XV-2020: Selecting Performances

Tags: xv-2020
A performance is any combination of up to 16 patches and rhythm kits, plus effects and MIDI settings. You can use performances to create splits and layers. You can also set up parts that respond to separate MIDI channels, for sequencing. There are 128 performances in the XV-2020—64 presets and 64 that are user-programmable. Let’s try out some cool performances that show what the XV-2020 can do with splits and layers:

1. Use a MIDI cable to connect the MIDI OUT of a MIDI controller to the MIDI IN of the XV-2020.
