Playing and editing Combinations

What's a Combination?
Combinations, or "Combis" for short, let you split and 
layer up to 16 Programs at once. 
A Combi is made up of 16 Timbres. Each Timbre has a 
Program, along with parameters for key and velocity 
zones, mixer settings, MIDI channel and controller 
filtering, and so on.
Combination overview
Combination Banks and factory sounds
OASYS ships from the factory with 384 factory‐
programmed Combinations. You can create your own 
original combinations by editing these factory‐set 
combinations, or by initializing a combination and 
starting "from scratch."
Over 1,400 Combination slots are left open for your 
own programming, or additional sound libraries. 
These Combinations are organized into 14 Banks of 128 
Combinations each, as described below.You can also 
store many more Combinations on the hard drive, or 
on external USB 2.0 devices.
The preloaded Combinations in internal (INT) banks A 
and B use only the basic PCM ROM, in addition to EXi 
sounds. The Combinations in internal bank C use the 
EXs1 ROM Expansion PCM, in addition to the basic 
ROM. For more details on the factory Combinations, 
please refer to the Voice Name List.
You can play a Combination and resample your 
performance, or sample an external audio source while 
listening to the sound of a Combination.

Combination page structure
The main P0: Play page offers access to the most 
important aspects of Combis, including:
• Selecting and playing Combinations
• Selecting individual Programs
• Making basic settings for KARMA
• Editing mixer settings and sound parameters via 
the Control Surface
• Quick sampling and resampling
Contents
As with Programs, each Combi has 12 Insert Effects, 2 
Master Effects, and 2 Total Effects, for shaping and 
transforming the sounds of the individual Timbres. 
Finally, Combis can use 4 KARMA modules at once, 
for complex and layered generated effects.
The detailed editing pages, P1 through P9, give you 
more in‐depth access to the Combi's powerful key and 
velocity zones, MIDI filtering, Vector Synthesis, 
KARMA, and Effects.
