Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Millennia
Media HV-3R Remote-Controllable High Voltage
Microphone Preamplifier. The HV-3R is the result of
meticulous listening tests on numerous circuit,
topology, and packaging designs. Your HV-3R is a
finely tuned instrument intended for critical
professional applications — we feel it offers the
world's most sonically neutral microphone
preamplification.
The HV-3R is designed to be used:
•
•
•
Locally via the front panel controls – Referred to
as “Local Mode”.
Remotely via LAN from the HV-3R Ælogic PC
remote control software. Up to 48 units can be
simultaneously controlled with LAN.
Remotely via MIDI. Up to 9 units can be
simultaneously controlled with MIDI in Pro Tools,
or 16 with some other MIDI device.
The HV-3R can be used as a stand-alone, locally
controlled eight-channel mic preamp similar to its
sister product, the renowned HV-3D. Optional 130V
mic inputs are available for use with high voltage
microphones, such as DPA 4003 and 4012. Two
additional buffered/balanced outputs (per channel)
are available with the optional HROE expansion
board (via DB25 connectors). Eight channels of
internal A/D conversation are also available with the
optional AD-R96 expansion card.
Up to 48 HV-3Rs can be simultaneously controlled –
a total of 384 channels on one system. A high-speed
Ethernet control interface makes this possible
without any significant system control latency, even
if all 384 channels were to change parameters
simultaneously.
The MIDI control interface is compatible with
Digidesign’s Pro Tools® “PRE” remote microphone
preamplifier protocol. As defined by Digidesign, up
to nine units can be simultaneously controlled with
MIDI in Pro Tools. Up to 16 can be controlled per
MIDI port with a standalone MIDI device, or other
MIDI compatible software.

with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference when the equipment is operated
in a commercial environment. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with this instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Operation of
this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause
harmful interference in which case the user will be
required to correct the interference at his or her own
expense.
Safety Precautions
For your safety and the safety of others, be sure to
read and understand all safety and operational
instructions before attempting to use the HV-3R.
WARNING: The HV-3R internal circuitry carries lethal
voltages. Carefully observe all warnings, precautions,
and instructions on the HV-3R and as described in
the instructions supplied with the unit.
Water, Moisture, and Spillage – Do not attempt
to use the HV-3R in, near, or around water or in
unusually moist environments, such as near a sink or
swimming pool. Prevent liquids or any other
materials or objects from spilling or falling into the
HV-3R unit.
Heat And Ventilation – Be sure to allow adequate
ventilation to HV-3R and avoid using or installing
unit in close proximity to heat sources, such as
heaters, stoves, radiators, power amplifiers,
spotlights, or other heat-producing appliances or
equipment. It is best to leave one rack screw space
between units if possible.
Power Sources and Power Cord Protection –
The HV-3R Power Supply should be connected to a
power source only of the type described in the
operating instructions or as marked on the Power
Supply. Route the power cord so that it is not likely
to be walked on or pinched by having objects placed
on it. Pay particular attention to plugs, receptacles,
and the point where the AC power cord exits the
HV-3R.
Grounding – For your safety, it is extremely
important that the grounding pin of the 3-wire power
cable (included with 110 Volt units) be inserted into
a grounding type 3-pin power outlet. If you are
unable to insert the plug into an existing outlet,
contact an electrician to install a properly grounded
3-pin power outlet, preferably that with OFI / CFI
protection, if available.
Millennia Media HV-3R
Damage Requiring Service – This unit should be
repaired or serviced by qualified personnel
whenever:
· The AC power cord has been damaged, or
· Objects have fallen or liquid has spilled into any
HV-3R unit, or
· The unit does not function properly or exhibits a
marked change in performance, or
· The unit has been abused, dropped, or damaged,
or
· The unit has been exposed to rain or moisture.
Servicing – Lethal voltages are found inside the
HV-3R chassis. The user should not attempt to repair
or service this unit. All servicing and/or repairs
should be referred to Millennia.
If, after reading all instructions, precautions, and
warnings, you have remaining questions, please
contact Millennia directly before attempting to use
your HV-3R.
Before connecting power to the HV-3R, assure that
the rear panel voltage selection fuse block switch is
set correctly. In the USA, Canada or Japan, HV-3R is
shipped with the voltage selection block set to
100-120 VAC. If you change the voltage selection
block to 200-240 VAC usage, be sure to change both
fuses to the correct types. See “Rear Panel”
instructions for proper fuse requirements.
The HV-3R enclosure measures approximately 17”
wide x 3.5” high x 16” deep and is designed for
mounting into a standard 2U, 19” equipment rack. If
the HV-3R is mounted in a road case or other rack
which is prone to strong vibration or shock, it is
highly recommended that the rear of the HV-3R be
supported or otherwise reinforced to withstand such
conditions. HV-3R contains discrete transistors,
many running in Class-A bias. As such, the HV-3R
runs quite warm and should be mounted for proper
ventilation with at least one rack screw space open
above and below the unit.
HV-3R is designed on a common ground topology.
For high quality operation, and for your own safety
and the safety of others, do not defeat the power
cord earth grounding pin.
HV-3R Front-End Protection – Millennia Music &
Media Systems enjoys a reputation for what many
top engineers and producers call the world’s most
musically accurate and dynamically uniform
microphone preamplifier — the HV-3. But this
thoroughbred design is not achieved without certain
operating criteria. Back-to-back Zener diodes protect
the super-matched discrete bipolar input transistors
against high transient energy spikes common when
inserting and extracting XLR connectors. To maintain
top performance and protect the HV-3R’s sensitive
HV-3 front-end, it is advised that you do not insert
or extract XLR connectors with power on. Get in the
habit of disabling AC power and waiting about ten
seconds for the phantom power to fully “ramp down”
before inserting or removing a microphone. This is
good advice for protecting your microphone
investments, as well.

