Overview

Arrangements are playable sequences of different beats that can include repetitions and changes of the tempo. Since arrangements overwrite current metronome settings, the following areas are disabled while an arrangement is selected:

Create an Arrangement

You can create a new arrangement by pressing this button, which will open the following dialog:

Here you can set name and base tempo of the arrangement.

Share an Arrangement

If you have internet access, you can share your arrangements with other users and download their shared arrangements.

After an successful upload you will get a short key. Entering this key in the "load" dialog will download the arrangement and insert it into the list.

No personal or other information than the pure arrangement data will be uploaded.

Move an Arrangement

To change the position of an arrangement, tap its move button. Once selected for moving, you can change its position within the list with these buttons:

When you are finished, press its move button again or select another entry.

Delete an Arrangement

Press this button to delete an arrangement.

Edit an Arrangement

Press this button to edit an arrangement. After that you can change its name and base tempo with the button with its name on top:

An arrangement can contain 3 types of elements:

  1. Repeat Start
  2. Repeat End
  3. Beat

You can add new elements to the end of the list by using these buttons:

You can also create elements on other positions. Tap an existing element to create a new one above it.

Repeat Start / End

Anything between an RepeatStart- and RepeatEnd-Element will (surprisingly) be repeated. For the RepeatStart you can set the numbers of repetitions to a value between 1 and 128 or to infinity (∞). It is also possible to nest multiple repetitions.

Beat

You can create an new Beat Element with this button. You can set beat data identical to the Beat Area. Additionally you can set the following data:

Use the first wheel to set the number of bars this beat is played. Use the second wheel if the beat should get an other tempo than the arrangement. During the playback the beat can continuously speed up or down. Set the desired tempo difference in the third wheel. The end tempo will be reached with the end of the last bar.

These bpm values are stored relative to the arrangement tempo. For example your arrangement has 140bpm and your beat is set to the half, which means to 70bpm. Now if you play the arrangement with 200bpm, the beat will be played with 100bpm.

You can also import existing beats to your arrangement. The data of the source will be copied into a new beat.
