Time Strike settings made on these screens will clear and replace any existing time strike schedules.

Main screen

If you wish to stop playing time strikes, tap Delete all Time Strikes, then tap the Home button (in the toolbar) to exit.

To exit without saving changes, use the Back or Home button in the tool bar at the top of the screen.

Tapping Save to Schedule at the bottom of the screen always programs the selected time strike parameters into the schedule.

Select days

In the first column, the specific day which is chosen will be edited when you move the hands of the two clocks. When All is chosen, every day will be edited the same way. It is best to edit all days together then make changes to individual days as needed. If you wish to turn any day off completely, use the green slider next to the day.

Select daily range

To select the hour, you may drag the hand of the clock, tap a number on the clock, or tap the highlighted hour to display a pull-down menu.

Adjust the Start Time clock to the first hour you wish to hear the time strike. Adjust the End Time clock to the last hour you wish to hear. Minutes will always be ignored. Be sure that on both clocks AM or PM is correctly highlighted.

Options screen

Tap Options on the bottom of the page if you wish to make changes to the default settings. The default Chime will be the Westminster. Only the top of each hour will ring by default.

Disable hours

Choose any day of the week to designate weekly quiet hours within the time ranges set on the main page. Quiet time includes other enabled quarters before and after the top of the hour selected.

Tap the hour you want to be quiet and the button will turn red. Quiet hours only apply to time ringing, no other scheduled events are affected.

Quarter Hours

Ring Quarters
Top - rings only the top of each hour, other quarters are silent
Top and Half - rings both the top and the bottom of the hour
Full - rings all four quarters of each hour
Top
Chime and Toll - the full Chime melody will play followed by the hour toll
Toll only - only the hour toll will play
Other Quarters
Chime - the appropriate portion of the top melody will play
Toll - a single strike will play

Select Melody

If you have chosen to Chime on any quarters, and want an alternative melody to Westminster, tap the selector to choose.

When you have made your adjustments on this screen, tap Close.

Custom clock chime melodies

For the system to include your custom melodies in the Time Strike settings, you need to record, using your keyboard, four chime recordings. These four recordings need to be titled as follows where (Name) is the common name of your chime.

Recording title for the top of the hour (00 minutes)
"(Name) Clock Chime"
Recording title for the half hour (30 minutes)
"(Name) Half Hour"
Recording title for the first quarter (15 minutes)
(Name) First Quarter"
Recording title for the third quarter (45 minutes)
(Name) Third Quarter"

Even if you don't ring them, all four quarters must have a recording named exactly in this way. Consider using a tolling instrument for recording clock chimes so that they sound like the hour strike bell.