Channel Display
The large LCD displays the channel number, the gain
setting (8 dB to 69 dB in 1.0 db increments),
overload indication via a small “OL” icon, channel
mute, and a channel bar graph level meter.
Channel Number Indication – Channel indication
is shown numerically when in Local and LAN remote
mode, and alpha-numerically when in MIDI remote.
For example, if the unit is assigned Unit ID 01,
channel 6 is displayed as “6” in Local and LAN
modes. If assigned MIDI channel 01 “6a” is displayed
(the letter indicates the MIDI channel assigned. a=1,
b=2… p=16).
Channel numbering is correlated to the Unit ID
number in LAN remote, or MIDI channel in MIDI
remote. For instance, in LAN remote if the unit ID is
set to “03,” that unit’s channel numbering will
display channels “17 – 24” (see remote operation for
more on setting the Unit ID).
Channel Mute – When a channel’s Mute is engaged,
the word “MUTE” will appear in place of the channel’s
gain setting (Channel 7 above).
Level Meter – The level meter is a bar graph meter
with eight segments. The approximate corresponding
output levels are:
OUTPUT
BAR
(balanced)
OVL
+22 dBu
7
+20 dBu
6
+16 dBu
5
+12 dBu
4
+8 dBu
3
+4 dBu
2
-10 dBu
1
-19 dBu
When MIDI remote is enabled, each Unit has a letter
(“a” through “p”) after each channel number
indicating the MIDI channel (1 through 16). (see
remote operation for more on setting the MIDI
channel).
Gain Setting – Gain is shown numerically under the
channel number indication. For example, the number
“35” would represent 35 dB of microphone voltage
gain.
Overload Indication – To the right of the channel
number is an “OL” icon (Channel 2 above) which
appears if the channel output equals or exceeds a
peak of +22 dBu. Note that the HV-3R’s unclipped
output is +32 dBu.
“OL” does not indicate the clip point of
the HV-3R’s analog sections. Rather, it
indicates a warning to the user that the
HV-3R output is approaching the clip
level of many common outboard
recording devices.

