  • Publication number: 20180247623
    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.

    Abstract: A map recording device includes: a display which displays information; a storage; and a processor. The processor causes the display to perform a display of an arbitrary region expressed by browsing map information specified by a user's manipulation. The processor further acquires partial map information from the browsing map information. The partial map information is map information other than the browsing map information and expresses a region corresponding to a whole region displayed in the display. The storage stores the partial map information acquired in the acquiring.
