• This unit, either alone or in combination
with an amplifier and headphones or
speakers, may be capable of producing
sound levels that could cause permanent
hearing loss. Do not operate for a long period of
time at a high volume level, or at a level that is
uncomfortable. If you experience any hearing loss
or ringing in the ears, you should immediately
stop using the unit, and consult an audiologist.
• Do not put anything that contains water
(e.g., flower vases) on this unit. Also,
avoid the use of insecticides, perfumes,
alcohol, nail polish, spray cans, etc., near
the unit. Swiftly wipe away any liquid
that spills on the unit using a dry, soft cloth.
• Do not allow any objects (e.g., flammable
material, coins, pins); or liquids of any
kind (water, soft drinks, etc.) to penetrate
the unit.
• The unit should be located so that its location or position does not interfere with its
proper ventilation.
........................................................................
• Always grasp only the plug on the powersupply cord when plugging into, or
unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.
........................................................................
• Immediately turn the power off, remove
the power cord from the outlet, and
request servicing by your retailer, the
nearest Roland Service Center, or an
authorized Roland distributor, as listed on
the “Information” page when:
• The AC adaptor, the power-supply cord, or the
plug has been damaged; or
• If smoke or unusual odor occurs
• Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been
spilled onto the unit; or
• The unit has been exposed to rain (or otherwise
has become wet); or
• The unit does not appear to operate normally or
exhibits a marked change in performance.
........................................................................
• In households with small children, an
adult should provide supervision until the
child is capable of following all the rules
essential for the safe operation of the unit.
........................................................................
• Protect the unit from strong impact.
(Do not drop it!)
........................................................................
• Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord
to share an outlet with an unreasonable
number of other devices. Be especially
careful when using extension cords—the total
power used by all devices you have connected to
the extension cord's outlet must never exceed the
power rating (watts/amperes) for the extension
cord. Excessive loads can cause the insulation on
the cord to heat up and eventually melt through.
........................................................................
• Before using the unit in a foreign country,
consult with your retailer, the nearest
Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland
distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.
........................................................................
........................................................................
• At regular intervals, you should unplug
the power plug and clean it by using a dry
cloth to wipe all dust and other accumulations away from its prongs. Also, disconnect the
power plug from the power outlet whenever the
unit is to remain unused for an extended period of
time. Any accumulation of dust between the
power plug and the power outlet can result in
poor insulation and lead to fire.
........................................................................
• Try to prevent cords and cables from
becoming entangled. Also, all cords and
cables should be placed so they are out of
the reach of children.
........................................................................
• Never climb on top of, nor place heavy
objects on the unit.
........................................................................
• Never handle the power cord or its plugs
with wet hands when plugging into, or
unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.
........................................................................
• Before moving the unit, disconnect the
power plug from the outlet, and pull out
all cords from external devices.
........................................................................
• Before cleaning the unit, turn off the
power and unplug the power cord from
the outlet (p. 18).
........................................................................
• Whenever you suspect the possibility of
lightning in your area, pull the plug on the
power cord out of the outlet.

IMPORTANT NOTES
In addition to the items listed under “IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” and “USING THE UNIT
SAFELY” on pages 2 and 3, please read and observe
the following:
Power Supply
• Do not use this unit on the same power circuit with
any device that will generate line noise (such as an
electric motor or variable lighting system).
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off
the power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions and/or damage to speakers or other
devices.
• Although the LCD and LEDs are switched off when
the POWER switch is switched off, this does not
mean that the unit has been completely disconnected
from the source of power. If you need to turn off the
power completely, first turn off the POWER switch,
then unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
For this reason, the outlet into which you choose to
connect the power cord's plug should be one that is
within easy reach.
Placement
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other
equipment containing large power transformers)
may induce hum. To alleviate the problem, change
the orientation of this unit; or move it farther away
from the source of interference.
• This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of
such receivers.
• Observe the following when using the unit’s floppy
disk drive. For further details, refer to “Before Using
Floppy Disks” (p. 5).
• Do not place the unit near devices that produce a
strong magnetic field (e.g., loudspeakers).
• Install the unit on a solid, level surface.
• Do not move the unit or subject it to vibration
while the drive is operating.
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it
near devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an
enclosed vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or discolor
the unit.
• To avoid possible breakdown, do not use the unit in
a wet area, such as an area exposed to rain or other
moisture.
nated with a mild, non-abrasive detergent.
Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit thoroughly
with a soft, dry cloth.
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of
any kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration
and/or deformation.
Additional Precautions
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the
contents of data that was stored on a floppy disk
once it has been lost. Roland Corporation assumes
no liability concerning such loss of data.
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the
unit’s buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when
using its jacks and connectors. Rough handling can
lead to malfunctions.
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display.
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp
the connector itself—never pull on the cable. This
way you will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the
cable’s internal elements.
• A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit
during normal operation.
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the
unit’s volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer
to use headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about those around you (especially when it is
late at night).
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in
the box (including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to use equivalent
packaging materials.
• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If
using some other make of connection cable, please
note the following precautions.

Before Using Floppy Disks
Handling the Floppy Disk Drive
• Install the unit on a solid, level surface in an area
free from vibration. If the unit must be installed at
an angle, be sure the installation does not exceed the
permissible range.
• Avoid using the unit immediately after it has been
moved to a location with a level of humidity that is
greatly different than its former location. Rapid
changes in the environment can cause condensation
to form inside the drive, which will adversely affect
the operation of the drive and/or damage floppy
disks. When the unit has been moved, allow it to
become accustomed to the new environment (allow
a few hours) before operating it.
• Floppy disks have a “write protect” tab which can
protect the disk from accidental erasure. It is recommended that the tab be kept in the PROTECT position, and moved to the WRITE position only when
you wish to write new data onto the disk.
Rear side of the disk
Write
(can write new data onto disk)
Write Protect Tab
Protect
(prevents writing to disk)
• To insert a disk, push it gently but firmly into the
drive—it will click into place. To remove a disk,
press the EJECT button firmly. Do not use excessive
force to remove a disk which is lodged in the drive.
• The identification label should be firmly affixed to
the disk. Should the label come loose while the disk
is in the drive, it may be difficult to remove the disk.
• Never attempt to remove a floppy disk from the
drive while the drive is operating (the indicator is
brightly lit); damage could result to both the disk
and the drive.
• Store all disks in a safe place to avoid damaging
them, and to protect them from dust, dirt, and other
hazards. By using a dirty or dust-ridden disk, you
risk damaging the disk, as well as causing the disk
drive to malfunction.
• Remove any disk from the drive before powering up
or down.
• To prevent damage to the disk drive’s heads, always
try to hold the floppy disk in a level position (not
tilted in any direction) while inserting it into the
drive. Push it in firmly, but gently. Never use excessive force.
• To avoid the risk of malfunction and/or damage,
insert only floppy disks into the disk drive. Never
insert any other type of disk. Avoid getting paper
clips, coins, or any other foreign objects inside the
drive.
• Disks containing performance data for this unit
should always be locked (have their write protect
tab slid to the “Protect” position) before you insert
them into the drive on some other unit (except the
PR-300, or a product in the HP-G, MT, KR, or Atelier
families), or into a computer’s drive. Otherwise (if
the write protect tab remains in the “Write” position), when you perform any disk operations using
the other device’s disk drive (such as checking the
contents of the disk, or loading data), you risk rendering the disk unreadable by this unit’s disk drive.
Handling Floppy Disks
• Floppy disks contain a plastic disk with a thin coating of magnetic storage medium. Microscopic precision is required to enable storage of large amounts
of data on such a small surface area. To preserve
their integrity, please observe the following when
handling floppy disks:
• Never touch the magnetic medium inside the
disk.
• Do not use or store floppy disks in dirty or dusty
areas.
• Do not subject floppy disks to temperature
extremes (e.g., direct sunlight in an enclosed vehicle). Recommended temperature range: 10 to 50°
C (50 to 122° F).
• Do not expose floppy disks to strong magnetic
fields, such as those generated by loudspeakers.

