5. Voice Editing & Effects
Page 150 … 162
The last step in programming any voice is selecting and adjusting the
effects you need to give your sound the required warmth and “spaciousness”.
Of course, you might simply want to edit the effects applied to an existing
voice, in which case this will be the only step!
The TG500 offers 90 digital effects with two high-performance internal
digital signal processors. The two effect processors can be interconnected in
several ways, providing a wide range of parallel and series processing configu-
rations. A range of programmable parameters for each effect make it possible
to customize the sound over a wide range.
8: Give Your Voice a Name
Always use the “Name” function to give any new voice an original name that
makes it easily identifiable. If you don’t change the name you’re likely to end
end up with more than one voice that has the same name … very confusing!
9: Store the Voice
Don’t forget this obvious but important step!
If you select a different voice before storing, the edited data will
be lost. Also note that any previous data in the voice memory
location you store to will be overwritten by the new data.
■ Bypassing the Effects While Editing
Since effects can alter the sound of a voice and make editing difficult, the
internal effect system can be bypassed (turned off) in the voice, performance,
and multi edit modes by pressing the [PLAY MODE] key while holding the
[UTILITY/SELECT] key. “>BYP<” will apear in the upper right corner of the
display while the [UTILITY/SELECT] key is held when the effects are by-
passed. Simply repeat this step to turn the effects back on. The effects are
automatically turned back on when you exit from the edit mode.
■ Further Possibilities …
When you’re ready to explore the many possibilities the TG500 provides
for voice programming, read through the “VOICE EDIT MODE” (page 95).
