Overview

This instrument uses the slorkian fret-based mapping to trigger notes. It has been modified to allow polyphony.

How to Play

Pressing alphabetical keys triggers notes. Releasing them releases notes.

Moving the trackpad along the x-axis performs a filter sweep with a moderately high resonance.

Moving the trackpad along the y-axis detunes the sound's multiple oscillators from one another.

Pressing any of the digit keys 0-9 selects a different amplitude envelope. These envelope settings are arranged logically so that towards digit 1, sounds are more percussive, while towards digits 9 (and 0), sounds are pad-like.

Note that you may use a mouse rather than the trackpad to give the instrument a different feel. However, using the trackpad presents a nice advantage in that you can both hold down many notes while also using your thumb to control the trackpad.
