Only operational for stereo samples, width defines the amount of channel mixing applied to play the sample.

A width value of 0 makes a stereo sample play as if it were mono (adding both channels and compensating for the resulting volume change). A value of 100 will make the stereo sample play as original.

Any value in between will mix left and right channels with a part of the other, resulting in a narrower stereo field image.

Negative width values will reverse left and right channels.

Examples #

width=100 // stereo
width=0   // play this stereo sample as mono
width=50  // mix 50% of one channel with the other
