Cue List Select
Indicates the cue list that you wish to play.
When using a cue list to play songs, you must ﬁrst load the
necessary data into internal memory, either from SD card, or
by a MIDI data dump from an external sequencer (☞p.131).
When "MIDI Clock" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a) is Internal,
selecting a cue list in this page will cause a Song Select
message (corresponding to the cue list number) and
Song Position Pointer message to be transmitted. When
"MIDI Clock" is External or Ext-USB, a Song Select
message from the speciﬁed source will switch cue lists.
Indicates the track that you wish to play manually from the
keyboard along with the playback. While a cue list is play-
ing, you can play along using the track settings and musical
data of the song selected by the current "Step" (2.1–1c). The
track you select here will also follow the track settings and
musical data of the currently playing song. If you wish to
continue using the same program to play along from the
keyboard with consecutive songs, specify the same program
for this track in the songs of each Step.
Selected Track Information
This area shows the program bank number, program num-
ber, and name of the track selected in "Track Select."
Speciﬁes the tempo at which the song in the cue list will be
played (☞"1.1–1a: Tempo").
Auto: Playback will use the tempo speciﬁed by the currently
playing song. During playback, the " (Tempo)" setting can-
not be modiﬁed.
Manu (Manual): Tempo speciﬁed in the song will be
ignored, and playback will use the tempo speciﬁed above
for " (Tempo)."
2.1–1b: Step, Cue Edit-Song, Rep (Cue Edit-Repeat),
FX (Cue Edit-Load FX)
Here you can create and edit a Cue List. When creating a
new cue list, the cue list will show a default cue list of two
"Steps," consisting of "Step" 01 (S000: NEW SONG) and
"Step" 02 (End).
To create or edit a cue list, press the [F7] ("EDIT") key. If you
now select a song for "Step" 01, that song will play once. If
you set "Rep (Repeat)" to 02, that song will play twice.
Press [F7] ("EDIT"), and with "Step" 01 selected, press the
[F4] ("Insert") key to insert a step.
For example with "Song" S001 selected for "Step" 01, set
"Rep" to 02, select "Song" S002 for "Step" 02 and set "Rep"
to 02. When you press the [START/STOP] key, song 1 (S001)
will be played twice, and then song 2 will be played twice.
In this way, arrange the desired songs in the cue list and
specify the number of times that each will be played.
This shows the step number and its beginning measure.
When playback is stopped, the step currently selected by
"Step" (2.1–1c) will be a black triangle. When you use the
[START/STOP] key to begin playback, it will begin from this
step. While a cue list is playing, the playing step will be a
"M**** (Measure)" shows the beginning measure of each
step. It cannot be edited.
This selects the song for the step. It cannot be selected dur-
You can also select whether playback will end with the last
step in the cue list, or whether playback will return to "Step"
01 and continue endlessly.
End: Playback will end.
Continue to Step01: Playback will return to "Step" 01, and
the cue list will continue playing endlessly. To stop, press the
Rep (Cue Edit-Repeat)
Speciﬁes the number of times that the song of this step will
FS: A foot switch connected to the rear panel can be used to
specify the point at which the song will stop repeating.
When you press the foot switch, that repetition of the song
will ﬁnish playing, and then playback will continue to the
next step. Set "Foot Switch Assign" (GLOBAL 6.1–1a) to Cue
FX (Cue Edit-Load FX)
Speciﬁes whether the effect settings will also change simul-
taneously when the playback advances to the song of the
On (checked): The effect settings will change to those of the
newly selected song.
Off (unchecked): The effect settings will not change.
[S000...S199: name, End, Continue to Step01]
Depending on the effect settings, a certain amount of
time may be required to switch effects. In this case,
playback will not be smoothly connected from song to
If you want to transition smoothly from song to song,
check "FX" in "Step" 01. For the remaining steps, do
not check "FX" With these settings, the effects will be
set before playback begins, so there will be no time lag
to interrupt the smooth transition between songs.
Although it is not possible to change the effect types in
the middle of a cue list, you can use the dynamic modu-
lation function or MIDI control changes (effect control)
to apply reverb more deeply to certain songs, or raise
the LFO speed for other songs, etc. When using a cue
list to construct a song, we recommend this method.
When you execute the "Convert to Song" (2.1–1e) page
menu command, the effect settings of the "Step" 01
song will be speciﬁed at the beginning of the song that
is created by the conversion.
Even when "FX" is not checked, there may be a time
lag in the transition from one song to the next, depend-
ing on the musical data in the song. There may also be
cases in which the musical data at the transition
between songs does not play at the correct timing. To
ﬁx this, you can edit the musical data of the song, or
convert the cue list to a single song. If you use "Convert
to Song" (2.1–1e) to convert the cue list to a song, there
will be no time lag at the transition, and the musical
data will play at the correct timing.
