  1. Hello I was asked to add this to the EOF fourm section so that EOF devs can have a read and see if this can be added into the software or atleast explain it for anyone else to do this double stop bedn with different values. I wanted to add a double stop bend to my CDLC Rock n Roll Star by Oasis this bend is in the chorus of the song and requires the strings to bend at different values as show. http://i67.tinypic.com/25klyef.jpg To get the desired effect i tried many things but could get the result I wanted so I turned to CF's discord for help, lucky two clever users I)ark_Seph and Firekorn where there to help me out. So in EOF you need to find the bend you want to do this on you need to highlight the bend and go to Edit Guitar Pro Note (n key), here you split all the notes that are highlighted. http://i64.tinypic.com/2mmaezq.jpg Next you need to save the song and find the tracks .xml file then open it in notepad or notepad++ to make it easier. Using the timing form EOF locate the bend code in the file. http://i64.tinypic.com/2073p6g.jpg Then edit the desired string e.g string 3 to a full bend instead of a half bend do it to all the code that needs it to be done and save the file. http://i63.tinypic.com/2wqqx79.jpg Then you can compile the song in RStoolkit and test it out on RS. Sadly if you need to edit any of your chart in EOF you will have to do all above again as EOF overwrites the changes. Here is the result http://i65.tinypic.com/nwk2g0.png Hope this helps users and hopefully the devs can add into EOF with a future patch. Thanks for reading :)
  2. Hey everyone, I'm working on a custom in which I'm stuck tabbing the solo by ear, and it consists of a few bend-and-release notes (similar to that in the main riff in 'Back in Black'), and I was wondering if someone might be able to describe how I might do that with EoF? As an example from the solo, I need to do a whole-step bend on the 14th fret of the G-string, and bend back down. My initial thought is to use tech notes, and place one with a whole-step bend in the center, and another with a 0-step at the end, but I'm not sure how that would turn out in-game, nor do I know how to compile the CDLC to test it (I'm creating as I'm learning) Any help regarding the compiling or the bends would be limitlessly appreciated!
  3. So in this song I'm doing "Stay Away" if you can see by the picture when I make it on the green string or any other string it let's me do the slide from 4 to 5 just fine, but in the orange it has these symbols under it that signifies the bend when I actually play it in game and even though I remove bends and clear everything from the note it still shows up when I scroll up to further lengthen the note to show the slide. This has never happened and I'm just curious as to why and if you know a way around it. http://tinypic.com/r/20ij8mh/8
  4. Hi everyone here I present some little lead exercises for guitar. The music and tabs are taken from the Jammmz site. This site provides some really nice exercises with mp3 as normal tracks and without the specific instrument as playback. In this little workshop I make cdlcs with some of them. The tracks are very short and focused on particular techniques. I'll offer them as 2 piece packs with the example track with all instruments and a playback track without guitar. enjoy and raise your skills!
  5. Hello. 1 . I did import package CDLC in Rocksmith toolkit. 2. Import from songsarr*_lead.xml to EoF 3. Save and generate new CDLC with new chart from EoF. 3. Finnaly losses bends in game.

It is bug or what is? How right it import?

