Explore Tremor's interface and see how the controls for the drum synthesizers, step sequencer and effects processing are laid out.
The Preset Pickers9:25
Learn how to customize and personalize the factory defaults by mixing and matching presets from the the five preset pickers located in different areas of the Tremor architecture.
Triggering Tremor with a DAW6:28
See how the individual synth engines are mapped to MIDI notes, as well as how to use trigger notes in your DAW to play any of the 24 available patterns in the step sequencer section.
Transport & Custom Metronome6:11
Learn about the Undo/Redo functions, the transport controls and how to use a customized metronome sound.
Basic Real-Time Recording4:11
Discover how to record Tremor sounds in your DAW, as well as how to record into empty patterns using real time MIDI input.
Standalone & General Controls5:22
Explore how to connect the stand alone version of Tremor to your Audio and MIDI hardware, set the tempo either numerically or by tapping and control playback from your QWERTY keyboard.
The Synthesis Engine
Kit Page Controls5:42
See how the Kit Page is used for master Synth Engine controls and how the Macro controls are used for direct access to select synth engine parameters.
Ramp & Repeats5:04
Discover how repeat triggers are generated from a single trigger input and then used as a downward ramp modulation source.
The Oscillator Controls7:40
The heart of each synth engine is the oscillator. See how to control its pitch, shape, pitch modulation, width and frequency.
Harmonics & Membrane Controls5:43
Discover how the harmonics and membrane mode controls are used to shape and influence the partials generated from the main oscillator.
Noise, Mixer & Sub Oscillator4:13
See how white noise is shaped with the built-in bandpass filter and blended with the oscillator and sub oscillator sounds in the synth engine mixer section.
Drive, Filter & Output Controls6:42
Explore how the drive controls are used both before and after the filter section, how the various Clean and Fat filter modes work and how to set the output stage of the synth engine that feeds the final Amp Envelope.
LFOs are repeating cyclical patterns that are used as modulation sources to animate other parameters over time. Hear how they are used on a per synth engine basis to add motion to parameters like filter cut off, post filter overdrive and panning.
Sample & Hold, Envelopes & Macros9:45
Discover how these modulation sources are used and assigned to dynamically modulate destination parameters over time.
Engine Setup & TransMod7:42
See how to use the Engine Setup controls to link voices for automatic layering, create choke groups, have individual engines play back at multiples of the main tempo and more.
Discover how to work with and manage synth engine and master output FX and FX chains.
Patterns, Graphs and Mapping
Working with Patterns5:56
Learn how the 4 playback modes work, how to rename and manage the 24 available patterns, change the step sizes used and add swing values.
See how notes are entered into step cells to create patterns and how the velocity, repeats, probability, insert and step size features are used to easily construct interesting and evolving patterns.
Discover how graphs are used as modulation sources to vary synth engine parameters based on each step of the underlying pattern.
Learn how MIDI CC and host based automation are set up and used for continuous rather than step based automation.
