easy to work with
For bigger bands
❖ Switches songs and instruments across all bards in the same party, by commands. Those bards don't have to be on the same PC, which means it's possible to play with your friends, and everyone starts to play automatically by following the ensemble mode, no need to countdown on Discord anymore!❖ Plays any number of tracks on the MIDI file, transposes any track separately, or overrides the electric guitar's tone, which greatly helps for testing/performance.For example, composers may have
Overdriven guitars on two tracks, both could be played by a single bard, which makes switching guitar tones much easier than editing MIDI files by hand.❖ Auto-adapt notes outside of C3-C6 to help test unadapted songs.❖ Track visualization, helps for testing/debugging.
