Voice Control Section for Organ Zones

Voice Group

You can set the polyphony of a zone individually, by assigning it to one of 128 voice groups. The settings of voice groups can be edited in the Voice Management section of the program or layer.


Each zone that you trigger corresponds to a voice. If the number of played zones exceeds the Maximum Voices setting specified in the Options Editor, zones are cut off and replaced by other zones. This is called voice stealing. Use this parameter to specify a priority for this behavior. Zones with higher priority can steal zones with lower priority, but not vice versa. If there are no zones with lower priority, zones of the same priority are stolen. Zones with the priority Hold steal only from lower priorities, but not from zones with the same priority.

Variation Group

Specifies the alternation mode for the different variation groups.

Fade Out

Whenever a voice is stolen because a polyphony limit is reached, it is faded out. You can specify this fade out time for each zone, which allows you to adapt it to different signal types. For example, you might want to cut a stolen crash cymbal zone less abruptly than a stolen hi-hat zone.


Allows you to fine-tune the pitch in cent steps.

Pitchbend Up/Pitchbend Down

Determines the range for the modulation that is applied when you move the pitchbend wheel.


Adds a dedicated percussion envelope to emulate the percussion of vintage organs. The percussion envelope works in addition to the amplifier envelope.

  • The Percussion button activates/deactivates the percussion envelope.

  • The Length parameter controls the decay of the percussion.

    For example, set this to 500 ms for short percussion and to 1000 ms for long percussion.

  • On the Trigger pop-up menu, select First Note if you want to use monophonic triggering or Each Note if you want to use polyphonic triggering.


For the typical percussion sound of an organ, use only the drawbars 4' or 2 2/3'.
