When Soft Thru is turned on, musical messages received at MIDI IN are re - transmitted from MIDI OUT as they are recorded. This means that as you record, you can hear how the MIDI sound modules connected to the sequencer's MIDI OUT will sound during playback. Here's what happens when a MIDI keyboard is connected to a sequencer which is recording with its Soft Thru turned On. If the MIDI keyboard is set to Local On, each note played on the keyboard will be sounded both directly from the keyboard, and by the message that passed through the sequencer back into the keyboard. This will make each note be sounded twice, or perhaps cut off unnaturally. On the other hand if the MIDI keyboard is set to Local Off, the note messages from the keyboard will pass through the sequencer and play the sound generator built into the keyboard.

The MC - 50 is initially set so that MIDI OUT 2 is Soft Thru On, so simply connect this connector to the MIDI IN of your MIDI keyboard. If your keyboard is set to Local off or does not have a Local On/Off function, connect it to the MIDI OUT 1 (Soft Thru Off) of the MC - 50. -J) » MIDI о Souncr source fr« i- I Local On { j MC-50 MIDI 0UT1 ШШШШШ ft 1 MIDI OUT MIDI IN Soft Thru Off internal memory The following chart shows the ways in which the Local On/Off setting of your MIDI keyboard and the Soft Thru On/Off setting of the MC - 50 can be combined.
