Learning to Play by Playing (For Synthesizer Novices)
This chapter gets you started with basic operations by actually
using the Synthesizer, while avoiding getting too bogged
down in theory and technical details. It is the perfect place to
start for those who are using a synthesizer for the first time.
■ Three Synthesizer Modes
Performance Mode
Use this mode for playing and
performing. It enables high-level
performance with tone categories,
a Step Sequencer, and more.
Tone Mode
Use this mode for tone creation.
You can select a single tone and
edit it the way you want.
Step Sequencer Mode
This mode is for creating step
sequencer data (sets).
So, let’s get started!
Playing with Built-in Tones
Press 6 POWER to turn on power. The Synthesizer initially
enters its Performance Mode.
Here, let’s select a tone hear what it sounds like.

Play something on the keyboard to hear what the tone sounds
like. Use
VOLUME to adjust the volume.
• Note that the Solo Synthesizer tones are monophonic. If
you press multiple keys, only the note of the last key
pressed will sound.
6
Creating Tones
Tone creation is actually what using a synthesizer is all about.
Starting from a preset tone, you can change various
parameters to create a tone that is your own original sound.
7
With this setting, pressing the
EDIT button provides you
with a collection of powerful editing capabilities (page E-20).
In addition, you also can use the
sliders to easily alter
tones without using the
EDIT button. Here we will take a
simplified look at editing a Solo Synthesizer tone. This
process is covered in greater detail later in this manual.
7
Solo Synthesizer actually is a category that contains 100
built-in (preset*) tones. What we played here is just one of
them. Now let’s play some more of the preset tones in this
category.
* There are also “user tones” which are those that you create
and store for later recall. The terms “preset” and “user” are
also used for other types of data, such as Step Sequencer
data, performance data, etc.

Your Synthesizer does much more than create tones. It is also
equipped with a collection of functions that support uniquely
expressive rhythms and phrases that enhance your
performances. This section provides a simple introduction to
some of these functions.

• We recommend that you back up all data stored in
Synthesizer memory to a memory card or a computer hard
disk. To save data to a memory card, see “Using a Memory
Card” (page E-86). To save data to a computer, see
“Connecting to a Computer” (page E-92).
Press any key on the keyboard. The arpeggio function will
cause the note assigned to the key to play in an endless loop.
The loop will stop when you release the keyboard key.
Pressing two or three keyboard keys will loop play the notes
of the keys you press. Pressing three or more keys will cause
an arpeggio (sometimes referred to as a “broken chord”) to be
played.
E-13
Learning to Play by Playing (For Synthesizer Novices)
There are a variety of different built-in arpeggio types. You
can select one the same way as you select a preset tone, edit
it, and then save it as a user arpeggio type. Let’s go over the
procedure for selecting a preset arpeggio type.
• The arpeggios of this Synthesizer are divided into 10 type
groups called “banks”. There are a total of 10 arpeggio
banks numbered 0 through 9, with 10 arpeggios in each
bank for a total of 100 arpeggios.

Pressing another key will play the phrase using a different
pitch. In the Key Play Mode, the keyboard can be used to
sequentially play a phrase at different pitches to create an
interesting effect.
The Phrase Sequencer main chapter covers information
about how you can record your own phrases and play them
back when you want to. For more information see “Recording
a New Phrase” on page E-47.

* About zones and zone parts
Keyboard, pedal, button, and other operations not only affect the Synthesizers preset tones, they are also sent as MIDI data and
affect any external device (electronic musical instrument or computer) connected to the Synthesizer.
The settings that apply to both internal and external parts are collectively referred to as a “zone” while the parts of the
Synthesizer’s built-in sound source that correspond to a zone is called “zone parts”. For example, if you select a tone with
Synthesizer Zone 2, that tone can be the part that corresponds to both the internal sound source Zone Part 2 or MIDI Channel 2
of an external device.
• You can change the relationships between zones and MIDI channels (page E-73).

Description
(1) Synthesizer OSC1 Block
“OSC” is an abbreviation of “oscillator”, which is where a sound is actually produced. These two
synth OSC blocks creates sound using a sine wave, sawtooth wave, or other base waveform,
just like an analog synthesizer.
• Synth OSC: Generates the base sound and determines the pitch.
• Filter: Cuts some of the frequencies to adjust timbre.
• Amp: Adjusts volume.
• Three EG (envelope generators):
Control changes in pitch, timbre, volume, and other parameters over time.
The nearby illustration shows an example of a volume envelope.

