 === Preset === === Preset ===
-You can select from 3 predefined presets and 1 user defined. + 
-== User == +The preset ​box provides settings that store previously entered parameters. ​ For inserting pitch bends, there are also 3 predefined presets:
-This preset ​stores ​previously entered parameters.+
 == Linear ramp == == Linear ramp ==
 Ramps pitch from value defined in pre bend box to end value of bend sequence box. Ramps pitch from value defined in pre bend box to end value of bend sequence box.
Line 30: Line 29:
 At the beginning of the selected range it's possible to insert a bend (pre bend), then after a definable delay (duration) the actual sequence begins. At the beginning of the selected range it's possible to insert a bend (pre bend), then after a definable delay (duration) the actual sequence begins.
 == Value (%) == == Value (%) ==
-Value of the very first pitch bend inserted in per cents. -100 % is lowest and 100 % highest possible pitch. 0 is neutral or "​normal"​.+Value of the very first pitch bend inserted in per cents. ​ 
 + 
 +For pitch bend, -100 % is lowest and 100 % highest possible pitch. ​ 
 +For controllers,​ the numbers correspond to controller values. 
 + 
 +In both cases, ​0 is neutral or "​normal"​.
 == Duration (%) == == Duration (%) ==
 Duration of the pre bend compared to whole selected range. If set to 100% no bend sequence is applied. Duration of the pre bend compared to whole selected range. If set to 100% no bend sequence is applied.
Line 38: Line 42:
 Duration of the linear ramp in per cents compared to time of selected events minus time of pre bend. Ramp ends before the sequence if lower than 100%. Duration of the linear ramp in per cents compared to time of selected events minus time of pre bend. Ramp ends before the sequence if lower than 100%.
 == End value (%) == == End value (%) ==
-The pitch at end of the ramp in per cents.+The pitch at end of the ramp, defined the same way as "​Value"​
 == Vibrato start amplitude (%) == == Vibrato start amplitude (%) ==
 This defines amplitude of the vibrato at beginning of the bend sequence. This defines amplitude of the vibrato at beginning of the bend sequence.
 +
 +Vibrato is only possible in Linear Ramp Mode with "Use this many steps" set.
 +
 == Vibrato end amplitude (%) == == Vibrato end amplitude (%) ==
 This defines amplitude of the vibrato at end of the bend sequence. This defines amplitude of the vibrato at end of the bend sequence.
 == Vibrato wavelength == == Vibrato wavelength ==
-This defines frequency of vibrato. Defined as resolution unitsSee below+This defines frequency of vibrato. ​ Defined as number of steps per cycle. 
-== Resolution ​== + 
-Sequence ​is divided in this many pieces.+=== Ramp Mode === 
 +== Linear == 
 + 
 +Ramps linearly. 
 + 
 +Vibrato is possible in only this mode. 
 + 
 +== Logarithmic ​== 
 + 
 +Ramps logarithmically. ​ This uses Tim Munro'​s algorithm. 
 + 
 +== Quarter Sine == 
 + 
 +The ramp has the shape of a quarter sine wave, from zero to peak, or from zero to trough if negative. 
 + 
 +== Half Sine == 
 + 
 +The ramp has the shape of half sine wave, from trough to peak, or from peak to trough if negative. 
 + 
 +== Illustration of all four ramp modes ==

 +{{:​doc:​pitchbendsequencedialog-rampmodes.jpg|}} 
 + 
 +=== How Many Steps === 
 + 
 +== Use step size == 
 + 
 +In this option, each step in the ramp is this size.  If the step size doesn'​t evenly divide the ramp size, multiple step sizes will be used. 
 + 
 +Vibrato is not possible in this mode. 
 + 
 +== Use this many steps == 
 + 
 +In this option, the sequence ​is divided in this many pieces.  This was formerly called "​Resolution"​.
