Glossary of Metronome Project Terms
The total of all voices with their voice patterns.
We could think of this as the top level and later we may save the Ensemble Rhythm Pattern project, with all the voices combined and all the on/off settings etc.,
When we hit the play,we will hear all the voices that are turned on.
𝅘𝅥𝄽𝅘𝅥𝄽 or 𝅘𝅥𝅘𝅥𝅘𝅥𝄽 or even 𝄽𝄽𝄽𝄽 but not 𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮𝅘𝅥𝅮 because that would be the voice pattern added with bar hits = 2 and all sounds turned off. Note the time signature is set at the higher level for the whole Ensemble Rhythm Pattern and all voices, so that it may be changed at any time by setting the overall Ensemble Rhythm Pattern setting bpb . If the on/off settings no longer match, they are ignored if they refer to beat 4 in a bar when there are now only 3 beats in the bar. important The switch should be TRUE = OFF rather than true = ON, so that when extra beats are added, the default is that they appear ON.
Note: users may set a voices to have multiple sound events per bar beat. For example if
This object property is dependant on the beats per bar and the bar hits for the voice and the on/off settings for each resulting sound event. It will consist of an array of beats, each defined as a series of on/off switches, similar to a binary string. 1 array element per beat , containing a binary string of on/off switches defining the bar hits. Eg bpb =3 and bar hits = 4 generates   
This array could then ignore excess characters when the bar hits is reduced. Eg: changing the bpb ( time signature ) from 4 to 3 could simply ignore every 4th character in each array element.
To produce triplets and other combined rhythms you have to use you musical and mathematical knowledge to apply the correct settings for bar hits and beats per bar. You could repeat a voice by selecting the same sound and set them to different bar hitss or you could set multiply up the bar hits to 12 for example so that it may then be divided into either 3 or 4 equal intervals
Refer to the sound event interval
If the time signature is 4/4 , the bar is divided into 4 beats. If the time signature is 3/4, the bar is divided into 3 beats. ( The beats are mere time divisions and bare no relation to any percussive hits )
A time division of the music containing a number of beats, where the first beat is usually emphasised by an accented note. (The metronome my strike a bell to mark the first beat of each bar.)The same meaning as the general musical term. So 4 BPB results in a bar where the metronome voicess mark the first beat of :
Simply the divisions within a bar according to the bpb Not a sound, as in beat the drum.
A single sound from the sound bank that has been selected to form the base of a voices.
The software setInterval milliseconds calculated to 'land on' every voice sound as follows:
We can turn off either a table row voice pattern or a single sound event within that voice pattern.
