50 MOTIF Basic Structure
■Using several sources to control one
Continuing from the example above, now create
another Control Set where Src is set to FC (Foot
Controller) and Dest is set to ELFO-PM (Element LFO
Pitch Modulation Depth). Again, specify the Element
to be controlled and also the depth of control.
Now, Pitch Modulation is assigned to both the
Modulation Wheel and Foot Controller. In other
words, you can also assign several Src controllers to
each Dest parameter.
By assigning all six Control Sets, you will have a
stunning degree of real-time control over the
■Control Sets and External MIDI Control
In a Control Set, the controllers are assigned to the
internal parameters of the synthesizer. However, some
controllers were originally designed for a particular
purpose, and send pre-deﬁned MIDI Control Change
messages when used, regardless of their Control Set
allocations within the synthesizer.
For example, the Pitch Bend Wheel, Modulation Wheel
and keyboard aftertouch were originally designed to
control pitch bend, modulation and aftertouch.
Therefore, when you use these controllers, pitch bend,
modulation and aftertouch information is always sent
to the MIDI Out.
Let’s say the Pan parameter is assigned to the Pitch
Bend Wheel in a Control Set. Now, when you move the
Pitch Bend Wheel, the internal tone generator of the
synthesizer will pan the sound; however, at the same
time, the original pre-deﬁned Pitch Bend messages will
still be sent to the MIDI Out.
The controllers can also send MIDI Control Change
messages to control the parameters of external MIDI
devices. These assignments can be set in the Utility
nSince Pitch Bend Wheel, Modulation Wheel and
keyboard aftertouch are pre-deﬁned with speciﬁc MIDI
controls, other MIDI Control Change numbers cannot be
assigned to them.
You can also set up a controller such that it sends one
kind of Control message to the synthesizer’s internal
tone generator yet another kind to the MIDI Out.
For example, in a Control Set you could assign
resonance to Assignable Knob . Then, in the Utility
Mode, you could assign Control Change Number 1
(Modulation) to the same knob. Now, when you turn
the knob, resonance will be applied to the sound of the
internal tone generator; however, at the same time,
modulation information will be sent to the external
MIDI device connected to the MIDI Out.
