Provides a bank of 2-dimensional sliders.

First click on "edits" to open the multiQ/edits-window. This is where you can create sliders.

Press "new", a red square top left will appear on the screen, this is your first multiQ-slider.

"Del" deletes the current selected slider. Change the colors with the color boxes (r-g-b). The number-box next to the color boxes changes the number from black to white. Next to this you can change the size of the square, and the roundness.


Next step is to assign parameters to that slider.

Upper line is horizontal (x-axis), lower line is vertical (y-axis). If the "log"-factor is zero, the scaling is linear. If you tune it up, scaling will become more and more logarithmic.

Now you should be able to move any two parameters with that slider (create as many sliders as you can handle).

At the far left of the edit menu you can change the size of screen. The orange number-boxes show the current position of the slider. The brown boxes next to this shows outputted values (read only).


Alt-clicking on a slider will set it to the bottom of the screen.

Alt-clicking in empty space will bring up a slider that is currently at bottom.

The alt-range defines an upper limit for sliders that will be brought up with the alt-key.

"grid" opens another window, where you can define vertical lines offering some orientation.

grid_width and grid_offset defines the position off the lines, and you could define a pattern with different gray-shades when changing the list in "whiteness". By default it is something like a keyboard.


In the main window:

"GRID" turns grid on/off

"ARR" the arrow-keys of your keyboard will move the selected point, if this is turned on.

ctl-clicking in empty space will jump the (last-) selected slider to that position.

shift-clicking will group/ ungroup sliders.

shift-click on a slider, then on another one. they are now grouped. indicated by a list above the screen.

shift-click on a grouped slider, ungroups it.

(non-shift) clicking in empty space and dragging down-right, will open a frame, all sliders that you touch with that frame will be grouped/ungrouped.


"getback"- if pressed the sliders will update their position, when the according parameter is altered in its native act, this button will turn itself off. when you change addressing (repress it)

It is highly recommended to store your settings in a preset, and save it to disc.
