MS-8
THE SWITCH-SWITCHER
No TAPDANCE anymore!
The MS-8 switches up to 17 units at the same time, conventional amps, effect-units, etc., whether if they understand MIDI or not.
The MS-8 is perfect on stage, for practicing and recording. Any self-created combination of switch settings can be recalled.
A musician can switch all components of his whole setup just by one stomp on one footswitch.

Introduction
Index / Introduction
Some problems everybody is familar with:
You collect more and more small and big effect-units. To change from one sound to another means a wild tapdance on the various footswitches. As it is not possible (In time) to
switch all units, many musicians only use a small selection of their effect-units. Interesting and unique sounds could not be used in live performance. The MS-8 had been developed
to enable musicians to use all possible sound creations on stage, in rehearsal sessions and studios. With a simple stomp on one footswitch the MS-8 is capable of switching up
to eight conventional units, plus MIDI equipment.
The MS-8 is equipped to switch advanced models of several big brand names by offering special connectors.
How does it work? The following pages will tell you how you can simplify your setup and how you can use sound creations without any trouble - even if it is only for one note.
Time for music: Just play guitar and leave the switching work to the MS-8. Your Nº1-OF-HAMBURG team.

1 Front of the MS-8
(1) The LC-DISPLAY
To communicate with the MS-8 please follow the instructions of the LC-DISPLAY (1).
The data in each menu shows data which can be changed by pressing one of the
CURSOR keys (2) [ ], [ ][ ] and [ ], or the functionkeys (F1 - F4) (5). The viewing
angle of the LC-DISPLAY is adjustable, by using the DISPLAY CONTRAST control
(16), located on the rear. This is very helpful if the MS-8 is mounted high in a rack or
low on a small amp.
(2) The CURSOR keys
With the CURSOR keys [ ] and [ ] you can select the functions or parameters of
the MS-8, and with the CURSOR keys [ ] and [ ] you can change the values of
those parameters.
(3) The "STORE" key
With this key you can store or copy programs. In some menus the "STORE" key is
used for special functions, to make handling easier. (see corresponding chapters)
(4) The "EXIT" key
With this key you can interupt a store or copy function without changing anything. With
the CURSOR keys (2) you select a menu ("Go into" a menu) and with the "EXIT" key
(4) you leave it ("Go out" of a menu).

(5) The FUNCTION keys (F1 - F4)
These four keys have the same functions as the connected FOOTSWITCHES (F1-F4)
(13) at the rear of the MS-8. (If the MS-8 is in the "PLAY") In some menus these keys are
used for special functions, to make handling easier. (see corresponding chapters)
(6) The LED-lamps above key "SWITCHES 1 - 8"
show whether a connected unit is activated or is not activated. In non activated state the
LEDS are dimmed so that you still can see them in the dark. Flashing of one LED indicates
special functions. (see corresponding chapters)
(7) The key "SWITCHES 1 - 8"
These keys control the switches / relays. Also you can select special functions for these
keys in some menus.
2 Rear of the MS-8
(8) The ON / OFF SWITCH
This key switches the MS-8 ON and OFF.
(9) The AC-IN jack
Connect the power supply unit (PSU) to this jack. You can use either a PSU with AC 7.5V
/ 1A or DC 10V / 1.2 A.
WARNING: Other PSU may not work properly or could damage the MS-8.

(10) The MIDI IN jack
This jack connects units which can send MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE DATA.
E.g.: Sequencers, MIDI footcontrollers, keyboards, etc.
(11) MIDI OUT jack
This jack connects to any units which can receive MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE
DATA.
(12) RC-8 INPUT jack
The RC-8 remote controller can be connected to this jack with a standard stereo
cable. (The RC-8 is a optional footcontroller for the MS-8 with 8 footswitches and
a big 4 digit display).
NOTE: If you do not use a RC-8 controller you must use a standard mono cable!
(13) FOOTSWITCH Jacks F1 - F4
The MS-8 also can be controlled by inexpensive footswitches. Up to 4 remote
footswitches can be connected to the 4 FOOTSWITCHES jacks F1 - F4 on the back
panel. For correct functioning you must use momentary switches. The type which
has closed contact during pressing and open contact in released state.

