CVP-609/605 Reference Manual 20

Using Keyboard Harmony

Type Multi Assign The Multi Assign effect automatically assigns notes played simultaneously on the right-hand section of the keyboard to separate parts (Voices). Both of the keyboard parts [Main] and [Layer] should be turned on when using the Multi Assign effect. The Main and Layer Voices are alternately assigned to the notes in the order you play.

Echo Type (Echo, Tremolo and Trill) When one of the Echo Types is selected, the corresponding effect (echo, tremolo, trill) is applied to the note played in the right-hand section of the keyboard in time with the currently set tempo, regardless of the [ACMP ON/OFF] and the Left part on/off status. Keep in mind that Trill works when you hold down two notes on the keyboard simultaneously (last two notes if more than two notes are held), and it plays those notes alternately.

Volume This parameter is available for all types with the exception of Multi Assign. It determines the level of the harmony/echo notes generated by the Harmony/Echo effect.

Speed This parameter is only available when Echo, Tremolo, or Trill is selected in Type above. It determines the speed of the Echo, Tremolo, and Trill effects.

Assign This parameter is available for all types with the exception of Multi Assign. This lets you determine the keyboard part via which the harmony/echo notes will be sounded. Auto: Applies the effect to the part which is turned on. When the both parts are on, the Main

part is given priority over the Layer part. Multi: When both parts are on, the note played on the keyboard is sounded by Main part and

the harmonies (effect) are divided to the Main and Layer parts. When only one part is on, the note played on the keyboard and effect are sounded by that part.

Main, Layer: Applies the effect to the selected part (Main or Layer).

Chord Note Only

This parameter is available when one of the Harmony Types is selected. When this is set to On, the Harmony effect is applied only to the note (played in the right-hand section of the keyboard) that belongs to a chord played in the chord section of the keyboard.

Minimum Velocity

This parameter is available for all types with the exception of Multi Assign. It determines the lowest velocity value at which the harmony note will sound. This allows you to selectively apply the harmony by your playing strength, letting you create harmony accents in the melody. The harmony effect is applied when you play the key strongly (above the set value).

CVP-609/605 Reference Manual 21

Microphone Settings

This section lets you set parameters for various Effects that are applied to the microphone sound. You should make both Vocal and Talk settings Vocal, for your singing performance, and Talk, for making announcements between songs, for example.

1 Microphone On/Off

Turns on or off the microphone sound. When set to On, the microphone sound will be input to the instrument NOTE The setting here is equivalent to that in the Vocal Harmony display (page 24).

2 Vocal/Talk Switching

When you sing into the microphone for your performance, set this to Vocal. When you talk normally or need to make announcements between songs of your performance, set this to Talk. This lets you instantly change the microphone settings depending on the situation. NOTE The setting here is equivalent to that in the Vocal Harmony display (page 24).

3 Volume Adjustment

Adjusts the input volume of the microphone sound. The input level is shown at the right. NOTE The setting here is equivalent to that in the Vocal Harmony display (page 24).

4 3 Band EQ EQ (Equalizer) is a processor that divides the frequency spectrum into multiple bands which can be boosted or cut as required to tailor the overall frequency response. The instrument features a three-band (Low, Mid and High) digital equalizer function for the microphone sound. For each of three bands, you can adjust the center frequency (Hz) and level (dB) via the corresponding knobs on the display.

5 Noise Gate This effect mutes the input signal when the input from the microphone falls below a specified level. This effectively cuts off extraneous noise, allowing the desired signal (vocal, etc.) to pass.

On/Off Turns Noise Gate on or off.

Th. (Threshold)

Adjusts the input level above which the gate begins to open.

6 Compressor This effect holds down the output when the input signal from the microphone exceeds a specified level. This is especially useful for smoothing out vocals that have widely varying dynamics. It effectively compresses the signal, making loud parts softer.

On/Off Turns Compressor on or off.

Th. (Threshold)

Adjusts the input level above which compression begins to be applied.

Ratio Adjusts the compression ratio. Higher ratios result in a more compressed sound, with a reduced dynamic range.

Output Adjusts the final output level.

1 Harmony On/Off

Turns Vocal Harmony on or off.

2 Mode Although one of the three following Modes is automatically selected when a Vocal Harmony type is selected, you can change the Mode.

Chordal The harmony notes are determined by the following three chord types: chords played in the chord section of the keyboard (with [ACMP ON/OFF] turned on), chords played in the left hand section of the keyboard (with the Left part turned on), and chords contained in Song data for controlling the harmony. (Not available if the Song does not contain any chord data.) NOTE If you want to apply the Vocal Harmony by pressing the chords in

the chord section when the Style is stopped, you need to set the Stop ACMP parameter to a setting other than Disabled in the Style Setting display (page 76).

Vocoder The microphone sound is output via the notes you play on the keyboard or via the Song playback notes.

Vocoder-Mono Basically the same as the Vocoder. In this mode, only single-note melodies or lines can be played back (with last-note priority).

3 (When the Mode is set to Chordal)

Chord Source

Determines which data or event of a Song will be used for chord detection. Off: Detects no chord from the Song data. XF: Chord data defined via XF will be used. 1 16: Detects a chord from notes of the MIDI channel specified here.

Type Determines how the harmony notes are applied to the microphone sound by selecting one of the Chordal Types. Almost all Types apply the harmony notes based on the chord specified via the left hand section of the keyboard, chord section of the keyboard, or the Song data, with the exception of the following two Types. ScaleDiatonic: This generates harmony notes based on the Key Root and Key Type

specified in the Harmony Assign display (7), meaning that the harmony notes do not depend on the chord but match the diatonic scale of the current songs key signature.

