The connectors you use will depend on whether the input/
output signals are analog or digital.
• Analog input:
Connect your device to the [INPUT] jacks ([).
• Digital input:
Connect your device to the [AES/EBU IN] jack (X).
• Analog output:
Connect your device to the [OUTPUT] jacks (Y).
• Digital output:
Connect your device to the [AES/EBU OUT] jack (W).
NOTE: If you are inputting/outputting analog signals, you must
set the [INPUT –10 dBu/+4 dBu] switch (\) and the [OUTPUT
–10dBu/+4dBu] switch (Z) appropriately for the signal level of
the connected devices.
You must turn off the power of all devices before you
make connections.

Setting the tempo
Some effects have a Tempo parameter. You can edit
the Tempo parameter in any of the following five
ways.
• Use the [▲ INC]/[▼ DEC] button (G)
This is the same method as when editing other
parameters.
• Use the [TAP] button (N)
When you press the [TAP] button (N) two or
more times, the average interval will be calculated
and set as the Tempo value. If you want to use this
method, set “TEMPO SOURCE” (page 23) to
specify “TAP” as the synchronization source.
• Use the foot switch
When you press the foot switch (optional) two or
more times, the average interval will be calculated and set as the Tempo value. If you want to
use this method, use the following procedure.
1. Connect an optional foot switch (e.g., FC5) to
the [FOOT SW] jack (O).
2. Set the “TEMPO SOURCE” setting (page 23)
to specify “TAP” as the synchronization source.
• Use MIDI clock
The interval of MIDI Clock messages can be used
to set the Tempo value. If you want to use this
method, set “TEMPO SOURCE” (page 23) to
specify “MIDI” as the synchronization source.
• Use MIDI control changes
The value specified by a MIDI Control Change
message can be used to set the Tempo value. By
using this method you can control the SPX2000’s
Tempo value from a connected external MIDI
device.

SPX2000—Owner’s Manual
Effects and tempo synchronization
Some of the SPX2000’s effects allow you to synchronize the effect with the tempo. There are two such types of effect; delaytype effects and modulation-type effects. For delay-type effects, the delay time will change according to the tempo. For modulation-type effects, the frequency of the modulation signal will change according to the tempo.
• Parameters related to tempo synchronization
The following five parameters are related to tempo synchronization.
1) SYNC
2) NOTE
3) TEMPO
4) DELAY
5) FREQ.
Operation
SYNC: ........................................ This is the on/off switch for tempo synchronization.
NOTE and TEMPO: ................. These are the basic parameters for tempo synchronization.
DELAY and FREQ.:................... DELAY is the delay time, and FREQ. is the frequency of the modulation signal. These
directly affect the way in which the effect sound will change. DELAY is relevant only
for delay-type effects, and FREQ. is relevant only for modulation-type effects.
• How the parameters are related
Tempo synchronization uses TEMPO and NOTE to calculate a value that will be the basis for the tempo, and continues
making adjustments so that this tempo basis stays essentially the same as the DELAY (or FREQ.). This means that when
TEMPO, NOTE, and DELAY (or FREQ.) are synchronized, and you change any of these values, the other parameters will
be re-set in order to maintain the correct relationship. The parameters that are re-set and the calculation method(*a) used
are as follows.
If you turn SYNC on → NOTE will be set
If you edit DELAY (or FREQ.) → NOTE will be set
In this case, the NOTE value is calculated as follows.
NOTE = DELAY (or FREQ.)/(4 x (60/TEMPO))
If you edit NOTE → DELAY (or FREQ.) will be set
In this case, the DELAY (or FREQ.) value is calculated as follows.
DELAY (or FREQ.) = NOTE x 4 x (60/TEMPO)
If you edit TEMPO → DELAY (or FREQ.) will be set
In this case, the DELAY (or FREQ.) value is calculated as follows.
DELAY (or FREQ.) = original DELAY (or FREQ.) x (previous TEMPO/new TEMPO)
Example 1:
When SYNC=ON, DELAY=250 ms, TEMPO=120, you change NOTE from 8th note to quarter note
DELAY= new NOTE x 4 x (60/TEMPO)
= (1/4) x 4 x (60/120)
= 0.5 (sec)
= 500 ms
Thus, the DELAY will change from 250 ms to 500 ms.
Example 2:
When SYNC=ON, DELAY=250 ms, NOTE=8th note, you change TEMPO from 120 to 121
DELAY= original DELAY x (previous TEMPO/new TEMPO)
= 250 x (120/121)
= 247.9 (ms)
Thus, the TEMPO will change from 250 ms to 247.9 ms.
*a Rounded values are used for the calculation results.
• Ranges of the NOTE and TEMPO values
The ranges of the NOTE and TEMPO values are limited by the ranges of the DELAY or FREQ. values. You cannot set
NOTE or TEMPO values that would cause DELAY or FREQ. to exceed their maximum possible values when synchronized
to tempo. This limitation also applies even when SYNC is OFF.
• Special characteristics of the TEMPO parameter
The TEMPO parameter has the following characteristics that are unlike other parameters.
• It is a common value shared by all effects
• It cannot be stored/recalled (the value is not saved)
This means that the TEMPO value may not necessarily be the same when an effect is recalled as when that effect was
stored. Here is an example.
Store the effect: TEMPO=120 → Change TEMPO to 60 → Recall the effect: TEMPO=60
Normally when you change the TEMPO, the DELAY (or FREQ.) will be re-set accordingly. However if the DELAY (or
FREQ.) were changed, the effect would sound differently when recalled than when it was stored. To prevent the effect from
changing in this way between store and recall, the SPX2000 does not update the DELAY (or FREQ.) value when an effect is
recalled, even if the TEMPO is no longer the same as when that effect was stored.

