About the vacuum tubes Do not attempt to remove, replace or change the tubes in the EMX The tubes are not a user ser- viceable part. As you increase this level, the vacuum tubes will produce more distortion. The actual parameter being controlled will depend on the effect type.

On the EMX-1, the output of one effects processor can manjal fed to the input of another. The connection will change each time you press this, and the connection that is lit will be used.

Adjusts the cutoff frequency of the fil- ter. Part select section 1. The lower row of LEDs red indicates the posi- tion shown by the step keys length 1 through 8.

Make sure that the card indicator in the display is not lit. Set the power switch to the standby position. Press the SONG key. The SONG key will light. The display will show the current song name and number. The EMX-1 lets you create and store patterns. Each pattern con- sists of 16 parts. In addition to the sound of each part, a pattern contains effect settings and phrases, and can also record knob move- ments. You can use the dial to select from a total of patterns: You can also select patterns while the EMX-1 is playing.

The intervals at which you press the key will be detected and the tempo will be set accordingly. You can set the tempo this way even when the EMX-1 is stopped or paused.

The EMX-1 uses three types of parts, for a total of sixteen parts. Selecting a part Use the part keys to select the part that you want to edit. Drum part When you press a drum part key, the assigned sound will play and that part will be selected the part key will light. The step keys will light to indicate the trigger locations for that part within the rhythm pattern.



Adding accents to a part Specifying the accent locations electribw strength You can apply an accent volume emphasis independently to the drum parts and to the synth parts. If accent is on, notes at the accented location step will be empha- sized. You can use this to transform a straight beat rhythm by giving it a slight shuffle character. Turn the dial to set the roll type. You cannot apply a roll to note-on data from an external MIDI de- vice.

Using the arpeggiator Performing with the arpeggiator To arpeggiate a drum part 1. Select the drum part that you want to play. When you touch the ribbon controller, the selected part will begin playing automatically.

The timing of the repeated notes will vary depending on the location you touch. Octave You can change the scale that is being used when you arpeggiate a electtibe part. Editing sounds For each drum part, you can select a drum sound wave, or sample. For each synth part, you can select a synth oscillator model. You can then edit the sound of each part using the oscillator, level, and pan knobs, and the effect and amp EG keys.

Turning the knob toward the right will increase the level. Switches the operation of the amp EQ. You can choose from sixteen oscillator algorithms that include typi- cal analog synthesizer waveforms and much, much more. For details on each oscillator type, refer to the Oscillator Type List p. By adjusting this in elechribe with the cutoff frequency and resonance of the synth filter to intentionally create distortion, you can generate overtones that were not present in the original waveform.

This is a good way to make organ or bell sounds. Saw, Squ, Tri, Sin Selects the basic waveform. Name Category Manyal Keyboard E. For each pattern, you can use up to any three of the sixteen effect types.

The sound of each part can be sent to any one of the effect processors. You can also change the way in which the three effects are connected to each other, and in this way apply more than one effect to a part. Effect types The effects of the EMX-1 can be classified into the following three groups. Stereo This group includes: The sampling interval is synchronized to the number of steps in the sequencer. When the BPM changes, the length per step will also change, so the sampling interval will change together with this.

When the knob is in the center position, the pitch of the input sound will not be changed.

Turning the knob to- ward the left will lower the pitch, and toward the right will raise the pitch. Recording a phrase You can specify a synth sound or rhythm sound for each part, and record a phrase pattern for it. Use the step keys as a keyboard to record the phrase, pressing the appropriate key to enter the desired pitch at the desired time. The pattern will play back repeatedly.


You can continue recording while the REC key is lit. To record a phrase for a synth part 1. Press a step key to change the trigger setting for the corresponding location.

Each time you press a step key, the trigger will be switched alternately on lit or off dark. Electribs you change the beat, Last Step will be reset to 16 or Last Step is a function that is unique to the EMX-1; if you are playing the EMX-1 in synchronization with an external sequencer or a differ- ent model of the Electribe series, regions where you have used an irregular time signature will not be synchronized. Here’s how to change the location at which the pattern begins. This operation lets you shift the pitch of the note data i.

Press a part key to select a destination copy-destination for the part being copied the key will light. Key 7 will blink. Press the part key whose manjal you want electrribe erase. You may select more than one part at this time. Motion sequence What is a motion sequence? There are two types of motion sequence; one type for effects and one type for each of the parts. You can record a maximum of twenty-four motion sequences in each pattern. Editing motion sequence data Here’s how you can edit motion sequence data for each part or effect.

You can edit the data in units of a single step. The motion sequence you edit will return elsctribe the state prior to editing if you switch to another pattern before you write the data.

If you want to keep the edited motion sequence, execute the Write operation p. Pattern Set What is Pattern Set? Pattern Set is a function that lets you assign a favorite pattern to each of the sixteen step keys, and select these patterns by pressing the appropriate key.
