Note: If an individual sample within the multisample is
already set to reverse, it will play in reverse without this
On (checked): The multisample will play in reverse.
Off (unchecked): The multisample will play normally.
Ofs (Start Offset)
In addition to simply starting playback from the beginning,
Multisamples can have up to 8 different pre-programmed
alternate starting points.
The Start Offset speciﬁes whether to use the normal start
point (Off), or to use one of the alternate start points (1st–
Some Multisamples may have fewer than 8 pre-
programmed points, in which case only the available points
can be selected.
This sets the basic volume level of the multisample. The
Amp section can modify this basic level extensively with
envelopes, LFOs, keyboard tracking, and other modulation;
for more information, please see "PROG P4: Amp/EQ," on
Depending on the multisample, high Level settings
may cause distortion when playing many notes at a
time. If this occurs, lower the Level.
Bottom Vel. (Bottom Velocity)
This sets the lowest velocity at which the Multisample will
sound. MS1's Bottom Vel. can be equal to, but not lower
than, that of MS2.
Xfd (Crossfade Range)
This sets the range of velocities over which MS1 will fade
into MS2, going up from the Bottom Vel.
For instance, if the Bottom Vel. is set to 64, and the Xfd is set
to 20, MS2 will start to fade in at velocities of 84 and below.
When velocities are within the Xfd, the Oscillator will use
twice as much polyphony as it would normally.
Note: You can only fade between two zones at once.
Xfade Range = 20
Curve = Linear
Bottom Velocity = 64
This controls the volume curve of the crossfade. Linear and
Power (short for Equal Power) let you ﬁne-tune the way that
the two Multisamples mix together; one or the other may be
more appropriate for a given pair of Multisamples. Layer,
true to its name, lets you layer the two Multisamples
together without any crossfading.
Linear means that the two samples will each be at 50% of
their full volume in the middle of the crossfade. Sometimes,
this may create a dip in the volume level; if so, try using
[Linear, Power, Layer]
Power, short for Equal Power, means that the two samples
will each be at around 70% of their full volume in the middle
of the crossfade. Sometimes, this may create a bump in the
volume level, in which case you might try selecting Linear
Layer means that the two Multisamples will be layered
together, both at full volume, for the entire range of the
MS2 (Mid Hi), MS3 (Mid Lo), MS4 (Low)
These are the settings for the second, third, and fourth
velocity zones. The parameters for MS2 and MS3 are exactly
the same as those for MS1, as described above.
The parameters for MS4 are also similar to those for MS1,
except that MS4 has no settings for Bottom Vel. (which is
always ﬁxed at 1), Xfd, or Curve.
[–2[32'], –1[16'], +0[8'], +1[4']]
This sets the basic pitch of the Oscillator, in octaves. The
default is +0[8']. The standard octave of a multisample is +0
This adjusts the pitch in semitones, over a range of ±1
This adjusts the pitch in cents, over a range of ±1 octave. A
cent is 1/100 of a semitone.
Freq Ofs (Frequency Offset)
This adjusts the pitch by increments of 0.1 Hz. Frequency
Offset is different from Tune in that, when used to detune
the two oscillators, it can create a constant beat frequency
across the range of the keyboard.
