The v statement provides for locally variable time warping of score events.
p1 Time warp factor (must be positive).
The v statement takes effect with the following i statement, and remains in effect until the next v statement, s statement, or e statement.
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.
