RS-70: Using the D Beam Controller

Tags: rs-70
The three buttons directly below the D Beam lens select what the D Beam does—here’s how they work.

Solo Synth
1. Press SOLO SYNTH (under the D Beam) so it’s lit.

2. Hold down several notes on the keyboard—notice they don’t yet sound—and then move your hand over the D Beam. The notes you’re holding down play according to your hand movements.

Active Expression
1. Press ACTIVE EXP so it’s lit.

2. Hold down several notes on the keyboard and move your hand over the D Beam. The volume of the notes you’re holding down varies according to your hand movements.

Assignable
1. Press ASSIGNABLE so it’s lit.

2. Play the keyboard and move your hand over the D Beam. The currently assigned effect is heard.

3. Use the VALUE -/+ buttons to select the desired effect. This setting is automatically remembered the next time you activate ASSIGNABLE.
