The range of pitch change that is produced by pitch
bend messages can also be adjusted via MIDI. (☞p.239
"Changing the pitch bend range")

Control change

[Bn, cc, vv]
Transmitted and received as (n: channel, cc: control change
no., vv: value)
Refer to "MIDI transmission when the TR's controllers are
operated" (☞p.228) and "TR operations when control
changes are transmitted/received" (☞p.230).
• Control changes can be turned on/off as a whole in "Ctrl
Change (Control Change)" (GLOBAL 2.1–1b).
• In Combination and Sequencer modes, the COMBI/SEQ
4.1–4.4: Ed-MIDI Filter 1–4 settings allow transmission/
reception of control changes to be individually turned
on/off for each timbre/track. For the assignable
controllers ([SW1], [SW2], REALTIME CONTROLS [1]–
[4] knobs, Foot Pedal/Switch), MIDI filter settings will
apply to the control change number to which each
controller is assigned. "Other Control Change" applies
to control changes that are not covered by the items of
the other check boxes (☞p.42, 69).
MIDI CC#00–CC#95 can be selected for the B-mode of
REALTIME CONTROLS [1]–[4] knobs.
Selecting program/combination banks
Bank select (CC#00, CC#32)
☞p.235 "Program Change/Bank Select"
Using the joystick to apply modulation
Modulation 1 depth (CC#01) [Bn, 01, vv]
When you move the TR's joystick in the +Y direction (away
from yourself), Modulation 1 Depth messages will be trans-
mitted. When these messages are received, the same effect
will be applied as when the TR's joystick is operated. Nor-
mally this will apply a vibrato effect (pitch LFO).
• In Combination and Sequencer modes, transmission/
reception can be switched on/off for each timbre/track
(☞"JS+Y CC#01" COMBI/SEQ 4.2–1/2a).
Modulation 2 depth (CC#02) [Bn, 02, vv]
When you move the TR's joystick in the –Y direction
(toward yourself), Modulation 2 Depth messages will be
transmitted. When these messages are received, the same
effect will be applied as when the TR's joystick is operated.
Normally this will apply a wah effect (filter LFO).
• In Combination and Sequencer modes, transmission/
reception can be switched on/off for each timbre/track.
(☞"JS–Y CC#02" COMBI/SEQ 4.2–1/2a)
Other manufacturers use this message for other pur-
poses (e.g., breath controller, etc.)
Controlling the portamento effect
Portamento time (CC#05) [Bn, 05, vv]
When the above CC# is assigned as a B-mode function for
one of the REALTIME CONTROLS [1]–[4] knobs, rotating
that knob will transmit Portamento Time messages, and will
modify the speed at which the portamento pitch changes.
When this message is received, the result will be the same as
when the controller is operated.
236
Portamento switch (CC#65) [Bn, 41, vv]
When the above CC# is assigned to "SW1," "SW2" or
ASSIGNABLE SWITCH, operating that switch will transmit
vv=127 [7F] for ON or vv=0 [00] for OFF, and the porta-
mento effect will be switched on/off. When this message is
received, the result will be the same as when the controller is
operated. (vv of 63 [3F] or less will be OFF, and 64 [40] or
greater will be ON.) (☞p.224 "SW1, SW2 Assign List")
• In Combination and Sequencer modes, transmission/
reception of this message can be turned on/off
independently for each timbre/track. ("Portamento SW
CC#65" COMBI 4.1–2a, SEQ 4.1–3(4)a)
• In Sequencer mode, portamento time/switch messages
will be transmitted by each track whose "Status" is BTH,
EXT, or EX2 when you set "Portamento" (SEQ 4.1–
3(4)a), re-select a song or SMF, or return to the beginning
of a measure. (☞p.63)
Controlling the volume
Volume (CC#07) [Bn, 07, vv]
When the above CC# is assigned to the ASSIGNABLE
PEDAL or as the B-mode function of a REALTIME CON-
TROL knob [1]–[4], operating that controller will transmit
Volume messages, and the volume will change. When this
message is received, the result will be the same as when the
controller is operated.
Expression (CC#11) [Bn, 0B, vv]
When the above CC# is assigned to the ASSIGNABLE
PEDAL or as the B-mode function of a REALTIME CON-
TROL knob [1]–[4], operating that controller will transmit
Expression messages, and the volume will change. When
this message is received, the result will be the same as when
the controller is operated.
The volume of the TR is determined by summing the value
of the Volume message with the value of the Expression
message.
If adjusting the Volume message does not increase the vol-
ume as you expect, or if there is no sound, transmit MIDI
messages from an external device to reset the value of the
Expression message (set vv to 127). In Sequencer mode, this
will be reset when the "Location" of the song is moved to
001:01.000.
• In Combination mode, Volume messages will be
transmitted by each timbre whose "Status" is EXT or
EX2 when you re-select the combination.
• When you change the "Volume" setting (SEQ 1.1–4(5))
in Sequencer mode, or when you re-select the song or
return to the beginning of the song in Sequencer mode,
volume messages will be transmitted by each track
whose "Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2.
Regardless of the "Status" settings, re-selecting a song,
or returning to the beginning will reset the internal Vol-
ume value to the value specified by each track (the
starting settings), and will reset the Expression value to
the maximum.
You can control the volume independently for each
track. You will normally use Volume messages to set the
initial volume level for each track (the starting settings),
and use Expression messages to create changes in
dynamics within the musical data of the song.
By using the universal exclusive Master Volume message,
you can adjust the overall volume without changing the vol-
ume balance between timbres or tracks. (☞p.240 "About
system exclusive messages")
