Im new to edison robot and when I typed in this code, it said syntax error, incorrect argument used in Ed.TuneString1 called.

Hi Lok,

Yes, I can help you with this. TuneString can be a little bit tricky to work with.

Here is an example working TuneString, including rests:

simple = Ed.TuneString(9, “d4d4r4f4z”)

I can see a few issues with your TuneString function parameters:

1) You need a size parameter before your tune. This is the length of the tune string – the count of the characters in it. (eg the 9 above)

2) You need to specify a duration for your rests the same as for notes, eg ‘r4’

3) There is a small error in the documentation, rests need to be lowercase ‘r’, not uppercase ‘R’

Have another go with this information, and let me know how you go!

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.
