Synchronizing the arpeggiator

The note timing of the arpeggiator will differ
depending on the state of the arpeggiator "Key
Sync." check box.
If this is checked, the arpeggiator will immedi-
ately start playing from the beginning from the
first note-on you play after all the keys had been
previously released.
If this is unchecked, the arpeggiator will operate
in synchronization with the internal or external
MIDI clock.
The paragraphs below explain how synchroniza-
tion occurs when the "Key Sync." check box is
unchecked. (However, synchronization with Song
Start and with the MIDI realtime command Start
message are exceptions to this.)
Synchronization between arpeggia-
tors A and B
In Combination and Multi mode, two arpeggia-
tors can operate simultaneously. In this case, if you
start an arpeggiator (whose "Key Sync." is
unchecked) while the other arpeggiator is already
running, the arpeggiator you started will synchro-
nize to the " (Tempo)" based on the timing of the
already-running arpeggiator.
Note: If "Key Sync." is checked, A and B will each
operate on their own timing.
Synchronization with an external
sequencer in Program, Combination,
or Multi modes
When the X50 is the master
If " (Tempo)" is INT, the arpeggiator will operate
based on the timing of the internal MIDI clock.
" (Tempo)" will be INT if GLOBAL 1: MIDI
"MIDI Clock" is Internal. The tempo will also be
INT if the Auto setting is selected and MIDI clock
is not being received from an external device.
When the X50 is the slave
If " (Tempo)" is EXT, the arpeggiator will syn-
chronize to the MIDI clock and Start messages etc.
received from the external MIDI sequencer or sim-
ilar device.
" (Tempo)" will be EXT if GLOBAL 1: MIDI "MIDI
Clock" is Ext-MIDI or Ext-USB. The tempo will also
be EXT if the Auto setting is selected and MIDI
clock is being received from an external device.
Synchronizing the arpeggiator
Synchronization to external MIDI clock
• The arpeggiator will synchronize to the "
(Tempo)" based on the timing of the external
MIDI clock.
Synchronization to the MIDI Start mes-
sage
• When the arpeggiator is on and operating,
receiving a MIDI Start message will cause the
arpeggiator to reset to the beginning of the pat-
tern. (This has no relation to the "Key Sync."
setting.)
