CATEGORY SEARCH: The 8 category buttons here let you see all the different voices once you have selected a category. Use the data wheel or [INC / DEC] buttons alongside it to select a new voice. Press [EXIT] to get back to the main screen.
DUAL : If you want to layer two sounds on top of one another press [DUAL]. Press and release and the last stored dual voice will be playable. Holding down the [DUAL] button for a few seconds and the voice list appears. Use the Category Search buttons to choose the voice you’d like to layer. A page under the [EDIT] button lets you alter MAIN and DUAL voice volumes. To de-activate the Dual-Voice feature, press [DUAL] again and the layer will be removed.
SPLIT: If you want to split two sounds across the keyboard press [SPLIT]. Press and release and the last stored split voice will be playable. Hold down the [SPLIT] button for a few seconds and the voice list appears. Use the Category Search buttons to choose the voice you’d like to add to the lower keyboard range. Pages within [EDIT] let you alter MAIN, DUAL, and SPLIT voice volumes. To de-activate the split-voice feature, press [SPLIT] again and the split will be removed. The Split Point page in [UTILITY] lets you change the split point.
STORE: You can store a lot of things in the MM6/8: tweaks to a voice, effects, custom combinations of voices, etc. and these are all stored in PERFORMANCE MEMORY.
To store any of these changes, press [STORE] followed by one of the Performance Memory buttons. A screen prompt will tell you not to switch off during the storing process.
[PERFORMANCE BANK INC & DEC] There are 64 Performance Memories. Use these buttons to step through the 8 Banks. Press [EXIT] after changing Banks to get back to the main screen.
[EXIT] This button is your friend! It’ll always take you back to the main screen after you’ve made a new bank or sound selection etc.
[EDIT] This button reveals several pages of simple but powerful things you can do to customize sounds and effects. Use the [CATEGORY INC / DEC] buttons to step through the pages, and the data wheel (or the INC / DEC buttons alongside the data wheel) to make your adjustments.
If you like what you’ve edited and want to save that setting, press [STORE] and then select a free Performance Memory.
[UTILITY ] This button reveals several pages of controls that govern the MM6/8 as a whole. Initially, the pages you’ll use most are probably setting your preferred REVERB, CHORUS, and DSP type, PATTERN volume, and the fingering style you want to use (see IMPORTANT CONCEPTS list).
