For fractal tunes, this gives the real tempo if you have each seed note set to play a single beat (no fractional seed beats) and have none of the tempo varying options switched on. Otherwise it is the basis for the tempo variations. The overall tempo may never actually be heard as it is - but if e.g. you double the overall tempo, all the real tempi get doubled.

The Set min tempo and Set max tempo options are useful if you find the tempo varies too much as a result of the other options, - you can set a limit on how far it can vary either way.

Midi Out / Save Timing

Vary beat timing and volume continously within the bar...

You use this window to set the tempo, also to vary the tempo, and volumes continuously within the seed or "bar". Also you can configure the tune note sustain - how much each note overlaps the next one.

How to get here

Use the Tempo Opts button in many of the main windows. Or Bs | Tempo and Volume for Tune. Or Ctrl + 20

How to use this window

The Tempo field here sets the overall TEMPO for the tune.

More about the overall tempo

This is the real tempo for the rhythm player. Also for some fractal tunes, for instance for File | New.

For fractal tunes, this gives the real tempo if you have each seed note set to play a single beat (no fractional seed beats) and have none of the tempo varying options switched on. Otherwise it is the basis for the tempo variations. The overall tempo may never actually be heard as it is - but if e.g. you double the overall tempo, all the real tempi get doubled.

The other options let you vary the tempo and volume away from the overall tempo and volume

The option to vary the timing or volume by arpeggio position can be used to make tunes that get quieter, or louder, or faster or slower for notes further along the arpeggio.

The options to vary the rhythm by seed position will let you make rhythms that vary in tempo within each "bar" - as is often done by human performers. The volume variation lets you vary the volume similarly.

Then - the sustain option lets you make fractal tunes with overlapping sustained notes. The Humanise Timings is useful if you find the fractal tune or metronome too crips sounding and want chords to be just a bit unsynchronised or arpeggiated.

The Set min tempo and Set max tempo options are useful if you find the tempo varies too much as a result of the other options, - you can set a limit on how far it can vary either way.

Pause before open Midi Out

Set higher if first note to play doesn't sound

Pause befpre close Midi Out

Set higher if last note is clipped or ends with a pitch glide...

If it is clipped, midi out is probably closing before the reverb dies away.

If it ends with a pitch glide, the pitch bend resets for close midi out are probably applied during the reverb before it dies away completley.

Add pause at start of midi file

Rest at start of the midi file to allow time for playback device to initialise...

This may be needed for some playback devices - if you start right away, then it is possible that the very first notes played may be lost in some players and midi out devices.

Save opts...

Various options to configure how the midi recording is done

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.

Midi Out Dialog Star

Tip of the day - Midi Relaying 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.

Neighbours, and Previous - Up - Next
