  • Page 35: Choosing Patches

    Matching MIDI Channels In order for the XV-2020 to respond to MIDI data sent by an external MIDI device, both devices must be set to use the same MIDI channel or channels. Here, in Patch mode, let’s set both devices so that they use MIDI Channel 1.

    The intervals between G and B, C and E, F and G#, Bb and C#, and Eb and F# have a natural third-the interval between a major third and a minor third. On the XV-2020, you can use Arabian temperament in the three keys of G, C and F.

    • One-shot:These waveforms contain sounds that have short decays. A one-shot waveform records the initial rise and fall of its sound. Some of the XV-2020’s one-shot waveforms are sounds that are complete in themselves, such as percussive instrument sounds. The XV-2020 also contains many other one-shot waveforms that are elements of other sounds.

    For example, if you play one note using a Patch that consists of only one Tone, you’ll use up one voice of polyphony. XV-2020 Tones may use two Waveforms. If a Patch’s Tone uses two Waveforms, the number of voices it requires is doubled. If two keys are pressed with a Patch that has four Tones, and each Tone uses two Waveforms, a total of sixteen voices are used.

    For each Part, you can select from among four velocity curves to find the one that best matches the touch of the MIDI keyboard connected to the XV-2020. Set this to “OFF” if you’re using the MIDI keyboard’s own velocity curve.

    Refer to Saving a Sound You Create (p. 92). Description The XV-2020 allows you to use temperaments other than equal temperament. Turn this on when you wish to use a tuning scale other than equal temperament. Adjusts the pitch of each note in one-cent steps (1/100th of a semitone) relative to its equal-tem- pered pitch.
