   (0 reviews)

Internal Voices

The DX9 has a 20-Voice internal memory, while an external cassette tape recorder may be interfaced to provide for Voice library capabilities.

Create Voices

Microcomputer programming control makes it possible to edit existing voices to change their character, or to produce entirely new Voices. New Voices can also be created "from scratch."

Voice Storage

Edited or new Voices can be stored either in the instrument's internal memory, or onto an optional external cassette tape recorder.

Memory Select-Play Mode

This is the normal performance mode, and the mode in which pre-programmed voices can be selected.

Function Mode

Function Mode permits the setting of parameters pertaining to the effects of the controllers (including the modulation wheel and breath controller) and is also used for loading and saving data.

Edit Mode

Edit Mode permits editing of existing Voice data and the creation of entirely new Voices.

Store Mode

Using Store Mode, edited or newly created Voices can be saved into memory.
