■ About MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and is
a world-wide standard for exchanging various types of
musical data between electronic musical instruments and
computers. When MIDI cables are used to connect two or
more MIDI devices, performance data can be exchanged
between the devices, even if they were made by different
manufacturers.
■ Connecting MIDI devices/computers
(MIDI connectors)
Controlling an external MIDI tone generator
from this instrument
When you wish to use the TR's keyboard, controllers, and
sequencer etc. to play an external MIDI tone generator, use a
MIDI cable to connect this instrument's MIDI OUT connec-
tor to the MIDI IN connector of the external MIDI tone gen-
erator.

Controlling this instrument's tone generator
from an external MIDI device
When you wish to play or control the TR's tone generator
from an external MIDI keyboard or sequencer etc., use a
MIDI cable to connect the MIDI OUT connector of the exter-
nal MIDI device to the MIDI IN connector of this instru-
ment.
MIDI IN
TR
Controlling two or more external MIDI tone
generators from this instrument
You can use the MIDI THRU jack to simultaneously control
multiple MIDI devices. (This type of connection should be
used to connect no more than three devices. If you wish to
connect a larger number of MIDI devices, we recommend
that you use a MIDI patch bay as shown in the second dia-
gram below.)

The "Convert Position" setting
On the TR, the parameters "Key Transpose," "Velocity
Curve" and "AfterT Curve" (GLOBAL 1.1–1a) allow you to
transpose the pitch, adjust the velocity sensitivity, and
adjust the after touch sensitivity (☞p.124).
The effect that these settings will have on the internal
sequencer and on the MIDI data that is transmitted and
received will depend on "Convert Position" (GLOBAL 2.1–
1a) setting (☞p.129).
• When controlling an external MIDI tone generator from
the TR, select Pre MIDI. The above-listed settings will
affect the MIDI data that is transmitted. These settings
will also affect the data that is recorded on the internal
sequencer.
Incoming MIDI data will be handled with settings equiv-
alent to "Key Transpose" 0, "Velocity Curve" 4, and
"AfterT Curve" 3.
• When controlling the TR's tone generator from an
external MIDI device, select PostMIDI. The above-listed
settings will affect the MIDI data that is received. These
settings will also affect the data that is played back from
the internal sequencer.
Outgoing MIDI data will be handled with settings equiv-
alent to "Key Transpose" 0, "Velocity Curve" 4, and
"AfterT Curve" 3.
Connecting an external MIDI sequencer or
computer etc.
If you want to use the TR as an input keyboard and MIDI
sound module for a MIDI sequencer or MIDI application
running on your computer, make connections as follows.
Connections to a MIDI sequencer
Connect the TR's MIDI OUT connector to the MIDI IN con-
nector of your MIDI sequencer, and the MIDI OUT connec-
tor of your MIDI sequencer to the TR's MIDI IN connector.
Connections using a MIDI interface
Connect the TR's MIDI OUT and MIDI IN connectors to the
MIDI interface of your computer.

Some models of USB-MIDI interface may be unable to
transmit or receive the TR's MIDI exclusive messages.
If MIDI data is being transmitted from the TR via USB
to your computer, transmission from the MIDI OUT
connector is halted.
