PORTAMENTO/GLISSAIMDO SECTION -
Together, four controls
affect
the
transition
between
successive
notes or chords: the
PORTAMENTO/
GLISSANDO
(P/G)
slider,
the
P/G
FOOT
SWITCH
ASSIGNER,
the
P/G
SELECTOR
SWITCH,
and
the
FOOT
SWITCH.
Portamento
is
a
smooth, continuous
glide
in
pitch
from
the
previously
played note
or
chord
to
the
next
Glissando
is
also
a
change
in
pitch
from
the
previously played
note
or
chord
to the next,
but
is
a
stepped
progression rather
than
a
continuous
slide
.
.
.
like
playing
a
chromatic
1/2 step
scale
from one
note
or
chord
to the next.
A.
PORTAMENTO/GLISSANDO
SLIDER
(white)
Adjusts
how
long
it
takes to
move
from one
note
to
the next
when
Portamento
or
Glissando
is
ON.
Set
at
SHORT
(up) there
is
no
audible
effect; at
LONG
(down)
the
maximum
effect
is
obtained.
With
the
lever at
maximum
LONG
effect,
it
takes
about
10 seconds
for the pitch to
change from
the
lowest
to the highest
note on
the
keyboard
(about 2 seconds
per octave).
B.
P/G
FOOT
SWITCH ASSIGNER
(black)
When
switched
to
ON,
the
FOOT
SWITCH
controls
the
portamento
or glissando
effect.
If
you
wish
to
activate the
P/G
effect
with
your
hand, turn
off
this
switch;
it
then bypasses
the
FOOT
SWITCH
and
introduces the
amount
and
type
of
effect
you
set
with the
P/G
SLIDER
and
SELECTOR
SWITCH,
NOTE:
With
the
FOOT
SWITCH
unplugged,
the
ASSIGNER
switch does not function, so
P/G
is
always
ON.
If
you
prefer
not
to use
a
FOOT
SWITCH
and
you want
to switch
P/G
ON
and
OFF,
do
it
by
moving
the
P/G
SLIDER
up and down,
or
insert
an
unwired
standard
phone
plug
in
the rear-panel foot
switch
jack to activate the
ASSIGNER
switch.
C.
FOOT
SWITCH
PEDAL
Stepping
on
the
FOOT
SWITCH
PEDAL
turns
ON
the
P/G
effect
only
when
the
P/G
FOOT
SWITCH ASSIGNER
is
also
ON. The amount
of effect
is
set
with
the
P/G
SLIDER.
However,
releasing
the pedal
will
immediately end
the gradual
transition
and
cause
the pitch to
jump
to the
note
BEING
played.
(This
FOOT
SWITCH
PEDAL
may
also
be
used
to control Sustain;
see
the previous
section,
paragraph 13
C.)
D.
P/G
SELECTOR SWITCH
(black)
With
the
switch
rocked
back.
Portamento
will
be
activated
if
the
appropriate
P/G
controls
are
also
ON.
With
the switch
rocked forward,
Glissando
will
be activated
instead.
