Structure of the X5DR

Control via MIDI/Sequencer
The X5DR is a MIDI tone module that receives MIDI messages from an external MIDI device to
playback data. You can also connect a computer directly to the X5DR using a computer interface
cable. The following diagram shows how the signal flows between the MIDI connectors, TO
HOST connector, and the X5DR (tone generator section).
THRU
EXT OUT SEL
MIDI connector
The signal flows via the MIDI connectors as follows:
MIDI IN
This connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI device to send it to the tone generator.
The received MIDI data is output from the MIDI THRU connector as it is. If the computer is
connected to the TO HOST connector, the MIDI data received here is transmitted from the TO
HOST connector to the computer.
MIDI OUT
When 2B EXT OUT SEL is set to MIDI in Global mode, the MIDI data (that is output when you
operate the panel) is transmitted to an external MIDI device. When EXT OUT SEL is set to PCIF,
the data is not output from the MIDI OUT connector. This connector also outputs MIDI data of
the KORG PC I/F MIDI Port received at the TO HOST connector.
When 4A MIDI DUMP is selected in Global mode, the signal is transmitted to the destination
specified in 4A. (See page 154.)
TO HOST connector
Connecting the TO HOST connector and a computer using a computer interface cable allows you
to control the X5DR from the computer, and allows you to send MIDI data to the computer.
From the computer
There are two ports for a signal sent from the computer: KORG PC I/F MIDI Port and KORG PC
I/F Synth Port. The signal at the KORG PC I/F MIDI Port is output from the MIDI OUT
connector. The signal at the KORG PC I/F Synth Port is sent to the tone generator section.
To the computer
MIDI data received at the MIDI IN connector is transmitted from the TO HOST connector to the
computer. When EXT OUT SEL is set to PCIF, the MIDI data (that is output when you operate
the panel) is sent from the TO HOST connector to the computer.
