Controls

Metronome toggle

Toggles the metronome on/off.

When the metronome is enabled, you will hear metronome ticks during playback at each bar and each beat. The tick at each bar will be more emphasized. This feature is useful for making sure the song stays on beat.

Tips

The metronome samples can be overridden by placing your own samples in your Zrythm directory. This is a TODO feature.

Metronome options

Sets the volume of the metronome

Återvänd till spelhuvudets startpunkt vid stopp

Toggles whether to return to the Cue Point when playback stops.

Spela in

Arms the project for recording.

Record options

Sets the settings to use when recording.

Spela

If stopped, the song will start playing. If already playing, the Playhead will move to the Cue point.

Stopp

Pauses playback. If clicked twice, goes back to the Cue point.

Spola bakåt

Moves the Playhead backward by the size of 1 snap point.

Spola framåt

Moves the Playhead forward by the size of 1 snap point.

Loopa

If enabled, the Playhead will move back to the Loop Start point when it reaches the Loop End point.

Playhead Display

The playhead position can be displayed in either BBT notation (bars.beats.sixteenths.ticks) or actual time (mm:ss.ms). This can be toggled by right-clicking on the playhead position display.

Zrythm can sync to JACK transport or become the JACK transport master. These options are available by right-clicking the playhead position display when using the JACK audio backend and will be remembered across projects.
