0x40 help: creating rhythm strings (rough draft)
- ==How do I created new beats?==
- This is a great question, Anon! Creating new beats with 0x40 Hues v5.0™ is actually very simple, indeed!
- Before you begin, make sure you actually have a song loop to edit! You can probably find loops online, otherwise, you can make them yourself from the song you like. We here at 0x40 Hues prefer Audacity for this purpose. (Hint: use Shift-Enter to test how your loop sounds in Audacity!) Be sure that your loop is saved as a .wav file OR as a .mp3 (but only if you use the LAME mp3 encoder).
- Now, in the flash, click on the gear icon. This will bring up the options window, where you'll click on EDITOR.
- Enter a unique name for your new loop in the NAME box, e.g. "my_cool_loop" (without the quotation marks)
- In the title box, enter the Artist - Song Name combination, e.g. "Madeon - Finale" (again, without quotation marks)
- Now comes the fun part! Press the "Load Loop" button to open up a file selection dialog.
- Locate your loop (.wav or LAME-encoded .mp3 file) and click "Open".
- If you've done everything right so far, the loop should begin playing! Adjust your rhythm map with the DOUBLE and HALVE buttons,
- or your keyboard, until the beat cursor is lining up to the beats in your loop.
- From here, you can edit the rhythm! Check the Beat Glossary on the INFORMATION tab to see which characters you can use in the
- rhythm map.
- Once you've finished with the loop, you can optionally add a "Buildup" and use the same process to edit its rhythm map.
- When you're done, copy or save the XML file to keep your precious work!
