INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your acquisition of a Yamaha SPX900 Professional Multi-effect
Processor. The SPX900 is a highly sophisticated digital reverberation and effects system
which offers 50 preset effect programs including accurate simulations of natural reverberation and early-reflections, delay and echo effects, gated effects, modulation effects,
a versatile compressor, a harmonic exciter, multiple effects which function as several
SPX900 units in one, freeze (sampling) programs and others. With a sampling frequency
of 44.1 kHz, it delivers full, flat frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz for exceptionally
clean, “transparent” effect sound. The preset effect programs can be edited, re-titled, and
stored in any of 49 RAM user memory locations. Individual two-band parametric EQ and
dynamic filter parameters are provided for each effect program for precise tonal tailoring. In addition to the basic effect and EQ parameters, the SPX900 offers a list of “internal
parameters” which provide exacting control over the effect sound. The SPX900 is also
MIDI compatible, with a MIDI IN terminal that allows MIDI selection of effect programs,
and a switchable MIDI THRU/OUT terminal. When switched to OUT, edited programs
stored in internal RAM can be dumped to a MIDI data recorder or other data storage
device. Programs thus stored can be reloaded when necessary via the MIDI IN terminal. As an extra touch of convenience the SPX900’s input and output terminals can be
switched to match -20 dBm or +4 dBm line levels + providing compatibility with a broader
range of sound equipment.
In order to fully take advantage of all the capability offered by the SPX900 Professional
Multi-effect Processor, we urge you to read this operation manual thoroughly – and keep
it in a safe place for later reference.
FCC INFORMATION
While the following statements are provided to comply
with FCC Regulations in the United States, the corrective measures listed below are applicable worldwide.
This series of Yamaha professional music equipment
uses frequencies that appear in the radio frequency
range and if installed in the immediate proximity of
some types of audio or video devices (within three
meters), interference may occur. This series of Yamaha
professional music equipment has been type tested
and found to comply with the specifications set for
a class B computing device in accordance with those
specifications listed in subpart J of part 15 of the FCC
rules. These rules are designed to provide a reasonable
measure of protection against such interference.
However, this does not guarantee that interference
will not occur. If your professional music equipment
should besuspected of causing interference with other
electronic devices, verification can be made by turning
your professional music equipment off and on. If the
interference continues when your equipment is off,
the equipment is not the source of interference. If your
equipment does appear to be the source of the interference, you should try to correct the situation by using
one or more of the following measures:
Relocate either the equipment or the electronic device
that is being affected by the interference. Utilize power
outlets for the professional music equipment and the
device being affected that are on different branch
(circuit breaker or fuse) circuits, or install AC line
filters.
In the case of radio or TV interference, relocate the
antenna or, if the antenna lead-in is 300 ohm ribbon
lead, change the lead-in to a co-axial type cable.
if these corrective measures do not produce satisfactory results, please contact your authorized Yamaha
professional products dealer for suggestions and/or
corrective measures.

PRECAUTIONS
1. AVOID EXCESSIVE HEAT, HUMIDITY, DUST AND
VIBRATION
Keep the unit away from locations where it is likely to
be exposed to high temperatures or humidity – such
as near radiators, stoves, etc. Also avoid locations
which are subject to excessive dust accumulation or
vibration which could cause mechanical damage.
2. AVOID PHYSICAL SHOCKS
Strong physical shocks to the unit can cause damage.
Handle it with care.
3. DO NOT OPEN THE CASE OR ATTEMPT REPAIRS OR
MODIFICATIONS YOURSELF
This product contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer
all maintenance to qualified Yamaha service
personnel. Opening the case and/or tampering with the
internal circuitry will void the warranty.
4. MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF BEFORE MAKING OR
REMOVING CONNECTIONS
Always turn the power OFF prior to connecting or
disconnecting cables. This is important to prevent
damage to the unit itself as well as other connected
equipment.
5. HANDLE CABLES CAREFULLY
Always plug and unplug cables – including the AC
cord – by gripping the connector, not the cord.
2
6. CLEAN WITH A SOFT DRY CLOTH
Never use solvents such as benzine or thinner to clean
the unit. Wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth.
7. ALWAYS USE THE CORRECT POWER SUPPLY
Make sure that the power supply voltage specified on
the rear panel matches your local AC mains supply.
8. ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE
Since the SPX900 contains digital circuitry, it may
cause interference and noise if placed too close to TV
sets, radios or similar equipment. If such a problem
does occur, move the SPX900 further away from the
affected equipment.
9. BACKUP BATTERY
The SPX900 contains a long-life lithium battery which
maintains the contents of the buffer and user memory
locations even when the unit is turned OFF. With
normal use the battery should last for approximately 5
years. If the battery voltage falls below the safe level,
however, the “*** WARNING *** LOW BATTERY”
display will appear on the LCD when the power is first
turned ON. If this occurs, have the battery replaced by
a qualified Yamaha service center. Do not attempt to
replace the battery yourself!

