The People – Variation 12 #67

This is a final version of variation #12 with a few modifications. I changed some parts to ensure that when playing any one tetrad, the chances of another tetrad slipping through are greatly reduced. Previously the bass part was always in the “a” tetrad even when the upper voices were in the “b”, “c”, or “d” tetrad. That’s no longer the case, as the whole band plays in the same tetrad at the same time. I also modified the volume settings to boost the audio on the extremely quiet parts. The same basic structure is used in this version, with a few more tetrad combinations. Here is the part of the source code where the macros are called to make the music:
