All sounds in the CBXT3 are produced using AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) technology. AWM is a technique for digitally recording waveform data of original sounds, resulting in a very accurate recorded sound. Sound samples are stored in the CBXT3's internal ROM (Read Only Memory).
The CBXT3 uses the elements stored in its ROM to form Voices. The 192 basic instrument Voices include: piano, electronic piano, guitar, bass, strings, brass, and more.
The CBXT3 is Multi-Timbral, meaning it can produce up to 16 different Voices simultaneously.
The CBXT3 is 28-note polyphonic, meaning it can play up to 28 elements simultaneously. The 28 notes used are automatically and dynamically allocated among the CBXT3's 16 parts. With this feature, the CBXT3 can easily simulate a large band or orchestra.
Drum and Percussion Sets
The CBXT3 can generate a wide variety of drum and percussion Voices. These drum and percussion voices are all assigned to Part 10 and are divided into 10 style specific drum and percussion sets.
The CBXT3 contains a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which is used to generate 8 digital effects, including reverb and delay.
The CBXT3 is equipped with 16 MIDI channels and each channel has its own monitor LED on the front panel. And LED will light when its corresponding channel is being played.
Dynamic Voice Allocation
The CBXT3 uses a DVA (Dynamic Voice Allocation) system to automatically assign notes and MIDI channels. Up to 28 notes are available at any time, no matter which MIDI channel is being used.
The CBXT3 has an integrated computer interface, which translates a digital instruments MIDI language into the personal computer's language and vice versa. This interface can be connected directly to a computer's serial or modem port.
Third Party Song Data
The CBXT3 is compatible with various third-party song data collections, including the General MIDI standard (General MIDI Level 1), general third party supplied data song collections for the computer.
