An interactive and/or video tutorial is coming soon! For now, please see the FAQ section or, even better, download the software and figure out how to use it. Controls are listed below.



Controls

Here's a cheatsheet of the many controls you can use within the Soniverse. Note that for many of these controls, holding the Shift/Ctrl keys while executing them will cause them to be altered. Shift generally makes things happen at a finer granularity, while Ctrl generally makes the action apply to multiple objects.
