The effect section of the X50 provides one insert
effect, two master effects, one master EQ (stereo
3-band EQ), and a mixer that controls the routing
of these components.
Effects in each mode
Program mode
In Program mode, the insert effect can be used as
part of the sound-creating process, in the same
way that the output sound of the oscillator (OSC)
is processed by the filter and amp to create the
final sound. Then the master effects can be used to
apply spatial-type effects such as reverb. The ste-
reo 3-band master EQ located immediately before
the (MAIN OUTPUT) L/MONO and R outputs is
used to make final adjustments in tone. These set-
tings can be made independently for each pro-
gram.
PROG 8: Ed–InsertFX
• Select the BUS and master effect send level for
the oscillator output.
• Insert Effect routing, selection and settings.
PROG 9: Ed–MasterFX

Combination mode, Multi mode
In Combination mode, and Multi mode, the
insert effect can be applied to each timbre/track.
The master effects are used to apply overall spa-
tial processing, and the master EQ is used to make
overall adjustments in tone.
These settings are made in Combination mode
independently for each combination, and in Multi
mode for each multi set the entire mode.
COMBI 8: Ed–InsertFX
• BUS and master effect send level settings for
each timbre.
• Insert Effect routing, selection and settings.
COMBI 9: Ed–MasterFX
• Master Effect selection and settings.
• Master EQ settings.

Effect types
You can choose from 89 types of full-digital effects
for each effect. The effects are categorized as fol-
lows.
Categories of the 89 effect types
Effect No.
Filter and dynamics effects, such as EQ and
01–15
compressor
Pitch and phase modulation effects, such as
16–31
chorus and phaser
Other modulation and pitch-shift effects such
32–40
as rotary speaker and pitch shifter
41–51
Early reflection and delay effects
52–57
Reverb effects
Mono and mono-chain effects in which two
58–89
mono effects are connected in series
Here we will describe some representative effects
in each category.
Filter and dynamics control effects
Equalizers (07: St.Para.4EQ–08: St.Graphic7EQ)
divide the frequency range into several bands, and
allow you to boost or cut the level of each band.
Normally they are used to correct or compensate
the sound, but they can also be used to simulate
the frequency response that is typical of a particu-
lar instrument (such as the resonances of a guitar
or string instrument).
Compressors (02: St.Compressor) compress the
dynamic range of the input signal. Compression
makes the sound punchier and more consistent.
This is particularly effective on guitar, piano, or
drum sounds.
