ChromaGraph Operating Instructions
To Start CHROMAGRAPH
- Turn on Chroma.
- Put CHROMAGRAPH disk in drive one.
- Turn on Computer.
Computer will ask if you want a color or a hi-resolution display.
- Press either 0 (color) or 1 (hi-res).
Wait for the program to load. If Chroma is not connected properly, a message will appear on the screen.
Screen will display Chroma "patch 0," that is, the current voice.
To Change Voices
Simply select new voice on Chroma as normal.
To Edit a Voice
Make parameter changes as normal. These changes will be displayed on the screen.
If some parameters of a patch have no effect on the voice, (eg. envelope 2B, or glide A, or sweep B, etc.) they will not be displayed on the screen. If edits are made to a voice that uses these parameters, they will still not be displayed. Pressing the space bar on the Apple ][ will "re-evaluate" the patch, and update the screen to include these parameters.
changing panel data (eg. transpose, link mode, etc.) will not change the screen (it can be seen on the panel). The screen can be updated however by pressing the space bar on the Apple ][.
ChromaGraph is designed to run on Apple ][+ and Apple ][e computers using the Chroma/Apple interface card (model 1611 by CBS Inc.) in slot 5, and the disk drive controller card in slot 6. Make sure that these cards are in the correct slots, or ChromaGraph will NOT work.
Color and hi-resolution monochrome monitors are supported by ChromaGraph. Using a TV through an rf modulator may not give a sharp enough display. You may switch display modes at any time by pressing 0 (color) or 1 (hi-res) on the Apple ][.
