ArcSyn User Manual: Mod Sources
- Modulation Matrix Sources A and B to be combined together and processed in different ways.
- Modulation sources can range between -1 and +1.
LFOs 1-8. These can be positive, negative or both depending on the setting of the LFO OFFSET control.
Envelopes 1-4. Envelope 4 is pre-patched to the main output level of ArcSyn. Envelope outputs are positive only, from 0 to 1.
MIDI note number. Positive only.
MIDI note velocity. Positive only.
MIDI note release velocity. Very few MIDI keyboards generate release velocity information but it's here just in case yours does. It's also possible to edit release velocity information in the 'list' (or 'piano roll') editor in some sequencer/DAW programs. Positive only.
MIDI modulation wheel. Positive only. This is smoothed to prevent zipper noise.
MIDI pressure sensitivity information, sometimes known as 'channel' pressure. Positive only.
MIDI aftertouch or poly pressure information. Not many keyboards generate this! Positive only.
MIDI pitch-bend wheel. This ranges from -1 to +1 and is unaffected by the MIDI pitch-bend +/- range setting.
A random level between 0 and +1 is generated every time ArcSyn receives a MIDI note-on event.
The outputs of modulation matrix slots 1-16 are also available as modulation sources. They are taken before the modulation AMOUNT sliders so you don't need to adjust the slider levels to use them.
A source which consists of a level from 0 to +1 which depends on how many voices are currently playing. If all 32 voices are playing, the level is +1.
A constant level of +1. Useful to control the level of other modulation sources or to use as an input to a modifier.
