To select a track, place the cursor at one of the following
parameters, and use the cursor buttons to switch tracks. The
selected track is called the "active track," and is indicated by
square brackets [ ].
Note: If the song is stopped, this is synchronized with Track
This sets whether the Track controls the internal sounds, external
MIDI devices, or both.
When controlling external MIDI devices, it also allows you to
choose the internal Bank Select numbers (as set by the front-panel
buttons), or use custom Bank Select settings to match the external

Program will not sound, and MIDI data will not be transmitted.
INT: The track will sound when you play back the performance
data recorded on the MIDI track. If you use Track Select to select
a MIDI track that is set to INT, the KROSS's sound generator will
produce sound when played. MIDI data will not be transmitted to
an external device.
BTH: Both INT and EXT are operative. When the musical data
recorded in the MIDI track is played back, or when you select a MIDI
track that is set to BTH and play the controllers of the KROSS, the
internal tone generator of the KROSS will sound, and MIDI data will
also be transmitted to an external device.
EXT: When the musical data recorded in the MIDI track is played
back, or when you select a MIDI track that is set to EXT and play
the controllers of the KROSS, MIDI data will be transmitted to an
external device, but the internal tone generator of the KROSS will
When you select another song or return to the beginning of the
song, the program change, volume, pan pot, portamento, sends 1

The program that you select here will be used when the song is
played or recorded from the beginning. If the program is changed
while recording, the program change will be recorded as MIDI
data, and the program will change during playback. You can also
change the program manually during playback. However, the
program will change at any point where program change data is
Note: You can't select a program if Pad Sampler On/Off is on.
If the Status is either INT or BTH, programs can be selected
by receiving MIDI program change messages. Also, when
the song is changed or when the song returns to the
beginning, tracks where the Status is EXT, EX2 or BTH will
transmit the bank and program numbers via MIDI. Tracks
where the Status is EX2 will show Bank as "–" and will
transmit the bank number that was selected in the Bank
Select (S–TRACK> MIDI) parameter. (see "Track MIDI
Out" on page 162)
Various ways to change the program for a track
• Choose Program Select, and turn the VALUE dial.
• If you've chosen Program Select and use the sound select list

• Transmit MIDI program change messages from a connected
external MIDI device (if the track Status is INT or BTH).
