volume

The volume for the region, in decibels.

Range is -144.6 to 6 in the specification, but many SFZ players can utilize values above 6. Sfz.dll, Rapture and Dimension have a +24 dB maximum, and ARIA has an upper limit of at least +144, perhaps even more.

Examples #

volume=-24
volume=0
volume=3.5

gain_cc1=12

This will play the sample at unchanged volume when CC1 is at 0, and apply a 12 dB boost when CC1 is at maximum.

gain_ccN/volume_onccN is useful for creating volume controls.

In Aria, either gain or volume can be used in modulations; however, gain by itself (for example gain=5) is not valid. For a fixed volume change wihtout modulation, only volume works.

Also see the ARIA extension amplitude_onccN for another way to do a simple volume control.
