Documentation - Changing the Preferences
Under Windows and Linux the preferences are found in the 'options' menu.
Under MacOSX the preferences are found in the 'tartini' menu.
The list down the left hand side has different types of preferences. Clicking here will change to the desired preferences.
Once you have chosen you new preferences, click 'OK' for them to take effect.
Clicking the 'Reset Defaults' button will put all the preferences back to the install state.
SoundHere the input and output devices can be chosen along with their parameters. Note: Sometimes the same device can come up multiple times.
We suggest Mono, 44100kHz with 16 bit for general use. Higher rates require more CPU processing.
Some sound cards do not support mono, causing recording and play back at double speed. In this case use Stereo.
Stereo can become very useful when it is done with two microphones. This allows dynamic levels to be measured in two different locations at the same time. For example a musician can put one near and one far to compare how their crescendo sounds to the audience.
The 'muting when recording' checkbox only works under Linux at the moment. You should choose the appropriate settings for the sound from the operating system control pannel.
AnalysisThese are more advanced options related to how the analysis is performed.
'Do frequency analysis': Unchecking this will disable all analysis. This can be useful if you just want to record smoothly on a slow machine. Just re-check this box before reloading the file to get the analysis.
'Do harmonic analysis': Unchecking this will disable features which use information about the harmonics, e.g. the 3D Harmonic Track. This will use less CPU.
'Do human-ear-filter for equal-loudness': Unchecking this will disable the pre-filtering of the signal
'Analysis Type': McLeod Pitch Method (MPM). For info about this algorithm see www.tartini.net. Autocorrelation as also been implemeted.
'Default Threshold': This value is used for any newly loaded/created channels. This threshold is used in MPM to determine the octave of a note. If you find the wrong octave is consistantly being chosen then try changing this threshold.
ColoursHere the you can modify the background colours.
