<<Making Drum Sounds>>
Drum Kits are regarded as a sound source like a Multisound in Programs, which allows you to
fine-tune the sound using the parameters available in Program Edit mode. For example, it is
possible to adjust tonal brightness using the VDF, or to adjust changes in tonal color and level
using the VDF EG and VDA EG respectively, to obtain special effect sounds. You can utilize
effects advantageously by setting the panpot for each index, or adjusting the send C/D levels. For
example, you may apply reverberation to only the snare sound, or apply the flanger effect to only
the hihat sound.
You can play the drum sound of
index #49 in a chromatic scale.
Index #48

in this range.
You cannot write a Program in Bank G. Select a Program in
Program Play mode, and write the Program using the 16A
page in Program Edit mode.

copied Program using the 1A page in Program Edit mode.
Use the 8A page in Global mode to copy the ROM Drum Kit
that you have just checked in Step 2 onto RAM Drum Kit 1 or
2. When the copy function is carried out, the sound of the
Program that previously used the RAM Drum Kit will change.
Edit the RAM Drum Kit in Global mode. Refer to "Editing a

Go back to Program Edit mode, and change the Drum Kit
