● [F1]-[SF2] General Keyboard
From this display you can set the keyboard-related
parameters for the MOTIF.
Determines the amount in octaves by which the range of
the keyboard is shifted up or down.
Determines the amount in semitones by by which the
range of the keyboard is shifted up or down. Keep in mind
that this also affects outgoing MIDI data.
❏Settings -11~ 0 ~+11
nIf you transpose beyond the note range limits (C-2
and G8), notes in the adjacent octaves will be used.
For example, a transposed note of F9 will be
changed to F8.
• VelCurve (Velocity Curve)
This linear “curve” produces one-to-one correspondence
between the strength of your keyboard playing (velocity)
and the actual sound change. The harder you play, the
greater the sound change.
This curve provides increased response, especially for
lower velocities. In other words, playing softly results in
higher response than the “norm” curve. Use this curve if
you want greater control in the low velocity range.
This curve effectively lessens the overall response
compared to the “norm” curve. Use this curve if you tend
to play strongly and want the sound change to be less
This setting provides opposite response curves for lower
and higher velocities. It widens the apparent dynamic
range of the controller, producing less sound change in the
softer range and more change in the higher range.
This setting produces the same amount of sound change
(set in Fixed Velocity below), no matter what your playing
strength. For example, you can use this to emulate the key
response of conventional organs, or ensure that the sound
change is absolutely uniform, no matter how hard or softly
nActual velocity is output to the external MIDI
device via the MIDI or USB connector, as well as to
the internal tone generator block.
• Fixed Velocity
This parameter is only available if you select the “ﬁxed”
Velocity Curve above.
The velocity of the note you play is ﬁxed at the value set
