The Music Molecule
The Music Molecule is a new representation of MIDI. More importantly, it’s a simpler and more musical representation of MIDI.
Unlike traditional MIDI editors, Liquid Rhythm doesn’t require you to have any theoretical understanding of music or the piano. It’s our way of grouping notes together in a 4/4 bar to let you actually paint entire bars of music onto your arranger. This is what we mean when we say, “Create beats one bar at a time.” With the Beat Builder, it’s always one click away.
Visually this is what’s going on:
The colours beneath the notes actually group notes together in chunks called BeatForms:
…and BeatForms are grouped together in BarForms:
This is helpful in a variety of ways. For example, you can make velocity alterations to multiple notes across multiple bars based on these pattern. You can shuffle rhythm patterns around, or even just add a single note event uniformly in multiple selected bars. You can also input notes many notes at a time.
These are just the basics. For a more detailed glimpse at the Music Molecule, check out this video below.
