Program mode
1–8: Chord Trigger Setup
1–8a
For each program, you can assign the note numbers and
velocities that will be produced by chord trigger switches 1–
4. You can assign up to eight note numbers and their
velocity for each chord trigger switch.
1–8a: Chord Trigger Switches
SW1
MIDI Channel
Here you can specify the MIDI channel on which the chord
trigger switch will transmit.
Gch: The switch will transmit on the global MIDI channel.
The program will sound.
Dch: The switch will transmit on the Drum Track MIDI
channel. The program of the drum track will sound.
Notes 1...8
These parameters let you edit the 8 notes assigned to each
chord trigger switch, along with a separate velocity for each
note. To play fewer than 8 notes, just set the unwanted notes
to Off.
Off: Select this to disable the note.
C–1...G9: This sets the note number.
001...127: This sets the note's velocity value.
As described below, there are two ways to make these
settings.
Settings
Use either of the following two methods to assign
individual notes or chords to the chord trigger switches.
Manual settings
Specify the desired notes and velocities for the parameters
listed above.
Automatic settings using the [CHORD ASSIGN]
switch
Here's how to turn CHORD ASSIGN on so that the notes
and velocity values you play on the keyboard will be
automatically assigned to the chord trigger switches.
1. Press the front panel CHORD ASSIGN switch (it will
light).
2. Play the keyboard.
If you're unable to play all of the notes simultaneously, you
can hold down a note and add additional notes by playing
them.
3. Press the switch to which you want to assign the set-
tings. The note numbers and velocities you played in
step 2 will automatically be assigned.

1–8
Menu
[Gch, Dch]
[Off, C–1...G9 / 001...127]
Note: As an alternative to the automatic assignment
procedure described here, you can perform the steps in the
order of 2-1-3. However in this case, you won't be able to
add notes one by one while holding down a note, as
described in step 2, above.
Copying notes from one chord trigger switch to
another
To copy the note assignments from one switch to another:
1. Press and release the switch whose notes you want to
copy.
2. Press the CHORD ASSIGN switch.
3. Press the switch to which you'd like to copy the notes.
The new switch will now play the same notes as the original
switch.
Merging two or more switches together
You can merge the assignments from two or more switches
together, as long as the total number of notes is 8 or fewer.
To do so:
1. Press all of the switches that you'd like to merge, and
then release them.
All of the switches must be held down at the same time.
2. Press the CHORD ASSIGN switch.
3. Press the switch to which you'd like to copy the notes.
You can even use one of the switches that was being merged,
if you like. After pressing the destination switch, you're
done.
Performance
Press a chord trigger switch, and the assigned note numbers
and velocities will be output.
The notes will be output with the note numbers and
velocities that were assigned for each switch, regardless of
the force (velocity) with which you press the switch.
Likewise when you use CHORD ASSIGN to specify the
notes, the memorized note numbers and velocity balance
will be always reproduced.
SW 2...4
These are the same as for SW 1, as described above.
▼1–8: Menu Command
• 0: Write Program ☞p.73
• 1: Exclusive Solo ☞p.73
• 2: Copy Chord Trigger Setup ☞p.75
For more information, please see "Program: Menu
Command" on page 73.
