When you select a different Bank, that button's LED will light, and the selected bank will
appear in the left side of the display.
For example, to select bank B, press the PROG BANK [B] button. The [B] button will light,
and the name Bank B will appear in the left of the display. The [GM] button operates
differently from the other bank buttons. Each time you press this button, the bank will switch
in the order of G → g(d) → G → g(d) ... etc.
The programs are organized into banks of 128 (except for g(d)). Select the desired bank, and
then select a program number within that bank.
5. Play the keyboard to hear the program you selected.
While playing the keyboard, use the [MOD] wheel, [PITCH] wheel, [SW1][SW2], and
realtime controllers to modify the sound. The result will differ depending on the program, so
play the keyboard while operating these controllers to hear what they do.
For more about the controllers, see "Using controllers to modify the sound" ( ☞ p.5).
You can also press the [AUDITION] button (it will light) and a riff (phrase) suitable for that
program will play automatically.