Parallel: This adds a note to the lead note (microphone sound) with the interval specified at 6, regardless of the chord.

NOTE Abv in the Chordal Type List means that the harmony notes are generated above the lead note (microphone sound) while Blw means that the harmony notes are generated below the lead note.

4 (When the Mode is set to Vocoder or Vocoder -Mono)

Song Ch When set to one of 1 16, note data (played from a Song on this instrument or the connected computer) of the corresponding channel is used to control the harmony. When set to Off, Song data control over harmony is turned off.

Part When set to Mute, the channel selected above (to control Harmony) is muted (turned off) during Song playback.

Keyboard Off: Keyboard control over harmony is turned off. Upper: Notes played to the right of the Split Point control the harmony. Lower: Notes played to the left of the Split Point control the harmony.

5 Balance Lets you set the balance between the lead vocal (the microphone sound) and Vocal Harmony sound. Raising this value increases the volume of the Vocal Harmony and decreases that of the lead vocal. When this is set to L H, only the lead vocal is output.

6 Balance adjustment for each Lead note and Harmony note

The following parameters can be adjusted for each Lead note (microphone sound) and Harmony note. Transpose/Degree: Lets you shift the pitch for each Harmony note and Lead note. The

range for all notes is the same; however, the lead note can only be adjusted in octaves. When the Chordal Type is set to ScaleDiatonic, this parameter changes to Degree, letting you shift the pitch in degree from -3 octaves (-22 scale degrees) Unison (1 scale degree) +3 octaves (+22 scale degrees).

Detune: Determines the fine pitch setting for each Harmony note from -50 cents to +50 cents.

Formant: Determines the formant setting for each Harmony note. The higher the value, the more feminine the harmony voice becomes. The lower the value, the more masculine the voice.

Pan: Determines the pan position setting for each Harmony note. Setting each Harmony note to a different pan position, with the Lead vocal at center, for example, results in a naturally wide stereo sound.

Volume: Determines the volume setting for each Harmony note. Use this to adjust the relative level balance among the Lead vocal and the Harmony notes.

NOTE When PITCH CORRECT MODE (7) is set to OFF the Lead part is not available for the Transpose, Degree, Detune and Formant parameters.

NOTE The Transpose values of the Harmonies are available only when the Mode (2) is set to Chordal.

7 Harmony Assign

Lets you set how the Harmony notes are assigned or voiced to the Lead note (microphone sound). For details, refer to the MIDI Reference (Vocal Harmony Parameter List) on the website.

When the Harmony mode is set to Chordal Session Table: Determines how the harmonies will be voiced, or what type of chord will

be used in creating the harmonies, according to different musical styles. NOTE This parameter is available only when the Chordal Type is set to something other than

ScaleDiatonic or Parallel.

Key Root, Key Type: When the Chordal Type (3) is set to ScaleDiatonic, this parameter is available. Harmony notes based on the settings here do not depend on the chord but match the diatonic scale of the current songs key signature.

When the Harmony mode is set to Vocoder or Vocoder-Mono Transpose Mode: Determines the amount by which the harmony parts are transposed. A

setting of 0 results in no transposition, while the Auto setting results in automatic transposition.

Detail Setting

PITCH CORRECT MODE: Corrects the pitch of the Lead note (microphone sound). Off does not correct while Hard corrects the pitch most accurately.

LEAD PITCH DETECT SPEED, HARM.PITCH DETECT SPEED: Determines how fast the pitch of the Lead note and the harmony notes are detected in response to the signal via the microphone. 1 responds most slowly, 4 is standard, 15 responds most quickly, and as MIC SETTING gives priority to the speed specified at the Pitch Detect Speed of the Microphone Setting display (page 23).

HARMONY EFFECT: Determines the Effect type applied to the Harmony notes added to the Lead note.

HARMONY STABILITY: Determines the stability degree to which the Harmony is applied to the Lead note. When set to Stable, this has a relatively stable sound with little harmony motion. When set to Dynamic, this tends to add harmony with motion according to the input sound.

LEAD VIBRATO DEPTH: This specifies the vibrato depth of the lead sound. HARM.VIBRATO DEPTH: This specifies the vibrato depth of the harmony sound. VIBRATO SPEED: This specifies the vibrato speed of both the lead and harmony sounds. VIBRATO DELAY: This specifies the vibrato delay of both the lead and harmony sounds.

8 Effect On/Off Turns on or off the Effects applied to the Vocal Harmony notes.

9 Type Selects the Effect type applied to the Vocal Harmony notes. You can edit also the detailed parameters of the selected type. For information about the Effect Parameters, refer to the MIDI Reference (Vocal Harmony Parameter List) on the website.

Editable Parameters in the Voice Edit display

Common

Volume Adjusts the volume of the current edited Voice.

Touch Sense Depth Adjusts the touch sensitivity (velocity sensitivity), or how greatly the volume responds to your playing strength.

Depth: Determines the velocity sensitivity, or how much the level of the Voice changes in response to your playing strength (velocity).

Offset: Determines the amount by which received velocities are adjusted for the actual velocity effect.

Offset

Part Octave Main/Layer Shifts the octave range of the edited Voice up or down in octaves. When the edited Voice is used as any of the Main and Layer parts, the Main/Layer parameter is available; when the edited Voice is used as the Left part, the Left parameter is available.

Left

Mono Mono/Poly Determines whether the edited Voice is played monophonically or polyphonically.

