The JingleWin icon is a button to start a new instance (copy) of JingleWin or to show a hidden one
Two counters with the current time and the total time of the played file (in 1/100 seconds)
A button to start or display an instance.
Three standard Window's buttons to minimize, call help and to exit JingleWin.
Note that the exit button hides the instance without exiting. To show a hidden instance, just press the create/display JingleWin icon.
Two sliders one for the speed from x0.1 to x3, and the second for volume. The setting of each is displayed.
Under the top blue line, you can see the current played key and the associated filename.
The group up/down selector is used to specify the group number of the instance. Instances in the same group are controlled as one by the one keyboard command. By default, each instance as its own group number ie they are independent of each other.
The Tools button (far right) opens/closes the window with the play (set) editor, the options available for the main instance, the video window and the print preview of the current set of defined keys.
The next block contains the play and stop buttons, a button to open the mini player (to play a file without associating it with a key).
Three options: ' Loop' to repeat a file when the end of a file is reached (if sustain is checked or a key is held down), ' Sustain' to play the file to the end even if the key is released, and the ' Midi In' to activate/deactivate the midi input device (configured in the Tools/Options window).
Three LCD counters with the min, max and current positions of the file being played (range 0 to 10000 ).
The block just above the keyboard has three moveable sliders: the min and max sliders to specify a range for the current key, and the position indicator.
The keyboard with 36 keys (3 Octaves). If an external midi keyboard is used, octaves out of range will be remapped on to these three octaves).
Moving the interface:
To move the window around the screen, simply click and hold the blue bar with the mouse. When moved by the grey body of the window, the window is docked to the edge of the screen or with another instance. If instances are docked, they are moved together.
All windows sizes and positions and all options are saved in Window's registry and recalled at the next program start.
All instances can be minimized to save space. When minimized, they still respond to the computer keyboard and the external midi keyboard.
When multiple instances are opened, the group parameter can be used for group instances to respond to the same key event at the same time. Instances of the same group receive all key and stop events at the same time. If the key of each instance is associated with the same multimedia file, this file is played by each instance with a very small delay producing a reverberation effect. If the key of each instance is associated with different files, each instance plays its own file but starting together so that the output from all files can be mixed.
