capabilities with the EWI5000 Sound Editor software. This custom software editor is a powerful platform for manipulating EWI5000's sound library on your Mac or PC. Connect EWI5000 to your computer via USB; call up any instrument from the library; and use the filter, two LFOs, pan knob, tune control, and multiple envelopes to tweak it into something entirely new. Then, store your edits directly on your EWI5000 for a customized instrument library that's ready to perform whenever you are.

To save the Program, click OK. </p><p> To cancel the operation, click Cancel. </p></li><li><p> 11 </p><p> Control Panel While in Synth Mode, you can use the Control Panel to edit your Programs and save them for later use. Each area of the Control Panel is described below. </p><p>To save your changes, please see Program Management &gt; Saving Programs. Main Page </p><p>The controls described in the following sections are available when viewing the Main Page. </p><p> Amp Controls </p><p>Volume: Use this slider to raise or lower the Program's volume. </p><p>Important: This is different from EWI5000's Level Button, which affects the volume of all Programs. Pan: Use this knob to set the Program's panning in the stereo field. Reverb: Use this slider to set the Program's Reverb Send level (the same as on the Effects page). You can also set this by using EWI5000's Reverb Knob. Chorus: Use this slider to set the Program's Chorus Send level (the same as on the Effects page). You can also set this by using EWI5000's Chorus Knob. Delay: Use this slider to set the Program's Delay Send level (the same as on the Effects page). You can also set this by pressing and holding EWI5000's Trans Button while turning its Bite Knob. </p></li><li><p> 12 </p><p> Pitch Controls </p><p>Tuning: Use this slider to set the Program's tuning (-1200 to +1200 cents). </p><p>Important: This is different from EWI5000's Semi Knob and Fine knob, which affect the tuning of all Programs. Env 2: Use this knob to set how much Envelope 2 (Env2) will modulate the pitch or tuning of the patch (-1200 to +1200 cents). Note: There are 100 cents in one semitone and 1200 cents in an octave. </p><p> LFO1 CC Amount </p><p> CC1: Use this knob to set the LFO1 depth according to the CC1 (mod wheel) values sent from EWI5000. </p><p>Note: EWI5000 must be set to send CC1 modulation messages to hear this. </p><p> Breath: Use this knob to set how much Breath control affects the LFO1 depth. The more air you blow into the mouthpiece, the more you will hear the effect. </p><p>LFO 2 CC Amount </p><p> CC1: Use this knob to set the LFO2 depth according to the CC1 (mod wheel) values sent from EWI5000. </p><p>Note: EWI5000 must be set to send CC1 modulation messages to hear this. </p><p> Breath: Use this knob to set how much Breath control affects the LFO2 depth. The more air you blow into the mouthpiece, the more you will hear the effect. </p></li><li><p> 13 </p><p> Filter Controls </p><p>Cutoff: Use this slider to set the cutoff frequency of the filter effect assigned to the Program. The filter's range is -100% to +100%, which corresponds to a range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. </p><p>Resonance: Use this slider to set the resonance amount of the filter. </p><p>Env 2: Use this knob to set how much Envelope 2 modulates the filter's cutoff frequency. </p><p>Breath: Use this knob to set how much EWI5000's breath sensor modulates the filter's cutoff frequency. Its range is -100% to +100%. At positive values, the filter will open more as you blow harder into the mouthpiece. At negative values, the filter will close as you blow harder into the mouthpiece. </p><p>Note: This knob has this effects only when EWI5000's breath sensor is set to send breath messages (CC #2). </p><p>Key: Use this knob to set how much the filter affects the audio. Its range is -100% to +100%. At positive values, the filter's effect is less intense. At negative values, the filter's effect is more intense. </p></li><li><p> 14 </p><p> LFO Controls </p><p>LFO1 </p><p>Freq: Use this knob to set the rate at which LFO1 modulates. Its range is -100% (very slow) to +100% (very fast). </p><p>Delay: Use this knob to set how much time occurs before the LFO affects the audio. Its range is 10ms to 10.0s. </p><p>Amp: Use this slider to set the amplitude depth for LFO1. </p><p>Filter: Use this slider to set the depth of the filter's cutoff frequency for LFO1. The filter LFO is bipolar, which lets you modulate its cutoff positively or negatively. </p><p>LFO2 </p><p>Freq: Use this knob to set the rate at which the LFO2 modulates. Its range is -100% (very slow) to +100% (very fast). </p><p>Delay: Use this knob to set how much time occurs before the LFO affects the audio. Its range is 10ms to 10.0s. </p><p>Pitch: Use this knob to set the range of pitch modulation for LFO2. </p></li><li><p> 15 </p><p> Envelope Controls Amp Envelope </p><p>Delay: Use this knob to set the amount of time before the note starts. Attack: Use this knob to set how much time it takes for the note's amplitude to ascend to the Program's volume level. </p><p>Hold: Use this knob to set how long the note will sound at the Program's maximum amplitude (the Program's volume) before moving to the Decay stage of the envelope. Decay: Use this knob to set how much time it takes for the note's amplitude to descend to the level of the Sustain parameter. Sustain: Use this knob to set the audio level of the note that the Decay stage will descend to. Note: EWI5000 does not use the Release stage of a traditional synth envelope. Key &gt; Decay: Use this knob set how much the Decay value modulates based on the note being played. The lower the note, the shorter the Decay time will be. The higher the note, the longer the Decay time will be. Key &gt; Hold: Use this knob to set how much the Hold value modulates based on the note being played. The lower the note, the shorter the Hold time will be. The higher the note, the longer the Hold time will be. </p></li><li><p> 16 </p><p> Envelope 2 </p><p>Important: Envelope 2's settings have identical functions to those of the Amp Envelope, but Envelope 2 modulates the tuning and filter cutoff frequency. (See the Pitch Controls and Filter Controls sections to learn more about how to adjust the amount of modulation.) </p><p> Delay: Use this knob to set the amount of time before the envelope starts. Attack: Use this knob to set how much time it takes for the pitch or filter cutoff to ascend to the level of the Program's tuning or filter cutoff. Hold: Use this knob to set how long the pitch...</p></li></ul>
