The Grid Element

An element of the Grid is made of a Rack. To create elements, drag & drop Racks on the Grid. You’ll find a complete step by step chapter to build your first grid in the user's manual but here a first overview.

Depending of the Rack content, a right click will display possible automation controls in the list of curves tab of the The Settings Panel

Here, the Rack contains the Patch from the Usine library named Grain cloud FX and you can see we have activated some automation curves like the pitch values, and the grain parameter.

By this way we can adjust and control each automation curves/action for the selected parameter, you’ll notice the corresponding buttons in the contextual menu:

show Volume curve

By default Usine creates a volume curve for each grid element

show XXX curve

Each parameter you activate as an automation curve will create a corresponding button in the contextual menu

reset curve

Resets to the default value.
