Stop Note Action

Definition:

The Stop Note action stops the QuickTime Musical Instrument which is identified using the MIDI instrument parameter (requires QuickTime version 2.5 or above).  The pitch of the note to be stopped is defined by the Formula  parameter.

The Stop Note action is used for instruments that will sustain a note unless explicitly told to stop (e.g., trumpet). Other instruments (e.g., percussion) stop a note automatically.

Parameters:

MIDI instrument, formula

Example:

The Player2 agent in the MIDI Music simulation stops playing notes with the Echoes instrument when it looks like the depiction in the first condition of the "IF" rule, and sees a note to its left.

See the MIDI Music simulation.

Ristretto Information:

This action will not operate in Ristretto-generated applets.
