Playing and editing Combinations
Timbre Parameters MIDI page
This controls the status of MIDI and the internal tone
generator for each Timbre. Normally, if you're playing
an internal Program, this should be set to INT.
If the status is set to Off, EXT, or EX2, that Timbre's
internal sounds will not be played. Off simply disables
the Timbre entirely. The EXT and EX2 settings allow
the Timbre to control an external MIDI device.
For details, please see "Status" on page 81 of the
Bank Select (when status=EX2)
When the Status is set to EX2, these parameters allow
you to transmit MIDI Bank Select messages to external
Timbres that you wish to play from the KROME's
keyboard must be set to the global MIDI channel. Your
playing on the keyboard is transmitted on the global
MIDI channel, and will trigger any timbre that matches
this channel. Normally you will set this to Gch. When
this is set to Gch, the MIDI channel of the timbre will
always match the global MIDI channel, even if you
change the global MIDI channel.
On some preloaded Combinations, Timbres used
by the arpeggiator may have their MIDI Channels
set to something other than Gch. These will be
timbres that play only when the arpeggiator is on,
which is a very useful technique for creating
"Apreggiator based" Combinations.
For details, please see "Arpeggiator settings in
Combination and Sequencer modes" on page 89.
In particular, note the relationships between
arpeggiator A/B assignments and MIDI Channel.
MIDI filter settings
For each MIDI Filter item, you can specify whether or
not the corresponding MIDI message will be
transmitted and received. The checked items will be
transmitted and received.
The MIDI filters don't turn the functions themselves on
or off. Instead, the filter just controls whether or not
that MIDI message will be transmitted and received.
For example, if portamento is on, portamento will be
applied to the internal KROME sound even if Enable
Portamento SW is unchecked.
As another example, let's say that you've selected a
bass Program for Timbre 1, and a piano Program for
Timbre 2, with the goal of creating a bass/piano split.
You could choose the following settings so that
pressing the damper pedal affects only Timbre 2's
1. Access the P5–1: MIDI Filter <1> T01–08 page.
2. Un‐check the Enable Damper box for Timbre 1.
3. Check the Enable Damper box for Timbre 2.
