Orinj version 4.0.0
Use this view is to record audio tracks and mix them into a single song. The following are examples of what you can do in this view.
- Select the sampling resolution and sampling rate of your recording session.
- Record a single audio track or several audio tracks at once. Each track can use a separate audio device for its input signal. Recording can start from the beginning of the track or in the middle. Tracks that already have audio data (previous recordings) will be played during recording so that you can listen to these while recording.
- Insert wave files or MIDI files that were recorded in other sessions or with other software.
- Insert loop files built with Orinj (see below).
- Move, remove, mute, and cut wave files, MIDI files, or loops, or loop these files (i.e., repeat them multiple times in the same track).
- Control the volume and pan of each track in the mix. Mute, solo (i.e., mute all other tracks), move, and rename tracks.
- Add effects to each tracks, such as delays, equalizers, reverb, compressors, noise gates, notch filters, pitch shifts, and other. Remove, modify, or bypass added effects. Apply effects to the whole track or to portions of the track. Change the dry and wet mix of selected effects for the whole track or for portions of the track. Compute effects during playback or "process" the effects, permanently embedding them in the audio files.
- Zoom in and out of your session or make selections and zoom into these selections.
- Play the whole song or a portion of the song. Pause, stop, fast forward, rewind, and loop playback. Mix all recorded audio data into one single musical piece.
- Add, move, and remove markers with comments about your session.
Use this view is to work with a single wave file. The following are examples of what you can do in this view.
- Open one or more wave files, independently of whether these are used in your session.
- Modify the audio format of wave files. See Orinj Audio formats.
- Add effects to the wave files, such as echoes, delays, equalizers, reverb, compressors, and other. Remove, modify, or bypass added effects and apply them to the whole wave file or to portions of it. Change the dry and wet mix of selected effects. Compute effects during playback or "process" them to embed the permanently in the wave file.
- Zoom in and out along the time line.
- Play the wave, stop, pause, rewind, fast forward, play only what is visible on the screen, or play a portion of the wave in a loop.
- Reverse, stretch, or pitch shift waves.
- Change the meta properties of waves (e.g., the name of the author).
- Examine the frequency content of waves.
- Generate special types of waves, such as square waves or saw waves.
If you use this view to change a wave that is a part of your multitrack session, the changes will be included in the session.
Use this view is to create drum loops from short wave drum samples. The following are examples of what you can do in this view.
- Select samples to use. Orinj comes with a complete set of drum samples (see Orinj Installation files). This set contains various drum hits for most common drum instruments, such as the kick, snare, high hat, ride, crashes, bongos, etc. All files are organized in a folder of the Orinj installation. Add other samples to Orinj by simply copying such samples to the same folder, in whatever subfolders you deem fit.
- Build loops by pulling samples into tacks and adding drum hits that specify which samples should be used and when. Add, remove, or move drum hits.
- Use existing loops. Orinj comes with a set of pre-created loops that you can use or modify.
- Change tempo and time signature or drum loops. Drum loops can be imported into the multitrack session and you can adjust their tempo and time signature to be consistent with the session.
- Adjust volume and pan, mute and solo tracks, reorder tracks, add effects, and mix the loop into a single audio file.
If you use this view to change a loop that is a part of your session, the changes will be included in your session.
Use this view to create and modify MIDI files. The following are examples of what you can do in this view.
- Test MIDI sounds with the MIDI roll, which contains a piano that works as a synthesizer.
- Build MIDI files by adding, changing and removing notes, instruments, and controllers (volume, pan, pitch, time signature, tempo, and key signature). A separate wave track at the bottom of the view helps in creating MIDI files that are consistent (e.g., tempo and time signature) with any wave that is opened.
- Zoom in and out along the time line or along the piano roll.
- Play, stop, pause, rewind, and fast forward your file.
- Record or convert the MIDI file to a wave file that can then be imported in the multitrack session to become a part of the song.
If you use this view to change a MIDI file that is a part of your session, the changes will be included in your session.
