http://bouncemetronome.com Same rhythm in all sixteen parts,with the tempo slightly changed. The other parts are faster than the first part by 101%. 102%, 103%, ,,, 115%. The first eight parts play the first eight harmonics. The second eight parts then play them again, transposed down an octave.

This is a new feature of Bounce Metronome 4.3 http://www.bouncemetronome.com/blog/2...

To make this example go to the Drum & Dance in the main window drop list, and then you can enter this into the rhythm editor (will turn into the correct notes when you paste it into the editor).

Rhythm Phasing Example with harmonic series pitches, in sixteen parts !
Part 1 ± Ä ± Ä
Part 2 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 101%
Part 3 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 102%
Part 4 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 103%
Part 5 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 104%
Part 6 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 105%
Part 7 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 106%
Part 8 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 107%
Part 9 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 108%
Part 10 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 109%
Part 11 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 110%
Part 12 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 111%
Part 13 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 112%
Part 14 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 113%
Part 15 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 114%
Part 16 ± Ä ± Ä VaryTempoBy 115%

As the example shows, you can vary the tempo for any of the parts in your rhythm like this, using VaryTempoBy 101% or e.g. VaryTempoBy 4/3 which makes that part 101% faster, or 4/3 times faster than the other parts.

You can vary the note size similarly VaryNotesBy 101% or VaryNotesBy 4/3.etc.


Then to get the harmonic series go to the Instr menu and switch on pitched instruments. Then go to the Parts window and select Interval from the drop down at the bottom, then set the interval for each part to 1/1, 2/1, 3/1, 4/1, 5/1, 6/1, 7/1, 8/1, 1/2, 1/1, 3/2, 2/1, 5/2, 3/1, 7/1, 4/1 respectively.

Then choose any melodic instrument(s) to play the notes.

For this particular example I set the first eight parts to plucked sin(n^x), and the remaining parts to Bright varying pluck - the reason is because that uses Bounce Metronomes internal wave player synth which is able to play pitches to high precision.

If you use your own favourite synth via midi then be sure to run the Out Device Capabilities Wizard in the Play drop menu to make sure your synth can handle pitch bends - the standard MIcrosoft SW Wavetable Synth, is okay but some synths can't handle them.
