed and then see what happens from there.
