Hi all, although I have owned a Kronos for some time now, I am relatively new to creating/editing sounds with it.

The other night I was trying to make one of the programs decay (volume fade-out to zero while I still keep a key pressed), but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to do it.

The program voice I want to edit is called "Dare 2 B Square" (Bank: User B-101).

I would add that I am using this program in a Combi, so perhaps there's a way to control its decay directly from the Combi?

Can anyone give me pointers how to edit the decay of this sound?

Thanks in advance for any reply!

Hello,
What you have to do is to set the Enveloppe Generator dedicated to Amp. You will go to 4–3: Amp1 EG, page 91 of Paramter's Guide.

You have to put Sustain Level to 0 and set the Decay time to the length you want. That way, you keep the key depressed and sound will decrease until 0.
If the Program has two OSC, you will have to copy the same enveloppe to 4–7: Amp2 EG.

An easier way is to use TONE ADJUST in the combi. This is a powerful tool that allows you to modify individual sounds without having to edit the originals.

In the Combi, go to Control Surface. Set the left tab to Tone Adjust.
Select the Timber you want to adjust and look for the ADSR for the amp.

This is a very common group of parameters typically available for most sounds but if for some reason it doesn't appear, you can change existing parameters from a larger list available.

Then like stated above, lower the sustain to zero and set the decay to your fade out liking.

Thanks a lot for your replies guys.

Last night I have tried changing the Tone Adjust parameters in the Combi (making sure to select the correct Timbre) but had mixed results so far.

the AMP Sustain (set to zero) and AMP Decay (set to a negative value) not always gave the desired result, depending on the Timbre sometimes they didn't affect the decay at all. I am probably still missing something Think

In one case I had some joy by using the AMP/Filter Sustain and Decay (as opposed to AMP only).

In another case with a mono timbre, the decay is calculated from the start of the first 'staccato' key press, so if I play a 'legato' sequence of notes the volume gradually fades out over time, as opposed to fading out starting from the LAST key press. Not sure if there is an easy solution for this... Think

Tonight I will try fiddling with the Amp Envelope Generator at sound level (as opposed to Combi level) as per Livious2004 suggestion - and see if that maybe yields to better results.
