Saving and Loading Your Progressions

1. When Signing In, check the box for 'Stay On', so the Session ID that is added to the URLs will stay the same and you can usually reload an idea from your browser history if needed. Note* The Session ID changes if you access your membership on another device or clear your cookies. So ideas are best saved as described below.

2. When copying URLs for storage to a Notepad Document, the Session ID (everything after .php) should be deleted, so the URLs are ready to load into later sessions regardless of a new Session ID. Press [c] to copy the URL; then manually paste into Notepad; then delete the Session ID. Or use the automated method described below.

3. Our custom Hotkeys setup allows the URLs to be automatically trimmed, copied, and pasted into a notepad document you have open though minimized. The process is to copy the urls of the song in the correct sequence into the document leaving a space between each event. Likewise, the progression can be manually or automatically loaded by pasting the events into the browser in succession.

The space between each is to make it easier to read: { N01 = C, N02 = C#, N03 = D, ..... , N12 = B }. The spectrum-based name for the mode is found before 'xstart.php'. Most songs are made entirely with the Main Spectrum in which the chords are easily identified: Maj { 1R 2O 3Y } or Min { 4G 5B 6I 7V }.

4. In addition to staying logged in and frequently storing your progressions, you can set your browser to Restore Previous Session on Startup. The browser can usually recall the full contents of many open tabs and all the chords of your song-loops; However, you must* cue each of your progression loops to their beginning [ j ], before closing your browser, so it knows how far back you want it to remember.

5. To easily keep your current song projects in open tabs, you can set up a separate User Profile for use only with Modal-Surf. Or you could use a separate brand of browser as some are better for this website.

6. A few chords of an important idea could always be saved to your bookmarks/favorites. Note* It will be difficult to edit the bookmarks later if you get logged out and their Session ID needs to be removed.
