Contents

Options for Seed, Arpeggio & Scale Play buttons

Part to play

If this shows Highl. Part it plays whichever part is highlighted in Parts window...

Or the first part highlighted if it is a multiple selection.

To set this to the highlighted part, enter 0 for the part number or adjust the number downwards below 1 using the up / down control

Parts...

Set which instruments play in the various parts, and volume etc

More >>

Shows this window with either more space, more options, or alternative layout

What to play

Whether to play a chord, broken chord or sequence of notes

Asc. / desc.

Play the broken chord or sequence ascending, descending, both, or endlessly

Figuration

Figuration to play for the sequence or broken chord...

If you want a figuration that starts at the beginning, and repeats shifted up one step at a time then enter any sequence of numbers that begins with 0 and ends with 1.

Example

0 1 3 1

when ascending

would repeat as

0 1 3, 1+0 1+1 1+3, 2+0 2+1 2+3 ...

i.e.

0 1 3, 1 2 4, 2 3 5 ...

Keeps going until it gets to the last note of the sequence (or above it)

Pattern is inverted for the descending sequence or broken chord

If the figuration ends with 0 or less, it is played in its entirety once only

Play in time for

Varies speed of broken chord or sequence so they always take the same time....

So if the broken chord or sequence has more than normal then the notes are played faster, if less then slower, adjusted so that the complete sequence is always played in the same time.

Play in time for

Number of notes to play at normal speed...

If there are more notes than this in the broken chord or sequence, they are played faster, otherwise slower, to take the same total time.

note chord - SPIN

Adjust the number of notes to play at normal speed...

Grace notes

When selected, broken chord or sequence times are taken from the total time...

So e.g. if the broken chord is played for a total of one beat, and each note is 0.1 beats, a five note broken chord would take half a beat, leaving half a beat to sustain it.

A ten note broken chord would then take up the entire beat, with no sustain and a broken chord of even more notes would extend the total time for the broken chord (unless the option is selected to play each chord for the same total time whatever the number of notes)

(Similarly for sequence)

The total time needed to play the broken chord or sequence can vary if this option is unselected, and the option to play in the time for a particular number of notes is also unselected.

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.

Organise Windows = F2

Or F2 - Reset / save / open for individual windows, right click for cat. list...

Shows the Organise windows window - which you can use to reset all the parameters for the current window - or save them all, or open previously saved parameters for just this window. Also has a drop list of all the windows and their shortcuts.

You can also right click on this icon as a quick way to get the floating drop menu of all the Tune Smithy windows organised by category

Scales Dialog Star

Tip of the day - Scales category - right click for neighbouring windows...

Left click for a tip of the day in this category.

Right click to see a menu of neighbouring windows.
