6A–6D Drum Kit1 Setup
These parameters allow you to set up Drum kit1.
Before editing a drum kit, you must select a Program in Program Play mode that is using that drum
kit (that is, a Program whose oscillator mode is set to DRUMS). Drum Kits are affected by the
VDF, VDA, and effect settings like Multisounds in a Program, because they use the parameter
settings of the Program selected in Program Play mode.
After editing a drum kit, select a Drum Kit for a Program to be used in Program Edit mode Page
1A, and write the edit on page 16A.
Internal RAM has two Drum kits.You cannot edit the Drum kits in the ROM. To edit them, ﬁrst
copy them into RAM. (see "8A Drum Kit Copy" on page 160)

Index: X5DR drum kits consist of indexes. Think of an index as an empty drum case, into which
you put a drum sound, select a keyboard note, set a volume level, and pan. Parameters 6A to 6D
affect the selected index.
Indexes that have not been assigned a drum sound display the message "No Assign" when
Drum Sound: this parameter allows you to select a drum sound for the currently selected index.
A setting of --- means that no drum sound is selected. See "Voice Name List" for available drum
Key: this parameter allows you to select the note that will trigger the index. It is not possible to
select the same key for two indexes. So, if you want to select a key that is being used by another
index, set the other index to a different key ﬁrst.
