By operating the performance editor and the realtime
controllers you can easily and intuitively modify the
sound of a program.
Program editing refers to the process of modifying the
parameters that make up a program, in order to mod-
ify the sound or change the controller, effect settings
More detailed editing can be performed in PROG
2.1: Ed-Basic – 7.2: Ed-MasterFx.

Performance Edit

By using the eight sliders of the Performance Editor,
you can make overall adjustments to the sound. When
you move a slider, multiple program parameters are
adjusted simultaneously.
1 Press the [PROG] key (the key will light) to enter
Program mode.
2 Press the [F2] ("P.Edit") key.
The Perform. Edit page will appear.
3 Select the Program.
4 Use the Performance Editor to adjust the sound.
PG p.3)
Use the cursor keys [ ], [ ], [ ], [ ] to select the
desired performance editor slider, and use the
VALUE controller to adjust the setting.
If you want to reset the value, press numeric key
[0] and then press the [ENTER] key to restore the
previous setting.
Octave: Indicates the octave setting.
Pitch Stretch: Simultaneously adjusts the transpose
and tune settings of the oscillator. This allows you to
produce a variety of tonal changes without losing
the character of the original sound.
This is particularly effective for acoustic-type pro-
grams such as guitar, bass, or piano. Select various
programs and try this out.
OSC Balance: Adjusts the level balance between
oscillators 1 and 2.
For programs whose "Mode (Oscillator Mode)"
(PROG 2.1: Ed-Basic, Prog Basic page) setting is
Single, oscillator 2 will not sound. Only the level
of oscillator 1 will change. For a Drums program,
this performance editor will have no effect.

Simple program editing

Amp Level: Indicates the amp level. This will adjust
the volume of the entire program.
Attack Time: Indicates the attack time of the filter EG
and amp EG. This will adjust the speed of the attack
from note-on.
In order to maximize the effect of the Attack Time
adjustment, the amp EG Start Level, Attack Level,
Start Level Modulation, and Attack Time Modula-
tion parameters are also adjusted.
Decay Time: Indicates the decay time and slope time
of the filter EG and amp EG.
IFX Balance: This simultaneously adjusts the "W/D
(Wet/Dry)" balance of all insert effect.
MFX Balance: This simultaneously adjusts the
Return 1 and 2 parameters of the master effects.
Depending on the settings of the program parame-
ters, the result may not be noticeable.
5 If you want to save the modified sound, select the
utility menu command "Write Program," and
write the program. (
It is a good idea to edit the name when you write
the program.
If you want to overwrite the program using the
same program number, press the [REC/WRITE]
key and then press the [F8] key.
The edited content will be lost if you select another
program or turn off the power before saving.

Realtime controls

The REATIME CONTROLS [1]–[4] knobs can be used
to edit parameters such as the filter cutoff frequency,
resonance, the amp and filter EG, volume, portamento
time, pan, pitch LFO, and master effect send level etc.
You can also modify settings for the arpeggiator.
If CC#70–79 are assigned to REALTIME CON-
TROLS A-mode or B-mode, the sound edited by
knobs [1]–[4] can be saved by the Program Write
operation (
p.43). Arpeggiator-related settings in
C-mode can also be saved.