Internal clock (88.2 kHz)
Internal clock (96 kHz)
NOTES:
• The SPX2000 extracts the sampling frequency from the
clock frequency. This means that the word clock frequency =
the sampling frequency.
• When INT44.1 kHz–INT 96 kHz is selected, noise may occur
or the output may be muted if the word clock and the input
signal cannot be synchronized correctly
The signal used to synchronize digital audio signal
processing is called “word clock.”
When two or more digital devices are connected in
order to send and receive digital audio signals, each
digital device must process the signal at the same
timing. Even if all connected devices are set to the
same clock frequency, the signals will not be transmitted and received correctly if the processing timing does not match, or you may hear noise.
In order for digital audio signals to be synchronized, one digital device must transmit the clock
(synchronization data), and the other devices must
be set to receive this clock. In such a setup, the
device that supplies the synchronization reference
clock is called the “CLOCK MASTER,” and the
receiving devices are called “CLOCK SLAVES.”
To use the SPX2000 as the clock master, set the
“CLOCK SOURCE” function (page 18) to either
INT96kHz, INT88.2kHz, INT48kHz, or INT44.1.
To use the SPX2000 as a clock slave, use either of
the following two methods.
1 Set the “CLOCK SOURCE” function
(page 18) to AES/EBU, and connect the
AES/EBU format compatible device supplying the clock data to the [AES/EBU IN] jack
(X).
2 Set the “CLOCK SOURCE” function
(page 18) to WORD CLOCK, and connect
the device supplying the clock to the
[WORD CLOCK IN] jack (V). When doing
so, the device supplying the clock must be
connected one-to-one with the SPX2000.

TABLE A: PGM108=--TABLE A: PGM109=U05
When the SPX2000 receives the Table A:107 or 109 program
change messages, it will recall the corresponding effect.
However, nothing will be recalled when the Table A:108
message is received.
(*) This abbreviation indicates the bank and effect number; e.g.,
P01 is effect number 01 of the PRESET bank, C10 is effect
number 10 of the CLASSIC bank, and U05 is effect number 5

Reverb
These effects add reverberation. Reverberation varies in a complex way according to factors such as the size of the room and
the material of the walls. You can use this type of effect to simulate these changes, producing a wide range of reverberation.
Reverberation can be divided into two categories of sound; early reflections and the subsequent reverberation. Early reflections are the sounds that reach your ear after being reflected only once from the walls or ceiling. The subsequent reverberation is the “wash” of sound that reaches your ear after reflecting multiple times from the walls and ceiling. The SPX2000
provides two types of reverb; those that allow you to independently control the early reflections and the reverberation, and
those that control these two as a single unit.
The SPX2000 also provides gated reverbs. These effects pass the signal through a gate so that reverb is added only while the
gate is open. One way to use these effects is to add only reverb that exceeds a specified level, and close the gate to cut the
slowly decaying reverberation.
The differences between the various types of reverb are as follows.

