JAM SPACE : POCKETSTUDIO - DSiWare™


Q
: How long can my songs be?

A: On the top screen you’ll see a progress bar that fills as you build up your composition. When it reaches the end, it will turn red and you won’t be able to add any more notes. It’s not an exact number and varies depending on your song – but rest assured, you’ve got plenty of space!

Q: What’s the best way to trigger style pattern playback?

A: There are a lot of different ways you can trigger your style playback – as long as your stylus is down and you keep sliding it, it will continue to trigger steps in the pattern. It will only reset or stop when you lift your stylus or stop moving it. The speed that you slide your stylus has an impact on how fast your pattern plays back. Try different motions – circular as if you’re spinning a wheel, or back and forth both work well.

Q: But I’m having a hard time playing in-time with my style patterns?

A: Not to worry, you can turn on the metronome, and then during recording playback, your style pattern will be automatically quantized to the tempo you have selected regardless of how fast or slow you slide your stylus on screen.

Q: Ok, so how do I change tempo again?

A: Slide out the transport ruler, and you will see a numbered button, touch the number (which represents tempo) to toggle between the available tempo settings.

Q: Can I switch between modes once I’ve selected one?

A: Yes, simply press START to bring up the in-game menu, and you can choose TOGGLE MODEs to be able to switch between Quick Jam and Studio Session modes. You can also create new songs and perform other useful operations from this menu.
