The Start Screen
The first screen you'll see when you open up Haptrix. The top bar contains your tools, the main window with the grid lines is where you can design your Core Haptics. At the bottom is your timeline where you can easily view your events. On the right is the Inspector, when you select different events, the Inspector changes to match the context.
Using Transients with Core Haptics
Transient Events are probably the most well known Haptic, when your phone rings, you can feel a tapping sensation. In Haptrix, we've made adding Transient Events super easy, Select the Transient Tool, click and drag to place it. You can then easily adjust the Intensity & Sharpness in the Inspector. Different colors in the Designer help visualize the chosen settings
Continuous Events with Core Haptics
Continuous Haptic Events are a constant vibration for a longer duration than a Transient Event.
Overlapping Continuous Events with Core Haptics
Something special happens when you overlap two or more Continuous Events, the section at which they overlap interpolate between their values, to create a high-to-low rumbling sensation. If you overlap two Continuous Events, play with the Intensity of their values to see a visualisation of how it will feel.
Attack, Decay, Sustain & Release with Core Haptics
Core Haptics have an ADSR curve, if you really want to find tune your Haptic, you can use these to set the lead-in and fall-off for your vibrations.
Importing & Sequencing Audio to use in Core Haptics
A Fantastic feature of Haptrix allows you to quickly import Audio and optionally add a Transient Event on detectable beats, which saves you from doing it manually. AutoTrace creates a Parameter Curve over your Audio. This allows you to use one of the Parameter Curve settings to adjust the Haptic over time, again saving you time.
