Touch Analysis

  reports the musical analysis, which bells perform all of the work and the calling positions transposed for each bell.

Musical Analysis

  looks for named rows (eg. Queens, Kings, Tittums), Near Misses and Combination Near Misses.   It also looks for roll ups and combined roll ups (CRUs) including all parts of rounds, reverse rounds, odds and evens (parts of queens) +reversed, major and minor chords, and alternates (eg., within each change and across hand+back strokes.   With v10.19, this has been substantially extended to include unlimited touch lengths (including an extent of Major) and more musical sequences, transposed, and extended on higher numbers.   Over 130 musical sequences can be found on 8 bells (over 600 on 16), although which rows are musical is, of course, personal, and you get different music (and results) with the tenor behind.   The summary shows the CRU Found count, the Distinct CRU count and Distinct Row count.

Musical Analysis Options

  lets you select 2, 3 or 4 bell sequences off back/front, 3 or 4 bell sequences in the middle or across hand+back, 3 or 4 bell alternates, Minor chords and Named Rows or the respective bell sequences.

All the work:

  shows which bells do all the work of working bells, all the work of plain leads (incl. unaffected), all the affected work at calls, and also which are unaffected.   These can be useful, either for the technically minded peal ringers, or to help a learner on practice night.   This includes multi-method touches, where all the work at plain leads is significant.

Calling Positions:

  Each of the working bells is listed, with the positions when each call is made, transposed for each bell.   While calling positions are usually applied to the tenor, this can help you to identify touches which can be called easily from another bell.   The Call Pos' button allows you to copy a set, for any of the bells, directly to the calling positions editor.
Screen Shot 1:   This example is a standard 120 of Plain Bob Minor, Wrong and Home repeated, from the tenor.

The stars indicate that the roll-up might be found in distinct rows or across hand-back strokes.   You can select whether to show and count roll-ups shorter than 3 or 4 bells.

All working bells are shown to do all the work, as they each start at least one lead in each place.   None of the bells do all the work of affected bells, at the calls   ie. Run In, Run Out and Make The Bob at succesive Bob calls.   The 6 is unaffected at all of the calls.

The position names are editable, so you could change 'makeit' to M (normally Middle), 4, 4ths, F, IV or anything else, if you like.

Method, Touch and Peal Prover

The prover checks methods and touches, including spliced, of unlimited length, so an extent of Major is no problem. The prover has a fast-check mode for most methods, and the false rows, false lead heads and false course heads reports give details of duplications.
