4. Use the pages located at the right of PROG EDIT:
TFX "TFX Select" to edit the effect parameters so
that the overall sound is to your liking.
For details on the parameters of each effect, please
refer to PG p. 219 and follows.
Effect settings for a
combination or song
In Combination and Sequencer modes, you can specify
how each timbre or track is routed to the insert effects,
master effects, and total effects. The procedure for
adjusting settings is similar in each mode. Here, we'll
explain the procedure for Combination mode.
We'll explain how to send the output of timbre 1 to
insert effect 1, and then make settings for insert effect 1.
1. In COMBI EDIT: Timbres ‐ Timbre 01, set "Bus"
to specify the bus where the output of timbre 1
will be sent. In this example, select IFX1 so that
the timbre's output will be input to insert effect 1.
If you want to send a timbre's output to a master
effect without sending it to an insert effect, use the
"Send1" or "Send2" settings of that timbre to
specify the send levels to the master effects.
This setting is available only if "Bus" is set to L/R or
Note: The actual send level is determined by
multiplying this setting with the "Send1" or
"Send2" value of oscillators 1 and 2 in the program
selected by the timbre. If the program's "Send1" or
"Send2" setting is 0, the actual level will be 0 even if
you raise the send level setting here.
If "Bus" is set to IFX1–IFX5, the "Send1" and
"Send2" (IFX1–IFX5) settings following the insert
effect will determine the send levels to the master
2. "FXCtrl Bus" sends the timbre's output to the FX
control bus. Use this when you want to use a
different sound to control the input to an effect.
You can use the two FX control buses to control
effects with a great deal of flexibility. (PG p. 209
"FX Control Bus")
1. Access COMBI EDIT: IFX1, and press the
The first page of IFX1 is the insert effect 1 selection
screen ("IFX Select").
Press the button once again, and then use the
buttons to select the effect type for insert effect 1.
2. In the same way as for a program's insert effects,
specify the effect's on/off status and connections.
3. In the same way as for a program's insert effects,
use "Pan (CC#8)," "Bus," "FXCtrl Bus," "Send1,"
and "Send2" to specify the pan and routing
following the insert effect.
4. Use the pages located at the right of COMBI EDIT:
IFX1 "IFX Select" to edit the effect parameters of
insert effect 1.
You can adjust these settings in the same way as for
a program (p. 47).
You can use MIDI to control each effect's dynamic
modulation (Dmod) and the "Pan (CC#8),"
"Send1," and "Send2" following the insert effect.
These settings are controlled on the MIDI channel
specified by "Ctrl Ch."
For timbres that are routed to an insert effect,
a "*" symbol is shown at the right of the channel
number Ch01–16. If multiple timbres with
differing MIDI channel settings are routed, you
can specify here the channel on which control will
You can make these settings in the same way as for a
program (p. 48).
Dynamic modulation (Dmod) for the master
effects and total effect can be controlled on the
MIDI channel specified by "Ctrl Ch."
Dynamic modulation (Dmod)
Dynamic modulation (Dmod) lets you use MIDI
messages or the microSTATION's controllers for
realtime control of specific effect parameters.
Another way to control effect parameters is to use
MIDI/Tempo Sync, which allows the LFO speed of a
modulation effect or the delay time of a delay effect to
be synchronized to the tempo of the arpeggiator or
