On the chinatown bus back from philly (which I was *very* lucky to catch) I moved all of the configurable options for the trackpad synth from compile-time to command-line specification. They are:
-k [KEY] Play in the given key. Allowable keys are 'A'-'G' followed by an optional '#' or 'b'. Default is D. -h Harmonic minor mode -r Relative minor mode -x Mixolidian mode -K A Klezmer mode (flat 2, sharp 6) -S Send SKINI to stdout instead of MIDI from a virtual source. -V Use the far left of the controller as a volume control. -o [N] Divide the trackpad vertically into this many octaves. Default is 5. -s [N] Octave Shift: how far down to shift from the top of our range. Default is 3. -v Use velocity. When pressing keys, set midi velocity to the finger width detected on the trackpad. -a Send aftertouch midi messages based on how fat each finger is -c [N] Send on channel N. Default is 3. -p Send channel pressure messages based on how fat all the fingers are on average, -P Fake channel pressure using volume instead.
