Safety information
Please ensure that analogue devices are turned off before plugging them
in. This will protect you from any possible—albeit weak—electrical
shocks, as well as protecting your speakers and your hearing from sudden peaks.
Congratulations!
You've purchased the AXON AX 100 MKII, the world's fastest and most powerful guitar-to-MIDI converter
available on the market. The AXON AX 100 MKII is an enhanced development of the NGC 77, which had set
standards for innovative technology and had become standard equipment for many professional guitarists,
including John McLaughlin. Thanks to its neural network, the AXON AX 100 MKII is able to determine the
precise pitch of a note the instant it is picked, whereas other devices require several oscillations of the string
for analysis. The early recognition of transients lets the AXON simultaneously determine pitch, amplitude, and
even the location at which the string was picked—an unparalleled ability to date. This is due to the AXON's
unusual splitting options. For example, you can use a string split to divide the strings of your guitar into two
zones, each with its own sound properties. Or use a fret split to divide the fingerboard of your guitar into two
separate playing zones. Pick splits let you divide the picking area of the guitar into up to three independent
sound zones that you can select instantly by changing your picking position. You can achieve impressive effects with the pick control function, which lets you control modulation effects and others with your picking position. Special effects such as COMMON (bypass), SEPARATE (hold), LAYER (ensemble/doubling) and others
can be applied with the multi-programmable hold switch. The implementation of a full-featured arpeggiator
provides users further options to add expression to their playing with striking variations. Splits and effects can
be combined, stored in up to 128 complex presets and recalled as needed. Another unique feature of the
AXON AX 100 MKII is its unrestricted support for both acoustic guitars and basses with piezo hex pickups.
This opens the MIDI world to bass players and classical guitarists that are looking for new, contemporary
forms of expression. The internal soundboard upgrades the AXON AX 100 MKII to a professional guitar synthesizer for live use supporting ambitious musicians with over 500 excellent sounds, including 10 drum kits.
The AXON AX 100 MKII system is fully MIDI compatible, and also features an editable drum sequencer.

QuickStart guide — for those of you can't wait
Connect your guitar to the AXON AX 100 MKII. If your guitar is equipped with one of the optional interfaces
(PU 100, AIX 103), use the 13-pin cable (AXK 100) to do so. The socket at the left of the front panel labelled
GUITAR INPUT is the one you need.
If you are using an external MIDI instrument for audio output, connect the MIDI OUT of the AXON to the MIDI
IN of the instrument. You can skip this step if you intend to use the internal soundboard, of course.
Now connect the AXON AX 100 MKII to your mixer or amplifier using the SOUNDBOARD RIGHT / LEFT ports
on the rear panel. If you're using an external sound module, ensure that the optional sound module is connected to the mixer or amplifier.
Switch the device on now—but first, set the volume of your amplifier to zero to prevent possible peaks from
damaging your speakers and eardrums.
You're almost finished now. You should check a few basic settings before getting started, however. Press the
GLOBAL button. BASIC CHANNEL will now appear on the display. It should have the value 1. If not, change it
using the VALUE + and VALUE - buttons.
Press the PARAMETER + button to navigate to the next menu item, the HOLD CHANNEL. It should have the
value 11. (At any rate, the value should not be lower than 7. Refer to page 19 for more information)
Press PARAMETER + again for the SEQ CHANNEL. Ensure that it is set to 10.
We will skip over the next three settings for Sequencer Port and Pitchbend—for more information on these,
refer to page 19. The next important one is LOCAL MODE, which you can access by pressing the
PARAMETER + button. It should be set to ON if you intend to address the internal soundboard of the AXON
AX 100 MKII directly, or if the generated MIDI data are to be sent to the MIDI OUT. You can disable local
mode if you would like to control the AXON using a sequencer or MIDI recording software. The AXON AX 100
MKII then behaves like any other external sound module.
The next item is the TUNE BASE. The AXON AX 100 MKII is preset to a reference pitch of 440 Hz, which is
indicated on the display by a "0". If you would like to play together with other, hard-to-tune instruments (such
as the piano), you can adjust your tuning in cent increments.
8
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
The next item to check is the type of instrument used. Press the PARAMETER + button again and GUITAR
NO will appear on the display. Up to 8 presets for different instruments can be stored here.
Press ENTER to open the submenu and select the instrument you will be using from the available instruments:
BASS, GUITAR, VIOLIN and CELLO.
Press PARAMETER + to open the selection menu for the pickup you will be using. MAGNETIC is selected by
default. If you are going to be using an instrument with a piezo pickup, change this setting to PIEZO.
Check the setting by playing the connected guitar. If you hear so-called double triggers (i.e. two notes hit in
rapid succession) even though you have only hit the string once, you should adjust the input sensitivity of the
AXON to your personal playing style and hardware. To do so, press the PARAMETER + button until you reach
the SENSE menu item.
Begin with the low E string and adjust the value at the bottom right of the display using the VALUE +/- buttons.
Use PARAMETER + to move on to the remaining 5 strings.
Finished! We can deal with the other parameters later—the AXON has been preconfigured at the factory to let
you get started with a minimum of hassle.
Editing preset sounds
Ensure that the AXON is in Preset mode (Preset LED lit on the front panel). This is automatically the case
when you switch the device on and none of the other modes (GLOBAL, UTILITY or CHAIN) are selected.
The top half of the display shows the name of the currently active preset, with the number of the preset to the
right.
Use the VALUE +/- buttons or the UP/DOWN buttons of the guitar interface to step through the presets 1-256.
Presets 1-128 are reserved for the user and can be edited. 129-256 are fixed factory presets. By default, these
presets have been copied to the programmable user area (1-128) to ensure that it contains playable parameter settings, but they can be overwritten as needed, of course.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)

Once you have familiarised yourself with them, you can try modifying one of the existing presets:
1.
Use the VALUE +/- buttons to select preset 1, "Grand Piano" (same as factory preset 129). You can also
use the UP/DOWN buttons of the guitar interface to select the preset. Next, press the EDIT button.
2.
Press ENTER to open the AXON's split zone area. Confirm the selected split zone with ENTER. Then,
confirm the selected layer, likewise using the ENTER button.
3.
You can now use the VALUE +/- buttons to select any INSTRUMENT. The instruments are sorted logically according to groups. Using the PARAMETER button, you can move the cursor towards the left to the
group and navigate through it using the VALUE +/- buttons in order to reach the desired sound more
quickly.
4.
Pressing the PARAMETER + button again takes you to additional settings for the preset; these are explained in detail later on in the manual. For example, you can use the VALUE +/- buttons to set the
VOLUME parameter to the desired value.
5.
You may also change the TRANSPOSE setting in the next parameter. This can be useful for a bass
sound, for example. This parameter results in a semitone shift of the note from its standard tuning. Press
the PARAMETER + button and set the value with the VALUE +/- buttons (+12 or -12 raises or lowers the
pitch one octave).
6.
Press the EXIT button three times to access the global preset area. We now want to give our modified
preset a new name by pressing the PARAMETER + button five times, then the ENTER button. The cursor
is now located on the "G" of the old preset name, "Grand Piano".
7.
Use the VALUE +/- buttons to change the letter at the cursor position. Think of a new name for your preset and set the first letter. Use the PARAMETER +/- buttons to move the cursor one position to the left or
right. Repeat the process for the other letters. If the new name is shorter than the old one, delete the remaining letters with the EDIT button.
8.
Press the EXIT button twice to exit preset editing mode. The top half of the AXON display will now be
flashing. This indicates that you have changed the parameters and that you still need to confirm the
changes to store them permanently. Now press the STORE button.
