You can use up to ﬁve channels (IFX 1–5) for the Insert
Effects in any mode.
Use Bus (IFX/Output) Select (Prog 8–1b) to set the
destination bus of the oscillator output.
L/R: Send the output to the L/R bus. Instead, it is sent to
AUDIO OUTPUT L/MONO and R after the TFX.
IFX1...5: The signal is sent to Insert Effects IFX 1–5.
Off: The output will not be sent to the L/R bus, or IFX1–5
buses. Choose the Off setting if you want to connect the
oscillator output to a master effect in series. Use Send1 (to
MFX1) and Send2 (to MFX2) to adjust the send level.
Use Send1 (to MFX1) and Send2 (to MFX2) (Prog 8–1d) to
specify the send level for the Master Effects. This setting is
effective if Bus (IFX/Output) Select (Prog 8–1b) is set to L/R
If Bus (IFX/Output) Select is set to IFX1–5, use Send1 and
Send2 (Prog 8–2a) to specify the send level of the post-IFX
Send1 responds to CC#93, and Send2 responds to
CC#91. At this time, the actual send level uses the value
of the Send 1 and 2 settings for Oscillators 1 and 2,
multiplied by the Send 1 and 2 values received via
In the example shown in the next diagram, Oscillators 1 and
2 outputs being sent to IFX1.
If you are connecting the Insert Effects in series, check the
Chain box (Prog 8–2a). Use Chain to (Prog 8–2a) to specify
the destination to which the signal will be chained.
If you check the IFX1 checkbox, the output of IFX1 will be
sent to the input of the IFX you specify in "Chain to." Effects
can be chained only in ascending order of their number; for
example IFX1 can be chained to IFX2 through IFX5, and
IFX2 can be chained to IFX3 through IFX5. You can create a
chain of up to ﬁve insert effects in series, IFX1 through IFX5.
When the Insert Effects are connected in series, the values of
the Pan: CC#8, Bus, Send1, and Send2 parameters for the
post-IFX signal will be used.
In the example shown in the next diagram, the Chain check
box is checked, and each Chain to parameter is set to the
subsequent effect, creating a series connection of IFX1 →
IFX2 → IFX3 → IFX4 → IFX5. The post-IFX5 settings for Pan:
CC#8, Bus, Send1, and Send2 will be used.

Settings for drum programs
If you have selected "Drums" for Oscillator Mode (Prog 1–
1a) of a Program, the "Use DKit Setting" box (Prog 8–1c)
becomes available. For more information, please see next
If you check this box, Bus (IFX/Output) Select, FX Control
Bus, Send1, and Send2 (Global 5–4b) for each key of the
selected DrumKit becomes effective. For example, you can
send a snare sound to IFX1 to apply the Gate effect, a kick
sound to IFX2 to apply EQ, and other sounds to AUDIO
OUTPUT L/MONO and R without applying any Insert
Tip: In most of the preloaded drum kits, the following types
of drum instrument have the same Bus (IFX/Output) Select
Snares → IFX1
Kicks → IFX2
Other → IFX3
If you de-select the box, all drum instrument outputs are
sent to the bus speciﬁed by Bus (IFX/Output) Select (Prog
8–1b). You may apply any Insert Effects to all drum
instruments, regardless of the DrumKit settings.
Combination and Sequencer modes
Use Bus (IFX/Output) Select (Combi/Seq 8–1–1(2)d) for
timbres (Combination) and tracks (Sequencer) to select an
Insert Effect to apply to the corresponding timbres and
tracks. You can route multiple timbres and tracks to a single
Tip: You can use each timbre/track's Bus (IFX/Output)
Select, post-IFX Chain to and Chain parameters (Combi/
Seq 8–1–3b) to create a variety of routings.
Example: Inserting one IFX into two or more timbres