Millennia Media HV-3R
Local Operation
The HV-3R is fully functional as a stand-alone
microphone preamplifier without the need for any
remote control.
Local operation of the HV-3R is straight forward. To
modify any control on a channel, press the desired
channel’s Select button. It will then illuminate,
indicating that the controls on the left side of the
front panel are active for that channel.
Press the five rectangular parameter buttons (Pad,
Link, etc.) to change the channel’s parameters. The
selected channel’s status LEDs will toggle on/off.
Turn the knob to change gain.
After 60 seconds of inactivity the selected channel
will automatically revert to the unselected state.
Push Select if you wish to activate again. This value
can be modified in the Advanced Mode
Link – This parameter allows the user to link the
Gain and Mute parameters of any (or all) channels.
To link, press the channel Select button of a channel
to be linked, then press the Link button.
Links are cleared when you go into the
Remote mode. If you want to keep
links, save them before you change
modes.
All linked channels will track gain in identical
increments. For instance, if channels 1 and 2 are
linked with respective gains of 10 and 20 dB,
increasing the gain of either linked channel by 5 dB
will result in channel gains of 15 and 25 dB,
respectively.
Gain linking is helpful when tracking with stereo or
surround microphones. If Mute is selected on any
linked channel, all linked channels will mute. Channel
linking applies to gain and mute, only. No other
parameters (pad, phantom, etc.) are linked by this
parameter.
Gain Adjust – To adjust a channel’s gain, press the
channel Select button. It will illuminate. Now turn
the knob. You will see a numerical gain change on
the large display above that channel.
Mute – To mute a channel, press the channel’s
Select button, then press the Mute button. That
channel will now be muted and the LCD gain setting
will indicate the word “MUTE”. Linked channels will
mute if any member of the link is muted.
Polarity Flip – To invert the audio output polarity
(180 degrees) of any channel, press the channel
Select button, then press the POL button. That
channel’s output signal will now be opposite of the
input signal. Technically, this is not a “phase
adjustment” as the waveform does not shift in time.
Pad – To attenuate a channel’s output by 14 dB,
press the channel Select button, then press the PAD
button. That channel’s output signal will be padded
by 14 dB, though the gain shown in that channel’s
LCD will not change.
Phantom Power – To apply 48 volt phantom power
to a channel, press the channel Select button, then
press the 48V parameter button. That channel will
now have 48V phantom power applied equally to
both pin 2 and pin 3 of that channel’s input XLR.
CAUTION – DO NOT PLUG A MIC IN
WITH THE PHANTOM POWER ON. IT
CAN DAMAGE THE MICROPHONE AND
THE PREAMP INPUT

192.168.1.201
In order to control the HV-3R via LAN, first make
sure that there is a cable connected between the
computer’s LAN port and the LAN port of the HV-3R.
If more than one preamp is being used, a network
must be setup. You will need a 100 Mbps or faster
router/switch such as the LinkSys EZXS55W or
equivalent (for 4 HV-3Rs). For larger systems, use a
wider switch.
We recommend using a network that is dedicated to
only the HV-3Rs for greater reliability.

Ælogic Operation
Millennia’s Ælogic remote control software is
straightforward to operate. Here is an in-depth
description of the available functions of the GUI.
Refer to Appendix for a list of keyboard shortcuts.
Unit Status Window – The example screen above
shows a Unit Status window in which six HV-3R units
(48 channels) are connected to the remote network.
The Unit Status window displays an icon of each
HV-3R unit on the network. The status of each
HV-3R is represented by its icon’s color code, as
follows:
Red Icon – “Unit ID Has a Conflict with Another
Unit”. If two or more HV-3Rs share the same Unit
ID number or IP address, their icons will turn red,
and will show identical IDs or IP addresses until the
conflict is resolved.
Setting a Unit ID or IP address must be done locally
on each HV-3R. Other errors could also cause a red
icon, such as over-temperature, power supply out of
range, other networking errors, etc.
Green Icon – “Functioning Normally”. Remote unit
functioning normally.
Millennia Media HV-3R
Flashing Green Icon – “Functioning Normally,
Local Mode”. Remote unit is functioning normally but
is in the local mode.
If the unit is in Local mode when Ælogic is
started, it won’t appear. Be sure to
change the unit to Remote mode so the
software can recognize the HV-3R.
Purple Icon – “Unit ID Is Offline”. A unit used to
be connected to the network and set to this Unit ID.
The unit is missing from the network. It was either
turned off or the Ethernet was disconnected or both.
Gray Icon – “Unit ID Is Inactive”. No unit is
connected to the network and set to this Unit ID.
Unit Status Dialog – Double left mouse click on
any icon brings up that unit’s Unit Status dialog box
displaying the following information:

Overview
Overview – Expands the channel control area to
show multiple units. Virtual switches are replaced by
small virtual LEDs. Link switch is replaced by link
group number only. Other attributes are shrunk to
fit. All functions remain accessible and adjustable on
the Overview Screen.
Ælogic is always the master control
when the unit is in Remote Mode. Any
changes made in to the unit’s front
panel in the Local mode will be
overwritten when the HV-3R is put
back into Remote Mode.
Above is a screen-shot of the OVERVIEW.
Control Section
Basic Navigation and Behavior
The channel controls are grouped into their
respective HV-3R 8-channel Units. The screen shot
on the previous page, shows units #1 and #2. You
can left-click on any unit icon shown in the Unit
Status window to immediately bring that unit’s
channel controls into the main screen.
Note the scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. It
allows the user to quickly scroll to any unit in the
network. You can also move the Control Section by
using the Left and Right arrow keys on the keyboard.
Pressing an arrow key once corresponds to scrolling
in that direction by one channel strip.

name for each unit is its Unit ID. For instance,
“UNIT 1” corresponds with channels 1-8 and “UNIT
3” corresponds with channels 17-24. Right-clicking
on the Unit Name area opens the Unit Name dialog
(shown above) which allows textual naming of that
unit. A section for notes is also available to include
any supplementary information about the unit.
In order to name multiple units quickly, the “Prev”
and “Next” buttons allow the user to scroll through
units without closing the dialog box. If a unit has
been re-named from the default, the new Unit Name
will now be displayed in the Unit Name box. The
Naming Window can also be accessed from the
pull-down menus (Edit>Unit Naming).
Millennia Media HV-3R
Channel Number – Channel numbers appear at the
top and bottom of the channel strip.
The preamp with Unit ID 1 will be assigned channels
1-8. Unit ID 2 will be assigned channels 9-16 ….Unit
ID 48 will be assigned channels 377-384.
POLarity Flip – Inverts channel audio output polarity
(180 degrees). The channel’s output waveform
becomes a mirror of the input signal. This is not a
“phase adjustment” as the output signal does not
shift in time relative to the input signal. Button
illuminates green.
PAD – Attenuates channel output by 14 dB. The
gain setting remains unchanged. Button illuminates
green.
48V – Applies 48 volt phantom power to the
respective mic input channel. Phantom power is
applied equally to both pin 2 and pin 3 of that
channel’s input XLR. Button illuminates yellow.
CAUTION – DO NOT PLUG A MIC IN
WITH THE PHANTOM POWER ON. IT
CAN DAMAGE THE MICROPHONE AND
THE PREAMP INPUT
MUTE – Mutes channel output. When channel is
muted, the meter will continue to operate allowing
the user to view audio activity on that channel
without passing live audio. Mute parameter is
linkable. Button illuminates red.
page 18 of 40
Channel Gain Faders/Gain Display – A traditional
looking “mixer fader” that adjusts preamp channel
gain. A text box below the fader indicates the actual
channel gain setting in decibels.
Standard gain range is 8 dB to 69 dB. A range of
8 dB to 80 dB is a no-charge option. Gain is
segmented in 1 dB steps. The Up and Down
keyboard arrow keys can also be used to adjust the
channel gain in 1dB steps.
Linked Gain – Linked Gain faders move together
maintaining the same distance they had when first
linked together. Once one fader reaches the upper
or lower extreme, the other faders in the same link
group stop moving in that direction.
Linked Gains can be trimmed by holding down the
Alt key while using the left mouse button. When the
Alt key is released, the channel reverts to linked
mode.
Linked Mute – Linked Mute parameters will turn on
and off together unless “Mute linked channels” is
unchecked in the Preferences dialog box (Setup>
Preferences>“Mute linked channels”). If this box is
unchecked, the mute parameters will act
independently just like the other parameters.
Scribble Strip (right-click on scribble strip)
A text box in which channels can be named, and
notes can be written and stored. See the screenshot
on the previous page.
Meter Preferences Dialog – The Meter Preferences
dialog box provides for customization of meter
display and functions. It can be accessed three
different ways: Shortcut Control-M, right-clicking
the meter display in the channel strip, or from the
pull down menus (Setup>Preferences>Metering).
To name multiple channels quickly, “Prev” and
“Next” buttons allow the user to scroll through
channels without closing the dialog box. If a channel
has been re-named from the default, the new
Channel Name will now be displayed in the Unit
Name box. The Naming Window can also be
accessed from the pull-down menus (Edit>Channel
Naming).
You can select either Meter Scale dBu (Usually for
an analog system) or dBFS for a digital system.
Peak Hold Time affects the numerical level
indicator above the meter and the floating line over
it.
Link Assignment – The Link parameter provides a
Gain and Mute linking utility. Linking applies to Gain
and Mute parameters only; no other parameters are
linkable.
The LINK button links and unlinks a channel from a
selected “link group”. There are ten selectable link
groups that can be chosen from the drop down box
next to the LINK button or the Link Matrix. When a
link group is chosen, the LINK button is
automatically selected and illuminates red. One link
group can be assigned per channel. If no link group
is selected, a depressed LINK switch will effectively
do nothing.

