Pressing both PAGE -/+ keys simulataneously blocks the Voices of the Arranger, which means that
they will not change when changing the Style. This condition is shown in the display by a dot beside
cach of the Arranger sections.
Each time a Style is selected, even though this may be playing with some parameters that have been
modified, the default parameters will be re-cstablished (therefore also the original Tempo, the Voices
and Volumes).
1 is also possible to change DRUM SET in the current STYLE by pressing DRUM SET and selecting
the new set with the VALUE -/+ keys.
This selection will also be lost when selecting a new Style, if not saved in a Registration.

MIDI LOCK FOR
REGISTRATION When this function 15 “On”, all the parameters arc separated from the
Registration. This means that when a Registration is recalled, this will
not be able to vary the MIDI settings. On the contrary, when in ‘Off’,
all the MIDI settings will be according to the last Registration recalled.
Suppose that you carried out some MIDI settings (for example, Right Hand on MIDI channel 1, Bass
on MIDI channel 2 etc.) and memorized them in a Registration, then you made some different settings
(for example, right hand on MIDI channel 3, bass on MIDI channel 4 etc.) and memorized them in
another Registration.
Having done this, on changing from one Registration to another, the MIDI settings will vary, causing
an interruption in the communication with an external MIDI unit. Consider a case where an expander
is connecled to the MS60/50 with the intention of creating a second sound for the solo:
In the first Registration proposed above, the expander will be set to receive on MIDI channel 1, but
on passing to the second example (that 1s with the Right Hand set to MIDI channel 3), the expander
(set to receive on channel |) will not be able to carry out it's function of providing the second solo
instrument tor the right hand.
To solve this problem the “MIDI LOCK” function has been implemented enabling the temporary
deactivation of the MIDI scttings memorized in the Registration. at the same time compelling all
Registrations to use the current MIDI settings selected m the MIDI menu.
In this way all the Registrations have the same settings and changing to another causes no problems
for the external units connected.

The value can now be set by means of the VALUE -/+ keys within a range of from 1 to 127.
Once the value has been set, a further parameter can be assigned to cach voice, that is the type of dynamics
involved (low velocity or high velocity).
With the settings shown by the arrows for the GRAND and NYLON voices in the above display, when
playing on the keyboard, both voices will play together. Appropriate sctting of the type of dynamics for
each voice will enable you to play specific voices according to whether you play in a hard or soft manner.
To set the most appropriate type of dynamic switch to the voice in question, press the relative function key
(F1 to F4) with the above display showing. Both arrows showing indicate that the voice will play at any
velocity; an arrow pointing to the left will enable the voice to play with a low velocity key movement and
vice-versa an arrow pomting to the right will enable the voice to play with a high velocity key movement.
Press F1 to flash the corresponding arrows in the display and then press the VALUE - key to setthe L.H.

(playmg Lightly does not activate the switch}. If you play hard on the keyboard (high velocity), both
the GRAND piano and the NYLON guitar will play.
To create an opposite situation, set the GRAND voice with a R.H. arrow in the normal way, and the
NYLON voice without a switch setting (both arrows showing), changing the display as below:

3. PROGRAMMING THE MS60/50
be heard, whereas the GRAND piano will not play as this has a high velocity setting. Playing hard on
the keyboard (high velocity) will produce both the GRAND piano and the NYLON guitar voices,
The final sound will depend on the type of voice, the harmonic content etc., etc. Aninteresting effect
can be obtamed by programming two voices in the same keyboard area with opposing dynamic
characteristics. For example, try programming the GRAND and DRAWBARS voices; set the
threshold value to 90, then set the dynamics of the GRAND piano and DRAWBARS voices to low
velocity (<) and high velocity (>) respectively. Playing hard on the keyboard will play the
DRAWBARS organ sound whereas playing softer will produce the GRAND piano voice.
Once all the voices and parameters have been set up, you can memorize the Program by pressing
SAVE/NAME and then giving a name of your choice to the Program in the normal way (see point
4 - HOW TO SELECT A REGISTRATION on page 2.21. which is identical).
HOW TO WRITE A PROGRAM
Try setting up the following Program from the beginning. It contains four voices: À string voice
(Tremolos), used as a background in the two lower octaves, Brass in the bottom two octaves of the
right hand section and two voices, a synth effect (Icepad) and Blowsax in the top octave.
Set the keyboard SPLIT to C* if not already so (see page 2.7). Now proceed as follows:
1. Press EDIT. The EDIT MENU will show in the display.
2, Press F2 (PROGRAM). The EDIT PROGRAM menu will appear on the display.
3. The name of the Program will be flashing in the top line and for the time being this can be ignored.
4. Select the mode to be used, in this case PATCH, by pressing FS.
5. Select the voices to be used as follows:
a. Selectthe voice to be used in the first two left hand octaves by pressing F1. Then select the voice
(TREMOLOS) either with the VALUE -# keys or by means of the VOICE BANK keys by
directly pressing first STRINGS and then the key numbered 5 in the bottom line of keys.
b. Select the voice to be used in the first two right hand octaves by pressing F2. Then select
the voice (BRASS) in the usual way (BRASS then key 6).
C. Select the first voice to be used in the top right hand octave by pressing F3. Then select
the voice (ICEPAD) in the usual way (SYNT/FM then key 1).
d. Select the second voice to be used in the top right hand octave by pressing F4. Then select
the voice (BLOWSAX) in the usual way (SAX then key 1).
М.В - When selecting the voices, check that both the 1/2 * and USER VOICE key leds are OFF”,
as in this case the Voices selected will all he from BANK 1.
6. Adjust the Volume of the voices as follows:
a. Adjust the TREMOLOS volume by pressing first F5 and then pressing the VALUE -/+
keys to set a value of 35.
b. Adjust the BRASS volume by pressing first F6 and then pressing the VALUE -/+ keys

to set a value of 63.
¢. Adjust the ICEPAD volume by pressing first F7 and then pressing the VALUE -/+ keys
to set a value of 63.
а. Adjustthe BLOWSAX volume by pressing first F8 and then pressing the VALUE -/+ keys
to set a value of 63
Now set the Shift value of cach voice as follows:
a. Adjustthe TREMOLOS shiftby pressing first FS twice (value will flash) and then pressing
the VALUE -/+ keys to set a value of +24 (two octaves higher).
b. Adjust the shaft values of the other three voices to zero (*- -”) by pressing first F6, F7
and F8 to select the relative part and then the two VALUE -/+ keys simultaneously
to show *- -7. In this way no shift (Transposition) is set for these voices.
Set all the Detune values to zero (*- -7) by first pressing FS to F8 with Shift showing in these
positions, then bring the value to show *- — by thc above means.
At this point you can assign the keyboard area of each voice by pressing PAGE >> to open the
relative display (explained in full on page 3.16).
Set the keyboard areas of each voice as follows:
a. Assign the area in which the TREMOLOS will be played by first pressing F5. The bottom note
position will flash and at this point you can enter this number by pressing the bottom C on the
keyboard, corresponding to note C”, The top note position in this area (flashing) can now be
defined by pressing the relative key, in this case the second B from the bottom, corresponding
to notc B>. In this way the TREMOLOS voice will play in the two lower octaves of the keyboard
and the display will show: C2 - B3. The bottom note position of the second voice will now begin
to flash, showing that the next key that you press will be assigned to that position.
b. Now assign the area played with the BRASS voice in the same way as above. In this case the
two lower octaves of the right hand section must be assigned by first pressing the third C from
the left, corresponding to C* and then the fourth B from the bottom which corresponds to note
number B°.
с. Nowassignthearca played withthe ICEPAD and BLOWSAX voicesinthe same way as above.
As these voices are superimposed in the same area of the keyboard, the operation is identical
in both cases. In this case the top octave of the nght hand section must be assigned to both voices
by first pressing the second C from the from the top of the keyboard, corresponding to C° and
then the top C which corresponds to note number C7.
No Key Dynamics are required, therefore press PAGE >> to open the KEY VELOCITY SWITCH
THRESHOLD page and set all sections to '< > by pressing both VALUE + keys.
Press PAGE << to return to the EDIT PROGRAM menu and then press F8 to set the EFFECTS for
each voice.
No effects are required in this Program, therefore set all the Rev, Chor. and Rotor effects to ‘- —”.
At this point all that remains is to memorize the Program with a name of your choice with the same
procedure used for saving a Registration, fully explained in point 4 on page 2.21. After pressing F8
(SAVE), the name given to the Program will be shown 1n the top right hand corner of the display.

