Press the [EDIT] button to make it light-up, and use the [PARAMETER/
FX CONTROL 1] knob to select "MIDI CLK." Then use the [VALUE/FX
CONTROL 2] knob to select "INT." The microSAMPLER will be the
master device, and will transmit MIDI timing clock messages (☞p.40
"MIDI CLK (MIDI Clock)").
Set your external MIDI device to receive incoming MIDI clock data. The
external MIDI device (e.g., sequencer or rhythm machine) will operate
using the tempo speciﬁed by the microSAMPLER.
Using the external MIDI device as the master and the microSAMPLER
as the slave
Connect the microSAMPLER's MIDI IN connector to your external MIDI
device's MIDI OUT connector.
Press the [EDIT] button to make it blink, and use the [PARAMETER/FX
CONTROL 1] knob to select the "GLOBAL" page.
Press the [EDIT] button to make it light, and use the [PARAMETER/FX
CONTROL 1] knob to select "MIDI CLK." Then use the [VALUE/FX
CONTROL 2] knob to select "EXT MIDI" so that the microSAMPLER
will operate as the slave device. Set your external MIDI device to trans-
mit MIDI timing clock messages as the master device (☞p.40 "MIDI
CLK (MIDI Clock)").
The microSAMPLER's pattern sequencer and delay effect tempo will
synchronize to the tempo of the external MIDI device (e.g., sequencer or
If the "GLOBAL" page MIDI CLK parameter is set to "AUTO," the microSAM-
PLER will automatically work using the "EXT MIDI" setting when MIDI clock
messages are being received from an external MIDI device connected to the
microSAMPLER's MIDI IN connector. Otherwise, the microSAMPLER will oper-
ate using the "INT" setting.
About MIDI messages
1. MIDI channel
There are sixteen MIDI channels (1–16). MIDI messages will be received if
the channel of the receiving device matches the channel of the transmitting
The way in which channels are handled will depend on the microSAM-
• Global MIDI channel setting
This is set by the "GLOBAL" page GLOBAL.CH parameter (☞p.39 "GLO-
BAL.CH (Global MIDI Channel)").
• Keyboard MIDI channel setting
This is set by the "GLOBAL" page KB.MIDI.CH parameter (☞p.39
"KB.MIDI.CH (Keyboard MIDI Channel)").
The global MIDI channel is the basic MIDI channel that the microSAMPLER
uses to transmit and receive MIDI messages.
In Sample mode, MIDI messages are transmitted and received on the global
Note-on [9n, kk vv], Note-off [8n, kk, vv]
(n: channel, kk: note number, vv: velocity)
Note-on/off messages are transmitted when you play the microSAMPLER's
keyboard. The note-off velocity is transmitted with a ﬁxed value of 64, but is
