Single note Features
- true range / extended range
You can limit the playable range of this instrument to be equal to the playable range of the ukulele. But to be honest, it’s way more fun to use the extended range and spread the samples across a few octaves on the keyboard. If you are used to play the piano you’ll love that function.
Every note is recorded 11 times and this is true for all velocity layers. Even fast repetitions on a single note is no problem.
Similar to the chords, we recorded every note in 4 different velocity layers. A scripted velocity function smoothes the transitions between different layers in order to give a seamless playback through the whole dynamic range.
It is possible to create additional octave notes from your performance (8vb and/or 8va). Usually, these octave notes follow the velocity of the original note but you can also put some amount of randomness into their value. This function is great when you are looking for inspiration!
For melodic lines you might want to put on monophonic mode. Obviously, a piano-esque performance requieres polyphonic mode. Even the octave notes can be put into monophonic mode individually. In particular, this is very useful for 8vb notes to prevent the sound from getting muddy and dull. Or by putting 8va notes into monophonic mode you can make sure that the top line is always heard.
Again, this function can also be found in the chords section. Take control over all indiviual round robin notes by using midi CC to re-create a particular performance.
