Comments Tab

The Comments tab contains a song comment text (not available in all module formats) and sample / instrument information. In the text box at the top, you can put in comments or notes for the module. The font size of this text box can be modified in the Display page of the Options dialog.

The bottom half of the page lists the samples or instruments (depending on the icon chosen) that are used in this track, sorted according to their slot number. In the sample view, the samples are shown with their waveform lengths, bit depth, the frequency at middle C, the instrument(s) the sample is assigned to, and the text listed in the File Name field on the Samples page. If the sample has been loaded to or saved from a file during the current editing session, or if it is an external sample in an MPTM file, its file path is also shown.
In the instrument view, the sample numbers and envelopes are listed that each instrument uses, the File Name text is shown, and plugins are listed if the instrument is assigned to a plugin.

You can interact with the view in several ways. First of all, you can resize the column widths by sliding the column separators in the header. Double-clicking on the separator will resize the column to fit all of the text of the entries. You can edit the Name fields by slowly clicking twice on the sample’s/instrument’s label, while double-clicking will open the sample/instrument to that slot on their respective pages.
