The Cyclone

The Cyclone DXi is the equivalent of a very powerful MIDI sample playback device. Like the VSC DXi, the Cyclone is multi-timbral (meaning it can play more than one different sound at a time— up to 16), but instead of having built-in sounds, the Cyclone allows you to load in your own sounds in the form of audio sample loops in the WAV file format. The music-making possibilities of this DXi are astonishing to say the least.

Cyclone Basics

If you examine the main interface for the Cyclone (see Figure 10.23), you’ll notice that it provides 16 parts (called Pad Groups)—one Pad Group for each of the 16 available MIDI channels. Pad Group 1 for MIDI channel 1, Pad Group 2 for MIDI channel 2, and so on (although you can assign any MIDI channel to any Pad Group if you want).
