MIDI Functions MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with each other, by send- ing and receiving compatible Note, Control Change, Program Change and various other types of MIDI data, or messages. The DGX-500/300 can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data and various types of controller data.
(sequencer software) When connecting to a computer with a USB interface, use the Yamaha UX16 USB/MIDI Interface. Connect the UX16 and the com- puter with a standard USB cable, then make the proper MIDI con- nections between the DGX-500/300 and the UX16.
MIDI Functions Local Control This function lets you enable or disable keyboard control over the DGX-500/ 300’s voices. This would come in handy, for example, when recording notes to MIDI sequencer.
