Make audio clips of all the MIDI Instruments
Select whether to record from microphone, or midi, or "what you hear" etc...
What you see hear depends on your system and soundcard. Usually there is a fader for the microphone and one for your midi synth, or maybe "What you hear" or "Stereo mix" etc. It controls the standard levels of recording for the whole of your system and windows.
Folder where you want your recording to be saved
Choose from recently visited folders for opened files...
You can also bring this up with Ctrl + right click on the folder text box or drop list if the window has one of those.
USING THIS LIST
If you want to navigate quickly to a file in any of the folders you have previously visited - then first choose the folder you want to go to here. Then go to File | Open - or use the Open... entry in the recent files list, and you will find that you go to the folder you selected here.
WHAT YOUR SELECTION HERE CHANGES
For windows with a separate Folder text field, your selection here will immediately update that field as well (e.g. for Record to File).
Your selection here also changes the drop list of files shown in the fractal tunes drop lists, or for the retuning midi player
It doesn't change the drop lists of scales, as those are user editable menus set up with their own navigation system and needn't correspond to the locations of any scales files on disk.
WITH THE PREFERRED FOLDER OPTION SWITCHED ON
Note that you can also choose a preferred folder to go to every time for File | Open - configured in the recent file types opts.That option overrides the folder selected here.
So, if you have the preferred folder switched on, the only effect of your selection here is to change the way the files are displayed in the recent files lists.
Browse for folder...
Browse for folder to save recording into - or Ctrl + open to change file too
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.
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.
N.B. This list of neighbours may change when these pages are updated.
