In this mode, various types of internal memory data can be
saved/loaded to/from SD card or an external SCSI device (if
the EXB-SMPL option is installed).
For the types of SD card that can be used, refer to OG p.100.
About the EXB-SMPL option
If the EXB-SMPL option (sold separately), along with its 72-
pin SIMM memory module (16 Mbyte sample data RAM), is
installed, you will be able to save/load multisample and
sample data created in Sampling mode (☞p.147, 153), or
load/export AIFF ﬁles or WAVE ﬁles that were created on
your computer (☞p.148, 154).
Sample data RAM can be expanded by installing up to two
72-pin SIMM modules of either 32 MB or 16 MB (total maxi-
mum 64 MB).
Even if the EXB-SMPL is not installed, you can install
RAM in the 72-pin SIMM slots to allow loading of mul-
tisample or sample data created on the TRITON series,
or AIFF ﬁles and WAVE ﬁles. However in this case, it
will not be possible to edit the multisample or sample
In addition, an external SCSI device (hard drive, removable
media, etc.) can be connected to the SCSI connector of the
EXB-SMPL, allowing data to be saved on a hard drive etc. in
the same way as on an SD card, or allowing you to load data
For details on formatting, refer to p.156. For details on con-
nections and ID settings for external SCSI devices when the
EXB-SMPL option (sold separately) is installed, refer to the
operation manual included with the EXB-SMPL.
Files that can be loaded
6. Media mode
Files, directories, and icons
The TR manages data on SD card and other media in a hier-
archical manner, using ﬁles and directories. The contents of
a ﬁle (whether it is a ﬁle or a directory) are indicated not
only by the name but also graphically by an icon. Files and
directories have differently shaped icons.
On the TR, ﬁles and directories that can be recognized by
MS-DOS (i.e., read by an MS-DOS computer) are referred to
as DOS ﬁles and DOS directories.
Various types of DOS ﬁles are distinguished by the exten-
sion that is added to the ﬁlename.
In the case of a DOS ﬁle with an extension other than listed
below, selecting "Load selected" to access the dialog box
will cause the ﬁle to be considered to be a Standard MIDI
File (SMF). However, non-SMF ﬁles cannot be loaded.
When you save a ﬁle on the TR, one of these ﬁlename exten-
sions will automatically be added as appropriate for the
type of data.
If you change the ﬁlename extension of the following
ﬁles, they will be handled as undeﬁned ﬁles when you
attempt to load them again; they will not be loaded cor-