Answer 1: Tech (short for “technique”) notes are a new functionality of EoF since Hotfix 1281 (released on 02Feb2014). Tech notes are notes that can be overlaid upon regular notes on any given string and when a technique is defined on the tech note it ADDS that technique or status to whatever technique or status is applied to the regular note. Slide and bend techniques are an exception: the slide and bend techniques defined on tech notes override those defined on any regular notes the tech notes affect. The main thrust behind the introduction of tech notes is to allow the authoring of complex, custom bends. Tech notes with bend status have special treatment in that instead of just adding their status to notes they overlap, their positions are exported as bendValue tags, allowing you to define at what time a note bends (has a non-zero bend strength) and releases (has a bend strength of zero). Bend notes can have as many bend definitions as you can cram onto them. When one places a tech note on top of a regular note in the track, it will alter the technique exported to XML for that note specifically. Note: Regular bends in Rocksmith 2012 and in Rocksmith 2014 –vs– Rocksmith 2014 tech note bends By default, in Rocksmith 2014 exclusively, when a note is defined with a bend technique, EOF will export a bendValue defining the bend to take effect one third of the way through the note's sustain. In Rocksmith 2012, the player merely has to achieve the correct bend strength by the time the end of the note is reached. In Rocksmith 2014, for example, if a note is defined as a bend with a strength of 2 half steps, but you place a tech note anywhere on top of that note’s sustain tail and define the tech note as bending 1 half step, the 2 half-step bend definition that would have been placed 1/3 into the note's sustain is ignored for that note and the 1 half step bend is exported to XML instead. The default regular note bend will still export for the Rocksmith 2012 format XML when you author custom bends with tech notes, so you can author the bend note to work in both games - it will just be more accurate in the Rocksmith 2014 output XML (and game) with tech notes. See Example 5 for an example containing both regular and tech bend notes. Question 2: Can you describe some of the new possibilities that tech notes provides us? Answer 2: Although a bunch of examples are peppered throughout this tutorial as well as detailed examples at the end of this tutorial, the following are interesting new possibilities. i) Chords can now have different techniques on each string. Figure 1: If, for example, you mark a regular chord as accented and then place a tech note on one string making it a harmonic, the entire chord will still export as accented, but only the one string with the tech note will also be a harmonic. See 2nd chord in the image below to see how this appears in-game. The 1st chord is meant to illustrate the difference between an accented and non-accented chord. ii) As an extension to the above point, Unison bends can now be authored. “Unison” refers to 2 notes of the same pitch being played simultaneously; a unison bend is achieved by playing 2 strings while bending one string to match the pitch of another. Figure 2: Unison bend – In-Game iii) Bends can now (partially) release (and bend again) Figure 3: Multiple custom bends on one note iv) Authoring pre-bends in EoF, whereby the string is bent and then the note picked, is now possible. See the Figure 3 screen shot; it happens to also be a pre-bend note. v) Regarding slides, if the regular chord has a slide definition already, the slide tech note will REPLACE the slide end position for specific string(s) in the chord. Figure 4: You can mark the chord shown below as sliding to fret 3 and put a tech note on the D string (blue string) that defines the slide ending on fret 4 instead of fret 3, which would result in a 2-2 sliding to 3-4. Question 3: How do we define how quickly a bend or a slide must be accomplished in-game? Answer 3: For bends: it is important to note that the game will always bend a note gradually from one bend strength to the next bend strength. This implies that in a bend with more than one bend strength, the only way to maintain constant bend strength is to author two successive tech notes with equal bend strength. The following image, courtesy of our friend Aquilae, demonstrates this concept. To make the bend from one bend strength to another occur more quickly, simply place the two tech notes closer to one another. Figure 5: Note bend shape examples. For slides: Note that with the exception of bends, tech notes always apply the technique to the beginning of whichever note on top of which they reside. So for Figure 4 above, it doesn’t matter where along the sustain of the blue string the tech note is placed, as it will