Sample Deck : Parameter & Pad Tools Panel

 

Parameter panel

Here controls that affect each selected pad (and by proxy their associated Cue) can be found. Parameters are saved to each pad, so if a pad and corresponding Cue are deleted, those same parameters will be lost. Pad colours will also change based on the Cue colour in the Main waveform. Cue Parameters can be adjusted across one or more pads simultaneously - to select multiple pads, simply hold shift while clicking on subsequent pads.

Cue Attack: Adjust the time it takes for the selected Cue to reach it's peak volume (0.00ms to 10s)

Cue Release: Adjust the time it takes for the selected Cue to drop from it's peak volume to silence (0.00ms to 10s)

NOTE: Deck play modes affect the Cue Release parameter.

Cue Reverse: Toggles reverse playback of the selected Cue.

Cue Favorite: 'Favorite' a Cue, to prevent it from being overwritten by the Autoset function. Using this in conjunction with the Autoset feature, allows you to retain useful Cue points, and quickly replace less useful ones.

Cue Tempo: Click & drag vertically to adjust the playback tempo of the selected Cue, from 75% to 300%. Cue playback is calculated with the Deck and Project BPM in mind, so increases to the Cue Tempo are cumulative. Use the 2x and 1/2 to quickly double and halve the Cue Tempo. Hold control/command while clicking & dragging vertically to make fine adjustments, or hold shift while doing so to make coarser adjustments.

Cue Key Shift: Allows for individual adjustments to the key of the selected Cue at values ranging from -24 to +24 semitones. Changes made are in addition to any changes made to the Deck or Project key, and are cumulative.

Pad tools panel

Select All: The Select All feature is useful for quickly selecting and editing multiple cue points at once. Click the Select All button to select all of your currently set cue points. Once selected, you are able to adjust the parameters for all of the selected cue points. 

Select all is located next to the Find Samples button

Clicking the Rubbish Bin button will remove the selected cue point or points. This can also be achieved by pressing the 'backspace' or 'delete' key on your computer's keyboard

Keyboard mode: Allows one Cue to be played across multiple pads, at a variable pitch, which represents the notes on the piano roll.
NOTE: The Keyboard mode toggle is greyed out when multiple pads are selected.

When turned off this feature will also show all notes on the piano roll, with their respective keyboard shortcuts displayed in the parameter panel.

Pad range (only available when Keyboard mode is turned on): Click on the left arrow to move the octave range for the pads down, or click on the right arrow to move the octave range for pads up.
