I work at a music store that has an MO8FX and I'd like to learn how to play a continuous drum rhythm while playing piano over it. If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be super helpful.
There are several ways to do so, the quickest and easiest would be the two steps, as follows:
First, select the Piano Voice you would like to play
Next, press the [DRUM ASSIGN] button located in the “Performance Creator” area just to the right of the screen.
You will immediately be placed in Performance Mode, the Piano Voice will be in Part 1 and you will be placed in Category Search to Select a Drum Kit.
Each Drum Kit has appropriate Arpeggio... that is, if you select a Rock Kit, for example, a Rock drum phrase will automatically default. Select a Hip Hop Kit, a Hip Hop Drum phrase is default, and so on.
You can change the Arp Phrase to any of over 2300 Drum Arps in memory.
