Example: I am working on a song where when you switch to the Chorus a filter sweeps open. I would like to assign a widget to the filter cutoff, have the filter closed during the verse, open during the chorus. But instead of widget snapping from 0 to 100 I could set a smoothing time – almost like an attack time – so that the widget has to glide to the new value. If I set to 1000 ms then the slope of the widget can never exceed 1000 ms / 100 units. When I change the widget from 100 to 0 it ramps down at the same slope.
Normally when you switch variations you want settings to change instantly, but for many of my widgets I would always set to a quick ramp so the change is not so harsh. In the example above I would set to a slow ramp. This setting would fit nicely on the “Value” tab.
