Total Effect (TFX)
The total effect TFX is stereo-in and stereo-out. The Dry
(unprocessed) side of the Wet/Dry parameter sends the
stereo input sound directly to the stereo output. The way in
which the Wet (processed) side is output depends on the
type of effect, as follows.
Mono In - Mono Out
Mono In - Stereo Out
Stereo In - Stereo Out
109: P4EQ // P4EQ —153: BPM Dl // BPM Dl
For more information, please see "Mono–Mono Parallel
Effects" on page 276.
If you select 000:No Effect, the stereo input will be passed to
the stereo output without any processing.
Input/output variations for each effect are shown in upper
left of the block diagrams starting on page 356.
You can switch the effects on/off using the MFX1 or 2 ON/
OFF buttons or the P9:MFX/TFX– Routing settings in each
mode. When off, the effect will be bypassed. The stereo
input will be passed to the stereo output without any
processing, just as if 000:No Effect is selected.
Separately from this On/Off button, MIDI control
change CC#95 can be received to turn TFX off. A control
change value of 0 turns them off, and a value of 1–127
restores them to the prior setting. You can also use
Effect Global SW (Global 0–1b) to turn off TFX in the
same way. This is controlled on the global MIDI
channel (Global 1–1a).
Double-size effects (154: St.Mltband Limiter – 170: Early
Reﬂections) can't be used for the total effect.
The total effect TFX ia placed immediately before the
AUDIO OUTPUT L/MONO and R outputs. Effect (TFX) is
available in all modes.
If the Bus (IFX/Output) Select setting for an oscillator
(Program mode), timbre (Combination mode), track
(Sequencer mode), or the post-insert Bus (IFX/Output)
Select is set to L/R, the signal will be output from the
AUDIO OUTPUT L/MONO and R jacks.
The sound from MFX1 and 2 is routed through TFX, and
then output to AUDIO OUTPUT L/MONO and R.
MASTER (Master Volume)
This sets the level of the ﬁnal output after passing through
the total effect.
Using MIDI to control the Total
In the same way as for Insert and Master Effects, the Total
Effect can be controlled in realtime via Dynamic Modulation
(Dmod). You can use either the built-in M50's controllers or
an external MIDI device, during live performance or from a
Effect parameters are controlled on the global MIDI channel
Combination and Sequencer modes
In Combination and Sequencer modes, the control channel
for TFX is speciﬁed by the Ch (Control Channel) setting in
the TFX page. You can choose Ch01–16 or Gch.
Ch01–16: Choose from these settings if you want to control
each total effect on a separate channel.
Gch: Choose this setting if you want to control the total
effect on the global MIDI channel (Global 1–1a).
Note: In Sequencer mode, you can record and play back
exclusive messages, and edit tracks that include System
Exclusive events. This lets you switch effects or vary the
value of effect parameters while a song plays.
