Stage Settings – Everything is Included
One rather amazing thing about the PX-5S is that everything is included within the Stage Setting. What do we mean by that? On many keyboards if you want to change a tone that is used in a “Performance” you have to leave the “Performance” change the tone, save the tone go back to the “Performance” and change your zone to use this new sound.
The PX-5S solves this in a few different ways. First, you can edit the tone from within the Stage Setting. Next the new sound is stored as part of the Stage Setting itself! This means that if you save or backup your Stage Settings to a USB drive or download one from the web all the of the objects that the Stage Settings needs are included within that file. This includes custom tones and arpeggiators.
You can still save these items individually, that is useful if you want to use a custom tone later in a different Stage Setting. As far as we know, the PX-5S is the first instrument to handle “Performances” and their dependent objects this way.
