I thought it was 0-60. AFAIK, 0 = mute and 60 = max volume in the
QuickNotes external I use on the Mac. Sound volume levels have gotten a
little dicey under Panther.
Anyway, yes, the note parameters in a sequence have the volume, which
is effectively a QT MIDI note setting. I would think that _either_ the
volume of a clip or, for sure, a player volume, would be independent
from each other.
Haven't tried, though. For sure, it would be worthwhile to see if I can
fire the QuickNotes external from Rev.
It works from the data fork in a SuperCard project, but I don't know
how to deal with it in a Rev main stack. Any help appreciated.
