Recording Your Performance as Audio

Try recording your performance as audio data (WAV file) to a USB flash memory.

together or record yourself singing along with song playback by connecting a guitar,
microphone or other device to the instrument. The maximum amount of recording
time is 80 minutes per recording, though this may differ depending on the capacity
of the particular USB flash memory.
The following sounds can be recorded.
• Internal tone generator of the instrument.
Keyboard parts (Right 1, Right 2, Left), Song parts, Style parts.
• Input from a microphone, guitar or other instrument (via the [MIC./LINE IN]
• Input from another audio device, such as a CD player, MP3 player or the like (via
the [MIC./LINE IN] jack).
The recorded data using this function is saved as:
• Stereo WAV data
• 44.1 kHz sample rate/16 bit resolution
Connect the USB flash memory to the [USB TO DEVICE]
Set the desired Voice, etc. which you want to use for your
performance. (For information setting the Voice, see page 37; for
setting the Style, see page 48; for connecting a microphone, see
page 102.)
