An overview of Sequencer mode

Sequencer Mode lets you record and play back MIDI data on
sixteen MIDI tracks and one master track (containing tempo
data, etc.), using the internal sound generator or external
sound modules.
The dual arpeggiator, drum track function, RPPR function;
the sophisticated effects, controllers, and the numerous
other functions of the M50 can be used together to give you
a wide range of possibilities for music production or live
performance.
When you turn off the power, the Sequencer mode
settings, the songs you've recorded, the cue list, and the
user pattern data will disappear. If you need to keep
this data, you must save it to an SD card or a data filer
(via MIDI Data Dump) before powering-off.
If you wish to save the programs, track parameters, and
effects, settings etc. selected for a song as a template
song, use the menu command Save Template Song.
When you initially power up the M50, it will not
contain any cue list and song data, so if you wish to
playback a song on the sequencer, you must first load
data from media or receive a MIDI data dump from a
MIDI filer. (See page 253, page 265, and OM page 93)
MIDI sequencer
• The sequencer can record a maximum of 210,000 MIDI
events, up to 128 songs, and as many as 999 measures
per song.
• Up to 20 cue lists can be created.
A cue list is an arrangement of up to 99 songs that will
be played as a chain. You can specify the number of
times that each song will repeat. A cue list can also be
converted into a single song.
• Timing resolution is a maximum of /480.
• There are sixteen tracks for MIDI performance data, and
a master track that controls the time signature and
tempo.
• The arpeggiator can be used during playback or
recording.
• You can perform or record using the Drum Track
function.
• The RPPR (Realtime Pattern Play/Recording) function
can be used during playback or recording.
• A three-band EQ is provided on each MIDI track.
• For each song, you can use five stereo insert effects, two
stereo master effects, and one stereo total effect.
• Sixteen different template songs are built-in, and contain
program and effect settings suitable for various musical
styles. Up to sixteen original templates that you create
can be saved as user template songs.
• A track play loop function lets you loop specified
measures independently for each track.
• Preset patterns ideal for drums are built in. In addition,
you can create up to 100 user patterns for each song.
These patterns can be used as musical data within a
song, or can be played by the drum track or the drum
track and/or RPPR function.
MIDI recording features
• Various methods of recording are supported, including
realtime recording, in which your performance on the

Sequencer mode

keyboard and controllers (including MIDI control
events) is recorded as you play, and step recording, in
which the timing, length, and velocity of each note can
be specified in the display as you input the pitches from
the keyboard.
• The musical data and control events that you recorded
can be edited in various ways (including event editing
and many other edit commands).
• MIDI System Exclusive (SysEx) messages can be
recorded and played back. SysEx messages received
from an external MIDI device or parameter changes
produced by editing track parameters or effect
parameters can be recorded in real-time on any desired
track.
Parameter-related features
• When the Status of a track is set to INT or BTH, an
external sequencer can be used to play the M50 as a
multi-timbral tone generator. When the Status of a track
is set to BTH, EXT, or EX2, the sequencer of M50 can
play external tone generators.
• Tone Adjust parameters let you make temporary
adjustments to the sound of the program used by a
track, while leaving the original program unchanged.
While creating a song, you can use this capability to
make changes in realtime by (for example) softening the
tone of the bass sound or sharpening the attack of the
strings without having to return to Program mode to
edit the program itself.
• M50's AMS (Alternate Modulation) capability lets you
use control changes for realtime control of the
parameters of the programs used in a program. Its MIDI
Sync abilities let you synchronize the LFO speed to
changes in the tempo.
• Dmod (Dynamic Modulation) functionality lets you
control effect parameters in realtime. You can also use
MIDI Sync to synchronize the LFO speed or delay time
to changes in the tempo.
• The MIDI clock master can be set to Internal, External, or
Auto, allowing synchronized performance with an
external MIDI device.
Editing and operation features
• The Auto Song Setup function lets you instantly set up
program or combination settings of Program mode or
Combination mode as a song, so that you can start
recording simply by pressing the SEQUENCER START/
STOP switch. Since performances using the Drum Track
function or Arpeggiator in Program or Combination
mode are seamlessly integrated with song production,
any inspiration or ideas for phrases and songs that occur
to you while playing can be immediately be turned into
a song.
• Program and Combination settings can be copied to a
song.
• Sequencer data such as a song that you create can be
saved in the M50's native format, or transmitted as a
MIDI data dump.
• A song you created can be converted into SMF (Standard
MIDI File) data. SMF songs can also be loaded.
• The Play/Rec/Mute and Solo On/Off buttons let you
instantly play/mute any desired track on the fly.
