Examples:

A Band Size of 1 and Skip Size of zero will have the entire effect on.

A Band Size of 2 and Skip Size of 1 will have half the effect on for two units and off for one unit.

This defines the relative value of the number of units that the effect will skip before turning on. A value of zero will force the effect to be stationary in one position.
