The Settings Panel

The settings panel is an important panel which contains several tabs to edit for general properties, design and remote of all objects.

This panel is contextual: it will be different according the selected object.

How to use it

To open the settings panel, uses a right click on any object (panels, rack, patch or any other objects). Once opened, you use a single left click on any other object to display its properties.

If you need to lock this panel to an object, for example to study a value when you change a parameter elsewhere, you can use the pin icon. By this way, even if you click on another object the settings panel will stay unchanged.

The general properties tab

For panels

General properties for panels, for example on the synchronization panel where you can choose which elements are visible:

Some parameters are set to invisible

Result: a small version of this panel:

For controls

For controls like faders and buttons, this tab contains some options, like caption, visibility, minimum/maximum values and more. An example with the knob:

For modules

Sets the main values of modules in the patch window, for example with a math module (A x B).

The design tab

The design tab is the place to customize visual aspects of objects. You can set all colors (background, captions and borders), opacity, rotation and size parameters, etc.

Here is an example on the large fader where opacity is set to a low value and where we add some rotation.

The snapshots icon

When you have created a layout for an object you can save a snapshot to recall it later. Click on this icon and enter a name and save it. This will create a small snapshot of your settings.

Then, the next time or for a similar object, you’ll have only to click on this snapshot to recall it.

Here is an example with 5 color variations for knobs:

The remote tab

The remote tab is where you manage all your MIDI learn, movements recordings and binds.

You can also reset those learning with the clear learn or clear record buttons.

Here is an example with the fader remote tab:

You can also notice that you can create snapshots for those parameters to save you preferences for this object.

The network tab

Patches can be shared over the lan,see OSC and Network Configurationif needed. So you’ll see this tab to select if you want share them, an option lets you also force the refresh process if need.
