	Instrument Configuration: Configuring a Waveform Instrument


	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 Instrument 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 audio playback time is shown to the right of the Instrument
audio sample length and is relative to the standard nyquist samplerate of


		Modifying the channel value to the next multiple of 16 will
imply the playback 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 playback to either
terminate at the next loop end marker or the end of the audio sample.

						Default: NO


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

						Default: YES


		Modifying this cause the audio sample to restart everytime a
cue is triggered.

						Default: NO


		This will switch the method in which audio is mixed 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 mix is handled mathematically during playback.

						Default: D+S


		Changing this will offset the audio pitch by the specified value
whilst playing.

						Range: 0-255, Default: 0


		Altering this will reduce the audio amplitude by the specified
amount whilst playing. This value is multiplied to the audio sample bit width of

						Range: 0-255, Default: 255
