Scale Mask Tab
See Setting Equalizer for common recommendations on how to choose Equalizer settings.
Scale Mask tab allows to set up the mask that controls sensitivity to a particular degree of scale. Final mask is calculated by multiplying pitch sensitivity to corresponding degree scale sensitivity, so applying this mask requires information about tonality. The purpose of Scale Mask is to remove all notes that appears rarely in a particular tonality.
Mask area allows to set up sensitivity to a particular degree of scale. Left-click on the area adjusts corresponding bar heights.
Apply Scale Mask list allows to select one of the pre-defined masks. Chromatic mask applies flat mask that is equivalent to not using Scale Mask at all. Choosing major or minor mask automatically switches tonality to major or minor respectively.
Key selects the first degree to apply the mask from. Correct degrees are displayed with bold above the mask area, M for major tonalities and m for minor ones. Masks for minor and major tonalities are shifted against each other so that you can see degrees for both parallel tonalities together.
Use Recognized Key allows to get tonality information from Composition Analysis algorithm during the recognition process. If no tonality was detected automatically (tonality detection was not enabled in recognition settings or detection failed), manually set tonality is used.
Note: Use recognized key checkbox does not control whether the tonality analysis will be actually performed. If tonality is not detected automatically, Use recognized key control does not take any effect. To turn on tonality analysis, use a checkbox in the MIDI Options tab of Recognition Settings dialog. Note that setting Use recognized key and turning on tonality analysis will force WIDI to perform recognition twice - first time to determine the tonality and second time to produce final notes. See How WIDI Works for more comprehensive description.
