[QUOTE="Biggles, post: 216681, member: 9560"] For those reading this thread who are not used to Arrangers a bit of info All Korg Pa arrangers and as far as I know all Yamaha equivalent models that they opertate in a similar manner. In a typical keyboard in Style play mode with a Keyboard Split applied there are four Layers of Sounds. Upper 1, 2 and 3 (right of split) and Lower (left of split) Each layer can have multiple instrument sounds or it can have a single instrument sound, it all depends on what the Keyboard Set (Korg terminology) is associated with the chosen playing Style. In a Korg a Keyboard Set it could have in Up 1 the Italian Grand, Up 2 Warm Brass and in Up 3 a Synth Pad with Lower being Movie Strings Add in the Four Pads that could be set up to continuously so that they play a Bass Riff, a Guitar Riff, A Synth Brass Riff and a Pad riff Add in the backing Drum track Then you are knocking on the door of max Polyphony or even are in note throw away mode. Then there are the Variations and Fills associated with the Style. in a good quality Arranger there are three Intro options, preset 12 bar, user led 8 bar, quick 1 bar Then there are the 4 Variations with Var 1 being quite light in content and Var 4 being the most dramatic. Then there are three endings similar to the intros So with all the Layers functioning, the Pads in use and using Var 4 they keyboard will be well loaded. The Movie Strings that I quoted above uses 15 Oscillators and 24 in the Italian Grand which is the max available per instrument(s). In theory the Movie Strings (or any single sound or combination) could be edited to include more instruments up to the max oscillator number [/QUOTE]
