Melodies

Plays melodies created by the user in the GUI (see PC Software page). While comminicating with the GUI the unit acts as a simulator, to help the user create. The melodies are organised in one array of 224 notes/silences. Each of these has a settable duration. The starts and stops for each melody are positioned within the array, allowing the user to work on small sections rather than a full sequence There are several videos on YouTube for this
