This function on the main toolbar unloads all the plugins belonging to the parasite. Not only does it turn them off but actually removes them from the memory. It can be useful if you work with a plugin of which only one instance can be loaded. If you click on the button again, the plugin will reload preserving all its settings and mappings. In case of unloaded plugins, record is not possible.
You can turn on/off the keyboard splitting already mentioned in the sequence blocks chapter by means of the <ctrl+k> button. If you turn it on, the sequence blocks are mapped on the notes starting from the key specified in the seq. block keyb. Using it, you can trigger the sequence blocks by one hand, and play the accords that give the sequence block notes by the other hand. This way complex sequences can be controlled in the course of live play even on stage.
By turning on the follow song option <ctrl+f>, you can avoid the play locator ever leaving the visible segment of the screen, i.e. the contents of the screen will continuously keep up with what is being played.
Synchronize to host / Start host play
In case of the setting of the host trigger modes already mentioned in the Settings menu and turning on the <ctrl+a> keys on the main toolbar, on the PP interface the play and stop buttons will trigger the launching and stopping of the host. PP always runs synchronized with the host; if the host plays, PP will also have the play mode – we cannot influence this. Nonetheless, for the sake of convenience, it may be important that the play of the host can be launched from PP from a specific time. To achieve this, you can use either of the two settings described in ’synchronize’. Thus, what happens is that you signal to the host to start play, and then PP is automatically synchronized.
Play, record, play locator
Play can be launched and stopped by the <space> key. Play starts from the play locator, which will be set to the current cursor position by pressing <ctrl+p>.
