Sound Card Random / Step Timing Dialog
If Wave is set to one of the Noise types, then the Tone Frequency button changes to Smooth TC and the associated control is a mirror of that in the Timing dialog. You can change that value directly, or hit the button to bring up the complete Timing dialog.
The Timing dialog allows you to step through the random values slowly, smooth them, quantize them, make them track another Noise source, or create sources that are shifted in time. You can modulate the number of levels or the bias of the quantization, and you can modulate the relative time shift of tracking sources.
The upper "radio button" control in the Timing dialog selects one of 3 timing modes. In Slow or Step modes the control immediately below sets the Slow Factor or Step Size and is labeled accordingly. That control has no effect in Spec mode.
Quant, Bias, and Shift are essentially edit-type controls that have their labels on pushbuttons. For most applications you can just ignore the buttons, and use the edit portion of each control normally. Pressing the button opens a dialog to enable modulation of the parameter for special cases.
This same command opens the Tone Frequency Dialog if the Wave type is repetitive.
Note that you do not need to open this dialog to change any of its controls directly via macro command. You can even change those controls when the Wave is repetitive and this dialog can't be opened, though such changes will produce no effect until the Wave is changed to a non-repetitive type.
