Well, i've been looking at it a bit.

You should read http://psycle.sourceforge.net/wiki/Features
and add some of them to the features.

Another thing i'd change is the explanation of how new mcm funcionality (by bohan) works. I'd put it in another place or remove it from history of changes...

That's my oppinion for now...

mmmm, maybe you could add a version or revision number to the manual.

...more things. We should add a FAQ section. We can copy from the wiki to start.

hey sampler, i've explained the NEW mcm functionality in the proper section - it's not just in the history of changes....it's in Pattern Editor > Mcm command i think

Then i'd put a link to it in the history of changes instead of the explanation. But this is no important.

How about the other things?

1. References "connected" and "Master Machine" link to nothing on page "Machine Types".

2. References "Generators and Effects" and "properties" link to nothing on page "Gear Rack". "...is the Wave Editor {Make Link} button" - the same page.

3. "... to appear in.

{INSERT IMAGE}

Then, to record, press ...
" - "Recording in real-time" page.

4. there's no page about presets dialog.

5. Reference "wire dialogue" links to nothing on page "Global Commands".

  mcm command for native machines        Go on top to this Page

mcm command for native machines:

if the machine is not a vst, and if the note is a "mcm" (hmm, poor name if it's not related with midi),
then, the fields in the event are interpreted as <voice> <machine> <command>.
for example, 112233333, means:
11 is the voice,
22 is the machine,
3333 is the command.

The voice number being 11, the command affects notes that were triggered on the same voice, that is, with the classic tracking way, notes that were entered on the track 11 (that is 17 in decimal)

The voice number 0xff is special and send the same command to all voices.

(internally the player calls the Machine::Tick function with the given values, and the instrument value set to 0.)

(PS: corrected)

  mcm command for vst machines        Go on top to this Page

mcm command for vst machines:

mcm is not limited to midi CC (Continuous Controllers) messages. in other words, the first field isn't a CC number but "simply" a raw byte...

i'm afraid the only general definition we can give is

mcm <midi-status-byte> <machine> <midi-data-byte-1><midi-data-byte-2>

and let the user refer to the midi standard, like http://www.borg.com/~jglatt/tech/midispec.htm, and/or the manual of his vst.

Many messages affect a specific channel number, and in this case, the status-byte is splitted into two nibbles (4 bits), where the low nibble (the hexadecimal digit at the right), is the channel number.

Note: a "byte" in midi is only 7 bits, so, acceptable range is only 0 to 7f (in hexadecimal) for data bytes, and for a godam reason, 80 to ff for the status byte.

Sartorius, all the errors you found have been fixed. The mcm explanation has been fixed as well.

This is how mcm works for natives:

mcm <voice number> <machine number> <pattern command>

Note that the voice number is the track number of the machine you are trying to influence, and that the pattern command is one of the note-on type commands that apply to that particular machine e.g. 0Cxx

on wave editor i think you should explain better how to set a loop!

to add a loop point:

ctrl+left click (start point) and ctrl+right click (end point)

edit: thanks to JosepMa for the explanation!
