IMPORTANT NOTES
Power Supply: Use of Batteries
301
● Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being
used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an
inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine, microwave
oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a motor. Depending
on the way in which the electrical appliance is used, power
supply noise may cause this unit to malfunction or may
produce audible noise. If it is not practical to use a separate
electrical outlet, connect a power supply noise filter between
this unit and the electrical outlet.
360
● Depending on the material and temperature of the surface on
which you place the unit, its rubber feet may discolor or mar
the surface.
You can place a piece of felt or cloth under the rubber feet to
prevent this from happening. If you do so, please make sure
that the unit will not slip or move accidentally.
Maintenance
401a
● When installing or replacing batteries, always turn off the
power on this unit and disconnect any other devices you may
have connected. This way, you can prevent malfunction and/
or damage to speakers or other devices.
● For everyday cleaning, use a soft, dry cloth (such as those used
to clean eyeglasses) to wipe the unit clean. If dust or dirt has
settled on the surface, we recommend that you gently dust off
the unit before you wipe it, since dust particles can act like an
abrasive and scratch the unit‘s surface if you wipe it without
clearing away the dust first. For stubborn dirt, use a cloth
dampened with mild detergent. Note that some detergents
may contain solvents; make sure that the detergent you use
does not contain a solvent.
307
402
302
● The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long hours of
consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a cause for concern.
304a
● Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the
power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or
damage to speakers or other devices.
Placement
351
● Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment
containing large power transformers) may induce hum. To
alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this unit; or
move it farther away from the source of interference.
352a
● This device may interfere with radio and television reception.
Do not use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
352b
● Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices,
such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit.
Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or
while conversing. Should you experience such problems, you
should relocate such wireless devices so they are at a greater
distance from this unit, or switch them off.
354a
● Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near devices
that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed vehicle, or
otherwise subject it to temperature extremes. Excessive heat
can deform or discolor the unit.
355b
● When moved from one location to another where the
temperature and/or humidity is very different, water droplets
(condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage or
malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in this
condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must allow it
to stand for several hours, until the condensation has
completely evaporated.
● Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind, to
avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.

452
● Please be aware that all data contained in the unit’s memory
may be lost when the unit is sent for repairs. Important data
should always be backed up on a USB memory, or written
down on paper (when possible). During repairs, due care is
taken to avoid the loss of data. However, in certain cases (such
as when circuitry related to memory itself is out of order), we
regret that it may not be possible to restore the data, and
Roland assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.
Additional Precautions
551
● Please be aware that the contents of memory can be
irretrievably lost as a result of a malfunction, or the improper
operation of the unit. To protect yourself against the risk of
loosing important data, we recommend that you periodically
save a backup copy of important data you have stored in the
unit’s memory on a USB memory.
552
● Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of

9 LINE IN jack
Set the [SETTING] switch to “GUITAR” or “MIC” unless
you’ve connected a condenser microphone that
requires phantom power.
Supplying phantom power to a dynamic microphone
will cause malfunction. For details on the specifications
of the microphone you’re using, refer to the owner’s
manual for your microphone.
Before you change the position of the [SETTING] switch,
set the volume to “0” using the [VOLUME] dial on the
side panel. If you change the position of the [SETTING]
switch while the volume is raised, loud noise may be
emitted, possibly damaging your amp and speakers.
7 [SENS] knob
This knob adjusts the input level of the device that’s
connected to the MIC IN jack or MIC/GUITAR IN jack.
When recording, use this knob to adjust the recording
level (p. 56).
* Setting [SENS] to the minimum position will not silence the
input completely. If you want to silence the microphone input
completely, set the Mic Input SW to the OFF setting (p. 59).
8 MIC IN jack
You can connect a portable audio player or similar device
here (p. 58).
10 LINE OUT jacks
These jacks output the audio signal of the amp and mixer
in stereo (p. 56).
11 Ground terminal
If necessary, you can connect this to an external electrical
ground.
927
* Depending on the circumstances of a particular setup, you
may experience a discomforting sensation, or perceive
that the surface feels gritty to the touch when you touch
this device, microphones connected to it, or the metal
portions of other objects, such as guitars. This is due to an
infinitesimal electrical charge, which is absolutely
harmless. However, if you are concerned about this,
connect the ground terminal with an external ground.
When the unit is grounded, a slight hum may occur,
depending on the particulars of your installation. If you are
unsure of the connection method, contact the nearest
Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor,
as listed on the separate sheet titled “Information.”
You can connect a microphone here (p. 55).
This is an analog audio input jack with a microphone preamp.
It can accept either balanced or unbalanced connections.
* The MIC/GUITAR IN jack and MIC IN jack cannot be used
simultaneously.
* The MIC IN jack can provide 48 V phantom power, allowing
a phantom-powered condenser microphone to be
connected.
Set the [SETTING] switch to the “MIC (DC 48 V 10 mA)” if a
phantom-powered condenser microphone is connected to
the MIC IN jack.
Unsuitable places for connection
• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)
• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)
• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be
dangerous in the event of lightning)

