Playing Back and Recording Songs
The preset songs, your recorded performances, and commercially available songs are referred to as "Songs" in
this manual. This instrument can play or record MIDI Songs and Audio Songs.
Available Song format
MIDI
In a MIDI song, the information of your keyboard
performance (such as keystroke and velocity) is
Songs
recorded. This is not a recording of the actual sound.
Based on the performance information, the tone
generator outputs the sound.
A MIDI Song uses a small amount of data capacity in
comparison to an Audio song, and allows you to
easily change aspects of the sound, such as Voices
used, etc.
Audio
An Audio Song is a recording of the performed sound
itself.
Songs
This data is recorded in the same way as that used in
recording cassette tapes, or with voice recorders, etc.
This data can be played with a portable music player,
etc., allowing you to easily let other people hear your
performance.
