Factory Presets: In-App Sounds



Below is a description of each of the Factory Presets that include an In-App Instrument sound.

You can switch between these factory presets via the Presets Tab (Main Menu).

If you are using the Single-Key version of the Motion Synth App, you will be able to play through a melodic sequence using these sounds. The melody is set by each Factory Preset, but you can also switch to a different melody.

If you are using the Multi-key version of the Motion Synth App (in combination with Motion Synth Grip), you will be able to play notes directly via the grid of keys on the Key Screen.

Using the Multi-key version, you can also change the default octave and scale of these notes in the Notes Tab (Main Menu), as well as turning Octave Control on or off.

You can also modify these Factory Presets and then save copies of them as new custom presets as explained here.

More info on In-App Sounds is available here.


Factory Preset List:


1 • In-App Sounds | Orchestra | Touch, Octave, Instruments

This preset uses Up-Down or Left-Right motion to control the volume and timbre of an orchestra ensemble.

However, the amount of influence Up-Down or Left-Right motion has on volume and timbre has been set deliberately low to allow the user to experiment first with tapping out a melody via the Key Screen without requiring movement to hear the sound.

The MIDI note range (60 = C4 = 440 Hz) of the instrument sound is: 0 to 127 (some of the ensemble sounds have shorter ranges).

This preset also includes Octave Control.


This preset also uses Forearm Rotation to control the instrumentation of the orchestra ensemble. With your forearm horizontal to the ground, as you rotate your forearm counter-clockwise such that your palm is turned to face upwards you will hear more instruments joining the ensemble, making the sound 'thicker'. Rotating your forearm clockwise the other way will reverse this change.

This preset also uses the Color Control module to change the Key Screen color via touch and the intensity of the color based on Up-Down or Left-Right motion.

If you would like to reduce the responsiveness of this sound for a smoother pad-like effect, find the first (at the top) Send CC MIDI module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu) and increase its Smoothing of Output (%) value. Changing the Reverb level in the Notes Tab (Main Menu) may also be an effective compliment to this.




2 • In-App Sounds | Orchestra | Preset 1 + Motion-to-Sound

This preset is identical to preset 1, except that Up-Down or Left-Right motion has complete control over the volume and timbre of the orchestra instruments.




3 • In-App Sounds | Orchestra | Preset 2 + Solo Piano

This preset is identical to preset 2, except that Forearm Rotation allows a solo piano sound to be played. With your forearm horizontal to the ground, as you rotate your forearm clockwise such that your thumb is pointing towards the ground you will hear all the orchestra instruments fade to silence and are replaced by a piano sound. Rotating your forearm counter-clockwise the other way will reverse this change.




4 • In-App Sounds | Clarinet | Motion-to-Sound

This preset uses Up-Down or Left-Right motion to control the volume and timbre of a clarinet sound.

The MIDI note range (60 = C4 = 440 Hz) of the instrument sound is: 48 to 95.

Note that the volume and timbre of this sound is much more responsive to Up-Down or Left-Right motion than the orchestral instrument used in presets 1-3.

This preset also includes Octave Control.

This preset also uses the Color Control module to change the Key Screen color via touch and the intensity of the color based on Up-Down or Left-Right motion. You can configure or remove the Color Control module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu).

If you would like to reduce the responsiveness of this sound for a smoother pad-like effect, find the first (at the top) Send CC MIDI module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu) and increase its Smoothing of Output (%) value. Changing the Reverb level in the Notes Tab (Main Menu) may also be an effective compliment to this.

If you would like to be able to slide pitch between notes triggered on the Key Screen, add a Motion Legato module to the Motion Tab (Main Menu).




5 • In-App Sounds | Flute | Motion-to-Sound

This preset uses Up-Down or Left-Right motion to control the volume and timbre of a flute sound.

The MIDI note range (60 = C4 = 440 Hz) of the instrument sound is: 48 to 96.

Note that the volume and timbre of this sound is much more responsive to Up-Down or Left-Right motion than the orchestral instrument used in presets 1-3.

This preset also includes Octave Control.

