So earlier, I was working on my Thing with the new “play note” block, and I was already starting to miss coding music with the play sound block. Why? Because it was much simpler with the wait block instead of the rhythm. Do you think so too? If you do, I figured out a way to use the wait block, with the new “play sound” block!
First, like in @GweTV’s tutorial, we will use a variable to recognize when we need to play a note! But this won’t be for notes, but chords! (Three+ notes combined together)
Now, do the following for every chord you would need for your song!
(For example, mine is D, F, and E.)
Note, to have no rhythm (wait time 0) just simply press the delete button
Great! Now start coding your song, like you would with “play sound”!
Now, of course the “play sound” block has a wait in it, so In this case, just add a wait button yourself!
Here’s an example of my song.
Quick tip: If you want your music to sound good and not off, make sure the wait time is a dividable(?) of 1. What I mean is like, 0.5, 0.25, 0.125.
And there! Easy, right? That’s the whole point of this method of coding music.
- I’m so using this.
- I might use it, but I don’t code music much.
- Nope LOL
Let me know if I missed something, or made a mistake. Thanks!
