Tweak's Emulator Tips
Translation difficulties going
ESi format (3.0x)
to EOS format (4.x)
Here is how to quickly correct
the preset in EOS
1. Whenever an ESi preset uses the HOLD
parameter in its AHDSR envelope with SUSTAIN set to zero (as in the case of
gated drums) the envelope will not sound in EOS. The quick solution to
this problem is to raise SUSTAIN to 100% in the EOS envelope and set RELEASE
Rates to taste, usually zero. You also may most close resemble a drum gate using
the ATK 2 and DCY 1 parameters which the ESi does not have.
2. The modifier DELAY is misinterpreted
by EOS to being much longer than intended. A few presets in Ice Kold Tekno
and the Mystik Garage use the delay parameter to give a fast Stereo sweep.
This delay is interpreted by EOS to be 1-2 seconds.
3. EOS will take every Esi preset and run it
though a cord #1 where VEL< (or negative velocity) =AMP VOL. To hear the
preset as intended, change this cord to VEL> or positive velocity. Usually
the preset will still sound fine if you don't change it, it will just be at a
slightly reduced volume.
