Orinj version 4.0.0
Each track in the loop building view is equipped with a track control panel. The panel resides to the left of the track and allows various operations on the track. The following is the track control panel.
The track title is at the top of the track control panel (e.g., "Track 1" in the picture above). To change the track title, type a new one here. The track titles help you to organize your loop. For example, you can enter "Kick drum".
Use the volume control () to change the volume of the track in the loop mix. Either type the new volume directly in the control or click on the control. If you click on the control, you will get the following dialog.
Use either the text box in this dialog or the slider. The two controls work together. If the value of one of them changes, the value of the other one will change as well. It is usually easier to use the slider for larger changes and the text box for more precise changes. Change the volume in the dialog and close the dialog when you are done.
(Tip: You can also click on Track and then on Volume in the loop building menu to get the same volume dialog above.)
Use the pan control () to change the pan of the track in the loop mix. Either type the new pan directly in the control or click on the control. If you click on the control, you will get the following dialog.
As with the volume dialog above, the text box and slider of the pan dialog work together. Use the dialog to change the pan and close it when you are done.
(Tip: You can also click on Track and then on Pan in the loop building menu to get the same pan dialog above.)
Use the Add button () to add hits to a track. Press with the mouse on the button and drag the button to the track, to the place where you want to add the hit. Release the mouse to add the hit. You can move hits after then have been added.
Click on the Remove button () to remove the current hit from the track. The current hit is the one that appears lighter in color.
Use the mute button () to mute a track. You will not hear the muted track during playback.
(Tip: You can also click on Track and then on Mute in the loop building menu to mute the current track.)
Use the solo button () to solo a track. When a track is soloed, all other tracks become muted and will not be heard during playback, unless soloed as well.
(Tip: You can also click on Track and then on Solo in the loop building menu to solo the current track.)
Dry and wet mix controls and other effect controls
The effect controls described here are described in more detail in the topic Orinj Effects.
The dry mix controls () change the dry mix of an effect. The wet mix controls () change the wet mix of an effect. The dry and wet mix controls apply only to certain effects. These controls may be disabled (grayed out) if the track has no effects of if the effect that is selected does not have a dry/wet mix. The drop-down box () shows the current effect. The modify effect button () allows you to modify the parameters of the current effect.
