Basic combination editing
Banks A, B, and C of the TR contain a variety of combi-
nations that use the preloaded programs (banks A, B,
C) and the preset and preloaded user arpeggio patterns
and effects. You can edit these combinations to create
your own original combinations.
Original programs using samples/multisamples
recorded in Sampling mode (if the separately sold
EXB-SMPL option is installed) or loaded into memory
in Media mode can also be used in a combination.
Combinations you edit or create can be written into the
384 combination memory areas of banks A–C. They
can also be saved and managed on SD card in Media

Suggestions for editing procedure
The parameters of each timbre are set in 2.1: Ed-Prog/
Mix–4.4: MIDI Filter4, and 7.1:Ed-InsertFX. This is
where you create the basic combination consisting of
the programs you select here.
First use 2.1: Ed-Prog/Mix to select the program for
each timbre, and then use 3.3: Ed-Key Zone and 3.4:
Ed-Vel Zone to specify the range in which each pro-
gram will sound (layer, split, velocity switch, etc.).

To add ﬁnishing touches to the sound, you can make
insert effect settings (in 7.1: Ed-InsertFX) and master
effect and master EQ settings (in 7.2: Ed-MasterFX)
that are separate from the effect settings of Program
mode. In addition, you can make arpeggiator settings
(in 6.1: Ed-Arp.) and controller settings (in 2.2: Ed-Ctrl)
to create the ﬁnished combination.
By using the Utility "Solo Selected Timbre", you
can listen only to the selected timbre. This is a con-
venient way to audition individual sounds of tim-
bres that are layered. (
In pages that display all timbres 1–8, such as 2.1:
Ed-Prog/Mix, you can use the [ ], [ ] keys to
select timbres. You can also select timbres directly
by holding down the [TIMBRE/TRACK] key and
pressing one of the [F1 T1/T9]–[F8 T8/T16] keys.
