You can create knobs on the Synth Rack to control any of a synth’s automatable parameters (each knob learns what parameter to control when you create the knob). This makes it easy to adjust the controls that you use most often on a particular synth, and also lets you record automation from the Synth Rack. After you create some control knobs, the next time you insert the same synth, you can choose to display the same control knobs that you used previously.
1. Undock the Browser or dock it in the MultiDock. Assignable controls can not be shown when the Browser is docked at the left or right side.
2. In the synth’s strip of controls in the Synth Rack, click the Assign Controls button to enable it.
3. While the Assign Controls button is enabled, click on each control in the synth’s property page that you want to create a knob for.
4. When you’re finished clicking on controls, click the Assign Controls button to disable it.The Synth Rack displays knobs for the controls you selected, with the each knob’s name displayed below each knob. Now you can adjust some of the synth’s parameters by moving the appropriate knob in the Synth Rack.Figure 252. Assignable synth controls.A. Automated knobs B. Assign Controls C.
