Wave Shape Player Instruments
Or type new name - recognises fragmentary names
Type instrument name to select it for highlighted part(s) in Parts window...
You can enter fragmentary names and it doesn't need to be the first word in the instrument name.
Example S or sine for sine wave, Square or sq for rounded square wave or even the likes of elm for Viking helmet.
Many of the names perhaps begin with S or have Sq in them, but this will always choose a unique instrument. It will pick up the one considered to be the "best match" by various criteria - or just the first found if many are equally good matches.
It favours complete words first, then letter sequences that begin words, then letter sequences anywhere in the word. Also favours the first word in the name.