Explanation
Time over which the reverberation will decay and disappear.
Length of the high-frequency or low-frequency reverberation. These times are specified as a proportion of the REV TIME. If this value is set to 1.0, the length will be the same as REV TIME.
You can use these values to simulate the absorptiveness of the walls and ceiling. HI.RATIO indicates the decay of the high-frequency range, and LO.RATIO indicates the decay of the low-frequency range.
Delay of the reflections relative to the original sound.
Density and left/right diffusion of the reverberation. Increasing this value will increase the density,
and produce a stronger sense of spaciousness.
Size of the reverberant space. Increasing this value simulates a larger space. You can use this to simulate the absorptiveness of the walls and ceiling. Changing this value will change the REV TIME
value.

Balance between the original sound and effect sound. At a setting of 0% only the original sound

Output level after the original sound and effect sound have been mixed. Decrease this value if you
want to lower the output. At a setting of 0% there will be no output.
A filter that cuts the low-frequency portion of the effect. Frequency components lower than the
frequency specified here will be cut. With a setting of Thru this filter will do nothing. This filter
does not affect the original sound.
A filter that cuts the high-frequency portion of the effect. Frequency components above the frequency specified here will be cut. With a setting of Thru this filter will do nothing. This filter does
not affect the original sound.
The frequency that will be the basis for the LO.RATIO (Basic parameter). Frequencies lower than
the value specified here will be affected by LO.RATIO.
Shapes the envelope of the reverberation. This changes the way in which the reverberation decays.

sound exceeds this value, and will remain open as long as the level remains above this value.
The attack time of the gate. This is the time from when the gate begins to open until it is completely open. Higher settings of this value will make the gate open more slowly; i.e., the volume that
passes through the gate will rise more slowly. With a setting of 0 ms, the gate will open completely
the moment the original sound reaches the GATE LVL.
The minimum time that the gate remains open. Even when the original sound falls below the
GATE LVL, the gate will remain open for the time specified by this value.
The decay time of the gate. This is the time from when the gate begins to close until it is completely
closed. Higher settings of this value will make the gate close more slowly; i.e., the volume that
passes through the gate will decrease more slowly.

■Basic parameters
What is a Gate?
A “gate” is a device or circuit that passes or blocks a signal. Gates are provided on the SPX2000’s Reverb (PRESET bank) and Reverb & Gate (CLASSIC bank) effects, and can be used to control the reverberation.
For example you can use a gate to apply reverberation only to signals that exceed a specified level, or to suddenly
cut the decaying “tail” of the reverberation so that the reverberation ends suddenly.
The various gate-related parameters are explained below.
• Threshold Level
This is the signal level at which the gate will open. The
gate will open when the input signal exceeds this level,
and will remain open as long as the signal remains above
this level.
On the SPX2000, this is controlled by parameters such
as GATE LVL, TRG.LVL.

(Decay time)
Time
• Attack Time/Release Time (Decay Time)
To prevent sudden “jumps” in the sound when the input signal exceeds or falls below the threshold level, you
can make the gate open or close gradually over a specified length of time. The time from when the gate begins
to open until it opens completely is called the Attack Time, and the time from when it begins to close until it
closes completely is called the Release Time (or Decay Time).
On the SPX2000, the Attack Time is controlled by parameters such as ATTACK, and the Release Time is controlled by parameters such as DECAY, RELEASE.
• Hold Time
This is the time that the gate will remain open after the signal falls below the threshold level.
If the level of the signal changes irregularly, the gate will open and close at short intervals. This will cause the
sound to be alternately interrupted and passed, making it sound unsteady and jumpy.
In such cases, you can adjust the Hold Time so that the gate will remain open for a time even after the signal
falls below the threshold level; this will prevent the gate from opening and closing so frequently. However, be
aware that if you set the Hold Time longer than necessary, the gate will remain open all the time, and will
therefore have no effect on the sound.
On the SPX2000, the Hold Time is controlled by the HOLD parameter.

SPX2000—Owner’s Manual
Early Reflection
These effects add early reflections. Early reflections are the sounds that reach your ear after being reflected only once from the
walls or ceiling. In contrast, the “wash” of sound that reaches your ear after reflecting multiple times from the walls and ceiling is called “subsequent reverberation.” In nature, early reflections will be followed by subsequent reverberation, but the
Early Reflection effects omit this, producing a tighter sound. These effects can produce interesting results when applied to
drums, percussion, or guitar.
The differences between the effects are summarized below.

