Tuplets: { ~ }<len>

<len> (1 — INT_MAX)
Standard note length. Required.

{ ~ } tells the compiler to play whatever comes between the brackets within the time frame of <len>. This is especially useful for triplets, fast arpeggios, etc. Note that the length parameter is mandatory, and the compiler will return an error if it is missing.

Example

A {cg}4 ;plays notes C and G in the same time it would take to play a quarter note, i.e. as 8t notes.
A {ceg}4 ;plays notes C, E and G in the same time it would take to play a quarter note, i.e. as an 8th note triplet.
A {cdefg}4 ;plays notes C, D, E, F and G in the same time it would take to play a quarter note.
