TR provides a high-performance 16-track MIDI
sequencer, with more than sufﬁcient power for use as a
stand-alone sequencer. The sequencer can serve as the
core that brings together TR's numerous capabilities,
allowing it to serve as an integrated music worksta-

TR features a RPPR (Realtime Pattern Play/Record-
In Sequencer mode, this function allows you to assign
preset patterns or user patterns (with a speciﬁed play-
back track) to individual keys on the keyboard, and
playback or record that pattern in realtime simply by
pressing the assigned key. Numerous preset patterns,
including patterns ideal for drum tracks, are built into
the internal memory.
Dual polyphonic arpeggiator
• Five preset arpeggio patterns (UP, DOWN, ALT1
ALT2, RANDOM) and 216 user arpeggio patterns
are provided. With the factory settings, these
contain a wide variety of preset user patterns.
In addition to providing conventional arpeggiator
functionality, the polyphonic arpeggiator of the TR
can respond to the pitches or timing at which you
play the keyboard, and produce a diverse range of
chords or phrases. This can be used to play a variety
of drum phrases (using the "Fixed Note Mode" that
is ideal for drums), bass phrases, or guitar and key-
board backing riffs. The arpeggiator is also effective
for use with subtly moving pads, synth sounds, or
In Combination mode, and Sequencer mode, the TR
provides dual arpeggiators that can simultaneously
play two arpeggio patterns. You can apply separate
arpeggio patterns to drum and bass programs, or
use keyboard splits or velocity to switch between
arpeggio patterns for an even more dynamic perfor-
4 channel audio output
• In addition to the L/MONO and R main stereo
audio outputs, TR provides two individual audio
outputs, for a total of four channels of audio
output. The sound from each oscillator, drum,
timbre/track, or insertion effect can be routed
freely to any output.
EXB-SMPL sampling upgrade
The following functionality can be added by installing
the separately sold EXB-SMPL option.
• Sampling mode is added. Input sources from the
two-channel audio inputs can be sampled and
edited to create original multisamples or samples,
which can then be used in a program or drum kit.
For details on the features of Sampling mode, refer
• Two-channel audio input is added. This two-
channel audio input allows 48 kHz 16 bit linear
mono/stereo sampling. A MIC or LINE level select
switch and level adjustment control supports a
wide range of external audio sources, from mic
level to line level.
The audio input can also be routed to the effects.
You can apply an effect while sampling, or use the
TR as a 2-in/4-out effect processor.
• A SCSI connector is added, allowing external SCSI
devices such as hard disks to be connected. A
connected external SCSI device can be used in the
same way as an SD card to save or load data.
