5. Use the CURSOR shuttle to select the measure, beat, and tempo param-
eters and set the desired values using the DATA dial.
The measure can be set from 1 to 999. The beat parameter depends on the number of beats
per measure, which is specified by the Meter setting. For example, for a Meter setting of 4/4,
the beat parameter can be set from 1 to 4. For a Meter setting of 6/8, this beat parameter can
be set from 1 to 6.
While the measure field is flashing, you can also turn the DATA dial to the left to select the
last measure of your Tempo Map and then scroll through your map in reverse order.
6. Press the [ENTER] button.
The A once again flashes.
7. Use the DATA dial to select the next step (B).
8. Use the CURSOR shuttle to select the measure and time signature param-
eters and set the desired values using the DATA dial.
9. Press the [ENTER] button.
The B now flashes on the display. Repeat steps (7) and (8) to program other Tempo changes.
Note: If you select a measure number that is already assigned to a preceding step, the tempo
value for that step is replaced by the new value.
10. Press the [ENTER] button again to return to the Utility mode, or press
[EXIT] or [UTILITY] to leave the Utility mode altogether.
