Empty measure at the beginning of the Stan-
dard MIDI File
When saving a Song as a Standard MIDI File, an empty measure
is automatically inserted to the beginning of the Song. This mea-
sure contains various Song initialization parameters.
Play/Mute status saved with the Song
When saving a Song, the Play/Mute status is saved with the
Song. This status is preserved also when playing back the same
Song in Song Play mode.
Master Transpose saved with the Song
When saving a Song, the Master Transpose value is saved with
the Song. Since this value is saved as System Exclusive data, it is
preserved also when playing back the Song in Song Play mode.
Hint: Since the Master Transpose is a global parameter, loading a
Song with a non-standard transposition may result in unwanted
transposing when loading other Songs that do not contain their
own transposition data. To transpose a Song it is advisable to use
the Transpose function in the Edit section of the Sequencer mode
(see "Song Edit: Transpose" on page 195).
You may also lock the Master Transpose, to avoid unwanted trans-
position. See "General Controls: Lock" on page 249 of the Global
As a general rule, you should use the Master Transpose (TRANS-
POSE buttons on the control panel) when you need to transpose
Keyboard tracks together with the Song. You should use the Edit
mode Transpose function (see "Song Edit: Transpose" on page 195)
when only the Song has to be transposed.
Note: The Master Transpose value is always shown on the page
