An Editing Session Example
Let us focus on Style copying, which is the most tedious operation when undertaken
on the Workstation.
Suupose we want to replace, in MYNEWSET.STY, Style C42 Latin Pop
3 by Style C13 Acid Funk extracted from MYOLDSET.STY. How
can we achieve this with i30 File Editor?
- We open MYNEWSET.SET, then select Style tab (if not
- We open MYOLDSET.SET (Note that Style tab is already
If both windows overlap, we separate them (either with the mouse, or by clicking
Tile in the Window menu).
- We drag Style cell C13 Acid Funk from MYOLDSET
window and drop it onto cell C42 Latin Pop 3 of
We get message: "Acid Funk DRUMS track calls Program Acid Drum non-existent
in MYNEWSET. Redirect to another Program?"
- We click Yes, then select R31 GM Kit 3.
A new message appears: "Acid Funk BASS track calls Program Acid Slap
non-existent in MYNEWSET. Redirect to another Program?"
- We click Yes, then select F75 Slap Bass 4.
Of course, if we canít find, in MYNEWSET, satisfactory Programs as
replacements for Acid Drum and/or Acid Slap, we should answer
Cancel (which would abort the copying process) and take care
of Programs before attempting transferring the Style again.
Note: By double-clicking Style cell C13 Acid Funk, we
could have foreseen this potential problem!
So, letís try to copy Program R57 Acid Drum from MYOLDSET to
- We select Programs tabs and R Banks in both
- By looking at Programs grid in the MYNEWSET window, we can immediately
see that, although there are no empty cells (not named, dark background),
some Drum Kits are not called by any Item (blue inked characters),
such as R54 User Kit 4 in our example.
So we just have to drag R57 Acid Drum cell from
MYOLDSET and drop it into R54 cell in MYNEWSET.
- We repeat the same process for copying Acid Slap into an unused Program
cell in MYNEWSET.
- Now we can resume copying Style C13 Acid Funk (5 first steps above).
i30 File Editor finds that all Programs called by
the copied Style exist somewhere in MYNEWSET and fixes Calls References
We can verify the result by double-clicking C42 Acid Funk in
Note 1: Safety of the above-described process supposes uniqueness of
Items Names. Thatís the reason why, all along the editing session, i30 File Editor
warns the User if it detects duplicate Names in Arrangements, Styles and Programs
that belong to an open Set. A good idea is to change the Names of recently pasted
Items as soon as possible.
Note 2: The above-described tasks are even easier with a listing of
the initial configuration of each Set involved in the editing process, available
with the various Report commands in i30 File Editor
