Internal Design of the CP5 & CP50 > Tone Generator
Your stage piano's Tone Generator produces sounds based on performance data that you create by playing the key-
board, operating the sequencer, and using various controllers. In specific terms, the Tone Generator is made up of Per-
formances, a Master Compressor block, and a Master Equalizer block. The term “Performance” is used to describe a
single preset that allows a number of voices to be produced together.
Meanwhile, the Master Compressor block and the Master Equalizer block are used to adjust the dynamics and tone of
the sounds produced by individual Performances. Master Compressor and Master Equalizer settings are stored sepa-
rately from Performances; therefore, they affect the stage piano as a whole and can be adjusted to perfectly match the
environment in which it is being played. The basic flow of signals between these components is as follows.
Each Performance comprises a number of different parts and a Reverb block. As shown below, CP5 Performances con-
tain six different parts, while CP50 Performances have three. Furthermore, the types of sound that can be handled vary
from part to part. For more information on parts, see page 5.
• Left and right parts: LEFT1, LEFT2, RIGHT1, and RIGHT2
• TRACK part
• MIC INPUT part
• Left and right parts: LEFT and RIGHT
• TRACK part
The sound of each Performance is completed by applying a common reverb effect to the sound of each of the selected
parts. As a final step, furthermore, the sound of the stage piano itself can be perfectly matched to its playing environment
by setting the Master Compressor and Master Equalizer blocks, which affect all Performances in the same way.
:The LEFT2, RIGHT2, and MIC INPUT parts are available
on the CP5 only.
