Sound mode
208

Basic: Vel/Key Zone

Sound Controllers (Sound Controller 1, Sound Controller 2,
Sound Controller Y+, Sound Controller Y-) is activated. It
should be applied to Oscillators with Normal, Legato, Staccato,
Cycle 1, Cycle 2, Random, After Touch Trigger On, Y+ Trigger
On, Y- Trigger On, Legato Up and Legato Down trigger modes,
that can be turned off by using a switch, footswitch, or the Joy-
stick, programmed as a Sound Controller.
Basic: Vel/Key Zone
Here you can set a note and velocity range "window" for the
selected oscillator.
Velocity Zone
Here you can specify the velocity range for the selected oscillator.
Note: You cannot set the Bottom Velocity higher than the Top
Velocity, nor the Top Velocity lower than the Bottom Velocity.
0...127
Assigned velocity.
Keyboard Range
Here you can specify the note range for the selected oscillator.
Note: You cannot set the Bottom Key higher than the Top key, nor
the Top Key lower than the Bottom key.
C-1...G9
Assigned note.
Scaled Velocity
Use these parameters to scale velocity values received by the
oscillator. By using the "Velocity Zone" function (see above), an
oscillator may be limited to a restricted range (say, 10 to 20), that
may result in weak dynamics when the associated sample is trig-
gered.
By assigning a different value to these parameters, the restricted
range will be converted to a wider range (for example, the lowest
range value of 10 may be converted to a Scaled Velocity value of
0, and the highest range value of 20 may be converted to a Scaled
Velocity value of 127). All values included between the mini-
mum and maximum value are scaled accordingly.
As a consequence, you can create an RX Sound of guitar, by
assigning the guitar fret noise to the 10~20 velocity range. When
a dynamics value between 10~20 is received, the real velocity
value is scaled to the Scaled Velocity values, and plays louder.
0...127
Assigned velocity value.
Basic: Damper Mode
Here you can program how the Damper pedal works, the Reso-
nance/Halo effect, and the range within the Note Off message is
not sent to the selected Oscillator:
Damper Mode
Here you can program the Damper Mode for each Oscillator.
Damper Mode
This parameter determines how the Damper pedal works.
Normal
The Damper pedal works as usual: by keeping it
pressed, the note decay is lengthened, to simulate
the longer note decay of an acoustic piano.
Damper Off
The Damper pedal is deactivated for the selected
Oscillator.
Hint: Set the Damper to Damper Off, if you plan to
use the selected Oscillator in the Damper Trigger
page to trigger sounds. Check the Sound "Harmon-
ica DNC", and see how the Damper Trigger is
used.
Resonance/Halo
The Damper pedal enables a multisample, nor-
mally used for the Piano Resonance/Halo effect.
If the pedal is pressed when the note is already
playing, the speed at which the multisample
appears and disappears, and the volume it can
reach, depend on the "Resonance/Halo" parame-
ters programmed below.
Hint: This Damper mode is much more realistic
than the Normal mode, but also 'steals' more notes
from the overall polyphony, and is especially sug-
gested for solo piano playing.
Note: Half-pedaling, as well as Damper messages
received via MIDI (as Control Change #64), con-
trol the level of the Resonance/Halo effect.
