DATA FILE (RECEIVING)
SQD-8 can save special tone color data of various
kinds of instruments such as synthesizer, etc.
(exclusive data). Memory volume is 32 K byte.
Within this limit it can memorize as many units
as required one by one. (about 7.5K byte for DS-8
and about 7.5 K byte for 707)

When SAVE finishes, both indication
is advisable to put tone color data on A
side and play data on B side of QD.
See p. 19 concerning error indication.
After using the data file function (either
transmission or receiving), return to the
sequence function by pushing RESET
or by loading play data.
If QD, where data is already input, has more
room for memory, it can continue to save
new system exclusive data.
When data of several instruments of the
same kind are written on one side of QD,
change MIDI channel of each instrument.
(But if FORMAT ID of exclusive message is
fixed, no difference will be made, though it is
written on the same side of QD.)
As data can be transmitted to SQD-8 by only
pushing function key in case of KORG DS-8
or 707, first put synthesizer in a condition to
be able to transmit data and put SQD-8 in
the condition to receive it.
In the case of data of DDD-1I5 being stored
with other instruments on one side of QD
store DDD-I/5 data first.
LOAD FROM DISK
Performance data saved on QD is put in the
internal memory of SQD-8. (This is called load.)
Take care, as all original data stored in the
internal memory of SQD-8 will be erased by
If QD is set in SQD-8, when power supply is
off, load is automatically available, when
power supply is turned on.
