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
The PROG EDIT page lets you edit the sound in
additional ways. It is divided into the following
For details on how to access each mode and page, refer
to the "Basic operating methods" section (p. 7).
Basic oscillator settings
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
Polyphonic or monophonic setting. Pitch
stretch, hold, and reverse settings.
Filter cutoff, frequency, resonance, filter
EG intensity, and amp velocity intensity
Filter and amp envelope settings.
Filter EG envelope settings.
Amp EG envelope settings.
Pitch EG envelope settings.
Oscillator 1 and 2 settings.
Audition riff settings.
Assign functions to knobs 1–4 when
realtime control mode B is selected.
Arpeggiator tempo setting.
Effect routing settings.
Insert effect settings.
Master effect settings.
Total effect settings.
Master volume setting.
Write a program.
Check an external setup.
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
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.
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.
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 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.
