'making out feet' notation

I am trying out the 'making out feet' notation I have all installs up to date as of today, Tidal Pattern Library 0.7.1, the SuperDirt running in SC 3.8 on MacOS

this: d1 $ sound "bd bd . sd sd sd . bd sd"

sounds different to this: d1 $ sound "[bd bd] [sd sd sd] [bd sd]"

because in my system the full stop is interpreted as a sound it doesn't find so leaves the equivalent gap there...

what should I check for?

Hey Julio,

They should indeed sound the same.. Tidal 0.7.1 is quite old, 0.9.4 is the current one, it's probably that. Try cabal update; cabal install tidal again

Alex, it had been telling me it was up to date so I didn't realise there was a new version. It works now, thank you! Just revisiting all your documentation gradually! best! Julio
