Connections using the USB B connector
Connect the TR's USB B connector to the USB port of your
computer, and make the appropriate driver settings.
For details on the types of computer and operating sys-
tem that the TR supports, refer to p.265.
computer
If MIDI data is being transmitted from the TR via USB
to your computer, transmission from the MIDI OUT
connector is halted.
Local Control On settings
When connections are made as shown above, turn on the
Echo Back function of the external MIDI sequencer or com-
puter (so that data received at MIDI IN will be re-transmit-
ted from MIDI OUT), and turn off the TR's Local Control
setting (so that this instrument's keyboard and tone genera-
tor will be internally disconnected). When you play the key-
board of the TR, the musical data will be transmitted to the
external MIDI sequencer or computer, and then echoed back
to play the TR tone generator. In other words, by turning
Local Control OFF, you can prevent notes from being
sounded in duplicate, as would otherwise occur if a note
were sounded by the TR's own keyboard and again by the
data that was echoed-back.
If the arpeggiator function is on, playing the TR's keyboard
will not cause the arpeggiator to operate, and only the musi-
cal data produced by playing the keyboard will be transmit-
ted. The arpeggiator will operate only in response to the
notes that are echoed-back and received at MIDI IN. In this
way, turning off Local Control prevents the arpeggiator
from operating in duplicate.
Use this setting when you wish to record on the external
MIDI sequencer or computer only the notes that trigger the
arpeggiator, and to use the echoed-back notes to operate the
arpeggiator while monitoring your recording or during
playback.
If you want the note data produced by the arpeggiator
to be recorded on the external sequencer/computer, set
Local Control on, and turn off the Echo Back setting of
the external sequencer/computer.
To turn off Local Control, the "Local Control On" (GLOBAL
2.1–1a) check box to uncheck it (☞p.130).
When using the TR by itself, leave Local Control turned on.
(If this is off when this instrument is used by itself, playing
the keyboard will not produce sound.)

■ Messages transmitted and received

[...] indicates hexadecimal notation
MIDI channels
MIDI messages can be exchanged when the transmitting
and receiving devices are set to the same MIDI channel.
MIDI uses sixteen channels, numbered 1–16. The way in
which channels are handled will differ depending on the
mode.
Program mode, Sampling mode (if the EXB-SMPL option (sold
separately) is installed)
• Transmission/reception is performed on the global
MIDI channel*.
* The global MIDI channel is the basic channel that this
instrument uses for MIDI transmission/reception, and
is set by "MIDI Channel" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a).
Combination mode
• The global MIDI channel is used to transmit/receive
messages for selecting a combination and turning effects
on/off, and to transmit/receive exclusive data.
• The MIDI channel specified for each timbre (in COMBI
3.1–1a) is used to transmit/receive MIDI data for each
timbre.
• The MIDI channel specified for the insert effect and
master effects (in MIDI channel "Control Ch (control
Channel)" (COMBI 7.1–2b, 7.2–1a, 7.2–1c)) is used to
control dynamic modulation, and to control the pan and
send 1/2 after the sound has passed through the insert
effects.
• When you operate the keyboard or controllers of the TR,
messages will be transmitted on the global MIDI
channel, and will also be transmitted on the MIDI
channel of any timbre whose "Status" (COMBI 3.1–1a) is
set to EXT or EX2.
• Channel messages will be received if they match the
MIDI channel of a timbre whose "Status" is set to INT
(☞p.36 "Status" and "MIDI Channel").
Sequencer mode
• The global MIDI channel is used to transmit/receive
exclusive data and for messages that switch effects on/
off.
• MIDI data of each track is transmitted/received on the
MIDI channel specified for each track (In Sequencer
mode, this will be the settings of SEQ 3.1–1(2)a.)
• The MIDI channel specified for the insert effect and
master effects (in SEQ 7.1–3b, 7.2–1a, 7.2–1c) is used to
control dynamic modulation, and to control the pan and
send 1/2 after the sound has passed through the insert
effect.
• When you operate the keyboard or controllers of the TR,
messages will be transmitted on the MIDI channel
selected by "Track Select" (SEQ 1.1–1c). However,
messages will be transmitted only if the track selected by
"Track Select" has a "Status" of BTH, EXT, or EX2. (
☞p.51 "Track Select"–
• When Sequencer is played back, musical data of tracks
whose "Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2 will be transmitted
on the specified MIDI channels.
• Tracks whose "Status" is INT or BTH will receive
channel messages of the matching MIDI channel (☞p.62
"Status" and "MIDI Channel").
