About the Edit Buffer
About the memory in Program, Com-
bination, and Multi modes
When you select a program, combination, or multi
set in PROG 0: Play, COMBI 0: Play, and MULTI 0:
Play, the data of the selected program, combina-
tion, or multi set is called into the X50's edit buffer.
When you edit the parameters in pages such as 0:
Play, your editing will modify the data in the edit
If you wish to save this modiﬁed data into internal
memory, you must perform the Write operation.
When you perform the Write operation, the data
in the edit buffer is written to the speciﬁed pro-
gram number, combination number or Multi set
number of the speciﬁed bank.
If you select another program, combination or
Multi set number without writing, the data of the
newly selected program, combination or multi set
number will be called into the edit buffer, and
your changes will be lost.
When you press the [COMPARE] button in these
modes, the data in memory (i.e., the written con-
tent) is temporarily called into the edit buffer. This
lets you compare the settings being edited with
the settings prior to editing.
When you write, the program
or combination settings will
be saved in internal memory.

Editing applies to the data in the edit
buffer. Programs or combinations will play
according to the data in the edit buffer.
When you select a program or
combination, its data is called
from internal memory into the
Bank A 0...127
Memory in Global mode
When the power is turned on, the Global mode
data is called from internal memory into the Glo-
bal mode memory area. Then when you modify
the parameters in Global mode, the data in the
memory area will be modiﬁed. If you wish to save
this modiﬁed data in the internal memory, you
must ﬁrst Write (save) it.
When you write, the data in the memory area will
be written into the global settings, drum kits, and
arpeggio patterns of internal memory.
If you turn off the power without writing, the
modiﬁed data in the memory area will be lost.
Editing will affect the data that has been
called into the memory area.
When you write, the
various Global mode
settings will be saved
in internal memory.
When the power is turned
on, the settings are called
into the memory area.