3. When the desired memory location/effect has been
selected. press the RECALL key. The LED memory
number display will stop flashing and the selected effect
will be engaged.
BYPASSING THE EFFECT
There are two ways to switch the selected effect in and out: 1)
with the control panel BYPASS switch and 2) with a
footswitch connected to the connector-panel BYPASS
footswitch jack. An optional Yamaha FC5 Footswitch can be
used for foot-bypass control. In either case – when the
control-panel BYPASS key or BYPASS footswitch is pressed
-the LED in the BYPASS key will light to indicate that the
selected program is currently being bypassed and the input
signal is directly routed to the output terminals (i.e. the effect
is OFF). Press the BYPASS key or footswitch a second time
to turn off the BYPASS Key LED and turn the effect back
ON.
SELECTING AN EFFECT/MEMORY LOCATION
1. Effects and memory locations can only be selected when
the utility mode is not active (the UTILITY KEY indicator
is not lit). If the UTILITY key indicator is lit. press and
hold the UTILITY key until its indicator goes out and the
utility mode is exited.
2. Press the program select or
key to increment or
decrement the memory location number shown on the LED
display. Hold either of these keys down for continuous
incrementing or decrementing. The name of the program
corresponding to the currently selected memory location
will be shown on the LCD. Note that at this stage the LED
memory number display is flashing, indicating that
although a new location has been selected. its contents
have not yet been recalled.
6
ACCESSING & EDITING
THE PROGRAM PARAMETERS
Each SPX900 program has 4 different groups of parameters
which are accessed by pressing the corresponding parameter
select keys:
ACCESSES
The main effect parameters for each program.
These parameters will vary according the type
of program.
The BALANCE and OUT LVL parameters for
LEVEL
each program.
The equalization or dynamic filter parameters
EQ
for each program.
INT PARAM Special “fine control” parameters for each
program. These parameters will vary
according to the type of program.
KEY
PARAM
To call a specific group of parameters for the currently
selected effect program, press the appropriate parameter select
key. The next parameter within the group is called each time
the parameter select key for that group is pressed. In any
parameter group. the SCROLL BACK key can be used to
scroll backwards through the parameters. For example,
subsequent presses on the LEVEL parameter select key call
the following parameters:
BALANCE
OUT LVL
BALANCE
etc.
The complete procedure for calling and editing parameters is:
1. Select and recall the program to be edited.
2. Press the parameter select key corresponding to the group
of parameters to be edited (PARAM, LEVEL, EQ or INT
PARAM) and the first of the selected group’s parameters
will appear on the bottom line of the LCD.
3. Once the desired parameter has been called. its value can
keys. The
key
be edited using the parameter and
increases (increments) the value while the key decreases
(decrements) the value. Either key can be held down for
continuous incrementing or decrementing.
While holding down either the or key, pressing the
other key or
causes the incrementing or
decrementing process to be carried out more rapidly.
In this way you can go through and edit any number of the
parameters to create the required effect. If, however. you
select and recall a new program without first storing your
edited parameters in a memory location between 51 and 99,
any changes you have made will be lost and will have to be
re-programmed. If you want to keep an edited program, use
the STORE operation described below.
STORING EFFECTS
In order to store an edited effect for later recall you need to do
the following:
1. Make sure that the SPX900 MEMORY PROTECT function
is OFF. Press the UTILITY key a few times until the
MEMORY PROTECT function appears. If it is ON, press
the parameter key to turn it OFF. Press and hold the
UTILITY key until its indicator goes out and the utility
mode is exited.
2. After editing the effect, select a memory location between
51 and 99 by using the program select and keys, and
its title will be displayed on the LCD. Do not recall the
selected memory location.
3. Press the STORE key to store the edited effect in the
selected memory location. The title of the effect stored will
appear on the LCD (this may later be edited to create your
own effect title using the UTILITY mode TITLE EDIT
function described on page 27). The LED memory number
display will stop flashing and the stored memory location
will become the active effect.
NOTE:
You CANNOT store edited data to memory locations 1
through 50. If you attempt to do this the LCD will show
“*** READ ONLY ***”.
NOTE:
Once an effect has been stored in a memory location
between 51 and 99, its parameters can be further edited in
the new memory location. Such changes will be lost if a
different effect is selected and recalled, however, unless the
STORE function is used to store the changes. Changes may
be stored to the current memory location number (51 – 99)
simply by pressing the STORE key.
7
EXTERNAL CONTROL ASSIGNMENT
The SPX900 allows two different parameters of a selected
effect to be controlled by optional foot controllers (Yamaha
FC7) connected to the front-panel EXT CTRL/FOOT VOL1
and 2 jacks. The EXT CTRL ASSIGN key is used to assign
the desired effect parameters to the foot controllers used, and
to set the required control range. External control assignments
made for an effect program can be stored in the user memory
area (51 – 99) along with the effect (using the STORE
function described above). so that the assignments made are
recalled whenever that memory location is selected.
1. Select the desired effect program.
2. Select the parameter to be assigned to an external foot
controller (PARAM, LEVEL, EQ or INT PARAM
parameters can be assigned).
5. Press either the parameter or
key and the parameter
you called within the selected effect program will be
assigned to the foot controller indicated on the display
(FVOL1 or FVOL2).
6. Use the “MIN” and “MAX” parameters for the appropriate
controller to set the control range. If the parameter to be
controlled has a range of 0 to 100%, for example, setting
the MIN parameter to 20 and the MAX parameter to 80
will allow the foot controller to vary the selected parameter
from 20% to 80% of its total range.
NOTE:
Either or both controllers may be assigned. When both
controllers are used, each can be assigned a different
parameter within the selected effect program.
3. Press the EXT CTRL ASSIGN key. The name of the
selected effect program will remain on the upper line of the
LCD. and one of the following parameters will appear on
the lower line:
NOTE:
External control assignments will be lost if a different
memory location is selected without first storing the
assigned effect program into one of the user memory
locations (51 – 99) using the STORE function.
NOTE:
MIDI control change messages received via the MIDI IN
connector can also be used to control assigned parameters.
See “MIDI CTRL ASSIGN” on page 29.
In the actual display, “XXXXXXXX” will be the name of
the default parameter for the selected effect program. The
EXT CTRL ASSIGN key can be used to scroll forward
through the above parameters. and the SCROLL BACK
key can be used to scroll backwards.
4. To assign the selected parameter to the EXT CTRL/FOOT
VOL1 or EXT CTRL/FOOT VOL2 controller. use the EXT
CTRL ASSIGN or SCROLL BACK key to call the
“FVOL1 XXXXXXXX” or “FVOL2 XXXXXXXX”
parameter.
8
CAUTION!
When setting the range and storing it in the program.
always make sure the preset values for the assigned
parameters are included within the set range.
When setting the range, confirm the values for MIN and
MAX with the controller, and always make sure the preset
values are inside the externally set values.
If the preset values are outside the specified range, there
may be no response to the controller when a recall operation
is carried out.
3: THE PROGRAMS & PARAMETERS
PARAMETERS PROVIDED
FOR ALL PROGRAMS
LEVEL PARAMETERS (Accessed via LEVEL key)
Effect/Direct Signal Balance (BALANCE): 0 – 100%
This parameter adjusts the balance between the direct sound
and effect signals. At 100% only the effect sound is delivered
from the SPX900 outputs, while at 0% only the direct sound is
output. At a setting of 50%. the direct and effect sounds are
output in approximately equal proportions.
Low EQ Frequency (LOW FRQ): 32 Hz – 2.2 kHz
High EQ Frequency (HIGH FRQ): 500 Hz – 16 kHz
These parameters determine the center frequency for
equalization in the corresponding band. In the shelving mode,
these parameters represent the turn over frequency rather than
the center frequencies.
Low EQ Gain (LOW GAIN): -15 – +15 dB
High EQ Gain (HIGH GAIN): -15 – +15 dB
These parameters determine the amount of boost or cut
applied to the corresponding EQ band.
Effect Output Level (OUT LVL): 0 – 200%
This parameter sets the overall output level of the effect
program. This is particularly handy for matching levels
between different effects.
DUAL EFFECT PROGRAM (PROGRAMS 48 – 50)
LEVEL PARAMETERS
The level parameters available for the dual effect programs
(programs 48 – 50) are the same as those for the other

