Let's say I wanted to specify odd note lengths in tidal cycles.
For instance I want to play a sequence that takes up one bar of four beats
with three notes in the bar.
note 1 = 1/2 bar or two beats
note 2 & 3 = 1/2 a bar or two beats
would I write something like:
setcps (140/60/4) d1 $ n "< cs3 [ds3 e3] >" # "moog"
I know I can insert rests or silence in a sequence using the ~ sign but is there a way
to indicate the note takes up X amount of beats such as
d1 $ n "< cs3_ _ [ds3_ e3_] >" # "moog"
Where for instance the _ is one beat so cs3_ _ is telling tidal to play cs3 for two beats?
What about for fractions like 16ths? I'm trying to combine odd note durations values in a sequence such as 3 16th notes in a row followed by a half note and then a 16th note and then a quarter note
and it would be easy if there was a way to specify note durations.
[cs3 ds3 e3 ds3 cs3 b2] , [1/16, 1/16, 1/16, 1/2, 1/16, 1/4]
or is there something like the above example?
