How to leave the current display
For most operations or displays (except for the File mode, Song/Pattern Record mode, and Remote Control mode), pressing the [EXIT] button will let you leave the current display and return you to the previous one. You can return back to any of the modesVoice Play, Performance Play, Song Play, Pattern Play, and Master Playby pressing the [EXIT] button several times in the respective mode.


Keyboard octave setting (MO6)
Sometimes when playing a voice, you may wish to play in a lower or higher pitch range. For example, you may want to shift the pitch down lower to get extra bass notes, or shift up to get higher notes for leads and solos. The Octave Up/Down controls let you do this quickly and easily. Each time you press the [OCTAVE UP] button on the panel, the overall pitch of the voice goes up by one octave. Likewise, each press of the [OCTAVE DOWN] button takes the pitch down by one octave. The range is from -3 to +3, with 0 being standard pitch. When this is set to Octave Up, the lamp of the [OCTAVE UP] button lights, and when it is set to Octave Down, the [OCTAVE DOWN] buttons lamp lights. The current octave setting is shown at the top right of the display. You can instantly restore standard pitch (0) by simultaneously pressing both the [OCTAVE UP] button and the [OCTAVE DOWN] button (both lamps turn off).
The Octave setting made here is automatically reected in the identical Octave parameter in the Utility mode ([UTILITY] [F1] GENERAL [SF2] KBD Octave). This setting is available in all modes.
Transpose setting of the keyboard
You can set the amount in semitones by which the range of the keyboard is shifted up or down as well as the octave setting.
Move the cursor to Transpose by using the Cursor button.
Change the Transpose value by using the [INC/YES], [DEC/NO] buttons and data dial.
Press the [STORE] button to store the Transpose setting to internal Flash ROM.
Make sure to execute step 5. The settings made in step 4 will be lost if you turn the power off without executing step 5.

Determines the degree to which velocity affects the Cutoff frequency of the Filter EG. For positive values, the more strongly you play the keys, the greater the change in the Cutoff frequency. Negative values do the opposite; the more softly you play, the greater the change in frequency.


Determines the degree to which velocity affects the Resonance of the Filter EG. For positive values, the more strongly you play the keys, the greater the Resonance change. Negative values do the opposite; the more softly you play, the greater the change in Resonance.
[SF3] FEG (Filter Envelope Generator)
From this display you can make all the time and level settings for the Filter EG, which determine how the tonal quality of the sound changes over time. These can be used to control the change in Cutoff Frequency from the moment a note is pressed on the keyboard to the moment the sound stops. The full names of the available parameters are shown in the chart below, as they appear in the display. HOLD TIME LEVEL Hold time Hold level ATK Attack time Attack level DCY1 Decay1 time Decay1 level DCY2 Decay2 time REL Release time Depth DEPTH
Settings: TIME: LEVEL: -+127 DEPTH: -+63 n For details on the FEG, see page 133.
CutoffSens (Cutoff Sensitivity)
Determines the degree to which the notes (specically, their position or octave range) affect the Filter of the selected Element. A Center Key setting (next parameter) of C3 is used as the basic setting by the Cutoff parameter. A positive setting will lower the Cutoff frequency for lower notes and raise it for higher notes. A negative setting will have the opposite effect.

Settings: -+200

This indicates that the central note for Cutoff Sensitivity above is C3. At C3, the tone remains unchanged. For other notes played, the Cutoff Frequency varies according to the particular note and the Cutoff Sensitivity setting. Keep in mind that this is for display purposes only; the value cannot be changed.

Settings: C -2 G8

Determines the degree to which the notes (specically, their position or octave range) affect the Filter EG times of the selected Element. The basic speed of change for the FEG is at the note specied in the Center Key (next parameter). A positive setting will cause slower changes for lower notes and faster changes for higher notes. A negative setting will have the opposite effect.

[F2] RECALL (Edit Recall)
If you are editing a Voice and select a different Voice without storing your edited one, all the edits youve made will be erased. If this happens, you can use Edit Recall to restore the Voice with your latest edits intact.