Portamento Time

Sets the portamento time (pitch transition time) when the edited Voice is set to Mono above. NOTE The Portamento Time determines the pitch transition time. Portamento is a function

that creates a smooth transition in pitch from the first note played on the keyboard to the next.

Sound

Filter Filter is a processor that changes the timbre or tone of a sound by either blocking or passing a specific frequency range. The parameters below determine the overall timbre of the sound by boosting or cutting a certain frequency range. In addition to making the sound either brighter or mellower, Filter can be used to produce electronic, synthesizer-like effects.

Brightness Determines the cutoff frequency or effective frequency range of the filter (see diagram). Higher values result in a brighter sound.

Harmonic Cont. (Harmonic Content)

Determines the emphasis given to the cutoff frequency (resonance), set in Brightness above (see diagram). Higher values result in a more pronounced effect.

EG The EG (Envelope Generator) settings determine how the level of the sound changes in time. This lets you reproduce many sound characteristics of natural acoustic instruments such as the quick attack and decay of percussion sounds, or the long release of a sustained piano tone.

Attack Determines how quickly the sound reaches its maximum level after the key is played. The lower the value, the quicker the attack.

Decay Determines how quickly the sound reaches its sustain level (a slightly lower level than maximum). The lower the value, the quicker the decay.

Release Determines how quickly the sound decays to silence after the key is released. The lower the value, the quicker the decay.

Vibrato Vibrato is a quavering, vibrating sound effect that is produced by regularly modulating the pitch of the Voice.

Depth Determines the intensity of the Vibrato effect. Higher settings result in a more pronounced Vibrato.

Speed Determines the speed of the Vibrato effect.

Delay Determines the amount of time that elapses between the playing of a key and the start of the Vibrato effect. Higher settings increase the delay of the Vibrato onset.

Modulation When the Modulation function is assigned to a pedal (page 38), the pedal can be used to modulate the parameters below as well as the pitch (vibrato). Here, you can set the degree to which the pedal modulates each of the following parameters.

Filter Determines the degree to which the pedal modulates the Filter Cutoff Frequency. For details about the filter, refer to page 43.

Editing an Organ Flutes Voice (Voice Edit)

The Organ Flute Voices can be edited by adjusting the footage levers, adding the attack sound, applying effect and equalizer, etc.

1 Select the desired Organ Flutes Voice. From the [Organ] Category, touch [Organ Flutes], then select the desired Organ Flutes Voice.

2 On the Voice Edit display called up via [Menu] [Voice Edit], select the desired parameter then edit the value. NOTE The Voice Edit display for the Organ Flutes Voices can also be called up by touching the Organ Flutes icon at upper right

of the Organ Flutes Voice name in the Home display. This is useful for adjusting footage settings and controlling the rotary speaker while you play.

1 Footage Determines the basic sound of the organ flutes.

2 Organ Type Specifies the type of organ tone generation to be simulated. Sine: Produces a clean, clear sound. Vintage: Produces a gritty, slightly distorted sound. Euro (only for CVP-609): Produces the sound of the transistor electronic organ

equipped with the electronic tremolo.

3 Volume Adjusts the overall volume of the Organ Flutes.

4 Rotary Speaker Turns on or off the Rotary Speaker and switches the Rotary Speaker speed between the Slow and Fast. This is available only when an Effect Type of the ROTARY SP Category is selected.

5 Vibrato Turns on or off the vibrato, and adjusts its depth and speed.

6 Response Affects both the attack and release (page 43) portion of the sound, increasing or decreasing the response time of the initial swell and release, based on the Footage controls. The higher the value, the slower the swell and release.

7 Attack Selects First or Each as the Attack mode and adjusts the Attack length of the sound. In the First mode, attack (percussive sound) is applied only to the first notes played and held simultaneously; while the first notes are held, any subsequently played notes have no attack applied. In the Each mode, attack is applied equally to all notes. The Attack length produces a longer or shorter decay immediately after the initial attack. The longer the value, the longer the decay time.

Creating/Editing Styles (Style Creator)

The Style Creator function lets you create your original Style by recording the rhythm pattern via the keyboard performance and using the already-recorded Style data. Basically, select a preset Style that is closest to the type you want to create, then record the rhythm pattern, bass line, chord backing, or phrase (referred to as Source Pattern in the Style Creator) for each channel of each Section. Like the Song, two Recording methods are available: Realtime Recording and Step Recording (page 48).

Style Data Structure Consisting of Source Patterns A Style is made up of the different Sections (Intro, Main, Ending, etc.) and each Section has eight separate channels, each of which is referred to as Source Pattern. With the Style Creator feature, you can create a Style by separately recording the Source Pattern for each channel, or by importing pattern data from other existing Styles.

Basic Procedure for creating a Style The detailed instructions are described on the reference page of each step.

1 Select the desired Style as starting data.

2 Call up the Style Creator display via [Menu] [StyleCreator].

3 On the Basic display, select a Section (page 48). As necessary, make the following settings. If you create a Style entirely from scratch, touch [Initialize Style] to make the current Style empty. If you initialize the Style, set the length (measure amount) of the Source Pattern. Set the overall parameters such as Tempo and Beat.

1 On the Rec Channel display, touch and hold the desired channel until it turns red. The selected channel becomes the Recording target whether the channel already contains data or not. If recorded data is already included, you should record the additional notes to the selected channel as Overdub Recording.

2 If necessary, select a Voice then practice the rhythm pattern to be recorded. Touch the instrument icon (illustration) to call up the Voice Selection display then select the desired Voice such as Drum Kit. After selecting, touch [Close] to return to the original display. With the selected Voice, practice the rhythm pattern to be recorded.

