File Associations

Associate Tune Smithy with file types recognised by the program...

This lets you open the files in Tune Smithy by double clicking on the file in your Files Explorer

Intro

This lets you play clips on web pages retuned in FTS...

This changes your file association for midi clips. So, as well as clips in web pages, it also plays files on your local computer - if you find the file in your file explorer and open / play it (e.g. by double clicking on it).

You can use this to change your Windows midi player temporarily. When you unselect his option, your system reverts to your previously selected miid player for Windows (reverts to the previous file association for .mid files).

Techy note:

FTS can't yet play format 1 clips directly, but it can now n do so by converting them to a temporary format 0 file, which it does automatically behind the scenes now.

Details about format 0, 1 and 2:

Format 0 lets you do everything you can do in formats 1 and 2 and indeed it is probably the most popular midi format. The only difference is in how the events get laid out within the file. In format 0 all the events get put into one track (that is track,not channel - it is a concept that only applies to the way the midi file gets organised). This makes them easier to play because you just need to start at the beginning of the track and work through it playing the events as you get to them just as you do when playing in real time.

In formats 1 and 2 each channel gets a separate track in the file. The coding to play such files is more complex which is why FTS does format 0 directly, and the other formats indirectly.

Format 2 is rare - it lets you have several format 0 type tunes in the same file, and if you do encounter any of those, FTS will play only the first tune in the file. You can unpack format 2 files using Guenter Nagler's midi utilities:

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

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.