The Scene List – Scenes are arranged sequentially
within the Scene Window (000, 001, 002, etc.). The
Scene List is a scrollable list of all Scenes within the
Scene Window. Left-clicking a Scene Number/Name
will highlight it. No system functions will change until
the Recall button is clicked or until the desired scene
is double-clicked.
Project and Scene Management
Creating a Project – Before anything (new scenes,
changes to scenes, etc.) can be saved, a project
itself must be created by doing a Save. Use
File>Save to name the Project and find a location to
save it. File>Save (ctrl-S) will save any updates or
changes to the project unless a new name is desired
(use File>Save As (shift+ctrl S)).
Scene Window – Underneath the Scene Window
there are four buttons “Recall”, “New”, “Delete”,
and “Lock.” The functions of these buttons are
explained below.
Scene Window
The Scene Window is found in the upper left corner
of the screen. A Scene remembers and recalls all
parameters of the current software environment
(gains, mutes, links, etc.). Scenes are used for
applications such as concerts or stage plays in which
new acts or set changes require different microphone
gains, mutes, links, metering, etc.
There are a few physical aspects to the scene
window worth noting before creating new scenes and
projects:
“Active Scene: ###” – The active scene number
displays the number of the scene that is currently
active.
Scene Name Display – Just below the active scene
number is a text display that defaults to “Blank
Scene.” This area displays the user designated
name of the currently active scene.
“000 Blank Scene” – The default scene that is
automatically opened when the Ælogic is first loaded
or when a Project, New or Saved, is opened. The
Blank Scene is to be used as a null starting point.
Selecting scene 000 will force all parameters of all
networked units to their “off” or “lowest” settings.
This default scene cannot be overwritten.
page 21 of 40
Safety Prompts – In order to exercise caution when
using the Scene Window Functions, safety prompts
are available in case buttons are pressed
accidentally. Safety prompts can be enabled for:
•
New Scene
•
Recall Scene
•
Scene Delete
•
Scene Re-Ordering
To turn safety prompts on and off go to
“Setup>Preferences” in the pull-down menus. The
section labeled “Scene Prompts” will have check
boxes for the four choices.
Creating New Scenes – Scenes are created by
using the “New” button below the scene window.
Once this button is pressed the “Enter Scene Name”
dialog box appears.
The scene name can be entered in the upper text
box and a section for Notes is also available to
include any supplementary information about the
scene. Once the scene is named it will be appended
to the Scene Window (next available scene number).
A newly created scene will assume all parameters
and settings of the active scene. Creating or naming
a scene does not make it active. Only Recall or
double-clicking can activate a scene.
Renaming Scenes – Once scenes are created they
can be renamed by right-clicking on them. A dialog
box labeled “Rename Scene” will appear with the
same choices as the “Enter Scene Name” dialog box.
Reordering Scenes – Scenes are moved by
left-clicking and dragging them to the desired
location. Once a scene is moved, Ælogic will
automatically update the numbers in front of each
scene name.
rev 1.4.2 092309
Millennia Media HV-3R
Recalling Scenes – Scenes can be recalled two
different ways:
1.
2.
Highlight the desired scene and click the “Recall”
button.
Double click the scene name.
The scene’s parameters will be transmitted to all
HV-3R units on the network.
Scenes are not saved until you save the
project. (see Saving Scene Changes below
for information on how to save a scene)
Deleting Scenes – Scenes can also be deleted two
different ways: either highlighting the desired scene
and pressing the “Delete” button or highlighting it
and pressing the delete key on the keyboard.
Be careful when deleting scenes as the
“Undo” function does not work on
deleted scenes.
When a scene is deleted, higher scene numbers will
automatically decrement. If an attempt to delete the
currently Active Scene is made, a prompt will pop up
explaining that it is active and cannot be deleted.
Locking Scene Window Functions – Sometimes it
may be necessary to disable the functions of the
Scene Window. The “Lock” button serves this
purpose. When the button is engaged, the other
three functions will turn dark grey and will no longer
be functional. Parameters in the Control Section
(faders, Links, function buttons, etc.) will still be
functional.
Appending and Saving Scenes – Whenever a
change is made to any parameter or function, an
asterisk (*) will appear next to the active scene in
the Scene Window (with the exception of the Blank
Scene). The asterisk will remain visible until the
Project is saved. The asterisk indicates a “dirty
event” – meaning that changes have been made
since the last Project save.
Saving Scene Changes – All Scenes shown in the
Scene Window are saved each time the Project is
saved (File>Save OR ctrl-S). Any changes to a
Scene (a “dirty event”) will be lost if the Project is
not saved before recalling another Project or if the
Project is not saved before exiting the GUI.

