4A MIDI Data Dump
This page allows you to transmit X5DR data via Exclusive data to an external MIDI device, such
as a MIDI data ﬁler, computer, Korg 05R/W, or another X5DR.
When screen 4A is selected, MIDI Dump data can be sent and received even when the MIDI
System Exclusive ﬁlter on 2D MIDI Filter is set to DIS.

Saving Data with MIDI Data Dump
1) To save X5DR data using MIDI Data Dump, you must connect a MIDI device capable of receiving
MIDI Data Dump to the X5DR MIDI OUT, or connect a computer's serial port to the X5DR's TO
HOST. If you are saving the data to a MIDI data ﬁler, you do not need to set the MIDI Channels.
However, if you are transferring the data to an X5DR, X5 or 05R/W, the Global MIDI Channel on
both devices should be set the same.
2) Specify the X5DR data that you want to save.
3) "External Out Dump Select" on this page determines whether data is transmitted through MIDI
OUT or through TO HOST. Set this to MIDI for transmission through MIDI OUT, and set it to
PCIF through TO HOST. In this case, the setting of 2B External Out Select does not affect data
4) Position the cursor on OK?, then press the [ ] button to dump
When transmission is completed, "Completed" appears on the screen. Press the [ ] or [ ] button
to return to the previous screen.
Note: While dumping, do not press any buttons.
The following table lists the data size and dump time for each Data Dump.
Type of Data Dump
If Multi or All data is selected for data dump, each data dump operation transmits dump data,

You need to send these two types of data to set the parameters in Multi mode.
MULTI SETUP DATA (exp) is setup data for a Track except for the effect setting data in Multi
mode. If Multi or ALL data is selected for data dump, only the effect settings in Multi mode are
