    How do I use my USB to transfer my Rhythm track (doesnt seem to be numbered), to my computer? My manual doesnt explain how to select the rhythm track when doing this. Help?
    Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life. ~Ludwig van Beethoven

    Are we not formed, as notes of music are,
    For one another, though dissimilar?
    ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

    (This reply cut + pasted from the 'Roland and Boss...' forum)

    First of all, your custom rhythm track in the BR-864 can only be transmitted to a computer in the form of midi notes, and then only over the midi out. The USB interface is reserved for audio transfer only.

    You need to have a drum sampler --- meaning one note for the kick, one note for the snare and so on for each drum you want to hear --- to interpret the midi data in your software of choice. The midi notes will be transmitted in real time as you play the song on the BR-864. Plug the midi out of the BR-864 to the midi in on your computer interface, set up a midi track, set the software to sync to midi clock or midi time code, push record on the software and start playback on the BR-864.