EQ PARAMETERS (Accessed via EQ key)
When the EQ key is pressed, you are presented with three
choices: “OFF” (the default setting), “EQ” (2-band parametric
equalizer mode), or “D.FLT” (Dynamic Filter mode). Use the
parameter and
keys to select the desired mode of
operation. The EQ mode provides 2-band parametric
equalization, while the Dynamic Filter mode provides a filter
which can be automatically swept across a specified frequency
range by the SPX900’s internal low frequency oscillator or the
level of the input signal.
Low EQ Bandwidth (LOW Q): 0.1 – 5.0 (PEAK mode
only)
High EQ Bandwidth (HI Q): 0.1 – 5.0 (PEAK mode
only)
These parameters determine the bandwidth of the
corresponding EQ band. A setting of 5.0 produces the
narrowest bandwidth (sharpest response), and the minimum
setting of 0.1 produces the widest bandwidth (broadest
response). Note that the “Q” parameters for the low and high
bands only function when the corresponding band is set to the
PEAK mode.
PARAMETERS AVAILABLE IN THE “EQ”
MODE
Low EQ Peaking or Shelving Response (LOW EQ):
PEAK, SHLV
High EQ Peaking or Shelving Response (HIGH EQ):

to the starting frequency after activation.
Low Frequency Oscillator Frequency (LF0 FRQ):

Reverberation is the warm musical “ambience” you
experience when listening to music in a hall or other properlydesigned acoustic environment. The SPX900 offers several
different reverb effects, simulating types of reverberation you
would experience in halls, in smaller rooms, reverb effects
ideally suited to vocals, the type of reverberation produced
artificially by a plate reverberator.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY
Reverb Time (REV TIME):
0.3 – 480 seconds (1. REV1 HALL, 2. REV2

The length of time it takes for the level of reverberation at
1 kHz to decrease by 60 dB – virtually to silence. In a live
setting, this depends on several factors: room size, room
shape, type of reflective surfaces, and others.
High Frequency Reverb Time Ratio (HIGH): 0.1 – 1.0
Natural reverberation varies according to the frequency of the
sound. The higher the frequency, the more sound tends to be
absorbed by walls, furnishings and even air. These two
parameters allow alteration of the high-frequency and lowfrequency reverb times in relation to the overall reverb time.
Diffusion (DIFFUSION): 0 – 10
The complexity of the many reflections that make up
reverberation varies according to the shape of the room and its
contents. In the SPX900 the term “diffusion” refers to the
complexity of these reflections. If the DIFFUSION parameter
is set to “0,” minimum complexity and therefore a clearer,
more straightforward reverb effect is produced. As the
DIFFUSION value is increased, the complexity of the
reflections increases producing a thicker, richer sound.
Initial Delay (INI DLY): 0.1 – 200.0 milliseconds
This represents the time delay between the direct sound of an
instrument in a concert hall and the first of the many
reflections that make up reverberation.
High-pass Filter Frequency (HPF FRQ.): THRU,
32 Hz – 1.0 kHz
Permits rolling off the low-frequency content of the reverb
signal above the set frequency. The HPF is OFF when set to
THRU.
Low-pass Filter Frequency (LPF FRQ.): 1.0 – 16 kHz,
THRU