Main Features of the MT 300s
Thank you, and congratulations on your choice of the Roland MT 300s Music Player.
You can use the MT 300s not only on its own; by connecting a digital piano, you’ll
have even more ways to play sounds.
What You Can Do with the MT 300s as a Stand-Alone Machine
Listen to music files
Using the built-in disk drive, you can listen to songs in a wide variety of musical genres formatted as music files (p.25).
Practice instruments
The MT 300s features a variety of convenient functions for changing song tempos
(p.33), practicing each hand’s part (p.38), playing back the same section of a song
repeatedly (p.31), and other functions useful for playing songs.
Perform accompanied by orchestral backing from music files
You can mute specific parts contained in music files and play those parts yourself
(p.38), or listen only to specific selected parts (p.60).
Enjoy karaoke
The MT 300s features a microphone input jack. You can also add echo, and change the
key of the accompaniment (p.54).
NOTE
Your original performances using acoustic instruments cannot be recorded with the MT 300s.
What you can do with a digital piano connected:
Record your own performances
Just as with a regular tape recorder, you can record performances onto the five
Track/TRACK buttons (p.41).
Create authentic ensemble pieces
With so many different recording and performance functions, creating your own
songs is a snap (p.61, 78).
Save the songs you create to floppy disks, and then make and
copy original song collections.
Using the built-in disk drive, you can save recorded songs (p.49).
Perform with various instrument sounds played from a connected
keyboard.
The MT 300s includes an internal GS sound generator with a selection of over 300
sounds to choose from (p.55, 56).

Tuning the MT 300s to Electronic Keyboards
When using the MT 300s with a digital piano or other instrument connected, you first
have to tune the instruments’ standard pitches to each other.
If, while playing ensemble pieces with other instruments, the pitches do not match,
you will not be able to get pleasant sounding performances. Matching these standard
pitches is called “tuning.”
TERMS
What is the standard pitch?
In general, the pitch at Middle A on the piano is what is referred to as the standard pitch.

How to Save Songs
Recorded songs are deleted when the MT 300s is turned off. Furthermore, you cannot
select a different song until you delete the recorded performance. Thus, you will want
to save your important works to a floppy disk.
You can create your own original music files when you save recorded performances to floppy
disks. Be sure to check out the many ways you can use floppy disks.
MEMO
Before Using Floppy Disks (Format)
NOTE
Formatting erases all the data stored on the floppy disk. When formatting a previously used
floppy disk for reuse, make sure that it is all right to format the disk.
NOTE
Before using the disk drive for the first time, be sure to read the related precautions on p.5.
Mastering the Basics
Before a floppy disk can ever be used for saving songs with the MT 300s, you must
“format” the disk.
The deleting of data on a floppy disk and preparing the disk for the equipment it is to
be used with is known as “formatting.” Floppy disks cannot be used on the MT 300s
without changing the disk’s format to that of the MT 300s.

NOTE
Please refer to “If You See This Screen Displayed” (p.106) if the number beginning with the
letter “E,” such as “E.00,” appears on the screen.
Saving Songs to Floppy Disks
Storing data, including recorded performances, onto floppy disks is called “saving.”
NOTE
Before using the disk drive for the first time, be sure to read the related precautions on p.5.
NOTE
When using a brand new floppy disk on the MT 300s, format the disk first. Please refer to
“Before Using Floppy Disks (Format)” (p.49).
NOTE
You may not be able to save some songs contained in certain commercially available music files.
Improper handling of floppy disks may result in cracked disks, unplayable data, or other damage.
When saving songs to floppy disks, making two copies of each disk is recommended. Keeping an
additional copy of the same song on a separate floppy disk can provide great peace of mind.

It is a good idea to make a habit of sliding the protect tab to the “Protect” position
when a save is completed.
Putting the protect tab in the “Protect” position, protects against accidental erasure of
songs. With the protect tab of disks with songs saved on them in the “Write” position,
inserting the disks into the disk drive of a computer or other device may make the
songs on the disk unplayable on the MT 300s (for more detailed information, please

Listening to Songs after Changing Instrument Sounds or
Making Other Changes
The songs on the Music File Disk and on commercially available music files are divided into 16 separate parts, with each part containing different instrument sounds or
tones.
On the MT 300s, you can switch each part’s tones and change the volume levels and
other settings of the tones on each part.
About a Song’s Basic Settings
Tones, volume levels, basic tempos, and other settings for each part, as well as the settings determined at the beginning of each song are called “basic settings.” On the MT
300s, you can listen to songs after temporarily making changes to the parameters of a
song’s basic settings—the state of each part’s tone, volume, panpot, reverb, and chorus—and change the basic settings and basic tempo of the song itself.

