The OP Create Dialog, also called the Tab menu, lets you create new Operators and is accessed by:

  • double-clicking on the background of a network
  • pressing the Tab key
  • clicking the + icon at the top of a Network Editor Pane beside the path
  • use MMB and/or RMB on OP inputs/outputs
  • RMB -> Add Operator on a Wire
  • RMB -> Add Operator on an empty part of a network

It gives you access to all the operator types, just click on a name and then click anywhere on a Network Editor Pane to place it in the network.

Select the Operator Family from the headings COMP TOP CHOP SOP MAT DAT.

Generators (types with no inputs) are shown using a darker shade, and Filters are the lighter shade of the OP color.

You can start typing the name of the OP type you are looking for. Any OP-type that matches the string you’ve typed will highlight in white. For example, type midi and all the OP types starting with midi will turn white.
