|Tuareg mode :
For those who use Tuareg 2 in registered mode, you can launch VstSeq from TU2 as a plugin.
VstSeq is opened with the actual TU2 tempo.
The internal state of VstSeq (loaded VSTIs, pattern sequencer settings...) is saved in the Tuareg song.
Render the pattern to wav file back in Tu2.
|Standalone mode :
For those who use Tuareg 2 in freeware mode, you can launch VstSeq as a standalone program.
Load ans save your project files.
Render your patterns to wav files (for example, in the Tuareg samples folder, so you can load them quickly into Tu2).
When you render to wave, the beginning of the wave file can be delayed by a certain amount of time. You can compensate this by setting the "render to wave adjust" parameter in the "Option/Devices" dialog window. Since version 0.9c, you probably have to set it to 0 (in the older versions, a value of 1 was a better choice).
