3. In Meter, set the time signature.
This will show the time signature that has already been set
for the measure.
If you change the time signature setting, the time signature
data of the measures you record will change, and all tracks
will change to the time signature you speciﬁed.
4. In Step Time, specify the length (in terms of a note
value) of the basic interval at which you will input
From the popup menu at the left, select the note length in a
range of (whole note) through
If you want the selected note value to be a dotted note or a
triplet, use the popup menu at the right to select a dot
". (Dot)" or triplet "3 (Triplet)." To use the unmodiﬁed
value of the selected note, choose "– (Normal)."
The following table shows the number of clocks represented
by each Step Time selection.
5. In Note Duration, specify the length that the note will
actually be held, relative to the Step Time.
In general, 100% will be tenuto, 85% will be normal, and
50% will be staccato.
6. Use Note Velocity to specify the velocity value (key-
board playing strength) of the note data.
With the PAUSE switch pressed, you can hold down the
ENTER switch and play a note on the keyboard to specify
the velocity value. If you set Note Velocity to Key, the actual
velocity at which you played the key will be input.
7. Input the note events described below by playing notes
on the keyboard or by pressing the buttons in the lower
part of the dialog box.
• Inputting notes
When you press a key on the keyboard, that note number
will be input as a note of the length speciﬁed in step 4.
When you press a chord on the keyboard, those note
numbers will be input as chords of the length speciﬁed in
step 4. Since each of the note numbers you press before
releasing all of the keys will be input at the same location,
the notes will be input as a chord even if they are actually
played at different times.
Each time you press and release the keyboard, the location
will advance by the length speciﬁed in step 4.
• Inputting rests
Press the Rest button to input a rest of the length speciﬁed
in step 4.
• Inputting a tie
If you press the Tie button without pressing the keyboard,
the previously-input note will be tied, and lengthened by
the amount speciﬁed in step 4.
If you press the Tie button while holding down a note, the
note you are playing will be tied, and lengthened by the
amount speciﬁed in step 4.
You can even input notes as shown in the following
Step Time =
Press E and C
• Deleting a note or rest
To delete a note or rest, press the StepBack button. The
location will move backward by the amount speciﬁed in
step 4, and the data in that interval will be deleted.
• Auditioning the next note before input
If you wish to make sure of the next note before you actually
input it, press the PAUSE switch (the LED will light). Now
when you press a key, you will hear sound but the note will
not be input. Press the PAUSE switch once again (the LED
will go dark) to cancel the pause mode and resume input.
8. When you are ﬁnished with step recording, press the
If you press the COMPARE switch, you will return to the
condition of before you began step recording.
Here, you can edit individual events of MIDI data that were
1. Use Track Select to select the track that you wish to edit,
and use From Measure (Seq 6–1c) ﬁeld to specify the
measure at which you wish to begin editing.
If you selected Track 01–16 in Event Edit, selecting this
command will open the Set Event Filters dialog box.
If you selected Master Track in Track Select, this dialog box
will not appear.
In the Set Event Filters dialog box you can select the types
of events (musical data) that will appear and can be edited
in the event edit window.