and in the right column you should see your
Recording Interface and the channels it has
available with little boxes under each one.
Click the box for the Input on your Recording
Interface that corresponds to the first output of
the HV-3R.
The first output will appear in the box you
clicked while the next seven outputs will appear
in the boxes to the right. You can move the
outputs of the HV-3R around. Be sure that the
chosen inputs in Pro Tools correspond to how
they are connected physically to the Recording
Interface.
If multiple HV-3R units are being used
make sure that none of the channel
outputs of the HV-3Rs share inputs on
your Recording Interface. This will
cause many problems.
It is recommended that you connect
Outputs 1-8 of the first HV-3R to Inputs
1-8 on the Recording Interface and then
Outputs 1-8 on the second HV-3R to
Inputs 9-16 on the Recording Interface

Inductor Installation
This equipment has been tested and found to comply
with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are
designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference when the equipment is operated
in a commercial environment. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with this instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Operation of
this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause
harmful interference in which case the user will be
required to correct the interference at his or her own
expense.
This product was testing for FCC compliance
using a clamp-on ferrite inductor. If you are
using Ethernet, the inductor included with this
unit must be attached to the Ethernet cable at
the end connected to the HV-3R’s RJ-45, 5 cm
from the rear panel, to block possible RF
radiation coming from the cable.
5 cm
Snap the inductor closed.
Any changes or modifications not expressly
approved by Millennia Media, Inc. (Millennia)
could void your authority to operate this
equipment under the EC, ICAN, or FCC rules.
Make a loop near the connector end and place the
loop inside the inductor.

Clocks - the AD-R96 should have only one clock
source. If running with the internal clock, make sure
SW4 is in the INT position and no external clock is
connected.
AD-R96 (Option) User Guide
Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm delicate components on
the AD-R96 board. To prevent static damage,
discharge static electricity from your body before you
touch any electronic components. You can do so by
touching an unpainted metal surface on the HV-3R’s
chassis.
Sync Signals on the BNC connectors should
conform to the AES-3id specification. AES-3,
through an XLR-to-BNC transformer (Neutrik
NADITBNC-F or equivalent) will work fine.
S/PDIF works, but is not specified.
Unplug the HV-3R’s AC power cord before
inserting or removing the AD-R96 board

Millennia Media HV-3R
MIDI
If the HV-3R is going to be controlled via MIDI without Pro
Tools, a MIDI controller can be programmed, or MIDI
manipulation software such as PD (Pure Data) can be used to
control the preamp’s functions. This is a brief overview of
how MIDI works in regards to the HV-3R in order to help in
the process of programming a controller or software properly.
Brief Description of MIDI Control Change Messages
The HV-3R responds to MIDI Continuous Controller / Control
Change data in the form of 3 byte hexadecimal messages.
The form of these messages is:
Byte 1
(Status Byte)
Byte 2
(Data Byte 1)
Byte 3
(Data Byte 2)
0xBX
0xCC
0xVV
(The 0x part of each message designates that it is in
Hexadecimal form and can be ignored.)
In Byte 1 the “B” designates the message as a Control
Change message, and the “X” is a value from 0 to F in hex,
designating MIDI channel 1-16. The first byte is known as
the Status Byte.
In Byte 2 the “CC” is a value from “00” to “7F” in hex (0 to
127 in decimal). This byte designates which Controller
Number is being sent. This byte is known as Data Byte 1.
In Byte 3 the “VV” is a value from “00” to “7F” in hex (0 to
127 in decimal). This byte designates the Value being sent.
This byte is known as Data Byte 2.
MIDI Implementation for the HV-3R
The following Table provides a comprehensive description of
which MIDI Controller Numbers control each function on the
HV-3R. The 3rd and 4th columns represent Byte 2 and Byte 3
respectively. The values are shown in both Hexadecimal and
Decimal form for your convenience.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Controller Numbers for each HV-3R
function in no way correspond to their actual designated
functions as outlined by the midi spec. They were just
arbitrarily chosen in order to make the organization of control
easy to understand.

