Trace Panel

Displays various information's like incoming MIDI/network message, internal messages or others important messages of Usine.

  • A dbl-click on this panel will open a standalone window called the console, for advances users.
  • The trace panel will be displayed automatically when Usine sends warnings or error messages.
  • Inside a patch, you can use the trace function with the modules:


trace MIDI in

Traces MIDI messages received by external devices.

trace MIDI out

Traces MIDI output messages outgoing to external devices.

trace keyboard in

Traces all keyboard incoming messages, useful, for example, to know the numeric value of a key:

  • key:A - 65
  • key:Z - 90
  • key:arrow up - 238
  • key:arrow down - 240
