14. Reset button

Resets all settings on this screen to their default values.

15. Pitch Range

Sets the range of pitch bends. 0 does not take a pitch bend, with 1 half-width and 12-octave range.

16. Pitch step

If nonzero, the pitch is changed in units of this value when the pitches bend is moved. One in a semitone, twelve in one octave. If this value is nonzero, the pitch range is fixed at 12.

17. Portamento on Off

Turn Portamento on or off.

18. Portamento mode

In poly mode, Sus-key p retain and Sus-key p follow, mono mode has a fingered and full time mode. In Sus-key P retain, the pitch of the sound with the keyboard turned off is unchanged, and the portamento from the pitch of the keyboard pressed just before toward the pitch of the newly pressed keyboard. In Sus-ket P follow, the pitch of the sound with the keyboard turned off is portamento toward the pitch of the newly pressed keyboard. The pitch of the sound with the keyboard pressed does not change. In fingered, it only takes a portamento to play legato (play the next keyboard while holding a certain keyboard). Full time always takes a portamento.

19. Glissando

When turned on, it will take glissando instead of Portamento.

20. Portamento Time

Portamento set the speed. Portamento at 0 and slowest at 99.

21. Controller Range

Sets the size of the modulation wheel (CC # 1), foot Controller (CC # 4), Breath Controller (CC # 2), and after-touch effect. 0 does not take effect, and 99 is the most effective.

22. Controller pitch

Toggles whether or not to control the interval change in the LFO. When the LFO setting pitch mod sens is 0, it does not take effect.

23. Controller amplitude

Toggles whether the LFO controls the volume change. If the amp mod sens of the Sense/level setting is 0, it does not take effect.

24. Controller EG Bias

Changes the volume of the envelope. If the amp mod sens of the Sense/level setting is 0, it does not take effect. It becomes the brilliance effect when put on the modulator, and becomes the volume effect when putting it on the carrier. If EG bias is enabled and the amp mod sens of the carrier is the maximum and the controller is minimal, there may be no sound.

1. Middle C Transpose

You can set the transpose. Specifies a range of ± 2 octaves where the Central de (C3) is to be transposed.

2. Feedback level

Each algorithm has an operator that takes only one feedback. Set the amount of feedback in the range 0 to 7.

3. Oscillator key synchronization (OSC key Sync)

When on, the operator always oscillates from 0 to the phase. Therefore, when the keyboard is pressed, the sound becomes constant, but noise may occur. When off, the operator can smoothly connect to the previous sound. Therefore, the tone may change when the keyboard is pressed.

4. Cancel button

Discard the changes and close the screen. Please note that if MIDI output is specified, the settings will be sent.

5. Done button

LFO Settings

Dixie LFO
The low Frequency oscillator (LFO) is the one that oscillates at a low frequency and changes the pitch and volume of the sound.

1. Waveform

Select from 6 types of LFO waveforms. There are triangular wave (triangle), descending saw wave (saw down), Rose saw-up, square, square, sine wave (sine), sample & Hold.

2. LFO key Synchronization

When on, the LFO phase is reset when the keyboard is pressed. When off, the LFO phase has nothing to do with the keyboard.

3. LFO speed

Set the LFO speed in the range of 0 to 99. 0 is the slowest and 99 is the quickest setting.

4. LFO delay

After pressing the key, set the time before the LFO takes. Pressing the keyboard at 0 will take effect immediately. The longest time to take effect after pressing the keyboard in 99.

5. Pitch modulation Depth (PMD)

Sets the depth of the LFO to the interval in the range of 0 to 99. 0 does not take effect, and 99 is the most effective. PMD is a variation of the pitch, apart from the effect of each controller.

6. Amplitude modulation Depth (AMD)

Sets the depth of the LFO to the volume in the range of 0 to 99. 0 does not take effect, and 99 is the most effective. Apart from the effects of each controller, AMD changes the volume.

7. Pitch modulation sensitivity (PMS)

Sets the sensitivity of the LFO to the interval in the range of 0 to 7. In addition to PMD, it is affected when pitch is enabled on the controller of the Param screen.

8. Cancel button
