Tempo Variance Command

This command is used to insert a tempo variance into the score. The following variance styles are supported:

The other marks do not use a delay. They scan on both sides of the variance event to find the presence of tempo marks. If they are found, then the change from one tempo to the next is introduced gradually at a rate determined by the distance up to the next tempo mark. If a tempo mark is not found either before or after the variance mark, then no change in the tempo is introduced into the play back of the staff/score.

Note that it is up to the composer to make sure that the tempo variance that is actually implemented reflects the change indicated in the text. For example, it is technically possible to create a section which slows down in tempo and yet is labeled as Accelerando.