Realtime Recording

Realtime Recording Characteristics in the Style Creator

Loop Recording Style playback repeats the rhythm patterns of several measures in a loop, and Style recording is also done using loops. For example, if you start recording with a two-measure Main section, the two measures are repeatedly recorded. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition (loop), letting you record while hearing previously recorded material.

Overdub Recording This method records new material to a channel already containing recorded data, without deleting the original data. In Style recording, the recorded data is not deleted, except when using functions such as Clear Drum Inst (page 50) Delete (pages 50, 51) and Remove Event (page 54). For example, if you start recording with a two-measure Main section, the two measures are repeated many times. Notes that you record will play back from the next repetition, letting you overdub new material to the loop while hearing previously recorded material. When creating a Style based on an existing internal Style, overdub recording is applied only to the rhythm channels. For all other channels (except rhythm), you need to delete the original data before recording.

Available Voices for recording For the Rhythm1 channel, any except Organ Flutes Voices can be used for recording. For the Rhythm2 channel, only Drum/SFX kits can be used for recording.

Record a phrase in CM7 which will play appropriate notes as change chords during performance

Rules when recording a Main or Fill-in With the default initial settings, the Source Root/Chord is set to CM7. This means that you should record a Source Pattern which is to be triggered by specifying CM7 during normal performance. Record a bass line, phrase or chord backing which you want to hear when CM7 is specified. More concretely, see below. Use only the CM7 scale tones when recording the Bass and Phrase channels (i.e., C, D, E, G, A, and B). Use only the chord tones when recording the Chord and Pad channels (i.e., C, E, G, and B).

If you observe this rule, Style playback notes are appropriately converted depending on the chord changes you make during your performance.

Rules when recording an Intro or Ending These Sections are designed assuming that the chord is not changed during playback. This is why you need not observe the rule for Main and Fill-In Sections described above, and you can make the chord progression in recording. However, follow the rule below since the Source Root/Chord is set to CM7. When recording the Intro, make sure that the recorded phrase should lead to CM7 scale music. When recording the Ending, make sure that CM7 scale music should lead to the recorded phrase.

Setting the Source Root/Chord if necessary Although the default Source Root/Chord is set to CM7 as described above, you can change this to your favorite one which lets you play easily. Call up the SFF Edit display, set the Source Root and Chord to the favorite or desired Root and Chord type. Keep in mind that when you change the Source Chord from the default CM7 to another chord, the chord notes and recommended notes will also change. For details, refer to page 56.

3 Press the STYLE CONTROL [R/J](START/STOP) button to start recording. With the already recorded data playing back, turn each channel on or off by touching as desired. If necessary, delete a channel by touching [Delete] located under the desired channel.

4 As soon as loop playback returns to the first beat in the first measure, start playing the bass line, chord backing or phrase to be recorded.

5 Press the [R/J](START/STOP) button to stop playback. If you want to add more notes, press the [R/J](START/STOP) button again to continue recording.

To hear the playback sound of the already recorded channels with another Source Chord/ Root:

1) Call up the SFF Edit display, then set the Target Ch at the top of the display to Rhythm1 or Rhythm2. 2) Touch [Play Root/Chord] to call up the operation display. 3) Press the STYLE CONTROL [R/J](START/STOP) button to start playback. 4) On the display, set the Play Root/Chord to the desired Chord root and Chord type.

This operation lets you hear how the Source Pattern is played back via the chord change during normal performance.

6 Touch and hold the Recording channel for a while (until the button changes color) to exit from the Recording mode.

The explanations here apply to step 4 on page 48. In the Step Recording (Style Edit) display called up by touching (Edit) at the upper right of the display, you can record or edit notes one by one. This Step Recording procedure is essentially the same as that for Song Recording (page 60) with the exception of the points listed below:

In the Song Creator, the End mark position can be changed freely; in the Style Creator, it cannot be changed. This is because the length of the Style is fixed for all channels as you set in the Basic display (page 48). For example, if you create a Style of four measures length, the End mark position is automatically set to the end of fourth measure, and cannot be changed in the Style Edit display.

Recording channels can be changed in the Song Creators Edit display; however, they cannot be changed in the Style Creator. Select the Recording channel in the Rec channel display.

In the Style Creator, Chord, Lyrics, and System Exclusive data cannot be entered. The Channel data can be entered and System Exclusive data can be edited (delete, copy or move).

The explanations here apply to step 4 on page 48. The Assembly display shows that each channel data of the current Section has been copied from which Style, which Section, and which channel. For each channel, touch the Style name, Section name, or Channel name as necessary to select the desired one.

The explanations here apply to step 5 on page 48. The Channel Edit display lets you edit the already recorded channel data. Select the Target channel then edit the desired parameters. After editing the desired parameter, touch [Execute] to actually enter the edits for each setup window. When execution is completed, this button changes to [Undo], letting you restore the original data if you are not satisfied with the results. The Undo function only has one level; only the previous operation can be undone.

Channel Edit

Target Ch Select the target channel to be edited. All items with the exception of the Groove are to be applied to the channel specified here.

Groove This lets you add swing to the music or change the feel of the beat by making subtle shifts in the timing (clock) of the Style. The Groove settings are applied to all channels of the selected Section.

Original Beat Specifies the beats to which Groove timing is to be applied. In other words, if 8 Beat is selected, Groove timing is applied to the 8th notes; if 12 Beat is selected, Groove timing is applied to 8th-note triplets.

