Sundawn Preset Name:
Voice Mode
The various Voice Modes determine which combination of units is triggered
when keys are pressed.
All units play each pressed note in unison.
Assigns keyboard ranges to trigger individual units.
Each subsequent key press cycles to next unit.
Keypresses trigger units in random order.
Chord (Blow)
Chord notes are assigned to the units with the lowest note triggering the
bottom unit. Higher notes trigger higher units in ascending order.
Chord (Grow)
Chord notes are assigned to the units cyclically.
Show/Hide Tooltips: When activated, Tooltips
are displayed when cursor hovers over switches
or knobs.
Show/Hide Parameter Links: Permanently shows
parameter links or hides them.
Show/Hide Parameter Values: Permanently shows
parameter values or hides them.
Preset changes are marked with a
star. If the Preset Browser is minimized, the name for saving the Preset is entered into this field.
Up/Down-Toggle: In Revolver and Chord Mode, this switch determines whether the next higher or lower unit is chosen for the next note.
Reload Preset:
Loads the last saved state of the current Preset if it has been changed.
Monophonic Mode: Toggles the current Voice Mode between monophonic and polyphonic (monophonic when lit).
Fill Mode: When activated, new notes played are assigned to units currently holding few notes, allowing for well-balanced sound characteristics.
Show/Hide Keyboard: Shows the Keyboard or
narrows it to a small bar displaying the color assignments between the Units and individual keys.
Preferences: Opens the Preferences dialog for
changing sound card parameters, MIDI mapping
and other settings.
Master Volume Slider/Meter: Shows the signal
level and allows adjustment of the Master Volume. Digital clipping is indicated by a red light
Vier Logo:
Opens the Preferences dialog for changing sound card parameters, MIDI mapping
and other settings.
Show/Hide Presets Button:
Opens and closes the Preset Browser.
Favorites: Every preset marked with the Favorite
Star appears in this list. If one of these presets is selected, the Next/Previous switches cycle the selection bar
through this list.
Factory Presets: : This list includes all Factory Presets. If
one of these presets is selected, the Next/Previous switches cycle the selection bar through this list.
Eisenberg Logo:
Opens the About
Screen, containing information about the
installed program version.
User Presets: This list contains all User Presets. Right
clicking opens additional options. The disc symbol
shows the target destination for saving Presets.
Next/Previous Preset:
Cycles through presets from current marker position within the
Save Preset:
Allows saving the active Preset
under the current or a new name.
The name may be entered within
the Browser or in the Preset Name
Parameter Name:
Parameters may be linked by left clicking and dragging
from one parameter name to another. Those parameters are now grouped, and the connection may be
displayed through the “Show Parameter Links“ option.
Grouped parameters follow each other in a ratio that
is displayed by the Parameter Coronas. Hovering over
a knob displays a colored point. Clicking on this point
displays the Corona as a colorful ring and the link-ratio
percentage. A value of 100% marks the neutral setting
and indicates that the corresponding parameter follows another one from the group at a one-to-one ratio.
A value of, for example, -50% indicates that it follows
a linked parameter counter-rotating in a ratio of 1:0.5.
Right clicking the Parameter Name allows linking
and disconnecting whole columns or cutting all of a
parameter’s links. When over-winding one of a group’s
parameters, moving beyond its scale’s limits, the other
parameters turn further, even when the group parameter stops at its limit. When turning back, it stays until the
original ratio is restored.
Makro Section: The eight Macro Controllers may be
freely connected to other parameters or parameter
groups. Their names may be defined by right clicking
on the name tags.
Glide: Displays when Glide is activated, i.e., when gliding
legato between two different notes’ tone pitches.
Note: Displays when the corresponding unit is processing a note.
Waveform Selector:
Selects the VCO’s waveform from pulse, sawtooth, or noise, or it deactivates the VCO, allowing
sounds with the filter in
Right clicking on the parameter names also allows you
to copy and paste the values of the parameter and/or
its Corona values. This also works for sections (VCO, VCF,
VCA) or whole units.
LFO Target Selector:
Selects the modulation
target of LFO 1. FM means
PWM means pulse width
Glide: Controls Glide time when several notes are
being played legato consecutively.
Pulsewidth: Controls the width of the pulse wave.
Tune: De-tunes the unit’s VCO within a range of +/-24
Keyboard: Notes may be played by clicking on the
screen keyboard. Clicking lower parts of a key will increase the resulting volume.
Level: Controls the modulation level of selected LFO
target (FM or PWM).
Time: Controls the frequency or cycle length of LFO 1.
Colours: A key’s color indicates which unit the corresponding note has been assigned to.
Frequ.: Controls the filter’s Cutoff-Frequency.
Key Track Selector: Switches the FilterCutoff-Frequency‘s Key-Tracking to 0% or
50% or 100%.
Accent: Although this control is labeled Accent, it effectively controls
the unit’s volume.
Attack: Controls the envelope’s Attack-Phase length.
Envelope: Controls the Filter-Cutoff-Frequency’s Envelope-Modulation level.
Decay: Controls the envelope’s Decay-Phase.
Emphasis: Controls the filter’s resonance
up to self-oscillation.
Release: Controls the envelope’s Release-Phase length.
Level: Controls the LFO Modulation level of
the Filter-Cutoff-Frequency.
Time: Controls frequency or cycle length
of LFO 2.
Sustain: Controls the envelope’s Sustain-Phase volume.
Drive: Overamplifies the signal organically at different spots: behind the
VCO, in the Moog-Filter-Cascade and within the VCA/Envelope.
Ctrl+Click/Right Click
Allows adjusting parameters or Coronas at tenfold
Temporarily disconnects a parameter from a group, allowing adjustments without affecting the other grouped parameters.
