The PS60ʹs effects consist of one insert effect for the program
of each timbre (except for the Strings timbre), two master
effects used by the entire performance, and EQ settings.
You can choose from a total of 71 different types of full‐digi‐
tal effect: 63 types for the insert effects, and eight types for
the master effects.
You can use the following insert effects on each timbre cate‐
gory. Effect types 62: Organ Vib/Chorus and 63: Rotary
Speaker can be used only with programs of the Organ cate‐
gory. Programs of the Strings category cannot use an insert
Tip: 63: Rotary Speaker lets you use the ORGAN SLOW/
FAST button to switch the rotary speaker simulation
between slow/fast speeds.
How the 63 types of insert effect are organized
Dynamics‐type effects such as
compressor or limiter
Filter‐type effects such as EQ, exciter,
Overdrive‐type effects, and modeling
effects such as guitar/bass amp and mic
Modulation‐type effects such as phaser,
tremolo, and ring modulator
Two mono effects internally connected
Mono ‐ Mono Serial
in series. These combine dynamics, EQ,
and phaser, etc.
Organ FX: 62–63
Standard effects for organ.
On the PS60 itself, you can use Program Edit to select effects
and edit some of the parameters. In the editor you can edit
all of the effect parameters.
Master effect 1 (Modulation)
Master effect 2 (Reverb/Delay)
Youʹll use these effects to add final finishing touches to the
overall sound of the performance or program. Each effect
lets you choose one of four types.
Modulation‐type effects chorus, flanger,
EQ (stereo three-band EQ)
This applies overall equalization to the signal of the L/R bus,
and outputs the result to AUDIO OUTPUT L and R.
You can use the front panel switches and knobs to edit the
settings directly. You can also make more detailed edits in
the program or performance edit pages, or in the editor.
Effect structure for a program
A program uses the insert effect as an important part of cre‐
ating the sound, just as it uses the Filter and Amplifier sec‐
tions to process the sound thatʹs output from the oscillators
(OSC 1&2). As mentioned above, each program can use one
insert effect. Then the master effects are used to apply spa‐
tial processing such as chorus and reverb, and last, the EQ is
applied to adjust the final character of the tone.
Effect structure for a performance
In a performance, the sound of a timbreʹs program, or the
sound of the programs of multiple split or layered timbres,
are given spatial processing by the master effects and over‐
all tonal adjustment by the EQ. The insert effects are
included in the programs.
In the case of Split settings, when a timbre of the same cate‐
gory is used for the main timbre and for the sub timbre (for
example, if different E.PIANO programs are used by the
two timbres), the program of the sub timbre will use the
insert effect of the main timbreʹs program. This is because
only one insert effect can be used for each timbre category.

Master effects and EQ
When you switch performances, the master effect and EQ
settings saved in the performance are also loaded along
with the other performance settings. However when you
switch the program of a timbre within the performance, the
programʹs master effect and EQ settings will be recalled
according to the following conditions.
Single settings (i.e., other than Split or Layer)
When you select a timbre (ON), or switch the program of
that timbre, the master effect and EQ settings of the selected
program will be recalled.
Single -> Layer settings
When you switch from Single to Layer settings, the settings
for the program of the timbre you turned ON first will be
recalled. These settings will not change even if you subse‐
quently switch the timbreʹs program.
When you return from Layer settings back to Single set‐
tings, the "Single settings" section listed above will apply.
Single or Layer -> Split settings
The master effect and EQ settings will not change when you
switch to a Split setting. The master effect and EQ settings
that had been recalled when using Single or Layer settings
will remain active.
