Clicking on the "show options" button on the toolbar will provide controls to adjust the sound of each instrument.

Users can adjust any setting without affecting or limiting the other options within that instrument menu, such as a reverb setting and a distortion setting.

Simple Options

The simple options contain the lock, volume, reverb (classic reverb by default), and delay controls. They also include all instruments. Taping on one gives access to that instrument.

Advanced Options

The advanced options contain more controls for the selected instrument. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Lock - toggles the instrument lock, which prevents the current instrument from being placed or selected.
  • Mute - mute the instrument.
  • Solo - play only that instrument.
  • Copy - copies the settings of the current instrument to the clipboard as a string. The settings string is not instrument exclusive.
  • Load - reads the contents of the clipboard and parses it to settings, if possible.
  • Clone - create a clone of the current instrument and its settings.
  • Delete - delete a cloned instance of the instrument.
  • Reset - reset all advanced options to default.
  • Volume - set the default instrument volume.
  • Delay - toggles the delay effect.
  • Panning - panning slider from left to right, with central being value 0.
  • Detune - set the detune value from -1200 to 1200 (users can hold shift and click to scroll more precisely).
  • Reverb - set the reverb effect and amount for the instrument (only one may be used at any time).
  • Distort - add a distortion effect and strength (only one may be used at any time).
  • Equalizer - adjust high, mid, and low equalizer values.