Using the SD-50 as a MIDI Sound Module
About the Sound Generator
The SD-50’s sound generator has the following two modes. In Normal mode, you can select sounds from the SD-50
itself. For more about selecting sounds, refer to “Selecting a Tone For Each Part” (p. 46).
Normal mode
This is the normal state of the SD-50. You’ll be able to select and play sounds from three groups: PRESET, GM2, and
Solo.
Group
Number of sounds
Explanation
PRESET
640 sounds+14 drum sets
This is the SD-50’s original set of sounds.
256 sounds +9 drum sets
These are sounds that comply with GM2, which standardizes MIDI sound
modules across manufacturers and models.
* You can choose the following two types of GM sounds. Specify the
desired GM type as described in “System Settings” (p. 72).
• Classical
This is the basic set of sounds that will blend easily into an ensemble.
You should also use this sound set if GM2 data compatibility is an
important consideration.
• Contemporary
This is a set of sounds that emphasizes the realism of each individual
instrument. This set is selected when the SD-50 is powered up.
3 sounds
These sounds realistically simulate the tonal characteristics of acoustic
instruments and the unique performance techniques used with a variety of
instruments.
For more about settings for Solo sounds and how to play them, refer to
“The Solo sounds and how to play them” (p. 106).

GS mode
Use this mode when you play back GS performance data. GS mode is activated when the SD-50 receives a GS Reset
MIDI message (system exclusive message).

Using the SD-50 as a MIDI Sound Module
Explanation of Terms
Tone
On the SD-50, a “tone” is the unit of sound (e.g., piano, organ, guitar) that you can select. For the available tones, refer
to PDF “Tone List.”
Drum set
A “drum set” is a group of percussion instrument sounds. Since percussion instruments are not usually used to play a
melody, it’s not necessary that you be able to play different pitches of the instrument from the keyboard. Rather, it’s
important that you be able to use a large number of percussion instrument sounds simultaneously.
For this reason, a drum set produces the sound of a different percussion instrument for each key (note number).
For the available drum sets, refer to PDF “Tone List.”
Part
On the SD-50, a “part” is a unit to which a tone or drum set is assigned.
The SD-50 provides sixteen parts, and you can assign a different tone or drum set to each part.
Effect
An “effect” refers to processing that can be applied to modify the sound. By switching effects, you can significantly
alter the character of the sound.
The SD-50 contains the following effects; you can modify the depth and type of each effect (p. 52).
Type
Explanation
Chorus
Adds depth and spaciousness to the sound.
Reverb
Adds the reverberation that is characteristic of a performance in a hall.
Mastering
Makes the overall sound more consistent and powerful.
Studio set
A “studio set” is a collection of settings for the sixteen parts and the effects.
fig.studio-set_e.eps
Studio set
Part 16
Effect
Part 1
Tone/
Drum set
Polyphony
The number of notes (polyphony) that the SD-50 can produce simultaneously will depend on the tones that are
selected. The SD-50’s maximum polyphony is 128 notes, but the actual polyphony will be less depending on the
tones you use.
If your performance exceeds the maximum polyphony, newly played notes will be given priority, while notes that
were sounded previously will be turned off one by one.

