I've never tried to convert phrase pads to MIDI files. I'll have a look.  

I don't think you understand the question.  We would like to record a midi pattern "like an arpeggio" to a pad, from an external midi device, but it wont record.

The OPs original question was how to record pad data to a MIDI recorder track or convert/export pad data as a standard MIDI file.  Pad phrases can be recorded by DAW software.  The MZ will output MIDI data as the pads playback phrases.    

 

As far as recording MIDI data received by MZX MIDI IN with MZX sequencers, that is not possible.  That is not possible in any keyboard I have used.  Perhaps some other brand may have created a model which can do that, although I'm not aware of one.  

 

I'm not aware of a way to convert standard MIDI files to a phrase and import that data, although it may be possible.

Brad understood my question correctly. I want to record existing pad phrase into MIDI file.

Thank you Brad for inspiration, I try to use some midi recorder in computer for recording pad phrases.

Could you explain how pad phrases can be recorded by DAW software? I was trying send midi messages from my computer to Casio and it's received, but when it comes to recording into a pad nothing happens. It seems MZ-X500 wants to record only what's been played from its own keyboard but not any external...

That is not possible.  Phrase pads can only be recorded by playing the keyboard.
