Drum Pads

There are 6 drum pads, each one linked to a track. They can operate in three different modes:

Drum Pad Mode can be set using the toolbar.

Toolbar

Meta-commands for various parts of Ton are organised here.

Step Sequencer

The step sequencer displays 1 bar at a time, divided into 16 steps.

It is possible to assign different parameter values to each step. This is called parameter locking and it's a quick and powerful way to add variation to any sequence: lock level or attack to simulate velocity, lock pitch to create melodies, or even lock different samples to different steps. Possibilities are endless.

See the toolbar to learn how to change sequence duration (1, 2 or 4 bars) and navigate between bars.

Sample Page

(See Navigation and Transport to learn how to display this page.)

This is where you choose what sample to play on the current track and adjust some of its characteristics.

Sample Manager

The sample manager is used to import samples and load them into a project. It is accessible via a button on the Sample Page.

Amplification Page

(See Navigation and Transport to learn how to display this page.)

An envelope is applied to a sample every time it plays. You also decide how much of the resulting sound will go through the master effects. Panning and track volume are also set here.

Master Page

(See Navigation and Transport to learn how to display this page.)

The master page contains parameters for tempo and global audio effects. Since these parameters are not tied to any track, they cannot be parameter-locked.

Pattern Page

(See Navigation and Transport to learn how to display this page.)
