Intro

Shows the notes as you play them...

Tip: You can configure it to show note names, sol fa names, ratios, etc from the Tune Display window (Ctrl + 19))

It's meant just to give some feedback about note positions as you play. It can't be edited or saved, and you can only show your current playing, you can't move it back and forth to see earlier notes. To do all that properly would require a new program probably.

Options...

How to show the notes, and various other options for the tune window

Options...

Choose between Intervals, Score, or Graph type displays...

Intervals - the spacing of the score depends on the interval sizes, and you can customise the number of dotted lines and gaps used to break it up to make it easier to read

Score - conventional five line score, or the microposition by pitch variation on it which is similar in appearance but with variable spacing so the notes can be positioned vertically according to the exact pitch played.

Graph - shows the pitches played as a line graph

Height

Height of the score in octaves

Height - SPIN

Increase or decrease height of score in octaves

Width

width in seeds or seconds

Width - SPIN

Increase or decrease width in seeds or seconds

Seeds

Width is measured in fractal tune seeds

Secs

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Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.
