is it possible to modulate the pitch in polysynth to get a plucky sound at the beginning of a sound? if so how?

Trick 1 within polysynth

Yes it is. There are 2 envelopes you can use The one i put a square box around is called FEG = Filter Envelope generator. Press it and then boost or attenuate desired knobs

This is the same envelope as the adsr for the filter but can modulate other sources like

Pitch of osc1

Pitch of psc2

Or modulate the global pitch for both oscillators in the mix section

Below FEG you Have AEG which also can be used. This is insted the Amp envelope generator. So it is the same envelope for the volumes adsr.

Trick 2 Using note mode

You can also use a note mode for more envelopes. Open note mod like thisalt text

Now press on the fx button on the note mode, then drag polysynth into the section that unfolded just like in this picture alt text Last step, now the polysynth is nested within the device, allows us to use the parameters from note mod on polysynth. Like in picture below in the red squared box i marked red, it is for env ADSR from note mode. So by pressing ENV you can modulate anything nested in FX of note mode. alt text

Hope this has been to some help! Dont forget to check the manual for help by going to top of bitwig and press help, guide in english!

Take care..