This preset also uses the Color Control module to change the Key Screen color via touch and the intensity of the color based on Up-Down or Left-Right motion. You can configure or remove the Color Control module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu).

If you would like to reduce the responsiveness of this sound for a smoother pad-like effect, find the first (at the top) Send CC MIDI module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu) and increase its Smoothing of Output (%) value. Changing the Reverb level in the Notes Tab (Main Menu) may also be an effective compliment to this.

If you would like to be able to slide pitch between notes triggered on the Key Screen, add a Motion Legato module to the Motion Tab (Main Menu).




6 • In-App Sounds | Choir | Motion-to-Sound, Extra Voices

This preset uses Up-Down or Left-Right motion to control the volume and vowel characteristic of a choir sound.

The MIDI note range (60 = C4 = 440 Hz) of the instrument sound is: 48 to 84.

This preset also includes Octave Control.

This preset also uses the Octave Duplicate module to add additional notes one octave above and below each note triggered via the Key Screen. The Octave Duplicate translates Forearm Rotation values into note volume levels (MIDI note-on velocities) for the octave duplicate notes (the notes one octave above and below).

This preset also uses the Color Control module to change the Key Screen color via touch and the intensity of the color based on Up-Down or Left-Right motion. You can configure or remove the Color Control module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu).

If you would like to reduce the responsiveness of this sound for a smoother pad-like effect, find the first (at the top) Send CC MIDI module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu) and increase its Smoothing of Output (%) value. Changing the Reverb level in the Notes Tab (Main Menu) may also be an effective compliment to this.




7 • In-App Sounds | Bass | Motion-to-Sound, Motion Legato (Multi-Key version only)

This preset uses Up-Down or Left-Right motion to control the volume of a synth bass sound.

The MIDI note range (60 = C4 = 440 Hz) of the instrument sound is: 0 to 103.

Note that the volume of this sound is much more responsive to Up-Down or Left-Right motion than the orchestral instrument used in presets 1-3.

This preset also includes Octave Control.

This preset also uses the Color Control module to change the Key Screen color via touch and the intensity of this color based on Up-Down or Left-Right motion. You can configure or remove the Color Control module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu).

This preset also uses the Motion Legato module to allow pitch shifting between notes triggered via the Key Screen. This inclusion of the Motion Legato module in the Motion Tab (Main Menu) forces this sound to be monophonic (only one note can be played at a time). Removing or deactivating the Motion Legato module will cause this sound to become polyphonic (more than one note at a time).

If you would like to reduce the responsiveness of this sound for a smoother pad-like effect, find the first (at the top) Send CC MIDI module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu) and increase its Smoothing of Output (%) value. Changing the Reverb level in the Notes Tab (Main Menu) may also be an effective compliment to this.




8 • In-App Sounds | Guitar | Left-Right Orientation, Motion Legato (Multi-Key version only)

This preset uses Left-Right Orientation to control the volume of a clean electric guitar sound (left is low volume, right is high volume).

The MIDI note range (60 = C4 = 440 Hz) of the instrument sound is: 40 to 85.

This preset uses a narrow range of Left-Right Orientation for control (0-35 degrees). As explained in the description for Left-Right Orientation, this input type uses dynamic boundaries.

Upward and downward motion causes small pitch bends up and down respectively. Thus lightly shaking the forearm up and down while holding a note is an effective way of creating vibrato.

This preset also uses the Motion Legato module to allow pitch shifting between notes triggered via the Key Screen.

Rotate your forearm to approximately 0 degrees (as pictured above) to switch to Motion Legato mode. Touch one key, then another key (while holding the first), and then move left or right to pitch bend from the first to the second note. The speed of this bending is proportional to your speed of movement.

Rotate your forearm to approximately -90 degrees (as pictured above) to switch to the normal polyphonic mode. The switch between the legato and polyphonic modes occurs at -45 degrees.

If you would like to reduce the responsiveness of this sound for a smoother pad-like effect, find the first (at the top) Send CC MIDI module within the Motion Tab (Main Menu) and increase its Smoothing of Output (%) value. Changing the Reverb level in the Notes Tab (Main Menu) may also be an effective compliment to this.

This preset also includes Octave Control.
