These controls let you modify the tone, pitch, volume,
effects, etc. in realtime as you play.
The joystick moves in four directions: left, right, up
(away from yourself), and down (towards yourself).
Each of the four directions can be used to control a
different function, such as modulating Program or
effects parameters. These assignments can be different
for every Program, but generally, they do the following:
Standard Joystick functions
Move the joystick...
Up (away from yourself)
Down (towards yourself )
For details, please see page 82.
This function lets you maintain the effect that had been
applied prior to releasing your hand from the joystick.
You can use the SW1/SW2 buttons or a foot switch
connected to the KROME to lock the current position
so that the effect will continue even after the joystick
returns to the center position. For details, please see
"Locking the Joystick" on page 25.
You can use these buttons to control program
parameters via AMS (Alternate Modulation), or effect
parameters via Dmod (Dynamic Modulation).
They can also transpose the keyboard by octaves, turn
portamento on/off, or to lock the position joystick.
Each button can work as either a Toggle or Momentary
button. In Toggle mode, the assigned function is
switched between on and off each time the button is
pressed. In Momentary mode, the assigned function is
active on only as long as you hold down the button.
In Program mode, you can check the assignments of
SW1 and SW2 on the Prog P0: Play– Main page.
