Reverb Type Name
This determines the type of Reverb effect. The Reverb types are (1) Hall 1, (2) Hall 2, (3) Room 1, (4) Room 2, (5) Plate 1, (6) Plate 2, (7) Delay 1, (8) Delay 2, and (9) No Effect. This determines the overall pitch of the instrument, up or down in semitone increments. This determines the overall fine pitch setting of the instrument. This determines whether the Voice Set feature is on or off. When Voice Set is on (default), selecting a Panel Voice in the Main Voice menu automatically sets the Voice-related parameters to values that best match the selected Voice. (Voice Set includes all parameters for the Main, Dual, and Split Voices - with the exception of Split Points 1 and 2 - as well as all Harmony/Echo parameters.) This determines the degree of touch sensitivity for the keyboard (when Touch Response is on). (See page 18.) Higher values result in a wider dynamic range and give you more expressive control over the level of the Voices. The default Touch Sensitivity setting is 5. This turns the keyboard guide lamps on or off. Red lamps correspond to the white keys and green lamps to the black keys. (See page 30.) This turns the metronome function on or off. When set to on, the metronome sounds during Auto Accompaniment and Song playback.