always look the same in-game. To adjust how quickly or gradually the slide is to be played requires authoring multiple notes and using the linknext note status. See Example 13 to see how this is authored. Question 4: What must I do to add a tech note to an arrangement? Answer 4: - The first step is to enable Tech View as follows: "Track>Rocksmith>Enable tech view". You can use the shortcut F4 to toggle in and out of this view. You will need to toggle in and out of tech view since you must be out of tech view to add, remove or modify regular notes. Note that when in Tech View, the title bar of the EoF window will show “(Tech View)” in its text. - To place a tech note, in Tech View, right-click anywhere on the piano roll (as you would for a regular note) to ultimately add a technique to an existing regular note. The point here is to add a tech note such that it overlaps a regular note and adds a special technique to it. On regular sustain notes you can place a tech note anywhere on the sustain. --> Tech notes in and of themselves simply do not export as notes that appear in game; they serve only to apply a technique to a regular note. --> If you place a tech note anywhere other than overlapping a regular note, the tech note will be moot since it will try to apply a technique to a note that hasn’t been placed in regular view. --> When a tech note is placed, a red asterisk (*) will appear below both piano rolls to indicate the presence of a tech note. --> You can place multiple tech notes overlapping a single sustained regular note in order to define complex bends, pre-bends, bend and releases, etc. So there is no need for one regular note per tech note. In fact a bend and release technique requires a minimum of 2 tech notes on a single sustained regular note, one to indicate where the bend begins and one to indicate where the bend releases. --> Tech view is designed to show the regular note underneath the tech notes, however on perfectly overlapping notes, such as with pre-bends, the regular note’s fret number, in EoF, will be hidden under the tech note. To view the regular note under the tech note one can simply toggle out of Tech View with the F4 key or though it is not necessary one can add a second piano roll as follows: Song > Second Piano Roll > Display to toggle the desired view (ensure “synch with main piano roll” is check-marked if you want both piano rolls to move as synchronously). Tech view will only apply to the primary piano roll. --> 3D preview draws the regular notes when tech view is in effect. --> Tech Notes cannot define fret or finger definitions (as of Hotfix 1299) and tech notes cannot be given a sustain. Only techniques or note status (ex: linknext, stop, sustain) can be applied to a tech note whose job it will be to alter how the regular notes are treated in Rocksmith 2014. --> Note that, while in tech view, tech notes can be multiply selected with the SHIFT and CTRL keys and copy/pasted or moved as a selected bunch, just like regular notes. - Workflow for authoring complex bends: Create regular note. Press F4 to enter tech view. Right-click to add tech note that overlaps regular note. Go to "Note>Pro guitar>Toggle bend" or simply type CTRL+B to open a dialog box asking for how many half/quarter steps to make the bend. Repeat for every tech note placed on the regular note in question. Selecting multiple tech notes before pressing CTRL+B will apply the same bend technique to each note selected. - See the end of this tutorial for multiple authoring scenarios illustrated and procedure detailed. Question 5: What do tech notes look like and how can I distinguish them from regular notes? Answer 5:Tech notes overlaid onto the regular notes appear as tab notation in boxes within the piano roll. In the EOF screenshot below one can see all the possible color schemes for various tech notes. The screenshot below was the EoF authoring that produced the in-game screen shot in Figure 3 above. Figure 6: Example of Tech View Figure 7: Corresponding Regular View Legend: --> A white box with only a black background with no text inside is how the tech note initially appears when right-clicking in Tech view to place a tech note. You then proceed to defining a technique the same way you would define a technique on a regular note, and then the box will have technique information inside. --> A blue box with white interior and blue text signifies that the tech note overlaps the regular note exactly. This is how one authors a pre-bend. The text inside the box describes the technique applied to the regular note. In this case it is a pre-bend with bend strength of one half step. --> A green box with black interior and green text indicates a tech note that overlaps a regular note on the regular note’s sustain tail. In the example above the pre-bend of strength “1” is bent further to