Harmony Function.
« on: June 28, 2017, 12:20:06 PM »
Hi Folks
I have just been reading the topic from 2015 and found it engrossing. It is a subject dear to my heart and have been trying on and off for ages to establish what notes are actually played when e.g. 4way Close 2 is selected.
Many thanks to Ed B for supplying detail that surely should be available in all manuals.
A few years ago I dabbled with Band In A Box and although I considered I was cheating by typing in the chords, I had a lot of fun with the Errol Garner piano harmonies.
Perhaps members might be interested in a BIAB function that applies to using a harmony, namely that a run can be played as single notes by adjusting the time ( milliseconds) between the notes before the harmony function applies. Why Yamaha haven't used this facility in their keyboards, I don't know, as it is a much better method than the one used, (key pressure), within the harmony function.
