Program parameters
P02–2: DRUM (Drum Common)
These are the parameters used with a drum kit.
These parameters will be available only if you have as-
signed a drum kit to one of the timbres in the current
program. Here you can select the drum kit to be as-
signed to the timbre, and adjust the overall volume and
panning of the entire drum kit.
1: DrumTmbr (Drum Timbre)
Selects which timbre will be assigned a drum kit.
You can't edit voice-related parameters for a tim-
bre that is assigned a drum kit.
2: KitNo.
Selects which of the internal kits is assigned to the tim-
bre. The [Name] field below indicates the drum kit
☞p.28 "Playing a Drum Kit – Drum Play mode"
3: Level
Specifies the overall volume of the entire drum kit.
Higher values produce a louder volume.
If a drum kit is assigned to a timbre, you can use
the front panel [LEVEL] knob to adjust this param-
4: Pan
Specifies the overall panning (stereo position) of the en-
tire drum kit.
R63 is right channel only, CNT is center, and L63 is left
channel only.
If a drum kit is assigned to a timbre, you can use
the front panel [PAN] knob to adjust this parame-
5: NoteSft (Note Shift)
Shifts the keyboard assignments of the entire drum kit.
This is an easy way for you to shift the assignment of
each drum instrument to the keyboard (as specified in
the Drum Edit mode) to a position that's appropriate for
the timbre's key zone setting (☞p.78 "P03–3: ZONE
(Timbre Zone)"). If this is set to 0, the keyboard assign-
ments made in the Drum Edit mode will be used with-
out change. A setting of –12 shifts the assignments one
octave downward, and a setting of +12 shifts them one
octave upward.
[Off, Timbre1...Timbre4]
For example, suppose that you have a drum kit that as-
signs the sixteen drum instruments Kick–Hand Clap to
the notes C4 through D#5, as shown in the illustration.
Setting "NoteShift" to –12 would shift the assignments
of the sixteen drum instruments to the C3–D#4 position.
P02–3: E.F (Envelope Follower Common)
These are the envelope follower (EF) parameters.
The envelope follower detects the "shape" of the change
in volume level coming from an external audio source,
or from the signal coming from an internal bus.
Based on the settings you make here, both envelope data
and gate data can be obtained from the detected enve-
You can use envelope data as a modulation source for a
virtual patch. For example, you can use an audio input
signal to modulate the filter cutoff of an internal sound
You can use gate data as a trigger to play an internal
sound generator. For example, the detected envelope
could control the note-on/off of a program played by
the sound generator.
Unlike the envelope follower of the vocoder, the
envelope follower settings you make here detect
the envelope from the overall audio signal that is
being input. The envelope follower of the vocoder
divide the input signal into sixteen bands, and
then detect the envelope of each band.
NoteShift: -12
