Hello all,

I name myself just an owner rather than a user. 'cuz I know nothing about synths.I can just hit the chords. I am a guitar player and have an interest to keyboards. We play mostly 80's rock songs in the stage and to broaden and to make rich our set list with keyboard included songs, I decided to get a cheap synth.

Anyways, We are playing Rober Tepper's classic Rocky soundtrack No Easy Wat Out. But I couldnt find the way to achieve tremolo sound effect goes within the song which makes it a well known classic epic tune.

In guitar, a tremolo effect pedal can produce this chatter effect like you open and close the sound very rapid. But all I can find is a wavy sound in tremolo effect option in X5d

So is it possible to achive this effect?

Best Regards

The tremolo effect may be sufficient to produce the desired result. Try setting the dry/wet mix to FX (i.e. wet) (Parameter 16B, see the User Manual page 114), and set Mod Waveform to Sine, Mod Shape to +99, Mod Depth to 99, Mod Speed to match the tempo, probably about 7 or 8Hz, at a guess (all on User Manual page 133).

An arpeggiator would have been handy, but the X5D doesn't have one. However, an external MIDI source (computer or other MIDI instrumet) might also be usable for this.

An alternative worth trying might be to use a MIDI sequencer to send Expression Pedal control change (CC#) messages, sending a stream of alternating low and high values to vary the volume. The effect would differ from that produced by an arpeggiator.

Thanks, Unfortunately I need an external MIDI source because tremolo settings didn't do it. Maybe I change X5d for an N1

Thanx again.

Sorry. Some tremolo effects can be made sufficiently deep to cut the sound off completely at minimum and have a sharpish cutoff, and the X5D user manual offered some hope it might be possible.

I found Tap Delay 1 effect which is near what I want but Now I need infinite repetitions.

Okay, The solution is to obtain a usb loop pedal or to change it with another keyboard.

With the Tap Delay, does increasing the feedback parameter amount give a repetition time anywhere close to what you need?
