Using the volume controls

The amplifier section is where we control the output level and the shape of the volume of the sound. So the first thing we'll want to take a look at is this Master Volume control here. This is just going to be the output level. So if I play a note and I bring this down, it just decreases the volume. (music playing) So this is just a volume knob. The next thing that is actually very important in terms of distinguishing the characteristic of the sound is this Decay parameter. So decay is basically a very simplified envelope. What that means is that once the signal reaches its maximum amplitude, or its maximum volume, it's how long it takes for it to fade out, to go back down into silence.

So if I have a very short decay time, it's going to fade out very quickly. If I have a long decay time, like I have it set now, the note will just sustain forever. So if I play a note, it stays the same volume as long as I hold it. If I move this Decay parameter over to the left, so I give it s...