Beat Converter Actually changes the timing of the beats (specified in the Original Beat parameter above) to the selected value. For example, when Original Beat is set to 8 Beat and Beat Converter is set to 12, all 8th notes in the section are shifted to 8th-note triplet timing. The 16A and 16B Beat Converter which appear when Original Beat is set to 12 Beat are variations on a basic 16th- note setting.

Swing Produces a swing feel by shifting the timing of the back beats, depending on the Original Beat parameter above. For example, if the specified Original Beat value is 8 Beat, the Swing parameter will selectively delay the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th beats of each measure to create a swing feel. The settings A through E produce different degrees of swing, with A being the most subtle and E being the most pronounced.

Fine Selects a variety of Groove templates to be applied to the selected section. The Push settings cause certain beats to be played early, while Heavy settings delay the timing of certain beats. The numbered settings (2, 3, 4, 5) determine which beats are to be affected. All beats up to the specified beat but not including the first beat will be played early or delayed (for example, the 2nd and 3rd beats, if 3 is selected). In all cases, A types produce minimum effect, B types produce medium effect, and C types produce maximum effect.

Dynamics This changes the velocity/volume (or accent) of certain notes in the Style playback. The Dynamics settings are applied to each channel or all channels of the selected Style.

Accent Type Determines the type of accent applied in other words, which notes are emphasized.

Strength Determines how strongly the selected Accent Type (above) will be applied. The higher the value, the stronger the effect.

Expand/ Compress

Expands or compresses the range of velocity values. Values higher than 100% expand the dynamic range, while values lower than 100% compress it.

Boost/Cut Boosts or cuts all velocity values. Values above 100% boost the overall velocity, while values below 100% reduce it.

Apply To All Channels

When set to On, the settings in this display will be applied to all the channels of the current Section. When set to Off, the settings in this display will be applied to the channel specified at the Target Ch in the Channel Edit display.

Target Ch Select the target channel to be edited.

Source Root/ Chord (Play Root/ Chord)

These settings determine the original key of the Source Pattern (i.e., the key used when recording the pattern to the channel other than the Rhythm channels). If you set Fm7 here, specifying Fm7 in the Chord section of the keyboard will play back the originally recorded data (Source Pattern). The default setting is CM7 (Source Root = C and Source Chord = M7). Depending on the selected chord type specified here, the playable notes (scale notes and chord notes) differ. When Initialize Style is executed in the Basic display, the default setting of CM7 is automatically selected.

IMPORTANT Make sure to set the parameters here before recording. If you change the settings after recording, the recorded Source Pattern cannot be converted to the appropriate notes when changing the chord during your keyboard performance.

NOTE When the parameters for the selected Target Ch are set to NTR: Root Fixed, NTT Type: Bypass, or NTT Bass: Off, the parameters here are changed to Play Root and Play Chord, respectively. In this case, you can change chords and hear the resulting sound for all channels.

NOTE The settings here are not applied when NTR is set to Guitar.

NTR/NTT (Note Transposition Rule/Note Transposition Table)

The parameters here determine how the notes in the Source Pattern are converted according to the chord changes during your keyboard performance.

NTR Selects the Note Transposition Rule which determines how the notes in the Source Pattern are transposed according to the Chord Root change.

Root Trans When the root note is transposed, the interval between notes is maintained. For example, the notes C3, E3 and G3 in the key of C become F3, A3 and C4 when they are transposed to F. Use this setting for channels that contain melody lines.

Root Fixed The note is kept as close as possible to the previous note range. For example, the notes C3, E3 and G3 in the key of C become C3, F3 and A3 when they are transposed to F. Use this setting for channels that contain chord parts.

Guitar This is exclusively for transposing guitar accompaniment. Notes are transposed to approximate the chords played with natural guitar fingering.

Selects the Note Transposition Table which determines how the notes in the Source Pattern are transposed according to the Chord Type change.

When NTR is set to Root Trans or Root Fixed:

Bypass When NTR is set to Root Fixed, the transposition table used does not do any note conversion. When NTR is set to Root Trans, the table used only converts the notes by maintaining the pitch relationship between notes.

Melody Suitable for melody line transposition. Use this for melody channels such as Phrase1 and Phrase2.

Chord Suitable for chordal parts transposition. Use this for the Chord1 and Chord2 channels, especially when they contain piano or guitar-like chordal parts.

Melodic Minor

When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third interval in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor third interval is raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for melody channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor chords, such as Intros and Endings.

Melodic Minor 5th

In addition to the Melodic Minor transposition above, augmented and diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source Pattern.

Harmonic Minor

When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third and sixth intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor third and flatted sixth intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond only to major/minor chords, such as Intros and Endings.

Harmonic Minor 5th

In addition to the Harmonic Minor transposition above, augmented and diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.

Natural Minor

When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third, sixth and seventh intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor third, flatted sixth and flatted seventh intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond only to a Major/minor chord such as Intros and Endings.

Natural Minor 5th

In addition to the Natural Minor transposition above, augmented and diminished chords affect the 5th note of the Source pattern.

Dorian When the played chord changes from a major to a minor chord, this table lowers the third and seventh intervals in the scale by a semitone. When the chord changes from a minor to a major chord, the minor third and flatted seventh intervals are raised by a semitone. Other notes are not changed. Use this for chord channels of Sections which respond only to a Major/minor chord such as Intros and Endings.

When NTR is set to Guitar:

All Purpose This table covers both stroke- and arpeggio-played sound.

Stroke Suitable for stroke-played sound of the guitar. Some notes may sound as if they are muted this is normal condition when the chord is played on guitar by stroke.

