Basic Information

About the microX' modes
The microX has a wide range of capabilities; it lets
you play programs/combinations, edit them, play
the microX's sound generator using musical per-
formance data from an external MIDI sequencer,
and make settings that affect the entire microX,
such as transposition and tuning. The largest unit
used to organize these features is called a mode.
The microX has four modes.
Program mode
Programs are the basic sounds of microX. In Pro-
gram mode, you can:
• Select and play Programs
• Edit Programs
Make detailed settings for oscillators, filters,
amps, EGs, LFOs, effects, arpeggiator, etc.
• Create drum programs using drum kits (as cre-
ated in Global mode)
• Play and control one Arpeggiator (☞p.43)
Combination mode
Combinations are sets of up to 8 Programs that
can be played simultaneously, letting you create
sounds more complex than a single Program. In
Combination mode, you can:
• Select and play Combinations
• Use microX as a 8-track multitimbral tone gen-
erator
• Edit Combinations
You can use the Tone Adjust function to make
simple edits for the program of a timbre.
Assign Programs to each of the 8 Timbres, each
with separate volume, pan, EQ, and keyboard
and velocity zones; make settings for effects,
and Arpeggiator. (☞p.60)
• Control and play up to two Arpeggiator
Multi mode
You can use the microX as a 16-track multi-timbral
sound generator.
The microX will receive GM or other performance
data from an external MIDI sequencer, and play
back this data.
• Select and playback Multi sets
• Edit Multi sets
You can use the Tone Adjust function to make
simple edits for the program of a track.
Assign Programs to each of the 16 MIDI Tracks,
each with separate volume, pan, EQ, and
keyboard and velocity zones; make settings for
effects, and two Arpeggiator (☞p.69)
Global mode
Global mode lets you make overall settings for the
entire microX, and edit arpeggiators, drum kits
and external control sets. For instance, you can:
• Make settings that affect the entire microX,
such as master tune and global MIDI channel
• Create user drum kits, arpeggiators, user scales
and external control sets
• Rename program, and combination categories
• Set the function of the assignable pedals and
assignable switches
• Make settings for the external control function.
