HOW TO USE

How melodies processed?

  • Melodic Texts to be processed only stores pitch information, not rhythm.
  • The app first looks for notes C, D, E, F, G, A, B. (must be Capital Letter)
    It checks whether there is # or b after each note.
    Then, it assign values for each note.
  • The app analyzes octave changes ( / and \ ) over the whole textbox and memorize the octave for each note. Even if you don’t play from the beginning, octave control should still work perfectly.
  • Other texts are ignored on playing.
    So you may add lyrics with non-capitalized texts, it won’t affect Playing
