• ADSR envelope generator with Attack, Sustain, Decay and Release parameters:

Ø Attack determines the time it takes for the note to reach its maximum level.
Ø Decay determines the time it takes for the note to go from the maximum level to the sustain level (controlled by Sustain).
Ø Sustain determines the level at which the sound is played while the note is held (after the other envelope states, Attack and Decay have passed).
Ø Release determines the amount of time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) when released.

• Pitch Bend: The Pitch Bend knob directly changes the pitch of the selected instrument.

Ø Pitch Bend center position: is normal pitch.
Ø Pitch Bend down: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the left.
Ø Pitch Bend up: Specifies the amount of pitch change that will occur when the pitch bend/modulation lever is moved to the right.

• Reverb built-in: provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the sound reflections from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an acoustically reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.

• Filter Type. Combo box to switch between the following options:

Ø Low Pass (LPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency lower than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies higher than the cutoff frequency.
Ø High Pass (HPF): a filter that passes signals with a frequency higher than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies lower than the cutoff frequency.
Ø None: No filter is applied. 
Ø Cutoff Frequency Filter: Sets the cutoff frequency for the low pass and high pass filters.

• Volume: Adjusts the volume of the instrument.

• Panning potentiometer control: Set the panning of the instrument. Adjusts the stereo pan position of the signal output, which determines how much of the signal is sent to the left and right channels.
