* "Ticks per beat" is also known as "parts per quarter note".

* A quarter note or 'crotchet' is known as a beat ( in renoise and other sequencers ).

* Effect Column : -Qxx = Delay playback of the line by xx ticks ( maximum ticks per line is 16 ).

* Volume or Panning Column : Qx = Delay a note by x ticks (0 - F).

* Delay Coulumn : 00-FF = Delay a note ( or note off ) by 256ths of a line.

* Effect Column : -Rxy = Retrigger instrument every y ticks with volume factor x applied to each retrigger ( 0 - F ).

-- Retrigger volume factors --

0 - No volume change
1 - Lower volume by 3%
2 - Lower volume by 6%
3 - Lower volume by 12%
4 - Lower volume by 25%
5 - Lower volume by 50%
6 - Cumulatively lower volume by 33%
7 - Cumulatively lower volume by 50%
8 - No volume change
9 - Raise volume by 3%
A - Raise volume by 6%
B - Raise volume by 12%
C - Raise volume by 25%
D - Raise volume by 50%
E - Cumulatively raise volume by 50%
F - Cumulatively raise volume by 100%
