SASLab Manual

Synthesizer window : File

New A new (empty) arrangement is generated.

Open... A previously saved arrangement file (.ARR) is loaded. Alternatively, .ARR files can also be opened by drag & drop into either the SASLab Pro main window or into the Graphic Synthesizer window.

Save The current arrangement is saved under the current name.

Save as... The current arrangement is saved under a new name. The arrangement is saved in several files. The main file *.arr contains general information on the parameters used. Depending on the active parameters additional ASCII-files containing the data points are written. Each of these files consists of two columns. The first column represents the time in seconds, the second one represents the Y-values of the parameters in Hz, V, dB or %. These ASCII-files can be easily imported into spreadsheet applications (Excel) The extensions of the files depends on the type of parameter (ft, at, a1t, a2t, ... , a7t, fmt, fht, amt, aht; see Setup)

Insert The current arrangement will be synthesized and inserted into the main window. Insertion takes place at the current insertion position (left margin of the marker).

Save into WAV file The current arrangement will be synthesized and saved into a WAV file. The sampling rate for this file can be set from File/Sampling rate settings…

Sampling rate settings… This dialog box allows defining the sampling rate of newly generated sound files. The option in the Sound Card Settings will take the currently selected sampling frequency from the main window menu File > Sound Card Settings…. The alternative option here will take the sampling frequency specified in the combo box behind.

Open last arrangement on start If this option is activated, the previous arrangement used at the last session will be loaded each time the Graphic Synthesizer is started.
