Play Keyswitches from PC keyboard, on-screen keyboard or via midi in

Keyswitches are notes that trigger changes in playing style on some instruments. With this window you can:

1. Play keyswitches from on screen keyboard or PC keyboard

2 Play keyswitches from a Midi In channel, or

3. Send keyswitches on unchanged from midi in...

To find out more about keyswitch notes see What are keyswitches below.

HOW TO USE

Swtich on "Send keyswitch notes to all channels for parts"

Set the parts you want to send the keyswitches for, i.e. the parts which play the keyswitch instruments.

Then set the range of keyswitch notes - set the first keyswitch note and the number of notes to play.

WHAT BOUNCE METRONOME DOES "BELOW THE HOOD"

It sends any keyswitch notes unchanged to all the midi channels assigned to the part in Midi Output Channels for Parts and Polyphony (Ctrl + 60)

WHAT ARE KEYSWITCHES

Keyswitches are notes, usually below the range of an instrument, that are used to change the playing style. For instance they are often used to play stringed instruments pizzicatto or arco or to set a legato or staccato playing style.

Keyswitch notes are not sounded. They only change te playing style. For instance note 24 might switch it to arco playing style and note 26 switch it to pizzicato or something like that.

They are usually below the natural range of the instrument, but sometimes, e.g. for double bass, they may use notes above its natural range.

PC Keyboard Player (Ctrl + 112)

Play with PC Keyboard - percussion, or melodic instruments, with sustain, and sostenuto and various layouts including Janko style keyboard...

You can choose what to play using On Screen Keyboards - Volume Sensitivity etc (Ctrl + 24) - with options for instance to play a different part for each row of the pc keyboard. The option to play melodic instruments using a Janko hexagonal keyboard type layout is in the More (several times) version of On Screen Keyboards - Volume Sensitivity etc (Ctrl + 24).

You can set what to show, and also set which keys are used as the sustain or sostenuto pedals in On screen keyboards - To Show, sustain, sostenuto, and controller (Ctrl + 123)

with Middle C at octave: (editable)

Defaults to 4, as middle C is shown as C4 in the "scientific pitch notation" - but in other notations it can be e.g. 3 or 5.
