Thanks Kieth. These are from the softwhere instrument so I would assume they are midi loops.
I didn't understand what you ment by note volume, but what I did find is that changing the note volocity (down) also determined the string noises that are appearently part of the guitar sound software instruments.
I did this by opening the editor window, selecting the notes on the grid, then turning down the "note velocity" in the slide bar (lower left) down until the noises dissapeared.
Is this what you meant by turning down the note volume or is there another way to do that?
