Hi Alex,

why does this work: d1 $ every 4 (rev) (sound "bd2 [bd [sn sn2 sn] sn]")

but this doesn't: d1 $ every 4 (rev) $ sound "bd2 [bd [sn sn2 sn] sn]"

given that this does: d1 $ every 4 (fast 4) $ sound "bd2 [bd [sn sn2 sn] sn]"

how should I think of the "$" versus the "()"?

thanks! Julio

They should all work just fine, what's the error you're getting with the second?

In general $ just means "do everything on the right first".
