You can edit the quick parameters either from Program Edit
mode on the PS60 itself, or from the editorʹs Quick page,
The overview shows the status of the main parameters that
make up the program.
By clicking the displayed graphic of a filter or EG, or on an
effect setting, you can jump to the page for that parameter.
These parameters specify voice settings for oscillators 1 and
2 at the same time.
Voice Assign Mode (Voice Mode)
Select the basic voice allocation mode. Depending on which
one you select, various other options will appear, such as
"Mono Legato" and "Unison" (Mono mode only).
Poly: The program will play polyphonically, allowing you
Mono: The program will play monophonically, producing
only one note at a time.
This is available when the "Voice Assign Mode" is set to
Legato refers to notes that are played in a way that they
sound smooth and connected; the next note is played before
the last note is released. This is the opposite of playing
When "Mono Legato" is On, the first note in a legato phrase
will sound normally, and then subsequent notes will have a
smoother sound, for more gentle transitions between the
On: When you play with legato phrasing, the notes within a
legato phrase will sound smoother.
Off: Legato phrasing will produce the same sound as
Unison can be used in Mono mode.
On: When Unison is on, the Program uses two or more
stacked, detuned voices to create a thick sound.
Use the "Voices" and "Detune" parameters to set the num‐
ber of voices and amount of detuning, and the "Thickness"
parameter to control the character of the detuning.
Off: The Program plays normally.
The quick parameters are organized into the tone parame‐
ters (page 21) and parameters that have been selected from
among the full parameters.
Voices (Number of Voices)
This controls the number of detuned voices that will be
played for each note when using "Unison." It applies only
when "Unison" is On.
Detune is available when Unison is On.
This parameter sets the tuning spread for the Unison voices,
in cents (1/100 of a semitone). The "Thicknes" parameter,
below, controls how the voices are distributed across the
detune amount. When "Thickness" is Off, the voices are dis‐
tributed evenly, centered around the basic pitch.
For instance, let's say that the "Voices" parameter is set to 3,
"Detune" is set to 24, and "Thicknes" is Off:
Voice one will be detuned down by 12 cents, voice two will
not be detuned, and voice three will be detuned up by 12
As another example, let's say that Detune is still set to 24
and Thickness is still Off, but the Number of voices is set to
Voice one will still be detuned down by 12 cents, voice two
will be detuned down by 4 cents, voice three will be
detuned up by 4 cents, and voice 4 will be detuned up by 12
Thickness is available when Unison is On.
This parameter controls the character of the detuning func‐
tion for the unison voices.
Off: Unison voices will be evenly distributed across the
Detune range, as shown above.
01–09: Unison voices will be detuned in an asymmetrical
way, increasing the complexity of the detune function, and
changing the way that the different pitches beat against one
another. This creates an effect similar to vintage analog syn‐
thesizers, where oscillators would frequently drift slightly
out of tune. Higher numbers increase the effect.
