Using RPN to edit
RPN (Registered Parameter Number) is a type of message
that allows settings to be made in a way that is common
between instrument manufacturers. (NRPN (Non-registered
Parameter Numbers) and exclusive messages can be freely
used in non-compatible ways by different manufacturers
and models of instrument.)
RPN messages can be used for editing with the following
procedure.
1 Use RPN MSB (CC#101) [Bn, 65, mm] and RPN LSB
(CC#100) [Bn, 64, rr] (n: channel, mm, rr: upper and
lower bytes of the parameter number) messages to select
the parameter.
2 Use data entry MSB (CC#6) [Bn, 06, mm] and data entry
LSB (CC#38) [Bn, 26, vv] (n: channel, mm, vv: upper and
lower bytes of the value, together expressing 16,384 lev-
els) to specify the value.
3 You can use data increment (CC#96) [Bn, 60,00] or data
decrement (CC#97) [Bn, 61, 00] (n: channel, value is fi xed
at 00) to change the value in steps of one.
The TR can receive the following three RPN messages (tun-
ing, transpose, and pitch bend range).
Tuning
RPN fine tune [Bn, 65, 00, 64, 01]
This RPN message can be used to adjust the detuning for a
program or timbre (in Combination mode), or for a track (in
Sequencer mode).
The procedure is as follows.
1 [Bn, 65, 00, 64, 01]: Select RPN parameter 01.
2 [Bn, 06, mm, 26, vv]: Use data entry to set the value. A
value of 8192 [mm, vv=40, 00] is center, 0 [mm, vv=00,
00] is –100 cents, and 16383 [mm, vv=7F, 7F] is +99 cents.
You can use the universal exclusive Fine Tune message
to adjust the overall tuning that corresponds to the
"Master Tune" (GLOBAL 1.1–1a) parameter. (☞p.240
"About system exclusive messages")
Transposing
RPN coarse tune [Bn, 65, 00, 64, 02]
This RPN message can be used to adjust the transposition
for a program or timbre (in Combination mode), or for a
track (in Sequencer mode).
The procedure is as follows.
1 [Bn, 65, 00, 64, 02]: Select RPN parameter 02.
2 [Bn, 06, mm, 26, vv]: Use data entry to set the value.
Normally only the upper byte is used.
A value of 8192 [mm, vv=40, 00] is center, 6656 [mm, vv=34,
00] is –12 semitones, and 9728 [mm, vv=4C, 00] is +12 semi-
tones.
You can use the universal exclusive Coarse Tune mes-
sage to adjust the overall tuning that corresponds to the
"Key Transpose" (GLOBAL 1.1–1a) parameter. (☞p.240
"About system exclusive messages")
Changing the pitch bend range
RPN pitch bend range [Bn, 64, 00, 65, 00]
This RPN message can be used to adjust the pitch bend
range for a program or timbre (in Combination mode) or for
a track (in Sequencer mode).
The procedure is as follows.
1 [Bn, 65, 00, 64, 00]: Select RPN parameter 00.
2 [Bn, 06, mm, 26, vv]: Use data entry to set the value.
Normally only the upper byte is used.
A value of 0 [mm, vv=00, 00] is +00, and a value of 1536
[mm, vv=0C, 00] is +12 (one octave). Although it is possible
to set a negative value for a timbre/track, only positive val-
ues can be set using RPN messages.
Controlling the arpeggiator (NPRN)
Arpeggiator operations can be controlled using NRPN (Non
Registered Parameter Number) messages. NRPN messages
can be freely used in non-compatible ways by different man-
ufacturers and models of instrument.
The procedure for using NRPN messages is the same as for
RPN, but you will use NRPN MSB (CC#99) [Bn, 63, mm]
and NRPN LSB (CC#98) [Bn, 62, rr] messages (n: channel,
mm, rr: upper and lower bytes of the parameter number) to
specify the parameter.
NRPN arpeggiator on/off
[Bn, 63, 00, Bn, 62, 02, Bn, 06, mm]
This message will be transmitted when you press the [ARP
ON/OFF] key. When the switch is turned ON the data will
be mm=127 [7F], and when turned OFF the data will be
mm=0 [00], and the arpeggiator will be turned on/off
accordingly.
Similarly, the arpeggiator will be turned on/off when this
message is received. (ON when mm is 64 [40] or greater, and
OFF when 63 [3F] or less.)
NRPN arpeggiator gate control
[Bn, 63, 00, Bn, 62, 0A, Bn, 06, mm]
This message will be transmitted when you operate the
[ARP-GATE] knob (REALTIME CONTROLS [2] knob in C-
mode), and the arpeggiator gate will change. The same
effect will be applied when this message is received.
NRPN arpeggiator velocity control
[Bn, 63, 00, Bn, 62, 0B, Bn, 06, mm]
This message will be transmitted when you operate the
[ARP-VELOCITY] knob (REALTIME CONTROLS [3] knob
in C-mode), and the arpeggiator velocity will change. The
same effect will be applied when this message is received.
