This instrument contains a 16-multi track MIDI
sequencer. The sequencer is the center to which TR's
numerous functions are integrated, allowing it to be
used in a variety of situations including music produc-
tion and live performance.
When you turn off the power, the settings made in
Sequencer mode and the song data, cue list data,
and user pattern data that you recorded are not
backed up. If you wish to keep this data, you must
save it on external media (SD card etc.) before
turning off the power, or perform a MIDI data
dump to save the data on an external data filer etc.
If you wish to save the programs, track parame-
ters, effects, and arpeggiator function settings etc.
selected for a song as a template song, use the Util-
ity menu command "Save Template Song."
Immediately after the power is turned on, this

song data, so if you wish to playback a song on the
sequencer, you must first load data from external
media (SD card etc.) or receive a MIDI data dump
from an external MIDI sequencer (

Features of the sequencer

• The sequencer lets you record a maximum of
200,000 events (note data etc.), up to 200 songs, and
as many as 999 measures per song.
• Up to 20 cue lists can be created.
A cue list is an arrangement of up to 99 songs that
will be played as a chain. You can specify the num-
ber of times that each song will repeat. Songs in a
cue list can also be converted into a single song.
• The arpeggiator function can be used for playback
or recording.
• The RPPR (Realtime Pattern Play/Recording)
function can be used for playback or recording.
• Sixteen different template songs are built-in, and
contain program and effect settings suitable for
various musical styles. Up to sixteen original
templates that you create can be saved as user
template songs.
• One stereo insertion effect, two master effects,
and a stereo master EQ can be used for each song.
• Timing resolution is a maximum of /192.
• Sixteen tracks are provided for musical data, and a
master track contains time signature and tempo
data that controls the playback.
• A track play loop function lets you loop specified
measures independently for each track.
• 150 preset patterns ideal for drum tracks are built
in. In addition, you can create up to 100 user
patterns for each song. These patterns can be used
as musical data within a song, or can be played by
the RPPR function.
