The new Play Level function
This function adjusts the playback level when you play back a sample
created by resampling the ESX-1's Pattern mode or Song mode
playback.
If you set Play Level to "+12 dB," the resampled phrase sample
will play at approximately the same volume as when it plays in
Pattern or Song mode.
About the Play Level setting
You can individually set the Play Level for each sample to
specify its volume level (0 dB or +12 dB).
The Play Level is automatically set to the appropriate setting
when you sample or resample. Normally you will not need to
change it.
"0dB": The playback volume is not adjusted.
The Play Level is automatically set to "0 dB" when you
sample an external audio source in Sample mode or when
you load a new WAV or AIFF file from SmartMedia.
"+12 dB": The playback volume is raised by +12 dB.
The Play level is automatically set to "+12 dB" when you
resample in Pattern/Song mode.
Samples whose Play Level is set to "+12 dB" will sound at a
volume that is close to the maximum digital amplitude. This
means that the sound may distort if you play two more parts
simultaneously, or if you use the filter or effects. To prevent
distortion, lower the volume by adjusting the Level in the ef-
fect section.
In conjunction with this new function, the following additions and
changes have been made to the owner's manual. Please refer to this
material in conjunction with your Owner's Manual.
p.32: In "Convenient sample-editing functions," make the
following change to "Normalize"
Normalize (NORMALIZE) / Play Level
(PLAY LEVEL)
Normalize (NORMALIZE)
This operation boosts the level of the sample as much as
possible without causing distortion.
1. Use the dial to select the sample you want to normalize.
2. Hold down the SHIFT key and press step key 11 (NOR-
MALIZE). Key 11 will blink.
3. The upper line of the display indicates "Nrm/Lvl," and
the lower line indicates "Normlz" or "PlayLv." Use the
dial to select "Normlz," and press step key 11 once again.
4. The display will ask "Normaliz," "Sure?" Press step key
11 once again to execute Normalize (key 11 will go dark).
If you decide to cancel without executing, press the STOP/
CANCEL key.
O.S. Version 1.01 Addendum
Play Level (PLAY LEVEL)
PLAY LEVEL ......................................... 0 dB, +12 dB
This setting changes the playback level of the sample.
1. Use the dial to select the sample whose Play Level setting
you want to change.
2. Hold down the SHIFT key and press step key 11 (NOR-
MALIZE). Key 11 will blink.
3. The upper line of the display indicates "Nrm/Lvl," and
the lower line indicates "Normlz" or "PlayLv." Use the
dial to select "PlayLv," and press step key 11 once again.
4. The upper line of the display indicates "Play Lvl," and the
lower line indicates "0 dB" or "+12 dB." Use the dial to se-
lect the desired setting, and press step key 11 once again
to set the Play Level (key 11 will go dark).
If you decide to cancel without executing, press the STOP/
CANCEL key.
p.20: Make the following change to step 3 of "Auditioning
sample"
3. Turn the dial to select a sample. There are twelve types of
sample.
Only a number, such as "001": a monaural sample
" ": a stereo sample
" "" "" "" ": a slice sample
" ": a stretch sample
" ": the Play Level is "+12 dB"
p.20: Add to "What is a sample?"
The ESX-1 maintains a sufficient margin of internal amplitude
so that digital clipping (noise that occurs when a digital sig-
nal exceeds the maximum level) will not occur when you play
multiple parts simultaneously or when you use filtering or
effects. This amplitude margin is generally called "headroom."
The ESX-1 provides approximately 12 dB of headroom.
p.21: Add to "Sampling"
Samples that are set to "+12 dB" are indicated by a "+" sym-
bol added to their displayed sample number.
For samples that you resample in Pattern or Song mode, the
Play Level is automatically set to "+12 dB" so that the volume
will not appear unnaturally low, meaning that there will be
no headroom for playback (☞p.32).
When you sample the audio input in Sample mode, the
sample itself is sampled at an optimal level, but the output
volume for playback will be perceptually lower than during
sampling. This is intentional, in order to prevent the sample
from distorting when it is played back in Pattern mode. If

    desired, you can set the Play Level to “+12 dB” (☞p.32) so that the sample will play at essentially the same volume as when it was recorded. p.25: Add to “Directly sampling the sound of the ESX-1” A sample that you resampled in Pattern mode or Song mode will have its Play Level (☞p.32) set to “+12 dB”.
