    Is this weird or age? KP2

    A silly question, but looking at the KP2 player I see three turning knobs.
    One for tuning and the other two below. I cannot find the meaning of those turnable knobs, what do they do and why?

    Raymond - and somebody will answer that there are no silly questions

    Vibrato Rate Offset is for setting the minimum vibrato rate. In other words, the vibrato rate for zero Aftertouch.

    PB Vibrato Inhibit Threshold is for preventing vibrato on rapid pitchbends (PB). Lower values will inhibit vibrato on lesser pitchbends, while higher values will allow vibrato to persist.

    All of you, dear forum friends,

    thanks again..... And indeed for a violin there should have been 4 knobs.
    As I understood well, that last one is for preventing vibrato with short pitch changes, with other words: when there is fast bowing (is the jazz term: fast riffs?)

    Raymond - experimenting with knobs (uuhuhuhuhuh?!)

    I did some experimenting and indeed it works!!!!!
    But only after being aware of the effects.
    Before that I couldn't hear any difference, but didn't know where to listen to.

    Thanks again, one step further for getting a good Romance for Violin and Orchestra.

    Raymond