Using the SD-50 as an SMF/Audio Player
The SD-50 can function as a music player that can play SMF or audio files.
You can use your computer to create a “playlist” that specifies a playback order for “songs” (SMF/audio files), and
then transfer this via USB memory and use it on the SD-50.
In addition to playing songs in the order specified by a playlist, you can also select and play individual songs from the
playlist.
Getting ready to use the SD-50 as a player
1. Copy the data to USB memory

About V-LINK
What is V-LINK?
V-LINK (
) is a function that lets you present music and video simultaneously. When V-LINK
compatible devices are connected via MIDI, you’ll be able to easily enjoy a variety of visual effects that are linked to
the expressive elements of your performance.
For example, if you use the SD-50 with the EDIROL P-10, you’ll be able to do the following.
• Use the various controllers of the SD-50 console to switch and control images on the EDIROL P-10.
• In order to enjoy V-LINK with the SD-50 and the EDIROL P-10, you’ll need to make connections using MIDI cables (sold
separately).
Example Connection
Here we explain an example of connecting the SD-50 to the EDIROL P-10. Use a MIDI cable to connect the SD-50’s
MIDI OUT connector to the EDIROL P-10’s MIDI IN connector.
* To prevent malfunction and speaker damage, you must minimize the volume on all equipment and turn off their
power before you make any connections.

Driver Settings
The settings window of the SD-50 driver allows you to make settings such as the audio input/output buffer size.
Decreasing the buffer size will decrease the latency and improve the realtime response. However, depending on the
processing power of your computer and the complexity of your song data, this may make clicks and pops during
recording or playback more likely.
Increasing the buffer size will increase the latency, but will make audio data transfer more stable, decreasing the
likelihood of clicks and pops.
If you’re playing a software synthesizer in real time or using your DAW software to monitor the “thru” signal of the
audio input, you should decrease the buffer size in order to improve the realtime response.
Conversely, if you’re recording or playing back song data that contains numerous tracks and imposes a heavy
processing load on your computer, you should increase the buffer size in order to decrease clicks and pops.
Change the buffer size as appropriate for your situation in order to achieve a balance between realtime response and
audio data transfer, while avoiding problems such as clicks and pops.

