The Motion Control System is a completely new feature for variably controlling Motions (rhythmical, multidimensional sound changes) in real time. This amazingly powerful feature dramatically and dynamically alters the sounds of the instrument in new, never-heard-before ways—changing texturally, rhythmically with the beats, providing cool, colorful lighting effects, and responding expressively to your creative passion.

The Motion Control System has three main functions:

1) Super Knob

2) Motion Sequencer

3) Envelope Follower

Super Knob is Macro controller for creating multi-dimensional sonic changes, and enhancing those changes with colorful, continually shifting lighting changes.

Yes. You just connect your Foot Controller (FC7) to FOOT CONTROLLER2 jack.

The powerful Motion Sequencer feature lets you dynamically change sounds by operating Parameters depending on sequences created in advance.

It provides real time control for changing sounds depending on various sequences such as Tempo, Arpeggio, or the rhythm of external connected devices.

Envelope Follower is a function for detecting the volume envelope of the input signal waveform and modifying sounds dynamically.

MODX has a Live Set function for easily calling up Performances as you play onstage.

Once you’ve stored Performances in the desired order, you can concentrate fully on your playing and never be at a loss on which to choose.

Each Performance can have 8 SCENE settings.

You can assign different "snapshots" of important part related parameters such as track mute status and the basic Mixing setup to the SCENE [1] – [8] buttons as Part Scenes.

MODX has SSS (Seamless Sound Switching) function for switching between Performances smoothly without any notes being cut off.

ABS (Audio Beat Sync) is a function for detecting the beat of the audio signal input from A/D Input and synchronizing the beat with the Motion Sequencer or Arpeggio.
