I saw a post about this a while back but I can’t seem to find it. How do I turn the volume down on individual drum sounds? I think I remember it being an edit parameter in voice mode but I can’t find it.

You edit Drum Kits in VOICE mode… here is a portion of the article on Drums:

Go to [VOICE] mode and select a drum kit, you can press [EDIT] and start to customize the kit immediately. Like all EDIT functions in the ES you have two levels of editing: a general overall and a specific

overall parameters that are shared by the entire VOICE (Name, Kit Output Volume, Controller assignments, Arpeggio assignments, and Effect selection.

� KEY EDIT � (press Track Select [1] )
Individual keys contain a drum instrument, and here you will find all the parameters to control that individual drum instrument (Oscillator wave, assign mode, alternate group, effect routing, output routing, tuning, pitch sensitivity, filter, output level, amplitude envelope, EQ).

Each drum has its own EQ, amplitude envelope, filter, etc� so when we say each key is like a separate instrument we mean it has the same type of controls you would find on each normal Voice. That is why a drum Voice is so very big compared to a normal Voice. You have an unprecedented amount of control over setting up the kit. And like a drummer setting up the kit is important prior to playing. That said, during record (i.e., in SONG or PATTERN) you have real time control over Insertion Effect parameter via your physical Controllers.

Press [EDIT]
Press Track Select [1] to view KEY EDIT parameters
Press [F6] EQ

[F6] EQ � Each Drum has its own Equalizer. This device can be configured as a 2-band, single band Parametric or act as a straight level boost (+6dB, +12dB or +18dB).  Being able to equalize (balance the tone and loudness) of each individual drum is extremely useful in getting the exact sound you want from your drums. Use this equalizer when you want your KICK drum to boom or you want more snap from your snare. In other products you only have an overall equalizer (if you get that)� in the Motif XS you have individual equalizers for each Element� repeat � you have individual equalizer for each Element.

STORE your kit to a USER DRUM location and then use that kit in your sequence.

Attached is a copy of the “Behind the Manual” on Creating custom drums for the Motif , but it is relevant for the ES as well.
