While it may first appear complex, the Multi-Channel music sequencer made famous by User FVDisco is rather simple in principle. It relies on proper combination of timing and tone to create music. Each music channel produces the sound of an instrument using music blocks programmed to a specific tone and timing, just like individual instruments in an orchestra might make up a single piece of music. The complexity of the music played is up to you, as long as you remember to utilize the simple steps provided in the guide below.
How To Create a Multi-Channel Music Sequencer
Step 1 Create Your First Music Channel
The basic component of the multi-channel music sequencer is the redstone timer. The redstone timer determines the timing that each individual music channel will produce. The rhythm that each channel produces directly determines the final outcome of the music you wish to make. Each redstone circuit is connected to music boxes that will play notes based on the timing set or "programmed".
Step 2 Add Two or More Music Channels
Step 3 Program Your Channels Into a Musical Masterpiece
Be sure to experiment with various combinations of timing, tune, and sequence to arrive at the musical arrangement you desire. With a little planning, you can begin to produce musical compositions as complex as you can imagine!
