Keyboard mode allows the x0xb0x to act like a monophonic MIDI keyboard. Its also useful for quickly trying out melodies before writing out a pattern.
|To enter keyboard mode, turn the function knob to Keyboard|
|Notes are generated whenever you press one of the 13 notekeys. You can slide between notes by pressing a new notekey without releasing the old one.|
|Notes can be accented by pressing the ACCENT key. When accent is on, the accent LED will be lit.|
|You can shift up or down an octave by pressing the UP or DOWN keys.|
Every time a notekey is pressed, a corresponding MIDI "Note On" signal is sent. Every time a notekey is released, the corresponding "Note Off" message is sent. Accented notes have the maximum MIDI velocity value.
|The current MIDI address (1 through 15) is displayed on the strip of 16 LEDs. You can change the MIDI address by turning the bank knob.|
