Whorld can play patches from a playlist automatically, like a jukebox; this is autoplay mode. Autoplay reduces the need for user interaction; it's how the demo works. Note that autoplay can only play patches in the current bank. Autoplay can be configured, as follows:
- To enable or disable autoplay mode, use View/Autoplay or Ctrl+A; you can also do this via the play button in the playlist dialog, or via MIDI.
- To select sequential versus random play, use the Shuffle button in the playlist dialog.
- To set the interval between patch changes, use the playlist dialog's Patch seconds edit box; you can also set this via MIDI.
- To make the transitions instantaneous or gradual, set the crossfade time. This can be done in various ways; see crossfading patches.
