Layers and Performance Modes

The TENORI-ON Is The TENORI-ON is a new type of musical interface that combines control and display functions in matrix of 256 LED buttons. The 16 x 16 TENORI-ON matrix can be operated easily and intuitively, so that anyone can begin playing the instrument right away. Light animation is generated in synchronization with the performance and sound.

The TENORI-ON has 16 layers divided into 6 different "modes" with different input methods

and types of sound/light response.

Each layer individually memorizes note timing, voice, pitch, loop position and other

parameters. The performance modes and the layers they are associated with are listed in

the table below. Up to 16 layers can be played simultaneously, allowing a vast range of

possibilities for rich, complex musical expression and performance.

Layers and Blocks

The TENORI-ON handles a complete set of 16 layers as a "block." You can have up to 16

blocks, each with up to 16 layers. You can switch between blocks instantaneously to create

varied performances with plenty of musical interest.

Parameters that apply to individual layers (voice, pitch, note entry position, etc.) are

internally managed separately from parameters that apply to individual blocks (master

tempo, master transpose, master scale, etc.). This makes it possible, for example, to create

variations within the same song in which only the note timing is altered, and instantly switch

between variations. The only exception is that layers have the same voices throughout all

bocks (e.g. layer 3 in block 1 will use the same voice as layer 3 in block 10), so changing

blocks wont change the voice for a given layer.

The Layer/Block Relationship

Since the blocks will usually hold similar performance data, convenient block copy functions

are provided.

Voices

The various sounds that can be played by the TENORI-ON are called "voices." The TENORI-

ON can use up to 256 voices, 253 of which are built in and play via the internal MIDI tone

generator. A wide range of voices including piano, strings, drums, percussion, sound

effects, and voices developed specically for use with the TENORI-ON are provided.

The remaining three voice numbers are reserved for voice samples provided by the user.

Samples you have created using your computer or downloaded can be converted and

assigned for use with the TENORI-ON by using the supplied TENORI-ON User Voice

Manager software, saved to an SD Memory Card, and then loaded into the TENORI-ON.

User voice can be played in the same way as the internal MIDI tone generator voices.

A different voice can be assigned to each layer, and all notes played on a given layer will be

played using the same voice. Multiple layers with different voices assigned to each can be

played simultaneously. But of course you could also assign the same voice to multiple

layers. Maximum polyphony (the maximum number of notes that can be played

simultaneously) is 32. If more than 32 notes are played at the same time, only the last

(newest) 32 notes will be played.

The voices can be varied by adjusting gate time (the length of the notes), transposition,

octave shift, and other parameters. Theres also a Master Tuning parameter that can be used

to tune the MIDI tone generator voices.

The ionian C scale is assigned to layer pitches by default (i.e. the LED buttons produces

pitches corresponding to the white keys on a piano). The default scale can be changed via

the menu.

MIDI drum voices have no pitch variation. Each LED button produces the sound of a different

drum or percussion instrument. For this reason scale, octave shift, and transpose settings

have no effect on drum voices.

Reverb and chorus effects can be applied to the voices. The effect type and depth can be

set as required.

A number of other variations can be applied to voices. Refer to the items listed below for

more information.

Transmitting the TENORI-ON MIDI Output to a Computer

TENORI-ON performance data (MIDI data) can be transmitted to a computer where it can be

recorded and processed.

Connecting to a Computer

Synchronized Performance with Other TENORI-ON Instruments

Two TENORI-ON instruments can be connected via MIDI so that when playback is started or

paused on the "Master" TENORI-ON, the "Slave" TENORI-ON follows. To use this capability

one of the connected TENORI-ON instruments must be set to Master status and the other

must be set to Slave. It is also possible to synchronize more than two TENORI-ON

instruments in this way. In such cases only one TENORI-ON can function as the Master while

all others are Slaves.

Performance Modes Score Mode

Score Mode The Score Mode is assigned to TENORI-ON layers 1 7.

The Score Mode is selected by default when the power is turned on.

In this mode the TENORI-ON interface functions like a musical "score" on which you can

write the notes to be played in one musical measure via the 16 x 16 LED button matrix.

