Synchronizing the playback of the arpeg-
giator or sequencer
The choice of whether the TR will be the master (the control-
ling device) or the slave (the controlled device) is made by
"MIDI Clock" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a).
Using this instrument as master and the external
MIDI device as slave
Connect the MIDI OUT connector of the TR to the MIDI IN
connector of your external MIDI device (☞p.233). Alterna-
tively, connect the USB B connector of the TR to the USB
connector of your computer.
• When you set "MIDI Clock" to Internal, this instrument
will be the master device, and will transmit MIDI timing
clock messages.
Arpeggiator: The tempo can be controlled from this
instrument. Simultaneously, the performance of the
arpeggiator will be transmitted via MIDI. (In Combina-
tion, Sequencer modes, data will be transmitted by tim-
bres/tracks whose "Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2.) An
external tone generator connected to MIDI OUT will
sound, and the tempo of an external sequencer can be
controlled.
Sequencer: The musical data can be played back and
controlled on the TR. Simultaneously, the sequencer
playback will be transmitted via MIDI from tracks whose
"Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2. An external tone generator
connected to MIDI OUT will sound, and the tempo of an
external sequencer can be controlled.
However, since exclusive data cannot be recorded on the
TR's sequencer, you can use the "Dump Sequencer"
(GLOBAL 2.1–1c) utility menu command if the slave
device is the TR. If the slave device is another model, you
can use the TR's Media mode data filer function
("Receive and Save MIDI Exclusive," "Load and Trans-
mit MIDI Exclusive Data"). (☞p.146, 154)
Using the external MIDI device as master and this
instrument as slave
Connect the MIDI IN connector of the TR to the MIDI OUT
connector of your external MIDI device (☞p.233). Alterna-
tively, connect the USB B connector of the TR to the USB
connector of your computer.
• When you set "MIDI Clock" to External or Ext-USB, the
TR will be the slave device.
Arpeggiator: The tempo will follow the MIDI timing
clock. If you playback the external sequencer, the TR's
arpeggiator will synchronize to the external timing clock.
(☞OG p.111)
Even if "MIDI Clock" is External or Ext-USB and the TR
is being controlled from the external device, the perfor-
mance of the arpeggiator performance will still be trans-
mitted via MIDI. (In Combination and Sequencer modes,
the arpeggiator performance will be transmitted from
timbres/tracks whose "Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2.)
Sequencer: The tempo will follow the MIDI timing clock.
You can play back an external sequencer, and synchro-
nize the sequencer to the MIDI timing clock that it trans-
mits. Even if "MIDI Clock" is set to External or Ext-USB
and the TR is being controlled from an external device,
musical data will be transmitted by tracks whose "Sta-
tus" is BTH, EXT, or EX2.

Recording musical data from an external
device
There are two ways in which you can play back an external
sequencer and record its playback on this instrument.
• Set "MIDI Clock" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a) to Internal, begin
recording, and then start the external sequencer. With
this method, the MIDI messages will be recorded
without the two devices being synchronized. Since the
incoming musical data will simply be recorded, this
method allows the performance to be reproduced
faithfully, but since measure divisions etc. will not be
kept track of, this method is not suitable if you intend to
edit the data later.
• If you set "MIDI Clock" to External or Ext-USB, the start
of recording and the tempo etc. will all be under the
control of the external sequencer. Since the two devices
will be synchronized during the recording process,
measure divisions etc. will be accurately preserved. (You
will need to set the time signature before recording.)
However, tempo changes during the performance will
not be recorded, so you will have to insert any tempo
changes later. For normal multi-track recording, you will
use this method. (☞OG p.83 "Multi (multitrack
recording)")
Recording the MIDI output of this instru-
ment's controllers, arpeggiator, and internal
sequencer on an external sequencer/com-
puter
If you wish to record the MIDI output of the TR's control-
lers, arpeggiator, and internal sequencer on an external
sequencer or computer and use the TR as the monitoring
and playback tone generator while you record, you must
turn off the TR's Local Control setting ("Local Control On"
GLOBAL 2.1–1a), and set your external sequencer/com-
puter for echo-back (a function by which the data received
at MIDI IN is retransmitted without change from MIDI
OUT) so that the data from the TR's controllers, arpeggiator
and internal sequencer will not be applied in duplicate to
the tone generator.
Using the REALTIME CONTROLS [1]–[4] knobs to
record MIDI control changes on an external MIDI
sequencer/computer
Set the TR to Local Control Off. Set the external MIDI
sequencer/computer to Echo Back On. With these settings,
recording and playback will occur correctly, and the control
changes will not be applied to the tone generator in dupli-
cate.
