1–1D: Convert to Song (Convert Cue List to Song)
This command converts a cue list consisting of multiple
songs to a single song. Although it is not possible to record
additional tracks into a cue list, you can convert the cue list
to a song, and then record solos etc. onto open tracks. Also,
it will be necessary to convert a cue list to a song if you wish
to write it to a ﬂoppy disk as SMF data. During the conver-
sion, the track and effect settings of the song speciﬁed for
"Step" 01 will be copied to the beginning of the resulting
song, and all track and effect settings of subsequent songs
will use the settings of the song for "Step" 01.
The "Convert to Song" command converts a cue list to a
song as described below.
Song/Track parameters will use the settings of the "Step" 01
The MIDI channel of each track will be according to the
settings of the "Step" 01 song. If "Step" 02 and follow-
ing songs have different settings, it may not be possible
to convert the playback result of the cue list into a song.
As far as possible, try to keep the MIDI channel assign-
ments consistent between songs that you intend to use
as part of a play list that will be converted into a song.
The following track parameters will not be reﬂected in the
conversion. As with the MIDI channels, we recommend that
you keep these settings consistent between all songs in the

Converting Song/Track parameters into track events
Second and subsequent repeats of the "Step" 01 song, and
the settings of "Step" 02 and following songs will all be con-
verted into track events (musical data). The following data
will be converted.
If "Pan" (0–3b, 4b) is Random, it will be converted to C064.
If "Portamento" (2–3a, 4a) is PRG, or if "Bend Range" is
PRG or a negative value, these will not be reﬂected in the
"Detune" (2–5a, 6a) will be divided into RPN Fine Tun-
ing and Coarse Tuning, and converted into events. For
example if the "Detune" setting of +600, Fine Tuning
will be 00 and Coarse Tuning will be 6. Fine Tuning will
modify the playback pitch (Detune). Coarse Tuning will
change the notes that are played back (Transpose). For
this reason with some programs such as drum pro-
grams, the playback result produced by a cue list may
not be reproduced when the cue list is converted into a
Converting "Track Play Loop" (P0: PlyLoop 1–8, 9–16 tab)
If "Track Play Loop" is on, the area from "Loop Start" to
"Loop End" will be expanded as far as the last measure in
the master track.
If "Track Play Loop" is M005–M008, and the master track
contains 10 measures, the data will be expanded from the
beginning of the track as M005, 6, 7, 8, M005, 6, 7, 8,
Patterns in the "Step" 01 song will be copied as patterns of
the converted song.
If there is a second or subsequent repeat for "Step" 01, or if
the tracks of "Step" 02 and subsequent songs contain pat-
terns, they will be expanded into track events (musical
