F.Freq--When set to a positive value, different velocities will control the Amount knob of the Filter Envelope. A negative value has the opposite effect. Mod Dec--When set to a positive value, different velocities will control the Decay parameter of the Filter Envelope. A negative value has the opposite effect. Level--When set to a positive value, the velocity will control the amount of volume. A negative value has the opposite effect. Amp Env Attaack--When set to positive value, the velocity will control the Attack parameter of the Amplitude Envelope. A negative value has the opposite effect. S.Start--When set to a positive value, the velocity will modify the starting time for the sample patch. A negative value has the opposite effect. The Pitch Section The Pitch Bend Range is used to assign a bend range to the Pitch Wheel of the main display (see Figure 12.6). By default, a value of 2 semitones is selected whenever a NN-XT is created in the Reason Device Rack, because this is the standard pitch bend range found on most hardware synths. However, the Pitch Bend Range has a potential range of 24 semitones, or two octaves. To increase or decrease the bend value, you can click on its scroll buttons, or simply click and drag on the display itself. Figure 12.6 The NN-XT Pitch section is used to make tuning adjustments to the Pitch Bend Wheel. Below the Pitch Bend Range are three parameters used to modify the pitch of individual samples within a patch. Take a look at what each of these parameters does: Octave--This parameter shifts the pitch of a selected sample in octave increments. The range of the Octave knob is +/- five octaves. Semi--This parameter shifts the pitch of a selected sample by semitone increments. The range of the Semi knob is +/- 12 semitones, or two octaves. Fine--This parameter is used to make minimal adjustments to selected samples by cent increments. The range of the Fine knob is +/- 50 cents, or half a semitone. The Keyboard Track knob is a parameter used to control the keyboard tracking of the NN-XT pitch. It's a fairy unique and unusual parameter that is best explained when having a patch loaded ready to listen to the resulting effect.
