Saving Global Setup Data
All global settings are stored when the X5DR is powered off. You do not need to use the Write
function to save them.
0A – 0E Master Tune/Transpose/Velocity Curve/After Touch
Here, you can tune the X5DR, and set the responses and baud rate for communication with a

Master Tune: This function allows you to tune the X5DR. The selected tuning is indicated in
steps and Hz. 0 cents is equal to 440Hz (A4).
The X5DR can also be tuned from external MIDI devices that can output MIDI RPN Fine Tune
messages (the X5DR cannot output these messages). In Multi mode, these messages are received
on the MIDI Channels speciﬁed for each track and control the Detune parameters. In all other
modes, they are received on the Global MIDI Channel and control the Master Tune function. Refer
to page 71 for MIDI RPN Fine Tune messages.
Transpose: This function allows you to transpose the X5DR in semitone steps. This is useful
when you want to play a song in a different key.
Velocity Curve: This parameter allows you to
adjust the velocity response. A low setting requires
strong playing to achieve the maximum value
(insensitive). A high setting will achieve the
maximum value with soft playing (sensitive).
Select one of the eight curves to suit your playing
Curves 7 and 8 are suitable when you do not need velocity, or when you wish to make the intensity
of the sound even, since changes are not obvious when playing moderately. However, Curves 7
and 8 are difﬁcult to control, because even soft playing will generate signiﬁcant changes.
1. Strong playing produces an obvious effect.
3. Standard curve
6. Moderate playing produces an obvious effect.
7. Small changes and a constant effect with moderate playing
8. Similar to Curve 7, but slightly ﬂatter.
