Drum modules generally have something else assigned to a switch, because transposing drum notes by an Octave is not as useful, although sometimes it might create interesting results, as does transposing the drum notes by different semitone amounts. However, since there are only eight Performance RTP Parameters, and it is typical to assign a Slider to the Note Map Table for Drums (also a Perf RTP), assigning Transpose to Drums would not leave any Perf RTP Slots open for that assignment. Also note that many older Korg-produced combis do not closely follow these newer guidelines to keep Sliders and Switches 5-8 closely tied in respective order to modules A-D where possible and useful.

†† For a Drum module, it is typical to assign the Note Map Table parameter (Alternate Note Map) to the slider number that corresponds to the location of the Drum Module (i.e. Module A = 5, Module B = 6 etc.)

Note: The slider/switch names describe how they change the sound generated by the GE. They are not names of specific GE parameters. Some of them control multiple GE parameters at the same time.