The "loop indicator" (four lit LED buttons in a vertical column) proceeds from left to right, and

active notes will play when the loop indicator passes over them. Light animation will also

occur for each note played. The loop indicator will loop back to the beginning once the right

edge of the matrix is reached.

Press the [OK] button while the highlighted "STOP" indicator in the lower right corner of the

LCD display is shown to temporarily pause loop playback. The loop indicator will stop at the

position at which the [OK] button is pressed. Press the [OK] button a second time and loop

playback will resume from the point at which it was paused. You can change the point from

which playback will resume by moving the paused loop indicator to the desired position

(press an LED button at the desired start position).

The horizontal axis corresponds to time and the vertical axis corresponds to the pitch of the

notes played. The factory default scale for the vertical axis is an ionian scale, corresponding

to the white keys on a piano.

Page 6.

Press an LED button briey to play the sound assigned to it. If you hold the LED button a bit

longer it will remain lit and will become an active note. Press and hold an active note to de-

Performance Modes Random Mode

Random Mode The Random Mode is assigned to layers 8 11.

If you press an LED button long enough to enter an active note in the Random Mode, the

active note will play back repeatedly. If you then enter a few more active notes, the lights will

"travel" from note to note, in the order entered, and the active notes will sound when the

traveling light passes over them. The Random Mode thus produces a totally different type of

loop from the Score Mode.

[Reference]

The next active note will play at the specied 1-beat timing. The length of each beat can be adjusted via the Loop Speed parameter (Loop Speed Page 29, 51. Master Loop Speed Page 45).

You can even spin loop-shapes you create in the Random Mode by holding the [L4] button

and running a nger around the matrix in the direction and at the speed of the desired spin.

The pitches of the notes will change accordingly as the shape spins, producing loop sound

effects.

In this mode you can press individual LED buttons or draw lines or curves on the matrix, and

those actions will be played back and repeated. You can keep adding to your "composition"

during playback to build up thick sonic textures.

[Reference]

Recording and playback of LED button operations loops in 16th-beat increments in the Score mode. LED button operations are played back in the next loop. The loop length (cycle) can be adjusted via the Loop Speed parameter (Loop Speed Page 29, 51. Master Loop Speed Page 45).

In the Draw Mode you cannot clear only a part of the performance. The entire layer can be cleared by pressing the [CLEAR] button.

When a button is pressed it will sound and be activated immediately. In the Draw Mode there

is no need to press and hold a button to enter a note. Because this, in the Draw mode is

possible to "draw sounds" by running your nger(s) over the LED button matrix in various

ways.

Push Mode The Push Mode is assigned to layer 15.

In this mode if you press and hold an LED button the sound of the corresponding note will

begin to change gradually. The way the note changes will depend on the voice used (this

feature will only work with sustained voices that have a time-based tonal change in the

sustained portion of the voices envelope). Voices 15/01 through 15/16 have been

specically created for use in the Push mode, and are recommended.

The ashing surrounding the pressed button will gradually get brighter and wider.

If the button is held briey the note and ashing will stop when you release it, but if you hold

the button for longer the note and ashing will continue even after the button is released.

To stop a note that is sounding, press the corresponding LED button (at the center of the

Using the [R5] Button to Copy Layers

By holding the [R5] button and performing the operations described below you can copy

either a single layer or all layers from the current block to another block.

1. If the current block is not the block containing the layers you want to copy, hold the

[R5] button and press the LED button corresponding to the desired "source" Block (the

LEDs in that column will light dimly).

2. If you repeatedly press the lowest LED button in the lit column while holding the [R5]

button, the LED buttons in the lit column will switch between three levels of brightness

in the following sequence: dim medium bright dim. The functions

corresponding to each brightness level are: dim = block move, medium = copy 1 layer,

bright = copy all layers. The procedures to copy 1 or all layers are described below.

To Copy a Single Layer

While holding the [R5] button while the LED buttons are lit dimly, press the lowest LED

button in the lit column once so that the LED buttons shine at medium brightness, and

then press an LED button in column corresponding to the block you want to copy to.

The current layer from the source block will be copied to the same layer in the

destination block. Release the [R5] button.

