This controls the level of the external audio signal. The
default is 127.
The analog audio signals from AUDIO INPUTS 1–4 are
converted into digital form by an A/D converter. This
parameter sets the level of the signal immediately after
If the sound is distorted even though this level setting
is very low, see "Tips for eliminating distortion when
using the analog inputs" on page 108.
Avoiding extraneous noise
If audio cables are connected to AUDIO INPUTS 1–
4, any noise carried by the cables will enter into the
OASYS mixer structure. Similarly, the S/P DIF input
may carry noise from external devices. This may
include hiss, hum, and other audio noise.
To avoid noise from unused audio inputs, either:
• Set the input's Level to 0
• Set all of the bus assignments to Off, including Bus
Select (IFX/Indiv. Out Assign), REC Bus, and FX
If no audio cables are connected to AUDIO INPUTS
1–4, the input signals are forced to zero, preventing
any additional noise.
Audio Track Mixer
You can specify the audio source to record from, and
change the Play/Mute status, SOLO status, pan, and
volume for playback.
This selects the source that will be recorded on the
track. The signal of the bus line you specify here will be
recorded. See below for a diagram of buses when
recording from the audio inputs; for more detailed
diagrams, see under "0–2: Audio Track Mixer" on
page 477 of the Parameter Guide.
Audio input settings and recording source selection
If you set the "Track Select" field to Audio Track, you
will be able to monitor the REC Source of that track.
The mode of operation will differ depending on
whether adjacent audio tracks are paired ("Stereo
Pair") or not.
Audio Input 1...4, Audio Input 1/2, Audio Input 3/4,
S/P DIF L, R, S/P DIF L/R: Choose these if you want to
directly record the audio input from the AUDIO
INPUT 1–4 or S/P DIF jacks. The input from the
AUDIO INPUT 1–4 or S/P DIF jacks will be recorded
directly without passing through the L/R bus, REC
buses, or Individual buses. AUDIO INPUT 1, 2, 3, 4,
1/2, 3/4, or S/P DIF L, R inputs will be connected
directly, regardless of the Audio Input settings for "Bus
(IFX/Indiv)," Pan, and "Level." "Level," "Solo," and
"Play/Mute." See "REC Source = Audio Input 1, 2, 1/2"
If "Stereo Pair" is on and Audio Input 1/2 is selected,
AUDIO INPUT 1 will be input to the odd‐numbered
track, and AUDIO INPUT 2 will be input to the even‐
numbered track. Similarly, Audio Input 3/4 and
S/P DIF L/R will be input to the odd‐numbered and
even‐numbered tracks respectively.
L, R, L/R: The L/R bus after passing through TFX 1 and
2 will be recorded. Choose this if you want to record an
external audio signal being sent to the L/R bus, or the
sound being produced by the OASYS (and sent to the
L/R bus) in response to sequencer playback, keyboard
playing, or MIDI input.
If "Stereo Pair" is on, L is sent to odd‐numbered tracks,
and R is sent to even‐numbered tracks.
REC 1, 2, 1/2, REC 3, 4, 3/4: The REC 1/2 or REC 3/4
buses will be recorded. Choose this if you want to
record only the audio input while hearing the
sequencer playback and your keyboard playing from
the L/R outputs. You can also mix several audio inputs
to the REC buses, or use the REC buses to mix the
direct sound from the audio inputs with the sound
processed by insert effects, and record the result.
If "Stereo Pair" is on, REC bus 1 (3) is sent to odd‐
numbered tracks, and REC bus 2 (4) is sent to even‐
Indiv.1...8, Indiv.1/2, Indiv.3/4, Indiv.5/6, Indiv.7/8:
The Indiv.1/2–Indiv.7/8 buses will be recorded.
Similarly to when using the REC buses, you can choose
this when you want to monitor the L/R output while
recording only the audio input.
If "Stereo Pair" is on and you've selected Indiv.1/2, the
Indiv. bus 1 will be sent to odd‐numbered tracks, and
Indiv. bus 2 will be sent to even‐numbered tracks.
Use this to mute an audio track, or to select the
recording tracks for multi‐track recording. During
playback, or for single‐track recording (normal
recording), it is possible only to select Play or Mute for
tracks (playback tracks) other than the recording track.
For multi‐track recording, tracks can be set to Play,
Mute, or Rec. The setting will alternate each time you
press the Play/Rec/Mute button.
This turns the Solo function on/off.
