What is a pattern?
A pattern is somewhat like a short song. You can create several patterns, and then
combine them to create a song. You can also use the pads to play (play back) patterns.
Some advantages of patterns
• You can start inputting data right away, even before deciding on the overall
structure of the song.
• Patterns can be conveniently used to create songs consisting of loops that are
each several measures long.
• You can rearrange the patterns to easily try out different versions of your song.
• You can use patterns as a place to store ideas for songs.
Using patterns and projects together
● Pattern
Pattern
Audio Track
MIDI Track
● Song
A pattern track has been added, letting you place various patterns in any playback
order you like.

If you edit the contents of a pattern (for example in the PATTERN EDIT screen), your
changes will be reflected by the patterns you've pasted in the pattern track.
● Project
Up to 500 patterns can exist within a project. You can use these patterns from sixteen
songs.

The procedure for Pattern recording, editing, and setting operations is essentially the
same as for Song operations (e.g., in the SEQUENCE screen).
Limitations when using patterns
The pattern uses the same
instrument settings as the
song.
You can't mixdown a pattern
“as-is”; however, you can
place a pattern in the pattern
track of a song, and mix it
down as a section within that
song. The same applies to
external synchronization.
• You can't layer two or more patterns so that they play simultaneously.
• Each pattern contains a tempo setting, but if it's being played within a song, the
song tempo will be used.

Value
OverDub1
OverDub2
Replace
Explanation
The new material you record will be added to the existing material
without erasing it. By using this type in conjunction with Loop
Recording, you can repeatedly record over a specified region
without erasing the existing material. For example this is a
convenient way to record a drum track, since you can record bass
drum → snare drum → hi-hat etc. on each successive pass.
This is new function in version 3.0 software. When newly recorded
note events at the same time location as previously recorded note
events will replace the older events.
The new material you record will replace the existing material. Use
this type when you want to re-record your performance.
OverDub1 is the same as the
function displayed as
“OverDub” in version 2.0.
• Pattern Length
Use this to specify the length of the pattern you want to record.
Range:
1–2–999 (Meas)
• Loop Rest

After the loop, a wait of one measure will be inserted. Then loop
recording will continue (when Rec Mode parameter is OverDub1
or OverDub2).

Using the Effect
Effect (Analog Modeling Bass)
Analog Modeling Bass has been added to the effects.
Analog Modeling Bass is an algorithm that replicates the operation of an analog
synthesizer.
If you control the parameters with the Velocity Pads or externally with MIDI messages,
you can get analog synthesizer sounds with the virtual VCO (Voltage Controlled
Oscillator). Furthermore, with sections corresponding to VCF (Voltage Controlled
Filter) and VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier), you can also process external sound
input as is. Additionally, a ring modulator is included, and with the output from the
delay and chorus (or flanger), it can be used as a powerful multipurpose filter/effect
device.
Other than the delay and
chorus/flanger, the effect
portions of this algorithm
cannot be turned off.

Explanation of each block,
p. 55–
By selecting Analog Modeling Bass, you can use the MV-8000’s effect section as a
monophonic synthesizer. You can control note-on/off and pitch in several ways.
Playing from the Effect knobs
If you want to use the synthesizer to create a sound effect, rather than playing definite
pitches in a scale, you can use the effect knobs to easily make the synthesizer start or
stop producing sound. For example, you can assign the following parameters to the
effect knobs.
C1:
Trigger In (p. 55)
C2:
Note Number (p. 55)
C3:
VCF Cutoff (p. 58)
VCF Reso (p. 58)
LFO Rate (p. 61)
LFO Depth (p. 61)
etc.
The synthesizer will begin sounding when you turn C1 to the right, and will stop when
you turn it to the left. Turning C2 will change the pitch. If the Common parameter
Portamento (p. 55) is on, the pitch will change smoothly.
While you listen to the song play or a sample loop, turn the knobs to control the sound
effect as desired.

