Theremin Controllers


Show controller numbers in hexadecimal...

E.g. a for 10. Usually prefixed with 0x as 0xa etc

You can enter values in hexadecimal anywhere in FTS even if this check box is unselected, just prefix the number with 0x. This check box changes how the numbers are normally displayed for the controllers fields.

Hexadecimal goes:

1 2 3 ... 9 a b c d e f

10 11 12 ... 19 1a 1b 1c 1d 1e 1f

20 ...

a0 ...

b0 ...




etc - similar pattern to decimal numbers but with sixteen digits instead of ten, with a b c d e f used for the digits with values 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16.

So for instance 0x10 is decimal 16, and 0xa is decimal 10.

Help = F1

Click for help for this window. Or F1. Other opts: Shift , Alt, Ctrl + click...

F1 or click shows the help for the current window in your web browser.

Some windows may have no help yet in which case the help icon is shown crossed out with a red line.

Shift + F1 or Shift + Click brings up the tool tips extra help window (this window) to show any extra help for a tool tip.

You can tell if a tool tip has extra help if it ends ... like this one.

Ctrl + F1 or Ctrl + click takes you to the list of keyboard shortcuts for Tune Smithy.

Alt + F1 or Alt + click (alternatively Caps lock physically held down + F1 or Click) takes you to the on-line page at the web site about the current main window task - which gives a short introduction to it for newbies to the program. If there is no on-line page specific to a task, takes you to the main tune smithy page on the web site.

Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.

Organise Windows = F2

Reset, or Save settings for this window. RIGHT CLICK for all windows menu...

Shows the Organise windows window - which you can use to reset all the parameters for the current window.

You can also use it to save the settings for just this window, or open previously saved parameters for just this window.

Also has a drop list of all the windows and their shortcuts, and related options - some to do with the menu listing, and some to do with window resizing and minimising.

Theremin Dialog Star

Show tip of the day - Theremin category - right click for neighbouring windows...

So far there is only one tip for the theremin, more to come.

So it isn't a bug if you always see the same one when you click here.

Left click for a tip of the day in this category.

Right click to see a menu of neighbouring windows.

The neighbours are the ones you most often move to after this one or within a minute of this one, arranged by popularity.
