Knb (Knob) Module

Simple Value knob. Range is 0-127. Use click and up/down drag to make large changes; click and drag left/right for small changes.

Value Output:

Knb X: The knob value.

You may set the Help Tip message that pops up whenever the mouse cursor is over a Knob, as well as an offset to the value and a multiplier for it, with the Knob Setup dialog, which can be invoked by right clicking on the Knob Letter label.

A non zxero Mult input causes that value to be multiplied by the Knob value, so for example a Mult setting of 2 gives the Knob Value a range of 0 - 254 in increments of 2.

A value in the Ofst input adds an offset to the Knob value. You can add negative as well as positive offsets.

 

XK (Expanded Knob) Module

An array of Value Knobs. Up to 48 Knobs may be defined in a single XK module, in any combination of Rows x Columns, defined in the Layout dialog. Knobs will be given successive letters starting with "A" so, for example, the 3rd knob will appear in the Value Input dialog as "XK-C."

Each knob's range is 0-127. Use click and up/down drag to make large changes; click and drag left/right for small changes.

As for the Knob module, above, you can set offsets and multipliers for each knob with the XKnob Setup dialog, which can be invoked by right clicking on the knob letter label. You also have the option of setting an entire row or column to the same setup values, and to copy or paste the knob settings, to allow you to duplicate the settings into another XKnob module.

Btn (Button) Module

This is a set of two single-click strobe buttons, and three on/off gate buttons.  Each button's output is available as a separate logical output:

Btn X T1, Btn X T2: Trigger outputs that go True for one module calculation (MIDI clock) cycle, then return to False.  Use these to manually trigger events that might otherwise require a clock or strobe pulse.

Btn X G1, Btn X G2, Btn X G3: Gate outputs that are True when the button is depressed, and False when it is up.
