The real fun with Timeless 2 starts with the incredible modulation options. Almost any
parameter can be modulated. These are called modulation targets. They can be
modulated by any of the available modulation sources: XY controllers, XLFOs, envelope
generators, envelope followers and MIDI
sources. The modulation signal always flows via a modulation slot that
allows you to vary the extent of modulation.
Use the Modulation button at the top to show or hide the entire modulation
section, which consists of the following elements:
Source selection bar
The source selection bar shows a schematic overview of all modulation sources at all times.
Simply click on a source button here to scroll the source into view. The highlighted section of
the bar shows the currently visible part, and it can be dragged to scroll the sources as well.
The top segment of each source button lights up according to the modulation signal it is
As said before: every modulation source uses a modulation slot to send its signal to the
target. Timeless 2 always groups all modulation slots above the source that they're connected
to. Each slot displays the destination, graphically shows the amount, and you can quickly turn
it on or off, or reverse its output.
The modulation sources are organized in a horizontally scrolling strip below the source
selection bar. There are 5 different kinds of sources available: The XLFO can generate almost any waveform you can imagine and can be synchronized
to the host tempo. The Envelope generator is of the usual ADSR kind and
triggered by audio or MIDI. The Envelope follower will follow the
loudness of the incoming audio or side-chain signal. The MIDI
source transforms any incoming MIDI data into a modulation signal. Finally, the XY controller lets you modulate two targets using horizontal and
vertical mouse movements.
To add a modulation source, click the + button in the source selection bar.
To delete a modulation source, click the remove button in the top right corner in the source
interface. When a source is deleted, modulation slots that use that source will also be
Tip: You can scroll the modulation source section with the mouse wheel. On
Windows, most mouse wheels only work vertically, but you can hold down the Ctrl and
Shift keys for horizontal scrolling in that case.
