The Basic Concepts Of “Bliss”


Bliss has 64 notes polyphony by default. This number can be changed by clicking the LCD above the POLYPHONY label. A drop down menu will appear with the number of notes to enable. Select the desired number. Be aware that more voices use more CPU power.


Bliss displays two main LCDs. The top one contains the name of the currently selected program in the bank and the bottom one the name of the currently-selected zone in the program. Clicking ALL will enable or disable editing all zone parameters at once (global edit). Clicking the EDIT button will open the sample editor.


Programs or zones can be browsed by clicking the arrows in the LCD or by clicking its name to display a drop down menu. Using CTRL / Command on Mac will open the import dialog window directly and using SHIFT + click on < / > buttons in the zone selector will select the previous / next sample in the same directory as the current sample.


To have finer control of parameter adjustments, hold SHIFT key while moving. Double click resets the control to its default position.


Pitch bender allows you to change the pitch of the current patch in real-time. You can modify the pitch bend range to be from 1 to 24 semitones up and down.


  • MONO – 1 voice of the sampler is used. In this mode any note played will discontinue the previous one.
  • LEGATO – A monophonic mode in which envelopes are not restarted when new keys are played.
  • POLY – Polyphonic mode allows multiple notes to be played at once.


The glide knob glides the pitch between the current note and a newly played note. The higher the value, the slower the transition progresses.


Below the MASTER label there is a knob where gain can be set.


The overall Bliss setup can be found by clicking the icon in the top-left corner.


Bank /program and zone edit functions can be found by clicking the downwards-pointing arrows to the right of the program and zone names.


A Bliss bank contains 128 programs each, divided into zones, each with independent parameters such as ADSR, LFO, Filter, Effects, Cue and Loop points.

All zone parameters are edited at once by default, but this behavior can be changed by disabling Global Edit from the Bliss Options menu or using the right mouse button with the knobs, buttons or drop down menus.


Bliss supports the listed MIDI messages described below:

  • Program change, modulation wheel and pitch bend.
  • Sustain pedal (CC64), gain (CC7), pan (CC10) and balance (CC8 > stereo rotation).
  • Macros mapped from CC102 (Macro1) to CC109 (Macro8).

Take Complete Control Of Your Sound With Envelopes, Morphing & Macros!


Morphing is a secondary parameter state that changes with MIDI Note velocity if the Velocity slider value (below the MORPH button) is higher than zero, or with the MIDI Modulation wheel. Setting up is very easy by clicking MORPH button located in the MASTER section.

Once it’s on, knob parameters will be able to be changed in a bipolar way, that is positively or negatively from the existing knob parameter position. The amount can be set up by clicking and dragging the Velocity slider located below the MORPH button. It’s like a velocity curve, but affecting parameters which have been modified with morphing.

  • A Morph slider value of 0%, there is no change from the knob position.
  • A Morph slider value of 50% and a note velocity of 10, there is a small change.
  • A Morph slider value of 50% and a note velocity of 100, there is a larger change.
  • A Morph slider value of 100% and a note velocity of 127, there is the maximum change, to the Morph position.


Bliss has 8 macro knobs assignable to any of over 100 Bliss parameters. A macro can have its own name, as well as modulate several destinations at once each with different ranges for each destination parameter. To access the macro controls, click the MACRO label in the Envelope title bar or navigate using the < > arrows contained on the same bar.

Configuring a macro is very easy. Click any EDIT button below and a dialog box will then appear for setting it up. Macro destination parameters can be then added by using the Add button. A new Id will appear.

  • Name: Top text box with an editable name
  • ID: Macro destination ID number. This field can be clicked for selection and removal by using Remove button.
  • Zone: Destination Zone can be a specific zone or all zones.
  • Parameter: Destination Parameter selectable from a drop-down list.
  • Min: Minimum range. This field can be clicked to input a numerical value or set by clicking and dragging the mouse left/right.
  • Max: Maximum range. This field can be clicked to input a numerical value or set by clicking and dragging the mouse left/right.

Once the macro has been configured, clicking the X button will apply all the changes.


Every zone has an independent Amplitude envelope, able to change the sound and also modulate two different parameters and a Modulation envelope, able to modulate two different parameters. The other difference in the Modulation envelope is that MIDI Velocity does not affect the ADSR Amount.

  • Attack: Controls the time that envelope moves from note press (0) to full volume. (Does not apply to legato mode).
  • Decay: This knob controls the time that the envelope moves from full volume (end of Attack) to Sustain level.
  • Sustain: Sets the point at which the envelope stays while note is held. This state is held until the note is release.
  • Release: Once the note is released, this knob will control the time in which the gain will fall from current envelope level (Sustain) into complete silence.
  • Amount: ADSR amount that will be applied.
  • Velocity: Amount of MIDI velocity affecting ADSR Amount. 0% will apply max values to all notes. 100% applies from a range of 0 to 100%.
  • Destinations: ADSR envelope can also be applied to more additional parameters with a different amount, such as: Amplitude, Pitch, Filter 1/2 Frequency / Resonance / Drive, LFO 1 / 2 Rate or Loop Start / End points.

A Powerful Sampling Engine With Unique VSTi Recording Capabilities!


Every Bliss zone contains a sample that can be edited by opening the Sample Editor. Click the EDIT button to the right of the Zone name LCD. The sample Editor will open in a separate window or inside the GUI, depending on how it’s configured at ☰ > Interface > Options > Open Sample Editor in Window.

Some load/save functions are duplicated to maintain a better workflow. The Window is divided into three parts:

  • Menu and Zone parameters – Top area containing editing functions including zone Gain, Panning, Tuning (Coarse, Fine-tune, Key Cents), Tempo Sync, Loop Type, Group Off and Key Range / Root.
  • Zone List – Left area to navigate between all zones. Several can be selected and edited together by holding CTRL / Command on Mac and clicking their names.
  • Sample area – Right area displaying the waveform, cues and loop start / end points.

Applying changes to multiple zones in the editor can be done by selecting them individually on the Zone List using CTRL / Command on Mac + clicking their names or by selecting a consecutive set of zones by clicking the first and SHIFT-clicking the last.

Deleting a cue can be quickly made using SHIFT + click on its number. Both loop points can be dragged by holding CTRL / Command on Mac + mouse.


  • Auto / drum mapping when multiple files are opened at once.
  • Internal new program/bank formats with lossless encoding.
