ORGANIZATION OF THE GRAINTABLES As you begin to explore the long list of over 80 graintables, it's refreshing to see that Propellerhead has categorized these graintables by type. This makes it much easier when beginning to build a new patch from scratch or when editing a patch. The graintable list is organized as follows: Bass-- 6 graintables FX-- 10 graintables Guitar-- 5 graintables Misc-- 3 graintables Perc-- 5 graintables Synth-- 22 graintables Voices-- 11 graintables Wave -- 10 graintables Wind-- 10 graintables Setting the Oscillator Frequency Once a graintable has been selected, you can then alter the frequency of the oscillators by using a combination of three parameters (see Figure 10.4). Figure 10.4 Alter the frequency of the oscillators by using the Octave, Semi, and Cent parameters. Octave--This parameter alters the frequency of a graintable by octaves and has a range of seven octaves. Semi--This parameter alters the frequency of a graintable by semitones and has a range of 12 semitones, or one full octave. Cent--This parameter alters the frequency of a graintable by cents. With a range of one semitone, it is used to make very fine adjustments to a loaded graintable. Altering the Oscillator Playback After setting the frequency of a graintable, you can alter the playback of the oscillators by using the Motion, Index, and Shift parameters (see Figure 10.5). Figure 10.5 The Index, Motion, and Shift controls allow you to tweak the selected graintable to the max.
