5.1–2b: RPPR Setup
Keyboard & Assigned drawing
This shows the selected key, and the keys to which a pattern
has been assigned by the RPPR function. (Assignments are
not possible for the keys displayed in gray.)
KEY (Key Select)
Indicates the key that you wish to edit. The following
parameters will apply to the key that you select here.
The key can also be selected by holding down the [ENTER]
key and playing a note on the keyboard.
On (checked): When you play the key speciﬁed by "KEY,"
the pattern selected in "Pat (Pattern Bank)," "Pattern Select"
will be triggered.
Off (unchecked): That key will sound the currently selected
track at the corresponding pitch, just as in normal Sequencer
Pattern (Pattern Bank)
Indicates the RPPR pattern for the key selected in "KEY." If
the selected user pattern contains no musical data, there will
be no sound when you press that key.
Indicates the track that will be used for the RPPR pattern
selected for the "KEY." When you play the key, the pattern
will be played according to the settings of the track you
select here. Track settings are made in 1.1: Play/REC–4.4:
MIDI Filter 4. When you record in real-time with the RPPN
function turned on, the data will be recorded on the track
you select here. (☞OG p.76)
Speciﬁes how the pattern of the speciﬁed "KEY" will be
Once: When you press the key, the pattern will playback
only once to the end.
Manual: The pattern will continue repeating as long as you
continue holding the key, and will stop when you release the
Endless: The pattern will continue repeating even after you
release the key. To stop the pattern playback, press any note
below C2, or press the same key once again.
Adjust the playback pitch of the pattern for the speciﬁed
"KEY" in semitone steps over a range of ±1 octave. With a
setting of 0, the pattern will be played at its original pitch.
[Once, Manual, Endless]
Same key, or C2
Speciﬁes how the pattern playback will be synchronized
when you press the speciﬁed "KEY."
Off: The pattern will begin playing at the moment you press
Beat: The pattern will synchronize to the beats of the pattern
that was started by the ﬁrst key (i.e., the ﬁrst note-on that
occurs from a condition where no notes of the keyboard are
pressed). This setting is suitable when you wish to play
phrase patterns in unison.
Measure: The pattern will synchronize to the measures of
the pattern that was started by the ﬁrst key. This setting is
suitable for rhythm, bass or drum patterns.
SEQ: The pattern will synchronize to the measures of the
Key 1 on
Key 2 on
Patterns 1 and 2 are set to
Mode=Manual, and have
identical Sync settings
• When Beat or Measure are selected, pattern playback
will begin when you press the first key. The second and
subsequent patterns that are triggered from the
keyboard will synchronize to the pattern that was
started by the first key; with a setting of Beat they will
synchronize in steps of a beat, and with a setting of
Measure they will synchronize in steps of a measure.
• When SEQ is selected, the pattern will playback in
synchronization with the measures of the sequencer
song. The pattern will synchronize with the currently-
playing song, so you must start the song before you play
notes on the keyboard.
• Beat, Measure, and SEQ will cause the pattern to start
immediately if you play the key within a thirty-second
note of the timing of the respective beat or measure, but
if you play the key later than this, the start of the pattern
will be delayed by a beat.
Stopping playback of a RPPR pattern
By pressing C2 or any lower note, all the patterns being
played by RPPR will stop.
The patterns of keys whose "Sync" setting is Off will stop
immediately, but the playback of other keys will stop at the
beginning of the next beat or measure. Pattern playback of
keys whose "Sync" setting is other than Off can be stopped
immediately by rapidly pressing C2 or any lower note twice
