Drum 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 it's corresponding Cue are deleted, those same parameters will be lost. Pad colours are determined by the drum sound loaded onto that pad, and it's overall main frequency content - so kick drums are red, and higher frequency drum hits end up with lighter colours. 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 its peak volume (0.00ms to 10s) 

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


Cue Reverse: Toggles reverse playback of the selected Cue.


Voice Mode: Use this to determine the voice mode for playback of drums in the Drum deck. Use 'Mono' for single cue playback or 'Poly' for multiple instances of this cue to be played simultaneously.


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 drum pads at once. Click the Select All button to select all of your currently set drum pads. Once selected, you are able to adjust the parameters for all of the selected drum pad. 

Select all is located next to the located below the Parameter Panel


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: This allows the selected drum pad to be played across a piano range. Once enabled, the scene player area of the software will display a piano roll. Your selected drum pad can be played at variable pitches and have notes adjusted off the grid.

Note: The Keyboard mode toggle is greyed out when multiple pads are selected.
