methods

var tune = require('tune');

var t = tune(notes)

Returns a function: function(time[, options]) that will return a value based on time between -1 and 1 to formulate a wave. Then you return the value within your baudio function.

notes can be a single note string: 'A#5' or an array of notes: ['C4', 'D5', 'E4', 'Gb7']. Mark notes with sharps # and flats b. Then ending number refers to the octave. In a sequence if the octave isn't specified, it will use the last set octave or 4. Use . for muted notes.

options are an object literal {}:

  • tempo [4] - how fast to transition through the notes
  • volume [1.0] - volume to play the tune: 0.0 - 1.0

  • 0.1.2 - Add mute notes.
