While playing the keyboard, use the joystick, and realtime controllers to modify the sound.
The result will differ depending on the combination, so play the keyboard while operating
these controllers to hear what they do. You can use the OCTAVE [ † ][ π ] buttons to change
the pitch in steps of one octave.
Note: You can't use the [AUDITION] button to play a riff (phrase) in Combination mode.
Selecting combinations by category
In Combination mode you can select combinations by category just as in Program mode. For the
procedure, see "Using the [CATEGORY] and PROGRAM/COMBINATION buttons to select a
category" ( ☞ p.3).
Using controllers to modify the sound
You can operate the microX's joystick, OCTAVE [ † ][ π ], and realtime controllers to add expres-
sive variation to your performances.

will depend on the program and combination, but these controllers are normally used to apply
the following effects.
Deepen the vibrato
Deepen the wah effect
You can use the OCTAVE [†][π] buttons to shift the pitches assigned to the keyboard in one-
octave steps over a range of 3 octaves.