HOW TO COMPOSE A PATTERN USING A COMPUTER OR SEQUENCER
You can compose à Pattern on the MS60/50 not only by playing it directly on the keyboard, but also

a. Connect a MIDE Cabs trom the MID OUT socket of the computer (or sequencer) to the MIDI

b. Activate the MIDI Clock In ot the M$60/50. To do this, press EDIT, Fi (MIDI), F6 (CLOCK),
F4 (Acuve).
¢. Setthe MIDI Clock Out of the computer (or sequencer) in the active mode,
These operations are very important because they assure that the Master Clock is that of the computer (or
sequencer).
Suppose you already have a sequence programmed over 4 bars, which refer to the Arrangement A
of the Style thal you want to programme. Furthermore, suppose that you have programmed [or
Arrangement À, ail five tracks available for the Pattern, that 1s:
DRUMS, BASS, CHORD 1, CHORD 2 and CHORD 3.
The MIDI transmission channels, set for the five tracks, in the computer (or sequencer), must
correspond cxactly with those of the parts set for reception in the MS60/50.
If no modifications have been made to the MIDI channels of the MS60/50, you should assign the
following transmission channels to the five tracks of the Arrangement:

3. PROGRAMMING THE MS60/50
DRUM CH. 10
BASS CH. 3
CHORD | CH. 4
CHORD 2 CH.5
CHORD3 CH.6
At this point, in order to have a standard reference [or the octaves of the sounds, open the OCTAVE
HOLD menu by means of the relative key. Now set all the sections of the Orchestral Accompaniment
(Bass, Chord 1, Chord 2 and Chord 3) to 8, by means of the function keys F1, F2, F3 and F4, This
operation is very important for sequences that respect the General MIDI sound format; in factby setting
the four orchestral sections to 8, the relative sounds will be allocated to the octave set by General MIDI
standards.
Having carried oul these operations, that arc valid for the complete Style, you arc ready to record
Arrangement A. This is the procedure that you must follow:
1. Open the EDIT PATTERN menu by pressmg F4.
2. Select an empty Pattern or one that you want to complete with the VALUE + keys.
3. Enter the RECORD mode by pressing F6.
4. Select the part of the style that you want to record. In this case press F3, as you want to compose
the Arrangement.
Set the number of bars in the Arrangement by pressing F7 and then the VALUE -/+ keys.
Set in which type of key you want to record the Arrangement (Major, Minor or Seventh) by first
pressing F6 and then making the selection with the VALUE -# keys.
7. If not done already, set the METRONOME to “On” with the F8 key.
8. Set all the MIDI parameters of the computer (or sequencer) as explained above.
9. Make the computer (or sequencer) recycle automatically, five times in the 4 bars, as the MIDI
channels to record are five.
10. Press START on the computer (or sequencer).
>
At this point if all the operations have been carried out correctly, the MS60/50's clock should activate
automatically and therefore begin the recording.
The first track that 1s recorded is the Drums, then Bass, Chord 1, Chord 2 and Chord 3. You will hear
the tracks being superimposed on each other each time the computer {or sequencer) recycles; the
display on the MS60/50 wil show the part that is being recorded each time. Once the Chord 3 track
has been recorded the Start of the MS60/50 will be turned “Off” automatically. This indicates that
the recording of Arrangement A is completed and that you can record another part of the Style.
М.В, - In the whole operation it is most important to remember the following points:
1. The Metronome function must be ‘On’, otherwise the START of the MS60/50 will turn ‘Off
at the end of each track.
2. It is not important to set the quantize value as with this system, the value will always be set
automatically to 96.
This system can also be used for ‘Real Time’ recordings of the Styles of other keyboards into the Pattern of
the MS60/50.
If you do this, the only inconvenience will be with the Endings and Fill Ins. which, in many keyboards, cannot
be activated if at least one bar of rhythm backing has not already been played. Fortunately the Pattern in the
MS60/50 15 able to resolve this inconvenience also. In fact you just have to sct the Metronome function to
"Off", press the FADE OUT key and keep this pressed and then start the Style that you want to copy.
By doing this, the MS60/50 wilt not take into consideration the first bar and therefore you can record an
ENDING or FILL IN without running into any problems.
