	Instrument Configuration: Configuring a Waveform Effect


	This part of the documentation explains how an Instrument Configuration
is performed. Similar operations in this system section have differing options
and only those are listed here. The Instrument Configuration is used to set
parameters for how the Instrument, Effect or Function behaves whilst being


	The configuration for a Waveform Effect has different options following
"continuous" from other Instrument types, only those options are listed below.
Most options will have arrow icons next to the setting to indicate that it can
be changed in a certain way, an arrow going right is to suggest that the content
can be edited via keyboard or the virtual keyboard in the parameter editor
section of the system, and arrows going up and down are to toggle or, increase
or decrease the current value.


		The effect duration time is shown to the right of the Effect
Path Sample length and is relative to a centisecond rate.


		Modifying the channel value to the next multiple of 16 will
imply the effect should route to an alternate mix group, there are 4 audio mix
groups in total. The route and subchannel values are shown to the right of the
channel value.

						Range: 0-255, Default: 0


		Switching this option will cause the Effect to either terminate
at the next loop ending or at the end of the Effect Path.

						Default: NO


		Toggling this will invoke playback of the Effect Path to recur
in the loop markers whilst a cue trigger is held.

						Default: YES


		Modifying this will cause the Effect Path to restart everytime a
cue is triggered.

						Default: NO


		This will switch the method in which the audio is effected with
its reference. "D" indicates Destination which is the existing reference audio,
"S" indicates Source which is the audio sample within the Instrument, and these
will both be included within an algebraic formula in standard notation. The
formula relates directly to how the effect is handled mathematically during
playback. Only certain effects will support this.

						Default: D+S


		Changing this will increase or decrease the division of the rate
at which the Effect Path will be referenced during play.

						Range: 1-256, Default: 1


		Altering this will modify the amount the effect influences the
reference audio during play.

						Range: 0-255, Default: 255