If you experience a problem, read this chapter first. It contains information that may help you solve the problem. If the information here
does not help you solve the problem, try accessing the Roland website. If you are still unable to solve the problem, please contact a
service location listed at the end of this manual.
Problems Using The SD-50 as a Player
If a message appears in the screen during use, refer to “Error Messages” (p. 104).
Overall
• Is the SD-50 connected to a computer?
The Player function cannot be used when the SD-50 is
connected to a computer. Nor is it possible to play the
SD-50’s sound generator via the MIDI IN connector.
Power will not turn on
• Make sure that the SD-50’s AC adaptor is correctly connected
to an outlet and to the SD-50 (p. 20).
• Check to see if you have enough battery power remaining (p.
21).
Problems with the Sound
No sound
Check the following points.
• Are the connected amp and speaker powered up? Could the
volume be lowered?
• Could the [VOLUME] knob be turned down?
• Are the connections correct?
No sound from a specific part
Check the following points.
• Could the volume of that part be turned down?
Raise the Level setting of that part to increase the volume
(p. 50).
• Could the part be set to “M” (Mute)?
Change the setting to “-” (p. 49).
Sound is distorted
Check the following points.
• If the overall sound is distorted, use [VOLUME] dial to lower
the volume.
• Could the Output Gain be raised excessively?
Check the system setting Output Gain (p. 73).
• Can you hear sound through headphones?
• If you can hear sound through headphones, it may be that
the connection cables are broken, or that your amp or
speaker has malfunctioned. Check the cables and your
equipment once again.
• Could the part level settings have been minimized?
Check the level of each part (p. 50).
• Are the effect settings appropriate?
Check the effect on/off, effect balance, and level settings
(p. 50).
• Could a MIDI message received from an external MIDI device
(volume message or exclusive message) have lowered the
volume?
88
Pitch is incorrect
Check the following points.
• Could the SD-50’s tuning be incorrect?
Check the Master Tune setting (p. 73).
• Could the pitch have been changed by a pitch bend message
received from an external MIDI device?
Notes are interrupted
• If a large number of notes are played, notes might be
interrupted.
Reduce the number of tones being used.
SD-50_e.book 89 ページ 2010年1月25日 月曜日 午前10時52分
Troubleshooting
Even though you set a tone’s pan all the way to
one channel, sound is still heard from the
opposite channel
The SD-50’s built-in effects are stereo. This means that if
you’ve applied an internal effect, the effect sound will still be
heard from the opposite channel even if a tone is panned all
the way to one side.
The sound becomes strange when you play high
notes
Playing high notes on the SD-50 might produce an
unexpected result, including no sound at all, failure of the
sound to go higher in pitch, or noise that changes depending
on the key you play (warbling, chirping, beeping, buzzing,
etc.)
This is mainly caused by exceeding the limit of high notes
that the SD-50 is able to produce; this occurs for notes that
are not normally played, and does not indicate a malfunction.
Insufficient volume from a device connected to
the SD-50’s INPUT
Could you be using a connection cable that contains a builtin resistor?
Use a connection cable that does not contain a resistor.
This means that even if these are set to their maximum value
of 127, there will be no effect if the send level of the patch
you’re using has been lowered.
If you want to apply the effect more deeply, you’ll need to
edit the settings of the patch. The patch’s send levels to
chorus and reverb can be specified separately depending on
whether you’re using multi-effects.
Problems when Saving Data
Settings are different than those saved in the
studio set
Check the following points.
• The settings of the mastering effect may have changed.
(These settings are not included in the studio set.)
Problems with MIDI and External Devices
Playback on your external sequencer lags or is
interrupted
If the playback lags or is interrupted, it is likely that the
sequencer or sound module is experiencing a heavy
processing load.
Here are the main causes and what you can do about them.
Problems with Effects
Effect not applied
Check the following points.
• Are the various effect settings appropriate? (p. 51)
• There will be no effect if the corresponding effect’s send level
is at 0. Check the settings.
• Even if the effect’s send level is above 0, there will be no
effect if the multi-effect output level, chorus level, or reverb
level are at 0. Check these settings.
The effect is difficult to notice even if you raise
the chorus or reverb send level of each part
The send level to the chorus and reverb effects can be
specified for each part, but these values specify the amount
that will be used of the patch’s own chorus and reverb send
levels.
• Could the polyphony be exceeding 128?
Try reducing the number of notes that are played
simultaneously.
• Could a large amount of data be concentrated at the
beginning of a beat in the sequence data?
Try staggering the timing by one or two clocks so that data
does not occur at the same timing.
It’s easy for song data to be concentrated at the beginning of
a beat if you use step recording to create song data, or if you
apply quantization after real-time recording from a keyboard.
This may cause a large amount of data to be transmitted to
the SD-50 at the same time, causing playback to lag.
• Could there be program changes at the locations where the
playback lags?
Try changing the location of the program change data.
If you insert program changes in your song, processing time
may be required in order to switch tones, causing the
playback to lag.
89
SD-50_e.book 90 ページ 2010年1月25日 月曜日 午前10時52分
Troubleshooting
• Could there be system exclusive data at the locations where
the playback lags?
Try changing the location of the system exclusive data. Since
system exclusive messages involve a large amount of data,
they can place a significant processing load on the sequencer
or sound module.
Try changing the location of the data, or if possible, replace
the system exclusive data with a control change.
• Could there be a large amount of control change data (such
as aftertouch) at the locations where the playback lags?
Try changing the location of the data. If you don’t need the
data, delete it.
If the keyboard you use for recording is transmitting
aftertouch messages, a large amount of aftertouch data may
be recorded without your noticing.
This large amount of data can place an excessive processing
load on the sequencer or sound module.
You’ve connected an external sequencer or MIDI
keyboard to the MIDI IN connector and are
attempting to play the SD-50’s sounds, but you
don’t hear anything
Check the following points.
• Make sure that the external MIDI device’s MIDI transmit
channel matches the SD-50’s MIDI receive channel.
• Could the SD-50 be connected via USB to your computer?
If you’ve connected the SD-50 to a computer and are trying
to use an external device to play the SD-50’s sound
generator, you should switch on your software’s “MIDI Thru”
setting.
The bend range is set to the maximum, but the
pitch does not rise all the way when pitch bend
messages are received via MIDI
The bend range can be set in the range of 0–24, but
depending on the wave that’s used, there are cases in which
the pitch will not rise all the way; i.e., the pitch might stop
rising at a certain pitch.
Sounds are guaranteed to rise through a bend range setting
of 12, but please be aware that bend range settings greater
than this are not guaranteed to work.
90
Problems with External Input
No sound (or insufficient volume) from a device
connected to MIC/GUITAR IN or LINE IN
Check the following points.
• Are the audio cables connected correctly?
Check the connections.
• Could an audio cable be broken?
• Could you be using a connection cable that contains a
resistor?
Use a connection cable that does not contain a resistor.
• Could the [SENS] knob be set to “MIN”?
Adjust the level appropriately.
• Is the [SETTING] switch at the appropriate position?
Set the [SETTING] switch as appropriate for the device that’s
connected.
No sound from the microphone
• Could you have connected a condenser microphone?
If you’re using a condenser microphone, you’ll need to supply
phantom power to it.
Set the [SETTING] switch to “DC 48 V 10 mA” (p. 56).
• Could the microphone cable be broken?

