Tap tempo control
A tap tempo control function is available in Program,
Combination, and Sequencer modes.
While the arpeggiator or sequencer is playing in any of
these modes, you can control the playback tempo in
real-time by lightly pressing the [TIMBRE/TRACK]
key several times at the desired tempo.
This function is convenient when you want to match
the playback tempo of the arpeggiator or sequencer
playback to another beat in real-time.
The Tap tempo feature also provides real-time control
over any BPM or tempo based effects.
The following example shows the procedure for using
Tap tempo in Program mode.
1 In Program mode, select C004: HipHop Kit.
2 In the PROG 1.1: Play, select the Are. Play page
and check the "Latch" check box.
3 Turn on the front panel ARPEGGIATOR [ON/
OFF] key.
4 Lightly press the [TIMBRE/TRACK] key several
times at the desired beat. The tempo " =" display
in the upper right of the LCD will change accord-
ing to the playback tempo.
When you play the keyboard, the arpeggiator will
play a drum pattern at the specified tempo.

5 Lightly press the [TIMBRE/TRACK] key on the
beat, and slightly shorten the intervals at which
you press the key.
The playback tempo of the drum pattern will speed
up slightly.
Tap tempo control can be used whenever the

tempo cannot be controlled while a song is playing

The tap tempo control function can also be con-
trolled from a foot switch connected to the
