• Hold
Determines whether the Arpeggio playback is “held” or
not. When this is set to “on,” the Arpeggio cycles
automatically, even if you release your fingers from the
keys, and it continues to cycle until the next key is pressed.
Settings sync-off (see below), off, on
The first time you press a key, the first note of the
arpeggiator pattern is played. From the second and
subsequent key presses, the arpeggiator note that is
played back depends on the arpeggiator tempo and the
timing of the arpeggio pattern. For example, in the case
of a 1-bar arpeggio pattern, if the second key press falls
on the third beat of the bar, the arpeggio pattern plays
back from the third beat onward. In other words, the
first key press is used to start the arpeggio pattern and
thereafter you can use the key to “mute” or “un-mute”
the pattern by, respectively, holding it down or
releasing it. This is particularly useful when the
arpeggiator is being used to generate drum patterns.
Determines how the Arpeggio plays back when playing the
keyboard. Three modes are available.
Settings sort, thru, direct
Plays back notes in ascending order from the lowest
key pressed to the highest.
Plays back notes in the order in which the keys are
Plays back the notes exactly as you play them. If
changes to Voice parameters (such as Pan or Cutoff
frequency) are included in the Arpeggio sequence data,
they will be applied and reproduced whenever the
Arpeggio plays back.
nIf the Arpeggio Category is set to Ct, you will not
hear any sounds unless you select “direct” here.
nWith the “sort” and “thru” settings, the order in
which notes are played back will depend on the
Arpeggio sequence data.
This determines the playback velocity of the Arpeggio, or
how it responds to your own playing strength. Two modes
are available: original and thru.
Settings original, thru
The Arpeggio plays back at the preset velocities.
The Arpeggio plays back according to the velocity of
your playing. For example, if you play the notes
strongly, the playback volume of the Arpeggio

Arpeggio limit
• Note Limit
Determines the lowest and highest notes in the Arpeggio’s
note range. Notes played in this range trigger the Arpeggio.
Settings C -2 ~ G8
nYou can also create a lower and an upper trigger
range for the Arpeggio, with a “hole” in the middle,
by specifying the highest note first. For example,
setting a Note Limit of “C5 -C4” lets you trigger the
Arpeggio by playing notes in the two ranges of C -2
to C4 and C5 to G8; notes played between C4 and
C5 have no effect on the Arpeggio.
nYou can also set the range directly from the
keyboard, by holding down the [INFORMATION]
button and pressing the desired low and high keys.
•Velocity Limit
Determines the lowest and highest velocity in the
Arpeggio’s velocity range. This lets you control when the
Arpeggio sounds by your playing strength.
Settings 1 ~ 127
nYou can also create separate low and high trigger
ranges for the Arpeggio playback, with a velocity
hole in the middle, by specifying the maximum
value first. For example, setting a Velocity Limit of
93 - 34 lets you play the Arpeggio from two
separate velocity ranges: soft (1 - 34) and hard (93 -
127). Notes played at middle velocities between 35
and 92 do not play the Arpeggio.

Play FX (Effect)
These Play Effect parameters let you control the
playback of the Arpeggio in useful and interesting
ways. By changing the timing and velocity of the
notes, you can change the rhythmic “feel” of the
• Unit
Adjust the Arpeggio playback time. For example, if you set
a value of 200%, the playback time will be doubled and the
tempo halved. On the other hand, if you set a value of
50%, the playback time will be halved and the tempo
doubled. Normal playback time is 100%.
Settings 50%, 66%, 75%, 100%, 133%, 150%,
