This is similar to the 'Root Note' function in a Sampler and is the main control to adjust when matching the resynthesized sound with the original sample.
RESOLUTION - Changes the rate at which Breakpoints are laid down (similar to sample rate).
BALANCE - Adjust the TEST playback balance between the original sample (fully left) and the resynthesized sound (fully right).
The default is a 50/50 mix of the original and resynthesized sounds and is a good starting position as you use the Note & Detune controls to fine-tune the tone of the resynthesized sound to match the original.
The Resynthesis function takes an input sample and recreates the sound as a 'Spectrum' that is a series of Breakpoints.
Each Breakpoint represents a harmonic 'snapshot' of the sound at a given moment in time.The Normal setting is the lowest resolution while Best has the highest and works in conjunction with the SPECTRUM menu item 'Import charged sample'.Changes to RESOLUTION will only be audible once the resynthesized sound has been loaded to a ZONE (see below).Details are as follows - 'Load': Load the sample to be resynthesized by clicking the CHARGE SMP button.Pad/String sounds are a good example to start with as they are usually the easiest to resynthesize. Reverb or delay effects are difficult for the resynthesis algorithm to interpret and often sound strange.Favor samples without effects and in the MIDI note range C4 to C5 for the best results.NOTE - Change the root note of the resynthesized sound (the note that corresponds to the original pitch of the sound).For the most accurate results Morphine offers several manual controls to 'tune' the resynthesized sound to the original.The tutorial at the bottom of this page has more details on manual tuning.TEST - Starts/Stops a looped play-back of the original and resynthesized 'preview' sound.NOTE: The resynthesized sound heard here is a preview only (in order to reduce CPU load for testing).
