• Low Frequency Oscillator Section: These  knobs apply modulation to the selected instrument. By using the LFO to modulate various aspects of the audio signal, you can apply effects such as vibrato or tremolo.

Ø Rate: This knob controls the frequency. Turn clockwise for a faster modulation rate.
Ø Depth: This knob controls the amplitude. With a lower setting, the resulting modulation is subtle, while a higher depth will result in a much more extreme effect.

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

Ø Attack determines the time it takes for the note to get to the 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 level the sound is played at while the note is held (after the other envelope states, Attack and Decay, have been completed).
Ø Release determines the time it takes for the note to fall from the sustain level to zero (silence) level when it is 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 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.

• Amplitude Range Parameters: It controls the loudness, the way in which we perceive amplitude.The sensitivity level is set by the user:

Ø Amplitude range (low) - sets amplitude range, lower bound (dB) 
Ø Amplitude range (high) - sets amplitude range, upper bound (dB)

• 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 signal is sent to the left and right channels.

• MIDI CC Automation: Implementation of MIDI Continuous Controller parameters for use with external hardware control via DAW, such as: LFO depth (CC#1), expression (CC#11), volume (CC#7), pan (CC#10), balance (CC#8), filter cutoff (CC#74), ADSR (Attack: CC#73, Decay: CC#75, Sustain: CC#76, Release: CC#72) and reverb depth (CC#91).

The Tanpura (or tambura, tanpuri) is a long-necked plucked string instrument found in various forms in Indian music. It does not play melody but rather supports and sustains the melody of another instrument or singer by providing a continuous harmonic bourdon or drone.

The Sitar is a Hindustani classical stringed instrument which utilizes sympathetic strings along with regular strings and a gourd resonating chamber to produce a very distinctive sound. It was popularized by "legendary sitar virtuoso" and composer Ravi Shankar in the 1960s.
