Frequency Spectrum Options


Set the maximum time for the recording to volatile temporary memory...

This window also shows how much memory is needed for a given length of recording. This depends on the audio format as well - e.g. stereo or mono, how many bits (e.g. 16 bit), and the sample rate all affect how long a recording can fit into a particular amount of memory.

Wave Shape for synthesis...

Configure the Wave Shape Player Instrument...

You can either make a new instrument from scratch, or open an existing one from the Wave Player drop menu. To make a new instrument, you need to select a type of wave using the Wave Shape drop list, then vary the parameters using the controls in the rest of this window.

To see the shape of the waveform as you edit it, use the Show in Oscilloscope button.

To use your instrument, select it into the parts window using Select in Parts.

When you have finished editing, if you want to save the result as a new instrument (or replace an existing one) use the Save As button. You can then add your instrument to the Wave Player menu using Edit Wave Shape Player Menu (Ctrl + 189))

Less <<

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Since the help for Tune Smithy is currently a bit out of date and needs to be redone completely for the new 3.0 release, then you may find the on-line page for some of the newer tasks particularly useful.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

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.

You can also right click on this icon as a quick way to get the floating drop menu of all the Tune Smithy windows organised by category