Explanation
The pattern of early reflections; this determines the basic character of the effect. The characteristics
of the early reflections will depend on the type you select here.
Size of the reverberant space. Increasing this value simulates a larger space. You can use this to simulate the absorptiveness of the walls and ceiling.
Decay characteristics of the early reflections. Increasing this value will reduce the decay, causing the
repeats to continue. You can use this to simulate the absorptiveness of the walls and ceiling.
Delay of the early reflections relative to the original sound.
Diffusion of the sound to left and right. Increasing this value will make the reverberation more
spaciousness.
Density of the early reflections. Increasing this value will make the reverberation smoother. You
can create unique effects by lowering this value.
*a. For Early Reflection effects, choose from S-Hall, L-Hall, Random, Revers, Plate, and Spring.
For Gate Reverb and Reverse Gate effects, choose from Type-A and Type-B.

A filter that cuts the low-frequency portion of the effect. Frequency components lower than the
frequency specified here will be cut. With a setting of Thru this filter will do nothing. This filter
does not affect the original sound.
A filter that cuts the high-frequency portion of the effect. Frequency components above the frequency specified here will be cut. With a setting of Thru this filter will do nothing. This filter does
not affect the original sound.
Amount of feedback for the early reflections. This indicates the ratio by which the level is reduced for
each repetition of the effect. For example with a setting of +50, the level of the reflections will decay
to 50% → 25% → 12.5% as they are repeated. Negative (–) values invert the phase of the feedback.
Amount of feedback for the high-frequency portion of the reflections. This is specified as a proportion of FB.GAIN. If this value is 0.1, the feedback amount will be 1/10th of FB.GAIN; if this value is
1.0, the feedback amount will be the same as FB.GAIN.

Delay added to the feedback. FB.DLYL indicates the L channel delay, and FB.DLYR indicates the R
channel delay. The delay from the original sound to the first delay sound is DELAY L or DELAY R;
the delay of the subsequently repeated sound will be DELAYL+FB.DLYL or DELAY R+FB.DLYR.
Amount of feedback for the delay sounds. This indicates the ratio by which the level is reduced
when repeating the effect. For example with a setting of +50, the level of the delay sound will decay
to 50% → 25% → 12.5% as it is repeated. Negative (–) values invert the phase of the feedback.
FB.G L indicates the feedback amount for the L channel, and FB.G R for the R channel.
Amount of feedback from the L channel to the R channel. Negative (–) values invert the phase of
the feedback.
Amount of feedback from the R channel to the L channel. Negative (–) values invert the phase of
the feedback.
Amount of feedback for the high-frequency portion of the delay sound. This is specified as a proportion of FB.G. If this value is 0.1, the high-frequency feedback amount for the L channel will be
1/10th of FB.G L, and the high-frequency feedback amount for the R channel will be 1/10th of
FB.G R. If this value is 1.0, the feedback amount will be the same as FB.G L/FB.G R.
NOTE: If the FB.G L, FB.G R, L->R FBG, or R->L FBG values are raised excessively, oscillation will occur, and the signal will not decay.
Please use caution.

Modulation
These effects modulate the input signal in various ways. Using one signal to vary another signal is called “modulation.” The
signal that is being varied is called the “carrier,” and the signal that is creating the modulation is called the “modulator.” Modulation-type effects can vary the volume, the pitch, or the delay time of the effect sound to produce “swooshing” or “twisting”
sounds (flanger, phaser) or cyclic changes in volume (tremolo) or position (auto pan). The SPX2000 can use the signal of an
oscillator as the modulator to apply cyclic change, or use the input signal itself or MIDI messages to apply change.

Flanger (PRESET bank)
These effects add a “swooshing” character that is reminiscent of a jet
airplane taking off and landing.
For delay-type effects, the delay time relative to the original sound does
not change; however for a flanger, the delay time is modulated cyclically. It is this change in the delay time that produces the “swooshing”
character of a flanger.
Each aspect of the sound is controlled by the following effect parameters.
Modulation signal: FREQ., DEPTH, WAVE
Effect sound: MOD.DLY, FB.GAIN

Explanation
Source of the modulating signal. If you select INPUT, the effect sound will change according to the
input signal. If you select MIDI, the modulated sound will change according to the received MIDI messages (velocity). If you want the effect to vary according to your keyboard performance, select MIDI.
The sensitivity to SOURCE. Higher settings of this value will cause the phase shift frequency to follow
the SOURCE more faithfully. With lower settings, the phase shift frequency will follow more loosely.
Offset value of the phase shift frequency. This affects the basic frequency when a control signal is
not being received.
Amount of feedback for the effect sound. Raising this value will increase the amount of feedback,
emphasizing the modulation. Negative (–) settings will invert the phase of the feedback.
Number of stages in the phase shift circuitry. Raising this value will produce a more complex sense
of modulation.

