MS1 – How do I use the External Audio Input?

As well as using the internal oscillators on this synth, you can input your own audio source through the synth and manipulate the sound using some of the filter/amplitude envelope controls.

The EXT AUDIO IN jack input on the back of the unit accepts a TS ¼” jack input from any line level audio source.  Once connected and playing, the audio will be played through the synth whenever a key is triggered. The volume of your input audio can be altered using the EXT AUDIO fader is the SOURCE MIXER section of the synth.

The inputted audio can be affected by the VCF and envelope sections of the synthesizer, should you wish to change the cut-off frequency, resonance or amplitude envelope of your sound. For example, if you were to have a long release in the envelope section, the audio will play for longer after the key is release. However, the same filter and envelope settings will be applied to the internal oscillators. It is not possible to alter each sound individually.
