Using the Morph Feature as a Built in Calculator


MORF as built-in envelope calculator

     Hi all! 

     What about using the MORF feature to calculate DHE rates from given times? 

     It seems that you can set "anchor points" in MORF mode on a time scale, execute
     the morf, change back to DHE mode and see the results on a "rate scale", but it's
     not clear to me if this really solves the rate/time conversion problem. 

     Is the MORF time scale a "real" time scale? 

     Another problem seems to be that you have individual level values, taken from
     the selected morf sources, for each harmonic, but only one common time value for
     all harmonics. So you may have to make many morf calculations and combine the results
     somehow if the time values are harmonic-dependent. 

     Anyone with experiences?

     It seems to me that the MORF time scale is a "real" time scale, and that it DOES
     solve the rate/time conversion problem. To the extent that I have been able to
     test it, the rates are set so that the implicit "time load" of changing levels is
     taken into account. In fact, if you let one harmonic have the same value from one
     time slice to the next, it will even take care to set the corresponding levels in
     the HLE to two different values in order to avoid the skipping of stages that
     occurs when subsequent levels have the same value.

     But there appear to be some bugs in the MORF function. In particular, the
     Harmonics Levels of the MORFing source are sometimes set correctly, sometimes not.
     This will be corrected in the next version of the OS, I am sure...

     And it's a hassle that you have to save the sources before you execute the MORF.
     I wish the K5000 would read the sources being edited rather than the old version
     in flash memory.

     At least, the rate/time thing seems to be handled satisfactorily by the MORF function.
