MIDI applications

About MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and is
a world-wide standard for exchanging various types of
musical data between electronic musical instruments and
computers. When MIDI cables are used to connect two or
more MIDI devices, performance data can be exchanged
between the devices, even if they were made by different
manufacturers.
Settings when connected to a
MIDI device or computer
Here we will explain the settings you'll make on the M50
when connecting it to another device.
The "Convert Position" setting
The M50's settings Key Transpose, Velocity Curve, and
After Touch Curve (MIDI IN) (Global 0–1a) respectively
allow you to adjust the transposition, velocity sensitivity,
and aftertouch (received only from the internal sequencer or
from MIDI IN) sensitivity.
The aftertouch curve is applied only to data received
from the internal sequencer or from MIDI IN. The After
Touch Curve (MIDI IN) setting does nothing if
Convert Position (Global 1–1a) is Pre-MIDI.
The effect that these settings will have on the internal
sequencer and on the MIDI data that is transmitted and
received will depend on Convert Position (Global 1–1a)
setting.
• If you want to control an external MIDI tone generator
from the M50, set Convert Position to PreMIDI. The
various settings listed above will be reflected in the
MIDI data that is transmitted. These settings will also be
reflected in the data that is recorded on the internal
sequencer.
Incoming MIDI data will be handled with settings equiv-
alent to Key Transpose 0, Velocity Curve 4, and After
Touch Curve 3.
• When controlling the M50's tone generator from an
external MIDI device, select PostMIDI. The above-listed
settings will affect the MIDI data that is received. These
settings will also affect the data that is played back from
the internal sequencer.
Outgoing MIDI data will be handled with settings equiv-
alent to Key Transpose 0, and Velocity Curve 4.
MIDI applications About MIDI
Local Control On settings
If you've connected the M50 to a computer or external MIDI
sequencer and want to use the "echo-back" from that device
to play the M50, turn echo-back on for your external MIDI
sequencer or computer (so that the data it receives at MIDI
IN will be retransmitted from MIDI OUT), and turn off the
M50's local control setting (so that the M50's keyboard
section and sound generator will be internally
disconnected).
When you play the keyboard of the M50, the musical data
will be transmitted to the external MIDI sequencer or
computer, and then echoed back to play the M50's tone
generator. In other words, by turning Local Control OFF,
you can prevent notes from being sounded in duplicate, as
would otherwise occur if a note were sounded by the M50's
own keyboard and again by the data that was echoed-back.
If the arpeggiator function is on, playing the M50's
keyboard will not cause the arpeggiator to operate, and only
the musical data produced by playing the keyboard will be
transmitted. The arpeggiator will operate only in response
to the notes that are echoed-back and received at MIDI IN.
In this way, turning off Local Control prevents the
arpeggiator from operating in duplicate.
Use this setting when you wish to record on the external
MIDI sequencer or computer only the notes that trigger the
arpeggiator, and to use the echoed-back notes to operate the
arpeggiator while monitoring your recording or during
playback.
Note: If you want the note data produced by the arpeggiator
to be recorded on the external sequencer/computer, set
Local Control on, and turn off the Echo Back setting of the
external sequencer/computer.
To turn off Local Control, press the Local Control On
(Global 1–1a) check box to uncheck it.
When using the M50 by itself, leave Local Control turned
on. (If this is off when the M50 is used by itself, playing the
keyboard will not produce sound.)
