SOUNDS FEATURING “PROCHORD” FUNCTION

Extra Voice instruments that contain “Pcd” in their description feature Hammond’s exclusive ProChord function.  When notes or chords are played on a Lower Manual and a note is played on an Upper Manual, the note represented by the key played on the Upper Manual is heard along with a scored harmony pattern which sounds according to the Chord Root and Chord Type selected by the notes played on the

Lower Manual.

Sk1, Sk1-73, Sk1-88:

The SPLIT feature must be enabled (SPLIT Touch Tab “ON”) and a note or chord played to the left of the Split point in order for the harmony to sound when notes are played to the right of the Split point.

Sk2:

A note or chord must be played on the Lower Manual in order for the ProChord harmony to sound when notes are played on the Upper Manual.

On both the Sk1 and Sk2, the harmony will sound ONLY if Lower Manual notes are pressed and held while the melody is played.

If no Lower Manual notes are held, only the Melody note will sound.

Also, when a ProChord Extra Voice is selected, play a single-note melody with the right hand while holding Lower Manual notes or chords so that the harmony will play correctly.  If you wish to play chords using a ProChord Extra Voice, it is best if no Lower Manual notes are pressed and held at the same time.
