In this page you can set various general parameters for the Style
play mode. Settings can be saved to a Performance, or STS.
Chord Recognition Mode
This parameter defines how chords are recognized by the auto-
accompaniment engine. Please note that when the SPLIT LED is
turned off, the Fingered 3 mode is always selected, and you must
always play at least three notes, to let a chord be recognized.
Note: This parameter is the same you can find in the main page
(see "Split panel" on page 86).
Fingered 1
Play one or more notes. A full Major chord will
be recognized even if only a single note is played.
Fingered 2
You must always play two or more notes for a
chord to be recognized. If you play just one note,
a unison will be played. If you play a suspended
chord (a root+5th), a suspended chord will be
played. The full chord will be recognized when
you play three or more notes.
Fingered 3
You must always play three or more notes for a
chord to be recognized. This option is automati-
cally selected when the SPLIT LED is turned off.
One Finger
You can also compose a chord using a simplified
chord playing technique:
• If you play only one note, a Major chord is rec-
ognized.
• Play the root note, plus a white key on the left,
for a 7th. For example, play C3 + B2 for a C7.
• Play the root note, plus a black key on the left,
for a Minor chord. For example, play C3 + Bb2
for a C minor.
• Play the root note, plus a white and a black key
on the left, for a Minor 7th. For example, play C3
+ B2 + Bb2 for a C min 7.
Expert
This mode is an extension of the Fingered 2, add-
ing rootless and slashed chord recognition, often
used in jazz, fusion, modern pop and light music.
This type of chord recognition is very useful to
play piano chords typical of jazz piano players.
You don't need to play the root note, doubling the
note already played by the bass track.
Style Play operating mode
Preferences: Style Preferences
Velocity Control
Set this parameter to trigger one of the following functions sim-
ply by playing louder with your left hand. When playing with a
velocity value higher than the value set by the "Velocity Control
Value" parameter (see page 100), the selected function will be
activated.
Note: This function only works when the SPLIT LED is turned on.
It does not work when it is turned off.
Off
The function is turned off.
Break, Fill In 1, Fill In 2
When playing with a velocity higher than the
trigger value on the Lower track, the selected ele-
ment is automatically triggered.
Start/Stop
You can start or stop the Style by playing harder
on the keyboard.
Memory
When playing with a velocity higher than the
trigger value, the Memory function will be acti-
vated or deactivated.
Scale Mode
This parameter defines which tracks are affected by the selected
alternative scale (see "Scale" on page 90).
Keyboard tracks
The scale will only affect Keyboard tracks.
Upper tracks The scale will only affect Upper 1-3 Keyboard
tracks.
All Tracks
The scale will affect all tracks (Keyboard, Style,
Pads).
Memory Mode
This parameter sets the way the MEMORY button works.
Chord
When its LED is on, the MEMORY button keeps
the recognized chord in memory. When its LED
is off, the chord is reset when raising the hand
from the keyboard.
Chord + Lower
When its LED is on, the MEMORY button keeps
the recognized chord in memory, and keeps the
Lower track held until the next note or chord is
played. When its LED is off, the chord is reset
when raising the hand from the keyboard, and
the Lower track is not sustained.
Fixed Arr. + Lower
When its LED is on, the MEMORY button keeps
the Lower track held until the next note or chord
is played. When off, the Lower track is not sus-
tained when raising the hand from the keyboard.
The chord is always kept in memory.
