the master track allows you to transpose selected tracks and create harmonic chord progressions. the OP-Z automatically analyses the notes used in the bass, lead, arp and chord tracks to determine the key of the pattern. using the piano keys it is then possible to change key / mode. use the dials to control the master effects and filter.
turn the green dial to adjust the master chorus effect. this will also add a subtle stereo effect.
the blue dial controls the master drive, adding a subtle overdrive to your mix.
the yellow and red dials control the master filter.
it's a combination high-pass / low-pass filter, with
an unaffected neutral setting in the middle.
OP-Z automatically analyses the notes used in the bass, lead, arp and chord tracks and detects the mode and key of the active pattern.
the bass track is the main source for this analysis.
using the piano keys it is then possible to transpose the pattern and change its key and mode.
to choose which tracks to be included press and hold shift and press the different track buttons. to include a track make sure its track led is lit.
pro-tip: transposing drums can be a great way to do drum fills.
use the transpose buttons to change octave used (represented by the value keys).
by programming different chords onto the master track you can create chord progressions. program the master track just like any of the audio tracks.
hold track + shift and choose playback speed using the value keys.
a setting of 4
gives you a
four bar loop.
(available since os 1.2.12)
there are two note styles on the master track – latch and free. note style is set by holding track and turning the blue dial
latch quantizes to even steps without micro timing and programmed notes stay active until the end of the bar. free has micro timing and no latching.
pro-tip: extend the master track duration by lowering the playback speed to allow for longer sequences.
