Allows you to use a foot controller to control the volume. This function is
available only for the pedal connected to the instrument's AUX PEDAL jack.
Allows you to use a pedal to control the sustain. When you press and hold the
pedal, all notes played on the keyboard have a longer sustain. Releasing the
pedal immediately stops (damps) any sustained notes. If you are using the right
pedal or connected foot controller, the "HALF PEDAL POINT" parameter
allows you to specify how far down you should press on the pedal until the
damper effect starts working.
Allows you to use a pedal to control the Sostenuto effect. If you play a note or
chord on the keyboard and press the pedal while holding the note(s), the notes
will sustain as long as the pedal is held. However, all subsequent notes will not
sustain. This makes it possible to sustain a chord, for example, while other
notes are played staccato.
NOTE
This function will not affect any of the Organ Flutes and only some of the Super Articulation Voices, even if
this has been assigned to the Foot Pedals.
Allows you to use a pedal to control the Soft effect. Pressing this pedal reduces
the volume and changes the timbre of the notes you play. This is effective only
for certain appropriate Voices. You can turn this pedal function on or off for
each keyboard part on this display. If you are using the right pedal or connected
foot controller, the "HALF PEDAL POINT" parameter allows you to specify
how far down you should press on the pedal until the soft effect starts working.
When the pedal is pressed, the pitch changes, and then returns to normal pitch
when the pedal is released. The following parameters can be set for this func-
tion on this display.
UP/DOWN
Determines whether the pitch change goes up (is raised) or down (is lowered).
RANGE
Determines the range of the pitch change, in semitones.
ON SPEED
Determines the speed of the pitch change when the pedal is pressed.
OFF SPEED
Determines the speed of the pitch change when the pedal is released.
LEFT, RIGHT 1, 2
Turns this pedal function on or off for each keyboard part.
The portamento effect (a smooth slide between notes) can be produced while
the pedal is pressed. Portamento is produced when notes are played legato style
(i.e., a note is played while the preceding note is still held). The portamento
time can also be adjusted form the Mixing Console display
function does not affect certain Natural Voices, which would not sound appro-
priately with this function.
This function will not affect any of the Organ Flutes, Super Articulation 2 Voices and only some of the Super
NOTE
Articulation Voices, even if this has been assigned to the Foot Pedals.
Allows you to bend the pitch of notes up or down by using the pedal. This
function can be assigned to the right pedal or connected foot controller. The
following parameters can be set for this function on this display.
UP/DOWN
Determines whether the pitch change goes up (is raised) or down (is lowered).
RANGE
Determines the range of the pitch change, in semitones.
LEFT, RIGHT 1, 2
Turns this pedal function on or off for each keyboard part.
