DIN Is Noise is Free Software.

Press a key to play a note.

Notes of the scale are mapped to keys on the computer keyboard.
Range is 3 octaves.

1st octave: t, r, e, w, q, a, s
2nd octave: d, f, g, h, j, k, l
3rd octave: ;, ', ], [, p, o, i, u

The number of keys used depends on the number of notes in the scale.

z: shift an octave down
x: shift an octave up
F11 & F12 : decrease/increase octave shift bpm

n: decrease attack time
m: increase attack time

,: decrease decay time
.: increase decay time

Delay:

  Click on the Delay button to toggle stereo delay lines.

  See set-delay command to set delay duration
  See delay editor (press 6) to change feedback & volume curves.

Mouse driven pitch bend:

  Dotted vertical line marks the mouse position when the most recent
  note was triggered.

    Move left of dotted line to lower pitch of all active notes
    Move right of dotted line to increase pitch of all active notes
    Place mouse on the dotted line to remove pitch bend on all recent notes

  Mouse driven pitch bend overrides MIDI driven pitch bend.

  If you cant see the dotted line, mouse is out of DIN window. Bring it
  inside and play a note.

Instrument:

  1 : microtonal-keyboard

Editors:

  2 : waveform
  3 : attack
  4 : decay
  5 : velocity (MIDI)
  6 : delay
  7 : octave shift

Edit the attack & decay curves to sculpt the attack & decay of a note.

Set sustain (marked by a blue triangle) on the attack editor. Click once
on the blue triangle, mouse move and click again to drop.

Parameters:

  Now visually edit variables attack_time, decay_time, pitch_bend and
  note_volume.

  Left click on Parameters and mouse move. Left click again to
  drop.

  Left-click on filled button at the left of a parameter slider to edit
  its min/max.

  To operate a parameter slider, left click on slider bar and mouse move
  to change value. Left-click to drop.

Variables:

  attack_time or at : attack time of a note

  sustain or su : start of sustain (specified on attack curve)

  decay_time or dt : decay time of a note

  note_volume : maximum volume of a note

  pitch_bend or pb : pitch bend in Hz

  Use set-var command to set values of these variables:

    set-var at 5 ;# set attack time of note to 5 seconds
    set-var dt 30 ;# set decay time to 30 seconds
    set-var nv 0.25 ;# set max volume of note to 0.25 (silence = 0, max = 1)
    set-var su 0.75 ;# starts sustaining from t = 0.75 to end of attack curve

Console:

  TAB : enter/leave command mode
  up_arrow, down_arrow: navigate command history

  In command mode, type help to reveal available commands. Or type
    help command_name
  to get help for a particular command.

  Insert, Delete: scroll up, down
  PgUp, PgDn: page up, page down
  BACKSPACE : delete all text in console
  ` : rollup/unfurl console