a bend strength of “2” (i.e. two half steps = 1 full step; 1 half step is equivalent to playing the note 1 fret higher up) --> A bend strength of “0” is meant to tell to player to release the bend. --> A white box with black background and white text is meant to show that this tech note is currently selected in EoF. --> When a tech note does not overlap (does not affect) a regular note, it is rendered as a red box with black background and red text. This indicates that this tech note is moot and should either be deleted or repositioned such that it overlaps a regular note. Recall, every difficulty level in a track containing regular notes, be they text or numerical difficulty levels names, appear in EoF with an asterisk preceding their names (Example: *Amazing or *4). In an imminent upcoming Hotfix (after 1306), any difficulty containing tech notes inside, even if this said difficulty contains no regular notes, will see the difficulty tab contain the “(*)” suffix. Example: a difficulty level containing regular and tech notes will appear as follows: “*Supereasy(*)”. If it contains no regular notes it will appear as “ Supereasy(*)”. Question 6: When do I use the regular view to author bends and when do I use tech notes to author bends? Answer 6: The regular view bend is generically modeled as follows: bend increases in the note, are placed 1/3 into the note's sustain. Whenever this is not suitable, use tech notes. Question 7: If a bend tech note is added to a regular note, must that regular note also indicate a bend? Answer 7: No. Only the bend status of the tech notes are exported to XML. Question 8: Do I have to use Linknext note status for bend tech notes to work? Answer 8: No longer since a bend tech note overlapping a regular note’s sustain tail will not display a note head in-game. Question 9: What new types of slides can I now author using tech notes? Answer 9: Chord slides where one or more strings slide by a different amount of frets relative to the other strings involved in the slide. See Figure 4 for an in-game screenshot and Examples 12 and 13 at the end of this tutorial for authoring examples of this. Question 10: What new types of techniques can I author using tech notes that I couldn’t previously? Answer 10: Above and beyond those described in question 2 we ask that you post your unique, exotic (though useful and humanly playable) feats in this thread. Please provide in-EoF and in-game screenshots and the corresponding notes in Guitar Pro format. Question 11: What are the current limitations of tech notes? Answer 11: - If you place tech notes on top of a regular note and then move that regular note, the tech notes will not move with it. Copying a regular note using CTRL+C and pasting it elsewhere using CTRL+V will not copy over the accompanying tech notes either. raynebc will eventually address this. That said, as of Hotfix 1296 auto-adjust, the mechanism where notes are moved when you click and drag beat markers, does move tech notes as well as regular notes. - As of Hotfix 1300 Complex bends can now import, with the help of tech notes, from Guitar Pro into EoF. --> Currently the bend tech notes import into EoF but may require repositioning along the EoF note sustain tail it lies upon. This will happen when the sustain tail is generated by a tie note in the tab and EoF will scale and place all tech notes on the first of the two tied notes from the tab. raynebc will address this limitation in a future hotfix. --> Currently EoF doesn’t import Guitar Pro bend points that are identical to the previous one. raynebc will address this limitation in a future hotfix. See the images in the figure below to understand the distinction. Figure 8: EoF import of Guitar Pro sustained versus un-sustained bend strength raynebc is looking into the possibility of coding EoF to import techniques applied to a select subset of strings in a chord from Guitar Pro with the use of tech notes as necessary. The following are two examples authorable in Guitar Pro that would become future potential import candidates. Figure 9: Two examples of techniques expected to become importable into EoF with tech notes from GP. - Just like regular notes, when designing a chord in EoF, tech notes placed perfectly aligned-in-time are forcibly attributed identical tech notes. It is not a limitation of tech notes since it is intentionally designed that tech notes can be “tech chords”, because that is how EoF is designed to work. As with regular notes the work-around is slightly mis-aligning the simultaneous tech notes in time. - As of Hotfix 1300, Linknext tech notes can be used. Linknext tech notes cause a chord that follows to be exported as single notes, just as when regular notes have linknext status applied. Note also that as of Hotfix 1304, linknext note status, be it on regular or tech notes, will also