2 newby questions
« on: 05. September 2016, 00:39:06 »
Hello
I have just started trying to use GO but have encountered two problems:
1 the console  window is very small, so I can barely read it, and it does not respond to normal actions to enlarge it
2 the volume is very low and, again, I can't find any way to increase it.
Ideas?

1) The maximum window size is determined by the sampleset [What is your sampleset and what your screen resolution?].
2) Look in the toolbar for the volume control.

Thanks
I am using just the demo v1 organ which downloaded automatically with the software
My screen resolution is 2736x1824, which is the Microsoft Surface recommended setting (and which works fine with all other apps i have used!)

The demo organ size is limited to 1007x663.

Another two questions - when I try to link the manuals to my keyboard, any note I touch with my mouse sticks
(or cyphers) and can't be turned off! Why?
Also, the detect MIDI event does not function, so I have been unable to connect the keyboard at all.

Add 1) Click a second time on the key.
Add 2) First check, that your MIDI interface is enabled in the MIDI device list in the GO audio/midi settings.
Enable the MIDI logging in GO menu to check, that GO receives MIDI events - a MIDI keyboard should send 9x note events.
Right-click on the manual, "listen for events", press a MIDI keyboard key and GO should fill all values. Then press OK and it should work (manual keys move during playing).

Some keyboards (or also cheap USB-MIDI interfaces) inhibit a strange behaviour. In that case, please post the MIDI logging produced by GO while pressing/releasing a key as well as the detected MIDI settings.

So if the demo organ is limited in size, what do I do to move to a proper full size system?

You can used the free screen space for any of the additional GO panels (sequencers, ...).

Look at the samplesets http://piotrgrabowski.pl/ - they have totally different panel sizes as the GO demo set.

Thank you - I am now making good progress and am enjoying trying out some trial sample sets.

I am still puzzled, however, that the demo console is so very small. It makes it almost impossible to use the toolbar - or the combination buttons without risk of pressing the wrong control! Is there really no way to expand it?

You can to modify the sampleset (adding stop images, changing coordinates/sizes/..):

The ODF reference is part of the help.

Thanks for the reply but I don't see how this helps make the console window larger!

This allows you to define a different console size.

Thank you.
I have looked at these links but I don't understand what I need to do with them to make the windows larger!
