  • Page 16: Parameter Management

    CALLING UP THE MENUS The parameters of the sd5 are grouped in menus that are always called up from the main page of the display which can be accessed using the E E X X I I T T push button (apart from some exceptions which we will see later).
  • Page 17 You will certainly want to instantly know how to use some functions of the SD5 such as how to call up Styles and Voices, reproduce Midi files, how to use the Arranger, how to use a MIDI accordion and the Vocalizer with a microphone. If this is the case then this section is just up your street.
  • Page 18 When the SD5 is turned on it is always pre-set to use the Arranger with a piano sound for the lead (Right section) to be played with the right hand, a background for the left hand (Lower section), a keyboard split point to keep the right hand separate from the left (set to note C3).
  • Page 19 A guide on how to start playing HOW TO CONTROL THE ARRANGER The Arranger controls are also described in the Arranger section. Below are sim- ply the main concepts. ● To change the split point, press and hold the S S P P L L I I T T push button down. Then simultaneously press the key on the keyboard that will be the new split point.
  • Page 20 At this stage you can use effects like reverb on the voice signal from the mic, which can be modified as desired. The versatility of the Vocalizer of the SD5 is such that it can be used in various ways. First and foremost the SD5 is capable of identifying the pitch of the note that you are singing so that it can be harmonized correctly and naturally.
  • Page 21 For the time being we will end on how to simply save a Registration for later recall. Once you have set the Sounds, the Style, the Arranger options and any other parameter as desired, as well as all the other control panel settings on the SD5 (as they currently are), press the S S A A V V E E push but- ton;...

  • Page 23 THE ELEMENTS USED FOR VOICE PROGRAMMING A voice in the SD5 exploits a sampled wave form stored in a Wavetable as a sound source. The wave form can also be created from a number of different samples, arranged across the keyboard as multi-splits or stacked to velocity-switch according to the key dynamics, but in any event these samples cannot be modified by the user on the SD5.
  • Page 24 Voices and User Voices THE EFFECTS Using F F 8 8 E E f f f f e e c c t t the user can access the effects page for the Reverb and Chorus effects. Press F F 7 7 E E f f f f e e c c t t to display the level of the Reverb (always present unless it is set at zero) and the multi-effect that can be disabled (O O f f f f ).
  • Page 25 SAVING A USER VOICE An edited User Voice must be saved permanently in the memory otherwise it will be lost when the SD5 is turned off. The saving 'prompt' appears automatically after any parameter has been modified and the user attempts to exit the programming menu using E E X X I I T T , or by pressing the S S A A V V E E push button to enable the saving procedure.

    1 track (MIDI channel 10), whereas the Live Drums are assigned to the Drum 2 track (MIDI channel 9) within a style. The SD5 is equipped with 24 preset Drum Sets and 24 additional User Drum Sets that can be freely programmed by the user. Live Drums can be programmed and modified only within a Style, from the Arrange View menu.
  • Page 32 Despite the fact that most machines do follow the current General MIDI mapping for drums, you might encounter and older generation machine whose drum map- pings do not correspond to GM format, but you would like to establish on the SD5 to create compatibility.
  • Page 33 Arranger Arranger The Arranger is the heart of the automatic accompaniment of the SD5. It allows you to create a dynamic and versatile arrangement using the Styles and their controls. A Style is a group of short sequences relevant to major, minor and seventh tonalities or different tonalities combined with each other. The Arranger has the task to suitably modify those basic sequences, according to the chord played, to create continuous harmonies that may also be based on more complex chords like the thirteenths and the diminished ones.
  • Page 34 Editing, modifying and copying accompaniment tracks and sections is achieved with Edit Patter. For each Style, the SD5 allows you to modify the voices that are assigned to the tracks, as well as the volumes, the pan value and the amount of the effects sent.
  • Page 35 Arranger bass tracks without the need to keep the chord pressed on the keyboard. In fact if the LED is off, the accompaniment plays only as long as the chord is pressed on the keyboard, whereas the drums tracks continue playing irrespective of whether the chord is held pressed or not.

  • Page 43: Pattern Edit

    The SD5 can be used to record new Styles both in real time and also by exploiting a MIDI connection to automate and speed-up the process when recording from an external source. The SD5 is compatible with Patterns of the MS series. When these are loaded in the RAM, the SD5 performs an automatic conversion that is not visible to the musician.

  • Page 48: Power On Set Up

    Power On Set Up It will soon become clear to you that each time you power on the SD5, there are some features that always default to values set by Ketron (which you almost always have to change or modify prior to using the keyboard). Some of the most important settings programmed for the use of your SD5 can be stored in such a way that they are automatically called up when turning the instrument on, thus avoiding loss of time involved during re-programming.
  • Page 49 General MIDI Level 1 Note that the words set in syllables can only be displayed if the Midi file has Lyric events. The SD5 can however import a text file (.TXT), to be linked to a Midi file, without having to use software to add the words. This possibility is described in the “Text files” section.
