generator will be internally disconnected). When you play
the keyboard of the TRITON Le, the musical data will be
transmitted to the external MIDI sequencer or computer,
and then echoed back to play the TRITON Le tone genera-
tor. In other words, by turning Local Control OFF, you can
prevent notes from being sounded in duplicate, as would
otherwise occur if a note were sounded by the TRITON Le's
own keyboard and again by the data that was echoed-back.
If the arpeggiator function is on, playing the TRITON Le's
keyboard will not cause the arpeggiator to operate, and only
the musical data produced by playing the keyboard will be
transmitted. The arpeggiator will operate only in response
to the notes that are echoed-back and received at MIDI IN.
In this way, turning off Local Control prevents the arpeggia-
tor from operating in duplicate.
Use this setting when you wish to record on the external
MIDI sequencer or computer only the notes that trigger the
arpeggiator, and to use the echoed-back notes to operate the
arpeggiator while monitoring your recording or during
playback.
If you want the note data produced by the arpeggiator
to be recorded on the external sequencer/computer, set
Local Control on, and turn off the Echo Back setting of
the external sequencer/computer.
To turn off Local Control, the "Local Control On" (GLOBAL
2.1–1a) check box to uncheck it ( p.128).
When using the TRITON Le by itself, leave Local Control
turned on. (If this is off when this instrument is used by
itself, playing the keyboard will not produce sound.)
Messages transmitted and received

[...] indicates hexadecimal notation
MIDI channels
MIDI messages can be exchanged when the transmitting
and receiving devices are set to the same MIDI channel.
MIDI uses sixteen channels, numbered 1–16. The way in
which channels are handled will differ depending on the
mode.
Program mode, Sampling mode (if the EXB-SMPL option (sold
separately) is installed)
• Transmission/reception is performed on the global
MIDI channel*.
* The global MIDI channel is the basic channel that this
instrument uses for MIDI transmission/reception, and
is set by "MIDI Channel" (GLOBAL 2.1–1a).
Combination mode
• The global MIDI channel is used to transmit/receive
messages for selecting a combination and turning effects
on/off, and to transmit/receive exclusive data.
• The MIDI channel specified for each timbre (in COMBI
3.1–1a) is used to transmit/receive MIDI data for each
timbre.
• The MIDI channel specified for the insert effect and
master effects (in MIDI channel "Control Ch (control
Channel)" (COMBI 7.1–2b, 7.2–1a, 7.2–1c)) is used to
control dynamic modulation, and to control the pan and
send 1/2 after the sound has passed through the insert
effects.
• When you operate the keyboard or controllers of the
TRITON Le, messages will be transmitted on the global
232
MIDI channel, and will also be transmitted on the MIDI
channel of any timbre whose "Status" (COMBI 3.1–1a) is
set to EXT or EX2.
• Channel messages will be received if they match the
MIDI channel of a timbre whose "Status" is set to INT
( p.36 "Status" and "MIDI Channel").
Sequencer mode
• The global MIDI channel is used to transmit/receive
exclusive data and for messages that switch effects on/
off.
• MIDI data of each track is transmitted/received on the
MIDI channel specified for each track (In Sequencer
mode, this will be the settings of SEQ 3.1–1(2)a.)
• The MIDI channel specified for the insert effect and
master effects (in SEQ 7.1–3b, 7.2–1a, 7.2–1c) is used to
control dynamic modulation, and to control the pan and
send 1/2 after the sound has passed through the insert
effect.
• When you operate the keyboard or controllers of the
TRITON Le, messages will be transmitted on the MIDI
channel selected by "Track Select" (SEQ 1.1–1c).
However, messages will be transmitted only if the track
selected by "Track Select" has a "Status" of BTH, EXT,
or EX2. (
p.51 "Track Select"–
• When Sequencer is played back, musical data of tracks
whose "Status" is BTH, EXT, or EX2 will be transmitted
on the specified MIDI channels.
• Tracks whose "Status" is INT or BTH will receive
channel messages of the matching MIDI channel ( p.62
"Status" and "MIDI Channel").
Note on/off
Note-on [9n, kk, vv]
Note-off [8n, kk, vv]
(n: channel, kk: note number, vv: velocity)
When you play a note on the TRITON Le's keyboard, it will
transmit note-on/off messages. When the arpeggiator is
running, note-on/off messages will be transmitted by the
arpeggiator. (If Local Control is off, the arpeggiator will not
transmit note-on/off data.
tings")
However, most instruments do not receive or transmit note-
off velocity, and neither does the TRITON Le.
Most devices do not transmit or receive note-off velocity,
and the TRITON Le does not transmit or receive this data
either.
Program Change/Bank Select
Changing the program/bank
Program change [Cn, pp]
(n: channel, pp: program number that allows 128 sounds to
be selected)
• Programs 000–127 in banks A, B, C, and D correspond to
program changes [Cn, 00]–[Cn, 7F].
• Programs 001–128 in banks G and g(d) correspond to
program changes [Cn, 00]–[Cn, 7F].
