PROG P1: Basic/Ctrls (Basic/Controllers)

1–1: Program Basic
This page contains all of the basic settings for the Program.
Among other things, you can:
• Set up the Program to be a Single, a Double, or a Drum
Kit
• Set the Program to play polyphonically or
monophonically
• Enable/disable the half-damper function
1–1a
1–1b
1–1c
1–1a: Oscillator Mode
Oscillator Mode
Specifies the Program's oscillator assignment; whether it
will use one or two oscillators, or a drum kit.
Single: The program will use one oscillator (Oscillator 1,
Filter 1, Amplifier 1). In this case, the program will normally
have a maximum of 80-note polyphony.
Double: The program will use two oscillators (Oscillator 1/
2, Filter 1/2, Amplifier 1/2). In this case the program will
normally have a maximum of 40-note polyphony.
Drums: The program will use one oscillator (as when Single
is selected), but Oscillator 1 will be assigned a drum kit
instead of a multisample. In this case the program will
normally have a maximum of 80-note polyphony.
1–1b: Voice Assign Mode
Voice Assign Mode
Select the basic voice allocation mode. Depending on which
one you select, various other options will appear, such as
Poly Legato (Poly mode only) and Unison (Mono mode
only).
Poly: The program will play polyphonically, allowing you
play chords.
Mono: The program will play monophonically, producing
only one note at a time.
Poly Legato
Poly Legato is available when the Voice Assign Mode is set
to Poly.
Legato means to play note so that they are smooth and
connected; the next note is played before the last note is
released. This is the opposite of playing detached.
On (checked): When you play a legato phrase, only the first
note of that phrase (and within approximately the first
30msec) will use the normal multisample start point
specified by Ofs (Start Offset) (Prog 2–1a); all subsequent
1–1

notes will use the legato start point specified for each
multisample.
Note: This is a useful way to simulate the percussive attack
of a tonewheel-type organ.
Off (unchecked): Notes will always use the setting of the
Ofs (Start Offset), regardless of whether you play legato or
detached.
With some Multisamples, Poly Legato may not have
any effect.
Single Trigger
Single Trigger is available when the Voice Assign Mode is
set to Poly.
On (checked): When you play the same note repeatedly, the
previous note will be silenced before the next note is
sounded, so that the two do not overlap.
Off (unchecked): When you play the same note repeatedly,
the notes will overlap.
Mono Legato
This is available when the Voice Assign Mode is set to
Mono.
Legato means to play notes so that they are smooth and
connected; the next note is played before the last note is
released. This is the opposite of playing detached.
When Mono Legato is On, the first note in a legato phrase
will sound normally, and then subsequent notes will have a
smoother sound, for more gentle transitions between the
notes.
The Mode parameter, below, switches between two different
Mono Legato effects, each of which achieves this
smoothness in a different way. See the description of that
parameter for more details.
On (checked): When you play with legato phrasing, the
notes within a legato phrase will sound smoother, according
to the setting of the Mode parameter, below.
Off (unchecked): Legato phrasing will produce the same
sound as detached playing.
Mode
This parameter is available only when Mono Legato is On.
Normal: When you play legato, the multisample, envelopes,
and LFOs will not be reset; only the pitch of the oscillator
will change. This setting is particularly effective for wind
instruments and analog synth sounds.
With this option, the pitch may occasionally be
incorrect, depending on which multisample you play,
and where on the keyboard you play.
Use Legato Offset: When you play legato, the second and
subsequent notes will use the legato start point specified for
each multisample, rather than the Ofs (Start Offset) (Start
Offset 2–1a) setting.
This is effective when used with a multisample for which
you've assigned a specific legato offset point. For example,
you might use it to control the attack of a breathy, slow-
attack sax sound. On some multisamples, this will have no
effect.
Envelopes and LFOs will still be reset, as they are with
detached playing.
Priority
Priority is available when the Voice Assign Mode is set to
Mono.
