Quartet X2 Music Studio GOLD 2.6
Quartet X2 is a music composition program and sequencer that uses the
MIDI section of your sound card to create polyphonic instrumental
Notes are drawn on a graphical staff with a click of your mouse.
Notes can be edited as quickly as they are drawn. You can easily
switch between single and polyphonic tones from one note to the next.
The whole idea is to enable you write complex melodies easily and
There are 12 independent channels: 8 melody channels, plus 4
percussion channels. The latter give the ability to create background
rhythms, beats and motifs, while the melody channels are used to
carry the main melody score. There are two pallets, or "tableaux",
one for creating the main melody, and one for the percussion section.
Use the "Quick Compose Bar" at the bottom of the main interface to
Switching from one channel to another, or to assign polyphonic values
to notes or groups of notes.
Every note on every channel can generate either single notes, or
polyphonic notes (up to 4 instrumental sounds simultaneously), in a
range that covers the full spectrum of audible tones, 10 octaves.
You can play a different instrument on every note, so you can
potentially play 150 different instruments in a single composition.
A score drawn on the staff can be saved as a standard *.MID file, for
playing on any other program capable of playing Midi files.
Partially completed scores can be saved as *.SNG files, (text
format), and can be loaded into the program for recording as *.MID
files, *.WAV files, and converted to MP3 format.
As you gain familiarity with the intuitive interface, you begin to
see how easy it is to create virtuoso compositions for a single
instrument, group of instruments, or an entire orchestra.
