INSTRUMENT DESIGN

PERFORMANCE CONTROLS

Dynamics
Easy, real-time adjustment of loudness and intensity (MIDI CC1) for Tremolo articulations (rolls)

Attack
Increases the fade-in time per note, affecting the hardness of the initial transients

Release
Applies an additional envelope to the fade-out phase of the notes

Tuning
Sets the overall pitch of the instrument(s) – matching drum tone to your track’s key can help fit it into your mix

Velocity
Controls the dynamic range of the MIDI notes

MIXER AND EFFECTS

Microphone Mixes
Independent controls for Stereo, Close, Mid, Far, and Spot mixes with volume, pan, and output routing options

ADDITIONAL CONTROLS

  • Drum Head Resonance Simulation (DHRS) takes previous notes into account and triggers a sample with the appropriate 'drum head ringing' level
  • Per-instrument volume, pan, and tuning controls let you adjust the individual elements of all PERCUSSION kits
  • Non-tuned percussion instruments have velocity layers mapped to different MIDI keys, allowing consistent levels when playing live and offering other creative opportunities
  • Round-robin mode switchable from Cycle to Random

ARTICULATION SET UP

  • Multiple articulations – such as regular hits, crescendos, and flams – mapped to different MIDI keys
  • Articulation variations such as center hits or edge hits are available
  • Articulations affected by the variation selection marked with diagonal lines in Mapping view
