Highlighted Instrument for Custom Multi Instrument Voice

Edit the highlighted instrument in Multi Instruments Menu (Ctrl + 37)

Non Melod. Perc... (button) (Alt + N)

Custom Multi Instrument Voices Menu (Ctrl + 37)

This let's you make a new "custom instrument" consisting of any number of the available melodic or percussion instruments playing together

You can set them up so some of the instruments skip beats - in cycles - and so set up complex patterns if you wish - also they can play chords (for pitched instruments).

You can then select these multi instruments into any of the parts from Instruments (Ctrl + 8) or Non Melodic Percussion (Ctrl + 21)

Repeated every (editable) (Alt + Y)

Start note count anew at start of each seed (check box) (Alt + H)

Volume for instr. (editable) (Alt + M)

Volumes as (drop list)

How to show volumes - choose which range is most useful...

Choose how to show volumes throughout Bounce metronome.

The note volumes are actually sent to your soundcard or synth as Midi velocities. These have a range of 0 to 127 for the maximum velocity, which is the reason for including 0 to 127 as an option here.

Transp. by any interval (editable) (Alt + I)

Transpose by extra (editable) (Alt + O)

Transpose by extra (spin) (Alt + O)

Don't quantize pitches (radio button)

Set all the chords to play the exact desired intervals above the root...

The root of the chord is still quantised to the scale or arpeggio. The exact intervals to use are specified using the chord notations, e.g. Cj for the just intonation major chord, C for the 12-et one etc. See the help for the chord progression player.

Quantise to scale pitches (radio button)

All the chords to play the nearest available scale pitches to the desired notes

To arp. pitches (radio button)

All the chords to play the nearest available arpeggio pitches to the desired notes

Broken (check box)

Broken chords - so you get the original note, then the first note in the harmony, then the second and so on one after another...

After the notes sound they remain sustaining until you release the key.

Any inversion okay (check box)

Let the chords be inverted - you don't care which inversion is used...

It is done so that the inverted chords all use a similar range of pitches - chords that span less than an octave will be inverted if necessary until they only use notes in the first octave above the 1/1.

For the Chords for PC keyboard keys (Ctrl + 172) window - that's how it works if you have the option to transpose all the PC keyboard chords to notes played switched off. When the chords get transposed, they work similarly, but inverted if necessary so that they only use notes in the first octave above the note to be played.

Chord Progressions for Arpeggios (Ctrl + 151)

Add a chord progression so that the arpeggio changes as the tune plays

Skip any notes quieter than (check box) (Alt + K)