Insufficient volume from your guitar or
microphone
Is the [SETTING] switch set correctly?
Check the [SETTING] switch (p. 56).
Is the input level appropriate?
Try turning the SD-50’s [SENS] knob toward the right to
increase the input level (p. 56).
Could you be using a cable that contains a
resistor?
Make connections using a cable that does not contain an
internal resistor.
Playback contains clicks, dropouts, or other
problems
Try adjusting the audio buffer size of your
software
If your software allows you to adjust the audio buffer size, try
changing the setting. Normally, clicks and pops can be
eliminated by increasing the buffer size.
Try adjusting the audio buffer size of the driver
If your software does not allow you to adjust the buffer size,
or if adjusting the buffer size in your software does not solve
the problem, you may be able to solve the problem by
changing the driver’s audio input/output buffer size.
Try adjusting the buffer size as described in “Driver Settings”
(p. 83).
Try increasing the “Recording margin” (Mac OS X)
If there are still clicks and pops in the recorded audio data
even after you’ve adjusted the audio buffer size, try
increasing the “Recording margin” as described in “About
the Items in the Settings Dialog Box” (p. 85).

Troubleshooting
Check the power management settings
Try disabling the LAN
You may be able to eliminate clicks and pops by changing
your system’s power management settings.
In your computer’s Device Manager, try disabling LAN (wired/
wireless).
➝ “Power Management Settings” (p. 100)
If this eliminates the clicks and pops, it may be that updating
your LAN driver or BIOS may solve the problem. Check
whether updated software is available.
Try updating the driver of your display adaptor
(Windows)
You may be able to eliminate clicks and pops by updating the
driver for the display adaptor installed in your computer.
Have you set the system’s “Performance” setting?
(Windows)
You may be able to solve the problem by changing the
“Performance” setting of the system.
➝ “System “Performance” Settings (Windows)” (p. 101)
Could other software programs be running?
Close software that you’re not using.
If the window of a Windows program has been closed but it is
still shown in the taskbar, that program is still running. Close
all unneeded software that’s shown in the taskbar.
Have you tried Windows Update or Microsoft
Update? (Windows)
Try using Windows Update or Microsoft Update (provided by
the Microsoft Corporation) to update your system to the
latest version.
Could you have connected the SD-50 to a USB hub?
Try connecting the SD-50 directly to a USB connector on your
computer.
Are you using the included USB cable?
You must use the included USB cable when using the SD-50.
Some commercially available USB cables do not meet the
requirements of the USB standard, and this may prevent the
SD-50 from operating correctly.
Could you have updated the Mac OS X software
while SD-50 was connected?
It has been found that clicks or pops can occur if you
performed a Mac OS X software update while the SD-50 was
connected. If so, install the driver once again (p. 87).
Could the monitoring function of Windows be
enabled? (Windows 7)
If the monitoring function of Windows is enabled, the input
sound might be heard in duplicate (doubled) or as a loop
(feedback).
In this case, disable the monitor function of Windows.
In the driver settings dialog box, try selecting the
“Light Load” check box
To view or change the settings, proceed as described in
“Driver Settings” (p. 83).
This change will take effect after you turn the SD-50’s power
off, then on again. Unless you are experiencing problems,
you should leave this check box cleared (the default state).
➝ “Windows Monitoring Function Settings (Windows 7)”
(p. 103)
Click or pops may occur in the playback/recording
immediately after you start up your computer, or
immediately after it has been waken from sleep

