The target (INT/EXT) of each zone control can be turned on or off as desired using the ? (INT/EXT) button. Zone editing (page E-28) lets you configure detailed settings related to how each individual zone controls an internal sound source and/or external MIDI device.

In the case of an internal sound source, zone editing can be performed to create sounds by selecting a DSP, configuring DSP settings, editing tones, etc. Following sound creation, signals are output via an equalizer that allows adjustment of centralized common parameter settings (page E-18).
