More Midi In Options.
Ignore midi in Insturment changes
Use this if you want to change the instrumentation for the midi clip on playback...
One way to do this is to play it once to get the original instruments all showing in the Parts window, then unselect this option and change them to what you want, and play it again.
That works so long as it has a single instrument to each channel. You can't change the instrument used after instrument changes in a single channel in the orignal as this works by just ignoring all instrument changes throughout the file.
Ignore MIDI In pitch bends / wheel
Ignore any pitch bends in the file you are retuning...
Normally this is unselected, so that if the file has pitch swoops and glissandi in it, the retuned notes will get pitch inflected in the same way.
However, if the midi clip has already been retuned to some twelve equal temperament, say, you may wish to ignore the original tuning in order to try it out with other tunings. If so, select this to ignore the original tunings.
If you don't do this, FTS will treat the pitch bends in the file as additional pitch bends on top of your desired tuning.
Quantise Midi In Notes to fractal tune or metronome
When selected, notes from midi on or PC keyboard get played on next beat...
So your playing then will always be exactly in time with the metronome - but to do that you have to play every beat slightly ahead of the metronome as it can only delay the notes you play, and not anticipate them.
