Modulation Panels

Noisy’s modulation panels grant an easy and efficient way to make your sounds more expressive and lively. They appear at several places inside the interface and let you use the two main modulation source signals (Expression and LFO) to manipulate the respective target parameter they are associated with.

  1. expr amount

Sets the modulation depth applied by the Expression signal to the target parameter.

Turning the knob clockwise will add more and more Expression signal on top of the respective parameter value. Turning the knob counter-clockwise means that the Expression signal will diminish the parameter value.

To learn how the Expression source signal can be configured, refer to the section ‘Expression’.

  1. rise & fall 

Rise and Fall work as dynamic envelopes that allow you to smoothen out the incoming Expression signal impulses. The Rise parameter adds inertia to the Expression signal whenever it is rising, while the Fall parameter delays the dropping movement.

Increasing the Rise parameter is useful for smoothing out short attack impulses or creating rising effects. Increasing the Fall parameter can be used to add realistic decays that sound like acoustics resonances.

rise

The Rise parameter is similar to the Attack stage of an AR Envelope, but it is only active while the Expression signal is increasing. If Rise is at 0, it means that the rising Expression signal won’t be altered and every nuance of it is kept. When increasing the Rise value, the Expression impulse will take longer to reach its maximum amplitude, which means that the parameter increases more smoothly. 

fall 

The Fall parameter is similar to the decay stage of a classic AR Envelope, but it is only active while the Expression signal is decreasing. If Fall is at 0, it means that the falling Expression signal won’t be altered. When increasing the Fall value, the Expression impulse will take more time to dropdown. 



 

  1. lfo range

Sets the amplitude of the LFO that is added to or subtracted from the current value of the respective target parameter. 

LFO Range is unipolar, so it can either be positive or negative. Turning the knob clockwise means that the LFO signal will be added to the current parameter value. Turning it counter-clockwise means it will be subtracted from it. 

To learn how the LFO source signal can be configured, refer to the section ‘LFO’.



 

  1. lfo expr mod 

Use this parameter to mingle the two main modulations signals together. It lets you use the Expression signal to modulate the LFO range in the same way as when modulating any other synth parameter.
