This page will present you all the functions that can be used to deal with harmonies, scales and various musical objects. Each function will be presented following the same model:
- Type signature: how the function is declared on the Haskell side.
- Description: verbal description of the function.
- Examples: a small list of examples that you can copy/paste in your editor.
scale function interprets a pattern of note numbers into a particular named scale. For example:
Prior to Tidal version 1.0.0, scale had a very different function as a
range operator. Veteran users will need to switch to using
range for this functionality.
scaleList function outputs all the available scales, at the time of writing:
You can build your own
scale function with additional scales if you wish, using
getScale. For example:
The above takes the standard
scaleTable as a starting point, and adds two custom scales to it. You'll be able to use the new function as normal:
toScale allows you to quickly apply a scale without naming it. For example:
The chordList function outputs all the available chords. At the time of writing:
You'll need to run
import Sound.Tidal.Chords before using this function.
arpg) function spreads chords of note numbers over time. For example, using the
1.0 version of Tidal, chord name notation & older list notation:
The arp function takes an additional pattern of arpeggiate modes. For example, using the
1.0 version of Tidal, chord name notation (root note / chord type / additional notes above the chord):
The different arpeggiate modes are:
