29. Setting MIDI options
The TR505 can be used to play other electronic musical instruments or act as a sound source to other electronic musical instruments, sequencers and computers through MIDI. When used to trigger on or more external MIDI devices, it is possible to use the instrument pads to play notes on the connected MIDI device(s). Use 'Accent' in Step/Tap Write mode to increase the Velocity (volume) of notes send to the external MIDI device(s).


  • In either mode, not running, press and hold 'Shift' button and press 'Midi' button repeatedly to switch between midi options 'MIDI Sync', 'OMNI Mode', 'Receive Channel', 'Note Number' and 'Transmit Channel'.

  • Release 'Midi' button at required MIDI option

  • Press 'Level down' or 'Level up' button to change the value of selected MIDI option

  • exRelease 'Shift' button to return to Track/Pattern mode

MIDI Sync: MIDI Sync is used to slave the TR505 to a connected MIDI device, usually a sequencer. When MIDI Sync is 'On' the Start/Stop function and Tempo will be controlled by the external MIDI device, display shows 'MIDI SYNC'. When MIDI Sync is 'Off' the TR505 is able to act as master to any connected MIDI device, controlling Start/Stop and Tempo. Possible values: On/Off


OMNI mode: OMNI mode determines to which MIDI channels the TR505 will respond when used as a sound source to an external MIDI device. When OMNI is 'On' the TR505 will respond to MIDI messages on all 16 MIDI channels. When OMNI is 'Off' the TR505 will respond only to messages on the channel selected as 'Receive Channel'. Possible values: On/Off
Receive Channel: Receive Channel is the MIDI channel on which the TR505 expects MIDI messages in OMNI OFF mode when used as a sound source to an external MIDI device. Possible values: 1-16
Note Number: Each of the 16 instruments can output it's own MIDI Note Number, enabling it to trigger up to 16 different notes on any connected MIDI device. Possible values: 25-99
Transmit Channel: Each of the 16 instruments can output to an individual MIDI channel, enabling it to trigger up to 16 different external MIDI devices. Possible values: 1-16
