Sampling a guitar from the audio inputs,
while listening to a KARMA-generated
Here we'll explain how you can sample just the sound
of an external input source while listening to a
performance generated by the KARMA function.
You can do this by modifying the settings in step 5 of
the preceding "Mixing a KARMA‐generated drum
phrase ..." to change them as follows.
Bus Select (IFX/Indiv.): Off
REC Bus: 1
The input from AUDIO INPUT 1 will be sent to REC
– Sampling Setup –
Source Bus: REC 1/2
The sound sent to REC bus 1/2 will be sampled. The
sound of the internal tone generator sent to the L/R
bus will not be sampled.
The sound of the internal L channel will be sampled
Modify the settings as shown above, sample your
playing, and then listen to the sample.
Examples of sampling in Sequencer mode
When you sample an external audio source while
listening to the song playback, the In‐Track Sampling
function automatically creates the appropriate note
data in a track.
When you play back the song, the automatically‐
created note data will trigger the multisample that was
automatically converted to a program.
In this example, we'll show the sound of a guitar

1. In Sequencer mode, select the song to which you
want to add the guitar sound.
You can either create a song, or use Disk mode to
load a previously‐created song.
2. Connect your guitar to the rear panel AUDIO
INPUT 1 jack.
Press the AUDIO INPUT MIC/LINE switch inward
to select the LINE position, and set the LEVEL knob
at about the center.
If you connect a guitar with passive pickups (i.e., a
guitar that does not contain a preamp), you will be
unable to sample it at the correct level because of the
impedance mismatch. Such guitars should be
routed through a preamp or an effect unit.
