Korg microX Operation Manual: Saving A User Arpeggio

Arpeggiator settings
Dual polyphonic arpeggiator editing
in Combi and Multi modes
Here we will use a combination as an example in
our explanation.
The same procedure applies when editing an
arpeggio pattern in Multi mode.
If you have entered this mode from the Combina-
tion mode, the arpeggio pattern selected by the
combination will be affected by your editing.
1. In Combination mode, select a combination
that uses the arpeggio pattern you wish to edit.
For this example, select a combination to which
arpeggiators A and B is assigned.
2. Press the [ARP ON/OFF] button to turn on the
arpeggiator (the button will light).
Even if the arpeggiator had been turned off
when you moved here, you can use the [ARP
ON/OFF] button to turn it on. However, if
"Arpeggiator Run" A or B are not checked, and
if no timbres have been assigned in "Assign,"
then the arpeggiator will not operate.
3. Access the GLOBAL 5: Arp.Pattern, Setup
4. If you moved here from Combination mode,
use the "Arp (Arpeggio Select)" A and B to
select the arpeggiator that you wish to edit.
If this is A, your editing will apply to the
parameters and user arpeggio pattern of
arpeggiator A.
If this is B, your editing will apply to the
parameters and user arpeggio pattern of
arpeggiator B.
5. Switch between arpeggiators A and B, and edit
their respective user arpeggio patterns.
If you wish to stop one of the arpeggiators,
return to Combination mode, and in COMBI 0:
Play, select the Arp. A or the Arp. B page and
uncheck the "Arpeggiator Run" check box.
6. To modify the name of a user arpeggio pattern,
use the Utility "Rename Arpeggio Pattern"
7. If you wish to save the edited user arpeggio
pattern in internal memory, you must write the
user arpeggio pattern.
In this case, both user arpeggio patterns will be
written simultaneously. If you turn off the power
without writing, the edited contents will be lost.
8. If you wish to save the state of the combination
at the same time, return to Combination mode
and write the combination (☞p.61).
Note: When editing a user arpeggio pattern,
pay attention to the global MIDI channel, the
channel of each track, and the arpeggiator
assignments, and make sure that the
arpeggiator you are hearing is the pattern that
you wish to edit.
Assigning a name
We recommend that you assign a name to the
arpeggio pattern you create.
You can do this by using the "Rename Arpeggio
Pattern" utility. For details on assigning a name,
see p.114.

Saving a user arpeggio

When you're finished editing, you should save the
user arpeggio.
The "Tempo," "Pattern," "Octave," "Resolution,"
"Sort," "Latch," "Key Sync.," and "Keyboard" set-
tings of a user arpeggio pattern are parameters
that are saved together with the program, combi-
nation, or multi set. These parameters are not
saved by the Write operation described here. If
you want to save these parameters, return to the
previous mode and write the data.
Note: You'll need to turn off the memory protect
setting for user arpeggio patterns. In the GLOBAL
0: System, Preference page, uncheck the Memory
Protect "Arp. UsrPat" box. (☞p.88)
1. Press the [UTILITY] button to access the utility
menu, and choose "Write Arpeggio Patterns."
2. To write (save) your settings, press the
[MENU/OK] button.
A dialog box will ask you to confirm that you
want to write the arpeggio patterns.
3. Press the [MENU/OK] button to write your
settings, or press the [EXIT/CANCEL] button if
you decide not to write.
The arpeggio patterns will be written (saved).
