Simple combination editing
A combination is a set of multiple (up to eight) pro-
grams, and allows you to create complex sounds that
could not be produced by a single program.
Combination editing refers to the process of modify-
ing the sound of a combination by changing the pro-
gram selected for each timbre or adjusting the
keyboard range and velocity range, or by modifying
the controller, and effect settings.
You can edit a combination in COMBI 2.1: Ed-Prog/
Mix–7.2: Ed-MasterFX, but can also make settings for
"Program Select, "Pan," and "Volume" in COMBI 1.1
Play as well.
