In Multi mode, the X5DR plays back data on each Track's MIDI receive channel. Sending
Program Change and Bank Select messages will change the Program used for the corresponding
Track. When you turn on the X5DR power, when the X5DR receives a GM system on message,
or when 23A SET TO GM in Multi mode is executed, each Track's MIDI receive channel is set to
the same number as the Track number.
Track's MIDI Channel
• Effect control data is received on the Global MIDI channel.
Received MIDI data
The X5DR receives the following MIDI data:
Note On/Off (Note information)
This is a message for basic performance data. You can add information regarding the intensity of
the notes by using Velocity to describe how strongly you play the keyboard (key touch or key
velocity). The X5DR receives all notes (0–127) (sound pitch). However, some note ranges might
not play, depending on the particular Program.
This message changes the Programs. In Program Play mode and Multi mode, it changes the
Programs within the same Bank. In Combination Play mode, sending this message changes
Programs on the Timbres' MIDI channel, and it changes Combinations on the Global MIDI
Channel. Use the Bank Select message to change the Programs between Bank A and G, or to use
the Drum Programs.
This message provides a subtle change in pitch (less than a semitone). You can shift the pitch of a
note (that was produced by a Note On message) up or down. You can set the bend range (the range
of pitch change created by the Pitch Bend message) for each Track using RPN only in Multi mode.
