This section provides four general-purpose EG units.
Each EG can be used as a modulation source for
various parameters, to apply time-variant change to
Settings are made by the "Program P6: Edit-Common
The arpeggiator can be used in the same way as for
the programs of other banks. Settings are made by the
"Program P7: Edit-Arpeggiator" parameters.
Here you can make settings for functions such as
Scale, Key Assign, and Controllers (joystick, ribbon
controller etc.). Settings are made by the "1–1: Prog
Basic" and "1–7: Controller Setup" parameters.
Features of the oscillator
In a bank F program, you can choose from 13
oscillator types for OSC1 and 9 oscillator types for
In Program P1 "1–1: Program Basic" or "1–2: OSC
Basic" you can select the oscillator type for OSC1 and
OSC2, and use them together.
If a Single Size oscillator (Standard–E. Piano Model)
is selected for OSC1, you can select a Standard–E.
Piano Model for OSC2 as well. If a Double Size
oscillator (Brass Model–Bowed String Model) is
selected for OSC1, OSC2 will be unavailable.
This simulates the oscillator of an analog synthesizer.
You can use PWM (pulse width modulation) etc. to
produce the same results as on an analog synthesizer.

This oscillator creates pitched components from noise
or an impulse. In addition to producing noisy sounds,
it can also produce a wide variety of sound ranging
from synth basses to string-like sound. (p.17 of this
VPM (Variable Phase Modulation)
This oscillator uses phase modulation to generate
harmonics. A rich harmonic structure can be created
by using phase modulation between two oscillators
and the wave shaping table. (p.18 of this manual)
This oscillator uses filter resonance, and is an
especially effective way to produce mallet sounds and
pad sounds. (p.20 of this manual)
These are special oscillators for generating the sounds
which could be produced on an analog synthesizer by
modulating one oscillator with another. These allow
you to produce sounds with complex overtone
structures such as bells, metallic sounds, and gongs.
(p.21–23 of this manual)
This simulates a drawbar organ with three drawbars
(when one oscillator is used) or six drawbars (when
two oscillators are used) (page 23 of this manual).
Since each drawbar can use one of four types of
waveform, a wide range of tones can be produced.
E. Piano Model (electric piano model)
This is a physical model that simulates a warm vintage
electric piano. (p.24 of this manual)
This is a physical model that simulates a brass
instrument such as a trumpet or trombone. (p.25 of
This is a physical model that simulates a woodwind
instrument such as a sax or flute. (p.27 of this
Plucked String Model
This is a physical model that simulates plucked string
instrument such as guitar or bass. (p.29 of this
Bowed String Model
This is a physical model that simulates a bowed string.
