How to read the "Parameter Guide"
PROG 3: Ed–LFOs
Here you can make settings for the LFO that can be used to
cyclically modulate the Pitch, Filter, and Amp of oscillators 1
and 2. There are two LFO units for each oscillator. By setting
the LFO1 or LFO2 Intensity to a negative (–) value for Pitch,
Filter, or Amp, you can invert the LFO waveform.
Indicates settings for the "OSC1 LFO1," which is the ﬁrst
LFO that can be used for oscillator 1.

From the left, these symbols indicate a reference page in the
Parameter Guide, a reference page in the Operation Guide,
and a parameter number.
These symbols respectively indicate cautions, advice, MIDI-
related explanations, a parameter that can be selected as an
alternate modulation source, a parameter that can be
selected as a dynamic modulation source, and a parameter
that can use the BPM/MIDI Sync function.
Example screen displays
The values of the parameters shown in the example screens
of this manual are only for explanatory purposes, and may
not necessary match the values that appear in the LCD
screen of your instrument.
CC# is an abbreviation for Control Change Number.
In explanations of MIDI messages, numbers in square
brackets [ ] always indicate hexadecimal numbers.

Swap LFO 1&2
This exchanges the settings of LFO 1 and 2. If LFO2 is
selected in AMS1 (Freq. AMS1) or AMS2 (Freq. AMS2) of
LFO1 Freq.Mod (3–1b), then these settings will be invalid for
LFO2 after LFO1 and 2 have been exchanged. If you select
this from the OSC1 LFO1 or OSC1 LFO2 page, LFO1 and
LFO2 of OSC1 will be exchanged.
