Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - CASIO EUROPE
Introduction
Basics
Getting Started
Creating A Sound
Detailed Procedure
The wave converter tool is used to convert waves into the Sound Format
(Tone with Wave), which can be loaded by the IDES-Keyboard.
The basic function of Wave Converter is to load audio samples (.wav format,
described hereafter as "waves") and map them across the keyboard in up to
16 different zones. This means that you can have up to 16 different samples
each playing in a different range across the keyboard. These could be
different pitches of the same instrument (for example a piano or guitar
sample) or they could be completely different instruments (for example drum
instruments).
There are some basic functions to alter how the samples work in the final
Tone with Wave Format , and we'll look at these in detail in chapter 3. If you
have a basic knowledge of sampling, Wave Converter will be very easy for
you to use.
It is important to realize that Wave Converter is not a sampler itself. You
must create waves (ie: samples) in a suitable Digital Audio programe, or
load them from an existing library. Wave Converter is a tool for combining
up to 16 waves into a Tone with Wave, in which those waves are mapped
across the keyboard in distinct zones.

Music Data Management Software - Rhythm Converter - CASIO EUROPE
Basic Principles
Making the SMF
The purpose of Rhythm Converter is to create a IDES-Keyboard
Using Rhythm Converter
accompaniment pattern file (CKF), which can be loaded and played on the
Using The Element Editor
keyboard. Rhythm Converter does this by combining a Standard Midi File
(SMF) containing the musical data of the accompaniment pattern, with the
Using The OTP Editor
essential control Parameters (PRA file) that make the pattern work.
1. Create the SMF
2. Open it in Rhythm Converter
3. Create the 'Parameters' in Rhythm Converter
4. Save the final result as a 'CKF' file
(The finished accompaniment pattern file)
Important Notes: The SMF can also contain the Parameters for the
accompaniment pattern, for example Tone selection,
Volume, Reverb, Chorus, Panning etc. Rhythm
Converter can then extract this data from the SMF to
create the Parameters for the final CKF file. More
about this in section
Making the SMF.
When you create your SMF you must follow the
guidelines in Making the SMF or your final pattern
may not work properly
A One Touch Preset can be created and included in
the accompaniment pattern using the OTP Editor
within the Rhythm Converter programe

Music Data Management Software - Parameter Editor - CASIO EUROPE
Foreword
Main Window
Setup Window
Drawbar Organ Window
Synth Window
Effect Window
DSP Window
Parameter Editor provides a graphical interface for remote control of a IDESKeyboard (Keyword) from a computer over a MIDI connection.
It lets you use your computer mouse and keyboard to perform virtually all of
the operations normally performed using the Keyboard controllers and
monitor screen.
Parameter Editor consists of the six windows described below.
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/parametereditor/ (1 of 6) [17.11.2006 11:56:26]
Music Data Management Software - Parameter Editor - CASIO EUROPE
1. Main Window
You can use the Main window to configure Keyboard mixer, tone, and
effecter settings, and to open and close the other windows.
2. Setup Window
This window provides access to some of the functions of the Keyboard's
Transpose/Function Mode. It lets you configure basic Keyboard settings,
and to save parameters to Keyboard memory.
3. Drawbar Organ Window
This window has the same capabilities as the Keyboard's drawbars. You
can use it to configure the drawbar harmonic bar, click, and percussion
settings, to switch the rotary speaker rotation speed, etc.
4. Synthesizer Window
The Synthesizer window lets you configure tone parameters, much as
you do in the Keyboard's Synthesizer Mode. Note, however, that you
cannot configure drawbar or DSP parameters using the Synthesizer
window.
5. Effect Window
The Effect window lets you configure System Chorus, System Reverb,
and Master Equalizer parameters, just as you do on the Keyboard. Note,
however, that you cannot configure DSP settings using the Effect
Window.
6. DSP Window
The DSP window lets you configure DSP parameters, just as you do
when configuring effects on the Keyboard.
For details about each of these windows, see the applicable sections in this
manual.
Parameter Editor operations affect Keyboard memory contents. If you want
to save parameters set with Parameter Editor on your computer, you first
need to save them to the Keyboard's user memory area, and then use Data
Manager to transfer the data to your computer for storage. You can use the
Parameter Editor Setup window instead of Keyboard operations to save
parameters to the Keyboard's user memory area.
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/parametereditor/ (2 of 6) [17.11.2006 11:56:26]
Music Data Management Software - Parameter Editor - CASIO EUROPE
The update operation refreshes Parameter Editor window contents so they
correspond to the Keyboard's current setup. After starting up Parameter
Editor, first click the Main window [Update] button so all current Keyboard
parameters are reflected on the Parameter Editor windows.
After that, any time you use Parameter Editor to select a preset tone or
perform other operations, the corresponding setting is updated
automatically. However, Parameter Editor will change parameters
automatically if you use Keyboard operations to change the tone setting or
other parameters on the keyboard, select a registration setup, or use auto
play, auto accompaniment, etc. In this case, you need to update Parameter
Editor accordingly.
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/parametereditor/ (3 of 6) [17.11.2006 11:56:26]
Music Data Management Software - Parameter Editor - CASIO EUROPE
Parameter Editor remembers where its windows are located when you exit
it, and positions the windows in the same locations the next time you start it
up. If the Main window is outside of a certain range, however, its position is
initialized the next time you start up Parameter Editor.
If, for some reason, you loose track of the windows you have open, select
[Init location] on the [Window] menu to move all open windows to their initial
default locations on the screen.
Controllers are used to change parameters. The following provides
information about different controller operations.
Buttons

