You can set up any part with an instrument, volume, controllers and other parameters here. You can also set a different tuning for each part too using the Scales for Parts window.

This part then can be used in many places in Tune Smithy using the part number, and is the equivalent of a Midi Out channel in FTS. You can't use Midi channels directly as the notes for a single part often have to be relayed to many different channels for retuning purposes.

Non melodic percussion...

Non melodic percussion - Keyboard users - Alt again, left && right arrows...

Select an instrument from the menu or enter its name into the text box. Your selection is used for the currently highlighted part in the Parts (Ctrl + 9)) window.

To select the instrument into all the parts in the Parts window, use the Select for all parts check box .

How show this window

Non Melodic Percussion in the main window Instr. menu, or Non M. Perc. in the Parts window menu.

Shortcut keys: Ctrl + 21

Special note for blind and partially sighted keyboard users

The non melodic percussion menu actually appears in a new separate window which the user can move around and place where they like on the screen. So it is like a floating menu - but permanently available until user closes it.

So, to get to it you need to use the Alt key a second time. This also means you can get to this window using Ctrl + tab once it is shown, and you can close it like any other window.

All the entries are set out horizontally in a word wrapped row, to give more space for them, so you need to use the left and right arrow keys to navigate instead of the up and down arrows.

For melodic instruments use Instruments (Ctrl + 8).

For the wave shape instruments use Wave Shape Player Instruments (Ctrl + 196).

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 robertinventor.com 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.

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