I’m happy to explain
You know what a piano roll is, yes?
The piano roll mode gives the appearance of a piano roll with lines to
represent the holes in a roll. There’s a picture of a vertical keyboard on
the left side of the screen and lines going across the screen coming from
the keyboard. There are vertical lines representing bars and measures.
You can place a line on a note, make it longer or shorter in the key of
your choice and the computer will play that note. You can compose and
arrange music that way.
Later, I will send you a picture of that screen.
