Sequencer Data
When you save data dumps from this instrument to a
MIDI data filer, do not save multiple data dumps
together. If this data is saved together, there will be
insufficient time for this instrument to write each
received portion into memory before the next portion of
data arrives, so that it will be impossible to receive all of
the data correctly.
Do not touch this instrument's switches or turn off the
power while data is being received.
Before receiving data, we recommend that you close the
various dialog boxes, page menus, or utility commands
(with the exception of the "Receive and Save MIDI
Exclusive Data" dialog box (MEDIA 1.1–2a: Save Exclu-
sive). It is not possible to receive dump data in the
Sequencer mode SEQ 2.1: CUE List page when you
have pressed the [F7] ("EDIT") key and are editing the
cue list. In this case, you must press the [F7] ("DONE")
key and exit cue list editing if you need to receive data.
After a data dump is received, this instrument will
require up to 20 seconds to process the data and write it
into memory. During this time, the display will indicate
"Now writing into internal memory." While this dis-
play is shown, you must under no circumstances turn
off the power of this instrument. If the power is turned
off during this time, this instrument may fail to operate
correctly when the power is turned on again. If this
occurs, hold down the [MENU] key and the [9] key
while you turn on the power. However when this is
done, the contents of memory will be initialized.
Transmission and reception of MIDI data is also impos-
sible during this time. When receiving multiple data
dumps in succession, you must allow an interval
between the transmission of each data dump. ( ☞ refer to
the table below)

While this instrument is writing the data into memory,
transmission of Active Sensing (FEh) messages from the
MIDI OUT connector or USB B connector will stop.
Data dump reception procedure
1 Connect this instrument and the device that will receive
the data dump.
If you're using a computer that is able to transmit MIDI
exclusive messages, connect the computer's USB connec-
tor to the TR's USB B connector. Alternatively, connect
the MIDI OUT connector of your computer's MIDI inter-
face to the TR's MIDI IN connector (☞p.233).
If you are using a MIDI data filer, connect the MIDI OUT
connector of the data filer to the MIDI IN connector of
this instrument.
Some USB-MIDI interface devices may not be able to
transmit or receive the TR's MIDI exclusive messages.
2 Set the MIDI channel of the MIDI device to match the
global MIDI channel "MIDI Channel" (2.1–1a) of this
instrument. If data that was previously transmitted to the
MIDI device is now going to be received again by this
instrument, set the global MIDI channel of this instru-
ment to the same global MIDI channel setting that was
used when transmitting the data.
To set the MIDI channel of the transmitting device, refer
to the owner's manual for that device.
3 Turn check the "Exclusive" setting (2.1–1b).
4 Transmit the data from the other device. For the proce-
dure, refer to the owner's manual for the device you are
using. While the data is being received, the display will
indicate "Now received MIDI data."

GLOBAL 3.1: User Scale

Here you can create sixteen User Octave Scales and one User
All Notes Scale. The user scales you create here can be
selected in the PROG 2.1–1, COMBI 3.2–1, SEQ 3.2–1(2).
If you wish to keep an edited user scale after the power
is turned off, be sure to write (save) your settings.
This data is written by the Utility "Write Global Set-
ting." Alternatively, you can press the [REC/WRITE]
key to access the Write Global Setting dialog box, and
press the [F8] ("OK") key to write the edited data.
3.1–1: Octave
3.1–1a: User Octave Scale
User Octave
Select the user octave scale that you wish to edit.
Specifies the scale for one octave of notes.
When you adjust the pitch of each note in the octave (C–B)
in one-cent steps, your settings will be applied to all octaves.
This adjustment is relative to equal temperament.
A setting of –99 lowers the pitch approximately a semitone
below normal pitch.
A setting of +99 raises the pitch approximately a semitone
above normal pitch.
