Volumes as

How to show volumes - choose which range is most useful...

The 0 to 127 is useful if you want to compare it with midi data as midi velocities use this range.

Play exact interval

Set all the chords to play the exact desired intervals above the root...

The root of the chord is still quantised to the scale or arpeggio. The exact intervals to use are specified using the chord notations, e.g. Cj for the just intonation major chord, C for the 12-et one etc. See the help for the chord progression player.

Quantise to scale pitches

All the chords to play the nearest available scale pitches to the desired notes

To arp. pitches

All the chords to play the nearest available arpeggio pitches to the desired notes

Broken

Play broken chords - just for testing and listening to component notes

Any inversion okay

Let the chords be inverted - you don't care which inversion is used...

It is done so that the inverted chords all use a similar range of pitches - chords that span less than an octave will be inverted if necessary until they only use notes in the first octave above the 1/1.

For the Chords for PC keyboard keys (Ctrl + 172) window - that's how it works if you have the option to transpose all the PC keyboard chords to notes played switched off. When the chords get transposed, they work similarly, but inverted if necessary so that they only use notes in the first octave above the note to be played.

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Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.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

Reset, or Save settings for this window. RIGHT CLICK for all windows menu...

Shows the Organise windows window - which you can use to reset all the parameters for the current window.

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

Also has a drop list of all the windows and their shortcuts, and related options - some to do with the menu listing, and some to do with window resizing and minimising.

Other Dialog Star

Tip of the day - For All 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.

The neighbours are the ones you most often move to after this one or within a minute of this one, arranged by popularity.

So as you continue to use FTS, it will learn your habits, and the neighbouring windows listed here, should be the ones you most often visit after this one.
