Fader functions: range, value as

The following parameters determine the minimum and maximum values of a fader, and how the fader displays these values:

  • Range: Contains two numbers—the left one sets the lowest possible fader value, and the right one sets the highest. Note that these limits can be exceeded by MIDI remote control. When the fader style is a button, the range determines the in and out position values of the button.

    For text style faders, the first name always corresponds to the low end of the range, and subsequent names correspond to incremental range values, up to the top range. The number of names that can be entered into the window is limited by the range.

  • Value as: Determines the way that numerical values are displayed by the fader:

    • Number: The fader value is displayed as a number (0 to 127).

    • Pan: Fader value 64 is displayed as 0; smaller values appear as negative numbers and larger values as positive numbers (–64 to 63).

    • Hz, Octave, dB, ms: These display formats are tailored to various DSP functions.

    • bpm: An offset of 50 is added to the fader value. This displays the correct tempo settings for the Special > Tempo Control fader.

    If none of the above formats is suitable, consider using a text style fader, and entering the display values you want as text. Examples include percentages, note names, and program names.
