MIDI Functions

You can make detailed adjustments to MIDI settings.

MIDI Transmit/Receive Channel Selection

In any MIDI control setup, the MIDI channels of the transmitting and receiving devices must be matched
for proper data transfer.
This parameter enables you to specify the channel on which the instrument transmits or receives MIDI
data.
Setting the Transmit Channel
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] button, press and hold the [METRONOME/RHYTHM]
button, then press one of the E0–G#1 keys.
Setting the Receive Channel
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] button, press and hold the [METRONOME/RHYTHM]
button, then press one of the A#1–D#3 keys.

Local Control ON/OFF

"Local Control" refers to the fact that, normally, the keyboard of the instrument controls its internal tone generator, allowing the inter-
nal voices to be played directly from the keyboard. This situation is "Local Control On," since the internal tone generator is controlled
locally by its own keyboard. Local control can be turned OFF, however, so that the the keyboard of the instrument does not play the
internal voices, but the appropriate MIDI information is still transmitted via the [USB TO HOST] terminal when notes are played on
the keyboard. At the same time, the internal tone generator responds to MIDI information received via the [USB TO HOST] terminal.
While holding down the [DEMO/SONG] button, press and hold the [METRONOME/RHYTHM]
button, then press the D6 key. Pressing the D6 key repeatedly toggles between Local Control On
and Off.

NOTE
In Dual, Split or Duo, Voice 1 data is
transmitted on its specified channel and
Voice 2 data is transmitted on the next
greater channel number relative to the
specified channel. In this case, no data is
transmitted if the transmit channel is set
to "OFF."
NOTE
ALL:
"Multi-timbre" Receive. This allows
simultaneous reception of different parts
on all 16 MIDI channels, enabling the
instrument to play multi-channel song
data received from a computer.
1+2:
"1+2" Receive. This allows simultaneous
reception on channels 1 and 2 only,
enabling the instrument to play 1 and 2
channel song data received from a com-
puter.
NOTE
Program change and other like channel
messages received will not affect the
panel settings of the instrument or the
notes you play on the keyboard.
NOTE
