not be edited.
Drum kit parameter change/User arpeggio pattern
parameter change
• In Global mode, you can edit drum kits and user
arpeggio patterns.
Since the other global parameters or Sequencer mode data
cannot be edited, you will use data dumps to transfer this
data. Data dumping of Sampling mode data is not sup-
The global MIDI channel is used to transmit and receive this
First check "Enable Exclusive" (GLOBAL 2.1–1b), so that
exclusive data can be transmitted and received. When you
change modes on the TR, a mode change message will trans-
mitted. When you change programs or combinations, the
parameters for one program or one combination will be
transmitted together with the program change. When you
edit individual parameters, parameter change, drum kit
parameter change, or user arpeggio pattern parameter
change messages will be transmitted.
When these messages are received, the same editing opera-
tion will be performed as on the transmitted device.
After MIDI exclusive data has been received and processed,
a Data Load Completed message will be transmitted. The
control master device must not transmit the next message
until this message is received (or until a sufficient interval of
time has elapsed).
When you change programs or combinations, or use param-
eter changes to edit, the changes will affect the data in the
edit buffer and will not be stored in internal memory unless
you Write, so that the changes will be lost if you re-select the
program or combination. The Write operation can be per-
formed by a MIDI exclusive Program Write Request or Com-
bination Write Request message, in addition to the usual
method of using this instrument's switches. (☞OG p.42
"Saving data")
It is not necessary to write a song, but it will not be backed
up when the power is turned off. If you wish to keep the
data, save it on external media before turning off the power.
(☞OG p.46 "Saving on external media")
If notes are "stuck"
If for some reason, notes become "stuck" and will not stop
sounding, you can usually stop the sound by changing the
mode. If notes played via MIDI are stuck, you can discon-
nect the MIDI cable.
MIDI transmits a message called Active Sensing [FE] at reg-
ular intervals. A device that receives this message will be
aware that an external MIDI device is transmitting to it. Sub-
sequently, if no MIDI messages are received for a certain
interval of time, the receiving device will decide that the
connection has been broken, and will turn off any notes that
had been sounded via MIDI and reset its controller values.
Playing the TR multi-timbrally from an
external device
The TR can be connected to an external device and played
multi-timbrally in the following ways.
• MIDI messages from the external device can play a
combination (8-part multi-timbral performance). You
can change the overall settings (programs, levels, and
effects) by using program change messages to switch
• MIDI messages from the external device can be used to
play a song (16-part multi-timbral performance). Overall
settings (programs, levels, effects etc.) can be changed by
using a Song Select message to switch songs. (Song
Select messages can be received if "MIDI Clock":
GLOBAL 2.1–1a is set to External or Ext-USB.)
• MIDI Clock messages from the external device can be
used to make the TR playback a song (set "MIDI Clock"
to External or Ext-USB, and run this instrument's
sequencer). You can change the overall settings
(programs, levels, effects) by using song select messages
to switch songs.
