5.1–1b: High (High Sample)
Speciﬁes the bank of the High drumsample.
ROM, EX: Select preset Drumsamples. In "Drumsample,"
you can choose from ROM: 0000–0416, EX: 000–100.
( ☞ VNL)
RAM: Samples created in Sampling mode or samples
loaded in Media mode can be used as drum samples.
(Requires installation of the EXB-SMPL option (sold sepa-
rately) and/or sample data RAM.)
Select the "Drumsample" in the range of 0000–3999.
Data in AKAI S1000/S3000 formats, AIFF format, or
WAVE format can also be loaded in Media mode as
samples, and used as drum samples.
Indicates the High drumsample. The sample selected here
will be sounded by velocities above the "Vel. SW L→H"
value. (☞For details on each drumsample, refer to VNL.)
When ROM or EX is selected as the "Bank," you can
use the utility menu command "Select by Category" to
select drumsamples by category ( ☞ 5.1–1d).
It is not possible to edit the category name of a drum-
sample, or to re-specify its category.
S.Ofs (Start Offset)
On (checked): The sample waveform will start playback
from a location later than the beginning of the drumsample
waveform. The location of the Start Offset is pre-determined
for each drumsample. This setting is not valid for drumsam-
ples which have no Start Offset.
However when a RAM bank is selected, this will depend on
the selected drumsample. If you select a drumsample that
includes one of the following types of sample, checking this
item will cause playback to start from the Loop Start
• A sample that was recorded (sampled) in Sampling
mode (if the EXB-SMPL option is installed)
• A sample whose Loop Start Address was edited in
Sampling mode (if the EXB-SMPL option is installed)
after the sample was loaded in Media mode
• A sample whose Loop Start Address was specified
automatically when it was loaded as an AKAI, AIFF, or
WAVE file in Media mode
Off (unchecked): Playback will start from the beginning of
the drumsample waveform.
On (checked): The drumsample waveform will playback in
"one-shot" reverse. The location at which the reverse play-
back will start and end is pre-determined for each drum-
If the drumsample is already preset for reverse play-
back or reverse loop playback, checking this setting will
not change its playback direction. In the case of a drum-
sample from the RAM bank, the sample will play (in
reverse) from "E (End)" (SMPL 3.1–2b) to "S (Start)."
This parameter will not change the playback direction
of a sample for which "Rev (Reverse)" is checked.
Adjusts the pitch in semitone steps. +12 is one octave up,
[ROM, RAM, EX]
and –12 is one octave down.
Adjusts the pitch in one-cent steps.
–99 is a semitone lower, and +99 is a semitone higher.
Adjusts the cutoff frequency of the ﬁlter. The cutoff fre-
quency for each key is determined by adding this value to
the ﬁlter "Frequency" (PROG 4.1–1b, 4.2–1b) of the program
that uses this drum kit.
Adjusts the ﬁlter resonance. The ﬁlter resonance for each
key is determined by adding this value to the ﬁlter "Reso-
nance" (PROG 4.1–1b, 4.2–1b) of the program that uses this
drum kit. (When the "Type" (PROG 4.1–1a, 4.2–1a) is Low
Pass & High Pass, there will be no resonance effect.)
Adjusts the attack time of the volume (Ampliﬁer). The
attack time for each key is determined by adding this value
to the amp EG Attack Time of the program that uses this
Adjusts the decay time of the volume (Ampliﬁer). The decay
time for each key is determined by adding this value to the
amp EG Decay Time of the program that uses this drum kit.

Write Drum Kits
This command writes all drum kits 00 (INT)–23 (User).
1 Select "Write Drum Kits" to access the dialog box.
2 To execute the Write command press the [F8] ("OK") key.
To cancel without executing press the [F7] ("Cancel")
You can also use the [REC/WRITE] key to write the data
in the same way as this command.
Press the [REC/WRITE] key to access the "Update Drum
Kits" dialog box, and press the [F8] key to write the data.
