How Do I Record usingTrack over Track on my PSR540

The PSR540 is equipped with a 16 Track real-time sequencer. The sequencer data is stored directly to an IBM formatted 720KB (2DD) floppy disk, with a capacity of 65,000 notes, or a 1.44MB (HD) floppy disk, with a capacity of 130,000 notes. The recordings are saved on the floppy disk in Standard MIDI File Format 0.

The Track over Track procedure below involves recording one Track at a time until the Song is complete. It is practical for the user that wants to record multiple ”takes” of a single part, a single part in various sections, or multiple parts one after the other.

NOTE: Yamaha Style Disks (Auto Accompaniments) and XG MIDI files (Backup Tracks) are available for purchase online at www.yamahamusicsoft.com. To order by phone, call Music Dispatch at (800) 637-2852. Ask for the Software Catalog.