You can now select a slot in which to store the new preset. Either overwrite the preset or store it in any of
the slots within the user range (1-128). Now press the ENTER to copy the preset to the selected location
and store it there.

The operating modes of the AXON AX 100 MKII
The many options of your AXON require a wide range of parameters that you can adjust to suit your requirements. The following explanation of the user interface will help you find your way around quickly.
For a clear overview, the operating functions of your AXON have been organised in four different modes or
sections that can be selected using the buttons on the front panel. Each of these modes (GLOBAL, PRESET,
UTILITY, CHAIN) contain a number of parameters that can be displayed using the PARAMETER +/- buttons
after pressing the appropriate mode button.
Press the PARAMETER + button to switch to the next parameter. PARAMETER - returns you to the previous
parameter. Change the values of the individual parameters using the VALUE +/- buttons, using VALUE + to
raise the value and VALUE - to lower it. The VALUE +/- buttons feature an acceleration function to help ensure
that you don't get a repetitive strain injury. You can accelerate the counting even more by pressing both buttons (+ and -) at the same time while counting up or down.
A number of parameters contain submenus with additional parameters. Dots at the end of the parameter name
indicate the presence of a submenu. To open a submenu, press the ENTER button. Press the PARAMETER
+/- buttons to access the various parameters within the submenu. The EXIT button will return the AXON to the
original parameter. The EXIT button will also return the AXON to its default Preset mode.
Global Mode
The global parameters contain all higher-level parameters related to the MIDI channels, the instrument used,
the reference tuning and input sensitivity of the individual strings. You should check a number of the global
parameters before using your AXON for the first time to ensure its best possible interaction with your instrument.
Preset Mode
All of the parameters that your AXON needs for managing individual presets can be found here. Preset mode
is the most extensive mode, with a wide range of split and effect settings. This is the mode that is active by
default whenever you have not selected one of the other modes.
Utility Mode
This mode contains a wide range of settings for drum sequences. It also contains the functions for loading and
storing settings via MIDI (SysEx), letting you manage and save the parameter settings of your AXON on your
computer. It's easier using the included Editor, by the way. ;-)
Chain Mode
The Chain parameters let you define preset chains for easy access to presets sorted by style for live performances.
CAUTION: For greater ease of use, they are divided up a little differently in the Software Editor. The areas
there are: Global, Presets, Arpeggiator/Sequencer, Chains, CC Defaults, MIDI Mapping and About.

General notes about operating the Editor
In most cases, the functions are identical to operation on the device. However, using a computer gives you
access to additional options.
Global page - Load all settings / Save all settings
Using these buttons, you can save all the device's settings to the hard drive as a SysEx file (Save all settings)
and restore them later (Load all settings). This is useful before a firmware update or can be used for general
backup purposes.
Presets page – Get Preset / Store to
"Get Preset" activates the preset selected in the drop-down menu. "Store to" permanently saves the preset to
one of the first 128 memory positions in the AXON AX 100 MKII. Select the number under which to save the
preset in the drop-down menu to the right of the "Store to" button.
Preset page – Load from Disk / Save to Disk
To save individual presets to the hard drive, use the "Save to Disk" button. This generates a file with the ending .axp, which you can reload to the device using the "Load from Disk" button. This gives you a very convenient way to exchange presets you have created with other AXON users, for example.

Global Mode
Global Parameters
The global parameters contain all higher-level parameters such as information related to the MIDI channels,
the instrument used, the reference tuning and the input sensitivity of the individual strings. A number of settings can be set individually for each instrument that you will be using with the AXON. Check and adapt these
settings as necessary before using it for the first time. This is essential to ensure that the AXON will work optimally with your instrument.
Global mode can be activated by pressing the GLOBAL button on the front panel of your AXON. The state is
signalled by a red LED next to the GLOBAL button.
Basic Channel
Basic MIDI channel (1 – 16) Various options are available for sending the MIDI information generated by the
AXON from the vibrations of your guitar strings to the sound module or MIDI instrument. Ideally, a MIDI channel is assigned to each string (see STRING MODE SEPARATE) This has the advantage of evaluating each
string separately. For example, bending a string affects only that string's channel. Otherwise, bending would
affect the pitches of the other strings being played at the same time, an effect that is generally undesirable.
Use BASIC CHANNEL to specify the first of six MIDI channels. All other channels follow automatically in ascending order. If you select "1", for example, MIDI channels 1 to 6 will be reserved by your AXON. The value
'5' would assign channels 5 to 10, and the value '11' the channels from 11 to 16. '1' is the default value.
18
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Hold Channel
Hold MIDI channel (1 – 16) While BASIC CHANNEL reserves six MIDI channels for normal playing, the
HOLD CHANNEL parameter reserves the first of six additional consecutive MIDI channels for Hold effects
such as SEPARATE, LAYER and ARPEGGIO. It's important to ensure that the Basic and Hold channels do
not overlap. Ensure that at least six MIDI channels are between the Basic and Hold channels. The default
value for this parameter is 11, thus reserving the MIDI channels 11 to 16.
Sequencer Channel (SEQ CHANNEL)
MIDI channel for soundboard drum sequences (1 – 16) A separate MIDI channel is used for drum sequences. Use this parameter to select the channel. Please ensure that the SEQ CHANNEL does not conflict
with the BASIC or HOLD channels and that you reserve a free MIDI channel for the drum sequencer. MIDI
channel 10 is the default setting.
Sequencer MIDI Ports (SEQPORTS)
(MIDI OUT and/or Soundboard) Here, you can select the outputs to which to send the MIDI signal of the
internal drum sequencer. You can choose between the MIDI Out on the rear side of the AXON and/or the
internal soundboard.
Pitchbend Range (PBEND RANGE)
(OFF, 1 – 24) Bending and sliding are techniques frequently used by guitarists. Your AXON uses the MIDI
pitchbend command for these effects. As with a keyboard pitch wheel, the pitch of the last note picked is modified without picking a new note. The value ranges must be adjusted to ensure that the sound module or a
connected MIDI instrument reproduces the pitch changes accurately.
The displayed value indicates the maximum number of semitone steps that can be applied to a pitchbend. Set
this value to 12 (one octave). For bass, we recommend setting the value to 24.
The value OFF disables pitchbend, triggering chromatic semitones when bending or sliding.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
19
Resend Pitchbend Range (SND PBENDRG)
(ON/OFF) If your MIDI instrument supports separate pitchbend settings for each preset, you must set this
parameter to ON. In this case, your AXON will send the required pitchbend settings to the MIDI instrument
after every Program Change command. If your MIDI instrument stores the pitchbend range globally, set this
value to OFF.
Local Mode
Local mode (ON/OFF)
ON: This is the internal default operating mode of your AXON. The string vibrations received via the 13-pin
jack are converted to MIDI signals and sent to the built-in sound module and to the MIDI Out jack. Program
Change commands received via MIDI IN permit programmed AXON presets to be accessed. permitting additional MIDI instruments to be controlled. You should choose this setting if you are not using a sequencer to
control the AXON. That will usually be the case during live performances.
OFF: You can disable local mode if you would like to control the AXON using a sequencer or MIDI recording
software. The integrated sound module of your AXON will now act as a conventional MIDI expander. However,
it will no longer be possible to select AXON presets via MIDI IN. Naturally, you will still be able to select the
presets of your AXON using the operating buttons. All MIDI data generated by your AXON while playing is
available only via MIDI OUT. Connect the MIDI OUT of the sequencer to the MIDI IN of your AXON and activate the echo or monitor function of the sequencer. The sequencer will loop the incoming MIDI data through to
MIDI OUT and send it to the internal sound module. Note that the sequencer is configured such that it transmits all MIDI data on the same channels on which it receives them.
