Since the performance will be faithfully reproduced,
including detailed settings of this instrument, you
should use this format to save song data that is
intended for playback on this instrument.
• Standard MIDI Files
This format is not able to provide a totally faithful
reproduction of the performance on this instrument
in the way that this instrument's own format does
(although there will be no problem for normal play-
back), but does provide compatibility with other
SMF-compatible devices.
To load song data from SD card or save song data to SD
card, use Media mode. (

About MIDI
Track status "status"
You can make settings for this instrument's sequencer
to specify whether it will sound the internal tone gen-
erator or an external tone generator.
When Track Status "Status" (3.1: Param1, MIDI..8,
MIDI..16) is set to INT, operating this instrument's
keyboard and controllers will sound and control this
instrument's own tone generator.
When "Status" is set to EXT, EX2 or BTH, operating
this instrument's keyboard and controllers will sound
and control the external tone generator. (The MIDI
channel of the external tone generator must match the
"MIDI Channel" of the track that is set to EXT, EX2 or
BTH.) With a setting of BTH, both the external tone
generator and this instrument's tone generator will
sound and be controlled.
If you wish to use the Sequencer mode of the instru-
ment as a 16-track multi-timbral tone generator, select
INT or BTH. (
PG p.62 "Status")
Synchronizing the sequencer with an external MIDI
The record/playback tempo of this instrument's
sequencer can be synchronized to an external MIDI
device such as a sequencer or rhythm machine (
