The videos are mostly all out-of-date and/or just not very well made. What I think I'll do is start from scratch and make a new series, putting links in the top post as I go.River Cricket wrote:Wish the tutorials were easier to find - maybe edit the links into the OP?
1. Is there a simple way of disabling / enabling all rules across all tabs? I'm trying to learn from the demo BMX, but disabling every rule one-by-one across 16 different tabs so I can follow along with the annotations in tab 1 is a bit cumbersome.
My bad for muddling up the way the demo is configured. I've reverted it to a state that will hopefully make the tutorial easier to use (you shouldn't have to do anything to rules in other tabs in order to follow the tutorial).
2. Is there any alternative to click-dragging? I'd really love textbox entry, especially when setting duration/cycle beats.
Good news! Double-click already opens a textbox for entering timing values.
Edited to add: mousewheel is also an option for adjusting pretty much any variable
There is nothing currently in place for quickly adjusting qwerty input octave. I'll consider adding that to ScaleWalker (but might choose not to, because it could interfere with another thing I'm working on). Meanwhile, you could maybe do a quick mouse change using the Octave Offset slider?3. What's the quickest way of changing octaves? Is there anything similar to page up / page down in Polac's VST? Or do I have to manually assign everything one-by-one in the QWERTY editor screen?
Have you tried fiddling with the Staccato-Legato track slider? I noticed some clipping going on in the demo bmx, so put the slider for the global track to full legato, which mostly solved it (seems to be a machine-dependent thing).4. I'm getting a strange problem with clipped (as in, shortened - not volume-clipped) notes. It happens most often when sliding from a natural to an accidental - it's like the slide counts as a new note for the purposes of ending the currently-held note, but doesn't count as a new note for the purposes of starting the next note. Really throws off my JamKeying
They are switches you can use along with 'activation requirements' for a rule or a whole row (right click on a rule or a row and look for 'edit activation requirements'). You can set switch states via mouse, pattern, or rule.5. What do the A-Z letters at the bottom of the GUI signify?