V-LINK device to the MV-8000, and pressing the V-LINK button of your external
V-LINK device, you can create the appropriate setup without changing any MIDI
settings on the MV-8000. This lets you use an external device to easily control the
images that are being output from the MV-8000 (V-LINK Slave operation).
Make these connections only
with the power to all devices
turned off.
Note regarding using the V-LINK
• MV-8000 must be started up before the MIDI device’s V-LINK button is
pressed.
• In order to receive V-LINK messages, you must set the Slave Rx Select
parameter to the MIDI connector to which the V-LINK device is connected.
• The functions that can be controlled may vary with the V-LINK compatible
MIDI device.
Refer to the owner’s manual for each MIDI device for more information on the device’s
compatibility.
• The MV-8000’s Slave Rx Sw will be turned on when it receives a V-LINK ON
message from the MIDI connector specified by the Slave Rx Select parameter.
This allows the various V-LINK messages to perform setup and control
functions (V-LINK Slave operation).
For more detailed information
on these messages, refer to the
V-LINK Message (p. 38).
• The same MIDI messages are received whether the V-LINK function is on or
not.
Using the MV-8000 to operate an external V-LINK
device (V-LINK Master)
If you want to control an external V-LINK device from the MV-8000, press the
MV-8000’s V-LINK button (V-LINK Master operation). The V-LINK button will light
blue. For details on how to use this, refer to the MV-8000 Owner’s Manual “Using
V-LINK devices.”
Using V-LINK from an external device (V-LINK Slave)
You can turn the V-LINK Slave function on from another V-LINK device connected to
the MV-8000. In this case, the MV-8000 will receive control messages from the external
device, and will switch the images that it is outputting.
1. Connect your external V-LINK device to the MV-8000.
Use a MIDI cable to connect the external device’s MIDI OUT connector to
the MV-8000’s MIDI IN connector.
2. Press
+
If you connect it to the MIDI
IN of the DIF-AT24 (sold
separately), you will also be
able to input via the R-BUS of
the MV8-OP1 (sold

5.
Depth
OSC1/OSC2
Sets the depth of the OSC1 or OSC2 vibrato (the
cyclical change in pitch caused b the LFO).
The LFO is the oscillator that creates a swelling sound.
By greatly increasing the values for parameters such as
VCO vibrato, PWM depth, and LFO depth (explained
below), you can get various kinds of vibrating sounds
(periodic, cyclical changes) in tone and pitch.
1.
Waveform
Sets the waveform of the vibration.

Tri (Triangle wave)
Sqr (Square wave)
Value: 0–+100
VCF
Sets the depth of the vibrating cutoff frequency by the
LFO. As the value is increased, the cyclical tone change
gets bigger.
Value: 0–+100
VCA
Sets the depth of the wavering volume (tremolo effect).
As the value is increased, the variation in volume
increases.
Value: 0–+100

2.
Rate
Sets the rate of the vibration. When set to 0, the rate is
approximately 0.1 Hz (10 seconds per cycle), and at a
setting of 100, the rate is approximately 20 Hz (20
cycles per second). In Tempo Sync this is disabled, and
you cannot make this setting.
Value: 0–100
3.
Tempo Sync
This setting synchronizes the rate to the tempo of the
song. When not synchronizing, set this “Off.” When
you select the note, the rate setting is disabled, and the
rate is set the note length corresponding to the tempo.
When synchronizing to a song’s tempo, if the length of
the note is set longer (or shorter) than that of the
possible range of rate settings by the change of song
tempo, the rate can not correspond to the note length.
Value: Off,
-
If “?” appears before the note symbol you set, it is because
the upper (or lower) limit of the setting range has been
exceeded, and that the synchronization is not correct.
Furthermore, the precision of the Rate setting and song
tempo differ. If left to develop over long periods, the two

