blog  An alternative to the 'play' macro: 'iplay' and 'with-instrument'.

Mar 2011

The other day I was thinking: when I use the play macro in Impromptu (video tutorial), in my head it's already obvious what's the virtual instrument I want to play. So why do I have to specify that all the time? Wouldn't it be more natural just being able to say, for example, get this instrument and now play this and that note with it...


blog  Impromptu: If-mod macro.

Oct 2009
