Changing Time Signature Within Song

Postby SableGuy » Fri May 27, 2016 8:13 pm

So I've been using FamiTracker for a while, and understand how to change row and stuff to make it so that I can write in things other than 4/4, but how would I go about changing from something like 4/4 to something more awkward like 7/8 or 10/8 in the middle of a song? Is that possible? Help if you can and thanks in advance.

You can use the Fxx command to change the speed (frames per row), and alternate between different speeds to create a swing beat. Is that what you mean?

Using Fxx only creates grooves, and does not affect the time signature. To truly change time signature in a song, you must change the number of rows.
I have arranged these for you.

2/4 Timing: 32 rows
3/4 Timing: 48 rows.
5/4 Timing: 80 rows.
12/8 Timing: 96 rows.

Hopefully this helps.
I have permanently switched to 0CC-FamiTracker. If and when JSR decides to update vanilla FamiTracker at this point is entirely out of the question for me.

You may find it easy to use D00 to skip to the next frame, effectively changing the number of rows in a certain frame.
