Media mode, and write the combination. (see
pages 116, 122)
10.The "Status," "MIDI Channel" and "Arp Assign"
settings shown in the display of steps 1 to 3 can be
adjusted so that certain timbres will sound only when
the arpeggiator is On, and will be silent when the
arpeggiator is Off.
Combination PIANO: 032 Piano Trio
Although this is a somewhat sophisticated editing technique,
we will describe the settings of one of the preset
combinations as an example.
When you play a specific region of the keyboard, this
combines settings that cause the arpeggiator to play an
arpeggio using different sounds than what's being played by
the keyboard, with other settings that cause the arpeggiator
sounds to remain completely unplayed when the arpeggiator
is off.
Before you play, make sure that the global MIDI channel (G-
MIDI> BASIC MIDI Channel) is set to 01.
Select combination PIANO: 032 Piano Trio, turn the ARP
button on, and play. To make the arpeggiator performance
more clearly audible, turn off the DRUM TRACK button.
• Arpeggiator A is assigned to timbres 2, 3 and 14
(COMBI> ARP page). When you play the keyboard, the
bass riff arpeggio pattern will sound timbres 2 and 3.
• The A Bottom Key and Top Key (C-ARP> SCAN
ZONE page) are set so that arpeggiator A will function
only for notes C4 and lower.
• Arpeggiator A is also assigned to timbre 14, but this is so
that the timbres 2 and 3 program will sound only when
the arpeggiator is on.
Notice the timbre settings for timbres 2, 3 and 14.

• If the arpeggiator is off, playing the keyboard will sound
the timbre(s) that are set to Gch or to the global MIDI
channel (in this case, 01). Since the MIDI Channel of
timbres 2 and 3 is set to 02, it will not sound. Timbre 14
is set to Gch, but since the "Status" is Off it will not
sound.
• Notes from any MIDI channels that are assigned to a
timbre will trigger the arpeggiator. In this case, these will
be MIDI Channel 02 and Gch (global MIDI channel).
When the arpeggiator is on, playing the keyboard will
trigger arpeggiator A, which is assigned to timbre 14
(Gch). Timbres 2 and 3 will be sounded by arpeggiator
A. Since the Status of timbre 14 is Off, it will not sound.
• Since the Status of timbre 14 is Off, it will not sound,
regardless of whether the arpeggiator is on or off. It is a
dummy timbre that causes timbres 2 and 3 to sound only
when the arpeggiator is on.

Combination BASS: 035 Jazzy Guitar
Before you play, make sure that the global MIDI channel (G-

Select combination BASS: 035 Jazzy Guitar, turn the ARP
button on, and play.
• Arpeggiator A is assigned to timbres 6, 7, 8, and 14, and
arpeggiator B is assigned to timbres 4, 5, and 9. When
you press any note of the entire keyboard, the drum
programs of timbres 6–8 will be sounded by the arpeggio
pattern of arpeggiator A. When you play the keyboard
below B3, you'll hear a bass line arpeggio play bass
programs sounded by timbres 4, 5, and 9.
• The arpeggiator A parameters "Bottom Key" and "Top
Key" (C-ARP> SCAN ZONE page) are set so that
arpeggiator A will run for the entire keyboard.
• The B Bottom Key and Top Key (C-ARP> SCAN
ZONE page) are set so that arpeggiators B will function
only for the note B3 and below.
• Arpeggiator A is assigned to timbre 14 as well, but this
setting is so that timbres 6 to 8 will sound only when the
arpeggiator is on. Please see the preceding section
"Combination PIANO: 032 Piano Trio."
Linking the arpeggiator to programs
or combinations
You can specify whether the arpeggiator settings that are
written to a program or combination will be recalled when
you switch programs or combinations, or whether the current
arpeggiator settings will be maintained.
With the factory settings, the former is selected. Use the
latter when you want to keep the same arpeggio pattern
running, and change only the program sound.
This setting is made in "LOAD ARP WHEN CHANGING
(GLOBAL> SYSTM page). (see page 116)
