8 If you wish to save the state of the combination at
the same time, return to Combination mode and
write the combination (
When editing a user arpeggio pattern, pay atten-
tion to the global MIDI channel, the channel of
each track, and the arpeggiator assignments, and
make sure that the arpeggiator you are hearing is
the pattern that you wish to edit.
If you moved here from Sampling mode (if the
separately sold EXB-SMPL option is installed), the
arpeggiator will not turn on. Nor will it be possible
to edit arpeggio patterns.

Synchronizing the arpeggiator

The note timing of the arpeggiator will differ depend-
ing on the state of the arpeggiator "Key Sync." check
If this is checked, the arpeggiator will operate at the
timing of the first note-on you play from a state in
which all keys are released.
If this is unchecked, the arpeggiator will operate in
synchronization with the internal or external MIDI
The paragraphs below explain how synchronization
occurs when the "Key Sync." check box is unchecked.
(However, synchronization with Song Start and with
the MIDI realtime command Start message are excep-
tions to this.)
Synchronization between arpeggia-
tors A and B
In Combination and Sequencer mode, two arpeggia-
tors can operate simultaneously. In this case, if you
start an arpeggiator (whose "Key Sync." is unchecked)
while the other arpeggiator is already running, the
arpeggiator you started will synchronize to the "
(Tempo)" based on the timing of the already-running
If "Key Sync." is checked, A and B will each oper-
ate on their own timing.
Synchronization between the arpeg-
giators and sequencer in Sequencer
When song playback is stopped
• The arpeggiator will synchronize to the "
(Tempo)" based on the timing of the internal MIDI
• In Sequencer mode when an RPPR pattern is
playing, the arpeggiator will synchronize to the
beats of that pattern.
• If you want the RPPR pattern playback to
synchronize to the currently-running arpeggiator,
set "Sync" (SEQ 5.1: RPPR, RPPR Setup page) to
Playback will synchronize to the " (Tempo)" timing
of the arpeggiator.
When a song is being played or recorded
• The arpeggiator will synchronize to the beats based
on the timing of the song.
Synchronization with Song Start
• When the arpeggiator is on (the [ARP ON/OFF]
key is on) and running, receiving a Song Start
message will reset the arpeggiator to the beginning
of the pattern. (This has no relation to the "Key
Sync." setting.)
• In Sequencer mode when the "Key Sync." setting is
unchecked and the [ARP ON/OFF] key is on,
starting the arpeggiator by pressing notes during
the pre-count before recording will cause the
arpeggiator to start (and be recorded) from the
beginning of the arpeggio pattern at the moment
that recording begins.
Synchronization with an external
sequencer in Program, Combination,
or Sequencer modes
In Program, Combination, and Sequencer modes when
" (Tempo)" is EXT (GLOBAL 2.1: MIDI "MIDI Clock"
set to External or Ext-USB), the TR will synchronize to
MIDI Clock and Start messages received from an exter-
nal MIDI sequencer (or similar device) connected by a
MIDI cable.
Synchronization to external MIDI clock
• The arpeggiator will synchronize to the "
(Tempo)" based on the timing of the external MIDI
Synchronization to the MIDI Start message
• When the arpeggiator is on and operating,
receiving a MIDI Start message will cause the
arpeggiator to reset to the beginning of the pattern.
(This has no relation to the "Key Sync." setting.)
