Keyboard

You can use the following keyboard shortcuts while composing a track.

spacebar

Press to start or stop playback.

commandcontrol key

Hold down the commandcontrol key while drawing notes to create "loud" notes.

optionalt key

Hold down the optionalt key while drawing notes to create "soft" notes.

shift

Hold down the shift key to select a region of notes. You will then be able to copy and paste or clear that region.

Advanced

Playback starting point

By default, playback always starts from the beginning of a track. This can be difficult if you want to focus your attention on a piece in the middle, or near the end.

You can change where playback begins by setting the playback start marker. You can do this by clicking white area just above the grid. A blue arrow icon will be placed where you click. Playback will now start from this point.

Clicking on the arrow icon again will remove it.

Column volume

There is a speaker icon to the left of each row on the grid.

Click this icon once and you can control the volume of that row.

Double click this icon and you can mute or unmute the row.

No, Robert is being forced to not tell but I just wanted to ask how can I change the BPM of a square or row if it's aloud.

Escusme Jhon but I have had a problem being harrased on chat by a profile name of Regan Ledbetter and I am very sick and tired of it.

Haha I don't think you realize how slow 1bpm is, but I guess that would be useful if you are posting a one-square, pre-recorded track that's super long and don't feel like clicking "longer" four million times. Btw it's nice to see someone bringing up the really old discussions again; I do that too when I'm bored...

its not hacking. you just right click on either button like OMG and then click on inspect element and just change the bpm from there.
