Simple program editing
You can edit any of the Programs shipped with
X50, or you can start with an initialized Program
to create sounds from scratch.
On the X50, you can use the eight sliders in the
Performance Editor display and the realtime con-
troller knobs and switches of the front panel to
make simple changes to a program without hav-
ing to enter the editing pages that contain the
detailed editing parameters.
By using the eight sliders of the Performance Edi-
tor, you can make overall adjustments to the sound.
When you move a slider, multiple program
parameters are adjusted simultaneously, meaning
that you can edit multiple parameters by adjusting
a single slider.
1. In Program mode (PROG 0: Play page), select
the program that you want to edit.
2. Press the [PAGE+] button (or [PAGE–] button)

Mode)" (PROG 1: Ed–Basic, Prog Basic page)
setting is Single, oscillator 2 will not sound.
Simple program editing
Only the level of oscillator 1 will change. For a
Drums program, this performance editor will
have no effect.
Amp Level: Indicates the amp level. This will
adjust the volume of the entire program.
Attack Time: Indicates the attack time of the
ﬁlter EG and amp EG. This will adjust the
speed of the attack from note-on.
Note: In order to maximize the effect of the
Attack Time adjustment, the amp EG Start
Level, Attack Level, Start Level Modulation,
and Attack Time Modulation parameters are
Decay Time: Indicates the decay time and
slope time of the ﬁlter EG and amp EG.
IFX Balance: This simultaneously adjusts the
"W/D (Wet/Dry)" balance of all insert effect.
MFX Balance: This simultaneously adjusts the
Return 1 and 2 parameters of the master effects.
Note: Depending on the settings of the program
