This shifts the pitch of the performance or program in one‐
octave steps across a range of six octaves.
Velocity Curve (Vel Curve)
This specifies the way that the volume and/or tone will
change in response to variations in keyboard playing
The curves you can select will depend on the "Convert Posi‐
tion" (page 72) setting. If the setting is PreMIDI, the curve is
applied immediately after the keyboard. If the setting is
PostMIDI, the curve is applied immediately before the
In the case of PreMIDI, your keyboard playing dynamics are
modified as shown by transmission curves 1–8 (lower left
diagram), and reception is fixed at curve 4 linear (diagram
at lower right).
In the case of PostMIDI, your keyboard playing dynamics
are transmitted according to transmission curve 4 linear
(lower left diagram), and will be interpreted according to
reception curve 1–8 (lower right diagram).
If you're using the PS60 as a MIDI sound module, and want
to adjust the overall brightness of the sound, set "Convert
Position" (page 72) to PostMIDI and select the appropriate
For a setting of PreMIDI
Velocity (KBD→MIDI Out)
Global Convert Position
1, 2, 3: Strongly played notes will be affected.
4 (Normal): The normal curve
5, 6: Produces an effect even if you do not play very
7: This curve produces a relatively consistent effect for softly
8: This curve produces an even more consistent effect.
9: Compared with the standard curve #4, this curve softens
the response of gently‐played notes. This allows velocity
control with broader dynamics for sounds such as acoustic
Each curve has its own characteristics, so you should select
the curve that best suits your own playing style and the
results you want to obtain.

Velocity (MIDI In→TG)
After Touch Curve
This specifies the way that incoming aftertouch data will
affect the volume or tone when "Convert Position" is set to
This setting has no effect when "Convert Position" is
set to PreMIDI.
This curve is applied immediately before the tone generator.
The aftertouch Curve setting selects the curve that is applied
to the incoming aftertouch.
After Touch (MIDI In→TG)
1, 2: This curve produces change when strong aftertouch
pressure is applied.
3 (Normal): The normal curve.
4, 5: This curve produces change even when light pressure is
6, 7: These curves produce change in 24 or 12 steps. Curve
number 7 allows change over twelve steps, so when using
aftertouch to modify the pitch, you can set the range of
modification to one octave, and use aftertouch to vary the
pitch in semitone steps.
8: This is a random curve. Use this when you wish to create
special effects, or to use aftertouch to apply unpredictable
However, solely in the case of 0 or 127, the value will not be
random; 0 or 127 will be applied constantly
This specifies whether performance names, and program
names will be scrolled if they contain a larger number of
characters than can be shown in the display.
These specify the EQ offset (internal reference values).
Since these settings adjust the overall tone of the PS60, you
can use them to change the PS60ʹs character.
These settings are added to the settings made by the front
panel EQ knobs and the EQ settings of the performance or
You can use these settings to adjust your sound to compen‐
sate for differences in the speakers youʹre using or the venue
in which youʹre performing, without having to edit and re‐
save each program and performance. For example, this
makes it easy to boost the low end to give more depth to the
