Explore the Tine and Tone Bar controls, and hear how they influence the shape and colour of the sound once notes are struck by the hammer.
See how these controls model the way a magnetic coil captures the sound of the fork in an electric piano, and hear how can produce everything from a clean to an overdriven distorted tone.
Hear how this module is used to simulate the production of noise when dampers are either raised from, or applied on, the fork; when a key is either depressed or released.
Discover how these controls are used to modulate either amplitude or panning, based on a repeating triangle or square shaped LFO.