To Copy All Layers

While holding the [R5] button while the LED buttons are lit dimly, press the lowest LED

button in the lit column twice so that the LED buttons shine at maximum brightness,

and then press an LED button in column corresponding to the block you want to copy

to. All layers from the source block will be copied to the destination block. Release the

[R5] button.

When the copy operation is complete the destination block will be selected and the

LED buttons will automatically return to their minimum brightness level.

Handling SD Memory Cards *SD Memory Card is a registered trademark of the SD Card Association.

This instrument features a built-in SD Memory Card slot. It lets you save original data youve created on the

instrument to a SD Memory Card, and allows you to load data from a card to the instrument. Be sure to

handle SD Memory Cards with care. Follow the important precautions below.

Compatible SD Memory Card types

SD Memory Cards with a capacity of two gigabytes or less.

NOTE:

SD Memory Cards formatted on this device may or may not be useable as is on other devices.

This instrument is not compatible with SDIO and SDHC cards.

Formatting SD Memory Cards

If you nd that you are unable to use new, blank SD Memory Cards or cards that have been used with other devices, you may need to format them. For details on how to format a SD Memory Card, see Page 107. Keep in mind that all data on the card will be lost after formatting. Make sure to check beforehand whether or not the card contains important data.

NOTE:

SD Memory Cards formatted on this device may or may not be useable as is on other devices.

Inserting/removing SD Memory Cards

Inserting SD Memory Cards

Insert the SD Memory Card with the terminal (gold- plated) side face down into the card slot, until it clicks into place.

Do not insert the SD Memory Cards in the wrong direction.

Do not insert anything other than a SD Memory Card in the slot.

Removing SD Memory Cards

After making sure that the instrument is not accessing* the SD Memory Card, insert the card until it clicks into place and release it. When the SD Memory Card is ejected, pull it out of the drive. If the card cannot be removed because it is stuck, do not try to force it, but instead try re-inserting the card completely into the slot and attempt to eject it again.

* Accessing includes saving, loading, formatting and deleting. Also, be aware that the instrument will automatically access the SD Memory Card to check the media type when it is inserted while the instrument is turned on.

Never attempt to remove the SD Memory Card or turn the power off during accessing. Doing so can damage the data on the instrument or card and possibly damage the SD Memory Card itself.

About SD Memory Cards

Handle SD Memory Cards with care, and follow

these precautions:

There are times when static electricity affects SD Memory Card. Before you touch a SD Memory Card, touch something metallic such as a door knob and aluminum sash, to reduce the possibility of static electricity.

Be sure to remove the SD Memory Card from the SD Card slot when it is not in use for a long time.

Do not expose the SD Memory Card to direct sunlight, extremely high or low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust or liquids.

Do not place heavy objects on a SD Memory Card or bend or apply pressure to the card in any way.

Do not touch the gold-plated terminals of the SD Memory Card or put any metallic plate onto the terminals.

Do not expose the SD Memory Card to magnetic elds, such as those produced by televisions, speakers, motors, etc., since magnetic elds can partially or completely erase data on the SD Memory Card, rendering it unreadable.

To protect your data (write-protect switch):

SD Memory Cards are equipped with a write-protect switch. To prevent accidental erasure of important data saved in SD Memory Card, slide the write-protect switch on the device to the "protect" position. When saving data, make sure that the write-protect switch is set to the "overwrite" position.

Data Backup

For maximum data security, Yamaha recommends that you keep two copies of important data on separate SD Memory Cards. This gives you a backup if one card is lost or damaged.

6. Samplings

Provides access to Samplings le operations.

The TENORI-ON provides three user voices: <01/16,> <02/16,> and <03/16.> Audio

samples can be loaded into the TENORI-ON and played via these voices.

Audio samples can be converted to the sample format used by the TENORI-ON (.tnw le

extension) using the TENORI-ON User Voice Manager software provided on the supplied

CD-ROM. This menu provides access to a number of functions that can be used to manage

".tnw" les.

The following 5 Samplings le functions are provided:

Creating User Voices (Sampling Files)

Audio les that have been recorded using a computer or downloaded from the Internet

must be converted to the TENORI-ON user voice le format ("sampling" le format with a

".tnw" le name extension) before they can be loaded into the TENORI-ON user voice

numbers and played.

