  • Top DCA EG is for main osc/OP/carrier A, and defines overall DCA/note length.
  • Lower DCA is for modulator OP B.
  • Pitch env has no effect unless switched on, and assigned ‘amount’, – or + (green buttons).
  • Filter (DCF) has full ADSR envelope. single or double serial operation (4 modes per stage).
  • Dual assignable keyscaling (-/+).