The Edit Menu gives you the option to add or delete "Splits". This means
adding more waves to your final CASIO Sound. (Tone with Wave) When you
start Wave Converter it defaults to three splits, which means that you could
have three waves, one in each of the three split zones.
If you are creating a Tone with Wave which is of a complex instrument such
as a guitar or piano, the more waves you use at different pitches, the more
accurate the sound will be. You can use up to 16 Splits (ie: waves) in your
Tone with Wave, so to add more splits just click on "Add Split" in the Edit
Menu. If you want to delete a Split just highlight the split you want to delete
(click on the bar above the words "Wave File" and click so the bar changes
to green) and select "Del Split" in the Edit Menu.
Procedure to delete a Split:
Step 1
Step 2
Keyboard Range
You can select whether your finished Tone with Wave is for a 61 note
keyboard or a 76 note keyboard. As mentioned in the introduction you can
use your finished sound in the IDES-Keyboard. Make your selection
depending on the instrument for which your sound is intended.
Just click on the Keyboard Range menu and make your selection, the
graphic of the keyboard will change when you change Keyboard Range:

Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Basics - CASIO EUROPE
Note: that the original pitch of the waves you use is important when you
consider the total range of the keyboard. If you are creating an
instrument sound with a very wide range such as Piano, it is
important to use waves which cover the whole range of the keyboard
you are working with.
The keyboard graphic shows you the area of the keyboard on which a wave
will play, and the original note (pitch) of the wave. In the above example the
different zones set are shown by the verticle dividing red lines, and the
currently selected zone is highlighted with a horizontal red line just above the
keys. The original pitch of the wave is indicated by the small box just under
the keys, in this case showing D3. (The box indicating the original pitch of
the wave and the range in which the wave is active are highlighted in the
same color as the bar at the top of the wave panel, just to make it easier to
recognize which wave you are dealing with).

Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Basics - CASIO EUROPE
Most of the work of compiling and adapting your waves into a Tone with
Wave is done using the panels immediately under the keyboard graphic.
Each of these represents a "Split", and each "Split" contains a wave. The
parameters in the panel determine how the waves will play in your final Tone
with Wave.
The detailed work that creating your sound is done in the lower section of the
wave converter. Select which wave is being edited by clicking on the colored
bar at the top of each wave panel. For example:
Selecting the first Wave (blue)
Selecting the second Wave (green)

Selecting the third Wave (red)
The color of the highlight bar is different for each wave, and the key range
and original note of the wave are shown in the same color.
Let's look at the functions and parameters in each wave panel:
Highlight Bar (green in this example) tells you
which panel is active for editing. Each panel has a
different color which is matched by the markings
on the keyboard graphic (the key range and
original note markers)
Wave File shows the name of the wave in use for
that split
Click on Open Wav File to load the ".wav" file into
that split (It is possible to load the ".wav" file to

Key Range sets the lower and upper note limits of
the Split. Note that the maximum range is the
same as the maximum Midi note range (128
notes) and as shown here goes from C-1 to G9.
The key range is much wider even than the 76
Key models. The first Split's starting point is fixed
to C-1, But actually the 61 note a keyboard plays
from C2 to C7 and the 76 note from E1 to G7.

Detailed Procedure
programe and saved as a .wav file.
After collecting your waves it is a good practice to name them in a way
which will assist you in converting them to a Tone with Wave. For example
naming them by their sound name and original pitch, as in the following
example:
The basic procedure to combine the waves into the final Tone with Wave is
quite simple:

Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Getting Started Creating A Sound - CASIO EUROPE
1. Create the number of Splits you need for your sound
2. Load the Wave into each Split
3. Set the range of each Split
4. Set the Parameters for each Split
5. Convert to the Tone with Wave
Wave Converter is very flexible so you don't have to do things in this exact
order, but this is the general principle of Wave Converter's operation.

Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
Introduction
Basics
Getting Started
Creating A Sound
The number of Splits you need is determined by how many waves you are
using. In the example in Getting Started Creating A Sound I have shown
Detailed Procedure
five waves, so in this case I would create five Splits.
To create a split just click on the Edit menu and
select Add Split
Note: There is some more detail about adding and deleting splits in
Basics - The Menu Bar / Edit.
In the following example there are five Splits
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/waveconverter/procedure/ (1 of 8) [17.11.2006 11:56:39]
Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
To load the waves into each split, simply click on the "Open Wave File"
button in each wave panel and select the wave as you would in any normal
file opening procedure in a Windows programe. The name of the wave will
appear in the "Wave File" box at the top of each wave panel.
The following is how the wave panels would appear after loading five waves,
in this case for a piano sound:
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/waveconverter/procedure/ (2 of 8) [17.11.2006 11:56:39]
Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
You can see the name of each wave clearly in the "Wave File" box at the
top of each panel.
Note: as mentioned in Getting Started Creating A Sound these waves
have been named with the sound name and the original pitch as a
useful reminder
You can also listen to the waves to check you've loaded the correct ones
simply by clicking on the "Play" button at the top of each panel. If the wave
is long and you want it to stop playing before it reaches the end, just click on
the "Stop" button.
Each Split has a bottom and top note for its range. In the case of the lowest
split (on the far left of the desktop) the lowest note is fixed at C-1, in this
case the lowest Midi note. You can adjust the top note of any Split simply by
clicking on the pull down menu and selecting the note you want:
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/waveconverter/procedure/ (3 of 8) [17.11.2006 11:56:39]
Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
Once you've set the top note for a Split, the bottom note of the next Split to
the right is automatically set one note higher. So in the above example you
can see that B3 has been selected for split number 2, and the lowest note
for Split number 3 has automatically been set to C4.
With this system you only ever need set the highest note for each Split, the
lowest note of the following Split will always follow on.
You can also set the Split points by clicking on and dragging the vertical red
lines that show the Split points on the keyboard graphic:
One of the most important parameters you'll set with Wave Converter is
"Original Note". This is the original note of the wave in each Split. This is
important for two reasons:
http://beta.casio-europe.com/euro/emi/cms/mdms/waveconverter/procedure/ (4 of 8) [17.11.2006 11:56:39]
Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
1. You need to tell Wave Converter which note (ie: pitch) the wave is, so
that the final pitch on the CASIO keyboard is correct.
2. You need to consider using a wave the original pitch of which is in the
same region as the Split you're using it in.
To set the original note, just click on the pull down
menu and make your selection:
You can also set the original note by clicking on and dragging the turquoise
square that shows the location of the original note on the keyboard graphic:
You can modify the way the waves play in your final sound with some
simple functions, which are very easy to set:

Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
Loop
You have the choice of:
One Shot
The wave just plays once.
All
The entire wave plays once and then loops
continuously from start to finish while a key is
held down.
If you are creating a percussive sound such as piano, guitar or a drum
sound then use the One Shot setting. If you are creating a 'Break Beats' or
'Drum Loop' sound, then use the All setting.
To set the type of loop (One Shot or All) simply click on the pull down menu
and make your selection:
You can select from three options to alter how the sound performs while you
hold a note. This in synthesizer terms would be described as Amplifier
Envelope. The three options are:
Sus (sustain)
The wave plays as normal.
Decay short & mid & long
The wave dies away like a percussive sound,
even if it is a sustained type sound like and organ
To set the Amp Envelope simply click on the pull down menu and make your
selection:

Music Data Management Software - Wave Converter - Detailed Procedure - CASIO EUROPE
There are two options of Filter Envelope, which will be very useful
depending on the type of sound you are using. Filter Envelope is a
synthesizer like function that makes the sound get mellower over time as
you hold a note:
Touched
The amount of Filter Envelope changes
depending on velocity. Hitting the key harder will
result in the Filter Envelope closing more slowly,
with the effect that the sound will stay brighter
for longer. Very useful for percussive sounds
such as Piano and Guitar
Fixed
The Filter Envelope is preset and not affected by
velocity.
To set the Filter Envelope simply click on the pull down menu and make
your selection:
After completing the process of

Music Data Management Software - Rhythm Converter - Making the SMF - CASIO EUROPE
Important Notes: These distinct parts of the Accompaniment Pattern are
referred to in Rhythm Converter as 'Elements'
You must set markers to define the different Elements
of the pattern. The markers must be set at the "Split
Points" between the Elements. (The measure number
at the start of each Element). This can be done in one
of two ways as detailed in How To Use Markers
Fill Ins must be one Bar in length and there must be no
empty bars between each Element in your SMF All of
the patterns Elements must be programed in the key of
C. The Intro and Ending can be based on a chord
progression, which should be in the key of C, or written
so that it resolves to the root of C. The Variations and
Fills must be written in the key of C Major.
Drums
Channel 10
Bass
Channel 11
Chord 1
Channel 12
Chord 1
Channel 13
Chord 1
Channel 14
Note: It is not necessary to fill every part, for example you could just use
Drums, Bass and Chord 1 to create a simple pattern. The important
point is that the parts must be on the above Midi Channels or the
pattern will not work properly.
Note On / Off

