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


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.


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


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.

240 minutes = 4 hours (for me) 60 minutes = 1 hour 30 minutes = 1/2 hour 63 squares = 1/2 hour (aka: final boss 60 seconds = 1 minute theme)

                    200 squares = 4 hours
