Larry begins by familiarizing you with the interface, so you’ll know what’s contained in each tab. Then you’ll learn about the Zone tab, where Larry will show you how to create a patch that’s key-mapped, enabling you to play it up and down throughout the keyboard’s range. The Velocity zone follows, which allows you to add expression to the sample and fade between different velocity layers.
Next, explore the options available within the Sample tab, where you’re able to tune, loop, reverse, trim samples, and more. Discover ways to add even more interest with the modulation oscillator, which can be used in FM or AM mode and looped as well.
Larry covers many other topics throughout the rest of the course, including the pitch envelope (create pitch effects, bowed-style sounds), global settings (samples can be spread, transposed, detuned, etc.), Filter/Global tab (filter envelope, wave shaper), Modulation tab (auxiliary envelope and 3 LFOs), MIDI tab, and more. Larry finishes off by demonstrating how to create a patch using a macro allowing you to quickly scroll through different drum samples for a track idea.
