Hi,
Experimenting.
AWM2. One Part One element..

I can see how you can assign a controller such as AsgnKnob1 to things such as PEG Depth for example, and have done so with success using the knob to control the pitch.

But If I assign AsgnKnob2 to an insert effect such as InsA OverDrv, the entire sound just just takes on the insert effect full hog and can't see how to control the level.
How do I do it so I can control the amount of effect applied to an element using knob2?

Thanks guys
Daniel

and with the 2.0 version you can directly assign the super knob
i found the "Matering Montage" seris very useful, also check out these awsome videos :)

Hi Daniel,
It is the very nature of an Insertion Effect, that there is not a Send amount control. Like a guitar plugged into a Wah pedal that plugs to the amp (a perfect example of an in-line inserted Effect)... an Insertion Effect gets its name from the fact that the entire signal is sent through the Effect. The other type of Effect is the “System Effect” where each channel has a Send amount control, and a portion of the signal is routed to the Effect... as on a mixing console Send/Return System. Each channel has a way to send a portion of their signal in and the system Effect returns a composite stereo signal to mix with the main stereo out.

Then there is the Type of Insertion Effects. There are “utility” Effect types (Compressor/Limiters, EQs, etc) where 100% of the Signal always goes through the process. In others you’ll have a more subjective choice via a “DRY/WET” balance, which allows a certain portion of the signal to traverse the Effect unchanged. Controlling “Dry/Wet” is available in Effect Types where this is appropriate. (For an EQ or Compressor it would be illogical to have a Dry/Wet Balance Control).

You can see an overview of all the Effect Types and their parameters in the pdf Data List booklet.

Depending on the Insert Effect Type you are controlling you will find “Dry/Wet” as an assignable parameter.
Hint: when exploring an Effect’s parameter screen, when the cursor highlight is on an assignable parameter the [CONTROL ASSIGN] button will glow allowing you to directly assign a controller.

If you are using an insetion effect without dry/wet and wish it did -- you could copy the PART as a duplicate. One PART without the effect and one with it. Then use relative volume (level) of the two PARTs.

Yes this "burns" a PART and uses 2x polyphony.
