  1. Song Position Pointer: Is an internal register which holds the number of MIDI beats (1 beat = 6 MIDI clocks) since the start of the song. Normally it is set to 0 when the START switch is pressed, which starts sequence playback. It then increments with every sixth MIDI clock receipt, until STOP is pressed. If CONTINUE is pressed, it continues to increment. It can be arbitrarily preset (to a resolution of 1 beat) by the SONG POSITION POINTER message.
  2. Song Select: Specifies which song or sequence is to be played upon receipt of a Start (Real-Time) message.
  3. Tune Request: Used with analog synthesizers to request them to tune their oscillators.
  4. EOX: Used as a flag to indicate the end of a System Exclusive transmission (see Table VI).
