Using and Editing Multi sets
There is one insert effect and two master effects,
and for each of these you can choose one of 89
effect types. The master EQ is a stereo three-band
The effect settings created and saved with a pro-
gram in Program mode are not used in Multi
mode. Effect settings are made independently for
the Multi set.
A multi set can use two arpeggiators (dual poly-
phonic arpeggiators). You can select the arpeggio
pattern, specify the range in which the arpeggio is
generated, and specify the region of notes (keys)
or velocities that will trigger the arpeggiator.

Comparing (original and edited
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
Pressing [COMPARE] button again returns you to
the version you are editing, and the LED will go
If you edit while the COMPARE LED is lit, the
button will again go dark and your previous edits
will be lost.
Just as in other mode, you can use controllers such
as the [MOD] wheel, pitch bend wheel,
[SW1][SW2], and REALTIME CONTROLS –
to add a broad range of expression to your playing
in Combination mode.
These controls let you modify the tone, pitch, vol-
ume, effects, etc. in realtime while you play.
Altering Programs to ﬁt
within a Multi set
You can make adjustments to the sound of the pro-
gram for each track, for example by changing the
way it plays or by adjusting its pitch or scale.
You can make various changes to Programs within
the context of a particular Multi set, to make them
ﬁt better with other Programs, or to create particu-
lar sonic effects. These changes do not affect the
original Programs, or how those Programs sound
in other Multi sets. It is the same as for a Combina-
tion. For more details, see "Altering Programs to
ﬁt within a Combination" (☞p.66).
