Features.

• Quick selector to switch between different preset sounds:

1 • Tack Piano (88 keys): A warm, classic altered version of ordinary upright piano (Stereophonic Sampling)
2 • Western Saloon Piano (88 keys): A versatile bright upright piano to evoke a Hollywood Western style (Stereophonic Sampling)
3 • Jangle Honky Tonk Piano (88 keys): A honky tonk piano with an unique and slightly detuned sound (Monophonic Sampling).

• ADSR envelope generator with Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release parameters:
• Attack determines the time it takes for the note to get to the maximum level.
• Decay determines the time it takes for the note to go from the maximum level to the sustain level (controlled by Sustain).
• Sustain determines level the sound is played at while the note is held (after the other envelope states, Attack and Decay, have been completed).
• Release determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) level when it is released.

• Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected instrument.
• Pitch Bend center position: is normal pitch.
• Pitch Bend down: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the left.
• Pitch Bend up: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved the right.

• Reverb built-in: provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the sound reflections from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an acoustically reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.

• Filter Type. Combo box to switch between the following options:
• Low Pass (LPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency lower than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies higher than the cutoff frequency.
• High Pass (HPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency higher than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies lower than the cutoff frequency.
• None: No filter is applied.
• Cutoff Frequency Filter: Sets the cutoff frequency for the low pass and high pass filters.

• Volume: Adjusts the volume of the instrument.

• Panning potentiometer control: Set the panning of the instrument. Adjusts the stereo pan position of the signal output, which determines how much of signal is sent to the left and right channels.

• MIDI CC Automation.
