The A-mode functions of the REALTIME CONTROLS
Knob1-A: LPF Cutoff (Filter LPF Cutoff: CC#74)
Control the low pass ﬁlter cutoff frequency of the ﬁlter.
Simultaneously, CC#74 will be transmitted.
(Filter Resonance/HPF Cutoff: CC#71)
Control the resonance level or the cutoff frequency of the
high pass ﬁlter. If the program "Filter Type" is Low Pass
Resonance, the resonance level will be controlled. If "Filter
Type" is Low Pass & High Pass, the cutoff frequency of the
high pass ﬁlter will be controlled. Simultaneously, CC#71
will be transmitted.
Knob3-A: EG-Intensity (Filter EG Intensity: CC#79)
Control the ﬁlter EG intensity. Simultaneously, CC#79 will
Knob4-A: EG-Release (Filter, Ampliﬁer EG Release: CC#72)
Control the release time of the ﬁlter and ampliﬁer EG.
Simultaneously, CC#72 will be transmitted.

When the "Mode (Oscillator Mode)" (PROG 2.1–1a) is Sin-
gle, turning the switch on will apply portamento regardless
of the "Enable (Porta. Enable)" (PROG 3.1–1c) setting, and
turning the switch off will not apply portamento.
If "Mode (Oscillator Mode)" is Double, and if the "Enable
(Porta. Enable)" setting is the same for OSC1 and 2 (i.e.,
Enable or Disable for both OSC1 and 2), then portamento
will be applied to OSC1 and 2 when the switch is turned on,
and portamento will not be applied to OSC1 and 2 when the
switch is turned off.
If the "Enable (Porta. Enable)" setting is different for OSC1
and 2 (i.e., OSC1 is Enable and OSC2 is Disable, or OSC1 is
The connected foot switch will not function.
Alternate Modulation or Effect Dynamic Modulation can be controlled. To control these, select Foot SW:#82 for "AMS" or
FSW#82 for "Dmod Src."
Control the sostenuto effect (which holds only the keys (Note No.) that were being held at the moment that the pedal
switch was turned on).
Turn the soft pedal effect on/off.
Turn the arpeggiator on/off. The NRPN message [Bn 63 00 Bn 62 02 Bn 06 00 (off) or 7F (on)] will be transmitted each
time this is turned on/off.
The switch can be used to select programs or combinations. When in PROG 1.1: Play, the program that follows the cur-
rently selected program will be selected. When in COMBI 1.1: Play, the combination that follows the currently selected
combination will be selected. Simultaneously, a Bank Select message and Program Change message will be transmit-
The switch can be used to select programs or combinations. When in PROG 1.1: Play, the program that precedes the
currently selected program will be selected. When in COMBI 1.1: Play, the combination that precedes the currently
selected combination will be selected. Simultaneously, a Bank Select message and Program Change message will be
The switch can be used to start/stop the sequencer. Simultaneously, a MIDI Start or Stop message will be transmitted.
If "REC Setup" (SEQ 1.1–6a) is set to Manual Punch In, the switch can be used to punch-in and punch-out when record-
ing on the sequencer.
This can be used if in Cue List, the "Rep (Cue Edit-Repeat)" (SEQ 2.1–1b) setting of each step has been set to FS. Turn-
ing the pedal switch on while that step is repeating will be the trigger for advancing to the next step. When the end of the
song is reached, this will advance to the next step (song).
The switch will control the effect produced by joystick movement in the +Y direction (Vertical upward).
The switch will control the effect produced by joystick movement in the –Y direction (Vertical downward).
The switch will control the effect of REALTIME CONTROLS knobs –. (On produces the same effect as when the
knob is rotated fully right, and Off as when it is rotated fully left.)
The switch will control the effect of the [SW1] and [SW2] keys.
This switch can be used to control the tempo of the arpeggiator or song in realtime.
Foot Switch Assign
You can assign the function of an assignable switch (sepa-
rately sold Korg PS-1 option) connected to the ASSIGN-
ABLE SWITCH jack.
• This setting is made in GLOBAL 1.1: System Foot page
"Foot SW Assign" (1.1–3a).
If you select a function that includes a CC#, that MIDI
control change message will be transmitted each time
the switch is turned on/off. (Off: 0, On: 127)
Disable and OSC2 is Enable), then portamento will be
applied to the OSC whose setting is Enable when the switch
is turned on, and portamento will be applied to neither OSC
when the switch is turned off.
Even if you set "Foot SW Assign" to Knob1...4, you can-
not use a connected foot switch to control the REAL-
TIME CONTROLS C mode arpeggiator effect. Nor will
it transmit MIDI control messages.
Tap tempo control can be used whenever the [TEMPO]
knob can be operated. For example in Sequencer mode
if "Tempo Mode" (☞p.51) is Auto, the tempo cannot be
controlled while a song is playing.
