Includes: GERTP Table: LF1 - Dual LFOs 1

The following table shows the default GE Real-Time Parameters in an initialized RTC model. It's very rare that any of the parameters with slider/switch assignments are ever changed for a particular GE based on this RTC model. However a KARMA Designer will quite often change some of the non-assigned parameters, particularly in the 17-24 range, so some of the parameters that you see in a specific GE using this RTC model might not exactly match the following table.

RTC Model: LF1 - Dual LFOs 1 - 32 GE RTP
No. GE RT Parameter Min Max Value Assign
1 Env: Env On/Off [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0001 - - - - Switch 1

Turns Envelope 1 On/Off.

2 Env: Env Type [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0101 Val:+0022 - - - -

Allows you to choose any CC (or Velocity, Tempo, Pitch Bend, Duration etc.) for Envelope 1. Note that because the first six items are "special", the actual CC value is offset by "6". So to specify CC 16 (Ribbon), you would set the value to +0022, as shown here - then you will see the CC 016 number automatically displayed in each associated parameter name. Note: some of the first six “special settings” may not be valid depending on other internal settings of the GE.

3 Env: Start Level [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 1
4 Env: Attack Time [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 3
5 Env: Attack Lvl [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 2
6 Env: Decay Time [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 3
7 Env: Sustain Lvl [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 1
8 Env: Rel. Time [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Val:+0000 - - - -
9 Env: Rel. Level [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 1

The Envelope Level and Time parameters (3-9) are set the way they need to be for the particular LFO Waveform that is being created (Triangle, Sawtooth, Square). They generally should not be adjusted from their default settings. Their Slider assignments will also vary depending on the Waveform being created. Certain of the Level parameters will be grouped together on the "LFO Min" and "LFO Max" Sliders, and certain of the Time parameters will be grouped together on the "LFO Rate (Fine)" Slider - see the “Waveform Reference” Table at the end of this section.

10 Env: Amp Amount [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Val:+0099 - - - -

Sets an overall amplitude amount for the entire envelope. When used in a Combi, this can be assigned to the Master Layer.

11 Env: Time Scale [1] 016 Min:+0001 Max:+0010 Ctr:+0005 Slider 4

Sets the overall Time Scale, from 1 to 10 seconds. This is assigned to Slider 4 as "LFO Rate (Coarse)."

12 Env: Tempo Reltv [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0001 Val:+0001 - - - -

When On, the LFO will change speed when the Tempo is changed, and remain "relative" to the Tempo setting. When Off, the LFO will stay at the same rate when varying the Tempo.

13 Env: Loop Mode [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0002 - - - - Switch 2

Allows the LFO to continue looping. Turn off for a "one shot" LFO. Also, when using the Note Trigger features, you may want this off. Note that the Performance “Env. Latch Mode” setting is also related to how this functions.

14 Env: Note Trig [1] 016 Min:+0000 Max:+0001 - - - - Switch 3

When off, the LFO will loop (or function as a one-shot) according to the settings of Switch 2, “Loop Mode.” Turning this on causes the underlying Rhythm Pattern of single notes to trigger the LFO as an Envelope Generator, creating rhythmic pulses (you may wish to turn Switch 2 off in this case). Switches 4 and 8 and RTP 31 control the exact pattern of pulses. Note that you should have the Notes filtered out in the MIDI Filter section, unless you want to hear the actual single notes that cause the triggering!

15 Rhythm: Swing% 0~100,-200,+200 Min:+0000 Max:+0102 Val:+0000 - - - -

Allows a swing/hip-hop feel to be applied to the Rhythm Patterns that can be used to trigger the LFOs using the Note Trigger features. While not assigned to a control by default, in a Combi, this can be assigned to the Master Layer.

16 Rhythm: Template + Restore [B] Min:+0000 Max:+0012 - - - - Switch 8

Chooses one of 63 different Rhythm Pattern Templates, that can be used to drive a rhythmic retriggering of the LFOs (when using Switch 3, Note Trigger). The “Min” setting will choose the stored Rhythm Pattern, while the “Max” setting will choose one of the 63 templates. By changing the Max setting here, you can control which alternate Rhythm Pattern is selected by Switch 8.

17 Env: Env On/Off [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0001 - - - - Switch 5
18 Env: Env Type [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0101 Val:+0085 - - - -
19 Env: Start Level [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 5
20 Env: Attack Time [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 7
21 Env: Attack Lvl [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 6
22 Env: Decay Time [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 7
23 Env: Sustain Lvl [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 5
24 Env: Rel. Time [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Val:+0000 - - - -
25 Env: Rel. Level [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Ctr:+0050 Slider 5
26 Env: Amp Amount [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0099 Val:+0099 - - - -
27 Env: Time Scale [2] 079 Min:+0001 Max:+0010 Ctr:+0005 Slider 8
28 Env: Tempo Reltv [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0001 Val:+0001 - - - -
29 Env: Loop Mode [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0002 - - - - Switch 6
30 Env: Note Trig [2] 079 Min:+0000 Max:+0001 - - - - Switch 7

17-30 are the same as 1-14, except they are assigned to Envelope 2.

31 Rhythm: Ties-Random Factor [1] Min:-0099 Max:+0099 Val:+0099 - - - -

Allows the Random Ties Factor built into the Rhythm Patterns to be varied if desired. The default setting above is “no randomization, no rests.” Note that a setting of -99, is also no randomization, but adds in all the rests, resulting in a completely different set of Rhythm Patterns. In a Combi, this can be assigned to the Master Layer.

32 Rhythm: Strt/Dot/Trip Mults [B] Min:+0006 Max:+0009 - - - - Switch 4

Allows you to choose a Rhythm Multiplier setting that will be activated by Switch 4, altering the underlying rhythmic note pattern that can be used to trigger the LFOs when the Note Trigger switches are on. The settings shown here will double the rhythms, from 100% to 200%.
