Tracks

There are three distinct types of Tracks in Reflow :

  • Tablature Track
  • Standard Track
  • Drums Track

Once you've created a track of a certain type, you won't be able to change it later.

However, you can still try to copy/paste notes and beats from a track of one type to another one, and Reflow will try to keep as much information as possible.

Tablature Tracks

Tablature tracks are naturally used for any stringed instruments such as Guitars, Bass, Ukulele, Banjo, Mandolin.

Note pitch is driven by the string and fret.

Standard Track

These tracks are composed of just standard notation staff.

This is widely used by any classical instrument or vocalists.

There is no fret/string information for these tracks, you can enter notes and accidentals the way you want.

You can also create a standard track with two staves, known as the Grand Staff. Pianists often need two staves, one for each hand.

Drums Track

Drums tracks look very similar to standard tracks, but their inner representation is very different.

Drums notes are not pitch driven, the height of the note does not change the pitch but instead every drum element is mapped to a specific staff line and note head symbol.

Track Properties

The configuration of your tracks can be modified using the Track Properties popup. You can open it with the mixer icon on the top bar.