The MT 300s’s Recording Functions
The MT 300s allow you to create ensemble works with ease.
A Variety of Ways to Record
There are four ways to record with the MT 300s.
• Replace Recording
New material is recorded as previously recorded material is erased (p.67).
• Mix Recording
Newly recorded material layered on previously recorded material (p.68).
• Loop Recording
A specified segment of the song is repeated, and the different sounds recorded with
each pass are layered on one another (p.69).
• Patch-In Recording
While listening to a recorded performance, only a specified segment of the performance is rerecorded (p.70).
Although the MT 300s is normally set to “replace” recording, set each of the four
recording modes according to your particular situation.

Recording Ensemble Works
Here we introduce the basic procedure for creating ensemble works .
This is a fundamental process. Combining this process with the MT 300s’s functions,
try the composing techniques that appeal to you.
How to Create Ensemble Works
To create an ensemble piece, first you must determine the imagery of the song, deciding which part will play what tone an so on. Then, after carrying out the sequence of
setting rhythm patterns and bass, chord , and melody parts for each part’s tone, you
go on to record.
Determining the Basic Tempo and Beat for the Song
Let’s set a song’s basic tempo and beat.
1.
2.
Press the [Song] button.
Use the [Dial] ; “0 : New Song” appears in the upper part of the display screen.
New Songs are assigned the number “0” and then recorded.

Recording Functions
Recording Drum Parts
First, let’s record the rhythm parts.
It’s easy to make your own rhythm part when you use the MT 300s’s internal rhythm Patterns.
There’s no need to record each instrument’s part one at a time, making it very convenient.
Please refer to “Creating Rhythm Parts Easily “ (p.77) and “Copying Rhythm Patterns” (p.82).
When you do want to record rhythm tracks one at a time, Loop Recording is a convenient way
to do this.

percussion parts, and so on.
NOTE
When you select a part that already has material recorded on it and then proceed with recording, then the previously recorded material is replaced by the newly-recorded material from the
point where the new recording starts to where it stops.
When you want to listen to a part of the recorded performance, use rewind and fast forward to

please refer to “How to Save songs” (p.49).
NOTE
Poor handling of floppy disks may result in cracked disks, unplayable data, or other damage.
When saving songs to floppy disks, making two copies of each disk is recommended. Keeping
an additional copy of the same song on a separate floppy disk can provide great peace of mind.
Editing Songs
You can edit recorded songs in many ways, including deleting measures, copying
measures to other locations in a song, and more. Please refer to “Chapter 4 Editing
Functions” (p.78).

Correcting Unevenness in the Rhythm (Quantize)
You can correct any differences in timing in a performance and have everything set to
the timing you specify. This is called “quantizing.”
For example, let’s say you intend to play a quarter-note rhythm, but actually there is a
little unevenness before and after the beats. In this case, if you quantize at quarter-note
(1/4) timing, you can correctly match the rhythms.

What is MIDI?
MIDI, short for “Musical Instrument Digital
Interface,” is a standard that defines how the
exchange of performance information between electronic instruments and computers takes place.
The MT 300s features a MIDI connector and a computer connector to allow performance information to
be exchanged with external devices. Connecting
external equipment in this manner lets you use the
MT 300s in an even greater variety of ways.

The MT 300s features two types of MIDI connectors.
When external devices are hooked up to these connectors, each device can be set up to control the other.
Devices that are connected to the MT 300s’s MIDI
connector are referred to as “MIDI devices.”
MIDI Sync Switch—This is used to determine
whether the song uses the MT 300s’s tempo or the
tempo from the external MIDI device connected to the
MT 300s (p.102).
MIDI Out Connector
Performance information output by, for example,
playing the keyboard is sent to external MIDI devices
from this connector.
MIDI In Connector
MIDI messages sent by external MIDI devices are
received via this connector. MIDI devices from which
MIDI messages are received may perform such
actions as playing sounds and switching tones.

