Amp Tab

Volume

Sets the level of the sample.

Pan

Sets the position of the sample in the stereo panorama.

AUX 1-4

Here, you can specify the signal level that is sent to the 4 integrated AUX FX channels.

Level Velocity

Determines how the velocity affects the level of the envelope.

The level of the envelope depends on two factors: the setting of this parameter and how hard you hit a key. Positive values increase the level of the envelope the harder you hit a key. Negative values decrease the level of the envelope the harder you hit a key.

Time Velocity

Adjusts the influence of velocity on the phases of the envelope. Positive values decrease the length of the phases for higher velocity values. Negative values increase the length of the phases for higher velocity values.

Segments

Here, you can select which phases of the envelope are affected by the Time Velocity parameter.

  • Attack – The velocity affects the attack only.

  • Attack + Decay – The velocity affects all phases until the sustain.

  • Decay – The velocity affects all phases until the sustain but without the attack.

  • Attack + Release – The velocity affects the attack and the release phases.

  • All – The velocity affects all phases.

Level Velocity Curve

You can select the curve type to specify how the incoming velocity translates to the level of the envelope. The characteristic of each curve is displayed by a small icon.

Output

The output to which the samples are routed. The following outputs are available:

  • The Kit Mix.

  • One of the 16 Agent mixer channels.

  • One of the 16 stereo output busses of the plug-in.

    If you use Groove Agent SE in a Steinberg DAW, selecting a plug-in output from the menu automatically activates this output in the host application. The first stereo out is the Master output. This output is always active.

    Note

    Samples that are routed to an output that is deactivated in your host application are automatically sent to the Master output of the plug-in.

  • One of the AUX channels. This allows you to create sub groups, for example.

Note

These outputs can all contain insert effects.

Norm (Use Normalized Velocity)
  • If you are working with normalized samples, keep this button deactivated.

  • If you are using velocity-layered samples that are not normalized, activate this button. Otherwise, you might create unrealistic level transitions between different velocity layers when setting the Vel<Lev parameter.
