mQ knobs pro
Sound editor software for the Waldorf microQ


Why should I buy the "pro" version of mQknobs?

The pro version 3.0 has much more features than the freeware version:
- Sound request feature "reads" sounds from the microQ
- Full FX support with reverb library (store your own reverb defaults or use the presets)
- Modmatrix support (4 standard modifiers, 4 fast modifiers, 4 modifiers - all on one screen!)
- Arpeggiator support with graphical pattern aid and all parameters on one screen! Also a pattern library is included, that lets you use any pattern in any sound.
- Drummapper for quick and easy creation of drummaps
- Sound import and export for common SYX format
- Sound naming feature
- Random sound generator with different levels (from subtile change to total change)
- noise generator support
- full FM support
- keytrack feature
- bendrange settings
- full LFO 1-3 support
- octave change (+/-) for all OSCs at once
- Amplifier volume and velocity settings
- Envelope presets for quick results

- Env3 + Env4 support
- better knob handling with two useradjustable speed modes (fast/slow change with [Shift] key)
- Amplifier and pitch modulation
- ... and many more optimizations

Due a bug in the Win2000 SP2 and WinXP multimedia engine any mQknobs version does not recognize the external keyboard when used with this OS. This means in most cases (there are some exceptions but I do not know why and when) you can not play your sounds on the keyboard while programming sounds with mQknobs when you have Win2000 SP2 or WinXP installed. (Though there is a "softkeyboard" in mQknobs that enables you to play some notes via mouse. Also in many cases you can run another sequencersoftware to use an external keyboard but actually this is not recommended. Other Windows versions (i.e. Win98 and even Win2000 without servicepack 2) work fine. I do not know if and when this problem can be fixed - I tried a lot already and had to give up for the moment.
