The intuitive and musical sequencer design in the TS will help you go from initial inspiration to a completely mixed song without getting in your way. TS in and get playing.
Power Insert the line cord into the line receptacle on the back of the TS 2next to the power switch 1. Plug the other end of the cable into a grounded AC outlet. The proper voltage for your TS is listed on the Serial Number label on the rear panel. Audio Outputs, but make sure nothing is plugged into the other output.
For listening through headphones, plug the phones into the rear-panel jack marked Phones. Majual you have loaded any Sampled Sounds or Sample Edits into the TS and then powered down, the display shows the following prompt: The battery that came in your TS is good for up to five years of life.
You will know when it needs replacing, because the TS will tell you so. One day you will switch the power on, and Ensonjq, provided on five High Density disks. These disks offer the largest, most accurate, responsive, and musical sampled sounds available anywhere. The following magazines offer many specific articles and columns that can provide a plethora of useful information.
Using the U1-Programs Pitch-Tables Using the TS with a Drum Machine We suggest you read this section carefully — it will help you get the most out of your TS To operate the TS in stereo, connect these outputs to two discrete channels of your mixer and pan them left and right.
Note that either of the Main Outs can be used as a mono output. If you want to listen to the main output in mono, make sure that only one of the Main Out jacks is connected.
Bank buttons labeled will select Sequencer banks. Each bank contains six sequencer locations, any of which can contain a sequence or a song, or may be blank. Note that when the sequencer is playing, you cannot enter either Sounds or Presets mode. Manuual are three different kinds of sound banks within the TS Each User RAM program bank contains six sound locations.
Each ROM program bank contains six sound locations. This segment of the display will now be underlinedtelling you that it has been selected, and can be modified.
The TS can be programmed so that the sound changes sometimes in subtle ways, sometimes radically when you play notes with one or both Patch Select buttons held down As you play the sounds in the TS, make sure you explore what these buttons do to each sound. Emsoniq MIDI instruments which currently implement pressure send and receive only channel pressure.
If you are playing such an instrument from the TS, you should set the TS to send channel pressure. We refer to these internal sounds as Programs. Sounds that were created with a sampling keyboard and are not internal—i. Bank buttons and the soft button closest to the sound name as shown previously. Selecting a Preset When you first turn the power switch on, the TS boots-up in Presets mode selecting the first preset in U This is designed to demonstrate the performance capabilities stacking, layering, splitting, etc.
Switches plugged into both Foot Switch jacks, and have four completely independent controllers.

For more information on pitch-tables, please refer to Section 8 — Understanding Programs. These ROM pitch-tables are: The octaves are stretched tuned a little sharp due to the harmonic content of the instruments in the gamelan. The currently selected System pitch-table will remain in affect even after turning the TS power off and back on.
In this way, if your music requires the same pitch-table all the time, you can simply turn on the TS and start Loading a full set of 60 pitch-tables into the TS internal memory in this way gives you the ability to select a variety of keyboard tunings in real-time while in the middle of a performance!
The default sound in ROM will be selected. Exclusive messages are always sent and received on the base channel. The effect of setting the base channel varies depending on the MIDI Mode and whether data is being sent or received. This mode is useful when you are only using a few instruments, and you are not concerned with setting up different channels for each device.
Suppose for example, you are playing the TS from a keyboard with a breath controller or want to use a breath controller as a modulator when playing the TS keyboard. Receiving MIDI Program Changes The way in which the TS receives program changes is slightly more complex than some other systems, because of the large number of programs and presets that are available to be selected from MIDI program changes.
Change number for the desired sound will select the new sound and also install the effect from that sound into the sequence or song effect. This can be useful when controlling the TS from an external sequencer. A preset also has one Effects algorithm which is common to all three tracks. The most common context for the TS to be in is Preset mode.
Unless the TS is in Sequencer mode, you may assume that you are in a preset. Aside from the presets that are saved, there is a preset buffer that is always active.
Whenever you are selecting or layering sounds in Sounds mode, you are also creating a preset. The settings of all performance parameters on sequencer tracks are saved for each track while the power to the TS is off, and are always available. The buttons which control the pages containing these parameters are found in the Track Parameters section of the front panel to the right of the display.
If you want to give the preset a new name, do so at this time. This is important to remember when you use User RAM programs in presets.

The display should look like this: Its LED gs be lit. This is easy to set up on the TS by layering the two sounds and assigning them maunal key zones. In sequencer mode, the MIX page has a special function which allows you to click or double-click on specific tracks to mute or solo them during playback of sequences or songs. Preset tracks will also send this controller message when a preset is selected.
Key zones can be used to create simple two-program splits or to create more complex keyboard layouts. Velocity Sensitivity parameter endoniq useful for balancing the velocity response of different Sounds, and for matching the velocity response of TS sounds with external MIDI sound sources.
Each track can have its pitch transposed raised or lowered by octaves and semitones within an eight octave range.

This allows you to play staccato bass lines on the lower msnual of the manuap while playing chords on the upper part of the keyboard and using the sustain pedal. This parameter is visible on Preset Tracks, but does not really apply to Presets. You should consult the MIDI implementation chart of the remote MIDI device you will be using in conjunction ensoniiq the TS to see which if any type of pressure it responds to and transmits.
For best results, set 100 TS Pressure parameter to match the type of pressure supported by the external MIDI device which will send to or receive from the track you are setting. Incoming MIDI and sequencer playback will not play internal voices.
This is useful when using the TS as a controller with an external sequencer and a number of other remote MIDI devices. Individual preset tracks will not receive on different MIDI channels; The default Program Change number that appears is usually the number mabual the internal TS sound assigned to the track. This number is automatically set whenever a sound is selected from the Sound Bank pages.
Continued presses of the Track Effects button will scroll through the parameters related to the currently selected Effect Algorithm. These are identical to the effects parameters in the Programming section of the TS see Section 7 — Effects Parameters for descriptions of these parameters. MUTE will appear in the lower left corner of the display.
Preset Effects Each preset in the TS also contains an effect and a complete set of effect parameter values. The effect is present even if none of the tracks in the preset are routed through the effect e.
Sequencer Effect Like each of the presets in the TS, each sequence and song contains an effect and a complete set of effect parameter values.
The effect is present even if none of the tracks in the sequence are routed through the effect e. The complete effects setup, including mamual values of all effect parameters, is saved when you save a sound.
It is also saved when you save a preset. The TS tries to be smart about switching effects, since wnsoniq sound must stop for an instant when it changes effects. A bus, like the bus of a mixing board, mixes together all the voices assigned to that bus into a single stereo pair. These algorithms can be very useful in Presets and Sequencer mode, where you would like different effects processing for each track. A setting of 99 would yield a serial connection between Effect A and the chorus for voices sent to FX1 and panned hard left on the Output page.
For starters, we recommend settings of A level of 00 will offer no audible signal. For the best ensoniw, try to select the highest value that works with your sound source.
The second sub-page not user-programmable shows how this parallel effect is routed: Higher values have a brighter sound. This parameter can be modulated, using a CV Pedal for a wah-wah pedal effect. This would allow you to add reverb to voices assigned to FX1 and panned hard left, without having to add any of the rotary speaker effect.
Every time the modulation source moves from zero in a positive direction, the rotating speaker effect changes speeds from slow to fast or fast to slow.
