In some cases (usually when you are using the JD-Xi with an external sequencer) you will want to set the local switch to "OFF." This disconnects the keyboard on the JD-Xi from the internal sound source, so your sequencer can then control the sounds and parts more efficiently. Here are the steps for this setting:
- Press MENU.
- Use the cursor </> buttons to select "System" and press ENTER.
- Use the cursor </> buttons to select "Local Switch."
- Use the value +/- buttons to select "OFF."
- Press EXIT twice to return to the main screen.
The setting will be saved when exiting the System setting menu, so you will need to go back and set this to "ON" if you disconnect the JD-Xi from your external sequencer (otherwise you will hear no sound when playing the keyboard).
