Title:
ELECTRONIC MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2006292954
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To reduce a feeling of discontinuity a listener has when two accompaniment patterns of automatic accompaniments are switched.

An electronic musical instrument has an automatic accompaniment section which automatically plays one of a plurality of accompaniment patterns and an accompaniment switching section which detects switching timing t1 in response to an operation of an input device. When the automatic accompaniment section automatically plays the accompaniment from a first pattern among the plurality of accompaniment patterns to a second pattern among the plurality of accompaniment patterns in the switching timing t1, the first pattern has a first musical sound 11 which starts at first time t2 before the switching timing t1 and ends at second time t3 after the switching timing t1. The second pattern has a second musical sound 12 which starts at third time t4 before the switching timing t1 and ends at fourth time t5 after the switching timing t1. When the pitch of the first musical sound 11 is equal to the pitch of the second musical sound 12, the accompaniment is automatically played so that the first musical sound 11 ends at the fourth time t5.
