GLOBAL 5.1: DKit
Here you can create a drum kit by assigning a drum instru-
ment (drumsample) to each key.
A drum kit you edit here can be selected in Program mode
PROG 2.1: Ed–Basic OSC1 page "Drum Kit" (when "Oscilla-
tor Mode" is Drums) as an oscillator, and processed through
the ﬁlter, amp and effects in the same way as a "multisam-
ple" (when "Oscillator Mode" is Single or Double).
When you wish to edit a drum kit, enter Program mode,
select a program that uses a drum kit (i.e., whose "Oscillator
Mode" is Drums), and then move to this page. A program
that uses a drum kit will already have ﬁlter, amp, and effect
settings etc. suitable for drum sounds. (Programs in the sep-
arate Voice Name List that use a drum kit are indicated by a
Even if a program with an "Oscillator Mode" of Single or
Double is selected in Program mode, the program will
sound using its own ﬁlter and amp settings etc. Effects will
sound according to the settings of the program you selected.
You must set "Octave" (PROG 2.1–2c) to +0[8']. With any
setting other than +0[8'], the key locations and drum sounds
will not correspond correctly.
If "Exclusive" (2.1–1b) is checked, the drum kit can be
edited using exclusive data.
When a drum kit is edited, all programs that use that
drum kit will be affected.
If you want the edited drum kit settings to be backed
up after you turn off the power, you must write them
Select the Utility "Write Drum Kits" to access the Write

Here you can select a drum kit, assign High and Low drum-
samples to each key, and set parameters for the High and

Selects the drum kit that you wish to edit.
If you wish to modify the drum kit name, use the "Rename
Drum Kit" Utility menu command.
Indicates the key to which you will assign a drumsample
(and its settings).
To select the key, use the [F6] ("Key–"), [F7] ("Key+") keys.
You can also select a key by holding down the [ENTER] key
and playing a note on the keyboard.
All 5.1: DKit parameters except for "Drum Kit" will apply to
the key you assign here.
Two drumsamples, High and Low, can be assigned to each
key, and you can switch between them by velocity as you
On (checked): The drumsamples you assigned for High
(5.1–1b) and Low (5.1–2a) will sound. Normally you will
check this parameter.
Off (unchecked): The selected drumsamples will be invalid,
and the drumsamples of the key to the right will sound. At
this time, the pitch will be a semitone lower than the pitch of
the key to the right. Uncheck this parameter when you wish
to play a drumsample at differing pitches.
Level H (Level High)
Level L (Level Low)
Speciﬁes the volume of the High and Low drumsamples.
Keys that are set to +99 will sound at a volume double that
of the amp level of the program that uses this drum kit. Keys
that are set to 0 will sound at the amp level of the program
that uses this drum kit.
Keys that are set to –99 will not sound.
Vel. SW L H (Velocity SW Lo Hi)
Speciﬁes the velocity value at which you will switch from
the Low drumsample to the High drumsample. Velocities
above this value will sound the High drumsample, and
velocities below this value will sound the Low drumsample.
If you do not wish to use velocity switching, set this to 001
and specify only the High drumsample ( "Velocity SW
L H" PROG 2.1–2(3)a).
