Title: Mono Output?
Post by: Rickeyjt on February 20, 2012, 08:13:59 AM
Is there a switch to set the playback to mono.  I like to listen in just one ear sometimes.

Hi Rickeyjt

Sorry for the delay in this reply, just noticed your post. Anyway so will answer it anyway - though you probably have discovered by now!

The solution is to go to the Stereo Pan window. For this you can pan everything hard to one side or the other.

Stereo Pan (Ctrl + 50) (http://"")

0 is hard left, and 127 is hard right.

Though when you play the notes via midi with some synths even hard left gives you some sound in the right ear as well.

In the Ctrl-50 dialog "All to Centre" button produces is the desired effect. That is, I am able to use either single earbud to hear the same thing. Looks like "Left right" button resets the pan values.

It would be nice to have a toggle mono button to accomplish the above on the main screen. Perhaps under the volume bar.

Another handy toggle button would be a transposition key feature. So for example, I am randomizing every three minutes. But practicing some piano stuff, scales, patterns, etc. and then I could preset the key to auto transpose the pieces to. Toggle off and pieces return to their original key center.

Another toggle button would be for absolute tempo. When I play or practice drums I want to be able to randomize tunes but stay in a tempo zone that is right for a length of time. My website may illustrate that idea better.

These ideas are designed to allow the practicing musician to stay in certain key and tempo 'zones' that are comfortable for a long time to increase confidence and flexibility before pushing out beyond ones limits or being forced to adjust constantly.

Hi Rick,

Okay - first - screen estate in the main window is in short supply so need to think carefully about what to put there. And needs to be arranged so things are where people expect them to be in the window.

There is a check box "auto pan" so, I think best thing is to start with that.

As it is now, if you switch it on, it pans to follow the bouncing balls, or whatever type of auto pan you have. Switch it off, and it sets the stereo pan to the left - right preset.

So - why not configure it so that you can choose what happens when you switch it off?

Simplest way - make the three buttons there into push button check boxes (like the time signatures)

So when you press one of them, it gets permanently highlighted. Switch on auto pan and it gets unhighlighted, but switch it off again and it gets rehighlighted and resets to whatever was the last you used, in your case, All to centre.

Your transposition and tempo ideas seem more elaborate, maybe need to go into wish list.

With the transposition - are you using Bounce with chords, or some other pitch feature? Obviously not going to make any difference for the non melodic percussion feature.

Do say a bit more about how you use Bounce and how the transposition would help.

Same also with tempo, I'm not sure what you have in mind there. Some kind of a tempo randomizer?

Do elaborate and say a bit more about the ideas.