Local mode is always set to ON when switching the AXON on. If you set this parameter to OFF, this setting will
only be retained until you switch the device off.
Caution: This function is not available in the Software Editor, as the Editor functions in LOCAL ON mode only!
Tune Base
(-99 to +99) Unit: cent, corresponds to 1/100 semitone All MIDI notes generated by your AXON are based
on a reference tuning of 440 Hz, plus or minus a deviation determined by this parameter. If you are playing
with musicians using instruments that are difficult to tune, such as a piano, you can adjust your AXON to the
situation. We recommend the following procedure when using a reference frequency other than 440 Hz: start
by carefully tuning the open A string to the reference instrument by ear.
Next, press the ENTER button. "PICK THE OPEN A STRING" will now appear on the display.
20
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Pick the open A string. Your AXON will analyse the pitch and automatically set the tune base parameter to the
correct value. If you already know the exact value, you can enter it manually using the VALUE +/- buttons, of
course. Next, tune the remaining strings of your guitar with the integrated tuner of your AXON. If you are playing alone, set the parameter to 0.
Guitar Number (GUITAR NO)
AX 100 MKII Display
(1 to 8) So that your AXON works optimally with your guitar, you have to configure various basic settings pertaining to sensitivity and other parameters. These settings depend on the type and setup of your guitar. They
can vary widely from one instrument to the next. However, the AXON stores up to eight sets of basic settings,
making it unnecessary to configure the required parameter changes individually every time—simply choose a
guitar preset number with the touch of a button.
Setting up the individual parameters is easy—simply press the ENTER button to step through the parameters
and edit them. Use the PARAMETER +/- buttons to select individual functions. The VALUE +/- buttons adjust
the actual values. Within these basic settings, your AXON provides a VU meter in the first line of the display.
The positions of the bars correspond to the levels of the individual strings, varying depending on how hard you
pick and the sensitivity settings of the individual strings. In the Software Editor, you can select the eight guitar
presets for editing using the tabs. However, for the selection to be lasting, you have to use the "Guitar Number" selection box.
Instrument Type (INPUT TYP)
(GUITAR, BASS, VIOLIN, CELLO) Select the instrument you will be using from the available instruments.
This is especially important for the assignment of the strings to the MIDI channels you specified.
Pickup
(MAGNETIC, PIEZO) Select the pickup system you are using here. MAGNETIC is the default mode, for example when using the AIX 101 guitar interface with its magnetic pickup. The PIEZO setting supports polyphonic piezo pickups. Piezo pickups are designed to reproduce the natural sound of hollow-body instruments
as faithfully as possible and have been engineered especially for use with acoustic guitars. An important ad-
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
21
vantage for guitarists is that piezo pickups, which can be installed invisibly in the bridge of the instrument, can
also be used on instruments with nylon strings such as classical guitars.
Note Off Limit
(2 – 30) Unlike a keyboard, which holds its notes until the key is released, a guitar string will sound until the
note dies out naturally or the string is stopped. The duration of the note depends primarily on the type of guitar,
how it is set up, and the type of strings used. Some guitars therefore sound percussive, while others have
more sustain. This can be represented as an envelope curve in which the volume or amplitude values gradually decline to zero. By specifying a threshold value on this envelope, it becomes possible to control the duration of the note. Selecting a higher value will cause the MIDI Note Off command to be sent sooner, while lower
values will result in greater sustain. The AXON can thus be matched optimally to the characteristics of your
guitar.
Trigger Level
(0 to 9) Use this parameter to specify a threshold at which notes are to be triggered on your MIDI instrument to
suit your playing technique. A low value will ensure that even a weak pick will trigger a "Note On" command.
Conversely, a higher value will require a harder pick. Experiment with the values a bit to find your optimal
setting.
Instrument Tuning (INPUT GUIT.TUNE)
(+/- 3 octaves) Because the AX 100 MKII is capable of transposing the MIDI sound output into any conceivable tuning, it needs to know how the connected instrument is tuned, as many parameters depend on the
"real" tuning of the instrument. Therefore, in this menu item, configure the actual tuning for each string. The
standard tuning is configured at the factory; if this is how your instrument is tuned, you do not have to make
any changes here.
Using the Software Editor, you can load preset tunings and save the ones you have created. This saves a file
with the ending .axt in the tuning directory in the Editor's program folder.
Sensitivity
Input sensitivity for guitar: E6 to E1 or bass: B6 to C1 (8 to 64) Here you can select the individual strings
of your instrument using the PARAMETER +/- buttons and assign suitable values for the input sensitivity. A
higher value means greater sensitivity. Please note that your AXON is very sensitive with regard to distortion—
as are all electronic devices that process audio signals digitally. On the other hand, do not set the values of
your AXON too low. It will usually be necessary to increase the sensitivity for the lighter strings to achieve a
22
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
well-balanced result. When using a bass, the AXON will assume that you are using a six-string bass for reasons of compatibility. If your bass has fewer strings, which will usually be the case, simply skip the parameters
for the nonexistent strings.
The Link button in the Editor links all sliders, allowing you to move them all at once.
Wheel Controller (WHEELCNTRL)
Controller potentiometer on the pickup (ON/OFF) If your pickup does not have a potentiometer, please
specify that here, as otherwise the AXON will not receive the correct values and will function incorrectly. This
will only be the case with retrofitted accessory piezo pickups, however, as the AXON PU 100, AIX 101 and the
103 have such a potentiometer.
Pedal Sensitivity (PEDALSENS)
The AXON is compatible with virtually any expression pedal on the market. However, pedals do vary, and this
menu item lets you set up the AXON AX 100 MKII to suit your pedal. First, select either EXP1 or EXP2 using
the VALUE buttons. Press ENTER to open the submenu. Move the pedal to its minimum position and press
ENTER. Next, move the pedal to its maximum position and press ENTER again. The AXON is now configured
to your pedal.
This function is not available in the Software Editor.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
23
CC Defaults
Controller reset values Using the various control options of the wheel and pick control functions requires a
precise reset of the MIDI controller to its default values (i.e. after a preset change). This is generally the value
0, but there are exceptions. The soundboard expects the value 64(40h) as the default value for the controllers
71-74, as these controllers are used as offset. A wide range of free controllers are available that manufacturers can use as they see fit, so your AXON lets you set default values for all available controllers. Press
ENTER to open the submenu.
The first line displays the controller and its number, the second line contains the default value in hexadecimal
notation. The cursor is initially in the first row while you use the VALUE +/- buttons to display the desired controller. Use the PARAMETER + button to move the cursor to the second row and the VALUE +/- buttons to
change the default value of the displayed controller. The settings will be stored in the AXON's memory. The
table is already filled with default values. All controllers reserved according to the MIDI specification were given
default values. Refer to the manual of your MIDI sound generator to set the value of the controller used to the
value recommended by the manufacturer.
For ease of understanding, we have given this area its own page in the Software Editor:
24
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
MIDI Mapping
Program Change commands Commands received by your AXON on the current Basic Channel can be assigned to any AXON presets using this mapping table. Press the ENTER button.
The first line of the display will show the program number that your AXON is receiving, the second line will
show the associated preset to which you are changing. By default, a Program Change command will select the
AXON preset with the same program number. To change this setting, use the PARAMETER +/- buttons to
switch between the lines and the VALUE +/- buttons to change the values. Your entries will be sent to memory
immediately and do not need to be saved manually. Use the EXIT button to exit this submenu, as always.
