1A–1D Oscillator1 Setup
These parameters are used to select the waveform for Oscillator1 and to set up other parameters
related to this oscillator.
01A OSC1 SOUND ø
Oscillator Level (Level) 0–99
Pitch EG Intensity
Multisound: This parameter is used to select an internal Multisound for Oscillator1. The X5 has
430 Multisounds. Multisounds are the basic sound elements that make up a Program and provide
the basic characteristics of a Program.
Multisounds with NT (No Transpose) at the end of their names, for example, 187 Stadium NT,
produce the same pitch regardless of what note is played.
Note: Since each Multisound has an upper limit to its pitch range, some Multisounds may not
produce sound when high notes are played.
If the Oscillator mode 0A is set to DRUMS, you can select a drum kit from the following table.
Drum kits are set up in Global mode. "6A–6D Drum Kit1 Setup" on page 158 and "7A–7D Drum
Kit2 Setup" on page 160. There are 10 drum kits available: two internal RAM kits, and eight
internal ROM kits.

Drum maps for drum kits 0, 1and 2–9 are provided at the back of this Owner's Manual.
Oscillator Level: This parameter is used to set the volume level of Oscillator1.
Note: For some Multisounds, a high Oscillator Level may result in distortion when playing
chords. If this occurs, reduce the Oscillator Level.
Octave: This parameter allows you to shift a Multisound up or down in one octave steps. If the
Oscillator mode 0A is set to DRUMS, this parameter should be set to 8', otherwise some drum
sounds will be moved out of their playable range. If this parameter is set to anything other than 8',
take care when setting the VDA and VDF Keyboard Tracking parameters.
Pitch EG Intensity: This parameter determines the amount of control that the Pitch EG exerts
over the pitch of Oscillator1. A negative value inverts the pitch levels set for the Pitch EG (Refer
to 3A–3C Pitch EG.).
