VOICE EDIT MODE / 3: Full Edit. 3-2: AEG
3-2-01: LEVEL / 3-2-02: RATE
For the level parameters, a setting of “0” corresponds to the lowest possible
level (no sound) while a setting of 63 produces the highest output level. A “0”
rate parameter setting produces the slowest rate between levels, while the
maximum setting of “63” produces the fastest (almost instantaneous) change.
RS (Rate scaling)
Range: -7 ... +7
Allows the overall amplitude envelope generator decay rate to be varied
across the entire pitch range.
Plus (“+”) settings produce a longer overall envelope time for the low notes
and a shorter envelope time for the high notes. This is useful for simulating
instruments such as piano, in which the low notes take much longer to decay
than the high notes. The maximum “+7” setting produces the greatest envelope
length variation across the pitch range. Minus (“–”) settings produce the oppo-
site effect — short low notes and long high notes. A setting of “+0” results in
no envelope length variation.
