For example, you may have CV Length = 4 and Rec Length = 4. If
you set CV Length to 2, and press START/STOP to begin record-
ing, Rec Length is still shown as 4, but it is in reality set to 2, and
recording will cycle for just 2 measures. After you press START/
STOP to stop recording, Rec Length is updated to 2, and all mea-
sures after the second measure are deleted.
CV Length (Chord Variation Length)
This parameter sets the total length (up to 32 measures) for the
selected Chord Variation. When playing a Style, this will be the
length of the accompaniment pattern, when the chord corre-
sponding to the Chord Variation is recognized on the keyboard.
Warning: If you reduce the Chord Variation Length after record-
ing, any measure after the selected length will be deleted. Be very
careful when setting the CV Length to a lower value after record-
ing! If it happens, we suggest to exit from record without saving
(see "Exit from Record" on page 161).

Hint: You can always change the Tempo, when other parameters
are selected, by keeping the SHIFT button pressed, and rotating the

Note: The actual Tempo of the Style will be the one shown when
saving the Style Settings in Style Play mode (see "Current Tempo"

This is the meter (time signature) of the Style Element or the Pad
Sequence. You can edit this parameter only when the Style Ele-
ment or Pad is empty, i.e. before you begin recording anything.

This parameter pair allows you to define the track's original key
and chord type, for the current Chord Variation. When playing
the pattern back, this chord will be played back exactly as it was
recorded, without any NTT processing (see above).
Note: To conform to Korg specifications, it is advisable to record
both the "Major" and "minor" Chord Variations for the Intro 1 and
Ending 1 Style Elements.
When you select a track, the original key/chord assigned to the
selected track will be shown. All recorded tracks will play back
on that key/chord. For example, if the original key/chord for the
Acc1 track is A7th, when selecting the Acc1 track all the remain-
ing tracks will play on the A7th key/chord.
In the example above, you will record the Acc1 track in the
AMajor key, with notes pertaining to the A7th scale. This exact
pattern will be recalled, when an A7th chord will be recognized.
