Additional Functions / Functionality Improvements
  • In the operations in "Editing the Sound (TONE EDIT)," it is now possible to edit multiple parts simultaneously.
    This is also available during performances.
  • Key Transpose for a pattern input using the STEP EDIT function is now possible by keyboard operation.
  • Added the function (L / R Dual) to operate Pan of Part 1 and Part2 at the same time during Dual performance.
    ( [SHIFT] + [DUAL] )
  • A function for copying parameters between partials on Partial-equipped Models (other than Analog Synthesizers and VOCODER) has been added.
    (Display the copy-source Partial screen, then use the [SHIFT] + [WRITE] + copy-destination Partial button)
  • A screen displaying all key ranges of each part (KEY RANGE SETTINGS) has been added to the MENU screen.
    This is convenient when making settings for split sounds in combination with I-ARPEGGIO.
  • A function for assigning the number of the Scene to recall at unit startup (Startup Scene) has been added.
    ( SYSTEM > GENERAL Startup Scene )
  • A function that produces a warning so as to prevent unintended Scene changes (Scene Lock) has been added.
    ( SYSTEM > GENERAL Scene Lock )
  • In the STEP EDIT function, it is now possible to input the end point of a Tie by pressing the [SHIFT] + [1] ~ [16] buttons when the cursor is over the note where you want to input the Tie.
  • The MIDI channel can be set for each Parts.
    * Along with this specification change, "MIDI Basic Ch" has been removed from [SYSTEM].
  • A setting function (USB Audio Thru) for mixing USB Audio In with USB Audio Output has been added.
    ( SYSTEM > GENERAL USB Audio Thru )
  • A setting function (AUXIN USB Thru) for mixing AUX IN or Bluetooth into USB Audio Output has been added.
  • A key lock function has been added to the [ PART ] button.
    Pressing and holding the [ PART ] button makes the button flash and engages Key Locking.
    The operation while pressing the [PART] button can be operated by releasing the [PART] button.
Removed Function
  • The function for setting KEY TRANSPOSE using the keyboard while holding down the [ TRANSPOSE ] button has been removed.
    * This avoids unintended changes in the KEY TRANSPOSE value when working with the [ TRANSPOSE ] button.
Tone Fixes
  • The tones produced when the [UNISON] button is set to "on" while using an Analog Synthesizer MODEL were not as intended; this has been corrected.
    In connection with this, the parameter that changes when the [UNISON] and [MONO] buttons are pressed has been changed from "PART" to "TONE."
  • For RD-PIANO's Preset Tones, the changes in tone due to the intensity of velocity have been adjusted.
  • The Controller Assign settings for some preset scenes have been revised.
    (The JUPITER-X is updated with the revised settings when the operation in "Returning to the Factory Settings (Factory Reset)" is carried out.)
    * Returning settings to their factory-default value initializes all settings. Before returning the unit to its factory defaults, be sure to use the backup function to save the current settings.