Effect
Virtual VCO + Ring
Coarse/Fine
Sets the pitch of the sound from OSC1. With 0 as the
reference, coarse tuning adjusts the pitch in semitone
increments, fine tuning in cents (1/100 of a semitone).
Coarse Value: -24–+24
Fine Value: -100–+100
PitchKF (Pitch Key Follow)
This setting determines whether the pitch of Oscillator
1 (hereafter OSC1) changes according to the Note
Number in Common (On) or not (Off).
Value: Off, On
This reproduces the VCO (Voltage Controlled
Oscillator) virtually. It comprises two oscillators, OSC1
and OSC2, a noise generator, and ring modulator.
Settings include those for the waveforms that are the
basis of synthesizer sounds and pitch settings for the
two oscillators.
1.
X-Mod. (Cross Modulation)
Sets the depth of the OSC1 cross modulation effect (the
modulation of the OSC1 pitch by oscillation from the
OSC2). As the value is increased, the increased
overtones make the sound more powerful.
Value: 0–100
OSC1 (Oscillator 1)
Wave
2.
OSC2 (Oscillator 2)
These are the settings for OSC2. The effect of these
settings are the same as those in OSC1 (there is no cross
modulation included in OSC2).
3.
Ring Mod. (Ring Modulator)
Sets the waveform for the sound produced by OSC1.
Value
Tri
(Triangle wave)
Pul
(Pulse wave)
Saw
(Sawtooth wave)
Explanation
A clear sound with few overtones.
This sound varies depending on the
settings in the following parameters
(Width, PWM).
A thick sound filled with overtones.
Width
Sets the pulse width when the “pulse wave” (Pul) is
selected for the OSC1 waveform. Increasing the value
narrows the pulse width. This has no effect if the OSC1
waveform is not set to “pulse wave” (Pul).
Value: 0–100
fig.10-36
Width=0
Width=50
Width=80
Width=100
Src1 (Ring Modulator Source 1)
Src2 (Ring Modulator Source 2)
You can select from two ring modulator inputs.
Besides the oscillators OSC1 and OSC2, “Noise” or
“ExtIn” (external input) may also be selected.
Value: Src1 OSC1, OSC2, Noise, ExtIn
By multiplying the ring modulator’s two inputs each
other, you can create sounds that include numerous
overtones not found in either waveform. You can get
metallic sounds unrelated to any sense of harmony.
To play the VCO’s sounds (OSC1, OSC2, noise
generator, and ring modulator), raise the volume level
of each in the VCF mixer at the next stage. The
synthesizer sounds are tuned to A4 (440.0 Hz). If you
want to have A4 set to 442 Hz, set the Fine reference
setting of OSC1 and OSC2 above not to ±0, but to +8.
PWM (Pulse Width Modulation)
When OSC1 Wave is set to “pulse wave” (Pul), this set
the depth which the LFO vibrates the pulse width. This
gives the characteristic cyclical change in tone.
Increasing the value deepens the effect. This is
effective only when the OSC1 waveform is set to
“pulse wave” (Pul).
Value: 0–+100
When both OSC1 Pulse Width and OSC1 Pulse Width
Modulation settings are large, the periodic or cyclical sound
may become inaudible.

Effect
Virtual VCF
4.
Cutoff (Cutoff Frequency)
Sets the filter’s cutoff frequency. Set this closer to zero,
the cutoff frequency becomes lower; set closer to 100,
the cutoff frequency becomes higher.
This setting varies with the addition of changes from
the envelope, LFO, and other changes.
Value: 0–100
5.
This reproduces, virtually, the VCF (Voltage
Controlled Filter). The sounds from the VCO or input
from external sources are processed with a filter that
moves the cutoff frequency as needed, and creates
brightness (or hardness) in the tone and changes in
tone brightness over time. There is a mixer to set the
input level from each of the sound generators at the
input section of the VCF.
1.
Value: 0–100
If the resonance value is raised to much, extreme oscillation
can arise. Take care not to allow this sound to damage your
ears or your playback equipment. To stop this oscillation
immediately, press EFFECTS PROCESSOR [On/Off].
6.
Envelope
Depth (Envelope Depth)
Mixer
OSC1 (Oscillator 1), OSC2 (Oscillator 2), Noise,
ExtIn, Ring M
Sets the input level to the VCF from each of the sound
generators. Mute unneeded sounds by setting them to
0.
Value: 0–100
2.
Reso (Resonance)
Sets the filter’s resonance level. Raising the setting
increases resonance near the cutoff frequency, giving
the sound a special characteristic.
Type
Sets the type of filter used.
Sets the depth of the Filter Envelope (the function of
changing the filter’s frequency characteristics over
time).
Value: -100–+100
A (Attack Time)
The elapsed time starting at the point Trigger In is
switched “On” to the point at which the cutoff
frequency reaches the peak value.
Value: 0–100
Value
LPF
(Low pass filter)
BPF
(Band pass filter)

3.
Explanation
Passes frequencies below the cut off
frequency.
Passes frequencies near the cut off frequency.
Passes frequencies above the cut off
frequency.
Passes frequencies other than those
near the cut off frequency.
Curve
Sets the filter’s slope characteristics at the cutoff
frequency (-24 dB at one octave: steep; -12 dB at one
octave: shallow).
Value: -12 dB, -24 dB
Some analog synthesizers featured -12 dB/octave, -24
dB/octave, or other slopes.
D (Decay Time)
The elapsed time from the point at which the cutoff
frequency reaches the peak value until reaching to the
sustain level (next item).
Value: 0–100
S (Sustain Level)
The level of the cutoff frequency after the decay time
(previous item) is passed and until Trigger In is
switched “Off.”
Value: 0–100
R (Release Time)
The elapsed time from when Trigger In is switched
“Off” until the cutoff frequency return to the original
(pre-attack) value.
These are the filter envelope settings. Select the contour
through the attack, decay, sustain, and release, and set the
degree of effect with the envelope depth. If a negative value
is selected for the envelope depth, the envelope shape is
inverted.
Value: 0–100

