Keyboard Shortcuts?

Postby Daniel » Sat Aug 25, 2007 9:50 pm

Perhaps I'm missing something documentation-wise. I can't seem to find an up-to-date listing of the keyboard shortcut mappings for "guitar keys" versus "piano keys." Furthermore, once I've selected "custom keys," it seems to remain on when switching back to the former selections. The icons on the website don't seem to correspond with the solfege sound-a-likes in my version of the software either.

Is there a critical update read me somewhere that I should refer to?

Wonderful to have discovered these programs/tools. Thanks!

I'll check the "custom keys" bug you're describing. The documentation is woefully out of date; when I've had time to work on this stuff I've generally written more on the main page or written new programming (lately, more the former than the latter).

Piano keys are as indicated on this page. I don't immediately recall the guitar keys but I'll dig them out from somewhere.

Settled on a custom set of keys for Interval Loader

Postby Daniel » Thu Aug 30, 2007 6:32 pm

Ok, thanks Chris. For now I came up with a custom set to use. As a touch typist (numbers and symbols too) that feels most comfortable with fingers on the "qwerty" keyboard home keys of "asdf" and "jkl;", I decided to adopt the following rules...

1. White keys correspond to "asdf jkl;"
2. Where a "black" note exists a half step below another note, I add that to the key above the home keyboard key I'm talking about.

This means that the following...

Code: Select all

    w    e                   u    i    o   
a    s    d    f              j    k    l    ;   


Corresponds to the following...

Code: Select all

    Db   Eb                  Gb   Ab   Bb
C    D    E    F              G    A    B    C


Which among other possibilities, also corresponds to...

Code: Select all

    C#   D#                  F#   G#   A#
C    D    E    F              G    A    B    C


We'll see how that works out for me.

Thanks again,
Daniel

Uh, not sure how things progress in the game. Here's one of the many intervallic expression of the same...

Code: Select all

    m2   m3                  d5   m6   m7
Uni  M2   M3   P4             P5   M6   M7   Oct

I don't know the guitar keys, but I couldn't help but notice that your custom keys seem to work a lot like the "piano" keys, the only main difference being placement of C on the space bar. In other words, it's a touch-typist's setup. [white notes go along the middle row, black notes above...]

Certainly similar now that I look at. Not that it matters that much, but I went with the C on the 'a' and ';' keys whereas if I understand correctly, the piano keys layout puts F on the 'a' key.

(For the record, my primary musical pursuit is jazz guitar.)
