MQ Morph (Bank Editor) MQ_yes MQLT_no MQLib_no

Slide1

Purpose:

To Morph, choose any two Patches in a Bank and select "Morph". The result is a Bank of new Patches which incrementally transpose from the first Patch through to the second Patch. This function is ideal if you are trying to find a sound that is somewhere between two given Patches. After the Bank is created. Click on the various Patches to audition them.

The best results for this algorithm are obtained when the instrument's sound engine is based on an algorithm instead of samples. For example, extremely good results are obtained for Yamaha FM based synthesizers particularly when both patches use the same operator algorithm.

note: This function is intended to create new sounds. As a result, this option is only active in bank editors for components which are tagged as sound generators.

Technical Note: in the case of some sound Patches, there are certain parameters where it does not make sense to "morph" the values. In these cases, the program sets the first half of the Patches to the value selected in the first Patch and the second half of the parameters set to the second half. An example of this situation would be the operator selector in Yamaha's 4-op and 6-op instruments. It does not make sense for this parameter to be morphed. In fact, any parameter which is modal (selects different states rather than selecting an amount for a particular property does not morph. In addition, patch names do not morph.

Directions:

To morph from one Patch to another:

 

1.Tap on the name of first Patch to select it and clear all other selections
2.Tap on the number of the second Patch to select it
3.Tap Morph on the Bank Editor button bar or
4.Two finger tap in the bank editor to display the pop-up menu and choose Morph

Example:

The following example shows the result of choosing two Patches

Bank Morph 1

and then selecting the Morph function.

Bank Morph 2

Post Randomization

Once all of the new patches have been created the Patch Audition dialog appears. Use this dialog to try out the newly created patches and save the ones you like to the collection or the library.
