6-1. MIDI DATA DUMP
"Data dump" is a function that transmits
program or global data in the form of MIDI
exclusive data, so that it can be saved on a
connected MIDI data filer or computer.
This can also be used to transmit data to
another R3 unit.
Do not touch the knobs or buttons of
the R3 while data is being transmitted
or received. Also, never turn the power
off during this operation.
Some USB-MIDI interface devices may
not be able to transmit/receive the
R3's MIDI exclusive messages.
Connect the R3's MIDI OUT connector
to the MIDI IN connector of a device that
is able to receive a MIDI data dump, and
set both devices to the same MIDI chan-
Hold down the [SHIFT] button and

The  button will blink. The main dis-
play will show the type of data dump
that will be transmitted.
Use the [PAGE] dial to select the type
of data dump that will be transmitted.
Data for the currently selected program
will be transmitted (1. Voice – 39. Lvl/
Pan page parameters, front panel but-
ton and knob settings.)
Data for all programs will be transmitted.
Global data will be transmitted (40. Glo-
bal-A – 46. Pedal/Sw page parameters,
foot pedal calibration setting, and
formant motion data.)
All programs and global data will be
Press the blinking  button.
The data dump will be executed, and
then the R3 will return to the Play mode.
For more about the contents of pro-
gram data and global data, refer to the
explanations of what is saved in the
sections "Saving a program" and
"Saving Global and MIDI settings" in
"Saving (Writing)" (☞p.74).

Use the following procedure when you
want to load previously-saved data from
a connected MIDI data filer or computer
back into the R3, or to receive data from
another R3 unit.
Connect the R3's MIDI IN connector to
the MIDI OUT connector of the device
that will transmit the MIDI dump data.
Set the MIDI channel of the transmitting
device to match the R3's MIDI channel.
If you previously transmitted data to an
external MIDI device and want to re-
ceive it into the R3, be sure to set the
R3's MIDI channel to the same channel
setting as when the data was originally
