Channel controls: Tweaks mode
The controls in this mode vary depending on the channel type.
For Drum channels, controls for Tune, Trim and Damp (Damping amount) are available. These controls are also located within the Drum Editor.
Note that these controls are disabled for Drum mic sub-channels.
The following controls exist for Ambient mic channels - like Aux channels, the Ambient Mix channel features Trim and SC Trim controls - see below for details of these controls.
Distance (Ambient mic channels)
The Distance control offers a virtual control over the distance of each set of ambient mic channels from the kit.
Effectively it puts a short delay between the ambience channels and the direct mics. It has a similar effect to the ambience as a 'pre-delay' control has over the wet signal on an artificial reverb unit.
If custom routing of ambience signals has been set up using the Drum Editor, the Distance control has no effect on these signals with altered routings. It is possible to achieve the same effects using the Delay FX device on the relevant destination Aux channel(s).
Width (stereo channels only)
Using the Width control, you can change the width of Ambient mic channels' stereo field. Settings range from mono to fully enhanced stereo.
This setting is available only for stereo ambient mic channels. It applies to ambient mic signals of the relevant type even if they have been routed to custom Aux channel destinations using the Drum Editor
The following controls adjust the levels of the signals entering the the Aux channel's input. If the input is clipping, it may be more convenient to decrease these controls instead of reducing the levels of all signals routed to it.
This control adjusts the level of the main input to the Aux channel.
This control adjusts the level of the Aux channel's SideChain input.
Other (Other mic bleed level)
Some expansion pack libraries contain bleed in direct channels other than the kick and snare channels. For example, some BFD XFL kicks and snares possess an additional bleed signal in the hihat direct mic channel. This bleed appears in the hihat slot direct mic channel if one of these kit-pieces is used.
The Other control sets the bleed levels in all other direct mics except kicks and snares. If you are not using any such kit-pieces, this control does not have any effect.
