◆ Examples of Step Recording
The explanations here apply to steps #6 - #7 of the
Basic Procedure on page 183, page 184.
This section explains how to step-record notes, using
three speciﬁc examples.
1 Set the parameters as illustrated below.
Here, we’ll set the Step Time to (480) so that
quarter notes will be entered, and set the GateTime
to 100% to have the notes play in legato.
2 Play the keys C, D, E, F, G, A, B and C in order.
Each time you press a key and release it, the
pointer moves forward by one step and the played
note is recorded.
3Move the pointer to the top (beginning) of the
song and press the [F] button to hear the note
data you just recorded in steps #1 and 2.
The TIE function is not available for non-note events.
