MIDI parameters

Overview

Here you can make MIDI-related settings for the R3.
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and is a world-wide standard
for exchanging various types of musical data between electronic musical instru-
ments 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 R3 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 operate the assigned knobs [1]
to transmit these control changes to control an external MIDI device.
You can synchronize the R3's arpeggiator, LFO rate, or the delay time of the delay
effect to the MIDI Clock of an external MIDI sequencer.

When you wish to use the R3's keyboard, controllers, and arpeggiator etc. to play an
external MIDI tone generator, use a MIDI cable to connect the R3's MIDI OUT con-
nector to the MIDI IN connector of the external MIDI tone generator.

You can use the MIDI THRU connector to simultaneously control multiple MIDI
devices. (This type of connection should be used to connect no more than three
devices. If you wish to connect a larger number of MIDI devices, we recommend
that you use a MIDI patch bay (or MIDI thru-box) as shown in the second diagram
below.)
