Quick Channel Settings dialog

Middle-clicking or Ctrl-right-clicking a channel header (the boxes that hold the channel names and VU meters) in the Pattern Editor brings up the quick channel setings, where a channel’s basic settings can be adjusted without having to go back to the General Tab. The dialog is floating on top of the pattern editor and can be closed by clicking the pattern editor again.

  • Channel Name: The edit box at the top of the dialog is used to edit the channel name.
  • Previous / Next Channel: Next to the channel name are two arrow buttons for switching to the previous or next channel.
  • Initial Volume: Depending on the current module format’s capabilities, you can adjust the channel’s initial volume here and toggle the mute status.
  • Initial Pan: Depending on the current module format’s capabilities, you can adjust the channel’s initial panning position and surround status here.

The channel plugin assignment can be edited directly from the pattern editor and is thus not available from this dialog.
