Creating a Drum Kit

Specifying the key to which you will assign a
drumsample
1. Select the Program that you wish to use while editing
the Drum Kit.
For details, please see "Drum Program selection," above.
2. Press the MODE GLOBAL switch to enter Global
mode.
3. Access the Global P5: Drum Kit– Sample Setup page.
Drum Kit
Select
4. Use the Drum Kit parameter, at the top of the page, to
select the Drum Kit that you wish to edit.
GM drum kits 48 (GM)–56 (GM) cannot be selected
here. (It is not possible to edit or write a GM drum kit.)
If you wish to modify the settings of one of the drum
kits 48 (GM)–56 (GM), you can use Copy Drum Kit to
copy it to 00 (INT)–47 (USER), and then edit the copy.
5. Use the Key parameter to select the note that you wish
to edit.
To select a key, you can use any of the standard VALUE
controllers (the slider, dial, numeric keypad etc.). As a
shortcut, you can also hold down the ENTER switch and
play a note on the keyboard.
This Key selection applies to all five Drum Kit editing pages.
6. Use the Assign check box to specify whether the key
will have its own settings, or use the same settings as
the next higher note.
If Assign is checked, the key will have its own settings. This
is the default.
If Assign is not checked, the key won't have its own
settings. Instead, it will use the same settings as the next
higher note–except that the drumsamples will be played at a
lower pitch. The amount of pitch change depends on the
Pitch Slope parameter, on the Prog P2: OSC/Pitch– OSC1
Pitch page.
Use this setting when you want only to change the pitch,
such as with tom or cymbal sounds.

Creating a velocity crossfade
For this key, let's create a simple velocity crossfade between
two stereo drumsamples.
1. On the left side of the page, make sure that DS1 and
DS2 are turned On.
Just press the On/Off buttons to toggle them, if necessary.
KEY Assign
2. Similarly, make sure that DS3 and DS4 are turned Off.
When they are turned off, most of their parameters will be
grayed out.
3. Select Stereo as the Bank for DS1 and DS2.
There are two main types of Drumsample Banks: Mono, and
Stereo*. For example in the case of Mono, Mono selects
mono drumsamples, and Stereo selects stereo drumsamples.
Note that stereo Drumsamples will require twice as many
voices as mono Drumsamples.
4. Press the Drumsample popup for DS1.
This brings up a list of Drumsamples, organized by
category. Use the tabs at the left of the display to browse
through the different categories.
For a list of the Drumsample names, please see the Voice
Name List.
5. Select a Drumsample by touching its name in the list.
6. Press the OK button to confirm your selection.
7. Do the same for DS2.
Now that you've assigned Drumsamples to DS1 and DS2,
let's set up the velocity ranges and crossfades.
8. Access the P5: Drum Kit– Velocity Split page.
The following settings can also be made from the Sample
Setup page, but the graphic in the right side of this page
provides a visual indication of the settings.
9. Set DS2's Bottom Velocity to 001, and its Xfade Range
to Off.
10. Set DS1's Bottom Velocity to 80.
Now, DS2 will sound when you play softly, at velocities of
79 or less–and DS1 will sound when you play harder, with
velocities of 80 or more.
11. Next, set DS1's Xfade Range to 20, and its Curve to Lin-
ear.
Notice that the graphic now shows the two ranges tapering
into one another. Between 80 and 100, DS2 will fade out, and
DS1 will fade in, creating a gradual velocity transition
instead of a hard split.