CVP-609/605 Reference Manual 57

Creating/Editing Styles (Style Creator)

NTR/NTT (Note Transposition Rule/Note Transposition Table)

NTT Type

Arpeggio Suitable for arpeggio-played sound of the guitar, resulting in beautiful four-note arpeggio sounds.

NTT Bass

The channel for which this is set to On will be played back by the bass root note, when the on-bass chord is recognized by the instrument. When NTR is set to Guitar and this parameter is set to On, only the note which is assigned to bass will be played back by the bass root note.

NTR/NTT Settings for the Rhythm Channels Since the Rhythm channels should not be affected by Chord change, make sure to make the following settings. NTR = Root Fixed NTT = Bypass NTT Bass = Off With the above settings, the Source Root and Source Chord parameters are changed to Play Root and Play Chord, respectively.

High Key/Note Limit

Adjusts the Octave of the notes converted via the NTT and NTR.

High Key This sets the highest key (upper octave limit) of the note transposition for the chord root change. Any notes calculated to be higher than the highest key are transposed down to the next lowest octave. This setting is available only when the NTR parameter (page 56) is set to Root Trans.

Note Limit Low These set the note range (highest and lowest notes) for Voices recorded to the Style channels. By judicious setting of this range, you can ensure that the Voices sound as realistic as possible in other words, that no notes outside the natural range are sounded (e.g., high bass sounds or low piccolo sounds).

Note Limit High

RTR (Retrigger Rule)

These settings determine whether notes stop sounding or not and how they change pitch in response to chord changes.

Stop The notes stop sounding.

Pitch Shift The pitch of the note will bend without a new attack to match the type of the new chord.

Pitch Shift to Root The pitch of the note will bend without a new attack to match the root of the new chord.

Retrigger The note is retriggered with a new attack at a new pitch corresponding to the next chord.

Retrigger to Root The note is retriggered with a new attack at the root note of the next chord. However, the octave of the new note remains the same.

Channel Edit Editing Channel Data with a Single Touch

Target Ch Select the target channel to be edited.

Quantize The Quantize function allows you to align the timing of all the notes in a channel. For example, if you record the musical phrase shown below, you may not play it with absolute precision, and your performance may have been slightly ahead of or behind the precise timing. Quantize is a convenient way of correcting for this.

Size Selects the quantize size (resolution). For optimum results, you should set the Quantize size to the shortest note value in the channel. For example, if eighth notes are the shortest in the channel, you should use eighth note as the Quantize size.

Settings:

The three Quantize settings marked with asterisks (*) are exceptionally convenient, since they allow you to quantize two different note values at the same time. For example, when the straight eighth notes and eighth notes triplet are contained in the same channel, if you quantize by the straight eighth notes, all notes in the channel are quantized to straight eighth notes completely eliminating any triplet feel. However, if you use the eighth note + eighth note triplet setting, both the straight and triplet notes will be quantized correctly.

CVP-609/605 Reference Manual 69

Creating/Editing MIDI Songs (Song Creator)

Quantize Strength Determines how strongly the notes will be quantized. A setting of 100% produces exact timing. If a value less than 100% is selected, notes will be moved toward the specified quantization beats according to the specified percentage. Applying less than 100% quantization lets you preserve some of the human feel in the recording.

Delete You can delete the data of the specified channel in the Song. Checkmark the desired channel whose data you wish to delete by touching, then touch [Execute] to actually delete the data.

Mix This function lets you mix the data of two channels and place the results in a different channel. It also lets you copy the data from one channel to another.

Source 1 Ch Determines the MIDI channel (1 16) to be mixed. All MIDI events of the channel specified here are copied to the destination channel.

Source 2 Ch Determines the MIDI channel (1 16) to be mixed. Only note events of the channel specified here are copied to the destination channel. Besides the values 1 16, there is a Copy setting that allows you to copy the data from Source 1 to the destination channel.

Destination Ch

Determines the channel into which the mix or copy results will be placed.

Transpose This allows you to transpose the recorded data of individual channels up or down by a maximum of two octaves in semitone increments.

1-16 Sets the Transpose value for each channel.

All - Decreases the Transpose value for all channels by 1.

All + Increases the Transpose value for all channels by 1.

NOTE Make sure not to transpose channels 9 and 10. In general, Drum kits are assigned to these channels. If you transpose the channels of Drum kits, the instruments assigned to each key will be changed.

Setup The current settings of the Mixer display and other panel settings can be recorded to the top position of the Song as the Setup data. The Mixer and panel settings recorded here are automatically recalled when the Song starts. Checkmark the items of playback features and functions that you wish to automatically be called up along with the selected Song.

MegaVoice

These Voices make special use of velocity switching. Normal Voices use velocity switching, too to change the sound quality and/or level of a Voice according to how strongly or softly you play it. This makes the Voice sound authentic and natural. With MegaVoices, however, each velocity range (the measure of your playing strength) has a completely different sound. For example, a guitar MegaVoice includes the sounds of various performance techniques. In conventional instruments, different Voices having those sounds would be called up via MIDI and played in combination to achieve the desired effect. However, now with MegaVoices, a convincing guitar part can be played with just a single Voice, using specific velocity values to play the desired sounds. Because of the complex nature of these Voices and the precise velocities need to play the sounds, theyre not intended for playing from the keyboard. They are, however, very useful and convenient when creating MIDI data especially when you want to avoid using several different Voices just for a single instrument part. Actual sound maps for the MegaVoices are given in the separate Data List booklet. NOTE MegaVoices are not compatible with other models. Any Song or Style data youve

created on this instrument using the MegaVoices will not sound properly when played back on other instruments which do not feature the same MegaVoices.

