SYNTH/VOCODER
[Synthesizer, Vocoder]
Switches the currently selected pro-
gram between a Synthesizer pro-
gram and a Vocoder program.
Synthesizer (
):
The program will be a synth pro-
gram. You can use two oscillators
to create the sound.
Vocoder (
):
The program will be a vocoder pro-
gram. You can use sound input
from a connected mic to produce
"talking" instrument effects.
The parameters for editing will
vary depending on whether
Synthesizer or Vocoder is se-
lected here.

1. VOICE
— SYNTH/VOCODER
These settings determine the basic character of the program, and how it will sound.
"SYNTH/VOCODER" (knob 1) specifies whether the program will be a synth program or a vocoder program. If you want this to be a synth
program, select Synthesizer (
). "SINGLE/LAYER" (knob 2) specifies whether both timbres will be used (Layer) in the case of a synth
program. Other parameters in this section specify whether the program will sound monophonically/polyphonically/unison, and how the
notes will be triggered.
If you simultaneously press more keys than the specified number of voices, the last-pressed key will take priority.

Timbre1
The maximum polyphony is four
voices (four notes). In the case of
a Layer program, these four
voices are divided between tim-
bres 1 and 2, so only two keys can
be played in a layered program.
TRIGGER MODE
[Mono, Poly, Unison]

will be retriggered when you play
the next key while still holding
down the previous key.
