Musical data


There are two types of patterns: preset patterns and
user patterns.
• Preset patterns: Patterns suitable for drum tracks
are preset in internal memory, and can be selected
for any song.
• User patterns: Each song can have up to 100
patterns. When using a pattern in a different song,
use the Utility menu commands "Copy Pattern" or
"Copy From Song" etc. to copy the pattern. The
pattern length can be specified in units of a
Each pattern consists of musical data for one track. It is
not possible to create patterns that contain multiple
These patterns can be used as track musical data by
being placed in a track (Utility menu command "Put
to Track") or copied to a track (Utility menu command
"Copy to Track"). Alternatively, you can use a pattern
with the RPPR function of a song.

Cue List

A cue list allows you to playback multiple songs in
succession. The TR allows you to create 20 cue lists.
Each cue list allows you to connect a maximum of 99
songs in any order, and to specify the number of times
that each song will repeat.
The page menu command "Convert to Song" lets you
convert the two or more songs in a cue list into a single
song. This allows you to use a cue list to create the
backing, then convert the cue list into a song and add
solo phrases on unused tracks.
