Sound Preset

Preset Browser

Display order of presets

The display order in the preset browser is sorted in alphabetical order, with numbers from 0 to 9 first, then capital letters A to Z, and finally a to z. Therefore, you can sort the order by putting a number before the name.

You can share your presets with other users.

  1. Tap ALT button
  2. Select the preset or folder you want to export
  3. Tap Share button
  4. You can export the presets to Mail, iCloud, etc. via Share Extension

You can save presets created by other users in your user presets folder.

  • You can import presets via the File App, Mail and other applications that support Share Extension.
  • Imported presets are automatically saved in the User folder.

Programs Folder

In the "Programs" folder you can define which presets will be loaded when a MIDI program change message is received. The program number corresponds to the order of the sound preset in the "Program" folder.

You can sort the order of the program number by putting a number before the name. → Display order of presets

AUv3 host preset list

The presets stored in this folder can also be displayed in the preset list of the AUv3 host. On the settings screen, you can choose to display the factory presets or the contents of the program folder.

About the presets made with version 1

Show details

When you launch version 2 of the APP for the first time, a folder named "(Old Version Presets)" is created in the "User" folder, and the preset made with the old version is copied into this folder. This process will not be executed even if you launch it as AUv3 plugin.

If the old version preset does not appear in the "User" folder, please try the following.

    The tuning set here can be saved for use in other presets. The file is saved in a proprietary format. Files in other formats cannot be imported.

  • Maximum Polyphony

    Lower maximum polyphony setting will reduce the CPU usage.

  • Sync Method (Available when launched as a standalone app)
    • Internal
    • MIDI
    • Inter-App Audio
    • Ableton Link

    You can set the synchronization method of the arpeggiator.

  • Tempo (Available when launched as a standalone app)

    When the synchronization method is internal sync or Ableton Link, you can change the tempo of the arpeggiator.

  • Timing

    Adjusts the beat shift when synchronizing tempo.

  • Audio Buffer Size (Available when launched as a standalone app)

    The audio buffer size affects the amount of latency and the CPU usage. Higher setting will reduce crackling noise at high CPU usage, but also cause more latency.

  • Background Audio (Available when launched as a standalone app)

    If background audio is enabled, this app will consume battery power significantly even if other apps are running or if your screen is turned off.

  • MIDI Input Ports (Available when launched as a standalone app)

    You can set which MIDI input port to receive.

  • MIDI Input Channel (Available when launched as a standalone app)

    When the OMNI is OFF this app will receive only on the currently selected channel.

    You can connect Bluetooth MIDI compatible controllers.

  • MIDI Mapping - File

    You can save/load MIDI mapping settings.

  • MIDI Mapping - Takeover Mode
    • None

      As soon as you operate the MIDI controller, it will be reflected to the parameter. If the MIDI controller value and the parameter value are different, the parameter value will jump.

    • Pickup

      If the MIDI controller value is different from the parameter value, the parameter value will not be changed until the MIDI controller value crosses the currently set parameter value. However, even in this mode, if the MIDI controller is operated when the parameter value is out of the range set by the MIDI mapping, the set parameter value jumps to the boundary value of the range.

Arpeggiator

The arpeggiator rhythmically disperses MIDI signals from the host app or pressed chords from the on-screen keyboard. If you input a single note, the input single note will be repeated. When multiple notes are input at the same time, they are rhythmically dispersed as an arpeggio. Unless you use the "Hold" function, the arpeggiator will work only between note ON and OFF.

Arpeggiator ON/OFF Switch (button on the top left)

Switches the arpeggiator on/off.

Step Length

Adjust the number of steps. The arpeggiator will repeat the range of steps specified here.

Style

Sets the style of the arpeggiator.

Swing

Adjust how close to a perfect shuffle beat.

Loop Length

The arpeggiator cycles through the pressed notes in the order set in Style. This parameter sets how many triggers to return to the first note.

Octave

Sets how many octaves the arpeggiator will cycle through the held notes.

Rate

Sets the trigger speed of the arpeggiator.

Accent

Adjusts how strongly "Accent" affects.

Gate

Adjust gate time.

Staccato

Adjusts how strongly "Staccato" affects.

KeySync

When this setting is on, the arpeggiator's playback position returns to the beginning at note-on. When this setting is off, the arpeggiator's playback position is synchronized to the host app's beat position.

Sequencer

On/Off

If set to "On", the arpeggiator will trigger a note at that timing. If "Off" is set, the previous note will be extended.

Glide

If "On" is set, the pitch will be smoothly connected from the previous note. The speed of this pitch movement follows the "Glide" setting in the Basic control panel. If the Glide knob is set to zero, there will be no Glide effect.

Octave

If "On" is set, the note at that timing will be triggered one octave higher.

Accent

If “On” is set, the note at that timing will be triggered with high velocity value. How much to change depends on the "Accent" knob above.

Staccato

If "On" is set, the note at that timing will be triggered with short gate time. How much to change depends on the "Staccato" knob above.

Program Mode

The program row can be used when the style is set to "Program". It specifies which of the held notes on the keyboard will be played.

The upper row sets the number of the note to be played counting from the top of the note-on state, and the lower row sets the number of the note to be played counting from the bottom.

Example: When you hold down C3,E3,G3,B3,C4 keys, C3 is 1st note, E3 is 2nd note, G3 is 3rd note. B3 is 4th note. C4 is 5th note.

File

Arpeggiator settings can be saved separately from sound presets. The saved arpeggiator settings can also be used with other iceGear synthesizers.
