Korg x50 music synthesizer operation guide.

Note: This value will be in effect when the
REALTIME CONTROLS C-mode [1] (ARP-GATE)
knob is in the center position (12 o'clock). Be sure
that the knob is in the center position when you
make this setting.
Setting the velocity of the arpeggiated
notes (Velocity)
"Velocity" lets you specify the velocity of the
arpeggiated notes. If this is set to Key, the velocity
with which you actually played the note will be
used. If a user arpeggio pattern is selected, you
can set this to Step. In this case, the value of the
"Vel(Velocity)" setting for each step (GLOBAL 5:
Arp.Pattern, Edit page) will be used.
Note: This value will be in effect when the
REALTIME CONTROLS C-mode [ARP-
VELOCITY] knob is in the center position (12
o'clock). Be sure that the knob is in the center
position when you make this setting.
Note: When a preload user arpeggio pattern is
selected, setting the "Gate" or "Velocity" to Step
will add a sense of groove to the arpeggio pattern.
Making the arpeggio pattern "shuffle"
(Swing)
"Swing" modifies the timing of the even-num-
bered arpeggiated notes, letting you give a "shuf-
fle" character to the pattern.

Specifying the range of notes in which
the arpeggiator will operate (Key Btm,
Key Top)
"Key Btm," "Key Top": The arpeggiator will oper-
ate when you play keys within the specified range.
Keys outside of this range can be played in the
normal manner, and will not be affected by the
arpeggiator on/off.
For example if you set "Pattern" to Preset-0: UP,
check "Latch," set "Key Top" to B3, and "Key
Btm" to C-1, playing a note B3 or lower will trig-
ger the arpeggiator. Since "Latch" is on, the arpeg-
gio will continue even after you release the keys.
You can use the C4 and higher keys to play con-

ventionally along with the arpeggio sounded by
the B3 and lower keys. To change the arpeggio,
play keys in the range of B3 and below.
Specifying the range of velocities in
which the arpeggiator will operate (Vel
Btm, Vel Top)
"Vel Btm," "Vel Top": The arpeggiator will oper-
ate when you play notes with a velocity (playing
strength) that is within the specified range. Notes
played with a velocity outside this range will be
sounded normally, without regard to the arpeg-
giator on/off.
Writing (saving) the arpeggiator set-
tings
Arpeggio parameters you edit in Program mode
are saved along with the data when you write the
program. For details on how to write, see "Saving
your edits" (☞p.45).
Linking the arpeggiator to a program
You can specify whether the arpeggio settings writ-
ten in a program will also be selected when you
switch to that program, or whether the existing
state of the arpeggiator will be maintained. With
the factory settings, the former setting is selected. If
you want to use the latter setting, check Program in
"Auto Arp" (GLOBAL 0: System, Basic page).
The arpeggiator in Combina-
tion and Multi modes
In Combination and Multi mode, the X50 provides
dual polyphonic arpeggiator functionality that
lets you use two arpeggio patterns simulta-
neously. The settings in each of these modes are
made in the similar way.
As an example, the following explanation shows
how to make settings in Combination mode.
Using the arpeggiators as you play in
Combination mode
1. Press a [COMBI] button. (The button will light.)
You will enter Combination mode. (☞p.57
"Selecting combinations")
As you select various combinations, you will
notice that the [ARP ON/OFF] button will light
for some combinations. When you play a key
on the keyboard, the arpeggiator will start.
