◆ About the recording track
When recording patterns, you’ll need to specify the
track to be recorded — just as is done in Song

speciﬁc phrase assignments, as described below.
• If the preset phrase is assigned to the track...
You cannot record. Even if you specify the track to which
the preset phrase is assigned and try to record, an error
message will appear.
• If the user phrase is assigned to the track...
The data of the user phrase assigned to the speciﬁed track

Recording is donw to an empty user phrase. The newly
created phrase is automatically assigned to the recording
