Program P1: Edit – Basic
Here you can make basic settings for the program, such as
basic oscillator settings and the scale.
1–1: Program Basic
1–1a
1–1c
1–1a: Oscillator Mode
Specify the basic program type; whether it will use one or
two oscillators, or a drum kit.
Single: The program will use one oscillator (Oscillator 1,
Filter 1, Amplifier 1). In this case the program will have a
maximum of 62-note polyphony.
Double: The program will use two oscillators (Oscillator 1/
2, Filter 1/2, Amplifier 1/2). In this case the program will
have a maximum of 31-note polyphony.
Drums: The program will use one oscillator (as when Sin-
gle is selected), but Oscillator 1 will be assigned a drum kit
instead of a multisample. In this case the program will have
a maximum of 62-note polyphony.
1–1b: Voice Assign Mode
Poly/Mono
Poly: The program will play polyphonically, allowing you
play chords.
Mono: The program will play monophonically, producing
only one note at a time.
Single Trigger
This is available when the "Poly/Mono" setting is set to
Poly.
Checked: When the same note is played repeatedly, the pre-
vious note will be silenced before the next note is sounded,
so that the notes do not overlap.
Legato
This is available when the "Poly/Mono" setting is set to
Mono.
Checked: Legato is on. When multiple note-on's occur, the
first note-on will retrigger the sound, and the second and
subsequent note-on's will not retrigger.
Unchecked: Legato is off. Notes will always be retriggered
when note-on occurs.
When legato is on, multiple note-on's will not retrigger the
voice. If one note is already on and another note is turned on,
the first voice will continue sounding. The oscillator sound,
envelope, and LFO will not be reset, and only the pitch of the
oscillator will be updated. This setting is effective for wind
instrument sounds and analog synth-type sounds.
4
1–1
1–1b
[Single, Double, Drums]
[Poly, Mono]
When legato is off, multiple note-on's will retrigger the
voice at each note-on. The oscillator sound, envelope, and
LFO will be reset (and retriggered) according to the settings
of the program.
If "Legato" is checked, certain multisamples or key-
board locations may produce an incorrect pitch.
Priority
This parameter is valid when "Poly/Mono" is set to Mono.
It specifies which note will be given priority to play when
two or more notes are played simultaneously.
Low: Lowest note will take priority.
High: Highest note will take priority.
Last: Last note will take priority.
Hold
Checked: Hold is On. Even when you take your finger off of
the key, the note will continue sounding as if it continued to
be held. Unless the "Amp1 EG", "Amp2 EG" (4–3a, 4–6)
"Sustain (Sustain Level)" is set to 0, the sound will continue
playing.
This is ideal for playing drum sounds, and when you set
"Oscillator Mode" (1–1a) to Drums, you should turn Hold
On.
Unchecked: Hold is Off. Except for drum programs, you
should normally set Hold Off.
If you turn "Hold" On for a drum program, keys of the
selected drum kit whose "Enable Note Off" parameter
(Global P5: 5–2a) is unchecked will be set to Hold On.
Keys that are checked will be set to Hold Off. If you
select Hold Off, the keys will be set to Hold Off regard-
less of their "Enable Note Off" setting.
1–1c: Scale
Type
[Equal Temperament...User Octave Scale15]
Select the basic scale for the internal tone generator.
Equal Temperament: This is the most widely used scale,
where each semitone step is spaced at equal pitch intervals.
Pure Major: In this temperament, major chords of the
selected tonic will be perfectly in tune.
Pure Minor: In this temperament, minor chords of the
selected tonic will be perfectly in tune.
Arabic: This scale includes the quarter-tone scale used in
Arabic music.
Pythagoras: This scale is based on ancient Greek musical
theory, and is especially effective for playing melodies.
Werkmeister (Werkmeister III): This is an equal tempered
scale that was used since the later Baroque period.
Kirnberger (Kirnberger III): This scale was created in the
18th century, and is used mainly to tune harpsichords.
Slendro: This is an Indonesian gamelan scale in which an
octave consists of five notes.
When "Key" is set to C, use the C, D, F, G and A notes.
(Other keys will sound equal-tempered pitches.)
Pelog: This is an Indonesian gamelan scale in which an
octave consists of seven notes.
When "Key" is set to C, use the white keys. (The black keys
will sound the equal tempered pitches.)
Stretch: This tuning is used for acoustic pianos.
[Low, High, Last]
[On, Off]
