Multiple Parameter Editing

This little panel of buttons is where you can set up multiple parameter editing. This is based on the concept of "following operators", where the edits you make to one operator will be followed by other operators.

Operator Follow 1..4

The 1 through 4 buttons turn on following for that particular operator, which causes that operator to follow any edits you make to any other operator-specific parameter. This includes any of the output section controls, frequency controls, EG controls (with the exception of operator 1 shift, since it's permanently disabled), and EG bias sensitivity.

For example, if you activate the 1 button, like so:

and you begin to edit the output level for operator 2, then the slider for operator 1 will be highlighted in red:

and any change you make to operator 2 will also be made to operator 1. This isn't restricted to edits on operator 2, though. Operator 1 will also follow edits you make to operator 3 or operator 4. So, buttons 1 through 4 will turn on following for the corresponding operator.

Carrier Follow And Modulator Follow

Carrier Follow and Modulator Follow are similar, but make the carrier operators follow each other and the modulator operators follow each other, these two being independent of each other. For example, if you have algorithm 5 selected (which has operators 1 and 3 as carriers, and 2 and 4 as modulators) and you turn on Carrier Follow, then operator 3 will follow edits you make to operator 1, and operator 1 will follow edits you make to operator 3. Edits you make to operators 1 and 3 when Carrier Follow is on won't affect operators 2 or 4, because 2 and 4 are modulators. It's easier to understand by playing with it, rather than reading an explanation, so experiment. Just note that when you select a control, any controls that are following your edits will be highlighted in red (or whatever you have the current highlight color set to in Set Highlight Color...).

The Carrier/Modulator Follow and Operator Follow functions are mutually exclusive of each other, so for example if you have operator 1 follow on, and you turn on carrier follow, then operator 1 follow will be turned off.


Following edits can be done on a relative or absolute basis. Clicking the Relative button will change it to Absolute. When Relative is selected, then, going by the example, operator 1 will change by one if you change operator 2 by one, five if you change operator 2 by five, etc. When absolute is selected, the output level of operator 1 will be set to the same value as you change the output level of operator 2.

1..4 On

This is just a shortcut to turn on following for all four operators at once.
