Here you can select the master effect types, switch them on/
off, specify chain order, and set the master EQ.
7.2–1a: Master Effect Setup
The master effects do not output the direct sound (Dry). The
return level ("Rtn 1, 2") sends the effect sound (Wet) to the L
and R bus, and this is mixed with the direct sound ("BUS
Select" L/R: 7.1–1a, 7.1–2a).
The master effects are monaural input. The sound that is
panned to L and R after passing through the oscillator and
insert effect is mixed to a monaural signal as adjusted by the
"S1 (Send1(MFX1))" and "S2 (Send2(MFX2))" levels, and
input to the master effects.
The master effects are mono-in stereo-out. Even when
a stereo-input type effect is selected, the input will be
MFX1 On/Off, MFX2 On/Off

Separately from this setting, you can use CC#94 to switch
master effect 1 on/off, CC#95 to switch master effect 2
on/off. A value of 0 will be off, and a value of 1–127 will
be the original setting. This is controlled on the global
MIDI channel "MIDI Channel" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a).
Master Effect 1, 2
Indicates the effect type for master effect 1, 2. You can select
from 89 types of effect: 01: St.Amp Sim–89: Reverb-Gate. If

will be muted.
Rtn 1, 2 (Return 1, 2)
Adjusts the return levels from the master effects to the L/R
bus (main output L/MONO, R).

Signal (Chain Signal)
When chain is On, this parameter speciﬁes how the stereo
output signal of the ﬁrst master effect will be connected to
the input (mono) of the next master effect.
L/R Mix: The stereo output L/R of the ﬁrst master effect will
be mixed before being input to the next master effect.
L Only, R Only: Only the left or right channel of the output
will be input to the next master effect.
Level (Chain Level)
Sets the send level from the ﬁrst master effect to the next
master effect when chain is turned on.
7.2–1c: Master EQ Gain [dB]
Sets the amount of cut and boost for the three-band EQ
located immediately before the AUDIO OUTPUT (MAIN
OUT) L/MONO and R jacks. This is linked with the various
"Gain" parameters of Master EQ (7.2–4).
The cutoff frequency for "Low," "Mid" and "High" and the
"Q" of "Mid" can be adjusted in the MEQ page. These set-
tings are in "dB" units.
