accompaniment sequences (string, guitar, piano or other accom-
paniment instruments).
Just to summarize, when you play a chord on the chord recogni-
tion area, the arranger determines which Style Element is used,
then determines which Chord Variation should be used for the
played chord, then Style sequences for every track of that Chord
Variation are transposed from the original chord to the recog-
nized chord, and so on every time you play a chord.
The Pad's structure
A Pad is basically a single-track Style. Most of what applies to
Style recording also applies to Pad recording.
There are two different categories of Pads:
"Hit" Pads. While they are
mostly used as non-transpos-
ing events, they can also be
transposing notes or chords.
Basically, they are single-note
or single-chord Sequences
(see below).
"Sequence" Pads, i.e., complex
single-track patterns, that can
be transposed by playing dif-
ferent chords on the keyboard
– exactly as a Style track. They
are roughly equivalent to sin-
gle-element, single-track,
multi-chord variation Styles
(see illustration).
Each Pad is made up of up to six smaller units, called Chord
Variations (CV). Each Chord Variation is made of a single track
(the Pad track).
Exactly as with the Styles, when playing a chord in the chord rec-
ognition area, the corresponding Chord Variation is recalled.
Recognized chords are associated to a Chord Variation by means
of the Chord Variation Table. Each Pad contains a Chord Varia-
tion Table.
As with the Styles, the Note Transposition Tables (NTT) applies
to the Pads.
The same differences between the different types of tracks
applies (see "Track Type" on page 155).
Ordinary, Guitar and Drum tracks
There are different types of tracks (see "Track Type" on
page 156), and each of them is treated in a different way by the
arranger;
Acc (Accompaniment) and Bass tracks: When a chord is
recognized, the programmed chord notes are transposed to
a suitable scale, according to the Note Transposition
Tables (NTT) The NTT allows you to record just some
Chord Variations, and have all the notes play in the right
place, avoiding dissonances and transposing the pattern
notes to the notes of the recognized chord.
Drum & and Perc (Percussion) tracks: No transposition is
applied.The original pattern plays always.
What to record in a Style
Recording a Style means recording tracks, inside a series of
Chord Variations, inside a series of Style Elements, inside the
Style itself.
You don't have to record all Chord Variations for all Style Ele-
ments. It is often only needed to record a single Chord Variation
for each Style Element. Exceptions are the Intro 1 and Ending 1,
where we suggest to record both a Major and minor Chord Vari-
Pad
ations.
CV1
What to record in a Pad
Pad Track
Recording a Pad is a matter of recording a single track, inside a
CV2
series of Chord Variations, inside the Pad itself.
You don't need to record all Chord Variations. It is often only
CV3
needed to record just a Chord Variation.
CV4
Pattern data vs. track data
CV5
While the Style/Pad Record mode is where you can create or edit
CV6
the music patterns, track parameters (like Volume, Pan, Octave
Transpose, FX settings...) are to be edited in Style Play mode.
Sounds
There are two ways of assigning Sounds to the Style tracks.
Which Sounds are used by the Style tracks depends on the status
of the "Original Style Sounds" parameter (see page 110).
Note: When assigning a Sound in Style Play mode, the "Original
Style Sounds" parameter is automatically turned off.
Style/Pad Record mode
Recording Styles and Pads
Gtr (Guitar) tracks: When a chord is recognized, the
arranger triggers single notes, strumming and arpeggios on
a "virtual guitar", keeping care of the way notes are played
on the guitar keyboard. Note that inside a Guitar track you
can also have some parts typical of an Acc track - a useful
addition for short "free-form" passages.
After having created or edited music patterns in Style/Pad
Record mode, save them by selecting the "Write Style" or
"Write Pad" command from the page menu of the Style
Record mode (see "Write Style/Pad dialog box" on
page 162).
After having edited track parameters in Style Play mode,
save them to the Style Settings by selecting the "Write Cur-
rent Style Settings" command from the page menu of the
Style Play mode (see "Write Current Style Settings dialog
box" on page 129).
While in Style Record mode you can assign different
Sounds to each Style Element in the "Style Element Track
Controls: Sound/Expression" page (see "Sounds area" on
page 137). You can assign a Sound to the Pad in the same
page of the Pad Record mode.
While in Style Play mode, you can assign a single Sound to
the Style Settings (together with the other track parame-
ters), that remains the same for all Style Elements.
