DR-3: Using Total Sound Control

Tags: dr-3
“TSC,” short for “Total Sound Control,” is a feature that lets you change the DR-3’s sound. TSC includes two types of effects. Sound Shape changes the overall tone of the sound. Ambience creates the simulated physical space in which the sound plays. Use the following procedure to experiment with the TSC functions:

1. With playback stopped, press MANU or AUTO so it’s lit.

2. Turn the VALUE dial to scroll through and select one of the various preset styles.

3. Press INTRO/START to start the performance.

4. Press SOUND SHAPE so it’s not lit.

5. Turn the VALUE dial to select a Sound Shape effect.

6. Press SOUND SHAPE so it’s lit to apply the Sound Shape effect you’ve selected.

7. Press EXIT to return to the previous screen.

8. Press AMBIENCE.

9. Turn the VALUE dial to select an Ambience effect.

10. Press AMBIENCE so it’s lit to apply the Ambience effect you’ve selected.

11. Press EXIT to return to the previous screen.
