Fluctus Editor Style View



Grid Unit

Fluctus Project Grid Unit

Sets the Grid Unit for the project.

The Samples option sets the Grid to a number (see Size) of audio samples.

The Milliseconds option sets the Grid to a number (see Size) of milliseconds.

The BPM option sets the Grid in accordance to the project's Tempo and Beats Per Bar.

Also see, Time Ruler, Snap to Grid and Metronome.



Grid Size

Fluctus Project Grid Size

Sets the Grid Size relative to the project's Grid Unit.

For example, if we set the Grid Size to 1000 units and the Grid Unit to Milliseconds, the Ruler tick marks are 1000ms apart (1 second).

Also see, Time Ruler, Snap to Grid and Metronome.



Grid Offset

Fluctus Project Grid Offset

Sets the Grid Offset for the project.

This option shifts the zero/start point for the grid by its value in milliseconds.

For example, if we set the Grid Unit to Milliseconds and the Grid Size to 100, an offset of 400ms will look like:

Tempo

Fluctus Project Tempo

The tempo is the speed measured in BPM, or Beats Per Minute. 60 BPM is one beat every second.

Beats Per Bar

Fluctus Project Beats Per Bar

The Beats Per Bar sets the number of Beats in a Bar.

If we set the value to 4, each bar will be composed of four beats.

For example, 1 Beat Per Bar will look like:

BpB 1

4 Beats Per Bar will look like:

BpB 4

Also see Tempo, Grid Offset and Metronome State.