Explanation
Balance between the original sound and effect sound. At a setting of 0% only the original sound
will be output; at a setting of 100% only the effect sound will be output.
Output level after the original sound and effect sound have been mixed.
Decrease this value if you want to lower the output. At a setting of 0% there will be no output.
Direction in which the phase-shifted frequency will move in response to the SOURCE signal.
Decay time of the phaser. This indicates the time from when the SOURCE signal is received and the
phaser moves until it returns to its original position. Higher settings of this parameter will make
the phase shift frequency return more slowly.
Gain of the low shelving filter. This adjusts the volume of the low-frequency region. Positive (+)
settings will boost the low-frequency region, and negative (–) settings will attenuate it.
Frequency of the low shelving filter. The LSH G gain applies to the frequency region below this setting.
Gain of the high shelving filter. This adjusts the volume of the high-frequency region. Positive (+)
settings will boost the high-frequency region, and negative (–) settings will attenuate it.
Frequency of the high shelving filter. The HSH G gain applies to the frequency region above this
setting.

Pitch Change
This effect changes the pitch. When an audio signal such as music is played back at a higher speed, its pitch will be higher.
Conversely if the audio is played back at a lower speed, its pitch will be lower. This effect simulates this in a more sophisticated way. Some of these effects can add two effect sounds at different pitches, or synchronize the effect sound to the tempo.

Pitch Change A, D (CLASSIC bank)
These are pitch change effects based on earlier models of the SPX series. They are equivalent to the High Quality Pitch effects
of the PRESET bank, but have a simpler parameter structure than the PRESET bank effects. Since MIDI note-on messages
can be used to change the pitch, you can connect a MIDI keyboard and change the pitch according to your accompaniment.
Each aspect of the sound is controlled by the following effect parameters.
Effect sound: PITCH, FINE, DELAY, F.B.GAIN
MIDI control: BASE KEY
Output level: OUT LVL, MIX BAL.

Base key for when receiving MIDI note-on messages. When a MIDI Note-on message with note
number C1 or higher is received, its distance from this setting will be used to update the PITCH
value. For example if you set this parameter as C4, a received note-on message of C3 will cause
PITCH to be set to –12, making the effect sound one octave lower than the original pitch. If you set
this parameter as C2, a received note-on message of D2 will cause PITCH to be set to +2, making
the effect sound two semitones higher than the original pitch. If this parameter is OFF, MIDI noteon messages will not be received.
Output level after the original sound and effect sound have been mixed.
Decrease this value if you want to lower the output. At a setting of 0% there will be no output.

The pattern of early reflections; this determines the basic character of the effect. The characteristics
of the early reflections will depend on the type you select here.
Size of the reflective space. Increasing this value simulates a larger space. You can use this to simulate the absorptiveness of the walls and ceiling.
Decay characteristics of the early reflections. Increasing this value will reduce the decay, causing the
repeats to continue. You can use this to simulate the absorptiveness of the walls and ceiling.
Delay of the early reflections relative to the original sound.
Diffusion of the sound to left and right. Increasing this value will make the reflections more spaciousness.
Density of the early reflections. Increasing this value will make the sound smoother. You can create
unique effects by lowering this value.
Delay relative to the original sound. DELAY L is the L channel delay, and DELAY R is the R channel
delay.
Delay added when the signal is fed back. The delay from the original sound to the first delay is set
by the DELAY L and DELAY R values, but the delay of subsequent repeats will be each DELAY +
FB.DLY.
Amount of feedback for the delay sound. This indicates the ratio by which the level is reduced for
each repetition of the effect. For example with a setting of +50, the level of the delay will decay to
50% → 25% → 12.5% as it is repeated. Negative (–) values invert the phase of the feedback.
Amount of feedback for the high-frequency portion of the delay. This is specified as a proportion
of FB.GAIN. If this value is 0.1, the feedback amount will be 1/10th of FB.GAIN; if this value is 1.0,
the feedback amount will be the same as FB.GAIN.

