Insert Effects (IFX1–IFX5)
Insert Effects (IFX 1–5) have a stereo input and a stereo
output. If you set the Wet/Dry parameter to Dry (no effect),
the input signal will be passed through, in stereo, without
being processed by the effect. If you select Wet (effect
applied), the processed signal will be output in one of the

Mono In/Out Effect
These effects are typically stereo-in/stereo-out, but they
have a special structure. The L channel and R channel of the
stereo input each have their own independent mono effect.
Each mono output can then be panned to the desired
position in the stereo ﬁeld.
• Track1: Piano, Pan=L001, Bus (IFX/Output) Select=IFX1
• Track2: E.Piano, Pan=R127, Bus (IFX/Output)
So that you don't mix the sound of the two tracks that are
being input, set the P0: Play/REC Pan parameter to L001
and R127 respectively.
Example: IFX1: 116: P4EQ // Phaser
Track 1: Piano is sent to the L channel P4EQ, and Track 2:
E.Piano is sent to the R channel Phaser. Use the P8: IFX–
IFX1 page Pan parameter to set the output position of each
sound. In this example, both are set to C064. See the diagram
IFX1: 116: P4EQ // Phaser
Input/output variations for each effect are shown in upper
left of the block diagrams starting on page 356.
If you select 000: No Effect, stereo input signals are output
in stereo without being processed.
Pressing the On/Off button of IFX1–IFX5 in the P8:IFX–
Insert FX Setup pages in each mode will toggle between On
and Off. When Off is selected, the effect will be bypassed,
and the stereo input signal will be output in stereo without
The M50 can also turn IFX1–IFX5 off separately from
the setting of the On/Off button by receiving MIDI
control change message CC#92. Value 0 will turn them
off, and value 1–127 will turn them on.
You can also use "Effect Global SW" (Global 0–1b) to
turn IFX1–5 on and off. This MIDI control is performed
on the global MIDI channel (Global 1–1a).
Double-size effects (154: St.Mltband Limiter – 170: Early
Reﬂections) use twice as much space as other effects.
You can use double-size effects for insert effects IFX1–IFX4
and master effect MFX1. However, the effect of the number
that follows it will be unavailable. For example if you've
selected a double-size effect for IFX1, you won't be able to
use IFX2. If you've selected a double-size effect for MFX1,
you won't be able to use MFX2.