This also has its own page in the Editor:

Preset Mode
Preset mode is active by default whenever you have not selected one of the other modes. The device automatically returns to preset mode when exiting another mode. The status is indicated by a lit LED to the left of
the PRESET button on the front panel. The top line of the display shows the preset's name and number; the
bottom line shows a tuner and the basic setting of the instrument used (here, GM1 = guitar with magnetic
pickup, preset number 1).
.
In the Software Editor, the preset area looks like this:
Preset Parameters
The preset parameters contain all of the settings that the AXON needs to manage a preset. A preset is a playing environment that you have defined which contains a wide range of playing and audio property settings that
you can select at any time. You can choose from up to 128 complex programmable presets. The complexity of
your presets is entirely up to you. For example, you can organise the strings of your guitar as 12 completely
different split areas that can be combined freely. Countless effects and playing parameters can be assigned to
each of the splits independently.
Selecting Presets
To navigate the presets, use the VALUE +/- buttons. You can also use the UP/DOWN buttons of the guitar
interface or press the "Get Preset" button in the editor.
26
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Guitar Tuner and Instrument
In its default setting (see Utility Mode, Display), the lower half of the display shows a guitar tuner with which
you can monitor the correct tuning of your instrument. It is important for the guitar to be tuned within certain
tolerances for the AXON to identify MIDI note values correctly. Tune each string until the line is located over
the arrow in the middle of the scale. If the Tune Base parameter is set to 0, the middle arrow corresponds to a
tuning calibration of 440 Hz. If you need to tune to a different reference value than 440 Hz—out of consideration to another musician, for example—you can also tune the AXON to your guitar via Tune Base (see Global
Parameters). The middle position will then correspond to the custom value (assuming you reach an agreement).
The abbreviation at the bottom right shows which instrument, with which pickup, is selected for this preset, and
has the following meaning:
Pickup / Instrument
Guitar
Bass
Violin
Cello
Magnetic
GM
BM
VM
CM
Piezo

Preset Programming
With your AXON in Preset mode, press the EDIT button to program or edit the current preset. The graphic that
now appears at the bottom of the display indicates the current split zone in preset 1, "Grand Piano". This preset has only one playing zone, so the entire graphic is selected.
For a more detailed explanation of split zones, we will be taking a closer look at the split options of your AXON
below. 'Splitting' refers to dividing the playing area of your instrument into two or more independent zones.
Your AXON supports the following split types:
String Split
You can divide the six strings of your instrument into two groups, with a different synthesiser sound for each
group. For example, you can assign a bass guitar sound to the low E and A string, while using an e-piano
sound for the remaining strings. It's entirely up to you where you would like to locate the split.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
27
Fret Split
You can also divide the fingerboard of your guitar into two areas with a different synthesiser sound assigned to
each area, regardless of the string you are currently playing. You can freely choose the fret position for the
split.
Pick Split
It's also possible to divide the area between the bridge and the highest fret—the area in which you normally
pick—into up to three sections. The width of each section is freely customisable. You can thus use completely
different sounds, depending on whether you are picking near the neck, in the middle, or near the bridge.
Split Combinations
These three different split types can be combined freely, giving you up to 12 different split combination options
(2 string * 2 fret * 3 pick split zones). Being able to choose the split points freely within these combinations
opens a whole range of possibilities.
Selecting the Split Zones
Ensure that the AXON is in Preset mode (Preset LED lit on the front panel) and select preset 118, MS Synth.
Then, press the EDIT button on the front panel. A small graphic will appear on the lower half of the display
symbolising the playing area of your guitar.
The triangle at the right side represents the head of your guitar. The three rounded symbols on the far left
stand for three pick splits; these can be split into six parts for possible string splits. The area between the pick
splits and the head (i.e. the neck) can also be divided horizontally and vertically into four sections corresponding to possible string splits and fret splits. With this graphic, every possible split zone can be represented in the
form of bars (selected) or inverted display (not selected). The simplest version is when the preset that you are
currently editing does not involve any splits at all. In that case, the bar will cover the entire playing area. If you
are working on a preset with a simple string split, the bar will fill either the upper or lower half, depending on
the currently active split zone.
Preset 118 has a total of four split zones. The fretboard is split at fret 9 (fret split), and the strings are likewise
split into two areas (E, A, d and g, b, e1). In the top graphic, the split zone is selected on strings g, b, e1 and
frets 1 – 8; you can then edit it further by pressing the ENTER button.
28
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Press the VALUE +/- buttons to step through all split zones. Depending on the complexity of the preset, you
can assign up to 12 different split zones this way. At this point, try once again to analyse the types of splits
combined in your selected preset. While this may seem difficult at the moment, you will soon get used to the
split zone display. These are explained again in detail in the next chapter. Press the EXIT button to return to
normal playing mode.
Changing the Split Parameters
Setting Up Split Zones
Select a split zone as described in the previous section and press the ENTER button. SLCT will be flashing to
the left of the graphic.
Your AXON is now waiting for you to either accept the current split zone by pressing the ENTER button or
define your own splits. Except for the ENTER and EXIT buttons, all of the buttons are now used to set up split
zones. For a start, we will set up a simple string split, resulting in a continuous bar in the upper part of the
playing area (lower strings). Press the following buttons: PRESET, STORE, EDIT, VALUE – and VALUE +.
Each button represents a section that can be enabled by pressing it once. Pressing the button a second time
will disable the section. Enable all of the sections for the upper playing zone and disable them for the lower
zone.
Additional split options:
Simple fret split
Pick split
Combination of string, fret and pick split

Split in the Software Editor
A split is triggered via the "+" button in the split row:
The following dialogue is displayed. Select the desired split type here. Though this can be one split, you can
also combine multiple splittings:
For example, if a simple string split is selected, this is displayed as follows:
The settings now apply only to the three low strings. Switching to Split 2 inverts the display and the settings
apply to the three high strings.
To delete a split point, use the "-" button. This will rejoin the split zone with its neighbour.
If you click the " – " button in an active split (in this case Split 1), you can rejoin the separated playing zones
back into this split. To do so, simply enable the corresponding tick box and click "OK".
30
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
EDIT LAYER
Within a split zone, you can create additional layers. This allows you to play multiple instruments at the same
time or, in addition to the internal sounds, also activate external sound generators with various Program
Change commands and Controller data. You can create up to four layers per split zone, but the total number
of layers in a preset is limited to 12. You also have to ensure that the MIDI channels you are using do not
overlap. Because the MIDI standard only provides for 16 channels, you cannot address the internal soundboard using more than two layers at the same time while in Separate Mode (see page: 38).
By pressing PARAMETER +, you can define the number of layers for the selected split zone using the +/buttons.
In the Editor, the "+" and "-" buttons in the layer row are used for this purpose.
Press the PARAMETER – button to return to the EDIT LAYER menu. Now, press the ENTER button. We can
now set a number of sound properties for our layer in the split using the PARAMETER +/- buttons:
Select Instrument
Determine the sounds for the layer in the split zone here. The available sounds are sorted into groups. The
group is at the left, the instrument at the right. Using the VALUE +/- buttons, you can navigate through the
selection, and you can toggle between group and instrument using the PARAMETER +/- buttons.
Note: depending on your Utility/Soundnames setting (GM, NUM or WXT) you may see numbers here instead
of names. This also applies to the view in the Software Editor.
