Bass Guitar sound,Not Bass Organ, on Lower side and Upper side have Strings and Organ layered so when I'm playing without a Bass Man, I can Handle it clean and smooth.. Bad Mister , Please Try it and Let Me Know.,Question #2.. When you Edit the Leslie, are the Edits Stored Global or stored with each Organ setup or each Performance.. Thanks Again...YamahaJim from Jersey....

Hello Jim,

"Can you make a Split/Layer? Bass Guitar sound,Not Bass Organ, on Lower side and Upper side have Strings and Organ layered so when I'm playing without a Bass Man, I can Handle it clean and smooth."

Yes, you can. You could set the Bass Guitar Sound in Keys A, Strings in Keys B. Those will be Split with Keys A (Bass) on the left and Keys B (Strings) on the right. The Organ Section can be layered all the way across OR you could duplicate your layer using the split in the Organ Section (which is capable of Splitting the Upper and Lower Manuals).

"When you Edit the Leslie, are the Edits Stored Global or stored with each Organ setup or each Performance."

They are stored with each Performance so you can really set the organ sound exactly as you want. One Live Set Sound could be the H1 using the Rotary A with a small amount of horn, lots of rotor and lots of background noise. Another Live Set Sound could have the exact same H1 sound with Rotary A but with ENTIRELY different settings. It's super cool.

Jim: You are going to love the YC61. It's sounds great, plays great, does what you need it to do, is really solid and weights just under 16 lbs!

I have a question for you...Can you handle it clean AND smooth? ;-). I seem to only be able to do it clean OR smooth... ;-(

No, no rhythm patterns. You can connect an external device (via USB “To Host”, or to the L/R analog inputs) to play audio through the YC61 — separate on board Volume is available in both instances.

The MODX7 and the YC61 is a perfect pairing (the whole rig is like 32 pounds)...

could I suggest YAMAHA the ability to load import DX7 or FM-X patches created by user into the machine? seeing as I can program my stuff on the montage then insert into the mobile YC-61 that would be swell. it doesn't go against the philosophy of the YC instrument of being immediate and easy to use as well, cause all editing and programming done externally. But what it does do is make the YC a perfect instrument
