Saving on external media
For details on the data that can be saved on external
media (SmartMedia etc.) ( p.41 "Types of data that
can be saved").
Song data and cue lists in the TRITON Le's
Sequencer mode, and multisamples and samples
in Sampling mode (if the EXB-SMPL option is
installed) cannot be written into internal memory.
This data will disappear when the power is turned
off. If you wish to keep this data, you must save it
on a SmartMedia or on other external SCSI storage
Other types of data can also be saved on a Smart-
Media, or (if the EXB-SMPL option is installed) on
external SCSI storage media (maximum 4 GB), and
loaded to restore the original settings even if they
have been modiﬁed. It is a good idea to save favor-
ite settings that you create.
As an example, we will explain how to save the
• Internal memory programs, combinations, global
settings, user drum kits, user arpeggio patterns
• Songs, cue lists
• Multisamples and samples created in Sampling
mode (if the separately sold EXB-SMPL option is
If you save this data to SmartMedia, you may need
to use more than one SmartMedia card.
1 Insert a SmartMedia card into the SmartMedia
For details on handling SmartMedia, please be sure
to read "Caution when handling SmartMedia"
If the EXB-SMPL option is installed, and you want
to save data on external SCSI media such as a hard
disk, refer to the manual included with the EXB-
SMPL and make sure that the external SCSI device
is connected correctly.
You will also need to format the media if necessary.
