When the TIMBRE SELECT [VOCODER] button is dark, the vocoder is off. Pressing this button will turn the
vocoder on, and the button will be lit. You can use one timbre as the carrier, and apply a vocoder effect to it.
To edit the vocoder settings, press the TIMBRE SELECT [VOCODER] button and then press the [EDIT] but-
ton. You will enter the Vocoder Edit mode. If the Vocoder Edit mode P02–1: COMMON – PROG tab page
"PanelEdt" parameter is set to Link, pressing the TIMBRE SELECT [VOCODER] button will let you use the
front panel knobs and buttons to edit the vocoder settings.
In the explanation that follows, we will be explaining only the parameters that are unique to vocoder pro-
grams. For parameters that are also found in synth programs, refer to p.37 "Synth parameter editing."
Before you continue, refer to p.27 "Playing a vocoder program" and connect the included mic.
