The list of those controls is termed keep an eye on information. adjustments effected to those controls through the process a composition will be recorded onto controller lanes, this means that those adjustments can then develop into an necessary function of the composition itself. you may also automate those alterations utilizing a pencil software inside a given controller lane. during this approach, you could manage styles of keep an eye on info procedures, corresponding to rhythmic panning results, vibrato results, or that LFO wobble so well known in drum and bass. utilizing those controller lanes can before everything appear to be relatively daunting, simply because there's anyone lane to be had for each parameter. determine sixteen. 2 exhibits you simply the various controller lanes used to impact the output of the explanation Thor synth. determine sixteen. 2 Controller lanes for the Thor Polysonic synth. the main common sense procedure is to set the loop to play after which scan with the controls and hear the best way they have an effect on the sound. in the event you locate whatever you love, easily list these alterations.
