Type Stack

The Rest for () Beats block is a Sound block and a Stack block. The block pauses its script for the specified amount of beats - the amount of beats 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.

Behind the Scenes

The block can be replicated with the following code:

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 way.
