Overall settings (GLOBAL)
The GLOBAL section lets you can make overall settings for the microKORG.
For example, although it is possible to individually adjust the pitch of each synth or
vocoder program, you can use the GLOBAL pitch settings ("MASTER TUNE" and
"MASTER TRANSPOSE") to adjust the pitch of all programs. When you are playing
the microKORG together with other instruments, use "MASTER TUNE" to match
the pitch. If you want to transpose the pitch of the song you are playing, you can
adjust "MASTER TRANSPOSE." In cases such as when you use multiple programs
in a single song, it is convenient to simply adjust the GLOBAL setting instead of
adjusting the pitch of each individual program.
Here you can also adjust the way in which your keyboard playing dynamics will
affect the velocity. If you want your playing dynamics to affect parameters such as
volume, set "VELOCITY CURVE" to Curve (
). Alternatively, you can specify a
constant velocity so that volume etc. will not be affected by your playing dynamics.
In addition, GLOBAL settings let you specify the MIDI IN/OUT routing within the
microKORG, or specify whether the signal input from AUDIO IN will be passed to
the output without modification.
