Playing and editing Programs
Easy Program editing
Simple editing using the
sliders and knobs
All of the M50's programs can be edited. You can start
by editing a preloaded program, or you can initialize a
program and create your own from scratch.
It is a lot of work to create the sound you want by
starting with an initialized program. It's often more
convenient to start with a preloaded program that's
close to what you have in mind, and then edit it to
your taste. On the M50, you can use the knobs of the
front panel control surface to make very effective edits
simply from within the Prog P0: Play page.
For example, you can vary the cutoff, resonance, or
release time by operating the knobs.
Adjusting the EQ
You can adjust a mid-sweepable three-band EQ in the
Prog P0: Play– Main page. This EQ will affect both
oscillator 1 and oscillator 2.
1. Access the Prog P0: Play– Main page.
2. In the display, select the EQ that you want to edit.
3. Use the VALUE controllers (e.g., VALUE slider) to
edit the value.
