Each note FX (or note effect) device manipulates incoming note messages before passing them onward. Incoming signals are passed through without change.
An MPE-friendly arpeggiator, which cycles through the notes being held in a set order. Timing is set rhythmically or as milliseconds. For each step, the specified note(s) is output with a for a set duration with a scaled velocity and pitch offset amount, as well as a global Randomize option for velocity, timing, and duration. 17 note patterns are available, in addition to three different Octave Behavior modes:
Broad takes each additional octave in sequence, stacking them up with possible irregular/repeating patterns. (This is the default.)
Thin flattens & sorts all notes into one linear shape. (This was the Arpeggiator behavior in v3.1.x and earlier.)
1 by 1 executes the full pattern in each octave before moving to the next octave.
A note transposer, which can correct or remove notes that do not match a set key and mode. Notes can also be shifted before the transposition is applied.
Micro-/macro-tuning of each note type, and octave. Defines the root note (which is kept in tune), and then tuning values for all other pitch classes, as well as the octave. Also provides an Amount control (for moderating all pitch offsets back toward standard equal temperament) and for frequency offset around A3 (traditionally
A relative note transposer, allowing up to seven notes to play for each received note message. Each note unit is defined relative to the incoming note's pitch and velocity. Realize that if you want the original incoming note to be passed through, one of the seven note paths must be used for that purpose (with pitch and velocity offsets of
A utility for delaying all notes that arrive, with an option to also Delay (note) Offs or to send them immediately. Good for having layers trigger at different times.
A tempo-syncable note repeater. The number of Repetitions can be set, or an infinite feedback mode can be enabled. Within the feedback/repetition loop are numerous parameters, including Time (to make repeated notes relatively closer together or spaced further apart) with a Random(ization) option, Gate (to scale the length of repeated notes), Velocity scaling, and Pitch scaling (that can be filtered to only apply within a defined range).
A filter that allows only notes from a set range of pitches and velocities (inclusive) to pass.
A note transposer that conforms incoming notes based on the active note messages of a different track (set as the Harmony Source). To improve the device's logic, a Pattern Key should be defined.
A note sustainer that either holds the current note until the next one is received (
Simple mode), only triggers every other note received (
Toggle mode), or only triggers every other note around a defined velocity threshold (
Velocity mode). This logic is applied on a polyphonic, per-pitch basis by default, but it can also be applied in a Mono fashion.
A device to set incoming notes to a fixed, optionally tempo-syncable Length. Note velocity can also be set to a Fixed value, and notes can be set to Trigger either at the start (
Release of each note.
Note Pitch Shifter
A simple note transposer, which can shift the incoming notes by a set number of octaves and/or semitones. A Fine control is also provided for shifting by fractions of a semitone.
A (piecewise) velocity shaper with three definable breakpoints.
A note transposer, which can remap each note class (for example, so every D becomes an F#, etc.). Notes can also be shifted before the transposition is applied.