cause the chordnote's sustain to export in the EoF-generated XML file, whereas before it only exported the sustain when the chordnote also had bend or slide status. Before this Hotfix 1304 the export sustain remedy was to apply a “sustain” status to the regular note or tech note in question. --> The limitation is that currently the use of Linknext tech notes is exhibiting strange behaviour in that it is not always removing the note heads from SOME of those following individual chordnotes that are now exported to XML as single notes. Ticket number #153 on github.com, the Toolkit developer website, has been opened to address this to assess whether EoF or Toolkit needs to be adjusted. When and if it works, a new example depicting this will appear in the examples section of this tutorial. Here is how this currently looks in EoF and in-game, albeit with Hammer-On and Pull-Off tech notes added too, which demonstrates a promising new technique proposed by our friend mrmaton. Figure 10: Attempting double stop with HOPO with the use of Linkenext and HOPO tech notes The following figure shows how raynebc figured out how to make it look in game, which currently is only achievable with tweaking the XML manually and which, more intuitively for the player, doesn’t break the sustain (orange sustain in this example) as in the above figure where the HOPO’s occur. Figure 11: In-game footage of manually tweaked that XML which a future EoF hotfix maybe will be capable of authoring. - As of Hotfix 1300, a new note status called “Stop” was added to the Edit Pro Guitar Note dialog box accessible either via the “N” button or clicking the mouse-wheel (if your mouse supports this). “Stop” status can be applied to tech notes. A stop tech note defines the end position of the affected string of the note it overlaps, allowing you to author chords with its individual notes ringing for different durations. If the stop tech note is at the start position of the note it affects, that note is exported with no sustain. --> The limitation is that there seems to be a Custom Song Creator Toolkit bug or Rocksmith game limitation currently preventing this from working as intended. Ticket number #153 on github.com, the Toolkit developer website, has been opened to address this. When and if it works, a new example depicting this will appear in the examples section of this tutorial. Here is how this looks in EoF. Figure 12: Authoring chords in EoF with different strings having different sustain durations via the “Stop” Tech note. Question 12: Any special advice or remarks regarding tech notes? Answer 12: - Of course there is the author-friendly short key, F4, to toggle in and out of Tech View. - A new menu option, “Note>Rocksmith>Move to prev note”, has been added which is a convenient way of taking a placed tech note and snapping it backward in time to overlap the previous note head exactly, even when the tech note doesn't overlap that previous normal note. - Note that with the exception of the bends technique and “stop” status, tech notes always apply the technique to the beginning of whichever note on top of which they reside. "Stop" isn't actually a Rocksmith technique. It is just a mechanism in EOF to allow notes in a chord to have unique durations. Stop tech notes apply that status anywhere on the note as is the case with bend tech notes. - As of Hotfix 1300, EoF can perform Guitar Pro tab import to create tech notes for any complex bends defined in the imported track. --> The following example demonstrates the proper import of a complex bend using “Guitar Pro import” feature of EoF. Figure 13: Importing complex bends into EoF from Guitar Pro tab. * Disclaimer: Current import limitation requires repositioning of tech notes as in the Step 4 of this figure. See Question 11 for details. - For those creating Dynamic Difficulty manually (as opposed to using DDC), as of Hotfix 1296, regular notes and tech notes alike, in a given difficulty of a track, can be copied and pasted simultaneously and identically into a new difficulty level. The EoF functionalities "Insert new difficulty", "Paste from", "Erase track", "Erase track difficulty" and "Manage RS phrases" functions now handle tech notes so there is no more need to copy regular and tech notes separately from one difficulty to another. --> Note: “Manage RS phrase" adds or removes a difficulty level for individual phrases in the project, for manually creating dynamic difficulties. While in a difficulty level containing regular and tech notes and adding a difficulty level with “Manage RS phrase”, all regular and tech notes alike will be copied over to the newly added difficulty level. --> Note: As stated in the Question 11, copying a regular note using CTRL+C and pasting it elsewhere using CTRL+V will not copy over the accompanying tech notes. - As is the case with