The Mimic command allows the user to apply dynamic effects on adjacent tracks such as different types of echo. This would otherwise only be achievable through another Pattern.
The parameters provided allow a Time Delay, Pitch Offset and Volume Offset.
A Time delay permits the mimic track to replay the copied track moments after it playing.
|Time-Delay||0-3||0,7,11 or 15 Ticks behind Copied Track|
|Volume Offset||0-7||0,2,4,8,10,12,14,16 volume levels below Copied Track|
|Pitch Offset||0-7||0,4,8,12,16,20,24,28 Pitch values below Copied Track|
Mimic also permits mimicking a mimic because it only acts on the Tracks Pitch and Volume Resource. This makes it possible to have up to 7 other tracks mimicking the one track. With Time delay set to 3 this permits the last Mimic to delay the sound by 105 ticks.
