About the effects
The RK-100S provides a two-band EQ and two master effects. You can use the EQ
to modify the sound of each timbre, and use the master effects to apply spatial-
type processing to the overall sound.
For each master effect you can choose one of seventeen full-digital effects, which
are categorized as follows.
01–05: Filter and dynamics effects such as EQ and compressor
06–10: Delay-type effects
11–17: Pitch and phase modulation effects such as chorus and phaser
About the effect input and output
The master effects are stereo-in and stereo-out. In the "Dry/Wet" balance, the
stereo-input Dry signal (the sound not processed by the effect) is passed through
to stereo-output. The way in which the Wet signal (the sound processed by the
effect) is output will depend on the type of effect, with the following variations.
Mono In - Mono Out
Wet
Mono In - Stereo Out
Stereo In - Stereo Out
The input/output variation for each effect is shown on the upper left side of the
block diagram.
To obtain the best sound quality, you should set the input level to the master
effect as high as possible without causing clipping. This is done using the AMP
"LEVEL" parameter, the MIXER "OSC1," "OSC2," and "NOISE" parameters, and
the "Trim" parameter of each effect. Then use each effect's "Dry/Wet" or "Output
Level" parameters to adjust the output level of the effect.
About the delay time
Time Ratio
For delay effects, the actual delay time will be the delay time multiplied by the
"Time Ratio."
Delay time when Delay Tempo Sync is Off
If "Delay Tempo Sync" is Off, you'll be able to set the delay time in msec units.
For example,
• If "Delay Tempo Sync": Off, "L Delay Time": 800ms, "R Delay Time": 400 ms,
and "Time Ratio": 50%, then the actual delay time will be 400 ms in the left
channel and 200 ms in the right channel.
Delay time when Delay Tempo Sync is On
If "Delay Tempo Sync" is On, the delay time will synchronize with the tempo
specified by the TAP button (or by an external MIDI clock). Since the tempo will
follow the arpeggiator, this is useful for a live performance.
E ect
If "Delay Tempo Sync" is On, you'll be able to set the delay time as a note value.
E ect
For example,
• If "Delay Tempo Sync": On, "L Delay Time":  1/4, "R Delay Time": 1/8, and

"Time Ratio": 50%, then the actual delay time will be an eighth note in the left
channel and a sixteenth note in the right channel.
• If "Delay Tempo Sync": On, "Time Ratio": 100%, L Delay Time":  1/8, and "R
Delay Time":  . 3/16, then the delay time will be an eighth note in the left channel
and a dotted eighth note in the right channel.
Some effect types do not have a "Trim" or "Output Level" parameter.
There is no input level meter etc. to check the input level to the effect.
Insufficient input level will produce a poor S/N ratio, while excessive input
level will cause clipping.
If the specified delay time multiplied by the "Time Ratio" would exceed the
allowable range, the delay time will be set to the maximum possible value.
If the specified delay time multiplied by the "Time Ratio" exceeds the
allowable range, the delay time will be set to one half of the setting. If this
would still exceeds the maximum possible value, the delay time will be
