Yes but why would you want to. This is what adds expression to your music. Go to  Menu and page two.Select Keyboard and Joystick. There you can take the ticks out of the voices.

Hi kellyboy1,

in addition to what Eileen said:

Press [Direct Access] button and then [Modulation Hold] button (next to the Joystick) to call up the "Keyboard/Joystick" window (or press [Menu] > [Keyboard/Joystick] > [Keyboard]).

There you can specify which keyboard parts "Initial Touch" should apply to. You can also set the desired value for "Fixed Velocity" there. This value is used for the parts for which the Touch Response (Initial Touch) is set to off.


P.S.
I do NOT recommend to set Initial Touch completely to off for certain Parts. Instead, call up "Voice Edit" for the respective Voice and use the "Touch Sensitivity Depth" and "Touch Sensitivity Offset" parameters under "Common" to reduce the impact of the played Velocity on the Voice if necessary (but not completely prevent).

Please refer to pages 37 and 46/47 of the SX900 Reference Manual and see also the attached picture.


Best regards,
Chris

I can only assume wanting to turn this feature 'off' hails from playing traditional organ ?? Kelly
It would just be interesting to know

When I made the transition from organ to keyboard, i found it quite odd using my fingers rather than my feet to add expression and did not use this feature on many of my early keyboards ( although some did not even have it ) . Now i have to say, i would not be without it.

There a range of velocity sense curves to pick from. You might find one of them suits you better so you don't lose all expression, but don't have to bang them so hard.

Hi kellyboy1,

go to "Keyboard/Joystick" window (as described in my first post) and set "Touch Curve" to "Soft 2". This setting produces a relatively high volume even with light playing strength.

You can also set this behaviour separately for each Voice (using "Voice Edit" > "Touch Sensitivity", as mentioned above). Note: Since you cannot overwrite Preset Voices you must save a changed Voice as a "User Voice" then.


P.S.
If you feel that the Voices of the Keyboard Parts (Right 1 - 3, Left) are "too quiet", simply set the STYLE volume to a slightly lower value (e.g. from 100 to 90 or 85) and then increase the master volume if necessary. If you use commercial MIDI files, set the Song Volume to 60 ... 70.

Also check the Master EQ and Master Compressor settings (accessed via the mixer): You should not set too much compression, as this makes the output signal quieter. As a test, you can also switch off the Master Compressor completely. With the "Output" control of the Master Compressor you can increase the overall output signal. But please don't turn it up too far, otherwise internal digital distortion could occur.


Best regards,
Chris

No I am afraid you cant. Your easiest solution would be to save your desired touch sense to registration banks. Always the best way to go anyway.

Hi jay,

when you call up a certain Playlist record, a certain Registration Bank is loaded and then a certain Registration of this Bank.

You can change all settings as desired, then memorize the current settings back to the SAME Registration button and SAVE the Registration Bank. Note: Make sure to have ticked all needed checkboxes after pressing the [Memory] button (before pressing the desired Registration button).


Best regards,
Chris

i previously had a psr 3000   and then a psr 670 and you could just turn touch sensitivity off, Why couldn't they just have that option on the sx900 i wonder

I had a PSR 2100, and you could dp that. But I never used that option. Much better to follow the advice of several friends here😀

You might not have an actual button for doing this however, you can assign Touch ON/OFF to a pedal or one of the assignable buttons.  I have done this on the Genos and find it very useful for the odd time I want to turn it off without having to waste time going into the setup function menus.  See page 111 of the reference manual.

hi bill
re touch sensitivity. how did you assign it to a button ?  i assigned to a button but all i have is the screen comes up on the initial touch screen and i then have to touch the screen to turn it off / on manually.  it would be a lot better just to touch a button and it be off

Hey Bill !!!

I have the assignable "Key A" on my SX700, assigned to disable the touch sensitivity, so when I turn the keyboard on, the sensitivity is on, but as soon as I press the assignable "Key A" it's disabled.   

To get to set it up, you press the "Menu" button (next to the touch screen), that will takes you to the Menu1 on the touch screen, then go to "Assignable", there you'll see 6 boxes for each one of the assignable keys A - F, just assign one of the keys to that function called "Initial Touch On/Off".

For more detailed instructions, look into your keyboard's Owner's Manual, there you should have step by step how to assign those keys.

This is all I know, good luck !!!   ;)
