Velocity Controls The Malström is a velocity-sensitive synthesizer, as are the other Reason synths. The Velocity Controls are used to affect different parameters of the Malström according to how much velocity is applied to individual notes. Level A--This parameter velocity controls the output of OSC A. Level B-- This parameter velocity controls the output of OSC B. Filter Envelope--This parameter assigns the velocity control of the Filter Envelope. Attack--This parameter velocity controls the Attack parameter of OSC A, B, or both. Shift--This parameter velocity controls the Shift parameter of OSC A, B, or both. Modulation--This parameter velocity controls the amounts of Modulator A, B, or both. Pitch Bend Wheel The Pitch Bend Wheel is an emulation of a standard pitch wheel found on most MIDI keyboards. Simply put, it is used to bend the pitch of the played notes up and down. The Range parameter, located just above the Pitch Bend Wheel, controls the range of the pitch bend by up to +/- two octaves. Modulation Wheel The Modulation Wheel is used to control a number of available parameters: Index--This parameter affects the graintable index of OSC A, B, or both. Shift--This parameter affects the Shift parameter of OSC A, B, or both. Filter--This parameter affects the Frequency Filter of Filter A, B, or both. Modulation--This parameter alters the amount of modulation from Modulator A, B, or both. CV Connections Press the Tab key to flip the Device Rack around, and you'll see that the Malström has many connections that can be used to sequence with the Matrix, modulate other devices, or be modulated by other devices (see Figure 10.16). Figure 10.16 The back of the Malström offers many routing possibilities.
