Title: PLAYING SUPPORT DEVICE AND METHOD
Abstract:
To support the playing of a foot-operated element group (a pedal keyboard) that comprises a plurality of foot-operated elements (pedal keys) that are operated by the feet of a player, the present invention displays, on a display screen (200), a foot-operated element image (a pedal keyboard image PIM) that shows the foot-operated element group. The present invention also: sequentially acquires model playing data that includes at least information that indicates the pitches and rhythm of a foot part that is to be played using the foot-operated element group; and visually designates (for example, adds a marker image MK1 to) specific foot-operated elements that correspond to the pitches of the foot part as included in the acquired model playing data. At the same time, on the basis of the information that indicates the rhythm of the foot part as included in the acquired model playing data, the present invention presents the rhythm for the pitches that correspond to the visually designated specific foot-operated elements. The presentation of the rhythm includes, on an image of musical notes or the like, the timing and length of the sounds to be produced, and may additionally include an appropriate marker (MK2) that indicates how playing should progress.