Density of the reverberation. Increasing this value will make the reverberation smoother. You can
create unique effects by lowering this value.
Delay relative to the original sound. DELAY L is the L channel delay, and DELAY R is the R channel
delay.
Delay added when the signal is fed back. The delay from the original sound to the first delay is set by
the DELAY L and DELAY R values, but the delay of subsequent repeats will be each DELAY + FB.DLY.
Amount of feedback for the delay sound. This indicates the ratio by which the level is reduced for
each repetition of the effect. For example with a setting of +50, the level of the delay will decay to
50% → 25% → 12.5% as it is repeated. Negative (–) values invert the phase of the feedback.
Amount of feedback for the high-frequency portion of the delay. This is specified as a proportion
of FB.GAIN. If this value is 0.1, the feedback amount will be 1/10th of FB.GAIN; if this value is 1.0,
the feedback amount will be the same as FB.GAIN.

A filter that cuts the high-frequency portion of the effect. Frequency components above the frequency specified here will be cut. With a setting of Thru this filter will do nothing. This filter does
not affect the original sound.
(Delay + Reverb only) Balance between the delay and reverb. A setting of 0% outputs only the
delay; a setting of 100% outputs only the reverb.
(Delay → Reverb only) Amount of reverb. Raising this value will strengthen the reverb effect. At a
setting of 0% only delay will be heard.
Switches tempo synchronization on/off. If this is ON, the delays will synchronize to the tempo synchronization source specified by “TEMPO SOURCE” (page 23). Each NOTE value will be set to the
synchronized tempo value.
These parameters are used for tempo synchronization. If SYNC is ON, each DELAY value will be
set according to the corresponding NOTE value and TEMPO. If SYNC is OFF, this value is ignored.
This parameter is used for tempo synchronization. If SYNC is ON, the various DELAY values will
be set according to this value and the corresponding NOTE values. If SYNC is OFF, this value is
ignored.

Explanation
MANUAL, AUTO
Recording method. Choose MANUAL (manual) or AUTO (automatic).
Delay from when recording is triggered until recording actually begins.
When REC MODE is MANUAL, press the [▼ DEC] button (G) to enter record-ready mode; then
press the [▲ INC] button (G) to begin recording.
Playback will continue while you press the [▲ INC] or [▼ DEC] button (G).

Amount of pitch change for the playback, in units of one cent (1/100th of a semitone). Positive (+)
settings will make the playback pitch higher than the original pitch, and negative (–) settings will
lower it.
This specifies the base key for incoming MIDI note-on messages. When a note-on message is
received, the PITCH value will be set by the difference between this setting and the value of the
note-on. For example if you set BASE KEY as C4, a received note-on message of C3 will cause
PITCH to be set to –12, making the sample play one octave lower than the original pitch. If you set
this parameter as C2, a received note-on message of D2 will cause PITCH to be set to +2, making
the sample play two semitones higher than the original pitch. If this parameter is OFF, MIDI noteon messages will not be received.
Output level after the original sound and effect sound have been mixed. Decrease this value if you

above that level will be compressed by this ratio.
Compressor attack time. This is the time from when the input signal level exceeds CMP.THRE
until the maximum compression is reached.
You can use this when you want to retain the attacks of the original signal.

