Playing and editing programs
Summary of the edit pages
The PROG PLAY page lets you select and play 
programs. Here you can also use the realtime control 
knobs to perform simple editing or adjust the 
arpeggiator settings.
The PROG EDIT page lets you edit the sound in 
additional ways. It is divided into the following 
groups

OSC Common
Filter/Amp
Filter/Amp EG

For details on how to access each mode and page, refer 
to the "Basic operating methods" section (p. 7).
Basic oscillator settings
Polyphonic/monophonic playing
Use the PROG EDIT: OSC Common "VoiceMode" 
setting to specify whether the program will play 
polyphonically (Poly) or monophonically (Mono).
With the Poly setting, you can play chords by pressing 
multiple keys simultaneously.
With the Mono setting, only one note will sound even 
if you press multiple keys simultaneously.
Normally you'll use the Poly setting, but Mono is 
effective when you're simulating an analog synthesizer 
bass or synth lead.
Try switching between Poly and Mono, and note the 
difference.

Controlling the pitch
Here you can adjust the way that the oscillator's pitch 
will change. You can use the pitch EG or LFO to make 
the pitch vary over time.
Varying the pitch according to keyboard
position (Pitch Slope)
On keyboard instruments such as piano or organ, the 
pitch will go up as you play toward the right end of 
the keyboard, and will go down as you play toward 
the left end.
Use PROG: EDIT OSC1 or OSC2 "PtchSlope" to edit 
this.
With positive (+) settings, the pitch will go up as you 
play toward the right end of the keyboard, and will go 
down as you play toward the left end. Normally you'll 
leave this set at +1.0.
Pitch bend
The PROG EDIT: OSC1 or OSC2 "Pitch JS+X" and 
"Pitch JS‐X" settings specify the amount of pitch 
change (in semitone steps) that will occur when MIDI 
pitch bend messages are received or when you move 
the joystick to the left or right.
With a setting of +12, the pitch can be raised by a 
maximum of 1 octave. With a setting of –12, the pitch 
can be lowered by a maximum of 1 octave.
Applying vibrato
You can use the LFO to create vibrato.
The PROG EDIT: Pitch EG/LFO "LFO1 Int" setting 
specifies the depth of how LFO1 will affect the pitch.
Portamento
Portamento creates a smooth change in pitch from one 
note to the next.
The PROG EDIT: OSC1 (or OSC2) "Portamento" 
setting turns portamento on/off, and "PortaTime" 
controls the time over which the pitch will change.
With higher values, the pitch change will take longer. 
With a value of "000" there will be no portamento.
