The mod­u­la­tion ma­trix

Computer Music - - Make Music Now -

Although mod­u­la­tion as­sign­ments in VPS Avenger are gen­er­ally made via drag and drop, they're all brought to­gether for pe­rusal and edit­ing in the mod­u­la­tion ma­trix, which re­places the LFO panel when se­lected. Oc­cu­py­ing such a small win­dow, the Ma­trix can get a bit cramped, but Vengeance have op­ti­mised the space by list­ing mod sources as col­lapsi­ble ‘fold­ers' with tar­gets nested in­side. Not only does this make nav­i­ga­tion ad­mirably straight­for­ward, it also en­ables each group of tar­gets to be in­stantly re­as­signed by swap­ping out the source at the top – in­ge­nious! Ev­ery source and tar­get can be in­di­vid­u­ally dis­abled, and the whole lot can be col­lapsed with a click of the ar­row but­ton at the bot­tom left.

Pair­ings can be de­fined in the Ma­trix, too: click the + but­ton and choose a source from the po­ten­tially huge (de­pend­ing on the scale of your patch) menu that ap­pears. Then, click

se­lect tar­get in the newly cre­ated slot and se­lect your in­tended tar­get pa­ram­e­ter from an even more ex­ten­sive list. To ad­just the mod­u­la­tion depth, drag the slider left or right; and to ap­ply an on­set ramp, drag the In­er­tia icon at the right-hand end. To add fur­ther tar­gets to a source, click the Add but­ton.