About the MT 300s’s Sound
Generator
Selecting the Sound
Generator
The MT 300s’s internal sound generator supports both
the General MIDI System and the GS Format.
You can also use the MT 300s’s sound generator for
MIDI devices that do not contain sound generators by
connecting those devices to the MT 300s.
You can have the sound of any part produced by
either the MT 300s’s internal sound generator, or the
sound generator of a connected MIDI device. This setting is called “MIDI Out.”
TERMS
1. In Step 4 of the MIDI settings procedure (p.100),
press the Beat [ ] button or Tempo [ ] button
until “MIDI Out” appears in the upper part of the
screen.
What is a Sound Generator?
A sound generator does just what the name suggests,
that is, it generates or creates and outputs sounds. The
MT 300s internal sound generator can produce sounds
for sixteen separate parts. In addition, you can select
the tones to be played in each part, with a tremendous
variety of instrument sounds from which to choose.
2. Switch the setting with the [Dial].

General MIDI system
The General MIDI system is a set of recommendations which seeks to
provide a way to go beyond the limitations of proprietary designs, and
standardize the MIDI capabilities of sound generating devices. Sound
generating devices and music files that meets the General MIDI standard bears the General MIDI logo (
). Music files bearing the
General MIDI logo can be played back using any General MIDI
sound generating unit to produce essentially the same musical performance.

The GS Format (
) is Roland’s set of specifications for standardizing the performance of sound generating devices. In addition to
including support for everything defined by the General MIDI
System, the highly-compatible GS Format additionally offers an
expanded number of sounds, provides for the editing of sounds,
and spells out many details for a wide range of extra features,
including effects such as reverb and chorus.
Designed with the future in mind, the GS Format can readily
include new sounds and support new hardware features when they
arrive.
Since it is upwardly compatible with the General MIDI System,
Roland’s GS Format is capable of reliably playing back GM Scores
equally as well as it performs GS Music Files (music files that has
been created with the GS Format in mind).
This product supports both the General MIDI system and the GS
format, and can be used to play back music files carrying either of
these logos.

Converting MIDI Channels
In general, when recording or playing back songs with
MIDI devices and MIDI sequencers connected, material is recorded to the sequencer channel (or part) with
the same number as the MIDI Transmit channel selected by the connected MIDI device. Therefore, it is necessary to match the channels (parts) of the MIDI
device and the MIDI sequencer.
With the MT 300s, you can play back songs and record to
parts selected automatically by the MT 300s, even without changing the channel (part) of the connected MIDI
device. This setting is called “RX Channel Convert.”
1. In Step 4 of the MIDI settings procedure (p.100),
press the Beat [ ] button or Tempo [ ] button
until “Rx.Ch Conv.” appears in the upper part of
the screen.

Synchronizing with
Connected MIDI Devices
You can have connected MIDI devices played by the tempo
produced by the MT 300s; you can also have the tempo
produced by connected MIDI devices play the MT 300s.
This setting for this is called the “MIDI Sync Switch.”
Having connected MIDI devices work at the same
tempo, and start and stop at the same timing is called
“synchronization.”
1. In Step 4 of the MIDI settings procedure (p.100),
press the Beat [ ] button or Tempo [ ] button
until “MIDI Sync” appears in the upper part of

