Layers, Splits, and Velocity
You can use keyboard regions and velocity to
switch between different tracks in a combination,
just as you can in a combination. For more details,
see "Layers, Splits, and Velocity switches"


Effects are covered in their own section of the
manuals, so we won't go into too much detail
here. (☞p.79)
Insert Effect
You can make settings for the insert effect in the
MULTI 8: InsertFX page.
The output of each track can be sent to the insert
effect. You can use any type of effects, from distor-
tions and compressors to choruses and reverbs.
The Insert Effect can be routed to the main out-
puts, or to any of the individual outputs. (☞p.84)
Master Effects
You can make master effect settings in the MULTI
9: MasterFX page.
There are two Master Effects, which are accessed
through Sends 1 and 2. These are best-suited to
effects such as reverbs and delays, but you can use
them with any type of effect. (☞p.85)
Master EQ
You can make master EQ settings in the MULTI 9:
MasterFX page.
The master EQ is located immediately before the
(MAIN OUTPUT) L/MONO and R outputs. Use it
to adjust the overall tone. (☞p.85)
