There, you'll learn how to mix your RiffWorks song to a .wav file, perfect for burning to a CD, or using a third party plug-in like iTunes to convert to mp3. Or choose to mix to an Ogg file. Or choose Mix to Riff, which allows you to turn an entire RiffWorks song into a single new Riff. See advanced techniques in the the manual for more tips than the ones below.RiffWorks Standard allows you to EXPORT individual Riffs from your songs as WAV files for use in other RiffWorks Songs, and for use in other DAWs like GarageBand, Pro Tools, and more. - Export Riffs within RiffWorks (.rwr)Export Riffs from your current RiffWorks Standard song to import into other RiffWorks songs.

- Import from Other DAWs into RiffWorksRifWorks does not currently import files created in other DAWs. This is a feature we would like to add properly in a future release (support for multiple file types, a UI for trimming to the length of the riff, etc.), so stay tuned.Sonoma Wire Works does not test or support utilities by third party developers, like atalwar's intelliriffer (discontinued), and is not responsible for problems that may result from the use of those products.Wave importer tool (Python script) for Mac OSX by sick1982 is also not tested or supported by the Sonoma Wire Works team, and may not be tested by the developer using the current version of RiffWorks, so Sonoma does not recommend using it.

Available in RiffWorks recording software, Attaq is the ultimate Auto-wah filter effect. You can create a classic, fixed wah tone; a responsive envelope wah; and even a custom tempo-synched wah sequence. Attaq is all of the best wah effects in one! There are three different ways to use Attaq, each with some different controls. These modes are called MANUAL, ENVELOPE and SEQUENCE. The MANUAL mode doesn't change while you play. It is like leaving your wah pedal in one position to bring out a great constant tone. This effect can be dramatic. The ENVELOPE mode behaves like a classic envelope wah stomp box. As you play harder the wah morphs into a completely different tone. Try playing softly with an occasional hard note that you want to emphasize. The wah opens up on that note to give you a great touch sensitive tone. The SEQUENCE mode is certainly the most unique. In this mode, you can actually change the tone of the wah with the beat of the music. You can get everything from smoothly varying tone over several measures to fast syncopated beats rupturing out of your guitar chords. This is by far the most configurable mode. Now that you understand that Attaq is really 3 different wah effects, let's get into how to control the tone for each one. MANUAL Mode:Set the MODE control to MANUAL. Now, turn the RANGE knob. The RANGE knob is equivalent to your wah pedal position. Turn it up to open up the sound and turn it down to close it off. Unlike a standard wah pedal, there's still a lot of tweaking you can do. Try increasing the BANDWIDTH knob to sharpen up the tone. You can change it from subtle to downright gnarly just by playing with this knob. You can also change the style of wah using the FILTER knob. The three filter choices are Lowpass (LP), Bandpass (BP), and Highpass (HP). What do these mean? Lowpass lets all the lower frequencies through like a classic wah pedal. Listen [add preset name]. Bandpass actually cuts out the low and high frequencies, only allowing a small band of frequencies through. You can use this to accentuate a particular range of notes. Listen [add preset name]. Highpass actually cuts out all the low frequencies leaving only the nasally highs. You can get some crazy sounds out of this filter. Listen [add preset name]. The SENSITIVITY and orange SEQUENCE controls have no impact with this mode. ENVELOPE Mode:The RANGE, BANDWIDTH, and FILTER controls behave like the MANUAL mode, but an extra knob completely changes the tone and feeling of this effect. The ENVELOPE mode listens to how hard you play and changes its position accordingly. Play soft and it will sound like you have your wah pedal all the way closed, but snap a hard note and hear those filters open up. RANGE controls the filter position when you are playing soft, but the SENSITIVITY knob controls the position when you are playing hard. You can play with RANGE and SENSITIVIY to control where and how much that wah filter is going to open up for your style of playing. If it sounds like your filter is always wide open, turn down the SENSITIVITY until you get that nice touch sensitive tone. If the effect doesn't sound too different from what you had in the MANUAL mode, try turning up the sensitivity to get it to open up wide when you play a hard note. Listen [add preset name]. The orange SEQUENCE controls have no impact with this mode. SEQUENCE Mode:The RANGE, BANDWIDTH, and FILTER controls behave the same as the above modes. Instead of using sensitivity to control the position of the wah, you can use eight step sequencer knobs that step in time with your riff. The sequence controls are all in the orange section of Attaq. The STEPS buttons set the number of distinct steps you want to use in the sequence. You can select 4, 6, or 8 depending on how complex you want the sequence to be. The 8 smaller SEQUENCE knobs to the left are used to set up the wah position for that moment in time. The light above each knob shows you the current wah position as it cycles. For example, if you want to open up the wah a little more at that point in time, turn up the corresponding knob. Strum a chord and listen to your sequence go by. Listen [add preset name]. The SEQUENCE knobs are relative to your RANGE and control. You can completely change the tone of your sequence without having to change every knob. If you like the sequence, but want it to be higher, just increase the RANGE control. Listen [add preset name]. The SPEED control changes the pace at which the sequencer runs. Turn the knob up to speed up your sequence. Listen [add preset name]. Below the SPEED knob is a TEMPOSYNC button. This allows you to sync the speed of your sequence to the tempo of your Riff using beat quantities like quarter, eighth, or sixteenth notes. 2b1af7f3a8