Music Files that can be Used with the MT 300s
Music Files that can be
Used with the MT 300s
TERMS
What Are Music Files?
Music files contain information describing the details
of a musical performance, such as “the C3 key on a
keyboard was pressed for this amount of time, using
this amount of force.” By inserting the floppy disk
into the disk drive on the MT 300s, the performance
information is sent from the floppy disk to the piano,
and played faithfully by the piano. This is different
than a CD, since the music file does not contain a
recording of the sound itself. This makes it possible
to erase certain parts, or to change instruments, tempos and keys freely, allowing you to use it in many
different ways.
Regarding Copyright
Use of the song data supplied with this product for
any purpose other than private, personal enjoyment
without the permission of the copyright holder is prohibited by law. Additionally, this data must not be
copied, nor used in a secondary copyrighted work
without the permission of the copyright holder. Using
existing copyrighted material(commmercially available SMF music files, etc.) to create your own composition is permitted only for your private, personal
enjoyment. Be aware that any other use may constitute copyright infringement. Roland Corporation
assume no responsibility whatever for any copyright
infringement that may result from a work that you
create.
SMF Music files (720KB/1.44MB Format)
SMF (Standard MIDI Files) use a standard format for
music file that was formulated so that files containing
music file could be widely compatible, regardless of
the manufacturer of the listening device. An enormous variety of music is available, whether it be for
listening, for practicing musical instruments, for
Karaoke, etc.
If you wish to purchase SMF music files, please consult the retailer where you purchased your MT 300s.
Floppy Disks Containing SMF (Standard MIDI File)
Songs Created with a Computer Sequencer
The MT 300s can play back SMF (Standard MIDI File)
songs for GS sound generators that are created on
computers and similar equipment.
* SMF songs created on IBM or IBM-compatible PCs, and
playable with GS sound generators can be played back
and recorded upon as is. You can use other sequencers
and computers (including Atari, Macintosh computers)
to play back and record SMF songs created for GS sound
generators by saving their files on a computer using 3.5inch 2DD floppy disks formatted on the MT 300s.
* When you want to use the MT 300s to listen to songs
created on Atari series computers, first save the songs on
floppy disks that have been formatted on the MT 300s.
However, you cannot put songs saved in a different format on the same disk.
* Some songs may not be completely playable on the MT
300s.
* Whenever possible, convert songs to Format 0.
The MT 300s allows you to
use the following music files:
The Music File Disk included with the MT 300s
Floppy disks saved on a Roland MT Series, or
Roland Piano Digital HP-G/KR Series instrument
Roland Digital Piano Compatible music files
Roland`s original music file is made specifically for
practicing the piano. Some follow an instructional
curriculum, allowing for a complete range of lessons,
such as “practicing each hand separately” or “listening to only the accompaniment.”
112
Format 1 suffers the following limitations:
• Handles a maximum of only 33 data tracks.
• Cannot play back some songs containing large
amounts of data.
• Requires more time to begin playback of songs.
* Save SMF (Standard MIDI File) songs created on
Macintosh computers onto MT 300s-formatted disks,
using Apple File Exchange or Macintosh PC Exchange
software. When doing this, change the file name, using a
maximum of eight characters followed by the .MID
extension.

Glossary
Glossary
Basic Settings
Sound Generator
The sounds and volume levels for each part, the basic
tempo, and other settings that are predetermined for
each song are called the “basic settings.” On the MT
300s, you can listen to songs after temporarily making
changes to the parameters of a song’s basic settings—
the status of each part’s tone, volume, panpot, reverb,
and chorus—and change the basic settings and basic
tempo of the song itself (p.56).
The sound generator of the MT 300s supports
GM/GS, and can play more than 300 different sounds
(p.101).
Bouncing Ball
The flashing dot that moves in a semicircular pattern
across the screen of the MT 300s is called a “bouncing
ball” (p.15).
Drum Set
A Drum Set is a collection of percussive instrument
sounds. With drum sets, a different sound can be
heard for each key on the keyboard. The special
effects sound set is called the SFX Set (p.55, 58, 64,
109).
Editing
Editing is to change the song you have recorded, such
as by erasing part of the song, or copying a measure
(p.78).
Ensemble
“Ensemble” is when two or more instruments perform at the same time.
Part
On the MT 300s, “Part” can have two different meanings. One meaning refers to a performance part, such
as the right-hand part of a piano song (p.38). The
other refers to the 16 parts in the 16-track sequencer
(p.55, 56).
Pickup
A song with a pickup does not start on the first beat
(p.73).
Playback
The MT 300s plays back the performance information
(p.26).
PU (Pickup)
A song that does not start on the first beat starts with
what is called a pickup.When playing a pickup song,
the measures will be shown in the display as “PU, 1,
2...” (p.26).
Saving
Saving is storing the recorded performance data onto
a floppy disk (p.49).
114
Standard Pitch
The pitch of the sound created by playing the middle
A on the keyboard is called the “standard pitch.”
Changing the standard pitch of the MT 300s is called
“Master Tuning,” and tuning to other musical instrument is called “Tuning” (p.19, 24).
Tone
Tones are the musical instruments or effect sounds
stored in the internal memory of the MT 300s.
