Rest for () Beats
2.0 Rest for () Beats.png
Category Sound
Type Stack
Introduced in 1.2.1

The Rest for () Beats block is a Sound block and a Stack block. The block pauses its script for the specified amount of beats, which can be a decimal number. To change the length of beats, the Change Tempo by () block and the Set Tempo to () bpm block can be used.

Note Note: Some musical knowledge may be needed to fully understand this article.

Example Uses

As the block will pause its script with beats instead of seconds, it is widely used in music scripts where there must be pauses that fit the beat.

Some example uses for the Rest for () Beats block:

  • Pauses in songs made with the "play note/drum" blocks
play drum (8 v) for (0.25) beats
rest for (0.2) beats
  • A pause in sound effects made with the Sound Blocks
  • A music generator

Notation

Unlike sheet music, the block uses number values to determine the beats. This table shows the beat number values for the most common rests in the most common time signatures, interpreted in the most basic ways.

WholeRest.png HalfRest.png QuarterRest.png 8thRest.png 16thRest.png
TimeSig4.png 4 2 1 0.5 0.25
TimeSig8.png 8 4 2 1 0.5
TimeSig2.png 2 1 0.5 0.25 0.125

Workaround

Main article: List of Block Workarounds

This block can be replicated with the following code:

wait (((60) / (tempo)) * (number of beats)) secs

However, this freezes the sprite and should be avoided in 1s1s projects.[problematic]
