Master

Description

The Master section is where the global effects are configured and where you can manipulate the combined sound of all the instruments in your rack before it heads out to the sound card. There are two insert effect slots, a semi-parametric EQ, a limiter effect as well as a final volume control.

The Master Effects tutorial video shows how to use this machine

 

UI Reference

  1. Delay Loop toggle: When enabled, this tells the global delay unit to send to output of the final delay tap back into the first delay tap for continued processing.
  2. Delay Time Sync toggle: When enabled, the global delay's time knob snaps to BPM-sync intervals. Otherwise, the time knob is free to have any value, regardless of BPM sync.
  3. Delay First Tap Feedback toggle: When enabled, this tell the global delay unit to attenuate the input signal according to the Feedback knob before going into the first delay tap.
  4. Delay Step Count selector: Touching this selector controls the number of delay taps present inside the global delay unit.
  5. Delay Time knob: Controls the time before the signal is moved between each delay tap.(and output)
  6. Delay Feedback knob: Controls the amount of signal that is fed back into the next delay tap each time the signal moves between taps. This is effectively a volume damping control.
  7. Delay Damping knob: Controls the amount of high-frequency damping between taps in the global delay unit.
  8. Delay Wet knob: Controls the amount of signal coming out of the global delay unit that gets mixed into the final output signal path.
  9. Delay Pan knobs: Control the stereo panning for each delay tap output.
  10. Delay Bypass Toggle: When enabled (RED), the delay unit is active and producing signal. When disabled, the delay unit is bypassed and not outputing any signal.
  11. Delay Output VU meter: Indicates the level at which the global delay unit is outputing signal. If this reaches RED, then the global delay unit will output distorted sound.
  12. Reverb Pre Delay knob: Controls the small delay before the input signal reaches the reverberation chamber in the global reverb unit.
  13. Reverb Room Size knob: Controls the simulated room size for the global reverb unit (volume attenuation over time)
  14. Reverb High Frequency Damping: Controls the amount of high-frequency damping between echoes in the global reverb unit.
  15. Reverb Diffuse knob: Controls the amount of pre-smearing applied to the input signal before it hits the reverb chamber. This can help eliminate micro-echoes on sharp hits like drums.
  16. Reverb Dither Echoes button: When pressed, the time between each echo in the reverb chamber is slighly modified to simulate imperfection in surface (helps remove metallic sound)
  17. Reverb Early Reflections knob: Controls the volume of echoes occuring during the Pre delay(12) time.
  18. Reverb Early Reflections Decay knob: Controls how quickly the early reflections decay during the pre -delay(12) time.
  19. Reverb Stereo Delay knob: Controls the amount of delay time between the Left-Right stereo reverb outputs.
  20. Reverb Stereo Spread knob: Controls the mix of Stereo-Mono reverb output.
  21. Reverb Wet knob: Controls the amount of signal coming out of the global reverb unit that gets mixed into the final output signal path.
  22. Reverb Bypass toggle: When enabled (RED), the reverb unit is active and producing signal. When disabled, the reverb unit is bypassed and not outputing any signal.
  23. Reverb Output VU meter:  Indicates the level at which the global reverb unit is outputing signal. If this reaches RED, then the global reverb unit will output distorted sound.
  24. Master insert effect slots(x2): Touch inside one of these boxes to place an insert effect in the master signal path (after Delay and Reverb are added)
  25. EQ Bass Level knob: Controls the amount of low-frequency signal in the master audio output (boost or cut)
  26. EQ Bass-Mid Frequency knob: Controls the crossover frequency between the Bass and Mid level controls.
  27. EQ Mid Level knob: Controls the amount of mid-frequency signal in the master audio output (boost or cut)
  28. EQ Mid-High Frequency knob: Controls the crossover frequency between the Mid and High level controls.
  29. EQ High Level knob: Controls the amount of high-frequency signal in the master audio output (boost or cut)
  30. EQ Frequency Response curve: Displays an approximation of the 3 EQ frequency bands, their crossover frequencies and their effect on the incoming signal.
  31. EQ Bypass toggle: When enabled (RED), the EQ unit is active and modifying the incoming signal. When disabled, the EQ unit is bypassed and not modifying the signal.
  32. Limiter Pre knob: Controls the amplification of the signal going into the limiter
  33. Limiter Attack knob: Controls the time it takes to start clamping once signal over 100% has been detected.
  34. Limiter Release knob: Controls the time it rakes to stop clamping after the signal has gone below 100%.
  35. Limiter Post knob : Controls the amplification of the signal after it has been compressed (make-up gain).
  36. Limiter amount VU meter: Indicates the amount of limiting currently taking place (level of the signal being removed)
  37. Limiter Bypass toggle: When enabled (RED), the limiter unit is active and modifying the incoming signal. When disabled, the limiter unit is bypassed and not modifying the signal.
  38. Master Volume knob: Controls the final volume of the audio signal before it goes to the device's output.
  39. Master Stereo VU meter: Indicates the level at which the app is outputing signal. If this reaches RED, then the app will output distorted sound.
