Additional Performance Setup Tips
The EX Performance mode can be used to create multi-track setups for song playback, layered or split voices for
real-time performance, and it includes a comprehensive range of master keyboard functions. In this small leaflet we'll
provide a few extra layering and sequencing tips and techniques that should help you to make full use of the EX
synthesizers' advanced capabilities while avoiding timing problems which can occur if you attempt to push the
technology beyond its limits.
Layered and Split Setups
Here are a few examples of layered and split setups that
you might like to use as a starting point when creating
your own. The procedure for creating each setup is
oulined briefly below. Refer to the EX owner's manual
for full details about the functions and parameters used.
Layered Piano & Pad
This is a fairly common layered combination in which a
pad voice adds depth and richness to a basic piano
sound.
1: Go to the Performance Job mode and execute the Init
Perf function (manual page 173).
2: Engage the Performance Edit mode, press [F3] to go
to the "MLT" (Multi) display, and assign the "P1-001
Natural Grnd" piano voice to Part 1 (manual page
171).
3: Assign the "P2-002 Warmer" pad voice to Part 2.
4: Scroll down to the Part 2 "Layer Sw" parameter and
turn it "On".

Split Strings & Solo
In this split setup a strings voice is played on the left-
hand section of the keyboard while a solo voice is
played on the right-hand section.
1: Go to the Performance Job mode and execute the Init
Perf function (manual page 173).
2: Engage the Performance Edit mode, press [F3] to go
to the "MLT" (Multi) display, and assign the "P1-097
Swell String" voice to Part 1 (manual page 171).
3: Assign the "P2-093 TriLead" solo voice to Part 2.
4: Scroll down to the Part 2 "Layer Sw" parameter and
turn it "On".
5: Scroll down to the "Nt Lmt H" parameter and set the
Part 1 high note limit value to "B2".
6: Set the Part 2 "Nt Lmt L" parameter to "C3".
7: Scroll down to the "NoteShft" parameter and set the
Part 1 note shift value to "+12".
With these setting all keys to the left of C3 should play
the string voice while all keys to the right of (and
including) C3 should play the solo voice.
