If you press the [F] button in step #6 of the Basic
Procedure on page 183, the following display appears
and you can input the speciﬁed events one by one.
● Entering the Note Event
When the event to be entered is set to “note” , you
can input the note events one by one.
• Beat Graph
This is the display in which notes are “placed” during step
recording.When the meter is 4/4, the display is divided
into four beats (one measure). Each diamond-shaped
marker in the display represents one 32nd beat (each 1/4
note division is divided into eight 32nd beats).
For example, if the following rhythmic pattern
“” is entered in 4/4 time, a display like the one
shown below will appear.
Determines the data-entry position.
The triangular pointer above the beat graph indicates the
To move the pointer right or left, use the [INC/YES] and
[DEC/NO] buttons or the data dial.
When the event to be entered is set to “note” , this value
speciﬁes the velocity with which the note will be entered.
The set value (1 ~ 127) corresponds to the MIDI
velocity value entered.
When one of the random settings is selected, a random
velocity value will be entered.
The “size” of the current recording step time for the next
note to be entered. This determines to what position the
pointer will advance after a note has been entered.
Sets the gate time to produce slurs, staccato notes, etc.
“Gate time” refers to the actual length of time the note
sounds. For the same 1/4 note, for example, a long gate
time will produce a slur while a short gate time will
produce a staccato effect.
Gate time is indicated as a percent value of the step time.
A setting of 50% produces a staccato sound, values
between about 80% and 90% produce normal note length,
and a value of 99% will produce a slur.
● [F3] REST
Press [F3] to enter a rest as long as the speciﬁed step time.
The point will move ahead to the next data-entry position.
Rests do not appear on the display.
nThere is no actual data representing rests in the
MIDI sequencer. When a “rest” is entered the
pointer simply moves ahead to the next data-entry
position, effectively leaving a rest.
● [F4] TIE
When the [F4] button is pressed to enter a tie, the
preceding note is lengthened to the full step time. For
example, in the following phrase, note is entered with
1/4 note step time. If the step time is then changed to an
8th note and [F4] is pressed, note is entered.
