What does the accent button do?
« on: March 09, 2014, 07:30:34 am »
I've only recently purchased this, and I can't figure out what the accent button does. I imagine that it would accent one of the beats, but that's not what I hear, so what is it doing?

I just took a look at my app, and it seems the number corresponds to how many beats are in the measure, with the accent on the first beat. So if it's set to 4 then every 4th beat is accented, at 3 every 3rd beat will be accented.

That's what I figured it would do, but I'm not hearing the accent difference. I may not have it loud enough.

That's what it should do!
