Notation Playback 2.2 is a
Windows program designed to file and play back your
notation of djembe, bass and bell parts. The program is based on
the graphic Djembe font - but also allows you to write as well as
print user defined ASCII character notation.
Simple Notation - the notes are inserted on the note line
by "click and drop" or keyboard input. You can enter the name
of the rhythm, the instrument used, what part and
version it is, its origin and any additional remarks.
Simple Playback - you
can only play back one notation line at a time, but several lines
can be played consecutively and then be repeated. The notation line
is played back through the use of short samples of each notated
sound, which are put together and repeated continuously.
Adjustable Tempo - you can choose any playback tempo by clicking
on the Faster (+) and Slower (-) buttons beside the
Play (>) button. As you listen to a selected part you
will see a hand symbol moving just above each note that is being
played - to make it very easy to follow.
Versatile Printing -
you can print a complete
list, a selected interval, an appendix, all parts
of the current rhythm and the current part only.
User Defined Notation - your notation can either be printed
using the default graphic Djembe Font or the user defined ASCII
characters. You can also print a notation legend that
covers both of these options.
Import and Export Notation - you can easily exchange rhythms
with other NP users by importing and exporting notation data
files. You can also use the even simpler Copy and
Paste option for the Notation Playback Rhythm Exchange
