"Quick Licks" Notation Builder
Staff-Line Editing Mode
READ THE HELP FILE FIRST!!!
Click on the link to do "QuickLicks"
with No Staff Lines
with just a single Staff Line
Step 1a/3 - Click on a character or a mini-pattern to insert it into your main pattern
These patterns can be selected on their own for quick insert/overwrite into your pattern
Step 1b/3 - Edit your lick more here
Below is the main pattern edit window
Change the pattern width:
Move noteheads at current column:
Switch to No-Staff-Lines mode
the larger the width, the slower the editing takes
You can't save the above image (because it's not a single image, it's a bunch of little ones)
see below to save
Optional Step - Create Image to save/print
Right-click on the image below to save it
(this routine goes back to www.drumputer.com to get a program there to stitch the images together)
Step 2/3 - Generate Drumputer Script
How do you want to interpret staff lines for the Drumputer?
This assumes you're writing tenor or bass parts and top bass (voice A) is space 1 (not top space)
(This fits Drumputer defaults better)
This assumes top space (on top of staff) is voice A and B,C,D,E,F follow as you go down.
(better if you intend to change the default voicing in the script below)
'Creation time goes here - don't remove this top line 'SET DEFAULTS=MARCHPERC3.SF2,1 'uncomment the above line if you have the soundfont installed SET TIMESIG=4/4;SET RELEASEVOL=5;SET FLAMRELEASE=NO;SET PLAYRELEASE=YES,,,A SET REPEATS=3;SET TEMPO=100;SET TEMPOCHANGE=15;SET PLAYBEAT=NO TRACK 3 'assuming Bass line - if you go with TRACK 2 for tenors change PLAYRELEASE above '---- CONTENTS ABOVE THIS LINE WILL BE RETAINED (DO NOT REMOVE OR ALTER THIS LINE) 'design a pattern above and then push the "Create Drumputer Script" button above.
Notes accumulated while attempting to create a drumputer script will go here
Step 3/3 - Send to Drumputer to produce Sound AND Image
So you can hear it
(be patient, it can take a while)
Extra Step - Save/Load your work
You may need to switch between INSERT and OVERWRITE mode above for this to show up
(You can also use the above textbox to save your pattern and re-load it later by pasting the text back in and pushing the button)
