TRANSMITTING PARAMETER SETTINGS VIA MIDI (BULK DUMP)
You can back up data stored in the DM1000, such as libraries and Scenes, to an external MIDI device by using MIDI Bulk
Dump. In this way, you can later restore previous DM1000 settings by transmitting this MIDI data back to the DM1000.
1 Press the DISPLAY ACCESS [SETUP] button repeatedly until the Setup | MIDI/Host page appears, then specify
ports for transmission and reception of MIDI messages.
2 Make connections using the ports selected in Step 1 so that the DM1000 can transmit and receive MIDI messages
to and from the external device.
3 Press the DISPLAY ACCESS [MIDI] button, then press the [F4] button.
Note: Some of the data transmitted from the DM1000 to the sequence software may occasionally drop out during Bulk
Dump transmission. To avoid this, we recommend that you use the included Studio Manager software to store DM1000
data to an external device.
The MIDI | Bulk page appears.
The page includes the following parameters:
q CATEGORY section
This section enables you to select data for transmission and reception.
Move the cursor to this button, then press [ENTER] to transmit messages from the DM1000 that request a second DM1000
(connected to the first DM1000) to transmit the data specified in the CATEGORY section. This button is used primarily when
two DM1000s are connected in cascade.
Move the cursor to this button, then press [ENTER] to transmit data specified in the CATEGORY section to an external MIDI
This parameter specifies the interval between data packets during bulk transmission in 50 millisecond steps. If the external
device drops part of the bulk data, increase this parameter value.