Try adjusting “Hardware Acceleration” in the
advanced display properties (Windows XP)
In some cases, adjusting your graphics acceleration settings
may solve problems with noise during audio playback.
➝ “Hardware Acceleration Settings (Windows XP)” (p. 99)
Noise or distortion occurs elsewhere than in
the playback from your computer
Is a guitar connected?
If the noise decreases when you lower your guitar’s volume, it
may be that your guitar’s pickups are being affected by noise
from your computer or display. Move the guitar as far away
from your computer as possible.
Could you have left an unused microphone or
guitar connected?
If an unused microphone or guitar is connected to the SD-50,
disconnect the microphone or guitar, and turn the [SENS]
knob to MIN in order to lower the input level.
Have you connected the ground terminal?
You may be able to solve the problem by grounding a metal
component of your computer or the ground pin of your
computer’s AC adaptor. Also check whether there might be a
device nearby that is emitting a strong electromagnetic field,
such as a television or microwave oven.
Recorded sound is too loud or too soft
Is the input level appropriate?
Use the SD-50’s [SENS] knob to adjust the input level. If your
software is able to adjust the input level, check its input level
setting.

Solo Tone
Solo Tone
The Solo sounds and how to play them
The Solo sounds allow you to reproduce the natural tonal changes (changes in dynamics) that are distinctive of each instrument as
you range from delicate soft notes to strongly played powerful notes—not merely changes in the volume.
* Dynamics can be controlled by Note-on Velocity, Modulation controller (CC01), and Expression (CC11).
* Since the Modulation controller is assigned to dynamics, Vibrato has been assigned to be controlled by channel pressure
messages.
After pressing a key, you can operate the Modulation controller (CC01) or Expression pedal (CC11) to continuously control the dynamics.
By playing legato (i.e., by pressing the next note before you release the previous note) you can create smooth transitions between notes.
* In order to obtain the legato effect, set the Mono/Poly mode (CC126=Mono/CC127=Poly) to Mono. With the Solo sounds, set to
Mono upon power-up.
Normally, even an instrument that is set to play in Mono mode will allow you to sound a chord by pressing two or more notes
simultaneously. When all notes turn off, the instrument will return to Mono mode.
* This effect will be obtained if the Mono/Poly mode is set to Mono.
Wind instruments (Shakuhachi, Trombone) allow you to control Growl Sens (CC18). This lets you vary the distinctive nuance (growl)
that occurs when you blow strongly into a wind instrument.
You can use CC16 to vary the Noise Level. This controls the breath noise of a wind instrument, or the bowing noise or picking noise of
a string instrument.
You can use CC17 to vary the Play Stability (accuracy of the performance). If this value is 0, the pitch during the attack of the sound
will be unstable. Higher values allow you to play more precise pitches.
Variations for the Solo sounds
Each instrument provides effective performance variation sounds, and you can use control changes (CC80/CC81) to instantly switch
between these while you play.

Features of the Solo sounds
Sound
Features
Violin
• If you play two or more notes simultaneously, a chord will sound, simulating the double-stop playing technique of a violin.
When all notes turn off, the instrument will return to mono mode.
* Vibrato will not automatically be applied below the lowest note that a violin can sound (note number 55). This simulates the
resonance of the open strings.
Trombone
• Playing legato with the portamento switch ON will produce the glissando effect that is typical of a trombone.
• Moving the bender up will produce the discontinuous pitch change that is distinctive of brass instruments. (*1)
• Moving the bender down will produce a “fall” effect. (*1)
Shakuhachi
• The distinctive breath noise of the shakuhachi is simulated.
• Play strongly (note-on velocity 115) to produce the effect of allowing a large amount of breath to be heard in the sound.
• When you play legato, notes will be connected as if they were played with a single breath. While playing legato, play strongly
(note-on velocity 115) to simulate a grace note characteristic of a shakuhachi.
*1:
This effect will be obtained if control change (CC82) is ON. If this is OFF, the normal pitch bend effect will occur.
(CC82: 0–63 = OFF, 64–127 = ON)
