Altering Programs to fit
within a Combination
You can make various changes to Programs within the
context of a particular Combination to make them fit
better with other Programs, or to create particular
sonic effects. These changes do not affect the original
Programs, or how those Programs sound in other
Combinations (see page 81 of the Parameter Guide).
Timbre Parameters: OSC
Force OSC Mode
If you wish to force a polyphonic program to sound
monophonically, set this either to MN (Mono) or LGT
(Legato). Conversely, set this to Poly if you wish to
force a monophonic program to play polyphonically.
Normally this should be set to PRG, so that the sound
will play as set by the original Program.
For details, please see "Force OSC Mode" on page 82 of
the Parameter Guide.
If the timbre is using a Program where the Oscillator
Mode is Double or Double Drums, and you want only
OSC1 or OSC2 (not both) to sound, set this to OSC1
(only OSC1 will sound) or OSC2 (only OSC2 will
Normally, this should be set to BTH (Both).
If the Program uses portamento, but you'd like to
disable this for the current Combination, set this
parameter to Off.
Conversely, if you want to force the portamento to be
on, or just to change the portamento time, set this to a
value of 001–127. The portamento will change to use
the newly specified time.
Normally, this should be set to PRG.

Timbre Parameters: Pitch
Transpose, Detune (BPM Adjust)
These parameters adjust the pitch of the timbre.
• In a layer‐type combination, you can set two or
more timbres to the same program, and create a
richer sound by using Transpose to shift their pitch
apart by an octave or by using Detune to create a
slight difference in pitch between the two.
• In split‐type combinations, you can use Transpose
to shift the pitch (in semitone units) of the
programs specified for each key zone.
Note: If you wish to change the playback pitch of a
drum program, use Detune. If you change the
Transpose setting, the relationship between the notes
and drum sounds will change.
Use Program's Scale, Scale
This specifies the scale for each timbre.
If you check Use Program's Scale, the scale specified
by the program will be used. Timbres where this
parameter is not checked will use the Scale setting.
