138 • The

138 • The FADEOUT(MSECS) field: This field sets the amount of time over which the sound fades down to silence at its end, measured in milliseconds. This is different than common "initial decay" or "release" envelope parameters since the decay will always end exactly at the end of the sample, this setting actually sets the position within the sound at which the decay will begin. This field is identical to the field of the same name in the SAMPLE NEW SOUND screen. • The VEL>START(MS) field: This field allows the incoming note velocity to modulate the start address of the sound. This is very useful for simulating dynamics on drums because a drum sound played from a position after its start sounds very much like the same drum played softly. The contents of this field sets the maximum time (in milliseconds) which will be added to the contents of the START field. If the incoming velocity is 1, the entire contents of this field is added to the START field, causing the sound to start playing from a position after its initial attack; if the incoming velocity is 127, nothing is added to the START field, causing a faster attack time; and for velocities between l and 127, a proportional amount of the contents of this field is added to the START field. • The VEL>ATTACK(MS) field: This field allows the incoming note velocity to modulate the attack time of the sound. This is very useful for simulating dynamics on drums because a drum sound played with a soft attack time sounds very much like the same drum played softly. The contents of the field sets the maximum time (in milliseconds) which will be added to the ATTACK field. If the incoming velocity is 1, the entire contents of this field is added to the ATTACK field, causing a slower attack time; if the incoming velocity is 127, nothing is added to the ATTACK field, causing a faster attack time; and for velocities between 1 and 127, a proportional amount of the contents of this field is added to the ATTACK field. NOTE: The ATTACK, FADEOUT, VEL>START, and VEL>ATTACK fields have maximum values which depend on the value of the sample length and the values set in the other fields. • The VEL>VOL(0-100) field: This field allows the incoming note velocity to modulate the volume level of the sound. A maximum setting of 100 is normal and produces full control of volume by the incoming note velocity setting. At the other extreme, a setting of 0 will cause the drum to play at full volume regardless of the note velocity. NOTE: All of the parameters in the EDIT A SOUND screens are saved with the individual sound file except the DOUBLE PLAY parameters, which are saved within SET files.

Section 6: Sampling and editing sounds 139 6.4 Tuning the drums Each of the 32 drums may be independently tuned over a 1 1/2 octave range, in .1 semitone increments. In addition to being very useful in adjusting the tone of a drum, some spectacular special effects can be created by tuning a sound by a large amount. To tune the drums, press the SOUNDS key, then type 3 to select the TUNE DRUMS option, and the following screen will appear: This screen is used to adjust the tuning of any of the drums. The range is from "-120" (one octave down) to "+60" (one half octave up), adjustable in increments of. 1 semitone. No tuning change is indicated by +0. If the BANK 2 light is ON, the 2nd bank of drums is displayed. A description of each of the screen fields and soft keys follows: • The PRC1 through BASS fields: These are the current tuning settings for the first 16 drums. If the BANK 2 light is ON, the second bank of drums, DRO1 - DR16, is displayed. To change the tuning, press the desired drum's pad or move the cursor to the desired drum field and change the setting using the DATA CONTROL or NUMERIC KEYPAD. To change from + to -, turn the DATA CONTROL to the left until negative numbers appear; to change from - to +, turn the DATA CONTROL to the right until positive numbers appear. • The MODE field: This field has two options: SEQUENCE and MASTER. described below: 1. SEQUENCE: Each of the 99 sequences has its own set of tuning settings which is saved when the sequence is saved to disk. If SEQUENCE is selected here, this set of sequence tunings is used. This is useful if you want the tuning settings of all drums to automatically change as you select different sequences.