regular notes, you can select one tech note and hold SHIFT while clicking another tech note in order to select all tech notes between the first and second clicked notes. All selection functions (select all, select previous, select rest, etc.) should work with tech notes as they do with regular notes, so you could copy and paste all tech notes into another difficulty or even into another track. Note that if you select a sequence of tech notes, copy them, and paste the tech notes from the clipboard they will all copy with identical positioning as the original copied sequence. - Note that as of Hotfix 1296moving beat markers in regular view will move regular notes and tech notes and moving beat markers in Tech View will similarly move tech notes and regular notes. Regular notes and tech notes remain completely separate from one another, but with this new feature it is no longer necessary to wait till after the tempo map is locked to be applying tech notes. It is in fact encouraged to author regular and tech notes alike concurrently so as to author a track of a CDLC in one pass, thereby avoiding forgetting where tech notes should belong. - In Tech View, if you use the resnap feature (Note > resnap or CTRL+SHIFT+R) when notes fall out of alignment with the grid snap setting, the tech notes will snap to the currently selected grid snap setting. Since placing bend tech notes often occurs at the end of a sustained regular note stuck to the next note, thus requiring the placement of a tech note bend to be placed 1ms or more before the end of the visible sustain note tail, it would be prudent to not resnap those bend release tech notes. See Figures 8 and 9 for examples of this. Figure 14: Purposely un-aligning bend tech notes example at the end of sustains Figure 15: In this example add all the tech notes with grid snap on without worrying about position. Then the last tech notes to be positioned are those requiring grid snap off. Question 13: Are there any pitfalls I must be careful to avoid? Answer 13: - Not really, apart from ensuring that the regular notes are not repositioned, since the Tech notes do not follow, yet(with the exception of auto-adjust, that does move regular and text notes alike when moving beat markers). - Note that if a regular note has fret value equal to zero and a tech note with a bend is applied to this regular note, EoF will not know to warn the author that this is not possible. In-game, regardless the bend tech note applied to the open string note, it will appear simply as an open string. - Please report any difficulties experienced with tech notes either in this thread or in the EoF Hotfix thread. Question 14: Do tech notes export to Rocksmith 2012 as well? Answer 14: A tech note exporting to Rocksmith 2014 will be ignored if exporting to Rocksmith 2012 and instead whatever regular note technique was added in regular view will be exported to Rocksmith 2012. Question 15: Does the Dynamic Difficulty Creator (DDC) work with tech notes? Answer 15: Yes. In terms of EoF-outputted XML for an arrangement with tech notes: - Complex Bends: the only difference with regular bends and tech note bends are <bendValue time> tags and if more than one bend tech note is placed on a note’s sustain, then tech notes just add more <bendValue> tags, but nothing else is changed in the EoF-outputted XML. - Chord techniques: The only difference between a regular chord and, for example, a chord with 1 string sliding to a different end fret, or one string with its note made harmonic is a different note attribute such as <slideTo="4"> instead of <slideTo="3"> or < harmonic="1"> instead of < harmonic="0"> for the string with the tech note. Nothing else is changed in the EoF-outputted XML. Therefore, in terms of the impact of DDC on tech notes: DDC has no problem processing techniques defined by tech notes. See Figures 10 to 13 to see the effect of applying DDC to arrangements containing tech notes. Figure 16: DDC has no adverse impact on a long bend note from the difficulty level in which it first appears to all the higher levels Figure 17: DDC simply removes regular notes on lower difficulties as one would expect, so those regular notes with tech note techniques on them will simply increasingly not appear on successively lower difficulties. Figure 18: DDC simply removes some regular chord notes on lower difficulties as one would expect. So on increased difficulty levels where a new string is added to a chord, if that string is authored with a tech note, then that tech note technique will be applied. This screen shot demonstrates this for a chord with a harmonic tech note followed by a chord with a string with alternate slide tech note Question 16: What exactly does the in-game notation for bends mean? Answer 16: In-EOF: The number in the tech note, as for regular notes, represents half-steps. 