To quote myself [err . . . this reminds me of something else]:
"It is, frankly, an easy, albeit tedious, piece of work to churn out
individual sound files from some program that produces notes (c.f.
Sibelius) for each semitone on the musical scale; and then import
them into a stack, and then code to play audioClips."
while it is possible to set the playRate of a player this cannot be
done for an audioClip as such;
now, one could set up a player and keep loading individual audioClips
of notes into it by continually resetting the fileName property . . .
BUT . . . t h i n g s w o u l d g e t b o g g e d
d o w n rather like playing a 45 gramophone record at 33
[and, methinks this would be mucho memory hungry - especially on low-end
PCs; and, come to think of it, because it depends on parts of end-users'
operating systems that are optional (QT, xanim (???)), it would be all
a bit silly]
(and I am quite sure that the current participants in this discussion
can remember 'platters', 'waxes' and so forth :)
The thing about my BBC Micro and a Hypercard stack was that things
happened on time; which, for music, is not a bad idea.