There, you also have the option of directly typing in the digits for the Program Change number and the corresponding Bank Select numbers.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
31
Program Change send (PROGRAM SEND)
(ON, OFF) Sometimes, you may not want the AXON to send any Program Change commands, for example
when using it together with a Software Sequencer. You can disable this function here. To do so you have to
switch off the Program button in the Editor.
MIDI Output Channel
MIDI channels (B/H, 1 – 16) Here define the channels on which the MIDI information is to be sent. As mentioned above, it is important that the channels used on the same output port of the various layers do not overlap. B/H stands for Basic/Hold Channel. The globally configured channels are used. Note that the configured
String Mode has an effect on the MIDI channels. Refer also to page 38.
So that you not lose track of what you are doing, the Editor (to the left of the fretboard on the Presets page)
shows the currently used channels for all 6 strings.
As a general reference for everything to do with MIDI, we recommend the Internet resource Wikipedia—we
could not offer a better description than that found there:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_Instrument_Digital_Interface
MIDI Output Ports
(MIDIOUT, SOUNDBOARD, MIDIOUT+SB, NONE) In this menu item, define the output ports to be used for
the layer.
Volume
(OFF, 0 – 127) Each layer in the split can be assigned a separate volume, which you can configure here. Use
the +/ - Value buttons to set the volume to the desired level. In the "OFF" position, the AXON sends no volume
information whatsoever. In the Editor, the Volume button serves this function.
32
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Transpose
(-36 to +36) Use this parameter to transpose the notes played in semitone steps. This lets you play notes on
your MIDI instrument that are outside the normal range of your guitar. For our example, enter a value of -12 (-1
octave) to put the bass in its characteristic range.
Quantize
(AUTO, OFF, ON, TRIGGER) This parameter determines whether pitch changes within the set pitchbend
range will be carried out continuously or stepwise (quantised):
Auto: If more than one note is played, pitchbend quantisation is enabled automatically. Chords are thus
played precisely (without pitchbend), while pitchbend quantisation is disabled for single-note solos with bending, hammer-on, sliding and similar techniques.
Off: No quantisation, continuous pitchbend. All pitch changes (bends, hammer-ons and other techniques) are
followed as closely as possible (also see Global Parameters: Pitchbend Range).
On: Quantisation with pitchbend in steps. Increases in pitch are NOT followed with pitchbend until the next
semitone is reached, at which point the new pitch value is used. Continuous bends and other techniques are
not reproduced as expected. This setting is advantageous when playing chords exclusively, as minor changes
in pitch due to varying pressure on the strings no longer have any effect.
Trigger: Quantisation through new Note On command. This value disables pitchbend completely, triggering
chromatic semitones when bending or sliding. It corresponds exactly to the global setting PBEND RANGE:
OFF (see Global Parameters) but only affects the current split zone. This setting is especially suited to organ
or piano sounds, which would otherwise sound extremely unnatural. You can also set the Quantize parameter
to AUTO for our example. It then only applies to the bass split, permitting bending there while the piano only
triggers chromatic halftones.
Panorama (PAN POS)
(OFF, L15-L1, MID, R1-R15) This parameter shifts the selected sound of your MIDI instrument in the stereo
image. The values L15-L1 indicate that the current sound will be shifted more toward the left channel, while the
values R1-R15 would result in a shift toward the right channel. The value MID corresponds to the middle position. To disable the panorama function, select "OFF".
Pan Spread
(-15 to +15) Use this parameter to spread the positions of individual sounds across the panorama to ensure
that not all (up to six) sounds appear in the stereo position you selected with the PAN POS parameter. Set the
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
33
PAN POS value to MID (middle position), for example. Play your guitar and vary the PAN SPREAD value.
Please note that your MIDI instrument must support panorama information. Please refer to the manual of your
MIDI instrument for more information.
+15: low notes to the left, high notes to the left in the panorama
-15: low notes to the left, high notes to the right in the panorama
Reverb
(OFF, 0 to 127) Use this parameter to set the degree of reverb for the sound used. Increasing the value increases the amount of reverb added to the original sound. You can switch off this controller; to do so, select
the value "OFF". You can disable this function in the Editor using the Reverb switch.
Chorus
(OFF, 0-127) You can adjust the strength of the effect using this parameter. Increasing the value will make the
effect that your MIDI instrument adds to the original sound more pronounced. The "OFF" position shuts off the
Controller data.
Attack Time
Shorten/lengthen the attack time (OFF, 0-127) Attack time refers to the time from the start of a sound to the
point at which it reaches its maximum volume. The effect of this parameter is strongly dependent on the sound
being used. If you have selected a percussive instrument such as a piano, shortening the attack time will not
be possible, as it is already minimal. This parameter is especially useful for sounds that develop slowly, such
as pad sounds. A value of 64 means no change from the sound generator's default attack time. Values less
than 64 shorten this time, while larger values lengthen it.
Velocity Sensitivity (VEL SENSE)
(0-127) You can reduce the dynamic range of your MIDI instrument by reducing the value of this parameter. In
an extreme case, a value of 0 will cause all sounds from the MIDI instrument to be played at the same volume,
regardless of the velocity with which they are played. The value 127 will result in the greatest possible dynamic
range.
34
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Velocity Offset (VEL OFFSET)
(-64 to +64) If the restricted dynamic range (see VEL SENSE) of your MIDI instrument has caused it to become too loud or soft, use this parameter to raise or lower the overall volume. In the Software Editor, a graphic
lets you configure this setting very easily.
If Velocity Sensitivity is set to 0 and Velocity Offset is set to –64 at the same time, no more MIDI notes are
sent. In the Editor, the "Send Notes" button has this purpose. This can be useful if using the AXON to control a
non-sound generator (e.g. effects unit, mixer etc.) using only MIDI controllers.
Pick Control
(NO CONTROLLER, CONTRLxxx) This submenu lets you associate your current sound with one of the many
MIDI controllers. This can be used to control effects thanks to the AXON's ability to recognise your picking
position. For example, if you set the value to Controller 1 (Modulation Wheel), you can simulate the effect of a
keyboard modulation wheel with your picking position.
Other interesting effects can be achieved with CTRL 74 (Filter) or CTRL 10 (Pan), for example. Press the
ENTER button and use the +/- Value buttons to choose a suitable controller.
The function of the controller will be displayed in plain text. A horizontal line will appear for non-specified controllers. Use the following parameters to specify the value range for which the controller is suited. The effective
range of the controller is restricted to one pick split zone (Your AXON supports up to three pick zones, for
which you can theoretically use three different pick controllers). Generally, you will not use additional pick splits
for a pick control effect. You should therefore set both preset parameters PICKSPLIT1 and PICKSPLIT2 to
0—otherwise the entire picking area from the bridge to the neck will not be available, but only the section
within the pick split zone.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
35
Pick Control Value 1 (PICK VAL1)
(0-127) Once you have associated the split zone with a MIDI controller via PICK CONTRL, use this parameter
to set the starting value for the controller. Moving your picking position from the bridge toward the neck will
cause the value sent to the MIDI controller to continuously move toward the value set for PICK VAL2.
Pick Control Value 2 (PICK VAL2)
(0-127) Once you have associated the split zone with a MIDI controller via PICK CONTRL, use this parameter
to set the ending value for the controller. Moving your picking position from the neck toward the bridge will
cause the value sent to the MIDI controller to continuously move toward the value set for PICK VAL1.
String instruments
If you have selected a string instrument such as violin or cello in a preset, the Pick Control menu item changes
to DynControl (Dynamic Control) and Aftertouch.
Because you can play louder with a bow (unlike when playing a guitar), you can use DynControl / Aftertouch to
convert the player's dynamics into MIDI information.
