Program Overview

Editor Variants

There's several variants of DigaSystem Audio Editors:

  • MultiTrack Editor, abbreviated MTE
  • EasyTrack Editor, abbreviated ETE
  • SingleTrack Editor, abbreviated STE

These variants appear as so-called "screens" in the program. There's additional screens for special workflows:

  • Reporter Box, abbreviated RBS
  • Record Mode, abbreviated RMS

In each program's user interface most items are common to all these editors. Differences will be explained where they occur.

Layouts and Docking Mechanism

Toolbars and all so-called panes are dockable and can be moved by the mouse. Click on its drag handle or caption bar and move a bit to undock and make it floating, then drag it to another location and drop to leave it there. For docking, move it near a window border and follow the provided options.

The inner edges of panes can be dragged for resizing.

Panes provide a close button (little "x" on the right of its pane), which hides it. All of them can be shown again by an item in the main menu's "View" entry.

The complete layout is being stored individually for each DigaSystem user and individually for each editor screen. When you switch between editor screens, the particular layouts will be restored. This applies also after closing and re-opening the audio editor.
