Internal effects engines.
There are eight internal effects engines; each works like a stereo in/out SPX type multi-effects unit. All the units have
the same power and come loaded with Yamaha's best REV-X reverb algorithms in library locations 46, 47 and 48. The

scene memory. "THE EXAMPLES" engineer also stores the singer's favorite effect settings in the FX library for recall
and for loading into other consoles.
