If you play just one note, a unison will be played.
If you play a fifth, a "root+5th" chord will be
played.
With this mode, you can play rootless and slashed
chords, often used in jazz, fusion, modern pop
and light music. This type of chord recognition is
very useful to play piano chords typical of jazz
piano players. You don't always need to play the
root note, doubling the note already played by the
bass track.
Scale Mode
This parameter defines which tracks are affected by the selected
alternative scale (see "Scales" on page 355).
Keyboard Tracks
The scale will affect all Keyboard tracks.
Upper Tracks The scale will only affect Upper 1-3 Keyboard
tracks.
All Tracks
The scale will affect all tracks (Keyboard, Style,
Pads).
Memory Mode
This parameter sets the way the MEMORY button works.
Chord
When the MEMORY LED is on, recognized
chords are kept in memory even when raising
your hand from the keyboard. When the LED is
off, chords are reset when raising your hand.
Chord + Lower
When the MEMORY LED is on, recognized
chords are kept in memory, and the Lower sound
is held until the next note or chord is played.
When the LED is off, both the chord (and there-
fore the accompaniment) and Lower sound are
cut when raising the hand from the keyboard.
Fixed Arr. + Lower
When the MEMORY LED is on, recognized
chords are kept in memory, and the Lower sound
is held until the next note or chord is played.
When the MEMORY LED is off, the Lower sound
is cut when raising the hand from the keyboard;
on the contrary, the chord is kept in memory (so
that the accompaniment can continue to play).
Bass & Lower Backing
With this function, you can play a simple accompaniment with
your left hand. For this to work, the SPLIT LED must be turned
on, and the Style must not be running. By default, this function
is turned on.
On
When the Style is not running, and you play a
chord with your left hand, the chord is played by
the Lower Sound (even if it is muted), while the
chord root is played by the Bass Sound. When
you start the Style, the normal behavior is
restored.
When the Bass & Lower Backing
function is active, the Backing
icon appears in the Lower track Sound's area.
Mode Preferences: Song & Sequencer
Off
No Bass Sound is added when the Style is not
running. The Lower track can be heard only if it
is not muted.
Style Tracks Global Volume
In Style Play mode, the volume of the grouped Style tracks is a
global offset of the values memorized in the Style. When you
choose a different Style, this offset will not change, and the aver-
age volume of the Style tracks remains the same.
These controls allows you to globally set the balance between the
Drum/Percussion, Bass and Accompaniment tracks. For exam-
ple, if you prefer Drums and Bass to be prominent to make them
have more 'punch' , you can lower the grouped Accompaniment
tracks.
Changes are not memorized to a Performance or to the current
Style Settings. Instead, they are memorized as a global parame-
ter.

Volume level.
Mode Preferences: Song & Sequencer
In this page, you can set various general parameters for the Song
Play and Sequencer modes.
SMF Melody Track
This parameter lets you select the Song's Melody track for Stan-
dard MIDI Files. This track can then be muted by using the
"Song Melody - Mute" function, assignable to the footswitch.
Drum & Bass Mode - Drum
This parameter lets you select the Song's Drum track. This track
is left set to play (together with the Bass track) when selecting
the "Drum&Bass" function, assignable to the footswitch.
Drum & Bass Mode - Bass
This parameter selects the Song's Bass track. This track is left set
to play (together with the Drum track) when selecting the
"Drum&Bass" function, assignable to the footswitch.
Fast Play
When checked, this function allows to skip any empty setup
beats at the beginning of a Standard MIDI File, and immediately
start from the first note. While the beats are skipped, setup data
they may contain are read and considered.
Please note that, being audio data, any empty space at the begin-
ning of an MP3 file cannot be skipped.
