Effect type or vendor-specific effect name. Varies across SFZ players.
ARIA Extensions #
In the PC version of ARIA, the MDA effects are bundled. That means that under the ‹effect› header, any of these effect types can be set.
com.mda.Limiter com.mda.Overdrive com.mda.Leslie com.mda.RingMod com.mda.Delay com.mda.Bandisto com.mda.Ambience com.mda.DubDelay com.mda.Detune com.mda.Dither com.mda.Combo com.mda.Degrade com.mda.SubSynth com.mda.RezFilter
Also see param_offset for how to configure the parameters for these effects in ARIA. The order of the parameters is the same as at the plugin version of the MDA effects. These effects are not part of the SFZ engine, so it is not possible to, for example, have one MIDI CC parameter control two parameters in the same effect, or use custom curves. Example usage below:
<control> set_cc300=64 set_cc301=127 <effect> param_offset=300 type=com.mda.Overdrive
Cakewalk implementation #
In Cakewalk, each of the effect types has its own set of opcodes controlling its parameters. Here is a list of what is currently known.
The effect routing logic in Rapture is as follows:
Automatic panning with LFO:
Multi-purpose delay line:
Asymmetric distorsion with tone control:
Equalizer (Same opcode meanings as ordinary EQ):
(Same opcode meanings as ordinary filter):
No opcodes for this type.
Bit depth reducer and decimator combined:
Present in some Cakewalk products only, undocumented.
Dual-notch phaser with LFO:
Static noise generator:
Sympathetic resonance with waveguide synthesis:
Impulse response convolver:
Note that the Cakewalk book has some typos in opcode names, such as
(capital letter) or
On this site, non-working effect types mentioned in the book were replaced with tested
ones. For example,
autopan does not appear to work in any Cakewalk product, while
apan works. Same for
disto instead of
