It has all the functions an airplane or heli pilot could want, but you don't have to be an expert to use them. When programming the cyclic and pitch mixing for a helicopter, it is possible for the sum of the two mixing values to exceed the mechanical travel limits of the servos. This can cause them to be overdriven into a locked position. Spektrum AirWare's Electronic E-Ring prevents this by automatically limiting servo travel if the sum of the cyclic and pitch values exceeds servo limits. When selecting a wing type for an airplane, Spektrum AirWare graphically depicts the type you've chosen and will automatically configure the necessary mixes for the pilot. This saves time and reduces the chances for error when programming complex control surface configurations.

Page 3 If you are already familiar with the operation of the original DX7, this manual will help you make the transition to the DX7s in short order. On the other hand, if this is your first FM digital instrument, this manual will guide you into the operation of your new synthesizer with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and explanations.
Page 4 Also, since the DX7s is electronic, you should make sure not to set it too close to equipment such as a television set that generates electromagnetic fields. Electrical storms and other natural or man-made disasters can give rise to power surges, which may damage the digital circuitry of your DX7s — even if the power is turned off.
Page 9: Getting Started Getting You can begin to enjoy your DX7s immediately, without poring through a lot of Started complicated electronic theory.
All you have to do is take the instrument out of the box and proceed as follows: Making Audio Connections There are three different ways to connect the DX7s to sound reinforcement equipment. Page 10 Turning on the DX7s After you have made the audio connection of your choice, turn the DX7s on by pressing the power switch located on the right side of the back panel. This is the first display you Volume Slider - 5 Page 12 3. Look at the diagram on the next page and make the necessary changes before you begin playing.
It allows a number of the DX7s useful performance-oriented features to be stored and recalled instantly. These features will be explained in detail in Sections 2 and Performance the steps below, and explore the richness the new sounds available in the Internal and ROM Cartridge memories. There are a number of new features available in Voice Mode most extensions Voice discussed in detail in Sections 2 and As you have just seen, the Voice Mode is where you recall the 64 Internal Voice memories and the 64 Cartridge Voice memories.
It allows you a great deal of expressive control over the shape of the sounds you play on the keyboard. Try using the Breath Controller in conjunction with Internal Voice 9. They can give you continuous control over a number of aspects of the sounds.
In the DX7s, this is accomplished in Edit Mode. Usually, you will use Edit Mode to create a new Voice or Performance setup, but you can also use it to find out the parameter values for the factory preset Voices and Performance setups. In the above procedure, the Edit Mode is entered after the Edit button is pressed in step 1. At that time, you can push any or all of the buttons indicated as many times as necessary to make the desired edits.
Each number button calls up a variety of parameters, often through the use of multiple LCD screen displays. A complete set of these screen displays will be given at the beginning of Section 3 for Performance parameters and Section 4 for Voice parameters.
Voice parameters are discussed in more detail in Section 4. Page 31 Performance parameters are discussed in more detail in Section 3. Utility parameters are discussed in more detail in Section 5. MIDI parameters discussed in more detail in Section 6. Page Saving New Sounds Memory. To do so, proceed as follows: Memory Protection Each time the DX7s is turned on, it automatically powers up with both the Internal and the Cartridge Memory Protect feature turned on.
Before you can save data, you must turn off this automatic memory protection. Page 34 - 28 All of the these buttons call up multiple LCD displays. The charts below show all of the displays called up by each button, and provide a complete list of parameters and value ranges.
Page Basic Performance Parameters Basic Accessed using buttons 28 and 29, these parameters determine the basic voice Performance relationships in Peformance Mode. Parameters Total Volume This parameter allows you to set an overall volume for each Performance memory. If you desire, you can use this setting to balance the levels of your Performance memories, so that constant Volume Slider or mixer adjustments are not necessary. Page Performance Name Since you have a total of ten characters to define your Peformance Memory, make sure that your Performance Name conveys the basic approach of the specific Performance Memory.
Performance Name You can enter a Performance Name of up to ten characters. To do so, follow the instructions below. The settings for Controllers Footswitches 1 and 2 and Continuous Sliders 1 and 2 are adjusted in Performance Edit Mode, using button The other controller settings are accessed in voice parameters.
Sustain Footswitch FS 1 Footswitch 1 is set to operate as a sustain pedal. Page Continuous Sliders The Continuous Sliders provide a new avenue for exploration of real-time timbral control. It offers the possibility of performing music using tuning and intonation systems other than Equal Temperament which is the current standard tuning for both pianos and synthesizers.
Micro Tuning data is accessed using button Page 46 - 40 Many of the these buttons call up multiple LCD displays. The basic voice of the DX7s is almost exactly the same as that of the ori,ginal DX7, assuring complete compatibility between the old and new instruments.
To discoser the additional voice parameters of the DX7s, read on. The new parameters are outlined below. When Pitch Bias is set to 0, there is no pitch change. Positive Pitch Bias settings result in an upward bend, while negative Pitch Bias settings cause the pitch to bend down.
The DX7s offers the possibility of even more subtle control over operator outputs, through Fractional Scaling. Page Utility Buttons Utility Buttons All of the memory functions and related utility functions are adjusted via the LCD displays called up using buttons 14 and Both of the these buttons call up multiple LCD displays.
Page 69 - 63 Page Memory Types Memory Types The chart below is a graphic representation of the way all the different DX7s memory areas interact with one another.
Since there are many facets to the memory layout of the DX7s, it may look intimidating at first. Once you become more familiar with the instrument, though, you will fjnd the memory layout is much simpler than it first appears.
As the name indicates, this is also the location where Voice or Performance data is edited. In computer terminology, this memory location is often called the Edit Buffer. The third bank contains Fractional Scaling data, and the fourth bank has the original Internal Voice and Performance data. Both charts list of parameters and value ranges.
In some cases, the first LCD display in a chart may not be the first one you see. If you turn this parameter off, all incoming MIDI data will be ignored. This can be used in conjunction with other MIDI instruments to produce a variety of interesting effects. Once you have typed in the third number, the program change you have typed in will be sent over MIDI to the instrument connected to your DX7s.
Page Appendices Appendices - 7 9 Page Appendix 1: Supplemental Information Appendix 1: As mentioned at the outset, this manual has not attempted to cover all of the functions of the DX7s in exhaustive detail.
To do so would have required a manual of large scale and Supplemental density, one in which it would have been very difficult to locate specific information Information needed to begin using the DX7s. Since Bibliography there is a wealth of material available on the operation of the original DX7, this manual has focused on the new functions and features.
