|KeyKit :: Tools :: Parameters|
The Autoresize parameter, when on, causes tools to automatically resize themselves when the main KeyKit window is resized. For example, if you enlarge the main KeyKit window, the size of all tools will be enlarged proportionately.
The Dragquant parameters controls the quantization of the Drag operation in the Group tool.
The Menujump parameter affects the operation of menu scroll bars. When this parameter is on, the scroll bar will immediately jump to the mouse position when the mouse enters the scroll bar.
The Merge parameter controls whether MIDI input is automatically merged into MIDI output. If you have a MIDI keyboard connected directly to the input of your computer, and your synthesizer modules are connected directly to the output of your computer, then you would want the Merge value to be On (the default value), so that notes you played on the MIDI keyboard would be sent to the MIDI synthesizers. If, on the other hand, you have your routing of MIDI cables set up so that messages from your MIDI keyboard are already reaching your synthesizers, then you would not want KeyKit to Merge MIDI input with MIDI output, and you would set the Merge parameter value to Off.
The Record parameter, when on, causes all MIDI input to be added to the value of the Recorded phrase.
The Recsched parameter controls whether MIDI data that is generated by KeyKit will be recorded in the Recorded variable. Normally, only MIDI input is saved in the Recorded variable which is used, for example, when you use the "Load Rec" item in the Riff tool to load something you've just played on MIDI input. Sometimes, you want to record the output that KeyKit is generating (for example, when you're playing with the Mouse Matrix tool). By turning the Recsched parameter on, all generated MIDI output will be saved (along with MIDI input) in the Recorded variable, and you can then load it into a tool for further editing. You should only turn on Recsched for relatively short periods of time, since if you leave it on all the time, the Recorded phrase will accumulated everything you play back.
The Sweepquant parameter controls the quantization of sweeping within the Group tool (and any other tool that involves sweeping within a phrase window). For example, if you wanted to sweep out Pick phrases and you wanted to only use complete measures, you could set the Sweepquant value to Whole. From then on, when sweeping within a phrase window, the vertical sweep bars would only move in whole-note increments.
The Volstem parameter controls whether volume stems are displayed on notes within phrase windows. Volume stems are vertical lines at the front of each note. The vertical size of the line represents the relative volume of each note. You can also set (manually) the special variable Volstemsize to control the scaling of the volume stem lines.
