Edit / Origin Feature
As soon as you start editing a Preset (i.e. change a MasterMagic control), the Edit button will light up. If you the click on the Origin button it will return the Preset to its original settings.
Clicking on the ? HELP ICON opens PDF manual.
Click here to open the ECS menu. You can Load/Save your MIDI latched settings (External Control Settings) here. This is handy if you want to use your own controller settings in other songs, music programs or systems.
Presets and Generic Controls
The Presets bar sits at the top of the MasterMagic window.
A Preset in MasterMagic has two slots, A and B, in which to store two variations of the Preset.
This bypasses the MasterMagic FX. If ‘Air’ and ‘Mono/Stereo’ are active, both are bypassed.
Air works as a booster of very high frequencies with a wide bandwidth using a top-notch algorithm. Its effect is perceived as giving the audio a more breathing space or ‘Air’.
- On/Off : By clicking on the AIR icon, the Air function will become active. This is a handy feature if you also have the ‘Mono/Stereo’ function active. This way you can bypass only the ‘Air’ FX.
- Amount : Amount sets the gain or amount of Air added to your channel.
- Frequency: The frequency control sets the center frequency of the Air band. Its range runs from 30kHz to 40 kHz.
Mono / Stereo
- The Mono / Stereo Split Filter is able to divide the audio signal into a mono and stereo part based on a frequency.
- On/Off By clicking on the MONO/STEREO Icon this function will become active.
- Frequency and Range The Frequency control (FREQ) sets the frequency of the mono filter: below this frequency the sound is transformed into a mono signal.
- Solo: The Solo switch, when engaged, only lets the transformed mono signal pass.This feature is handy to seek out the correct range.
- Mode : The Mode setting determines how the stereo audio signal is turned into a mono signal. The options here are: Left Channel, Right Channel, the sum of the Left and Right Channels averaged (L+R), and the signal difference between the two channels (L-R).
A click on the MasterMagic logo switches the plug-in to its back panel. The back panel contains program information and a number of global settings.
- Computer Keyboard On/Off : The Keyboard On/Off switch activates the computer keyboard to cycle through the Presets and Banks.
- MIDI Program Change : The Program Change switch enables MasterMagic to respond to MIDI Program Change commands to select Presets.
- External MIDI Control Capture Mode: The Capture Mode switch, when enabled will ignore incoming MIDI controller messages that are latched to a MasterMagic control, until the value of the MIDI controller matches that of the value of the MasterMagic control. It prevents sudden jumps in parameter values that otherwise may occur as soon as you touch a latched external MIDI controller.
- MIDI Channel : The MIDI Channel setting limits any MIDI control of MasterMagic to a specific MIDI Channel (1 – 16 / Omni)
