Creating a Normal Voice

This section describes in detail the procedure for Step 5 on

Open the Element window by clicking the button for the Element to which you
wish to assign Waves.


Assign Waves to that Element.


Click the Add Wave button q in the Wave Assign menu.

Depending on the instrument to which the Pack is to be installed, the length of Waves that can be played back may be limited.
