What is OFF-LINE/ON LINE editing?

You can use the editor to organize and edit "N" data without "N" connected - to enable this option select "OFF-LINE" from main editor window menu. In this mode data will not be requested from "N", instead will be loaded from hard drive files. "Write" program or combination function will save to the disk instead of "N".

How do I use the Drag and Drop file feature?

You can simply open the editor and Windows File Explorer and drag "N" files form Windows Explorer into the editor. Dragged files will be automatically loaded and their contents displayed. Supported Files:

n23 All data (except Sequencer and Paterns data) files can be dropped into the main editors window or "black list of patches"

Program Bank files can be dropped to "black list of patches" in Program Mode. The data will be loaded into RAM bank A and B. If you drop it into ROM banks the data will automatically moved into bank A and B.  Single programs and Combinations can be dropped into main window or Program Edit and Combi Edit window - depending on a mode the editor is set.

N-EditPro's Library Files (*.npl or *.nlc) can be dropped in Program or Combi Librarians . You can also drop multi-selected files. N-EditPro will filter all of them out. Files already loaded will be omitted.

Can I open editor by clicking on N23 file?

Yes, you can to make N-EditPro the default editor for those files. You can double click on n23 file in Explorer/File manager and file contents will be automatically loaded and displayed. But before you can do that you have to assign n23  files to N_EdPro.exe by associating it with editor. N-EditPro does not write to the Windows registry so you have to associate n23 file manually by double clicking it and selecting "Open with...N_EditPro.exe" or use View/Folder_Option in the Explorer menu to change file associations.

What is "Genetics" feature?

Synth GENETICS window in N-EditPro lets you to generate, mix and mutate patches, creating random or intended 100's of "N" programs at a time. You will be also able to select parameter filters that will help you to get the most desired sounding results. For example, one click of mouse will present you with a choice of hundred versions of pianos, strings, pads and etc. bred from one patch. You can also automatically audit them all or quickly edit. You can apply fine tuned algorithms to get weird, hard to image sounds that you would never thought possible with "N". The GENETICS feature alone makes N-EditPro a treasure program to have. In addition there is the FX Wiz function that applies randomly chosen effects from bank. On top of many benefits of GENETICS module it is possible to use Genetics "Kids" manipulation to edit and change any program parameter in a whole bank.  Combination GENETICS works in a similar way. By selecting corresponding filters you can change all channels and parameters and  have results presented in Kids List.