signal above the set frequency. The LPF is OFF when set to
THRU.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM
KEY
Early Reflection/Reverb Balance (ER/REV BAL.):
0
– 100%
This parameter determines the level balance between the
early-reflection portion and final reverberation portion of the
reverb sound. At 100% only the early-reflection sound will be
produced. At 0% only the final reverberation sound will be
produced. A setting of about 50% produces both the earlyreflection and final reverberation sounds at equal level.
Reverb Delay (REV DLY): 0.1 – 100.0 milliseconds
Sets the delay between the beginning of the early reflections
— the initial group of sparse reflections that precede the dense
reverb sound — and the beginning of the reverb sound.
Density (DENSITY): 0 – 4
This parameter determines the density of the reverb
reflections (i.e. the average amount of time between
reflections). A setting of 1 produces minimum reverb density
for a more spacious sound, while a setting of 4 produces the
most dense, “tightest” reverberation.
Trigger Level (TRG. LEVEL): 0 – 100
Determines the level of the input signal required to trigger
“opening” of the reverb program gate. At 100% only very
high-level input signals will trigger the gate, while at 1% even
the tiniest input signal will trigger the gate.
Trigger Delay (TRG. DLY): -100 – +100.0
milliseconds
Produces a delay between the time at which the gate is
triggered and that at which it actually opens.
Hold Time (HOLD): 1 – 24,000 milliseconds
Determines how long the gate stays open. allowing the signal
to pass.
Release Time (RELEASE): 3 – 24,000 milliseconds
Determines how long it takes for the gate to close fully after
the HOLD TIME has ended.
11
Wall Variance (WALL VARY): 0 – 30
Irregularity factor refers to the relationship of the wall
surfaces in the echo room. At a setting of 1 all walls are
parallel. Higher settings increase the angles between the wall
surfaces. causing a distinct change in the reverb sound.
MIDI Trigger (MIDI TRG.): OFF, ON
When this parameter is turned ON, a KEY ON EVENT
message from an external MIDI keyboard can be used to
trigger the gate. A KEY ON EVENT message is transmitted
whenever a note on a MIDI keyboard is played.
NOTE:
This effect can also be triggered by the front-panel
TRIGGER key or a footswitch plugged into the rear-panel
TRIGGER jack.

Listening Position (LIS. POSI.): FRONT, CENT., REAR
Allows position the “listener” to the front, center or rear of the
echo room in relation to the source sound.
High Frequency Reverb Time Ratio (HIGH): x0.1 –
x1.0
Natural reverberation varies according to the frequency of the
sound. The higher the frequency. the more sound tends to be
absorbed by walls, furnishings and even air. These two
parameters allow alteration of the high-frequency and lowfrequency reverb times in relation to the overall reverb time.
Diffusion (DIFFUSION): 0 – 10
The complexity of the many reflections that make up
reverberation varies according to the shape of the room and its
contents. In the SPX900 the term “diffusion” refers to the
complexity of these reflections. If the DIFFUSION parameter
is set to “0.” minimum complexity and therefore a clearer,

Wall Vary Fine (W. VARY FINE): -100 – +100
This sets each of the value specified with WIDTH, HEIGHT,
DEPTH, and WALL VARY as the reference value (0) and is
the parameter for further fine adjustment.
W. Decay: RT x 0.1 – 10.0
Among the REV components, this sets the reverberation time
of the REV components specified with WIDTH to a multiplier
value corresponding to the REV TIME. It simulates the
acoustic properties of the side walls.
H. Decay: RT x 0.1 – 10.0
D. Decay: RT x 0.1 10.0
In the same way as for W. Decay, this sets a multiplier value
corresponding to REV TIME for reverberation time felt in
relation to the HEIGHT (vertical direction) in the height
direction and that felt for the DEPTH in the front-to-back
direction. It also simulates the acoustic properties of the walls
in the vertical and front-to-back directions.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM
These are same as REVERB Programs.
EARLY REFLECTION PROGRAMS
In the PERCUSSION ER program the TYPE parameter selects
one of six different patterns of early reflections. S-HALL
produces a typical grouping of early reflections that would
occur in a performing environment such as a small hall.
L-HALL simulates the early reflection pattern of a larger hall.
RANDOM produces an irregular series of reflections that
could not occur naturally. REVERSE generates a series of
reflections that increase in level – like the effect produced by
playing a recorded reverberation sound backwards. PLATE
produces a typical grouping of reflections that would occur in
a plate reverb unit. and SPRING produces the same for spring
type reverb unit.
In the PROGRAMMABLE ER program the TYPE parameter
selects one of the four user-programmed early reflection
patterns: USER-A, USER-B. USER-C or USER-D. The USER
early reflection patterns are programmed using the utilitymode “USER ER EDIT” function (see “USER ER EDIT” on
page 27 for details).
In the GATE REVERB and REVERSE GATE programs the
TYPE parameter selects either TYPE-A or TYPE-B.
Room Size (ROOM SIZE): 0.1 – 25.0
This parameter sets the time intervals between the early
reflections – a feature of natural early reflections which is
directly proportional to the size of the room.
Liveness (LIVENESS): 0 – 10
“Liveness” refers to the rate at which the reflected sounds
fade. An acoustically “dead” room is simulated by setting this
parameter to zero. Increasing the value of this parameter
creates an increasingly “live” sound, simulating an increasing
area of reflective surfaces in the room.

contents. In the SPX900 the term “diffusion” refers to the
complexity of these reflections. If the DIFFUSION parameter
is set to “0.” minimum complexity and therefore a clearer,
more straightforward early reflection effect is produced. As
the DIFFUSION value is increased, the complexity of the

PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM
KEY
Number of Early Reflections (ER NUMBER): 1 – 19
This parameter directly sets the number of early reflections
produced from 1 to 19.
Feedback Delay (FB DELAY): 0.1 – 900.0
milliseconds
Feedback Gain (FB GAIN): -99 – +99%
Feedback High-frequency Ratio (FB HIGH): x 0.1–
x 1.0
The feedback parameters permit thickening and/or extending
the early reflection sound. Feedback causes the early
reflections to generate more early reflections of themselves.
thus the FB GAIN parameter determines how many times (for
how long) the early reflections are repeated. The FB DELAY
parameter sets a delay time between the beginning of the
original early-reflections and the first of the repeats caused by
feedback. Shorter FB DELAY times simply thicken the earlyreflection sound, while longer FB DELAY times can create
extended or repeated early reflection effects. FB HIGH
determines how much of the high-frequency content of the
original early reflections is fed back. The lower the setting,
the less of the original high frequencies are fed back. This
causes a gradual decrease in high frequency content at each
repeat.
Density (DENSITY):
PERCUSSION ER: 1 – 3
PROGRAMMABLE ER. GATE REVERB. REVERSE
GAGE: 0 – 3
This parameter determines the density of the reverb

in a number of ways. It can be used to pass just a short
segment of a longer input signal. or it can be set up to pass
only signals that exceed a specified level. In the latter case
this program functions as a “noise gate.” It is also possible to

PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM
KEY
Base Key (BASE KEY): OFF, C1 – C6
This parameter sets the “BASE KEY” for an external MIDI
synthesizer used to control the PITCH parameter (the MIDI
OUT terminal of the synthesizer must be connected to the
SPX900 MIDI IN terminal, and the SPX900 must be set to
receive on the MIDI channel on which the synthesizer is
transmitting). If, for example, the BASE KEY parameter is set
to C4, pressing the C3 key on the synthesizer (C3 is one
octave lower than C4) will set the pitch change value to -12.
Pressing D4 on the keyboard would produce a pitch increase
of one whole-tone (+2). When two keys are pressed, the
highest note determines the pitch of the 1 PITCH or L PITCH
sound, and the lower note determines the pitch of the 2 PITCH
or R PITCH sound. With the STEREO PITCH program the
last note pressed takes priority. If a key more than two octaves
higher or lower than the BASE KEY is pressed, the resultant
pitch change setting will still be within the -24 to +24 range,
as shown in the illustration below. If the BASE KEY
parameter is set OFF, pitch cannot be controlled via the MIDI
IN terminal.
FREEZE PROGRAM
n 32. FREEZE
Record Ready (RECORD):
The RECORD display must be called before sampling can
begin. With the RECORD display showing, press the
parameter key and display will change to RECORD
READY. Sampling can now be starting using either the
MANUAL or AUTO method described above. The display
changes to “- - - - - -” while sampling is in progress, and then
to “OK” when sampling is complete. Any previous data in the
freeze memory is erased when the RECORD function is
executed.
The sampled sound can now be played back by pressing the
TRIGGER key or a footswitch connected to the rear-panel
TRIGGER jack. Pitched playback of the sampled sound is
possible by transmitting MIDI note ON messages to the
SPX900’s MIDI IN connector from a MIDI keyboard or other
device (e.g. play a key on the keyboard).
The FREEZE program allows sampling (digital recording) and
playback of sounds received at the SPX900’s inputs. The
FREEZE program allows sampling for a maximum of 1.35
seconds.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY
Record Mode (REC. MODE): MANUAL, AUTO
Determines how sampling is to be triggered. If MANUAL is
selected, sampling is initiated either by pressing the parameter
key, the TRIGGER key, or a footswitch connected to the
rear-panel TRIGGER jack. If AUTO is selected, sampling is
automatically triggered by any input signal of sufficient level.
Trigger Delay (TRG. DLY): -1350 – +1000
milliseconds
This parameter sets a delay between triggering and actual
initiation of the sampling process. If a negative value is
specified, input signals are temporarily stored and the sound is
sampled from the specified time before the trigger occurs.
Overdub Ready (OVERDUB):
RECORD (see above) is used to sample a new sound.
OVERDUB is used to record a new sound over a previously
recorded sound. Call the OVERDUB display and begin
overdubbing by using either the MANUAL or AUTO method
described above. The display changes to “
” while
overdubbing is in progress, and then to “OK” when
overdubbing is complete. OVERDUB can be repeated as many
times as necessary.
The initially recorded and overdubbed sound can now be
played back by pressing the TRIGGER key or a footswitch
connected to the rear-panel TRIGGER jack. Playback can also
be triggered by an input signal of sufficient amplitude if the
INPUT TRG parameter is on. Pitched playback of the sampled
sound is possible by transmitting MIDI note ON messages to
the SPX900’s MIDI IN connector from a MIDI keyboard’or
other device (e.g. play a key on the keyboard).
Playback Start Point (START): 0 – 1350.0
milliseconds
Total sample time is 1350 milliseconds (1.35 seconds). This
parameter determines at what point playback will begin when
a trigger occurs.
19
Playback End Point (END): 0 – 1350.0 milliseconds
This parameter determines at what point playback will end. If
the END point is set to a time earlier than the START point
(above), the sampled sound will be played back in reverse.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM
KEY
Base Key (BASE KEY): OFF, C1 – C6
Playback Pitch (PITCH): -24 – +24
Determines the pitch of the playback sound in semitone
increments. PITCH can be varied from two octaves below
(-24) to two octaves above (+24) the original pitch of the
sampled sound.
Playback Pitch Fine Tuning (PITCH FINE):
-100 – +100
Permits fine tuning of the playback pitch in one-cent
increments (a cent is 1/100th of a semitone).
This parameter sets the “BASE KEY” for an external MIDI
synthesizer used to control pitched playback of the sampled
sound (the MIDI OUT terminal of the synthesizer must be
connected to the SPX900 MIDI IN terminal, and the SPX900
must be set to receive on the MIDI channel on which the
synthesizer is transmitting). If, for example. the BASE KEY
parameter is set to C4, pressing the C3 key on the synthesizer
(C3 is one octave lower than C4) will cause the sampled
sound to play one octave lower than its normal pitch. If a key
more than two octaves higher or lower than the BASE KEY is
pressed, the resultant pitch change setting will still be within
the -24 to +24 range, as shown in the illustration below. If the
BASE KEY parameter is set OFF, pitch cannot be controlled
via the MIDI IN terminal.
PAN PROGRAMS
Playback Loop Point (LOOP): 0 – 1350.0
milliseconds
This parameter sets the “Loop” point of the sampled sound.
Playback is immediately resumed from the LOOP point as
soon as the END point is reached. The sampled sound will
therefore play continuously as long as the trigger is held ON.
Loop Fine Adjust (LOOP FINE): -200 – +200
This parameter allows fine adjustment of the LOOP point,
making it possible to create the smoothest transition between
the END and LOOP points.
20
n 33. PAN
n 34. TRIGGERED PAN
There are two Pan Programs:
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY
n 33. PAN
This is a very sophisticated pan program that allows creation
of “rotary” pan in addition to straightforward pan effects.
Pan Type (TYPE): L
R-TURN
R, L
R, L
R, L-TURN,
Determines the direction in which the sound sweeps across the
stereo sound field. The L-TURN and R-TURN parameters
produce a pan which seems to rotate toward and away from
the listener in the specified direction.
Attack Time (ATTACK): 3 – 24000 milliseconds
Determines how rapidly the panning effect begins.
Panning Time (PANNING): 3 – 24000 milliseconds
Determines how long it takes to complete the main portion of
the pan.
Pan Speed (PAN SPEED): 0.05 – 40.00 Hz
Release Time (RELEASE): 3 – 24000 milliseconds
Sets the speed of the PAN effect (i.e. how rapidly the signal
