Groove Lock is one of Omnisphere’s most innovate features. With Groove Lock you can lock the groove of the Envelopes to the feel of any Stylus RMX or Standard MIDI file. This dramatically expands the rhythmic potential of the Omnisphere Envelopes. You can instantly create a Groove Lock envelope by simply dragging and dropping any standard MIDI file (for example, from Stylus RMX) onto the Envelope Display. This can be applied to any of the available envelope types; AMP, Filter and Mod.
When you drop a MIDI file onto the Envelope Display, it imports the rhythmic information contained in that MIDI file, resulting in a complex rhythmic envelope.
This is a very fast and convenient way to create complex envelopes, and can dramatically reduce the time required to create such envelopes from scratch.

Using MIDI files provides a great starting point for creating interesting new envelopes. It allows envelopes to be Groove Locked to other Spectrasonics plug-ins, or to any MIDI-based musical phrase in your project.
NOTE: When you drop a MIDI file onto the Envelope Display, it will replace the existing envelope. If desired, you can save your current envelope as an Envelope Preset before creating the new Groove Lock envelope.