SMF, Rhythm Converter will extract them and display them in
the 'Element Editor'. See Using the Element Editor.
These are referred to in Rhythm Converter as 'Parameters'.
This is the data stored in the Parameter file (PRA)
There are 2 ways to mark the split points between each of the ten Elements
within the SMF:
1. Insert Markers in the SMF to define the Split Points
2. Set the Split Points within the Rhythm Converter program
1. Setting Markers in your Sequencer Program
Depending on the sequencer Programe you use to create your SMF, insert
a text event (Marker) in the SMF at the start point of each element (one for
each of the ten elements) and a final Marker to show the end point of the
data (ie: the top of the measure after Ending 2).
The positions of these Markers are referred to in Rhythm Converter as "Split
Points", literally marking the points where Rhythm Converter should split the
sequencer tracks into the different accompaniment pattern Elements. As
there are Ten pattern Elements, your SMF should have totally Eleven
Markers, including the end Marker.

in the key of C. The chord conversion table is
used to convert the recorded pattern (in the
key of C major) to other keys. It should be
noted here that a simple direct shift of each
chord results in unnatural sounding chords,
and so the chord table is used to make
corrections required to make chords sound
more natural. There are 16 chord tables
(including the keyboard's accompaniment
pattern table), numbered 1 through 16.

15 intro dorian
o
x
o
o
Play of a minor chord is
transformed to the Dorian
scale. The Dorian scale lowers
the major scale E and B one
semitone.
break
Sets the Break Point for each of the patterns.
Notes lower than the break point will sound an
octave higher in the final pattern.
For example, for Electric Bass, the setting of A is
useful, because in a "root and fifth below" figure
the E below A would be the lowest note for a real
Bass Guitar.
Setting 'A' as the Break point will mean that when
you play an Ab chord the bass will play an octave
higher, avoiding the problem of a bass part playing
at too low a pitch compared to the real instrument.
inversion
The inversion setting is used to decide how the notes within a pattern will
react when an inverted chord is played.
off
The notes in the pattern will be matched to the
position of the notes in the chord. If the chord
played on the keyboard is inverted, the notes of
the pattern will be too.
on
The notes in the pattern are always played in root
position irrespective of whether an inverted chord
is played.
7th
inversion on for chord table 6 only (when a 7th
chord is played). The 7th notes in the pattern will
be kept when a major chord is played and inverted

Music Data Management Software - Rhythm Converter - Using The Element Editor - CASIO EUROPE
for 7th chords only.
retrigger
With retrigger turned on, any notes that are
sounding during a chord change will be replayed
at their new pitch. Without retrigger, notes that are
sounding during a chord change will stop.
This setting 'on' is useful for keeping Pad parts
continuous (Eg: Strings).
The Element Editor includes a special copy function that allows you to copy
Tone and Chord settings from one element to any other element. Just right
click on the Element name from which you want to copy and then select
from the following options:
copy all
copies both the Tone settings and the chord settings to any

Basic Principles
Making the SMF
One Touch Preset sets up the Keyboard with a suitable registration and
Using Rhythm Converter
tempo for the your accompaniment pattern. Using the OTP Editor you can
Using The Element Editor
make any of the settings that you can make on the keyboard itself.
Using The OTP Editor
Obviously having knowledge of the workings of the keyboard will help you in
setting up the OTP registration.
OTP settings are not compulsory; the pattern will function without OTP
settings. To activate One Touch Preset for your pattern check the box in the
top left of the OTP Editor.

DSP type, for example in the following you can see the huge list of DSP
presets for the Guitar FX type:
Note: That if you select DSP Type 200, or "Thru" with the pull down menu,
there will either be no DSP, or if there is a DSP setting preset in the
Tone it will be used.

Tones for right of the keyboard split (UP1 and UP2), the Main and Layer
Tones for left of the keyboard split (LOW1 and LOW2) and the Tone for
Auto Harmonize.

DSP Window
The appearance of the DSP window changes in accordance with the
algorithm associated with a DSP preset. A Keyboard DSP is connected to
up to three effect modules. This window shows a separate panel for each of
these modules and their parameters. Each panel is displayed in a different
color to make it easy to distinguish between them.
Parameters are assigned to dials or buttons, depending on their
characteristics.
