6. BASIC OPERATIONS
PLAYING ON THE KEYBOARD
Just play on the keyboard. You will hear the Realtime tracks
playing. There are four Realtime tracks: Upper 1–3 and
Lower. They may play all at the same time, or just one or a
few of them, depending on their Mute status. If you cannot
hear a track, check the mute status of that part.
Tracks can be set in different ways: use the KEYBOARD
MODE section to select the way they are configured on the
Press FULL UPPER to play the Upper 1–3 tracks on the
full range of the keyboard, just as you would on a piano.
Press SPLIT to let the Upper 1–3 tracks play on the right
of the Split Point, and the Lower track on the left.
Keep the SPLIT POINT
button pressed, and
play a note to change
the point where the
keyboard is divided in

note, press the GLOBAL but‐

SELECTING A PERFORMANCE
A Performance is a set of Programs and settings for the Key‐
board and Style tracks, that makes selecting complex combi‐
nations live fast and easy. When the STYLE CHANGE LED is
on, a Performance can also select a different Style.
It is always advisable to use Performances, rather than single
Programs, when playing even a solo sound, since a Performance
lets you select the right effects, transposition, plus many other
parameters, together with the Programs.
