Score Syntax: Statements

v Statement


  v  p1

Description

The v statement provides for locally variable time warping of score events.

P Fields


  p1    Time warp factor (must be positive).

Special Considerations

The v statement takes effect with the following i statement, and remains in effect until the next v statement, s statement, or e statement.

Examples

The value of p1 is used as a multiplier for the start times (p2) of subsequent i statements.


  i1   0 1  ;note1

  v2

  i1   1 1  ;note2

In this example, the second note occurs two beats after the first note, and is twice as long.

Although the v statement is similar to the t statement, the v statement is local in operation. That is, v affects only the following notes, and its effect may be cancelled or changed by another v statement.

Carried values are unaffected by the v statement (see Carry).


  i1   0 1  ;note1

  v2

  i1   1 .  ;note2

  i1   2 .  ;note3

  v1

  i1   3 .  ;note4

  i1   4 .  ;note5

  e

In this example, note2 and note4 occur simultaneously, while note3 actually occurs before note2, that is, at its original place. Durations are unaffected.


  i1   0 1

  v2

  i.   + .

  i.   . .

In this example, the v statement has no effect.
