While arpeggiator parameters are for the most part edited in
PROG 7: Ed–Arp/Ctrls, Some major parameters can be
edited here as well. When you are playing in PROG 0: Play,
you can edit the arpeggiator in realtime, such as changing
the arpeggio pattern etc.
You can also use the REALTIME CONTROLS C-mode [ARP-
GATE], [ARP-LENGTH], [ARP-VELOCITY], and [TEMPO]
knobs to edit the arpeggio in realtime (☞OG p.91).
Make settings for the program arpeggiator (☞"PROG: Ed–
Arp/Ctrls"). These parameters can also be set from 7: Ed–
Arp/Ctrls Setup page (☞7–1a).

0–4: Ext. Control
External control lets you use the REALTIME CONTROLS
knobs to control an external MIDI device. You can assign a
MIDI control change and MIDI channel to each of the four
knobs, and switch between three such settings (A, B, C) to
control your external device. One set lets you transmit a
total of twelve (4 × 3) different MIDI control changes. These
are called "external control sets," and you can choose from
64 such sets.
For example you can use this to control parameters such as
level or pan on your DAW (digital audio workstation), or ﬁl-
ter or envelope on your software synthesizer. Simply switch
between external control sets to choose the parameters you
want to control.
The external control function is independent of programs or
combinations. When you press the [EXT. CONTROLLER]
button to turn this function on (the LED will light), the exter-
nal control set you've selected will not change even if you
change programs or switch to Combination mode or Multi
mode. This means that you can choose different sounds
without affecting how you're controlling your external MIDI
device. Conversely, you can switch to other types of external
MIDI control without changing programs.
This page only displays the settings that are assigned to
knob sets A, B, and C. Use Global mode to make exter-
nal control assignments.

Ext. Control (Setup Select)
Selects an external control set.
This setting is not written (saved) in the program.
Shows the settings assigned to each knob of the external
control set. The currently-enabled set is highlighted. Use the
[SELECT] button to switch between groups (A, B, C).
Indicates the MIDI channel
Gch: The message will be transmitted on the global MIDI
channel you specify in Global mode. The channel of all
knobs that are set to Gch can be changed simply by chang-
ing the global MIDI channel setting, instead of having to
change the channel of each knob individually.