Source Voice
From this display you can copy Common and Element/Drum Key parameter settings from any Voice to the Voice you are editing. This is useful if you are creating a Voice and wish to use some parameter settings from another Voice. Data type to be copied (Type) Common: Data in the Common Edit mode Element (1 4): Data of the corresponding Element Edit parameters Key C0 C6: Data of the corresponding Key Edit parameters

Micro Tuning List

[VOICE] [EDIT] [COMMON] [F1] GENERAL [SF2] PLY MODE M.TuningNo./M.TuningRoot (page 153)

M.TuningNo. 00

Type Equal Temp (Equal temperament)

M.TuningRoot --

Comments The compromise tuning used for most of the last 200 years of Western music, and found on most electronic keyboards. Each half step is exactly 1/12 of an octave, and music can be played in any key with identical pitch relationships. However, none of the intervals are perfectly in tune. This tuning is designed so that most of the intervals (especially the major thir d and perfect fth) in the major scale are pure. This means that other intervals will be correspondingly out of tune. You need to specify the key (C B) you will be playing in. The same as Pure Major, but designed for the minor scale. Andreas Werckmeiser, a contemporary of Bach, designed this tuning so that keyboard instruments could be played in any key. Each key has a unique character. Johann Philipp Kirnberger, an 18th century composer, created this tempered scale to allow performances in any key. Francescatonio Vallotti and Thomas Young (both mid-1700s) devised this adjustment to the Pythagorean tuning, in which the rst six fths are lower by the same amount. This is the normal equal tempered scale shifted up 50 cents. Twenty-four equally spaced notes per octave. (Octaves are 24 notes apart.) Forty-eight equally spaced notes per octave. (Octaves are 48 notes apart.) Designed for use Indian music (white keys only). Designed for use Arabic music.

Settings: on, off n The tempo setting data in the Pattern Chain is not affected by this parameter.


Event Chase allows you to specify which non-note data types are properly recognized during fast-forward and rewind operations. Normally, if a Song or Pattern is played back from mid-point and/or fast-forward or rewind are used, certain data types (such as Program Change, Pitch Bend, and Control Change) may not play back as expected. Setting this to a specic event ensures the playback integrity of the event, even when fast forwarding or rewinding.
Settings: Off, PC (Program Change), PC+PB+Ctrl (Program Change+Pitch Bend+Control Change), all (All events) n Keep in mind that settings other than off may result in slower operationfor example, a pause before starting playback, or slower rewind/fast forward speed. n When this is set to all, an excessive amount of MIDI data may be generated, possibly resulting in a MIDI error on the connected device.
DumpInterval (Bulk Dump Interval Time)


Determines whether the Mixing settings are loaded (on) or not (off) when the Song/Pattern number is changed.
Settings: off, on n This setting affects the Song/Pattern change during Song/Pattern chain playback.
Settings: (msec) n The playback may be a little slower depending on the currently set interval. Also when a MIDI error occurs, try to set the interval a little higher and send the data again.
When playing back system exclusive data (bulk data) that is recorded on the sequence tracks, this sets the interval that is inserted for each 1KB. When sending bulk data from this synthesizer to a connected MIDI device, a MIDI error may result if the device cannot handle large amounts of data in a short time. This parameter compensates for that by setting an interval that provides enough time for the receiving device to process the bulk data.


If you use the MO for a variety of sequencer based applications and switch between those applications, the Quick Setup comes in handy. It allows you to instantly recongure the instrument for four different applications. The following parameters are changed in Quick Setup.

Then use Data Entry (page 224) to set the value of the specied parameter. Note that once the NRPN has been set for a channel, subsequent data entry will be recognized as the same NRPNs value change. Therefore, after you use the NRPN, you should set a Null (7FH, 7FH) value to nullify further changes and prevent unexpected results.
All Notes Off (Control #123) RPN (Registered Parameter Number) LSB (Control #100) RPN (Registered Parameter Number) MSB (Control #101)
Messages which offset, or add or subtract values from a Parts pitch bend sensitivity, tuning, or other parameter settings. First send the RPN MSB and RPN LSB to specify the parameter which is to be controlled. Then use Data Increment/Decrement to set the value of the specied parameter. Note that once the RPN has been set for a channel, subsequent data entry will be recognized as the same RPNs value change. Therefore after you use the RPN, you should set a Null (7FH, 7FH) value to avoid unexpected results. The following RPN numbers can be received.
