Knob [1]
Mst Tune (Master Tune)
[430.0Hz...450.0Hz]
Adjusts the overall pitch in 0.1 Hz steps,
in terms of A4 as the reference pitch. Use
this when you need to tune the pitch of the
R3 to other instruments.

great deal of change with softly played
notes, so they may be more difficult
to control. Choose the curve that is
most appropriate for your playing dy-
namics or the effect you want to ob-
tain.

The settings you make here will apply to the entire R3, such as the overall tuning and the velocity curve.
Knob [2]
Transpos (Transpose)
Adjusts the overall pitch in steps of a
semitone (100 cents) over a range of one
octave up or down. Use this when you
want to transpose to suit the song you are
playing.

VelCurve (Velocity Curve) [1...8, Const127]
Different velocity curve let youtailor the re-
sponse of the keyboard to your own playing
style. Lighter curves are best for heavy-handed
players, higher curves may work better for
players with a light touch (☞Figure 40-1).
1 : This curve requires you to play strongly
in order to produce an effect.

requiring you to play very strongly.
7 : This curve produces a fairly steady ef-
fect with little change for medium-strength
playing.

Knob [4]
Position
[Post KBD, Pre TG]
Specifies the internal MIDI IN/OUT rout-
ing within the R3. This setting will affect
the way in which MIDI data is transmitted
and received, and how the arpeggiator
data is handled.
Post KBD:
In this position, incoming MIDI
data will be sent to the timbres without
being affected by the global or front
paneltranspose controls, and will not trig-
ger the arpeggiator. Data produced by the
keyboard will be converted according to
the internal settings, routed through the ar-
peggiator (arpeggiator notes are sent as
MIDI data), and then sent to the MIDI OUT
connector. (☞ Figure 40-2)
Pre TG:
Incoming MIDI data will be af-
fected by by the global settings, and will
act as trigger notes for the arpeggiator.
Data produced by the keyboard will be
sent to the MIDI OUT connector without
being affected by any setting other than
OCTAVE [UP] [DOWN] button. (☞ Figure
40-3)
