Sound Effects ]
For a more penetrating sound, turn up the VCLPF PEAK knob to between "7" and "9",
the point right before self-oscillation begins.
EG-2 controls the VCHPF fc. Adjust the FcM EG2/EXT knob to get the most realistic clarinet sound.
The use of pink noise for frequency modulation is important, but be careful not to increase it too much.
To get the most realistic oboe sound, carefully adjust the tone color with the VCO-1 PW knob.
A soft flute sound. Use patching to get a delayed vibrato effect.
This more complex patching procedure produces a more realistic flute sound than that of the Flute 1 setting.
The VCF is patched so that the sound becomes brighter in proportion to pitch. The tone color of the pink noise is adjusted by the ESP BPF and then used for FM.
Since the KBD CV OUT is used for VCF FcM, the tone color changes between the upper and lower ranges of the keyboard.
By adding a little portamento, the fretless effect is obtained.
Use the Korg MS-01 foot controller to vary vibrato depth and tone color.
Note that it is important to adjust the VCO-1 PW knob so that the pulse width matches that of the VCO-2 pulse waveform.
This is the sound of a bass being played with a bow. Be careful to play the keyboard to bring out this effect.
Play the keyboard so that is sounds like you are playing one string at a time.
When you press the Momentary Switch, you'll get a pitch bend and the pitch will rise. Use the FM EG-1/EXT knob to set the amount the pitch rises.
Release one key before you play the next, so that you get a staccato effect. If the EG-2 SUSTAIN knob is at "1", the sound may become inaudible if you are not careful how you play.
Press the Momentary Switch to get the rotating speaker effect. Set the VCO-2 pitch three of five degrees above that of VCO-1. In other words, if VCO-1 is "do", then set VCO-2 to "mi" or "soh".
Set the pulse width of VCO-1 PW so that it matches the width of the VCO-2 pulse waveform.
Japanese Taishogoto (a modernised version of the traditional koto)
It is important to slightly vary the pitch between VCO-1 and VCO-2.
Sharply strike the lower notes on the keyboard. Mix in the noise after adjusting tone color with the ESP BPF.
VCF self-oscillation is used as the sound source. Use the VC HPF fc knob to vary the pitch of the cow-bell.
The control wheel raises the pitch, while the KBD CV OUT is used to vary vibrato depth in proportion to pitch.