sweeps from channel to channel).
Determines the speed of the end of the pan.
Front/Rear Depth (F/R DEPTH): 0 – 100%
Determines the direction in which the sound sweeps across the
stereo sound field.
Pan Direction (DIRECTION): L
When the L-TURN or R-TURN pan type is selected, this
parameter sets the apparent depth of the sweep from front to
rear.
Left/Right Depth (L/R DEPTH): 0 – 100%
Sets the “depth” of the pan sweep from left to right and right
to left.
R, L
R
Left/Right Channel Balance (L/R BALANCE):
0 – 100%
Determines the maximum extent of the pan sweep. For
example, a setting of 100% produce a full pan from the
extreme left to right or vice versa, while a setting of 50% a
pan that is more restricted in its width across the stereo sound
field.
MIDI Trigger (MIDI TRG.): OFF, ON
When this parameter is turned ON, a KEY ON EVENT
message from an external MIDI keyboard can be used to
trigger the pan. A KEY ON EVENT message is transmitted
whenever a note on a MIDI keyboard is played.
NOTE:
This effect can also be triggered by the front-panel
TRIGGER key or a footswitch plugged into the rear-panel
TRIGGER jack.
n 34. TRIGGERED PAN
When triggered, this program automatically pans the sound
image between left and right or right and left in the stereo
sound field – with programmable attack, pan and release
rates.
Trigger Level (TRG. LEVEL): 1 – 100
Determines the level of the input signal required to trigger the
panning effect. At 100% only very high-level input signals
will trigger the pan, while at 0% even the tiniest input signal
will trigger the pan.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT PARAM
KEY
HPF FRQ, LPF FRQ
COMPRESSOR PROGRAM
Trigger Delay (TRG. DLY): -100 – +100.0
milliseconds
Produces a delay between the time at which the effect is
triggered and that at which it actually begins. If a minus value
is programmed. the input signal is delayed so that, effectively,
the effect begins before the signal appears.
Trigger Mask (TRG. MSK): 3 – 24000 milliseconds
This parameter makes it impossible to re-trigger the effect
until the programmed time has elapsed.
n 35. COMPRESSOR
This extremely versatile compressor program allows creation
of a wide range of compression and limiting effects. It can
simply be used to reduce the dynamic range of a signal, to
smooth out the sound of an electric bass or add sustain to an
electric guitar. It can help to reduce volume fluctuations as
a vocalist moves closer to or away from a microphone, or
limit the maximum level of a signal to prevent overloading
certain types of amplification of recording equipment. The
COMPRESSOR program is a stereo compressor in which the
21
higher signal level + left- or right-channel + is used for gain
control.
Initial Delay Time (DELAY): 0.1 – 1400.0
milliseconds
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY
Determines the time delay between the direct sound and the
compressed effect sound.
Attack Time (ATTACK): 1 – 40 milliseconds
Determines how long it takes for full compression to be
reached after the effect is triggered (i.e. the THRESHOLD
level is exceeded). The right ATTACK setting is essential to
preserve the natural initial attack sound of the instrument used
– or modify it as desired.
Detect Delay (DET. DLY): -50 – +50 milliseconds
This parameter sets an initial delay between the time the input
signal begins (the time the THRESHOLD level is exceeded)
and the time the compression effect begins. This delay can be
used to allow the initial attack of an instrument to come
through completely unaffected while the rest of the signal is
compressed. A minus DET DLY setting causes the
compressed sound to appear before the direct instrument
sound.
Release Time (RELEASE): 10 – 2,000 milliseconds
Determines how long it takes for compression to be relased
after the input signal drops below the THRESHOLD level.
The RELEASE setting is important to preserve the natural
release sound of the instrument used. Too short a RELEASE
setting will cause the sound to be cut off unnaturally.
Threshold Level (THRESHOLD): -48 – -6 dB
Determines the level of the input signal at which the
compression effect begins. Set at a low level (-48 dB) all
input signals will be compressed. At a higher level, only those
signals exceeding the THRESHOLD level will be compressed,
thus producing a limiting effect. The THRESHOLD level
must be set to match the level and characteristics of the
instrument being used. as well as the desired effect.
Compression Ratio (RATIO): 1.0 – 20.0
This parameter sets the “amount” of compression applied to
the input signal. A setting of 1.0 produces no compression.
while a setting of 20 produces maximum compression.
Expansion Threshold (EXPAND THRS): -72 – -30 dB
Expansion Ratio (RATIO): 1.0 – 5.0
These parameters can be used to cut out low-level noise.
Expansion is applied to signal levels below the set expander
threshold.
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE INT
PARAMETER KEY
Detector High Pass Filter Frequency (DET. HPF):
THRU, 500 Hz – 8 kHz
Allows compression to be applied to a specific range of
frequencies. Compression is only applied to frequencies
higher than the set DET. HPF frequency. Compression is
applied to all frequencies when this parameter is set to THRU.
DISTORTION PROGRAM
n 36. DISTORTION
The distortion program is capable of producing an extremely
broad range of distortion sounds.
22
PARAMETERS ACCESSED BY THE PARAM KEY
ENHANCE: 0 – 100%
Distortion (DISTORTION): 0 – 100%
Sets the level of the harmonics added to the input sound. The
higher the value, the greater the exciter effect.
This parameter sets the “degree” of distortion produced. A
setting of 0 produces a perfectly clean sound, while a setting
of 100 produces the most heavily distorted sound.
Midrange EQ Frequency (MID FRQ): 250 Hz – 5.6
kHz
Sets the mid-frequency range to be boosted or cut using the
next parameter: MID GAIN.
Exciter/Direct Sound Mix (MIX LVL): 0 – 100%
Sets the mixture or balance between the direct input sound and
the applied harmonics.
DELAY: 0.1 – 740.0 ms
MULTI-EFFECT PROGRAMS
Midrange EQ Gain (MID GAIN): -12 – +12 dB
Boosts or cuts response in the frequency range set by the MID
FRQ parameter (above). A setting of 0 produces no boost or
cut. Minus settings (e.g: -6 dB) cut response in the selected
frequency range, while plus settings (e.g: +12 dB) boost
response.
Treble Boost/Cut (TREBLE): -12 – + 12 dB
Permits boosting or cutting the high-frequency range. Minus
settings (e.g: -6 dB) reduce the high-frequency content of the
sound, while plus settings (e.g: +6 dB) emphasize the highfrequencies.
Distortion Delay (DELAY): 0.1 – 1480.0 milliseconds
Sets the delay between the direct sound and the beginning of
the distortion effect.