This block creates sound based on PCM sounds (same sound quality as sounds in the PCM
Tone category). For information about how the editable parameters of this block differ from
those for the OSC blocks above, see “Editable Parameters of Blocks (1) through (6)” (page
E-23).
(5) External Input Sound Block
Instead of an oscillator, this block creates sound based on sound input through the
Synthesizer’s
MIC IN and INST IN jacks. The pitch change range of sound produced by
this block is limited.
(6) Noise Block
Instead of an oscillator, this block creates sound based on noise generated by a special noise
generator. The pitch of sound produced by this block cannot be edited.
(7) Total Block
This block combines signals (1) through (6) and sends the completed tone to the filters and
DSP (a type of effect).
(8) LFO1 Block
“LFO” is an abbreviation of “low-frequency oscillator”. The LFOs send waveform information to
each block that is used as the basis for modulation, tremolo and other reverb effects.
(9) LFO2 Block
(10) Controllers
E-22
cl
Controllers include the keyboard, bender, and other controllers, as well as MIDI messages.
Control messages are sent to blocks (1) through (9) to control tones.
A virtual controller function can be used to freely configure combinations of controller types
(sources) and the parameters being controlled (destinations) to perform such actions as “pedal
depressed, change volume”.

Synth wave, PCM wave. Selects the base wave for a sound generated by the
synth OSC or PCM OSC.
• A wave whose name is displayed with “L” or “B” next to it will sound at a pitch
that is one octave lower than the actual pitch. In the case of a “B” wave, nothing
will sound when a keyboard key higher than C5 is pressed.
• See the separate “Appendix” for details about wave types.
• This item is not present in Block (5).
• The splits of a user wave tone (User Wave) can be assigned as PCM waves.
User wave names consist of the text “UserWave”, followed by two number
separated by a hyphen (such as: UserWave 1-2). The number to the left of the
hyphen (1 in the example), is a user number from 1 to 10 or the letter R
(sample looper recorded data). The number to the right of the hyphen (2 in the
example), is a split number from 1 to 5. If the data includes a wave, an asterisk
(*) is appended to the beginning of the user wave name.
See the separate
“Appendix”.

(1) Reverb
Adds reverberation to make it sound like you are playing in a room or in a hall.
(2) Chorus
Combines multiple layers of the same note to create a sound with more depth.
(3) Normal DSP
A collection of versatile Normal DSP effects help to enhance the sound of tones. For example,
distortion can be applied to an electric guitar sound to make it sound more powerful. There are 46
different Normal DSP types, and the most appropriate one for the selected tone is applied
automatically.* A DSP can be edited and saved as a user DSP.
(4) Solo Synthesizer DSP
One of the elements that makes up a Solo Synthesizer tones. See “(7) Total Block” in the “Editable
Parameters for Solo Synthesizer Tone” on page E-21. There are six Solo Synthesizer DSP types.
When you edit a Solo Synthesizer DSP, it is saved as part of a Solo Synthesizer user tone. You
cannot save it as a user DSP.
(5) Master Equalizer
Adjusts the frequency characteristics of the Synthesizer’s notes. The Master Equalizer can be used
to adjust the frequency and gain of four frequency bands: low, mid1, mid2, and high.

The Step Sequencer provides up to 16 steps. The Synthesizer’s sliders can be used to control step notes and velocity in real time.
The Step Sequencer is not just a rhythm machine, it makes it possible for you to compose music as you play on the keyboard.
You can edit each step of a preset sequence to create your own rhythm pattern and save the result as a user sequence.
• The Step Sequencer has 100 preset sequences. You also can store up to 100 of your own user sequences.
• There are two ways to edit a step: simple editing without using the editing screen, and the editing screen that provides more
detailed modification of a step.
• Wheel (bender, modulation) and knob operations can also be recorded as part of a sequence.
• Up to 99 different patterns can be chained together with the Step Sequencer and played back as a loop. You can store up to 100
chained sequences.
• Phrase Sequencer playback can be started from the Step Sequencer.
How the Step Sequencer is organized
The following describes the configuration of a single sequence.
• A part (PART) consists of nine note parts (Drum 1 to 5, Bass, Solo 1 and 2, Chord) and four control parts.
• The control parts can be configured with pitch bends/control changes and Phrase Sequencer play triggers (that start and stop
playback).
• For details about the settings and other information about each part, see “Editing a Sequence - Advanced” on page E-56.
• Each sequence has eight different patterns. You can configure separate beat (Beat Info) for each of the eight patterns.
• A track consists of data 16 steps along with their track parameters.
• You can use the Synthesizer’s mixer function to change Step Sequencer tones. For details, see “Using the Mixer” on page E-78.

