Saving Tuning Data and Reviewing It


You can save the tuning data to a proprietary file at
Options | Save Tuning Data to Disk File. This saves the pitch and volume information pixel by pixel. You can then view the graph information as a static image. After you Halt the tuning trace, or uncheck Options | Save Tuning Data to Disk File, just enter the file name for saving that particular trace.
Then you can review the data from Options | Display Tuning File, which prompts you to specify which tuning file you wish to view.
The time from the beginning of the file is marked across the graph in seconds.

The interface is very crude at the moment (that is, there is no slider bar); just move around through the arrow, paging, home, and end keys.

Home - beginning of file; End - end of file;
Left - back one screen width; Right - forward one screen width;
Up - back 1/4 screen width; Down - forward 1/4 screen width;
Shift/Up - back 1/16 screen width; Shift/Down - forward 1/16 screen width;
Ctrl/Up - back 1 pixel; Ctrl/Down - forward 1 pixel;
Page Up - back 5 screen widths; Page Down - forward 5 screen widths;
Shift/Page Up - back 25 screen widths; Shift/Page Down - forward 25 screen widths;

Currently the Range, Temperament and other parameters are those in use when the .tun file is opened; and they can be changed at any time. In the future I might save those parameters when the file data are generated, and return to them when the file is first opened. In any event they are independent of the data saved, just pitch and volume on a pixel-by-pixel basis. To understand this from another point of view, the information saved is bound to the original Trace Speed and will always be displayed in the same manner as the original recorded pitch data.