Velo Sens (Velocity Sens)
Sets the degree to which the cutoff frequency reflects
the value of the Velocity in Common. As the value is
increased, the cutoff frequency which follows the
Velocity (the strength or force at pressing key) gets
higher.
This reproduces, virtually, the VCA (Voltage
Controlled Amplifier).
Sounds from the VCF are amplified as they change
over time, and the resulting amplified volume levels
and changes are then output.
Value: 0–100
8.
Cutoff KF (Cutoff Key Follow)
This setting determines whether the cutoff frequency
changes according with the Note Number in Common
(On) or not (Off).
1.
Value: Off, On
9.
Ext Lev Follow (External Level Follow)
Sets the degree to which the linked external input
volume level changes the cutoff frequency. As the
value is increased, you get an effect in which the tone
changes more dynamically according to the rhythm of
the input.
Value: -100–100
Initial Gain
Sets the reference volume. When set to any value
except 0, sound plays even when the Trigger In is
turned Off, with the volume increasing as the value is
increased. (Volume changes based on the envelope,
LFO, or other input are added to this volume level.)
Thus, when setting Trigger In for regulation of sound
expression, set this to 0, and regulate the volume with
the envelope depth.
Value: 0–100
2.
Envelope
Depth
Sets the depth of the envelope (the function of
changing the amplifier’s volume over time).
Value: 0–200
A (Attack Time)
The elapsed time from when Trigger In is switched
“On” to the point of maximum volume.
Value: 0–100
D (Decay Time)
The elapsed time from the point of maximum volume
until reaching the sustain level (next item).
Value: 0–100
S (Sustain Level)
The volume level after passage of the decay time
(previous item) up until Trigger In is switched “Off.”
Value: 0–100
R (Release Time)
The elapsed time from when Trigger In is switched
“Off” until the volume reaches its minimum value.
These are the volume envelope settings. Select the contour
with attack, decay, sustain, and release, and set the degree of
effect with the envelope depth.
Value: 0–100

Velo Sens (Velocity Sens)
This sets the degree to which the volume corresponds
to the value of the Velocity in Common. As the value is
increased, the volume level which follows the Velocity
(the strength or force at pressing key) is increased.
Delay
Value: 0–100
4.
Ext Lev Follow (External Level Follow)
Sets the degree to which changes in the tremolo effect
are linked to and controlled by the external input
volume level. As the value is increased, you get an
effect in which the synthesizer sound is played
intermittently according to the rhythm of the external
input (such as drum phrases).
This digital delay can be switched between monaural
and alternate modes (left and right channels
mutually). The maximum delay of 2400 msec (2.4
seconds) provides long echoes, fat, or thick sounds.
Value: 0–100
You can also use this simply and effectively as a long
delay machine by setting the VCF input to “ExtIn”
(external input) and then raising only that.
1.

This switches the mode of the delay.
Explanation
A single-input, single-output delay
Value
Mono
(Monaural)
ALT

When you select the note, the Delay Time is set to
match the length of the note.
Value: Off,
-
If “?” appears before the note symbol you set, it is because
the upper (or lower) limit of the setting range has been
exceeded, and that the synchronization is not correct.
Furthermore, the precision of the Rate setting and song
tempo differ. If left to develop over long periods, the two
may gradually drift apart.

Chorus/Flanger
Mode
This is used to select either the chorus or flanger.
Setting this to “Chorus” adds an effect of spaciousness
and wavering, and setting it to “Flanger” adds the
flanger effect, a metallic undulation (rising and falling
sound).
-
If “?” appears before the note symbol you set, it is because
the upper (or lower) limit of the setting range has been
exceeded, and that the synchronization is not correct.
Furthermore, the precision of the Rate setting and song

1.
Tempo Sync
Set this when synchronizing the Rate to the song
tempo. When not synchronizing, set this “Off.” When
you select the note, the Rate setting is disabled, and the
Rate is set the note length corresponding to the tempo.
When synchronizing to a song’s tempo, if the length of
the note is set longer than that of the possible range of
rate settings by the change of song tempo, the Rate can
not correspond to the note length.
Value: Off,
Value: 0–100
This effect can select either a chorus effect, which adds
spaciousness and a wavering effect to the sound, or a
flanger effect, which adds a metallic undulation (rising
and falling sound).
Resonance
Sets the intensity of the flanger effect. This has no effect
in Chorus mode.
Modulation L-R Phase
This setting determines whether the timing of the pitch
wavering and undulation (rise and fall) coincides
(NonInv), or inverts (Inv).
Value: NonInv, Inv
The oscillator (LFO) used to create these chorus and flanger
sounds separates from the common oscillator used by the
synthesizer as a whole.
Value: Chorus, Flanger
