I got some questions today about how to patch a VCA and an attenuverter .. and they wanted to know about sends and returns to a main mixer too.

I made a patch with some comments in it to demonstrate things, here is the image - will upload the patch itself too.

Click on the image to see a larger version.

When you want to run multiple Wrens, the best way to do that would be to make a copy of wren.exe and of wren.ini and keep the copies in the same folder, they will initially run with the same settings then.

In the Settings screen you can a) set a name for the wren instance and b) make that name visible in the in the program's title bar - so you could tell one from the other.

Having two running copies could be handy for templates, copy a bunch of modules in one and paste'm into the other. The clipboard format is plain text, so you can copy parts of a patch to a new patch file too that way trough a text editor. But you can also open a patch, copy a couple of modules from it, re-open the old one and paste the modules there.

Every module can have presets, you can save and load presets from the file menu. It would be best to use a descriptive name, as you can not paste presets from one module type to another. Modules with graphs on them can save the graph seperate from te module, right click on a graph, and select Save to file, or load from file.

Before using this it might be a good idea to make a dedicated presets and or graphs folder. In the next Wren release there will be a Folder Setup screen where you can set a dedicated presets folder (and one for graphs, patches, recordings, what have you ... ).

Tip: to copy values from one module to another of the same type use ctrl+c to copy the module and use ctrl+e to paste only the values (or use Paste values from the edit menu).

You can make two dedicated template files for cases where you seem to end up with doing the same stuff again and again when creating a new patch, just put those modules into an empty patch and use save patch as template from the file menu. Opening a template file will inject the modules from the template into the current patch.

There is another special file which will be used to create new files from, so when you have a standard setup with, say, an output module, a volume control, a mixer a clock module or whatever, you can make that patch and save it from the file menu with Save as patch template new ... now every time you start a new patch that template will be loaded into that new patch.

Oh and wires, you do not need to run wires from output to input all the time, you can chain wires over inputs .. so .. from module1.out -> module2.in -> module3.in etc. To see where a wire goes double click a connector and hold, it will be highlighted then. Ctrl+w will turn wires on/off and the wires up.down control nect to the res button in the top toolbar will set the wire thickness.

To change a module name, double click on it or ctrl+left click, other text fields will initially show ctrl+click me to give a hint ...

Then .. ctrl+h for the patch history, all your knob movements will be recorded there, and you can selectively undo those (the regular undo / redo mechanism keeps track if structural changes only, not of parameter changes). When you click on a line in the edit history the affected module will light up it's title field. When you double click it the undo process will happen, and that will be recorded as the latest history item .. so to redo .. double click the top line in the history.
