lokey / hikey
Determine the high boundary of a certain region.
When a region only covers one note, it is generally more convenient to use
key instead of
lokey are used,
they will usually need to be used together with pitch_keycenter.
In the SFZ 1 specification, the allowed range is 0 to 127. However, SFZ 2 additionally includes the possibility to set lokey and hikey to -1, to prevent a region from being triggered by any keys. This is a way (though, admittedly, not a very elegant one) to use the on_loccN/onhiccN opcodes to trigger, for example, pedal noises which are triggered whether any keys are pressed or not.
<region> sample=*sine lokey=c5 hikey=c6
As with the key opcode, the values can also be MIDI note numbers:
<region> sample=*sine lokey=72 hikey=84
When an instrument is sampled every minor third, this kind of usage will be common:
<region> sample=a4.wav lokey=68 hikey=70 pitch_keycenter=69 <region> sample=c5.wav lokey=71 hikey=73 pitch_keycenter=72 <region> sample=eb5.wav lokey=74 hikey=76 pitch_keycenter=75
