Song data and cue lists in the TR's Sequencer
mode, and multisamples and samples in Sampling
mode (if the EXB-SMPL option is installed) cannot
be written into internal memory. This data will dis-
appear when the power is turned off. If you wish
to keep this data, you must save it on an SD card
or on other external SCSI storage media.
Other types of data can also be saved on an SD
card, or (if the EXB-SMPL option is installed) on
external SCSI storage media (maximum 4 GB), and
loaded to restore the original settings even if they
have been modiﬁed. It is a good idea to save favor-

As an example, we will explain how to save the
• Internal memory programs, combinations, global
settings, user drum kits, user arpeggio patterns
• Songs, cue lists
• Multisamples and samples created in Sampling
mode (if the separately sold EXB-SMPL option is

use more than one SD card.

If the EXB-SMPL option is installed, and you want

you will be asked whether you want to Overwrite.
If you want to overwrite, press the [F8] ("OK") key.
If you want to save without overwriting, press the
[F7] ("Cancel") key, repeat the procedure from step
5, rename the data in step 6, and then save it.
If when saving a .KSC ﬁle, the save destination
media already contains a directory with the same

message of "File already exists" will be displayed,
and it will not be possible to execute the Save
If this occurs, you can either change the name of
the .KSC ﬁle you are saving, change the name of
