1.
Parallel thirds
or
fifths.
This involves
raising
the
pitch of
the
SYN-
TH
E
section
above
the pitch
of
the
INST
section.
Switch
on
one
SYNTHE
tab,
and one INST
tab.
Then
use
the
EFFECT
section
SYNTHE
PITCH knob
(above
the
OCTAVE
UP
tab)
to
adjust the
SYNTHE
pitch
so
it
is
tuned a
third
or
fifth
above
the
INST
pitch
when
you
play the
keyboard.
Tuning
is
easier
if
the
tabs
you
turn
on
in
both sections
have
the
same
pitch to
start
with.
(If
both are
marked
8,
for
example.)
2.
Joy
stick effects.
Pitch
bends.
Bending
the pitch
of
a
note
is
a major
ex-
pressive
technique
on
a
synthesizer,
and
each
musician develops
his or
her
own
style.
Switch
on
the
PITCH
JOY
STICK
SYNTHE
tab,
or
the
PITCH
JOY
STICK
IN-
STRUMENT
tab,
or both.
The
left
joy
stick
is
used
for
pitch
bends
in
either
section.
The
range
knobs
let
you
set
how
far
the
pitch
will
be
bent.
The
left
range knob
is
for
the
SYNTHE
section, the
right
range
knob
is
for
the
INST
section.
When
adjusting
these knobs,
be
sure
to
have
one
of
the
tabs switched
on
in
the
sec-
tion
you want
to
bend
the
pitch
of.
Then,
turn
the
range
knob
all
the
way
down,
hold
the
joy
stick
all
the
way
to
the
right,
play
a key
on
the
keyboard,
and
turn
up
the
range
knob
until
the pitch
bends
as
much
as you want
it
to.
After
completing
this
adjustment,
you
won't
have
to
worry
about
the
range
knob
while playing.
How much
you
move
the joy
stick to
the
left
or
right,
will
control
how
far
the
pitch
bends.
Vibrato.
Add
vibrato
whenever you
like,
by
shifting
the joy
stick
forward.
You
can
add
vibrato
as
you
bend
the pitch
of
a
note.
This
can
give
effects
like
choking a
guitar.
Two
examples
of
this
are
shown
in
the
diagrams
®
and
(§)
In
®
you
start
with the joy
stick to
the
left
(or
right),
then
you
play
a key
and
move
the
stick
in
and upward
to
apply
vibrato.
In
(§)
you
play
a key
first,
and
then
bend
the
pitch
and
apply
vibrato.
In
either
case,
you
are
first
bending
the
pitch,
and
then apply-
ing
vibrato,
all
in
one
fluid
motion
of
your
hand.
3.
KBD SENSOR
The keyboard
sensor
comes
in
handy
for
pitch
bend and
vibrato
effects.
Like the joy
stick,
it
can be used
to
control
just
the
SYN-
THE
section or the
INST
section, or
both
at
the
same
time.
Therefore,
you can use
the
joy
stick for
one
section,
and
the
keyboard
sensor
for
the other section.
This gives
you
independent,
variable
control
over
each
section's vibrato
and
pitch
bend
effects.
And
if
one
of
your
hands
is
not
free
to
oper-
ate the joy
stick,
you can
still
get the
same
effects with
the
keyboard
sensor.
How
hard
you
press
down
on
the
keys
will
control the
vibrato or pitch
bend.
Adjust
the
INTENSITY
knob above
the
KBD SENSOR
tab while
playing a
key
with
maximum
pressure.
The
position of
this
knob
will
determine
the
range
over
which
the
effect varies.
