Automatic Bridge Segment

Check this if you generally want to use this Segment  for all transitions from any other Theme to this Segment's Theme. As long as there is at least one Segment marked as a Bridge Segment within a Theme, all other Segments within this Theme are implicitly blocked.


Default compatiblity as follower

Here you can set if this Segment usually works well when played after most other Segments. If is does, set the default compatibility to "allowed" (default behavior). If it doesn't, set the compatibility to "blocked". In this case you need to manually allow transitions to this Segment by selecting all its compatible predecessors in the Source Tree, and right-click this Segment until it is marked as light green in the Target Tree view.


Prebeat/Postbeat Length - Set Manually

Check this if you want to enter the Pre- and Postbeat regions manually,in case you know their exact number of samples. The other option is to have the Prebeat/Postbeat times calculated automatically, based on the BPM of your Theme and the number of beats kept blank before the loop-able region of your Segment.


PreBeat Length (Samples)

If the Set Manually option is enabled, enter the length of the PreBeat region in samples. The PreBeat region is the region before the loop-able region of a Segment. See How Segments are mixed.


PostBeat Length (Samples)

If the Set Manually option is enabled, enter the length of the PostBeat region in samples. The PostBeat is the region of an audio sample after the loop-able musical measure, usually containing decaying sounds and reverb. See How Segments are mixed.


Beats per minute

Enter the beats per minute of the associated audio sample. (used to calculate the Pre- and PostBeat regions based on their length in beats and the bpm of the audio sequence.)


Pre beats

The length of your PreBeat region, measured in beats.


Post beats

The length of your PostBeat region, measured in beats.
