Using and Editing Multi sets
Other ways to select a multi set
You can't use a foot switch connected to the
ASSIGNABLE SWITCH jack to change multi sets.
For details on how to select a multi set via MIDI,
see p.77.
Assigning a program to a
track, and setting the volume
and pan
Selecting a track program from the
X50
1. Access the MULTI 0: Play, Program page.
This page shows all 8 Tracks at once, including
their Program assignments, volume, pan, play/
mute, solo, and more.
2. Use the ClickPoint to highlight "Program
Select," and use the [VALUE] dial etc. to select a
program.
You can use either of the following methods to
select a program.
• "Selecting programs from the front panel:"
( ☞p.37)
• When selecting by category, "Selecting pro-
grams by category" will be the only available
method. (☞p.38 "Selecting programs by cate-
gory")
Checking the sound of a track
Playing the X50's keyboard to hear the
sound
1. Use the "Control Track" setting to choose the
track that will respond to the X50's keyboard.
If "Status" (☞p.71 ""Status" and MIDI
channel") is INT or BTH, you can play the
X50's keyboard and operate its controllers to
70
hear the X50's internal tone generator with the
settings (program and level etc.) of the track
you specified as the "Control Track." Any other
tracks that have a matching MIDI channel will
also sound at this time. If the "Status" of the
track is EXT, EX2, or BTH, the corresponding
MIDI messages will be transmitted on the MIDI
channel that is specified for that track.
Receiving MIDI data from an external
sequencer to play the X50
By default, the X50's tracks 1 through 16 are set to
MIDI channels 1 through 16, with track 1 receiving
channel 1, track 2 receiving channel 2, and so on.
1. To hear the track (1) whose "MIDI Channel"
setting is 1, transmit performance data (MIDI
note-on/off messages) from your external
MIDI sequencer on MIDI channel 1.
If the "Status" is INT or BTH, the X50's tone
generator will sound. If the "Status" is Off,
EXT, or EX2, the X50's tone generator will not
sound.
Silencing a specific track (Mute)
The X50 provides a Mute function that lets you
temporarily silence the desired track(s) 1–16. For
example, you can use this to listen only to the
rhythm section while you record a new track. You
can also use this function to modify the structure
of the song.
1. Access the MULTI 0: Play, Program page.
2. Select the "PLAY/MUTE" and press the
ClickPoint center.
Each time you press, the PLAY and MUTE
settings will alternate.
If MUTE is selected, this track will not produce
sound even if it receives note data from the
X50's keyboard or from an external device.
Note: The mute setting of each track will not be
written (saved).
