Motion sequence

Playing a motion sequence

A motion sequence can be played back in one of the following
two ways, and you can select the playback method indepen-
dently for each part.
SMOOTH: Knob values will be connected smoothly, and the
sound will change smoothly.
TRIG HOLD (trigger hold): The value of the motion sequence
knob will be held at the note timing of that part.
There will be no effect when the Motion Sequence LED is
dark (off).

Recording a motion sequence

You can record knob movements (motion sequence) for each
part. When recording a motion sequence, only one knob is valid
for each part. If you record a motion sequence on the same part
using a different knob, the effect of the previously recorded knob
will disappear.
For the recording procedure, refer to p.18 "Using a motion se-
quence" in section 3. Basic operation (Quick Start).
Motion sequences are recorded in realtime while you lis-
ten to the playback. It is not possible to partially modify a
motion sequence after it has been recorded. You will need
to keep trying until you record a motion sequence to your
liking. (Refer to p.30 "Erasing part or delay motion se-
quence data.")

Playing a delay motion sequence

A "delay motion sequence" is a special motion sequence just for
the delay effect. Unlike a motion sequence for a part, the move-
ments of two knobs, Delay Depth and Delay Time, can be re-
corded simultaneously. The playback method is the same as for
SMOOTH playback of a part motion sequence.
There will be no effect if the delay type MOTION SEQ
LED is dark.

Recording a delay motion
sequence
You can record the movements of two knobs, Delay Depth and
Delay Time.
1. Select the pattern that you wish to edit.
2. Press the TYPE key to select MOTION SEQ.
3. Press the Rec key to enter record-ready mode. (The Rec key
will light, and the Play/Pause key will blink.)
4. Press the Play/Pause key to start the pattern. (The Rec key
and Play/Pause key will light.)
5. Move the Delay Time knob to create various changes until
the pattern plays for one cycle (16 steps x length, or 12 steps
x length).
6. When the pattern has played for one cycle after you began
moving the knob, the Rec key will automatically go dark and
playback will resume, allowing you to hear the motion se-
quence that you just recorded.
You can record the movements of the Delay DEPTH knob in
the same way.
Motion sequences are recorded in realtime while you lis-
ten to the playback. It is not possible to partially modify a
motion sequence after it has been recorded. You will need
to keep trying until you record a motion sequence to your
liking. (Refer to p.30 "Erasing part or delay motion se-
quence data.")

Checking motion data

If motion sequence data has been recorded, you can hold down
the SHIFT key and press the MOTION SEQ key to view the
status in the step keys.
• If motion sequence data is included in the selected part
step keys 1, 2, 3, 4 will light
• If delay motion sequence data (Delay Depth data) is included
step keys 5 and 6 will light
• If delay motion sequence data (Delay Time data) is included
step keys 7 and 8 will light
It is not possible to check the status of motion sequence
data during playback or recording, or during Pattern Set
Play.