The TENORI-ON User Voice Manager software provided on the supplied CD-ROM can be

used to convert audio les to the appropriate format and assign them to the TENORI-ON

LED buttons. Sampling les thus created can then be transferred to the TENORI-ON using

an SD Memory Card.

1 Prepare the audio les.

Samples can be extracted from commercially obtainable sample CDs, downloaded

from the Internet, or recorded using your own recording equipment or computer. The

sample les must be in either WAV or AIFF format.

The supported le formats are as follows:

22.05 kHz, 24 kHz, 44.1 kHz, or 48 kHz sampling rate; 8 or 16 bits; stereo or mono.

Mono les will be converted to stereo les with the same data in the L and R channels.

Up to 16 samples can be assigned to each user voice (one of each of 16 LED

buttons). For a single instrument voice, for example, those samples can be at 16

different pitches. The audio les assigned to a TENORI-ON user voice can be used

in two different ways:

Sound effects, drum or percussion sounds, or other types of one-shot samples can be individually played by the LED buttons to which they are assigned.

Audio les of the same instrument at different pitches can be assigned to the LED buttons in scale sequence so they can be played in the same way as the internal MIDI tone generator voices.

It is necessary to prepare the appropriate type of audio les according to way they

are to be used.

2 Launch the TENORI-ON User Voice Manager software.

Use the TENORI-ON User Voice Manager software included on the supplied CD-

ROM to convert your les to the TENORI-ON format and assign them to the

appropriate LED buttons.

2-1 Install the TENORI-ON User Voice Manager on your computer following the

procedure outlined in the separate "TENORI-ON User Voice Manager

Installation Guide" document.

2-2 Double click the "TNR_UserVoiceMgr.exe" or "TNR_UserVoiceMgr.app" le on

your computer to launch the software.

A graphic representation of the TENORI-ON and LED button arrangement in the Score

Mode will appear on the display. [LOAD] buttons 1 through 16 on the display correspond

to the equivalent TENORI-ON LED button positions.

When shipped from the factory the vertical-axis of the LED button matrix is assigned to a scale corresponding to the white keys on a piano, as show in the illustration below. If you assign audio les with pitches corresponding to the default pitches of the buttons, your user voice can be played in the same way as the internal voices.

Symptom Possible Cause & Solution Page

Overall

Clicks and pops occur occasionally.

Noise can be produced by nearby electronic devices being turned on or off, electrical motors, or similar sources. Try to use an electrical output as far away from the suspected noise source as possible. If no cause can be found, contact your Yamaha service center.

Interference from mobile phones, radios, television sets, and similar devices.

Interference can be caused by mobile phones, radio transmitters, or similar devices operating in the vicinity of the instrument. If the noise seems to be excessive contact your Yamaha service center.

The instrument causes interference with radios or television sets.

This instrument can cause interference if operated too close to radio or television receivers. Move the instrument further away from the receiving devices if interference occurs.

No response to long button presses. The long-press (sensitivity) parameter may be set to too long a time. Reduce the time setting.

A pair of headphones or external speakers may be connected.

The mute function may be engaged. Turn it off. page 47

MIDI connection is not established with the Master TENORI-ON, or does not operate properly, even though "Slave Mode" is selected in the "Preference menu".

Some notes cut off.

The instruments 32-note maximum polyphony has been exceeded (i.e. more than 32 notes are being played at once).

In all modes other than the Push Mode, only one note of a given pitch can play at the same time in a single layer. When a second note of the same pitch is played in the same layer, any previous note of the same pitch is turned off before the new note is played.

The Sound Length setting is too long. The TENORI-ON uses a stereo tone generator (each note uses two notes of the instruments polyphony), so when a long Sound Length is specied the maximum polyphony (number of simultaneous notes) can be easily exceeded, with the result that the notes may not play as expected.

Pitch and Voices

The scale assigned to the vertical/ horizontal axis does not sound right.

A scale other than the default Ionian scale has been selected. Select the Ionian scale.

When a new block is selected and the voice is changed, the voice used in the rst layer changes as well.

The same voice applies to the same-numbered layers in all blocks. page 6
