You can specify "3" to input a triplet. If you want to
use the unmodiﬁed length of the note that's selected at

"Note Duration" indicates the length that the note
itself will sound. Smaller values will produce a
staccato note, and larger values will produce a legato
note. For this example, leave this setting unchanged.
"Note Velocity" is the velocity (playing strength), and
larger values will produce a louder volume. Set this to
If you select Key for this parameter, the velocity with
which you actually play the keyboard will be input.

In addition to the methods described in steps 5 and 6,
you can also use the following input methods.
• To input a rest, press the Rest button. This will
input a rest of the selected Step Time value.
• To modify the length of a note, you can modify the
Step Time value before you input the note.
However if you want to extend the length (tie) of
the note, press the Tie button. At this time, the
previously-input note will be extended by the Step
• To delete a note or rest that you input, press the

COMPARE switch to return to the state prior to
recording, and then re-record from step 4.
When you begin step recording, all data in the
MIDI track that follows the measure where you
began recording will be erased. You need to be
aware of this if you begin step recording from a
measure mid-way through the song.
If you want to copy data into a measure that
already contains data, perform step recording in
an empty MIDI track, and use the Move Measure
or Copy Measure menu commands. For details,
please see "Copy Measure" on page 200 of the
Parameter Guide, and "Move Measure" on
page 201 of the Parameter Guide.
If you want to edit or add to the recorded data,
you can use the Event Edit function. For details,
