USER memory. Once you disable Internal Write Protect, it will remain disabled until the XV-3080’s power is turned off. Saving Patches (PATCH WRITE) 1. Make sure that the Patch you wish to save is selected.
During initialization, only the copy is affected, not the version saved in memory. If you wish to restore all of the XV-3080’s settings to their factory values, including the memory locations in its SOUND LIBRARY, perform a Factory Reset. (p. 124)
When this is set ON, the data cannot be written. Data can be only written when Internal Write Protect is off. When the XV-3080’s power is turned on, this setting is automatically turned on, – you will need to turn it off before writing data to the USER memory.
Use this card when you wish to save data for which there is no more space in the internal USER group, or so that the data you created can be used on another XV-3080. Memory card must be formatted before they can be used.
(FORMAT) Before a newly purchased memory card or a memory card used with another device can be used in the XV-3080, it must be formatted on the XV-3080. Formatting initializes a memory card so that you can save XV-3080 data on it.

Setting the State of the XV-3080 When Its Power Is Turned On PowerUp (Power Up Mode) This sets the condition of the XV-3080 when its power is turned on. DEFAULT: The XV-3080 will be ready to play Patch USER:001.
Chapter 9 Examples of Applications Using the XV-3080 Controlling the XV-3080 in Realtime With an External MIDI Device External MIDI controllers (modulation lever, foot switch, expression pedal etc.) can be used to modify Multi-Effects settings or Tone settings in realtime.
Chapter 9 Examples of Applications Using the XV-3080 MATRIX CTRL SRC (Matrix control source) If you wish to use controllers to control a specific Tone parameter, select the controller on this page. Four control sources are assigned to each Patch.
19: TRIPLE-TAP-DELAY Delay L–R 20: QUADRUPLE-TAP-DELAY Delay 1–4 Chapter 9 Examples of Applications Using the XV-3080 Here is an example in which STEP-FLANGER is used for the Multi-Effects. 1. Select a Patch on the PATCH PLAY page. 2. Set its Clock Source (PATCH TEMPO page ([PATCH]- [COMMON])) to SYSTEM.
RPN has an superior part (RPN MSB) and a subordinate part (RPN LSB). The RPN MSB (Control Number 101) informs the XV-3080 that a setting using RPN is to follow, and the RPN LSB (Control Number 100) value tells the which parameter is to be set. Lastly, the Data Entry (Control Change 6) value sets the degree of change.
Chapter 9 Examples of Applications Using the XV-3080 Controlling the TMT with the LFO and Changing the Tone’s Cycle Time When TMT (Tone Mix Table) is selected as the Matrix Control destination, you can use the Control Source controller to change the time at which Tones in a Patch are played.
The beginning of a GM score normally contains a GM System On message. So if you play back a GM score starting in the top of a song, XV-3080 will switch itself to GM mode. But if you play back a GM score starting in the middle of a song, XV-3080 may not switch itself to GM mode, and the GM score may not play back correctly.
Chapter 9 Examples of Applications Using the XV-3080 2. Use [ ] or [ ] to select the effect that you wish to turn on/off. 3. Pressing [INC] turns it on and pressing [DEC] turns it off. Chorus Chorus adds depth and spaciousness to the sound.
The amount of change when the lever is tilted is set to the same value for both left and right sides. Chapter 9 Examples of Applications Using the XV-3080 Mono/Poly (Part Mono/Poly) MONO/POLY Specifies whether the Part will play polyphonically (POLY) or monophonically (MONO).