NOTE MegaVoices will sound differently depending on the keyboard range, velocity, touch, etc. Hence, if you apply the Keyboard Harmony effect, change the transpose setting or change the Voice Set parameters, unexpected or undesired sounds may result.

Regular Other Voices including GM Voices and XG Voices.

Converting the Voices of a MIDI Song to MegaVoices (MEGAEnhancer) MEGAEnhancer is a software program that converts XG/GM song data (Standard MIDI File) to Song data specially enhanced to be played back using an instrument or tone generator containing MegaVoices. With the use of the sophisticated MegaVoices, MEGAEnhancer automatically makes conventional Song files with guitar and bass parts sound much more realistic and authentic. MEGAEnhancer can be downloaded from the following website.

Display Tempo Turns on or off the tempo indication for each Style on the Style Selection display.

Stop ACMP When the [ACMP ON/OFF] button is on, [SYNC START] is off, and this parameter is set to the value other than Disabled, you can play chords in the chord section of the keyboard with the Style stopped, and still hear the accompaniment chord. In this condition called Stop Accompaniment any valid chord fingerings are recognized and the chord root/type are shown in the Style area of the Home display. Here, you can determine whether the chord played in the chord section will sound or not in the Stop Accompaniment status. Disabled: Disables the Stop Accompaniment feature. When Style playback is stopped,

any pressed notes in the chord section of the keyboard will not be recognized as chords. Off: The chord played in the chord section will not sound. Style: The chord played in the chord section will sound via the Voices for the Pad part

and the Bass channel of the selected Style. Fixed: The chord played in the chord section will sound via the specified Voice,

regardless of the selected Style. NOTE When the selected Style contains MegaVoices, unexpected sounds may result when this

is set to Style.

NOTE If you record a Song using the Stop Accompaniment, both the Voice that is sounded and the chord data will be recorded when set to Style, and only the chord data will be recorded when set to Off or Fixed.

NOTE When this is set to Disabled, chords are not recognized while the Style is stopped. This is why both Vocal Harmony (with the Chordal mode) and Keyboard Harmony are not applied even if you play a chord in the chord section of the keyboard while the Style is stopped.

Synchro Stop Window This determines how long you can hold a chord before the Synchro Stop function is automatically cancelled. When the [SYNC STOP] button is turned on and this is set to a value other than Off, this is automatically cancels the Synchro Stop function if you hold a chord for longer than the time set here. This conveniently resets Style playback control to normal, letting you release the keys and still have the Style play. In other words, if you release the keys sooner than the time set here, the Synchro Stop function works.

Style Touch Response Turns touch response for the Style playback on/off. When this is set to On, the Style volume changes in response to your playing strength in the chord section of the keyboard.

Change Behavior

Section Set Determines the default section that is automatically called up when selecting different Styles (when Style playback is stopped). When set to Off and Style playback is stopped, the active section is maintained even if the different Style is selected. When any of the MAIN AD sections is not included in the Style data, the nearest Section is automatically selected. For example, when MAIN D is not contained in the selected Style, MAIN C will be called up.

Tempo This determines whether the tempo changes or not when you change the Style. Lock: Regardless of playback status, the tempo setting of the previous Style is

maintained. Hold: While the Style is playing back, the tempo setting of the previous Style is

maintained. While the Style is stopped, the tempo changes to that of the default tempo of the selected Style.

Reset: Regardless of playback status, the tempo changes to that of the default tempo for the selected Style.

Style Playback Related Settings

Style Characteristics On the Style Selection display, icons defining the Style characteristics are indicated at left of the Style name.

Pro: These Styles provide professional and exciting arrangements combined with perfect playability. The resulting accompaniment exactly follows the chords of the player. As a result, your chord changes and colorful harmonies are instantly transformed into lifelike musical accompaniment.

Session: These Styles provide even greater realism and authentic backing by mixing in original chord types and changes, as well as special riffs with chord changes, with the Main sections. These have been programmed to add spice and a professional touch to your performances of certain songs and in certain genres. Keep in mind, however, that the Styles may not necessarily be appropriate or even harmonically correct for all songs and for all chord playing. In some cases for example, playing a simple major triad for a country song may result in a jazzy seventh chord, or playing an on-bass chord may result in inappropriate or unexpected accompaniment.

Free Play: These Styles are characterized by rubato performance. You can perform freely with remarkably expressive accompaniment without being constrained by a strict tempo.

Pianist: These special Styles provide piano-only accompaniment. Just by playing the proper chords with your left hand, you can automatically add complicated, professional-sounding arpeggios and bass/chord patterns.

Fine Tuning the Pitch

1 Select the desired Scale type (temperament). You can select one of various scales for playing in custom tunings for specific historical periods or music genres.

2 Change the following settings as necessary.

To store the Scale Tune settings: If you want to store the Scale Tune settings, use the Registration Memory. Press the REGISTRATION MEMORY [MEMORY] button, then checkmark Scale Tune and press one of the REGISTRATION MEMORY [1] [8] buttons to register the Scale Tune settings.

Type Equal: The pitch range of each octave is divided equally into twelve parts, with each half- step evenly spaced in pitch. This is the most commonly used tuning in music today.

Pure Major, Pure Minor: These tunings preserve the pure mathematical intervals of each scale, especially for triad chords (root, third, fifth). You can hear this best in actual vocal harmonies such as choirs and a cappella singing.