Millennia Media HV-3R
Simple MIDI Controller
Lagniappe – Something extra, our summer
intern, Turner Kirk, made this for testing and
we thought it might be a useful thing to have.
It is not supported by Millennia, so please
don’t call and ask for help. There are many
places on the internet where you can.
Go to this website:
http://www.puredata.org/downloads
Download the PD install file for your Operating
System and run the installation procedure.
Download the PD patch from Millennia Media
website.
http://www.mil-media.com/registration.html#down
Once PD is installed and the HV-3R patch has been
downloaded, open the patch and set up the MIDI
options. The MIDI options have to be set up each
time the patch is opened.
Setting up MIDI I/O in PD
1.
2.

4.
Make sure a MIDI Interface is connected
and working with the computer running PD.
Make sure there is a MIDI cable connected
from the MIDI Out of the HV-3R to the MIDI
In of the MIDI Interface. (If more than one
unit is going to be used with a single port
MIDI interface, connect the units in a daisy
chain fashion.)
In PD, Choose “Media > MIDI settings…”
from the pull down menu.
Set the “output device 1” to the MIDI Out
port on the interface that is connected to
the In port on the HV-3R.
Currently there is no use for input into
PD from the HV-3R. A connection from
HV-3R Out to PD In is not necessary.
Controlling the HV-3R with PD
The PD patch available on the Millennia Media
website is designed specifically for use with a single
HV-3R Unit. If more than one HV-3R is going to be
used, more than one of the same PD patch will need
to be opened, and different MIDI channels assigned,
in order for things to work correctly. This is due to
the fact that the HV-3R is not currently set up to
communicate with PD and update its controls. The
PD patch is meant to be a substitute for
programming a standalone MIDI controller or other
software to control the HV-3R and no technical
support other than this manual is offered by
Millennia Media. Visit http://www.puredata.org for
more information on PD.

The parameters available in the PD patch include all of the
parameters currently available for control of the HV-3R via
MIDI.

The layout of the patch is meant to mimic the layout of the
controls on the HV-3R’s front panel. There are eight toggle
buttons for changing Mute, Pol, Pad, and Phantom, and eight
sliders for changing gain.
To the right of the parameter controls is a section for setting
the MIDI channel and a “Reset HV-3R” Button. The Reset
button will zero all parameters on the HV-3R, but will not
affect any other functions locally on the HV-3R, such as MIDI
channel, Memory Locations etc.
At the very bottom of the patch is all the control data that
sends messages to the HV-3R. It is strongly recommended
not to tamper with these controls, as this will result in a
malfunction of the software’s capability to send control
messages to the HV-3R.
Setting the MIDI Channel in PD
A MIDI channel is chosen in the PD patch by clicking one of
the blue buttons labeled “MIDI_Channel_##”. This will choose
the MIDI channel used to communicate with the HV-3R and
must be the same as the MIDI channel set locally on the
HV-3R. The chosen MIDI channel will be displayed by the box
labeled “Current MIDI Channel”. If no MIDI channel is
chosen, the box will display a “0” but will in fact use MIDI
channel 1.
Basic Troubleshooting for PD patch
PD is not communicating with the HV-3R:
1. Make sure that the MIDI interface being used is
working properly and PD has been installed.
2. Make sure there is a MIDI cable connected from a
MIDI Out port on the MIDI interface to the MIDI In
port on the HV-3R.
3. Make sure that the correct MIDI out port is chosen
from “Media > MIDI settings…” on the pull down
menu.
4. Make sure that the HV-3R is in MIDI Remote Mode,
and the same MIDI channel assigned locally to the
HV-3R has also been chosen in PD and is displayed
by the box labeled “Current MIDI Channel”.
If communication still fails, the issue is beyond the scope
of this manual and is not supported by Millennia Media.
