Configuring the instruments view

Subjects covered:

Why modifying the instruments view? [Professional] [Composition Pro]

In this lesson, we will learn how to personalize the aspect of the instruments view. We had seen that it has several aspects that one can reach via his configurations menu.

The objective here is to be able to establish a new configuration which will be added to the others and which will cuts your preference in your work with Pizzicato. Perhaps the way in which we presented this window will not be optimal for you, because as soon as one starts to know a software, one works according to his own practices.

Perhaps a user would like to have a display which shows at the same time the name, the synthesizer , the instruments family, the instrument and the sound volume, the whole in a unique display. The continuation of this lesson explains you how to execute that.

The instruments view configuration dialog box [Professional] [Composition Pro]

The left list shows the names of the existing configurations. According to the Pizzicato version you have, there may be others than the one visible here above. The first is selected. To the right, you have the list of the elements contained in the selected configuration, in the order where they appear. To see the contents of another configuration, click on its name in the left list and the contents appears in other list.

A new configuration appears after the selected one. The text box below the list is used to give it a name. Replace the three dashes with My configuration. The right list is empty because this new configuration does not yet any element to display.

It is a Short name , i.e. it lets you see or modify the short name of a staff. It is usually the first element in a configuration, used to locate the staves.

The controllers can also be visualized with a text box or a menu.

Our configuration is ready. Click OK. In the instruments view, click on the top left icon and select the My configuration item which was added in it. You can then contemplate the configuration just created:

Erase My configuration in order to return to the situation you had before this lesson. Click OK to confirm the operation.

You are now able create your instruments view displays. Observe your working method and create one or more personal configurations which contain an effective setup of these elements.
