Panel Controls and Terminals

Front Panel

q Keyboard
The CBX-K1 has a 37-key, 3-octave keyboard (C2 to C5),
featuring initial touch (velocity) control. All note on, note
off and velocity data is transmitted via the MIDI OUT
terminal. When used with the C button, the keys are
used for changing various settings and sending special
MIDI messages. (See page 12.)
About the Functions of the CBX-K1: The functions are
divided into two groups: Group A and Group B. The
Group A functions are shown on the panel, above the
left section of the keyboard. The Group B functions are
"hidden" and are listed on pages 12 and 20. Several
functions can be used by pressing only the relevant key;
in other words, pressing L is not necessary. These
functions, such as Sequencer Stop and Start, are shown
on the panel without underline. The right section of the
keyboard serves as value entry and is used for those
functions whose names are underlined on the panel and
require value entry, such as Program Change and
Tempo. Functions whose names appear with a dashed
underline on the panel (for example, GM ON and XG
ON) require pressing L. Value entry on the CBX-
K1 can be done in two number systems: Decimal and
Hexadecimal. The keys labeled A through F are for
Hexadecimal entry.
The normal (default) velocity range of the
CBX-K1 is from 16 to 127. The range differs accord-
ing to the Touch Sensitivity setting (see page 20).
w PITCH Wheel (Pitch Bend)
This spring-loaded Wheel controls Pitch Bend. The
Wheel's operation can be reversed. (See page 20.)
When the CBX-K1 is turned on, this Wheel (with center
detent) is set to control Modulation Depth on the connected
MIDI device. It can be set to control other functions; see
pages 18 and 22 for details. The Wheel's operation can be
reversed. (See page 20.)
r C Button
This button is used to access the "hidden" functions of the
CBX-K1. Used with the N /
M buttons, it allows you to step up or down
through program numbers. (See page 10.) Used with the
keys of the keyboard, it allows you to access the sophisti-
cated MIDI control functions. (See page 12.)
t N / M Buttons
These buttons are used to change the octave range of the
keyboard, allowing you to play across the entire range of
MIDI notes (C-2 to G8). (See page 5.) Press both of these
buttons together to restore the normal octave setting (C2 to
C5). With the C button, these buttons can also be
used to step up or down through program numbers on the
connected MIDI device. (See page 10.)
