Basic oscillator settings

Comparing (original and edited
sounds)
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
up.
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.
Basic oscillator settings
Program type setting (single, dou-
ble, drum kit)
Here you can specify the type of program
(whether to use one oscillator, two oscillators, or a
drum kit). Use the PROG 1: Ed–Basic, Prog Basic
"Oscillator Mode" to specify the program type.
Single Programs have one oscillator, and Double
Programs have two oscillators. Each oscillator
includes a complete synthesis voice, with velocity-
switched Multisamples, dual filters, EGs, LFOs,
and so on.
Drums mode is a special variation of Single mode,
and uses a Drum Kit (as created in Global mode)
instead of Multisamples.
Polyphony
Polyphony is the number of notes that can be
played simultaneously, such as in a chord. The
polyphony depends on the program type.