0.5 = ¼ step, 1 = ½ step, 1.5 = ¾ step, 2 = 1 full step, etc. In-XML: The XML code generated by EoF, for the bend in Figure 3 above, has the following form: <note time="29.000" … bend="3" …> <bendValues count="7"> <bendValue time="11.500" step="1.000"/> <bendValue time="12.000" step="2.000"/> <bendValue time="12.500" step="0.000"/> <bendValue time="13.000" step="3.000"/> <bendValue time="13.500" step="1.000"/> <bendValue time="14.000" step="2.000"/> <bendValue time="14.250" step="0.000"/> </bendValues></note>Note: the word ‘chordNote’ replaces the word ‘note’ for chords in the XML tags. Remarks: - The value for the <bend> tag is authored by EoF as the highest of all the bend steps along a given note and the number of solid arrow head marks on top of the note head in-game corresponds to this number. --> Note for Hotfix 1291 and earlier, EoF defined the <bend> tag with the value of the first non-zero “step” value in the corresponding <bendValues step> tag, thereby showing the note head with an amount of solid arrow heads equal to that first-non-zero bend step value even if further along in the note a higher bend step (bend strength) is authored. - The minimum value for a bend is always 1, so if we have step="0.500" or "1.000" the bend tag is set to “1” - The <step> value is always rounded up to the nearest whole number in order to define a <bend> tag value that in turn dictates how many solid arrow heads display above a note head. In-Game: - ¼ step = 1 solid arrow head - ½ step = 1 solid arrow head (pitched up by 1 fret) - ¾ step = 2 solid arrow heads - 1 full step = 2 solid arrow heads (pitched up by 2 frets) - 1 ¼ steps = 3 solid arrow heads - 1 ½ steps = 3 solid arrow heads (pitched up by 3 frets) - 1 ¾ steps = 3 solid arrow heads! --> 3 arrow head maximum and the ghost string indicator described in the next question will not surpass 1 full step (i.e. deflect by no more than two strings in-game). Question 17: Since the number of solid arrowheads above the in-game note containing bends corresponds to the maximum bend strength applied to the note, it can be difficult to tell the bend strength of higher and lower strength bends in the same note, such as may be the case in Figure 3 above. Any tricks to interpret the relative waviness more accurately? Answer 17: Yes. In Rocksmith 2014, a ghost string will dynamically move up (or down depending on the string) to indicate how much to bend a string. As you are bending, the goal is to dynamically bend with a strength that aligns precisely with the bending ghost string. Note that the ghost string will bend as follows: - ¼ step: half the distance between the in-game strings - ½ step: one full distance between the in-game strings - ¾ step: the distance equivalent to 1.5 the distance between two adjacent in-game strings - 1 full step: two full in-game string distances apart - >1 full step: two full in-game string distances apart Note: The arrowhead outline indicates the instantaneous increasing or decreasing required bend strength. - Note that RS2014 will score the note as correct if the first bend is achieved even if subsequent bends are not achieved. However the game does provide dynamic feedback such that when the bend strength applied is not as per the way it was authored, the sustain will stop glowing until the bend strength is as required.

count="21">...<handShape chordId="11" endTime="96.479" startTime="94.500"/>...</handShapes>Note: Recall that authoring an arpeggio requires that the note at the beginning of the arpeggio becomes a chord (i.e. ghost notes are added). Had the regular note sustains extended till the beginning of the next regular note in the arpeggio, and had the bend release tech note been attempted at the end of such a sustain, the tech note would become red as in the following screenshot in Figure 14. Figure 20: Effect of EoF truncating sustains by 1ms Unless the first of two consecutive notes in Figure 14 has linknext status, EOF enforces a gap between notes (File>Preferences>Min. note distance). This is why the tech note aligned with the regular note head on the D string is red instead of green (it is placed 1ms after the end of the arpeggio's initial chord). EOF will not allow a chord to overlap any notes using any of the same strings, even if the conflicting string is ghosted. If you wished to extend the sustain and resulting end of sustain bend release as close to the next regular sustain note (D-string), extend the regular note sustain, visually-speaking, to meet the next note, turn off grid snap, and move the tech note on the A-string to within a few milliseconds before the next note and then the tech note technique will apply to the note on the A string as evidenced by a green box tech note. It would look as follows in EoF and in-game though the change in-game appears as subtle in this screenshot.
