sg version 0.1



sg is an audio sample generation / synthesis tool. use it to make audio samples for demos and intros or just for fun. sg saves samples to an easy xml format which you can even process with your own tools. this is version 0.1 of sg. since the version is less than 1.0 it means this is a test version. it's not done and may hurt you. like emotionally or something

load a sample

download with the link above, extract to some directory, and then run sg.exe. click on the big load button and select one of the included sample files. on the right you should now see a bunch of nodes. click on any node and press S on the keyboard to view and hear the data at that node. click on the lowest node in the vertical chain and hit S to view and hear the final sample.

working with nodes

nodes can be moved by dragging them with the mouse. they can also be resized by dragging the resizing bar on the right of any node. to create a new node, right click and select a node type. when a node is selected, its properties are displayed in the lower left. special load and save nodes can be used for complicated audio samples. use a save node to make a copy of the current sample data then use that in any number of load nodes. just give them all the same name.

changing properties

properties are manipulated with a variety of controls. most are displayed with spinner controls. these look like boxes with a number in the center. to change the value, click and hold on the spinner then drag the mouse up or down. when a spinner has focus you can also use the keyboard arrow keys to fine tune the value.
