For playing single manaul. Alternatively, you may layer programs in this way and set different portamento rates for each one so that they all slide around at different speeds! Because it is felt tliat LF01 will mostly be used for vibrato effects, the default in the PTCH page see later is set so that simply setting a value in the dept h: The default here is slow as it is assumed you will want mnual use this LFO for such things as filter sweeps and slow panning effects, etc.

If you intend to use LF01 for something other than vibrato i. We are the first to admit that this kind of modulation is not that useful when trying to accurately recreate the sound of a Gamelan orchestra but, when the need arises to create that special sound or when your synthesiser just isn’t up to it, the XL will oblige you willingly – in fact, you may get so used to the XL’s versatility as a synthesiser that some of your current synth s may be in the classifieds sooner than you think!

In this way, you may have sets of programs for each song recalled from a MIDI program change from your sequencer this is one advantage of using this method over MULTI – you may only have one multi file in memory at any one time. This allows you to set the send level of the take to the effects channel selected in the field.

Basically, there are pros and cons to both methods – it’s up to you to decide which you want to use depending on your application.

Layering two programs and setting the modulation amounts to opposite values can also yield some interesting panning aoai. This function may also be used to emulate the characteristics of older drum machines.

It can be inverted at the modulation input stages of each destination to give downward sweeps. In the SXL, we always use another program as the basis for a new one. As an example, you could have five stereo string samples each sampled at G on every octave which could be assigned into such a program. The options available to you are: However, if for the purposes of the guitar sound, you add distortion and EQ and change the chorus to a flange setting, if there is another program in memory that uses that effect preset for example, a strings programit too will be affected.

Page 69 We will now look at the functions of these pages. Re-sampling This is done automatically for you and this field is not accessible. As with all control inputs on the SXL, any combination of controllers can be mixed together.

Env2 – Shaping The Filter This will set how much key position will affect both rate 2 and rate 4. External to reposition each new note according to the position of these controller.


Page If no floppy disk is in the drive, you will be prompted: Once you have set the start and end points, press F8 – – to discard the unwanted audio either side of the start and end point.

Using this, any modulation source may be routed to virtually any control input. Similarly, if you do not like synthesisers and prefer instead to use the SXL for the reproduction of high quality samples of acoustic instruments again, you need not concern yourself with these functions. For setting parameters that affect the sampler as a whole plus access to utilities such as DAT backup, MIDI song file play and hard disk recording For saving programs, samples, multis, effects and operating systems, etc.