Pythagorean: This scale was devised by the famous Greek philosopher and is created from a series of perfect fifths, which are collapsed into a single octave. The 3rd in this tuning are slightly unstable, but the 4th and 5th are beautiful and suitable for some leads.

Mean-Tone: This scale was created as an improvement on the Pythagorean scale, by making the major third interval more in tune. It was especially popular from the 16th century to the 18th century. Handel, among others, used this scale.

Werckmeister, Kirnberger: This composite scale combines the Werckmeister and Kirnberger systems, which were themselves improvements on the mean-tone and Pythagorean scales. The main feature of this scale is that each key has its own unique character. The scale was used extensively during the time of Bach and Beethoven, and even now it is often used when performing period music on the harpsichord.

Arabic1, Arabic2: Use these tunings when playing Arabic music.

Base Note Determines the base note for each scale. When the base note is changed, the pitch of the keyboard is transposed, yet maintains the original pitch relationship between the notes.

Tune [cent] Select the desired note to be tuned and tune it in cents. If you edit this parameter, (Edited) is shown at the right of Type in step 1. NOTE In musical terms a cent is 1/100th of a semitone. (100 cents equal one semitone.)

(Parts) Checkmark the part to which the Scale Tune setting is applied.

Master KBD (Master Keyboard)

In this setting, the instrument functions as a master keyboard, playing and controlling one or more connected tone generators or other devices (such as a computer/sequencer).

Song With this setting, only the Song channels 1 16 are transmitted from this instrument via the corresponding channel numbers 1 16 respectively. This is used to play Song data with an external tone generator and to record Song data to an external sequencer.

Clock Ext (Clock External)

Playback or recording (Song, Style, etc.) synchronizes with an external MIDI clock instead of the instruments internal clock. This template should be used when you wish to set the tempo on the MIDI device connected to the instrument.

MIDI Accord1 (MIDI Accordion 1)

MIDI accordions allow you to transmit MIDI data and play connected tone generators from the keyboard and bass/chord buttons of the accordion. This template lets you control the keyboard performance and Style playback from the MIDI Accordion.

MIDI Accord2 (MIDI Accordion 2)

Basically the same as MIDI Accord1 above, with the exception that the chord/bass notes you play with your left hand on the MIDI Accordion are recognized also as MIDI note events.

MIDI Pedal1 MIDI pedal units allow you play connected tone generators with your feet (especially convenient for playing single note bass parts). This template lets you play/control the chord root in Style playback with a MIDI pedal unit.

MIDI Pedal2 This template lets you play the bass part for Style playback by using a MIDI pedal unit.

MIDI OFF No MIDI signals are sent or received.

System MIDI System Related Settings

Clock Determines whether the instrument is controlled by its own internal clock (Internal) or a MIDI clock (MIDI, USB1, USB2, and Wireless LAN) received from an external device. Internal is the normal Clock setting when the instrument is being used alone or as a master keyboard to control external devices. If you are using the instrument with an external sequencer, MIDI computer, or other MIDI device, and you want to synchronize it to that device, set this parameter to the appropriate setting: MIDI, USB 1, USB 2, or Wireless LAN. In this case, make sure that the external device is connected properly (e.g., to the instruments MIDI IN terminal), and that it is properly transmitting a MIDI clock signal. When this is set for control by an external device (MIDI, USB1, USB2, or Wireless LAN), the Tempo is indicated as Ext. in the Tempo display. NOTE If the Clock is set other than Internal, the Style, Song, Metronome and Tempo cannot be

controlled by the buttons on this instrument.

NOTE Wireless LAN is shown only when the USB Wireless LAN adaptor is connected to this instrument.

Transmit Clock Turns MIDI clock (F8) transmission on or off. When set to Off, no MIDI clock or Start/ Stop data is transmitted even if a Song or Style is played back.

Transpose MIDI Input

Determines whether or not the instruments transpose setting is applied to the note events received from the external device via MIDI.

Start/Stop Determines whether incoming FA (start) and FC (stop) messages affect Song or Style playback.

CVP-609/605 Reference Manual 89

MIDI Settings

The explanations here apply when you call up Transmit display in step 2 on page 88. This determines which MIDI channel is used for each part when the MIDI data is transmitted from this instrument.

1 For each Part, select the MIDI Transmit Channel with which the MIDI data of the corresponding Part is to be transmitted. With the exception of the two parts below, the configuration of the parts is the same as those already explained elsewhere in the Owners Manual.

Upper: A keyboard part played on the right side of the keyboard from the Left Split Point.

Lower: A keyboard part played on the left side of the keyboard from the Left Split Point. This is not affected by the on/off status of the [ACMP ON/OFF] button.

NOTE If the same transmit channel is assigned to several different parts, the transmitted MIDI messages are merged to a single channel resulting in unexpected sounds and possible glitches in the connected MIDI device.

NOTE Protected Songs cannot be transmitted even if the proper Song channels 1 16 are set to be transmitted.

Local Control Turns the Local Control for each part on or off. When Local Control is set to On, the keyboard of the instrument controls its own (local) internal tone generator, allowing the internal Voices to be played directly from the keyboard. If you set Local to Off, the keyboard and controllers are internally disconnected from the instruments tone generator section so that no sound is output when you play the keyboard or use the controllers. For example, this allows you to use an external MIDI sequencer to play the instruments internal Voices, and use the instrument keyboard to record notes to the external sequencer and/or play an external tone generator.

System Exclusive Message

Transmit Determines whether the MIDI System Exclusive message is transmitted (On) or not (Off) from this instrument.
