RK-100S parameter guide
Using the RK-100S with other MIDI
This is where you can adjust MIDI-related settings for the RK-100S. 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.
The RK-100S lets you assign control change numbers to the major parameters that
affect the sound, and control these parameters from an external MIDI sequencer
while you play the tone generator. You can also use the assigned ribon controllers
or buttons to transmit these control changes to control an external MIDI device.
You can synchronize the RK-100S's arpeggiator, LFO rate, or the delay time of
the delay effect to the MIDI Clock of an external MIDI sequencer.
