These mode switches offer several methods for precise editing of the Envelopes.
ENVELOPES ZOOM SNAP
When SNAP is selected, any horizontal repositioning of a point is limited to 16th notes. The Envelope Display has vertical reference lines, which are helpful when using SNAP to line up the points at the 16th note divisions.
If the Envelope is short, under a few seconds, the SNAP points are correspondingly small. When an Envelope is long, the snap points appear to be greater in scale.
Keyboard Shortcut – Option/Alt
ENVELOPES ZOOM LOCK
When LOCK is enabled, all the points to the right of the point selected can be moved as one single group of stages. The only restriction is the current range of the Envelope Display.
Keyboard Shortcut -Command/Control
ENVELOPES ZOOM X/Y
This will constrain the movements vertically or horizontally.
Keyboard Shortcut – Shift
ENVELOPES ZOOM FINE
Movement of points will be at a higher resolution than normal when FINE is enabled. The numbers in the value window will be correspondingly small as long as FINE is in use.
ENVELOPES ZOOM SCALE
The duration of the Envelope will be scaled by dragging any of the points within it (except the first one). Dragging to the right will increase the duration and dragging to the left decrease it. Scaling the Envelope beyond the limit of Envelope Display will appear to ‘squish’ many of the points together, but selecting AUTO ZOOM will expand the view to fit them all.
NOTE: When zoomed in, clicking and dragging in an empty region of the envelope display will drag the display left or right.
TIP: When modulating Pitch using Mod Envelopes, use Alt/Opt-Shift to snap points to semitones.
