As in the 35. Mod-A page, this page lets you make additional settings for the modulator.
The parameters in this page have no effect if formant motion is on (FORMANT MOTION [ON/OFF] key lit).
GateSens (Gate Sensitivity)
Specifies the speed at which the gate will
operate according to the "Threshld" set-
Lower values for this setting will make the
gate close more quickly, causing the vo-
coder sound to decay more quickly.
Higher values for this setting will make the
gate close more gradually, causing the vo-
coder sound to have a longer decay.
If the "Threshld" value is high, this
effect will apply more readily. If the
threshold value is 0, there will be no
Sets the level at which the input source will
be cut. By setting this to an appropriate
level you can cut the noise that might be
present during times of no input. Higher
settings will make it more likely that the
input source will be cut.
With excessively high settings, there
will be more chance that the audio in-
put signal itself will be cut, making it
difficult for you to apply the vocoder
effect as intended.
Specifies whether the high-frequency por-
tion of the signal from AUDIO IN 1 that is
mixed into the vocoder output will be
passed only during the key-on (note-on)
duration, or will always be allowed to pass.
Disable: The high-frequency portion of the
signal will always be passed. This is effec-
tive when you are playing a guitar etc. that
is connected via an effect unit to [AUDIO
INPUT 2] jack.
Enable: The high-frequency portion of the
signal will be passed only during the key-
on (note-on) duration. Use this setting if
you are applying the vocoder effect only
to an internal sound source, or if you have
connected a synthesizer etc. to [AUDIO
INPUT 2] jack. (The signal will be passed
when a MIDI note-on is received.)
HPF Lvl (HPF Level)
This adjusts the output level from the HPF
(High Pass Filter) that extracts the high-fre-
quency components from the modulator
input source; these high-frequency compo-
nents are then mixed into the output of the
vocoder. Increase this value if you want to
emphasize the consonants of the vocal in-