This switch matches the MS-8 to various Fender (*1) amp models of the old generation and
prepares the 2 jack SWITCHES 1 + 2 (18) for these amps.
(18) RED / PLAIN jacks
Fender amps of the old generation can be connected to these jacks with 2 standard stereo
cables.
(19) "SWITCHES 1 - 8" jacks
All amplifiers, effect-units, etc. which have an input for a remote footswitch can be
connected to these 8 jacks. All connected units can now be controlled by the "SWITCHES
1-8" on the front panel of the MS-8.
(20) NORM. - STEREO slide switch
This switch matches the MS-8 to various Marshall, Mesa Boogie (*1), etc. models. The jack
"SWITCHES 6" now works in stereo mode, controlling 2 functions (Like Channel switching
and Reverb)
(14) ASSIGN switch
This switch matches the MS-8 to various Fender (*1) amp models. (F-AMP)
(15) OUT jack
Fender amps of the new generations can be connected to this special jack.

"STORE" PROGRAMS (1-128)
If you change anything on a "PLAY" PROGRAM (1-128) the DISPLAY will change
from "PLAY" to "EDIT".
If the message "WRITE PROTECT" appears on the display instead of "EDIT"
you can not overwrite the data.
The display shows "EDIT" if you change anything on the actual program!
After pressing the "STORE" key the LEDS "SWITCHES 1-8" are flashing
and the display shows: (E.g.) "STORE 1 TO 1"
This is the memory protection feature. If you want to make any changes you have to
change the "WRITE PROTECT" to OFF. See also chapter "MEMORY PROTECTION".
If you want to store a PROGRAM (1-128) you have to press the "STORE" key once.
Now the LED of the key "SWITCHES 1-8" are flashing and the display shows:
If you want to move the actual PROGRAM (1-128) to another, you have to press one
of the keys [ ] or [ ] until you reached the desired PROGRAM NUMBER.
This is your last chance to leave the store process. You interupt it if you
press the "EXIT" key!
A second press on the "STORE" key finally stores the PROGRAM.
You can immediately interupt the "STORE" process by pressing the "EXIT" key.

"COPY" PROGRAMS (1-128)
If you press the "STORE" key twice the actual program (Number after
"STORE") will be stored to the desired PROGRAM NUMBER (Number
after "TO"). This program can be changed to another location if you
change it with one of the CURSOR keys [ ] or [ ].
To copy a PROGRAM (1-128) to another location you have to press the "STORE"
key once. Now the LEDS of the keys "SWITCHES 1-8" are flashing.
To move the actual PROGRAM (1-128) to the desired PROGRAM (1-128), you have
to press the one of the [ ] or [ ] keys until you reached the desired PROGRAM

Switches / Relays

The function of the Switches / Relays
With the keys "SWITCHES 1-8" you can create your own switch settings. But it
depends on which switch is needed for your device. There are four different kinds of
switches:
positive or negative latched type switches
positive or negative momentary switches.
Main menu:
LEDS on the front of the MS-8
The LED "SWITCHES 1-8" only show the active or passive state of the connected
unit.
Bright indicates the active state and dim indicates the passive state. (If the LEDS are
dimmed you can see them better in the dark!) So you have to configure the switches
first.
Also you can adjust the "PULSE TIME" between 1 and 100 ms.
Simulation of the SWITCHES / RELAYS:
The LEDS are showing the state:

NOTE: If you change one or more switches in the "PLAY" mode the DISPLAY
immediately shows "EDIT" to indicate the difference between the stored data.
TIP:
Try to find out the shortest PULSE TIME. All momentary switches are set to 20ms
after the "FACTORY SETUP". If some units will not work properly increase the
time until the switching is save. Most computer equipped units needs longer
time to switch.

MIDI / F-AMP "Older generation"
How to connect an older F-AMP
You can recognize these kind of amps by using the F-AMP list "Older generation"
or by having a closer look at the footswitch. The footswitch uses two rectangular
stereo standard plugs. One is marked with a red label the other is plain (chrome).
The footswitch itself contains two switches and two LEDS (red / green).
View of the rear
To setup the MS-8 set the slide switch "NORM. - RED PLAIN" located at the rear
of the MS-8 to position "RED PLAIN".
With two stereo cables you connect the MS-8 jack "SWITCHES (1+2) to the F-AMP.
Important: Set the two SWITCHES (1+2) to NEG. SWITCH.
