Input – Setup the incoming channel to your mic or built-in mic
Threshold – Sets the volume threshold for the input audio start/end detection. After a recording is finished, the beginning and end points of the recorded sample will be cropped to the first recorded sample that crosses above the set input volume threshold. This threshold also applies to any dropped samples!
G – When enabled, recording starts when input signal crosses a volume threshold, and stops when it’s audio ceases. It is recommended you tube autosave off in the Recording Settings
Q – When enabled, recording start and stop on the next beat according global quantization
Norm – When enabled, recorded and dropped samples are normalized
Show save settings (Disk Icon) – Turn Autosave on/off and set the autosave folder which will automatically save every recording.
Start – Start position of loop in ms
Size – Set the loop length in ms
xFade – The amount of fade/crossfade (crossfade if looping is on) at the start/end points of the loop
Mono – Switch between polyphonic/monophonic modes
Drag Waveform (Hand Icon) – Enables dragging of the waveform display instead of moving loop points
Sample Display – Waveform of buffer sample. When drag (hand) mode is not enabled, dragging controls the loop points. Up/down change the length while left/right changes position.
Buffer Size – Sets the size of the buffer. BEWARE resizing will delete all the current samples in buffer. However, resizing does not take affect until the record button is pressed.

R – Mod Envelope Release
Pan – Master Panning
LFO – Amount of LFO affecting global panning
Env Mod – Amount of Mod envelope affecting global panning
LFO – Amount of LFO affecting global volume
Vel – Amount of velocity sensitivity affecting global volume
Global Output Volume – Set the overall output volume
