Sound mode

The Sound operating mode is where you can listen to individual
Sounds, and edit them. In this mode, the selected Sound can
always be played across the full keyboard range.
Details on how to select a Sound are included in the "Selecting
elements" chapter (see "Sound Select window" on page 101).
While in a different operating mode, you can easily select the
Sound to be edited when switching to the Sound mode. Just
select the track the Sound to be edited is assigned to, then keep
the SHIFT button pressed while pressing the SOUND button.
Hint: This is also useful to see the Bank Select/Program Change
numbers when programming a Song on an external sequencer.

The MIDI channel

In Sound mode, Pa900 receives and transmits on the same chan-
nel of the Upper 1 track. If the Global channel is assigned, notes
can also be received on this channel. See "MIDI: MIDI In Chan-
nels" on page 260 and "MIDI: MIDI Out Channels" on page 261
for more information.

How to select oscillators

While in an edit page requiring an oscillator to be selected
for editing, use the vertical row of buttons on the right
(1...24 max) to select one of the available oscillators. The
number of available oscillators depends on the "Oscillators
Count" parameter (see page 205).
If you cannot see the desired oscillator, touch the scroll
arrow, until the hidden oscillator is shown in the display.
When oscillators cannot be select, since the parameter
contained in the current page are global and valid for the
whole Sound, these buttons are greyed out, and cannot be
selected.

Sounds, Drum Kits, Digital Drawbars

Pa900 features three different types of Sounds:
Ordinary Sounds. These are normal instrument Sounds,
like pianos, strings, basses.
Drum Kits. These are drum and percussion kits, where
each note of the keyboard is a different percussive instru-
ment. You can find Drum Kits in the Drum & SFX and
User Dk banks.
Digital Drawbars. These are Sounds with a very complex
structure, and a special usage, whose settings are saved into
a Performance. See "Digital Drawbars page" on page 203
for more information.
Before pressing MENU to access the edit pages, you should
select a Sound of the type you wish to edit or create.
Note: Notes pointing to special Drum Kit features are marked by
the
icon.
