It's very awesome, your concern for the students of rhythmic functions like me...
First of all, my first struggle with the book is... How can i program the metronome?, or what's the best way to make a guide when recording music over a metric modulation pattern?
i.e. if i want to record the example number 2 (on page 2), I can program the metronome at some tempo and record the bar 1, but in the moment of recording bar 2 i have some trouble because I can hit the notes approximately , but i really need to play in the right spots to make the metric modulation sound good.
I hope my point is well explained.
Infinite thanks Jan , Greetings from Mexico, I hope this season is being perfect for you!
It's funny how life works out sometimes. I was walking around with this idea in my head for a while, and then your question came along.
Once you find it, you will see that there is a link to a step by step instruction on how to use the calculator. The link is below the "New BPM Value" entry field.
The calculator is based on a formula I found inside a collaborative work written by Richard Delone, Vernon Kliewer, Hoarece Reisberg, Mary Wennerstorm, and Allen Winold.
Winold was the one who adapted the use of the formula to metric modulations, and wrote the rhythm section of the book.
I highly recommend that everyone purchase this book, as the formula is just a tiny paragraph amongst roughly 500 pages of invaluable information.
In fact, here is a picture of mine, so that you can see what the cover looks like if you decide to buy it:
Good luck recording!
All my best,
