Arpeggiator settings
Setting examples
Although this is a somewhat sophisticated editing
technique, we will describe the settings of one of
the preset combinations as an example.
Combination B021: Urban Nature RnB
Select combination B021: Urban Nature RnB, and
play it.
Before you play, make sure that the global MIDI
channel (GLOBAL 1: MIDI "MIDI Channel") is set
to 01.
• Arpeggiator A is assigned to T (timbre) 4 and 5.
When you play the keyboard, the arpeggio pat-
tern Dr-Nature RnB will sound only the T4
program Trance/GarageKit.
• The arpeggio pattern uses the Fixed Note set-
ting, which is appropriate when playing a drum
arpeggio. ("Fixed Note" is checked in, GLO-
BAL 5: Arp.Pattern, Setup page.) With this set-
ting, the arpeggio pattern will always play the
specified pitches regardless of the note numbers
received from the keyboard. (☞p.102)
• The A "Key Btm" and "Key Top" (COMBI 7:
Ed–Arp/Ctrls, Scan Zone page) are set so that
arpeggiator A will operate only for notes B3
and lower.
• Arpeggiator A is also assigned to T5, but this is
so that the T4 program Trance/GarageKit will
sound only when the arpeggiator is on.

• If the arpeggiator is off, playing the keyboard
will sound the timbre(s) that are set to Gch or
to the global MIDI channel (in this case, 01).
Since the "MIDI Channel" of T4 is set to 02, it
will not sound. T5 is set to Gch, but since "Sta-
tus" is Off it will not sound.
• Any MIDI channel that is assigned to a timbre
will trigger the arpeggiator. In this case, these
will be "MIDI Channel" 02 and Gch (global
MIDI channel). When the arpeggiator is on,
playing the keyboard will trigger arpeggiator A
which is assigned to T5 (Gch). T4 will be
sounded by arpeggiator A. Since the "Status"
of T5 is Off, it will not sound.
• Since the "Status" of T5 is Off, it will not
sound, regardless of whether the arpeggiator is
on or off. It is a dummy timbre that causes T4 to
sound only when the arpeggiator is on.

Combination B071: "In The Pocket"
Select and play combination B071: "In The
Pocket."
Before you play, make sure that the global MIDI
channel (GLOBAL 1: MIDI "MIDI Channel") is set
to 01.
• Arpeggiator A is assigned to T7 and T8, and
arpeggiator B is assigned to T5. When you play
the keyboard, the T7 program HipHop Kit will
be sounded by the arpeggio pattern Dr-In The
Pocket. The T5 program Chord Trigger will be
sounded by the arpeggio pattern Bs-Echo.
• The B "Key Btm" and "Key Top" (COMBI 7:
Ed–Arp/Ctrls, Scan Zone page) are set so that
arpeggiators B will operate only for the G3
note and above.
• Arpeggiator B is assigned to T8 as well, but this
setting is so that the T7 program HipHop Kit
will sound only when the arpeggiator is on. See
the preceding section "Combination B021:
Urban Nature RnB."
Writing the arpeggiator settings
Arpeggio parameters you edited in Combination
or Multi mode are saved along with the settings
when you write the combination or multi set. For
the writing procedure, see "Saving your edits"
(☞p.61) for a combination, or to "Saving your
edits" (☞p.75) for a multi set.
Linking the arpeggiator to the com-
bination
If you want the arpeggiator settings of a combina-
tion to become active when that combination is
selected, check "Combi" for "Auto Arp" (GLO-
BAL 0: System, Basic page).