36
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Changing parameters shared by split zones
Until now, the preset parameters pertained solely to individual layers in the split zones. A preset also consists
of higher-level parameters used to manage split zones and describe shared characteristics. The transitions or
borders between the individual split types are also defined here. To access this level, press the EDIT button
while in Preset mode (PRESET LED on). If you are still in the split zone level, simply press the EXIT button
twice. Use the PARAMETER +/- buttons to select the following parameters and modify them with the VALUE
+/- buttons:
String Split
(1-5) When configuring a string split, use this parameter to specify the first string of the lower string segment,
i.e. the start of the lower playing zone. The number refers to the string, with the number 1 being the high E
string. For example, if you se the string split to 4, the two bass strings (5 and 6) will belong to the upper and
the lower four strings (1-4) to the lower split zone.
Fret Split
(0-23) If you are using a fret split in your preset, use this parameter to specify the first fret of the left split segment, i.e. the left playing zone as seen on the graphic of the AXON. The number refers to the fret numbers,
with fret 0 being the open string. For example, if you set the fret split to 4, the open strings and frets 1 through
3 will be assigned to the right split zone, while frets 4 and up will belong to the left split zone.
Pick Split 1 and 2
(0-99) If you are using pick split options in your preset, these parameters determine the width of the individual
picking zones between the bridge and neck. The picking area is divided into 100 units: 0 is the bridge, and 99
corresponds to the start of the fingerboard. If you have divided this area into two zones, the parameter in PICK
SPLIT 1 will indicate the start of the right picking zone. For example, if you enter 50, the picking area will be
divided into two equally large zones. To divide the picking area into 3 zones, specify a value for the start of the
third zone in PICK SPLIT 2. For three equally large zones, set the value for PICK SPLIT 1 to 33 and the value
for PICK SPLIT 2 to 66.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
37
In the Software Editor, you can use sliders to adjust the split points, which are graphically illustrated.
Preset Name
Be sure to give presets you have created a descriptive name to make them easier to find. The name may
contain up to 12 characters. Press ENTER to start editing a name. The cursor will now move to the first letter,
which you can change using the VALUE +/- buttons.
Upper and lower-case letters are supported, as are special characters. Use the PARAMETER + button to
move the cursor to the next letter. The PARAMETER - button moves the cursor back by one place. A number
of buttons on the front panel of the AXON have special functions during the editing process:
The GLOBAL button switches the current lower-case letter to upper case.
The UTILITY button switches the current upper-case letter to lower case.
The CHAIN button switches the current letter to the first available special character, "!".
The PRESET button replaces the current letter with a space.
The STORE button has an insert function, moving all characters to the right of the current cursor position one
place to the right. The last character will be removed or overwritten.
The EDIT button has a delete function, removing the character at the cursor position and moving all following
characters one place to the left. A space is inserted as the last character.
Press the EXIT button to exit the Text Editor.
Guitar No.
(GLOBAL, 1 – 8) Here, you can define which preset to use for the currently used instrument. The GLOBAL
value always uses the default configured in the GLOBAL menu.
String Mode
(COM, SEP) String Mode determines how the strings of your guitar are assigned to the MIDI basic channel
(see Global Parameters):
38
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Common Mode (COM) In Common mode, all of the strings of your guitar are assigned to the MIDI basic
channel. To prevent conflicts with notes still sounding on the same channel, no pitchbend information is sent
when more than one note is being played in this mode. Solo playing is therefore possible with some restrictions. Use this mode if your MIDI instrument can only receive on one MIDI channel. Also, not all sequencer
programs support recording multiple channels at the same time. You should also select this mode in this case.
Separate Mode (SEP) In Separate mode, a separate MIDI channel is reserved for each string of your guitar
(see Global Parameters). This mode provides the greatest possible flexibility. Pitchbend effects such as bending, hammer-on and sliding only affect the channel of the string being played. These techniques can thus be
applied without restrictions. Virtually all current MIDI instruments support multiple channels, so choose this
mode whenever possible.
Hold Mode (HOLDMD)
(COMMON, SEP, LAYER, ARPEG, CNTRL, STACK) A variety of effects are available while playing that can
be triggered by pressing the hold switch. Your AXON supports five different Hold modes:
•
Common: A chord played previously will be played by the MIDI instrument until the hold switch is released. Refer also to page 39.
•
Separate: You can add a pad sound to accompany your solos, for example. Refer also to page 39.
•
Layer: This operating mode lets you combine two presets—in other words, you can play two presets at
the same time. Refer also to page 41.
•
Arpeggiator: This operating mode provides a powerful arpeggiator with which you can virtually accompany yourself. Refer also to page 41.
•
Control: Here you have the option of associating the hold switch with any MIDI controller. Refer also to
page 45.
•
Stack: The effect is the same as in the LAYER hold mode. The only difference is that the hold switch
does not have to be explicitly pressed for this mode. Refer also to page 46.
Common (COM)
No further MIDI data is sent while the hold switch is being pressed. A chord played previously will be played by
the MIDI instrument until the hold switch is released. This also realises a bypass function of sorts—your AXON
will not send any additional MIDI data as long as the hold switch is being pressed while in this mode.
Separate (SEP)
In Separate mode, the MIDI channels defined in Hold Channel (see Global Parameters) are additionally available. You can thus add a pad sound to your solos to back yourself. Select a suitable preset for the backing in
the submenu (ENTER). Play a chord while pressing the hold switch and release the hold switch. The chord will
now be played continuously and you can continue playing on the normal channels. When you press the hold
switch again, all sounds being played at that moment will be stopped and you can play another chord. To
return to normal mode, press the hold switch briefly and release it.
The following parameters can be set in the submenu:
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
39
Hold Preset
(1 – 256) Using the VALUE +/- buttons, choose the preset to be played on the additional channels while the
hold switch is pressed.
Volume
(OFF, 0 – 127) You have the option of reducing the volume of the hold preset to ensure a correct balance
between the main and hold preset. This will not change the settings of the hold preset itself.
Sequencer Pattern (SEQ PATTERN)
(OFF, 1 – 32) AXON AX 100 MKII users can play a sequencer pattern (drum sequence) parallel to the hold
preset (see UTILITY MODE, EDIT SEQUENCE). The drum sequence will be started on a separate MIDI
channel as soon as your press the hold switch. The pattern will continue to repeat until you press the hold
switch briefly twice (double-click). Enter the pattern number 1-32 of the sequencer pattern to be played when
the pedal is pressed, or set the parameter to OFF.
Sequencer Track (SEQ TRACK)
(OFF, 1 – 8) You can also play a complex track sequence (see UTILITY MODE, EDIT SEQUENCE) parallel to
the hold preset instead of a pattern sequence. The track sequence (drum sequence) will be started on a separate MIDI channel as soon as your press the hold switch. The track sequence can be cancelled by pressing
the hold switch briefly twice. Otherwise, it will continue playing until its defined end. Enter the track number 1-8
of the track sequence to be played when the pedal is pressed, or set the parameter to OFF. Please note that
you can only use one of the sequencer types—in other words, if you intend to use a track sequence, the SEQ
PATTERN parameter must be set to OFF.
Sequencer Tempo (SEQ TEMPO)
(EXT, 41 – 240) The tempo of the sequence can be synchronised externally using the MIDI Clock (EXT/MIDI
IN) or internally by specifying a BPM (beats per minute) value between 41 (very slow) and 240 (very fast). In
case of external synchronisation (by a MIDI keyboard or MIDI drums, for example), output does not start until
MIDI Start/Sync commands have been received.
