  • Page 8: The Connector Panel

    THE CONNECTOR PANEL L(MONO) & R INPUT Connectors and Level Switch These are the analog stereo inputs to the SPX1000. The input jacks are standard 1/4” monaural phono types. The level switch selects either -20 dB or +4 dB nominal input level.
  • Page 9: 2: The Spx1000 System

    INPUT MODE AND DIGITAL I/O CONFIGURATIONS The SPX1000 offers a choice of input modes as well as analog and digital input/output configurations, providing extraordinary flexibility in “adapting” to various systems and requirements.
  • Page 10: Digital L/o Modes

    ANALOG In this mode the DIGITAL IN connector is inactive and the SPX1000 receives input via the analog INPUT L and R jacks. Both the analog OUTPUT L and R and DIGITAL OUT connectors are active so that the SPX1000’s output can be simultaneously fed to analog and digital equipment if required.
  • Page 11 When the SPX1000 clock (CLK) mode is switched from internal (INT) to external (EXT), or vice-versa, a noise pulse may appear at the outputs. This also occurs if the SPX1000 is switched from digital to analog input while CLK is set to EXT (CLK is automatically reset to INT in this case).

  • Page 15: 4: The Programs & Parameters

    This parameter adjusts the balance between the direct sound and effect signals. At 100% only the effect sound is delivered from the SPX1000 outputs, while at 0% only the direct sound is output. At a setting of 50%, the direct and effect sounds are output in approximately equal proportions.
  • Page 16: Reverb Programs

    Reverberation is the warm musical “ambience” you experience when listening to music in a hall or other properly- designed acoustic environment. The SPX1000 offers several different reverb effects, simulating types of reverberation you would experience in a hall (REV 1 HALL), in a smaller room...
  • Page 17: Rev 4 Plate

    The complexity of the many reflections that make up reverberation varies according to the shape of the room and its contents. In the SPX1000 the term “diffusion” refers to the complexity of these reflections. If the DIFFUSION parameter is set to “0,” minimum complexity and therefore a clearer, more straightforward reverb effect is produced.

  • Page 19 The complexity of the many reflections that make up reverberation varies according to the shape of the room and its contents. In the SPX1000 the term “diffusion” refers to the complexity of these reflections. If the DIFFUSION parameter is set to “0,” minimum complexity and therefore a clearer, more straightforward early reflection effect is produced.
  • Page 20: Delay Program

    Density (DENSITY): EARLYREF.2: 1 – 3 GATE REVERB, REVERSE GATE : EARLY REF. Please note that the DENSITY parameter is not provided in the EARLY REF. 1 program. This parameter determines the density of the reverb reflections (i.e. the average amount of time between reflections).
  • Page 21: Modulation Programs

    After the initial delay produced by the INI DLY parameters, the time between subsequent repeats is determined by the left and right channel interval parameters. Left Channel Feedback Gain (Lch F.B): -99% — +99% Right Channel Feedback Gain (Rch F.B): -99% — +99% Individually set the amount of the left or right channel delay signal fed back to the input of the processor.
  • Page 22: Noise Gate

    PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM High-pass Filter Frequency (HPF FRQ): THRU, 32 Hz – 1.0 kHz Permits rolling off the low-frequency content of the reverb signal above the set frequency. The HPF is OFF when set to THRU. Low-pass Filter Frequency (LPF FRQ): 1 – 16 kHz, THRU Permits rolling off the high-frequency content of the reverb signal above the set frequency.
  • Page 23: Pitch Change 1

    PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY 20. PITCH CHANGE 1 PITCH CHANGE 1 makes it possible to produce two independently pitch-shifted output notes in addition to the direct signal, so you can create three-part harmonies with a single input note. Both pitch-shifted notes appear at the center of the stereo sound field.
  • Page 24: Stereo Pitch

    PITCH parameter (the MIDI OUT terminal of the synthesizer must be connected to the SPX1000 MIDI IN terminal, and the SPX1000 must be set to receive on the MIDI channel on which the synthesizer is transmitting).
  • Page 25 ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM KEY). Pitched playback of the sampled sound is possible by transmitting MIDI note ON messages to the SPX1000’s MIDI IN connector from a MIDI keyboard or other device (e.g. play a key on the keyboard).
  • Page 26: Freeze 2

    (the MIDI OUT terminal of the synthesizer must be connected to the SPX1000 MIDI IN terminal, and the SPX1000 must be set to receive on the MIDI channel on which the synthesizer is transmitting). If, for example, the BASE KEY parameter is set to C4, pressing the C3 key on the synthesizer (C3 is one octave lower than C4) will cause the sampled sound to play one octave lower than its normal pitch.
  • Page 27: Pan

    PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY 25. PAN This is a very sophisticated pan program that allows creation of “rotary” pan in addition to straightforward pan effects. Pan Type (TYPE): L R, L R, L R-TURN Determines the direction in which the sound sweeps across the stereo sound field.

    28. MULTI (CHO&REV) 29. MULTI (SYM+REV) 30. MULTI (EXC&REV) The SPX1000 multi-effect programs combine compressor, distortion, equalizer or dynamic filter (access via EQ key), reverb and chorus or exciter effects. Refer to the effect configuration diagram for each program to understand how the various effects are “connected.”...
  • Page 29: Multi (exc&rev)

    Chorus Frequency (CH. FRG): 0.05 – 40 Hz Chorus Delay Modulation Depth (DM DEPTH): 0% – 100% This sets the amount by which the delay time of one delay signal is varied in relation to the other, and thus the depth of the CHORUS effect.
  • Page 30: Er + Rev

    PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM Stereo or Mono x 2 Output (OUT MODE): ST, MONO When set to ST (stereo), the output of the left and right- channel processors are mixed and the output signal is delivered in stereo. When MONO x 2 is selected the left and right-channel processors are completely independent.
  • Page 31: Chorus + Rev

    PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM Stereo or Mono x 2 Output (OUT MODE): ST, MONO When set to ST (stereo), the outputs of the left and right- channel processors are mixed and the output signal is delivered in stereo. When MONO x 2 is selected the left and right-channel processors are completely independent.
  • Page 32: Compressor & Expander Programs

    PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM NOT AVAILABLE COMPRESSOR & EXPANDER PROGRAMS 36. COMPRESSOR This extremely versatile compressor program allows creation of a wide range of compression and limiting effects. It can simply be used to reduce the dynamic range of a signal, to smooth out the sound of an electric bass or add sustain to an electric guitar.
  • Page 33: Lo Lvl Expander

    37. LO LVL EXPANDER The EXPANDER program allows efficient suppression of low-level noise, contributing to a cleaner-sounding overall signal. This i a stereo expander in which the highest signal level – left- or right-channel - is used for gain control. NOTE: The EXPANDER program has no internal parameters.
