Multi mode has the following major functions.
• There are 128 multi sets. Each set lets you
assign a program to each of the sixteen tracks,
and you can combine these programs as splits
and layers just as in a combination.
• Each multi set lets you make settings for one
stereo insert effect, two master effects, and a
stereo master EQ.
• You can use two arpeggiators, and you can syn-
chronize them to your MIDI sequencer.
• By setting the "Status" of a track to INT or
BTH, you can play the X50 from your external
MIDI sequencer as a multi-track sound mod-
ule. (☞PG p.55 "Multi Mode")
• By setting the "Status" of a track to BTH, EXT,
or EXT, you can play an external sound module
on the MIDI channel of the "Control Track."
(☞PG p.56 "Multi Mode")
• You can control the program parameters of a
track in realtime using AMS (Alternate Modu-
lation) or control changes. You can also use the
MIDI Sync. function to synchronize the LFO
speed to the tempo.
• You can use the Dmod (Dynamic Modulation)
function to control effect parameters in real-
time. You can also use MIDI Sync. to synchro-
nize the LFO speed or delay time to the tempo.
• You can assign a name to the multi set and to
