  • Page 6: Px-3 Configuration

    General Guide PX-3 Configuration Master Control Configuration The PX-3 Digital Piano is a MIDI master keyboard that uses four zones (UPPER 1, UPPER 2, LOWER 1, LOWER 2) to control the internal sound source (INT) and external MIDI devices (EXT). Each zone performs simultaneous control over one internal sound source part and one external MIDI device channel (when both INT and EXT are ON).
  • Page 7 Sound Source Configuration The sound source is configured with a total of 36 parts: four parts that correspond to each of the zones, 16 parts for MIDI file playback, and 16 parts that operate as the multi-timbre sound source during receipt of MIDI input. The following shows the relationships between parts, ports, and MIDI channels.
  • Page 8: Modes

    General Guide Modes This Digital Piano has two main modes: a MASTER CONTROL mode and a CARD PLAYER mode. Each of these modes has two sub-modes: a TONE mode and a REGISTRATION mode. MASTER CONTROL mode TONE mode REGISTRATION mode Use the MASTER CONTROL mode when playing the Digital Piano in a stand-alone configuration or when using it as a MIDI master keyboard.
