Korg Z3 Features & Specifications
The Z3 Guitar Synthesizer is an remarkably sophisticated device designed to bring the guitar player into the advanced world of digital music. With the aid of the ZD3 Guitar Synthesizer Driver, any 6-string electric guitar can be used to play, with accurate expression and instant response, the synthesized sounds of the Z3.
The Z3 Guitar Synthesizer features:
The Z3 is equipped with a built-in tuner for matching the tuning of the guitar to the internal sound source of the Z3. Whether the Z3's operation is in Mode A or Mode B, the tuner function can be used by pressing the TUNER key. The LED of the key will light up and the following display will appear:
Set the standard pitch by using the INCREMENT/DECREMENT keys.
The STRING SELECT LED corresponding to the string which was last played will be lit up.
All operations and functions of the Z3 Guitar Synthesizer can be grouped into one of two conditions: PLAY or EDIT. In PLAY, of course, the sounds, functions and settings of the Z3 can be used "as is"; in EDIT, they can be changed.
Mode A is the basic playing mode of the Z3 Guitar Synthesizer, and in it only the PLAY condition is possible. It is the simpler of the two modes included on this instrument, and initially, until you become more familiar with the capabilities of the Z3, you probably won't need to stray from Mode A.
NOTE: When you turn the power on, the currently selected mode, A or B, will be shown on the display for a couple of seconds.
SETTING OPERATION OF THE Z3 TO MODE A
As delivered from the factory, your Z3 Guitar Synthesizer has been set to operate in Mode A. If or when the Z3 is not set to Mode A, here's what to do:
Mode B lets you access the various editing and patch creation features of the Z3.
SWITCHES THAT DO NOT FUNCTION IN MODE B
Performance functions of the Z3 are set for each string in Mode B as part of the programs; as a result, no real time on/off switching of these individual functions can be done and the following switches are inactive:
The OCTAVE DOWN and UP keys are used in this mode for parameter selection. All other switches and functions are active as normal.
ENTERING THE EDIT MODE
The Edit Mode is a sub-mode of Mode B. In other words, to use the Edit Mode, the Z3's operation must be switched (after turning the power off) to Mode B.
