SEQ 1.1: Play/REC
Here you can select a song, begin to create a new song, or
make basic settings such as selecting the program used by
Here you can select a song, make settings for song play-
back/recording, and turn RPPR on/off.
1.1–1a: Location, Meter, Reso (Resolution),
(Tempo), Tempo Mode
This display shows the current position in the song. From
the left, the numbers are the measure, beat, and clock. When
you modify these values, the current location will change.
When "MIDI Clock" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a) is Internal,
changing the location will cause Song Position Pointer
messages to be transmitted. If this parameter is set to
External or Ext-USB and "RT" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a) is On
(checked), Song Position Pointer messages from the
speciﬁed source will change the location.
The range in which the beat and clock can be modiﬁed
will depend on the currently speciﬁed time signature.
This is the time signature at the current location of the song.
The time signature can be changed at each measure.
*/*: This will be displayed when you press the [REC/
WRITE] key. Specify this when you wish to use the time sig-
nature that is already recorded for that measure, and wish to
record without changing the time signature.
1/4–16/4, 1/8–16/8, 1/16–16/16: This is the time signature at
the current location of the song.
After pressing the front panel [REC/WRITE] key, specify the
time signature here. Then press the [START/STOP] key to
begin recording, and the speciﬁed time signature will be
recorded on the Master Track and on previously-recorded
Be aware that if you press the [START/STOP] key during
the pre-count to stop recording, the time signature will not
Normally, you will specify the time signature when you
record the ﬁrst track, and select */* when recording subse-

Changing the time signature in the middle of a measure
If you know beforehand the location at which you wish to
change time signatures in the middle of a measure, use
"Insert Measure" (5.2–1b) to specify and insert the time sig-
nature for each measure of the same time signature, and
then record your musical data. Alternatively, if you wish to
change the time signature in the middle of a song which
already contains musical data, use "Track Select" (1.1–1c) to
specify the Master Track (or any Track01–16 which contains
data), and use "Event Edit" (5.2–1b) to modify the time sig-
nature of the Bar event.
If the number of beats in a measure increases when you
modify the time signature, rests will be inserted in the por-
tion that was added. Conversely if the number of beats
decreases, that portion will not be played. However if you
return to the original time signature, the data that had been
hidden will once again be played.
Reso (Real-time Quantize Resolution)
This corrects the timing of data as it is recorded in real-time.
(It does not affect previously-recorded data.)
Hi (High Resolution): Timing will not be corrected. Data
will be recorded at the maximum resolution ( /192).
3 – : Data will be corrected to the nearest interval of the
speciﬁed timing as it is recorded. For example if you select
3 , data will be corrected to the nearest 32nd note triplet
interval. If you select , data will be corrected to the nearest
quarter note interval.
With a setting of
Since all of the musical data that is recorded into the
sequencer will be corrected to the speciﬁed timing resolu-
tion, coarse settings of this parameter will cause continuous
controllers such as pitch bend to be recorded in "stairstep"
In such cases, use a setting of Hi to record, and then use
"Quantize" (5.2–1b) to correct only the desired type of data
(notes etc.). It is best to avoid recording at a stiff resolution
to begin with.
This sets the playback tempo of the song and the tempo of
040...240: When the "Tempo Mode" is Manu, this tempo will
be used for recording and playback. When "Tempo Mode"
is REC, this tempo will be recorded on the master track.
EXT: This will appear when "MIDI Clock" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a)
is External or Ext-USB. The tempo of the internal sequencer
will synchronize with the MIDI Clock messages received
from an external sequencer etc. When "MIDI Clock" is Inter-
nal, the above tempo setting (040...240) will be used.
If Tempo is selected as an alternate modulation source,
= 120 will be the base value.