Balance between the original sound and effect sound. At a setting of 0% only the original sound
will be output; at a setting of 100% only the effect sound will be output.
Compressor knee. If this is set to 0, compression will begin immediately when the input signal
exceeds CMP.THRE; i.e., the level will begin changing suddenly. With a setting of 1 or above, compression will begin before the point at which the signal exceeds CMP.THRE, so that the compression produces a smoother change in level. This will produce a less obtrusive transition for the level
change produced by the compressor.
Lookup delay. Normally you will leave this at 0.0 ms. If you want the input signal to be read ahead
of time so that the level can be controlled more quickly, set this to a value of 0.1 ms or greater; the
compressor, expander, and limiter will begin functioning ahead of the input signal.
Compressor bypass. If this is ON, the compressor will be bypassed, and will not do anything.
Crossover frequency between the low and mid ranges. This parameter specifies the frequency that
will be the boundary between the low-frequency and mid-frequency ranges.
Crossover frequency between the mid and high ranges. This parameter specifies the frequency that
will be the boundary between the mid-frequency and high-frequency ranges.
Attenuation of the filter that divides the frequency bands. –12 dB produces greater attenuation
than –6 dB, dividing the frequency bands more sharply.
Expander bypass. If this is ON, the expander will be bypassed, and will not do anything.
Limiter bypass. If this is ON, the limiter will be bypassed, and will not do anything.
Limiter knee. If this is set to 0, limiting will begin immediately when the input signal exceeds
LIM.THRE; i.e., the level will begin changing suddenly. With a setting of 1 or above, limiting will
begin before the point at which the signal exceeds LIM.THRE, so that the limiting produces a
smoother change in level. This will produce a less obtrusive transition for the level change produced by the limiter.
These are Solo settings. Only the bands that are turned ON will be output. If all are ON or if all are
OFF, all bands will be output.

MIDI
You can use MIDI to remotely control the SPX2000. This chapter explains how to make
preparations for using MIDI, what you can do using MIDI, and the MIDI data format.
Preparations for using
MIDI
What you can do using
MIDI
In order to use the SPX2000’s MIDI functionality, you
must make the following preparations.
On the SPX2000 you can use MIDI to do the following six
things.
1 Connect your MIDI device
• Recall effects
You can remotely select/recall effects from a MIDI device
connected to the [MIDI IN] connector (T) or [TO
HOST USB] connector (U).
In order to do this, you must first create a MIDI program change table on the SPX2000. For details, refer to
“Editing the MIDI program change table” (page 22).
Connect your device using either of the following connectors.
• [MIDI IN] connector (T) and [MIDI OUT/THRU]
connector (S)
• [TO HOST USB] connector (U)
2 If you are using the [MIDI OUT/THRU] connector, set it to “MIDI OUT” (page 21)
3 Select the MIDI port that you want to use
Use the Utility setting “MIDI PORT GENERAL” to
make this selection (page 21).
4 Select the MIDI channel that you want to use
(page 21).
5 Enable MIDI message reception (page 23)
MIDI messages used:
Control change (Bank select) + Program change
• Control parameters
You can control the SPX2000’s effect parameters from a
MIDI device connected to the [MIDI IN] connector
(T) or [TO HOST USB] connector (U).
The control method and content will depend on the
MIDI messages you use.
MIDI messages used:
Note on/off, Control change, Parameter change
• Bulk dump SPX2000 internal data
You can transmit the SPX2000’s data to a MIDI device
connected to the [MIDI OUT/THRU] connector (S) or
[TO HOST USB] connector (U) (page 23). Conversely,
the SPX2000 can receive data from a MIDI device connected to the [MIDI IN] connector to overwrite the
SPX2000’s internal data.
MIDI messages used: Bulk dump
• Synchronize with another MIDI device
The SPX2000 can synchronize to MIDI Clock messages
received from a MIDI device connected to the [MIDI
IN] connector (T) or [TO HOST USB] connector (U).
In order to do this, you must set the tempo synchronization source to “MIDI CLOCK” (page 23).
MIDI messages used: MIDI clock
• Check the MIDI connection status
The SPX2000 can check whether there is a correctly
functioning connection with a MIDI device connected
to the [MIDI IN] connector (T), [MIDI OUT/THRU]
connector (S), or [TO HOST USB] connector (U).
MIDI messages used: Active sensing
• Initialize MIDI communication
You can initialize MIDI communication, for example if a
communication error has occurred.
MIDI messages used: Reset

■ 2.8.2.13 Parameter change (Function call : Event
Effect)
When the SPX2000 receives this message while a freeze-type effect is
recalled, it will perform the same operation as if the RECORD parameter
or PLAY parameter is selected and the [▼ DEC] button pressed. The contents of the function will determine whether the RECORD parameter or
the PLAY parameter is selected.
EOX
For the function and number, refer to the table in “2.8.2.14 Parameter
change (Function call: attribute (Protect)).”
■ 2.8.2.16 Parameter change (Function call: LCD Back
Color)
When the SPX2000 receives this message, it will change the display
background color of the specified effect, and will then use this message
to transmit the state following the change. At this time, the device
number will be the MIDI channel of the SPX2000. If the MIDI channel
is OMNI, the device number will be 1.

