BANK [A]–[GM] keys
The BANK [A]–[GM] keys are used in Program mode
to select the program bank and in Combination mode
to select the combination bank. In Combination mode,
they are also used to select the program bank for each
timbre of the combination. In Sequencer mode, these
keys are used to select the bank of the program used by
each track of the song.
These keys are also used to specify the bank in dialog
boxes such as Write Program or Write Combination.
Use this key when you wish to compare an edited pro-
gram or combination sound with the un-edited origi-
nal (i.e., the sound that is written into memory).
When editing a program or combination, press this
key. The key will light, and the last-written settings for
that program number or combination number will be
recalled. When you press the [COMPARE] key once
again, the key will go dark and you will return to the
settings that you were editing.
If you edit the settings that are recalled by pressing the
[COMPARE] key (i.e., the settings that are written into
memory), the key will go dark, and it will not be possi-
ble to return to the previous settings by pressing the
[COMPARE] key again.
In Sequencer mode, you can use the [COMPARE] key
to make "before and after" comparisons immediately
after using realtime recording or step recording to
record a song, or after performing a track edit opera-
For example, this can be used effectively when real-
time-recording a track for a song.
