The instruments in C Sound Instruments for Parts (Ctrl + 169) are used only for C-Sound recordings and Parts (Ctrl + 9) is used for everything else - this is the key to understanding how C-Sound works with Tune Smithy.

So - you set up each tune with one set of instruments for CSound and another set of instruments for everything else. It's done like this because Tune Smithy can't play the CSound instruments in real time directly - so it would be confusing to the user to put them into Parts (Ctrl + 9).

So with every tune you have

  1. The midi instruments or wave shape player instruments. These get used whenever you play the notes directly in Tune Smithy.
  2. The C-sound instruments. These get used when you save the tune as a CSound recording

So to make a C-Sound recording, you can set up the individual instruments in C Sound Instruments for Parts (Ctrl + 169). You can use the Play button here to preview the sound of individual instruments. Then use the option in Record to file (Ctrl + 11) to save as CSound and auto convert the CSound score to audio.

The reason you can't play the tune on CSound instruments directly in Tune Smithy is because you have to make a C-Sound score first, then convert it to an audio recording before you play it.

But you can play the instruments in real time using CSoundAV with C Sound AV Opts (Ctrl + 181) . When you have that configured properly, you can use a Virtual Midi Cable such as Midi Yoke, Loopbe1, etc. to relay the midi notes for Tune Smithy to C-Sound AV and so listen to them in real time that way.
