question about commands column in ACE Tracker

Post by xfalcon »

I'm working on some tracks with ACE Tracker and have some questions about the commands in the commands column. I have read the manual but I could not find a command table page.

I find out a few commands:
U = PU - pitch bend up
D = PD - pitch bend down
P = Pan
J = J - jump to patter xyz
N = P(8 note) - detune

On an a picture in the manual I saw an LFO command and in some other tracks the VCF command, but I could not find a key on the keyboard.


thanks for help.

Hi,

Can't belive I missed that in the manual... here we go:

Key(s) Parameter Value
[1]+[A] VCA Attack 0-3F
[1]+[D] VCA Decay 0-3F
[1]+ VCA Sustain 0-3F
[1]+[R] VCA Release 0-3F

[2]+[A] VCF Attack 0-3F
[2]+[D] VCF Decay 0-3F
[2]+ VCF Sustain 0-3F
[2]+[R] VCF Release 0-3F
[2]+[C] VCF Cutoff 0-3F
[2]+[E] VCF Env. Depth 0-3F
[2]+[O] VCF resOnance 0-3F

[3]+[F] LFO Freq. 0-3F
[3]+[D] LFO Depth 0-3F

[P] Pan 0-3F (0 is left 3F is right, 20 is middle)

[N] Portamento Note 0-FF (number of lines to slide between the two notes)

00 C-3 A1 --- -- Example that slides from C-3 to C-4 in two pattern lines. (Slide is finished when we reach pattern line 3)
01 C-4 -- P02 --

Portamento Up 0-F and 0-F where the first value defines number of semi notes and the second number of pattern lines.
[D] Portamento Down 0-F and 0-F where the first value defines number of semi notes and the second number of pattern lines.

00 C-3 A1 U22 -- Example that slides from C-3 to D-3 in two pattern lines. (Slide is finished when we reach pattern line 2)

[J] Jump to position 0-FF

To set tempo, just set a number without a command:

00 C-3 A1 -70 -- Sets tempo to 70 (70 is just a number - not related to any BPM or so)

Not yet, I have to rewrite my website. But in the moment I'm writing new songs. And that's more fun than writing html.