The SPX900 multi-effect programs combine compressor,
distortion, equalizer or dynamic filter (access via EQ key),
reverb and chorus or exciter effects. Refer to the effect
configuration diagram for each program to understand how the
various effects are “connected.”
In all cases the first parameter display allows turning each
effect ON or OFF. Use the PARAM and SCROLL BACK keys
to move the underline cursor to the desired effect, then use the
parameter or key to turn the effect ON of OFF:
The level of the input signal which allows the gate to open (or
applies a trigger, in other words) can be set. The larger the
value, the larger the input signal needed to open the gate. If
this is not specified, the gate will not open.
Release Time (RELEASE) : 3 ms – 24000 ms
Tis is the time between the point where the gate begins to
close and the point where it is fully closed. The larger the
value, the smoother the cut-off of the reverberation sound
becomes.

The PARAM and SCROLL BACK keys are used to move the
cursor back and forth, while the parameter 0 and 9 keys are
used to select a new character for the current cursor position.
Simply move the cursor to each character position in turn,
selecting the appropriate characters at each position. The
available characters are as follows:
First space
DIGITAL IN ATT.
This function makes it possible to vary the input level at the
digital circuit from 0dB to -60dB. Adjusting the level through
this DIGITAL IN ATT. rather than through analog input
volume will improve the S/N ratio.
USER ER EDIT
This function makes it possible to create up to four original
ER (Early Reflection) patterns – A, B, C and D – that can
be selected and used by the PROGRAMMABLE ER effect
program. Each pattern is comprised of up to 19 separate
reflections. The delay, level a stereo position (pan) of each
reflection can be individually programmed.
1. Use the UTILITY key to call the USER ER EDIT function.
2. Use the parameter a and 0 keys to select the pattern you
wish to edit: A, B, C or D.
3. Press the PARAM key to call the “# 1 DLY=” parameter,
and use the parameter 0 and v keys to program the delay
time for the first early reflection.
4. Press the PARAM key to call the “# 1 LVL=” parameter,
and use the parameter 6 and v keys to program the level
for the first early reflection.
5. Press the PARAM key to call the “# 1 PAN=” parameter,
and use the parameter 0 and v keys to program the pan
(stereo) position from -45 degrees (fully left) to +45
degrees (fully right) for the first early reflection.
6. Press the PARAM key to move on to the DLY, LVL and
PAN parameters for the second and subsequent reflections
(up to 19) and program each as above. The SCROLL
BACK key can be used at any time to scroll backwards
through the USER ER EDIT parameters.
NOTE:
If you attempt to use the TITLE EDIT function while a
ROM memory location (1–50) is selected the “RAM
(51 – 99) ONLY” display will appear on the top line of the
LCD and title editing will not be possible.

