INSTRUMENTS / GENERATORS
Use the keyboard to preview & assign sliced regions to notes. This display simulates a Piano keyboard using stepsequencer-like pads in the place of keys. The region to key assignments set here affect how Slicex will respond to external note input also. NOTE: While the keyboard may look like the stepsequencer, it does not function as one, it is a preview keyboard only.
The assigned keys display in...ummm...well I'd like to say some 'manly' color like red, but there is no way around this...the active range displays in 'pink'. Apologies to our female users who believe it's 'tea rose'. The author (being male) sees only in 'real colors'.
To create layers assign more than one slice region to the same note. Assignments may be made from within or between decks A and B. There are a number of crossfade curve and layer options on the Master panel.
The Piano roll note colors can be used to control Decks 1 & 2 independently. As shown below even note colors play Deck 1 and odd note colors play Deck 2. Colors 15 & 16 are special 'reverse playback' colors. Remember that note colors represent MIDI channels 1 to 16 so you can access the same functionality from a properly configured MIDI controller.
