    Active Sensing Status • When Active Sensing is received, the FR-7/FR-5 starts monitoring the intervals of all further messages. While monitoring, if the interval between messages exceeds 420 ms, the same processing will be carried out as when All Sounds Off, All Notes Off and Reset All Controllers are received, and message interval monitoring will be halted.
  • Page 86: Bulk Dump

    When the FR-7/FR-5 receives a Bulk Dump Request, it transmits a Bulk Dump. The FR-7/FR-5 is able to transmit and receive a SET whereas it can receive only ICON bitmap.
