Similar to the modulation wheel on a synthesizer, this feature allows the pitch, decay, panning, filter, balance or timing of individual instruments to be varied while the resultant sound is monitored in real time. This makes programming a more "musical" process than having to deal with a multitude of numbers and hieroglyphic parameters.
12 Instrument Pads
12 instrument pads feature full velocity sensitivity for even more expressive power. Original patterns programmed via the pads will have the right accents and dynamic flow without further need for editing.
2nd-Generation Advanced Wave Memory (AWM2) tone generation with programmable digital filtering and wave layering capability. A wide range of editable parameters include filter frequencies, envelopes, volume, pitch, panning and more.
On-board memory contains 96 voices, 100 preset patterns, 100 user patterns and 20 songs. Optional plug-in cards offer unlimited potential for expansion.
A parameter selector determines the parameter to be modified by the control wheel in the real-time record, step record, and parameter record modes.
A Data Control feature provides a fast, easy way to select patterns, songs, change the tempo values, edit voice parameter values, and more.
LCD Display Panel
A 24-character x 2-line backlit liquid crystal display panel (LCD) shows all the titles, parameters, and prompts you need to operate the RY30 with optimum ease and efficiency.
MIDI In and Out
The MIDI IN and OUT connectors enable the RY30 to transmit and receive MIDI compatible data.
This enables an optional Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch be used to start and stop patterns or song playback and recording.
Cassette In/Out Jack
This feature allows the RY30 to be interfaced to a standard cassette recorder via a mini-plug "y" cable (stereo mini-plug > 2 mono mini-plugs) so that data can be economically stored to and retrieved from cassette tape as required.
