"Vel Btm," "Vel Top": The arpeggiator will operate
when you play notes with a velocity (playing
strength) that is within the specified range. Notes
played with a velocity outside this range will be
sounded normally, without regard to the arpeggia-
tor on/off.

Linking the arpeggiator to a program

If you want the arpeggiator settings written in a pro-
gram to be selected when that program is selected,
check Program for "Auto Arp." (GLOBAL 1.1: System,
Basic page).
Arpeggiator settings in Combina-
tion and Sequencer modes
In Combination and Sequencer modes, the TR pro-
vides dual arpeggiator functionality that lets you use
two arpeggio patterns simultaneously. The settings in
each of these modes are made in the similar way.
As an example, the following explanation shows how
to make settings in Combination mode. For a detailed
explanation and example settings (
The dual arpeggiator functionality lets you do the fol-
lowing things.
• Assign an arpeggiator for each timbre. Choose from
Off, (arpeggiator) A, or (arpeggiator) B.
• Independently specify whether A and B will
• Select an arpeggio pattern and set parameters
independently for A and B.
• Make Scan Zone page settings so that you can use
keyboard range or playing velocity to switch
between normal playing and arpeggiated playing,
or to switch between arpeggiators A and B.
• Make settings for timbres that will be silent when
the arpeggiator is Off, and will sound only when
the arpeggiator is On.
Arpeggiator on/off
Each time you press the [ARP ON/OFF] key, the
arpeggiator will be switched on or off. When on, the
[ARP ON/OFF] key will light. The selected arpeggio
pattern will begin when you play the keyboard. The
on/off setting is saved when the combination is writ-
ten into memory.
If "Assign" is Off or "Arpeggiator Run" is not
checked, the arpeggiator will not operate even if
this key is on.

Select programs for the timbres that you wish to
use. For this example, select any desired program
for timbres 1–4.
For the timbres that you will be using, set "Status"
to INT, and set "MIDI Channel" to Gch or to the
global MIDI channel (set in GLOBAL 2.1: MIDI
"MIDI Channel").
For this example, set timbres 1–4 to a "Status" of
INT, and timbres 5–8 to a "Status" of Off. Set the
"MIDI Channel" of timbres 1–4 to Gch.
This is the same as for a program (
ever, the tempo is shared by both arpeggiators A
and B.
Assign arpeggiator A or B to the desired timbres.
Each timbre will be played by the arpeggiator that
has been assigned to it.
Check the arpeggiator(s) that you want to operate.
The arpeggiator(s) checked here will run when the
[ARP ON/OFF] key is turned on.
With the settings shown in the LCD screen for steps
2 and 3, turning the [ARP ON/OFF] key on will
cause arpeggiator A to operate for timbres 1 and 2,
and arpeggiator B to operate for timbre 3. When the
[ARP ON/OFF] key is turned off, timbres 1–4 will
sound as a layer.
If all timbres "Assign" are Off, or if neither "Arpeg-
giator Run" A or B is checked, the arpeggiator will
not function.

The parameters for A and B are the same as for a