40
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Layer
This operating mode lets you combine two presets—in other words, you can play two presets at the same
time. This can be useful for realising especially rich solo or ensemble sounds. Select a suitable preset for the
hold channels in the submenu (ENTER). This preset will be played together with the normal preset whenever
you press the hold switch. After pressing the ENTER button, the submenu will let you set the same parameters
as in Separate mode: PRESET, SEQ PATTERN, SEQ TRACK and SEQ TEMPO.
Arpeggiator (ARPEG)
This operating mode provides a powerful arpeggiator with which you can virtually accompany yourself. Unlike
SEP mode, which only lets you back yourself with held chords, this mode lets you use more complex backing
structures. The notes you play with the hold switch pressed are collected in a loop and the current content of
the loop is played on the hold channels. The arpeggio capture ends when you release the hold switch. When
playing new notes, the captured arpeggio will play endlessly in the background on the hold channels, otherwise the arpeggio will be stopped. It is thus possible to press the hold switch again and "feed" the current
arpeggio new notes without interruption to realise a change in harmony, for example. To stop an arpeggio,
simply press the hold switch briefly without playing a note. The parameter settings of the arpeggiator determine how the individual notes will be played back. Not only is it possible to manipulate the sequence of the
notes, they can also cover several octaves, for example. Perhaps the most interesting property of the arpeggiator is the rhythmic quantisation of the playback loop with a freely programmable rhythm pattern.
Press ENTER to open the Arpeggiator submenu.
Hold Preset
(1 – 256) Using the VALUE +/- buttons, choose the preset with the audio properties to apply to the arpeggio
while the hold switch is pressed.
Tempo
Arpeggiator tempo (EXT, 41 – 240) The tempo of the arpeggio can be synchronised externally using the
MIDI Clock (EXT/MIDI IN) or internally by specifying a BPM (beats per minute) value between 41 (very slow)
and 240 (very fast). In case of external synchronisation (by a MIDI keyboard or MIDI drums, for example),
output does not start until MIDI Start/Sync commands have been received.
NOTE: The tempo selected here also applies to the sequencer!
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
41
Length (ARP. LENGTH)
Arpeggiator length (1 – 32) This parameter specifies the maximum number of notes in the arpeggio. While
capturing, the content of the arpeggio buffer is constantly output in a loop. Every note you play lengthens the
loop until you reach the value set in ARP. LENGTH. If you continue playing, the oldest notes of the loop will be
replaced. An arpeggio loop can contain a maximum of 32 notes.
Scan
(Assign, Reverse, Recycle, Up, Down, Up/Down, Random) Several functions are available for playing an
arpeggio loop:
In the ASSIGN position, the notes are played in the order in which they were captured.
The REVERSE position acts as a stack and plays the notes back in reverse order.
RECYCLE starts by playing the notes in their original order (like ASSIGN). When the end of the loop has been
reached, the notes are played back in reverse order (like REVERSE). This sequence repeats once it has
reached the beginning.
In UP mode, the captured notes are played sorted according to pitch in ascending order, in DOWN mode they
are played in descending order.
UP/DOWN mode combines these two modes.
Finally, RANDOM plays the captured notes back in random order.
Pattern (PATRN)
(1/16thSt ... USER#1...16) Using this parameter, you can apply rhythmic playback patterns to the arpeggio
loop. The arpeggio will be quantised rhythmically according to the pattern:
1/16thSt: Classic arpeggio. Returns the captured notes in a 1/16 staccato.
1/16thLg: 1/16 notes as above, but legato.
1/8thSt: Arpeggio with moderate tempo. Returns the captured notes in a 1/8 staccato.
1/8thLg: 1/8 notes as above, but legato.
1/4thSt: Slow arpeggio. Returns the captured notes in a 1/4 staccato.
1/4thLg: 1/4 notes as above, but legato.
1/2th: Very slow arpeggio with half notes (more precisely: 1/4 note values with 1/4 rests).
1/8Trpl: Arpeggio with moderate tempo. Returns the captured notes as 1/8 triplets.
The patterns BLUES 1 to HOUSE contain rhythmic styles and grooves as factory presets for interesting
groove effects:
BLUES 1: Blues rhythm. Especially suitable for bass backing lines.
BLUES 2: Variation of BLUES 1 pattern.
42
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
BOOGI 1: Boogie groove. Especially suitable for bass backing.
BOOGI 2: Variation of the BOOGI 1 pattern.
DISCO 1: Disco groove. Especially suitable for bass backing.
DISCO 2: Additional DISCO variation.
ROCK: Rock groove for bass backing.
HOUSE: House rhythm. Well-suited for organ riffs.
You can also apply one of 16 user-defined rhythm patterns to arpeggios with USER#1 to USER#16. Select
one of the USER patterns and press the ENTER button. The Pattern Editor will appear on the display which
you can use to enter the time values for the arpeggio notes.
Use the PARAMETER +/- buttons to move the cursor on the pattern buffer grid. Set the time value at the cursor location with the VALUE +/- buttons. A "<" at this point marks the end of the pattern. The pattern is continuously repeated between the start and end point and controls the output of the arpeggio note values. A
pattern can use a maximum of eight different note value symbols at the same time (no restriction applies when
using the Computer Editor). The LOOP symbol "<" is not affected by this. A number of buttons on the front
panel of the AXON have special functions during the editing process:
The STORE button has an insert function, moving the pattern one place to the right from the current cursor
position. The last symbol at the end of the pattern will be removed or overwritten.
The EDIT button has a delete function, removing the symbol at the cursor position and moving all following
symbols one place to the left. A loop symbol "<" is inserted at the far right.
Press the EXIT button to exit the Pattern Editor.
Display of note values
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
43
Programming a pattern is far more convenient in the Software Editor. Under Arpeggiator/Sequencer, the upper area contains a graphic illustration of the 16 possible steps. For each step, you can now select the desired
note or rest from the drop-down menu. You can also insert notes using the right arrow symbol, which pushes
all the notes after it one step to the right. The left arrow symbol deletes the selected step, and all the notes
after it move to the left.
You can save your own pattern to one of the 16 user memory positions using the "Store to" button.
Sync
(ON, OFF) If you played fewer notes while ON than specified in LENGTH, the pattern will repeat from the
beginning after the last captured note and before the start of the next note value.
Octaves
(1 – 4) Here you can determine whether the arpeggio is to be repeated in the next octave position after the
loop completes. For example, if you enter a "2" here, the arpeggio will be played first in the normal, then in the
next higher octave position. The maximum value is 4 octaves. Value 1 plays the arpeggio only at the pitch at
which it was recorded.
44
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Repeats
(1 – 32) Use this value to repeat the individual notes of the arpeggio. If this parameter is set to "1", each note
will be played once only. Higher values cause the note to be repeated accordingly. Each note can be played
up to 32 times.
Velocity
(OFF, 0 – 127) If this value is set to OFF, the arpeggio will be played back with velocity values as played on
the guitar. You can assign a fixed value for the dynamics of the notes by specifying a value between 0 (soft)
and 127 (loud).
Sequencer Pattern (SEQ PATTERN)
(see page 40)
Sequencer Track (SEQ TRACK)
(see page 40)
Editing HOLD Presets
You have the option of branching directly to the parameter settings of the hold presets while editing HOLDMD:
SEP..., HOLDMD: LAYER... and HOLDMD: ARPEG.... Press the EDIT button when the hold preset is displayed. The first line will display the text 'HD: <Presetname>' and all parameters will be editable as usual.
