What is Multi mode?
Multi mode allows you to use the X5DR as
a 16-channel multi-timbre (GM) tone
generator. You can play different
Programs assigned to 16 tracks. When
you turn on the power to the X5DR, Multi
mode uses a default GM setting, which
allows you to play back a GM score (GM
performance data) right away. If you wish
to restore the GM default setting, send the
GM System On message or set 23A SET
TO GM accordingly.
* If the GM score is not played back
correctly, refer to "Notes on playing back
GM scores" on Page 18.
