Editing Applications

Editing the Sounds

Adjust the parameters in Program Edit mode to edit a Program (see page 23, 38, 78). Adjust the
parameters in Combination Edit mode to edit a Combination (see page 26, 51, 100). To edit
Programs used for Combination Timbres, and Programs used for Tracks in a Multi setup, first
select the Program you wish to edit in Program Play mode, then enter Program Edit mode.

Copying Effect Settings

You can copy effect settings from Programs or Combinations for use in Multi mode or to apply
the effect settings of a particular Program to a Combination. Use the Copy Effect function (see
page 119) to perform this operation.

Editing the Sound from a Computer

You may edit X5DR sounds from a computer using sound editing software. Be certain to use
sound editing software that is compatible with the X5DR (editing involves MIDI exclusive data
in the transmission of sound data). You may also use a sound editor designed for the X5 or 05R/W;
their data is compatible with the X5DR, except for a few settings in Multi mode and Global mode.

Restoring the Parameter Values to the Factory Settings

To restore edited parameter values to factory default settings, load the default data on page 5A
PRESET DATA in Global mode (see page 20, 156.). It should be noted that this operation will
erase all existing data, such as the data of Bank A Programs, Combinations, Drum Kits, and user
scales. If necessary, first save the data elsewhere. (See the following paragraph.) The X5DR has
two types of preset data (PRE-a and PRE-b, for a total 200 Programs and 200 Combinations). The
factory setting is PRE-a.

Saving Sound Data

Sound data and settings data can be transmitted as MIDI exclusive messages from the X5DR to
an external sequencer or to a data filer that is capable of writing MIDI exclusive messages. Use
page 4A MIDI DUMP for transmission (see page 154). You can also send data directly to the
computer via the TO HOST connector. The X5DR is compatible with the X5 and 05R/W, except
for a few parameters.
Set the EX parameter on page 2E MIDI FILTER in Global mode to "ENA" to receive MIDI
exclusive messages. Otherwise, set this parameter to "DIS." You also need to set the same Global
MIDI Channel that was selected when you saved the data and switch the Memory Protect function
ON. (See page 151–153.)
