Normalize time scaling and the loop rate with Fix Timing mm Click Fix Timing to multiply the Time Scaling value by all time parameters. There's a search field at the top of the Library. Values to the right of the centered position are nonsynchronized, and are displayed in Hertz—cycles per second. Do the following: mm Switch on Solo Point, to more easily listen to the settings for the single points. You can also cross-fade the filters when they are cabled in series.
In other words, oscillator 2 modulates oscillator 1. Turn full-right to hear blue noise high-passed noise. Adjust the Glide value, in ms, to determine the time it takes for the pitch to travel from the last played note to the next. The ring modulator is a device that dates back to the early days of the synthesizer. Resonance knob: Rotate to determine the basic sonic character of the vocoder. Osc 2 adds harmonics with its synced waveform, so you should only vary its pitch or sync waveform.
Set the lower slider halves to their lowest positions. Use this to fatten up the sound. The higher the value, the longer it takes for you to hear the modulation. Do the following: mm Set the Cutoff Frequency of Filter 2 to 0. The audio signal arriving at the analysis input passes through the analysis filter bank, where it is divided into bands. This allows the level in a frequency band to be increased. An increase of the resonance value results in a rejection of bass—low frequency energy—when using lowpass filters.
For all kits, you can preview the drums, edit the pitch, sustain, and volume of each drum kit piece, and exchange the kick and snare drums. Values to the left of the centered position are synchronized with the host application tempo. Osc1Wave Depending on the waveform selected for oscillator 1, you can control the pulse width of rectangular and pulse waves, the amount of frequency modulation, or the position of the Digiwave. If you select another Vector Envelope point by clicking it, the pointer positions in the Triangle and Planar Pad update to reflect your selection. Use a negative value to invert the modulation polarity. Each waveform has its own shape, providing different types of modulation. If the Env Mode menu is set to Finish, the Vector Envelope does not immediately begin the release phase when you release the key.
The result of this process is heard at the output of the vocoder. Adjust kit piece settings all kits 1 Click a drum or percussion piece. Check out my other and my video tutorial series, available exclusively on The Pro Audio Files. Not limited to vocal processing, you can also achieve interesting results by processing other audio material, such as drum or instrument loops. You can choose from 32 bars up to a 64th triplet note value. This waveform distortion also has the side benefit of introducing a number of new, audible harmonics.
Create a new point mm Shift-click between two existing points. Any point can be declared the Loop point. Do the following: mm Check out different filter and envelope settings. Click to choose Chorus, Flanger, or Phaser effect. Although the loop parameters seem similar to the loop parameters available for samples, there are significant differences between them.
Note: It is possible that mono compatibility could be lost with use of this parameter. If you turn the knob counterclockwise, you invert the effect of the modulation envelope, as follows: the envelope slopes down during the attack phase and slopes up during the decay and release time phases. You use modulation to add animation to your sound over time, making it more interesting, lively, or realistic. Note: The Harmonic and Fine tune knobs only affect the tuning relationship between the carrier and modulator oscillators. See Use the modulation router on page 59.
The longer and wider the pipe, the deeper the tone. In this way, the envelope follower of each band generates dynamic control signals. Balance slider Semi and Detune parameters are shown in Dual mode. Pitch changes are controlled by modulation routing 7—oscillator 2 pitch is assigned to the mod wheel.