MEMORY PROTECT
The MEMORY PROTECT function must be OFF prior to
performing a STORE operation. If you attempt to execute a
STORE while MEMORY PROTECT is ON. the
“PROTECTED” display will appear and the STORE operation
will be aborted.
1. Press the UTILITY key a few times until the MEMORY
PROTECT function appears.
2. MEMORY PROTECT can be turned ON by pressing the
parameter 0 key and off by pressing the parameter v key.
Bank Selection and MIDI Channel Programming
1. Press the UTILITY key until the MIDI CONTROL
function appears.
2. The underline cursor should be under the BANK
parameter. Use the parameter a and v keys to select the
bank you wish to program.
3. Move the cursor to the “ch=” parameter by pressing the
PARAM key. then use the parameter 4 and v keys to set
the receive MIDI channel (1 + 16), the OMNI mode (all
channels can be received), or turn MIDI reception OFF for
the selected bank. The underline cursor can be moved back
to the BANK parameter if necessary by pressing the
SCROLL BACK key.
Assigning Effects to MIDI Program Change Numbers
MIDI CONTROL & MIDI PGM CHANGE
The SPX900 makes it possible to select specific programs via
external MIDI control. You can set up the SPX900, for
example, so that when you select a voice on a synthesizer the
most appropriate effect for that voice is automatically
selected. This is accomplished because each time you select a
voice on your MIDI synthesizer it transmits the corresponding
MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE NUMBER. The SPX900
receives this PROGRAM CHANGE NUMBER and selects the
effect program that you have assigned to it using the MIDI
PROG CHANGE function which will be described below. The
SPX900 also accepts MIDI KEY ON EVENT messages to
trigger some of the gate effects, and MIDI KEY ON
NUMBERS to set the PITCH parameter of the PITCH
CHANGE effects. The SPX900 actually can be programmed
with four completely independent sets of MIDI PROGRAM
CHANGE NUMBER/MEMORY NUMBER assignments.
Each of these is contained in a different “bank”: A. B, C or D.
Each BANK may also be programmed to receive on a
different MIDI channel. An example of the way the four banks
may be programmed with different receive channels and
program number/memory number assignments is given below:
28
1. Select the MIDI PGM CHANGE function using the
UTILITY key or program select and 7 keys. The
underline cursor should be under the PGM parameter.
2. Use the parameter and 0 keys to select the program
change number to which a new SPX900 memory location
number is to be assigned. The range of available program
change numbers is from 1 to 128.
3. Move the underline cursor to the MEM parameter by
pressing the PARAM key. Use the parameter a and v keys
to select the memory location number containing the effect
which is to be assigned to the currently selected program
change number.
4. Move the underline cursor back to the PGM parameter and
repeat the above steps to assign as many program change
numbers as necessary.
NOTE:
The program number/memory number assignments made
are stored in the BANK selected in the previous MIDI
CONTROL function. To program the program change/
memory number assignments for a different BANK, return
to the MIDI CONTROL function, select the desired BANK,
then program the required assignments.

MIDI CTRL ASSIGN
This function makes it possible to use MIDI control change
message to control the parameters assigned to the EXT CTRL/
FOOT VOL 1 and 2 controllers (see “EXTERNAL
CONTROL ASSIGNMENT” on page 8).
1. Use the UTILITY key to call the MIDI CTRL ASSIGN
function.
2. The underline cursor should be under the ASS (Assign)
parameter. Use the parameter 4 and v keys to select either
ASS1 for control of the parameter assigned to FVOL1, or
ASS2 for control of the parameter assigned to FVOL2.
3. Press the PARAM C key to move the cursor to the
rightmost parameter and select the MIDI control change
message you will use to control the assigned parameter.

synthesizer connected to the SPX900 MIDI IN connector
(assuming that the MIDI channels are properly matched). The
cursor can be moved back to the ASS parameter if necessary
by pressing the SCROLL BACK key.
BULK OUT 1 & BULK OUT 2
This function permits dumping program data and/or BANK
MIDI assignments via the MIDI OUT terminal (The MIDI
THRU/OUT terminal must be switched to MIDI). This permits
transferring data to a second SPX900, or storing the data on a
MIDI data recorder. The SPX900 automatically reloads data
received from a MIDI data recorder into the appropriate
memory locations.*
The BULK OUT 1 function permits dumping all SPX900
memory data (ALL), independent memory locations (MEM),
and independent program change assignment banks (BANK).
The BULK OUT 2 function permits dumping user early
reflection patterns (USER.ER) or all system data (SYSTEM.
current system status).
1. Use the UTILITY key to select the BULK OUT 1 or BULK
OUT 2 function.
2. Use the PARAM and SCROLL BACK keys to select the
data group to be dumped (ALL, MEM, BANK, USER.ER
or SYSTEM).
3. If you selected ALL or SYSTEM, simply press the STORE
key to execute the bulk dump.
4. If you select MEM, BANK or USER.ER, use the parameter
a and v keys to select the desired memory location
number, bank or user reflection pattern, then press STORE
to execute the BULK DUMP operation. Selecting % instead of a number will cause all the memories, all the
banks, or all the user reflection patterns to be transmitted.
29
ex.) F.SW MEMORY RCL RANGE 51 TO 60
*A bulk dump will only be received by the SPX900 if its
MEMORY PROTECT function is OFF and the MIDI
channel is the same as that of the transmitting equipment.
Since bulk data from a second SPX900, for example, is
loaded into the memory location(s) that it was transmitted
from, make sure that those locations do not contain
important data that will be overwritten.
F.SW MEMORY RCL
The SPX900 permits memory selection via an optional
Yamaha FC5 footswitch connected to the “INC/DEC”
footswitch jack. The F.SW MEMORY RCL function permits
setting the range of memory location numbers that will be
selected when the footswitch is pressed.
1. Use the UTILITY key to call the F-SW MEMORY RCL
function. The underline cursor should be located under the
first memory number in the range.
2. Use the parameter 0 and 0 keys to enter the first number
in the range.
3. Press the PARAM key to move the cursor to the second
number in the range.
4. Use the parameter a and 0 keys to enter the second number
in the range.
30
F.SW MEMORY RCL
RANGE 51 TO 6O
If, for example, the RANGE parameter is set to “51 TO 60” as
shown in the LCD illustration above, each time the footswitch
is pressed the next highest memory location will be selected
until the last number in the specified range is reached. After
the last number in the specified range, the first (lowest)
number is selected and the process repeated.
ex.) F.SW MEMORY RCL RANGE 54 TO 51
Reverse sequences can be programmed by entering the highest
number in the range before the lowest, as shown below.
F.SW MEMORY RCL
RANGE 54 TO 51
In this case the selection sequence is: 54 + 53 -+ 52 + 51 +
54, etc.
