Type Stack

The Set Instrument to () block is a Sound block and a Stack block. The block changes the set MIDI instrument that the Play Note () for () Beats block will play. (The Play Drum () for () Beats block is not affected by the Set Instrument to () block; it has its own instruments in a drop-down menu.)

One sprite can "play" only one instrument at a time. In order to play multiple instruments at once, it is necessary to have multiple sprites or clones of a single sprite.

Example Uses

As this block changes the instrument, it is mainly used in projects that require multiple instruments.

Some common uses for the Set Instrument to () block:

  • Projects where a change of instrument is needed
when gf clicked
set instrument to (2 v)
  • Projects where you control instruments
  • Making music with multiple instruments
  • Making sound effects
