Key Step

A Key Step Curve can be applied to any Effect Parameter Controller. Such a Curve defines a value to be added to the current Controller value every time a Key is pressed. When the Key Step Curve reaches the end, it starts over at the beginning.

Key Step Curve Editor (left panel)


The Key Step Curve display shows a graph of the Modified Controller Value versus Step Number

The Modified Controller Value is the sum of the Key Step Curve itself and the current Controller value. Thus, a zero Key Step Curve is displayed as a constant graph equal to the current Controller value. When you change the current value of the Controller using the Slider in the right panel, the displayed Curve will move up and down with it, corresponding to no change in the Key Step Curve itself.
