About Fretboard | Position

Click on the “Settings” tab and change from “Strings” → “Fretboard.”

“Fretboard | Position” refers to what area of the fretboard the guitar play.

For most background/rhythm guitar parts, “Auto” will work just fine.
For a guitar solo, its best to move it to somewhere around “Position 9〜15.”
(In our video we set it to “Position 12”)

About the playing modes

Electri6ity is largely split into 3 different playing modes.

  • POLY「Key switch : F#」→ For playing harmonies (more than 1 note at a time)
  • SOLO「Key switch : G#」→ For playing single notes
  • LEGATO「Key switch : A#」→ For playing smooth/connected single notes

LEGATO mode caution

When using the playing mode “LEGATO,”
if the key switch “A#”s velocity is set “under 90,”
it will play in “LEGATO Mute” so be sure to double check when sequencing.

  • 「A#」velocity「over 91」→ LEGATO
  • 「A#」velocity「under 90」→ LEGATO Mute

We will continue in our part 2 article.