■ 2.8.2.18 Parameter change (Remote Meter)
When the SPX2000 receives a Parameter Request (Remote Meter) message, it will transmit this message. The content is data for the specified
meter. This is transmitted at 50 msec intervals for ten seconds. If you
want meter data to continue being transmitted, you must transmit a
Request message at intervals of less than ten seconds. However if the port
is being used for other communication, transmission of meter data may
be interrupted.
The device number used when transmitting meter data will be the MIDI
channel of the SPX2000. If the MIDI channel is OMNI, the device number will be 1.
When the SPX2000 receives a Request message with an Address UL =
0x7F, transmission of all meter data will be halted immediately. Transmission will also stop if the power is turned off and on again while transmitting meter data, or if the MIDI port setting is changed.

Error message list
Error message
Message content/Action
Low Battery!
The internal backup battery has run down.
If the battery goes dead, the internal data will be lost. Press any button to cancel the error message. Then immediately
use the “BULK OUT (ALL)” function (page 23) to save the internal data on your computer or on external device.
After you have saved the data, contact your Yamaha dealer to have the backup battery replaced.
MIDI Framing Error!
A MIDI framing error has occurred.
Press any button to cancel the error message. Then try transmitting the MIDI data once again.
MIDI OUT is NOT Selected!
Since the “MIDI OUT/THRU” connector (S) is set to “THRU,” MIDI messages cannot be transmitted.
If you want to transmit MIDI messages, use the “MIDI OUT SETUP” (page 21) function to set the [MIDI OUT/
THRU] connector to “OUT.”
MIDI Overrun Error!
A MIDI overrun error has occurred.
Press any button to cancel the error message. Then try transmitting the MIDI data once again.
MIDI Parity Error!
A MIDI parity error has occurred.
Press any button to cancel the error message. Then try transmitting the MIDI data once again.
MIDI Rx Buffer Full!
The MIDI reception buffer is full.
Press any button to cancel the error message. Then try transmitting the MIDI data once again. If the error occurs
again, try increasing the spacing between the MIDI data that is transmitted, or take other measures to prevent a large
amount of MIDI data from being transmitted at once.
NO FINE PARAMETER
This effect has no Fine parameters.
Effects of the CLASSIC bank have no Fine parameters; this message will appear if you press the [FINE PARAM] button for an effect of the CLASSIC bank.
Use the [PARAMETER] button to select Basic parameters.
Not Available in Compare
Mode!
You pressed an unavailable button while comparing the effect (while the [COMPARE] LED is blinking). Press the
[COMPARE] button to defeat Compare before you perform the desired operation.
Operation Locked!
The button etc. you attempted to operate has been disabled by the “OPERATION LOCK” function. Defeat the restriction as necessary. For details, refer to “Restricting operation of the SPX2000” on page 19.
PORT GENERAL is
Selected OFF!
MIDI messages cannot be transmitted because the MIDI port (GENERAL) is turned OFF.
If you want to transmit MIDI messages, set the “MIDI PORT GENERAL” setting (page 21) to the port that you want
to use for MIDI message transmission and reception.
U## Program is Empty!
There is no effect to recall.
Please re-select an effect to recall.
Sync Error!
The clock of the received digital input signal differs from the SPX2000’s operating clock.
For details, refer to “About word clock” (page 19).
This BANK is Protected!
You selected the PRESET bank or CLASSIC bank as the effect store-destination.
Since the PRESET bank and CLASSIC bank are read-only, you cannot change store to these effects, or change the
effect name, protect setting, or display background color. Press any button to cancel the error message. Then select a
store-destination from the USER bank.
This Program is Protected!
The effect store-destination is protected.
Press any button to cancel the error message. Then defeat the protect setting as desired. For details, refer to “Protecting an effect” on page 17.
USB Rx Buffer Full!
The USB reception buffer is full.
Press any button to cancel the error message. Then try transmitting the MIDI data once again. If the error occurs
again, try increasing the spacing between the MIDI data that is transmitted, or take other measures to prevent a large
amount of MIDI data from being transmitted at once.
WRONG WORD CLOCK!
The word clock signal from an external device has been interrupted, or is a frequency to which the SPX2000 cannot
synchronize. Check whether there are any problems with the connection from the device supplying the word clock,
and verify that the word clock settings are correct. For details, refer to “About word clock” (page 19).
