Hi all,

Does anyone know (or still care… :-) what the trailing “Of”, “+”, “-”, “St”, “Mn” etc. mean in the names of the waveforms in the MOX Data List (pages 29ff)?

Is there a spec of some sort?

Thanks, and nice day/evening.

Ralph

Here’s my short list (and maybe erroneous understanding):

St: Stereo
Mn: Mono
+: Tuned slightly sharp
-: Tuned slightly flat
Of: Offset

“Offset” means that waveform playback starts after the initial attack, i.e., the start is offset from the beginning. “Of” waveforms are typically used when programming a legato voice.

Hope this helps—pj

Agreed.

+: Tuned slightly sharp
-: Tuned slightly flat

My understanding is somewhat different…
+ = Sample extended above the original pitch
- = Sample extended below the original pitch

“Offset" means that waveform playback starts after the initial attack, i.e., the start is offset from the beginning. “Of” waveforms are typically used when programming a legato voice.

Yes. When playing legato, the attack should only be heard with the initial note, and not retriggered with succeeding ones. Using XA Control = “legato”, and “Of” Waveforms, that can be more easily accomplished.

Here are a couple more:
KOf = Key Off sound
Sw = Velocity-switched Waveform
