2.1–1a: MIDI Setup
Sets the global MIDI channel.
The global MIDI channel is used in the following cases.
• When transmitting and receiving performance data in
Program mode (PROG 1.1: Play) and Sampling mode
(if the EXB-SMPL option is installed).
• When selecting combinations via MIDI in Combination
mode (COMBI 1.1: Play).
• When controlling timbres or effects that have been set
to Gch in various modes
• When transmitting and receiving system exclusive
About MIDI reception
In Program mode (PROG 1.1: Play) and Sampling mode (if
the EXB-SMPL option is installed), MIDI data is received on
the global MIDI channel, but in Combination mode (COMBI
1.1: Play) or Sequencer mode, MIDI data is received on the
MIDI channel speciﬁed for each timbre or track.
In Combination mode (COMBI 1.1: Play), program changes
received on the global MIDI channel will switch the combi-
Use the global MIDI channel to switch IFX , MFX1 and MFX2
on/off. To control the pan following IFX, sends 1/2, MFX 1/2
and MEQ, use the global MIDI channel in Program mode; in
Combination, or Sequencer mode, use the channel speciﬁed sep-
arately by "Control Channel" for IFX, MFX1, MFX2, and MEQ.
By setting "Control Channel" to Gch, you can control these
parameters from the global MIDI channel.
MIDI transmission when this instrument's controllers are
In Program mode and Sampling mode (if the EXB-SMPL
option is installed), this data will be transmitted on the glo-
bal MIDI channel. In Combination mode, data will be trans-
mitted simultaneously on the global MIDI channel and on
the MIDI channels of timbres whose "Status" (COMBI 3.1–1)
is set to EXT or EX2.
In Sequencer mode, musical data will be transmitted on the
channel speciﬁed for the currently selected track (whose
"Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2).
This setting speciﬁes which of the note messages played on
this instrument's keyboard or received via MIDI will be
sounded. If you connect another TR unit to this instrument
in order to increase the total polyphony, set one unit to Even
and the other to Odd, and set both units to sound.
All: All note numbers will be received. Normally you will
leave this set to All.
Even: Even-numbered notes (C, D, E, F#, G#, A#) will sound.
Odd: Odd-numbered notes (C#, D#, F , G, A, B) will sound.
This setting has no effect on the MIDI data that is
Set this parameter when you wish to synchronize an exter-
nal MIDI device (sequencer or rhythm machine etc.) with
the TR's internal arpeggiator or sequencer.
Internal: The internal arpeggiator and sequencer will syn-
chronize to the TR's own internal clock.
Select the Internal setting when using the TR by itself, or
when you want the TR to be the master (controlling device)
so that another connected external MIDI device will syn-
chronize to the MIDI Clock messages transmitted from the
External: The arpeggiator and sequencer of the TR will syn-
chronize to MIDI Clock messages transmitted from an exter-
nal MIDI device connected to the MIDI IN connector.
Ext-USB: The TR will synchronize to the MIDI Clock mes-
sages transmitted by an external MIDI device connected to
the USB B connector, and the internal arpeggiator and inter-
nal sequencer of the TR will operate as a slave device.
Use the External or Ext-USB setting when you are using this
instrument as a slave (controlled device) that synchronizes
to the MIDI Clock messages received from an external MIDI
device. This instrument will respond to MIDI real-time mes-
sages (Start, Stop, Continue, Song Select, Song Position
Pointer) from an external sequencer.
Audition playback will occur at the pre-speciﬁed
tempo, regardless of the "MIDI Clock" setting.
RT (Realtime Command)
Off (Unchecked): If "MIDI Clock" is set to External or Ext-
USB, MIDI common messages and realtime messages (song
position pointer, start, continue, stop) from the MIDI IN con-
nector will not be received. (Song Select messages will con-
tinue to be received.)
Use this setting if the TR's song parameters are being
unnecessarily reset due to these messages being
received from an external MIDI sequencer.
On (Checked): The above common messages (including
Song Select) and realtime messages will be received.
This setting is not available if "MIDI Clock" is set to
This setting speciﬁes the location at which the Transpose,
Velocity Curve, and After Touch Curve settings will be
applied. This setting will affect the MIDI data that is trans-
mitted and received, and the data that is recorded on the

When using this instrument's keyboard to play the internal
tone generator, the Transpose, Velocity Curve, and After
Touch Curve settings will always take effect regardless of
PreMIDI: Velocity Curve, After Touch Curve, and Trans-
pose will be applied to the data that is transmitted from this
