SEQ 6.1: Arp.
Here you can specify how the arpeggiator will operate in
Sequencer mode. These settings can be made for each song.
In Sequencer mode (as in Combination mode), you can run
the two arpeggiators simultaneously. This allows you to
apply different arpeggio patterns to different sounds that
have been split across the keyboard, or use velocity to
switch between two different arpeggio patterns, etc.
In Sequencer mode, the musical data generated by the
arpeggiator during song track or pattern realtime-recording
can be recorded. While you record, you can modify the
arpeggio pattern and parameters, and adjust the REALTIME
ITY] knob etc.
It is not possible to set the tempo of the arpeggiator and
the sequencer independently.
When "MIDI Clock" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a) is Internal, the
arpeggiator can be synchronized to the start timing of the
internal sequencer.
• When you turn on the arpeggiator and press the
[START/STOP] key, the arpeggiator will synchronize to
the timing of the sequencer.
• When you press the [START/STOP] key, the arpeggiator
and sequencer will both stop. If you wish to stop only
the arpeggiator, press the [ARP ON/OFF] key.
When the arpeggiator "Key Sync" is off, you can turn on the
[ARP ON/OFF] key and play the keyboard to start the
arpeggiator running during the pre-count before realtime
recording begins, so that the arpeggiator performance will
be recorded from the beginning of the pattern at the same
time that recording begins. (☞OG p.111)
When "MIDI Clock" is External or Ext-USB, the MIDI
realtime clock messages transmitted from the external
MIDI device connected to MIDI IN connector or USB B
connector can perform the same type of control.
Even in this case, you can start/stop using the [START/
STOP] key of the TR's sequencer.
6.1–1: Set..8
(Setup T01–08)
6.1–2: Set..16
6.1–1(2)a: Arpeggiator Run,
Arpeggiator Run A, B (Run A, B)
When the [ARP ON/OFF] key is on, the arpeggiator(s) that
are checked here will function for the track(s) to which they
are assigned by "Assign." When the arpeggiator is on, A and
B can be turned on/off independently.
Specify the tempo of the arpeggiator. Refer to " (Tempo)"
( ☞ 1.1–1a).
(Setup T09–16)
[040...240, (EXT)]
6.1–1(2)b: Assign
This assigns arpeggiator A or arpeggiator B to each track 1–
8, 9–16. When the [ARP ON/OFF] key is turned on, the
arpeggiator specified for each track will run, subject to the
"Arpeggiator Run" settings and setting here.
Off: The arpeggiator will not operate.
A: Arpeggiator A will operate. Use the Arp. A page to select
the arpeggio pattern and set the parameters.
B: Arpeggiator B will operate. Use the Arp. B page to select
the arpeggio pattern and set the parameters.
For tracks that you wish to realtime-record, select either
arpeggiator A or B. If you specify an arpeggiator for two or
more tracks, the arpeggiator will play each of the tracks you
You can set A and B to two different MIDI channels, and
control one from the keyboard and the other from an exter-
nal MIDI device connected to MIDI IN. You can also use
multi-track recording (MultiREC) to simultaneously record
the note data that is generated from the two arpeggiators.
The arpeggiator cannot be triggered by the notes
played by the sequencer.
If the tracks 1–16 assigned to arpeggiators A and B have
a "Status" (3.1–1(2)a) of INT or BTH, they will be
played by the note data generated by the arpeggiator. If
the "Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2, MIDI note data will
be transmitted on the "MIDI Channel" of each track.
In this case, arpeggiator A or B will be triggered by the
"MIDI Channel" of any track 1–16 to which the corre-
sponding arpeggiator is assigned.
If the ("Local Control On" GLOBAL 2.1–1a) is turned
OFF, the arpeggiator will not be triggered by note data
from the keyboard. It will be triggered by note data
received at MIDI IN. If you wish to record just the trig-
ger notes on an external sequencer and run the TR's
arpeggiator in this way, turn Local Control OFF.
If you want the note data generated by the arpeggiator
to be recorded on the external sequencer, turn Local
Control ON, and turn off the echo back function of the
external sequencer.
You can control the arpeggiator from an external
sequencer, or record arpeggio note data on an external
sequencer. (☞p.243)
Example 1)
On tracks 1 and 2, set "MIDI Channel" (3.1–1(2)a) to 01
and "Status" (3.1–1(2)a) to INT. Assign arpeggiator A to
track 1 and arpeggiator B to track 2, and check "Arpeg-
giator Run A, B" (6.1–1a). In "Track Select" (1.1–1c)
choose Track01.
With the front panel [ARP ON/OFF] key OFF, play the
keyboard and tracks 1 and 2 will sound simultaneously.
When you turn on the front panel [ARP ON/OFF] key
and play the keyboard, arpeggiator A will operate for
track 1 and arpeggiator B will operate for track 2.
