  3. Click on the tab with the play icon, then on the circled value next to the ‘Quantize’ option. Then, choose the number of beats corresponding to the quantization you want. ‘Global’ means that the quantize value of the selected sample is the same as the sample pack’s overall quantize value.

– Decay time (D): duration from the initial maximum amplitude to a stable state amplitude
– Sustain time (S): duration and level of the steady state amplitude
– Release time (R) duration from the steady state to its final zero amplitude