Using a Memory Card
Card and Card Slot Precautions
• Be sure to observe the precautions provided in the
documentation that comes with the memory card.
• Memory cards have a write-protect switch. Use it when you
want to protect the data on the card from accidental
deletion.
• Avoid using a memory card under the following conditions.
Such conditions can corrupt data stored on the memory
card.
– Areas subjected to high temperature, high humidity, or
corrosive gas.
– Areas subjected to strong electrostatic charge and digital
noise.
• Never touch the contacts of a memory card when loading it
or removing it from the Synthesizer.
• The message “Please Wait” will remain on the display while
a data save operation is in progress. Do not perform any
other operation while it is displayed.
Turning off the Synthesizer or removing the memory card
can cause Synthesizer data to be deleted or become
corrupted. It also can cause the Synthesizer to fail to turn
on when
POWER is pressed. If this happens, refer to
“Troubleshooting” (page E-95).
• If the message “No Card” appears on the display, it means
there is no memory card in the card slot. For details about
what appears on the display while a card is loaded, see
“Playing a Music File from a Memory Card” (page E-91).
• Never insert anything besides a memory card into the card
slot. Doing so creates the risk of malfunction.
• Electrostatic charge from your fingers or the memory card
to the card slot can cause malfunction of the Synthesizer. If
this happens, turn the Synthesizer off and then back on
again.
• A memory card can become quite warm after very long use
in the card slot. This is normal and does not indicate
malfunction.
Loading and Removing a Memory
Card
• A memory card must be positioned correctly when
being loaded into the Synthesizer. Trying to force an
improperly oriented memory card into the slot can
damage the memory card and the slot.
1. With the top of the memory card facing
upwards (so you can see it), carefully insert it
into the Synthesizer’s SD card slot ( ) until
stops with a click.

2. To remove the memory card first press it into
the slot further.
• This will cause the memory card to disengage and eject
partially. Pull the memory card the rest of the way out of
the slot.

Using a Memory Card
Formatting a Memory Card
• Format a memory card before using it for the first time.
• Before formatting a memory card, make sure it does
not have any valuable data stored on it.
• The memory card format operation performed by this
Synthesizer is a “quick format”. If you want to
completely delete all of the data on the memory card,
format it on your computer or some other device.
1. Insert the memory card you want to format into
the Synthesizer’s card slot.
• Make sure the memory card is write-enabled. Check
the position of the card’s write-protect switch to ensure
it is not in the write-protect position.
2. Press 7 SETTING.

DSP Type List
■ Normal DSP Types
• Type numbers 01 through 14 are single type DSPs, while numbers 15 through 46 are dual type DSPs. A single type DSP is one
with a single structure, while a dual type is a combination of two single type DSPs.
• The name of a dual DSP is formed by its two constituent single DSP names, in the order that they are applied. For example, type
15 named “Wah-Compressor” connects in line to “Wah” and “Compressor”, in that sequence.

■ Normal DSP Dual Type DSP Parameters
Dual type DSPs are configured by combining two different
single type DSPs. Use the procedure below to determine what
parameters that can be configured for each dual type DSP,
and the operation, and setting ranges of dual type DSPs.
Example: Type number 29: Distortion-Wah
1. The DSP type name has two parts: a left side part and a
right side part.
Distortion-Wah 3 “Distortion” and “Wah”
2. Find out what parameters you can configure by looking up
the left side part of a dual type DSP in the “Type Name”
column of the table below.
Type Name
Wah
Configurable Parameters
LFO Waveform
LFO Rate
LFO Depth
3. Find the same type names in the table under “Normal DSP
Single Type DSP Parameters” on pages E-100 through
E-102, and note the operation and setting ranges of the
items that are the same as those shown in the
“Configurable Parameters” column of the above table.
• In our “Distortion-Wah” example, the left side part of the
name is “Distortion” so we can see in the above table
that “Gain” and “Level” parameters can be configured.
You can find out about the operations and setting ranges
of “Gain” and “Level” by referring to “03: Distortion” on
page E-100.
4. Next, repeat steps 2 and 3 above for the right side part of
the dual type DSP parameter name.
• The parameter numbers that appear on the parameter
setting screen start from 1, and the number is
incremented for each successive parameter.
The parameter numbers of our “Distortion-Wah” example
would be as shown below.
1: Gain
2: Level
3: LFO Waveform
4: LFO Rate
5: LFO Depth
■ Solo Synthesizer DSP Parameters
