Comparing (original and edited
When you're in the process of editing a sound,
pressing the [COMPARE] button will recall the
saved version of the sound, as it was before you
started editing. To indicate that you are listening
to the saved version, the button's LED will light
Pressing [COMPARE] button again returns you to
the version you are editing, and the LED will go
out again.
If you edit while the COMPARE LED is lit, the
button will again go dark and your previous edits
will be lost.

Selecting a program for each timbre

Selecting a program for each
You can select a program for each timbre in the
COMBI 0: Play, Prog page or in the COMBI 1: Ed–
Tone Adjust, Prog page.
For the procedure, see "Changing the programs
within the Combination" (☞p.60)
Status and MIDI settings
"Status" and MIDI channel
This controls the status of MIDI and the internal
tone generator for each Timbre. Normally, if
you're playing an internal Program, this should be
set to INT.
If the status is set to Off, EXT, or EX2, that internal
sounds will not be played. Off simply disables the
Timbre entirely. The EXT and EX2 settings allow
the Timbre to control an external MIDI device.
Bank Select (when status=EX2)
When the Status is set to EX2, these parameters
allow you to transmit MIDI Bank Select messages
for changing banks on external MIDI devices.
MIDI Channel
Timbres that you wish to play from microX's key-
board must be set to the global MIDI channel.
Your playing on the keyboard is transmitted on
the global MIDI channel, and will sound any tim-
bre that matches this channel. Normally you will
set this to Gch. When this is set to Gch, the MIDI
channel of the timbre will always match the global
MIDI channel, even if you change the global MIDI
On some preloaded combinations, Timbres
used by arpeggiator may have their MIDI
Channels set to something other than Gch.
These will be timbres that play only when
arpeggiator is on–a very useful technique for
creating "arpeggiator-utilized" combinations.
For more details, see "The arpeggiator in
Combination and Multi modes" (☞p.95). In
particular, note the relationships between
arpeggiator assignments and MIDI Channel.
