    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a performance apparatus capable of changing to a performance pattern making a musically natural transition. A CPU 13 determines which stage a performance pattern of each of tracks Tr (1) to (4) currently selected belongs to, and obtains the number of performance patterns for each stage, in accordance with depression of a transition button. The CPU 13 determines that the stage having the maximum number of performance patterns is the “current stage” among the number of performance patterns for each stage obtained, and changes the performance pattern of each of the tracks Tr (1) to (4) to the stage subsequent to the determined “current stage”. Therefore, the performance pattern can be changed into a performance pattern making a musically natural transition. As a result, even a beginner user being poor in music knowledge can set an appropriate performance pattern matching the transition of the song.

  • Patent number: 10061498
    Abstract: A graph display device includes an expression input unit, a graph display control unit, first and second display control units and a coefficient changed graph display control unit. The expression input unit recognizes a functional expression. The graph display control unit displays a graph corresponding to the recognized functional expression in a display part. The first display control unit displays a first user interface object for changing a numeric value set to a variable when a coefficient in the functional expression is the variable. The second display control unit displays a second user interface object for changing a numeric value as a constant when a coefficient in the functional expression is the constant. The coefficient changed graph display control unit displays a graph corresponding to the functional expression in which a numeric value changed by the first or second user interface object is set as a coefficient value.

  • Patent number: 10061737
    Abstract: A double buffer (four pages×2 system) constituted by a DSP program buffer (D-RAM) and a prefetch program buffer (D-RAM) is provided, and burst access is performed collectively for four samplings from the prefetch program buffer (D-RAM). When this burst access is performed, a decline in performance caused by latency that occurs each time an external memory (DDR-SDRAM) is accessed is avoided by accessing with sequential addresses.
