 +==== Tutorial ====
  
 +**How to setup some basic patches from scratch. The examples are designed for the Microwave II/XT, but should also work (with some minor changes) on the Microwave I.**
 +
 +This is a short excerpt from the book by Uwe G. Hoenig - "​Microwave in der Praxis"​ \\
 +(ISBN 978-3-932275-26-5)
 +
 +=== Bass ===
 +
 +
 +== Sweep-Bass ==
 +
 +First, all parameters are reset to reasonable start values with "Init Sound V1.1"​.\\
 +The Oscillators Octave is switched to -1, because we want to play bass, don't we?\\
 +Startwave should be sawtooth on both waves.
 +A detune -7 / +7 gives a nice [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Beat_(acoustics)|beat]].
 +
 +  * Oscillators
 +    * Octave Parameter = -1 / -1
 +    * Startwave = 63 / 63
 +    * Detune = -7 / +7
 +
 +The filter cutoff frequency is first set to zero, and then will be controlled by the Envelope Amount at full range.\\
 +A decay of approximately 65 and sustain equal 0 produces the desired sweep.
 +
 +  * Filter & Filter Envelope
 +    * Filter 1 Cutoff = 0
 +    * Filter 1 Cutoff Envelope Amount = +63
 +    * Filter 1 Sustain = 0
 +    * Filter 1 Decay = 65
 +
 +To make the sound a bit more interesting,​ the following values are entered:
 +
 +  * Quality
 +    * Time Quantization = 5
 +  * Mixer
 +    * Wave 1 Level = 70
 +    * Wave 2 Level = 70
 +
 +And finally, here comes the most important parameter:
 +
 +  * Filter
 +    * Filter 1 Resonance = 80
 +
 +That's it, we programmed our first patch! Although it sounds a bit dump, it is perfectly suited as a basis for some more sophisticated ones.
 +
 +== Moog-Bass ==
 +
 +(Based on the Sweep-Bass patch above)

 +  * Filter Envelope ​
 +    * Filter 1 Attack = 0

 +  * Amplitude Envelope ​
 +    * Attack = 0
 +
 +  * Filter ​
 +    * Filter 1 Decay = 16
 +    * Filter 1 Sustain = 70
 +    * Filter 1 Cutoff Envelope Amount = +47
 +
 +Optional:
 +    * Octave Parameter for Osc1 / Osc2:  0 / -1
 +    * Startwave 62 (square)
 +
 +== Dub-Bass ==

 +    * Filter 1 Cutoff Envelope Amount = +24

 +    * Detune 0 / 0
 +
 +  * Mixer
 +    * Wave 1 Level = 100
 +    * Wave 2 Level = 0
 +
 +Optional:
 +
 +  * Filter ​
 +    * Filter 1 Resonance < 110
 +    * Filter 1 Resonance = 127 -> Keytracking +100%    ​
 +    * Volume / Filter Release < 47

 +  * Allocation Mode Monophonic

 +== WaveScan-Bass ==
 +
 +  * General Settings
 +    * Startwave = 0
 +    * WaveTable = 46 (//Heavy Fuzz//)
 +    * Filter Envelope [000,​030,​048,​008]
 +    * Wave 2 Link = YES
 +  * Modifier Settings
 +    * Mod 1 Source = Filter Envelope
 +    * Mod 1 Destination = Wave 1 Position
 +    * Amount = +40

 +      * 047

 +=== Pads ===
 +
 +== Sweep Saw Pad ==
 +
 +Two sawtooth waves slightly cross tuned, filtered and amplified with a smooth envelope – simple, boring and effective.
 +
 +  * Waves
 +    * Startwave = 63 / 63 (sawtooth)
 +  * Oscillators
 +    * Detune = -6 / +6
 +  * Volume Envelope ​
 +    * ADSR [050,​060,​060,​040]
 +  * Filter
 +    * Type = 12dB Low Pass
 +    * Cutoff = 60
 +    * Resonance = 40
 +    * Keytrack = +50%
 +  * Filter Envelope
 +    * Cutoff Env Amount = +10 -> Sweep
 +    * ADSR [070,​070,​040,​060]
 +
 +Optional
 +
 +    * Cutoff Env Amount = 0
 +    * Env Velocity Amount = +30
