XV-5080: Setting a Patch to Sound the Same in Performance Mode

Tags: effects,xv-5080
A Patch can be routed through a MFX processor, a Reverb processor and a Chorus processor. These effects can contribute significantly to the overall sound. Assigning a Patch to a Performance can make the Patch sound quite different. This is because a Performance can use up to 32 different Patches on 32 Parts at once. Each of these Parts and Patches must share the same effects processors with all the other Parts and Patches in the Performance. This causes the Patches to lose their specific Patch effects settings, thereby making them sound different.

You can however select a single Part in a Performance to control the settings for one of the MFX Processors plus the settings for the Reverb processor and Chorus Processor. This Part becomes the "SOURCE" for each Processor, causing the effects settings of the Patch to be copied to the Performance. This Patch will now sound like it does when in Patch Mode.

Use the following procedure to make the Patch on Part 1 of a Performance sound the same as it does in Patch mode:

1. Press PERFORM.

2. Use the VALUE dial to select "PRA: 01 Seq:Template."

3. Press F5 [Effects].

4. Use the PART SELECT buttons to select "Part 1."

5. Use the CURSOR buttons and VALUE dial to set "Output" to "PAT A."

6. Use the CURSOR buttons to select the "Source" for the chorus "Cho:" processor at the center top portion of the display.

7. Use the VALUE dial to set "Cho:PRF" to "Cho:P 1."

8. CURSOR right to select the "Source" for the reverb "Rev:" processor.

9. Use the VALUE dial to set "Rev:PRF" to "Rev:P 1."

10. CURSOR to the "Part Chorus Send Level" and use the VALUE Dial to set the level to "127."

11. CURSOR Down to the "Part Reverb Send Level" and use the VALUE Dial to set the level to "127."

12. Press F1 [General] to display "PERFORMANCE Effects General #2."

13. Use the CURSOR buttons and VALUE Dial to set the "Source" for "MFX-A" to "Part 1."

14. Press PERFORM to return to the Performance Play screen.

The Patch you select on Part One will now have it's related MFX settings and will sound the same in both Patch mode and Performance mode.
