Help for Tune Smithy
From Tune Smithy
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. The reason for doing it like this is that there isn't any correlation between the C-Sound instruments and the Midi ones - the C-Sound ones are unique instruments made using the C-Sound language.
So with every tune you have
- The midi instruments or wave shape player instruments which get used whenever you play the notes directly in Tune Smithy or save them to midi files.
- The C-sound instruments which get used when you save the tune as a CSound recording - or play the tune via CSound AV in real time.
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.
You can't play the tune on CSound instruments directly in Tune Smithy - that's because the CSound has to be converted 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) and use a Virtual Cable to relay the midi notes for Tune Smithy to C-Spimd AV amd so listen to them in real time that way.
