Loop points :
A song is generally made of an introduction , a body and an ending . The locators lets you set the start and end loop points ANYWHERE : Your intros and endings may last as long as you wish ...The loop maybe infinite : for people practicing soloing or scales.
Composer comes with more than 40 different styles from Jazz swing to Techno . Styles are easily created and edited using Quartz Audio Master : any sequence can be turned into a style . You can also look in the download section for styles dropped by internauts , or go to the uplink section to share yours.
Input songs :
The main difference with other arrangement software is the complete freedom in setting the start time and duration of any chord . Of course , to remain easy to use , a chord will default to a mesure start and last for the entire mesure. But you can split a mesure down to 32ndth notes ! giving you the ability to enter any song even the most complicated ones.
