Voice Link

Voice Condition settings for each Voice can be registered in “Voice Link” and displayed on a single screen, where they can be called up for each of the Voice Sections. Because Condition settings are also linked, there is no need to repeatedly copy settings for each Section, making the registration process much faster.

Voice Edit

The Voice Edit feature makes it possible to change the tone and volume of each Voice, enabling the player to create original Voices.
