Creating a Rhythm Pattern
There are two ways to create a rhythm pattern. The first is Step
Recording, in which you use the step keys to create the rhythm
as you view the lit/unlit condition of the keys. The second is
Realtime Recording, in which you strike the part keys at the
timing at which you want to record each note. If you wish to
erase the rhythm of each part before you create your own rhythm
data, refer to p.29 "Erasing rhythm data from a part."
• Using the step keys (Step Recording)
In this method, you use the sixteen step keys to create the rhythm
pattern while watching the lit/unlit condition of the keys to
verify the rhythm.
For details refer to p.16 "Using the step keys to edit the rhythm
(Step Recording)," in section 3. Basic operation (Quick Start).
• Using the part keys
For details refer to p.17 "Using the part keys to edit the rhythm
(Realtime Recording)," in section 3. Basic operation (Quick Start).
Adding accents to the rhythm
You can apply accents (changes in volume) to the rhythm pat-
tern. When Accent is on, the specified notes (steps) of the entire
pattern will be accented.
1. Press the ACCENT key, and the accent pattern will be shown
by the step keys.
2. Each time you press a step key it will alternate on/off, allow-
ing you to specify the desired accent pattern. You can play-
back the pattern to hear the results as you create the accent
3. The amount of the accent is adjusted by the LEVEL knob in
the synthesizer section. Rotating the knob toward the right
will increase the difference between on and off. If the knob is
rotated all the way toward the left, there will be no effect.
Play back the pattern to hear the results as you make this
Pressing the ACCENT key by itself will not produce sound.
Also, if a part key is struck to play the sound, it will be
sounded with Accent on (i.e., the emphasized sound). If
you wish to hear the results of Accent, you need to play
back the pattern.
Accent level cannot be recorded in a motion sequence.
