5.1–2: RPPR Setup
Here you can make settings for the RPPR (Real-time Pattern
Play/Recording) function. RPPR lets you assign a pattern
from a song to each key, and then playback patterns simply
by pressing individual notes on the keyboard. The results
can also be recorded.
For each song, you can assign either a preset pattern or a
user pattern to each of the seventy two keys in the range
C#2–C8. For each key, you can specify the pattern, track
number, and how the pattern will be played.
The arpeggiator is not operated by patterns played
back by RPPR. When RPPR is on, keys for which no
pattern is assigned will sound the track selected by
"Track Select." At this time, the arpeggiator will operate
if either arpeggiator A or B is selected for that track and
turned on. RPPR will not be triggered by notes gener-
ated by the arpeggiator.
When Local Control is OFF ("Local Control On" GLO-
BAL 2.1–1a), the keyboard will not trigger RPPR pat-
tern playback. Notes received at MIDI IN on the
channel of the track currently selected by "Track Select"
will trigger patterns. If you have recorded only the trig-
ger notes on an external sequencer and wish to play-
back the external sequencer to trigger RPPR patterns on
this instrument, set Local Control OFF.
If you want the note data generated by RPPR to be
recorded on the external sequencer, set Local Control
ON, and turn off the echo back function of the external
In the RPPR Setup page, RPPR is turned on automati-
cally. This will be the same result as when the RPPR
check box (1.1–1c) in each page is checked.

the selected user pattern contains no musical data, there will
be no sound when you press that key.
Indicates the track that will be used for the RPPR pattern
selected for the "KEY." When you play the key, the pattern
will be played according to the settings of the track you

pressed). This setting is suitable when you wish to play
phrase patterns in unison.