Press the EXIT button to return to your starting point. The hold preset name will flash whenever a parameter
has been edited but not saved. The edited hold preset can be stored under any preset number using the
STORE button.
Control (CNTRL)
In this operating mode, you have the option of associating the hold switch with any MIDI controller. When the
hold switch is pressed, the specified controller is output with the maximum value 127 (7Fh). As soon as you
release the hold switch, the controller is reset to 0. Suitable controllers include Damper Pedal On/Off (64) and
Portamento (65). Press the ENTER button to open the submenu and set the values for the following parameters.
Holdcontrol
(Controller #0 – #119) Select the MIDI controller that is to be set to its maximum value of 127 when the hold
switch is pressed. The function of the controller will be shown in plain text on the display of your AXON.

Tempo (SEQ TEMPO)
(see page 40)
Stack
The effect is the same as in the LAYER hold mode. The only difference is that the hold switch does not have
to be explicitly pressed for this mode. The layer effect is thus continuously available. Otherwise, the same
parameters are available as in LAYER mode. (also see LAYER...)
Wheel Controller (WHEELCNTL)
WHEEL CONTROLLER (AIX, EXP1, EXP2) Your AXON supports up to three different wheel controllers at the
same time:
•
AIX (in the Editor: "Pickup") is the wheel on the interface PU 100, AIX 101/103
•
EXP1 and EXP2 are expression pedals that can be connected to the rear panel of the AXON.
Select the wheel that you would like to associate with a MIDI controller with the VALUE +/- buttons and press
ENTER. The first line of the display shows the currently selected wheel, the second indicates the controller to
be associated with the wheel.
Use the VALUE +/- buttons to select the correct controller type. The name of the controller will be displayed in
plain text. Controllers that do not comply with the MIDI specification are shown as "-------- ". The "NO
CONTROLLER" setting will result in the wheel not being associated with a controller and thus being without an
effect. This setting is useful for controlling a running arpeggio without affecting the main preset. Set up the
preset used by the arpeggio so that the wheel at the AIX 101 / 103 interface affects a filter controller (#74). For
the main preset, select "NO CONTROLLER" instead of "VOLUME 7". Now you can control the running arpeggio continuously with the filter effect without affecting the volume of the main preset. Press the EXIT button to
return to the main menu.
46
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Non Registered Parameter Number / Registered Parameter Number (NRPN/RPN)
(NONE, NRPN, RPN) Many synthesiser manufacturers support the modification of sound properties via socalled NRPN (non-registered parameter number) and RPN (registered parameter number) numbers. RPNs are
defined in the MIDI specification; NRPNs are manufacturer-specific. For more information on NRPNs, please
refer to the manual of the MIDI output device.
The approach is the same for both types: a system parameter is set with the associated NRPN-LSB and MSB
or RPN-LSB and MSB controllers that can be modified subsequently with controller #6 (DATA ENTRY MSB)
or controller #38 (DATA ENTRY LSB).
The following is an example of such an application with your AXON: Let's assume you have read in the manual of your synthesiser that the manufacturer supports filter control via the NRPNs MSB=01h and LSB=21h.
Select "NRPN/RPN", then "NRPN" with the VALUE +/- buttons, then press the ENTER button. The first line of
the display will once again indicate whether your are currently editing NRPNs or RPNs. The second line shows
the MSB and LSB values. The cursor will initially be positioned over the MSB field. Use the VALUE +/- buttons
to enter the value 01h. Use the parameter buttons to switch to the right to the LSB field and enter the value
21h. You have now set up the NRPN and specified that controller #6 (or #38) can be applied to a filter. Pick
control and the three possible wheels are now available as sources for the controller #6/#38. If you specify the
wheel of the AIX 101 / 103 interface for the controller #6 (#38), you can now use it to affect the current sound
of your synthesiser. Press EXIT to leave the submenu.
Please see page 64 for the NRPN controllers of the internal soundboard.
Note: We would advise less-experienced users against using the RPN controllers, as this may affect pitchbend
sensitivity and tuning in such a way that your AXON will play incorrect notes. And another note for insiders:
Normally, the underlying NRPN or RPN controller should be reset to NULL (7fh) after making changes with the
DATA ENTRY controller. The DATA ENTRY controller will then no longer have an effect. Your AXON does not
do this, as it would result in an enormous increase in MIDI data. These controllers are reset to NULL when
changing presets or changes to the NRPN/RPN itself, however.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
47
Finger Pick
(OFF, ON) The pitch recognition of the AXON is best suited for use with a pick. You can also get good results
with finger picking, however. Simply switch this parameter to "ON". The pick split and pick control functions will
no longer be available in this case. Ensure that the current preset does not use a pick split, or that the pick
controller is disabled (NO CONTROLLER).
MIDI Tuning
Select the tuning of the MIDI output here. Because the AXON knows the notes that are picked, it can also
transpose them. It supports pitch changes of up to +/- 3 octaves, which can be set separately for each string.
Using the VALUE +/- buttons, you can configure the desired pitch of the open string; press PARAMETER + to
move on to the next strength.
The Software Editor also allows you to load alternative standard tunings such as Drop D, Open A, etc. directly
from a selection menu and to save your own creations.
48
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Chain Mode
It is likely that you will want to change your programmed presets frequently when performing live. The Chain
mode of your AXON lets you program chains of presets that you can then call up easily in the required order.
Up to 32 Chain presets are supported, each with up to 32 preset steps. You can then step through the Chain
presets or the individual preset steps with the UP/DOWN buttons of your guitar interface, or use a footswitch to
step through the individual steps of a chain only.Connect the footswitch to the socket marked "Chain" on the
rear panel of the AXON. A single click will move forward one step, while a double-click will go back one step in
the chain. You can thus navigate all Chain presets and steps from your guitar using a combination of footswitch and UP/DOWN buttons.
Setting Up Chain Presets
Press the CHAIN button on the front panel of your AXON and select Chain preset 1-32 with the VALUE +/buttons. The top line of the display shows the name (here, No Name 1) and, next to it, the chain storage position (here, 1). The bottom line shows the preset on the left and, on the right, the corresponding step within the
chain (here, likewise 1).
Press the EDIT button to start programming the chain. The following parameters can be accessed using the
PARAMETER +/- buttons.
Chain Preset Name
(max. 12 characters)
Give the Chain preset a descriptive name (e.g. the name of a song) here for easy orientation later. Press the
ENTER button and select the individual letters with the VALUE +/- buttons. The PARAMETER +/- buttons will
take you directly to the first and last characters. Press EXIT to exit the naming submenu. As in all text-related
functions, the special buttons (A-Z, a-z, !-9, Space, Insert, Delete) are also available here.
Preset
(1-256)
Use the VALUE +/- buttons to assign the number of the preset to be used for the current step. Confirm the
selected preset number with ENTER. This will automatically take you to the next step.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
49
Step
(1-32)
Use the VALUE +/- buttons to select the current step within the chain. The preset assigned to the step is
shown at the left. To insert a preset step into an existing chain, simply press STORE at the insertion point.
This will insert a further step into the chain and move all subsequent steps to the rear by one step. You can
now specify the program or preset number for the step. By default, the inserted step has the same values as
the previous step in this location. You can also delete existing preset steps from the chain. Select the number
of the step you would like to delete and press the EDIT button. The current step will be removed and all following steps will be moved forward.
Storing Chain Presets
Press the EXIT button to exit Chain mode. Whenever you edit any values, a line of the display will flash to
indicate that the changes have not been saved. Press the STORE button. Choose the location (1-32) at which
you would like to store the changes. Pressing the ENTER button will save the changes to the current, edited
location. You can choose a different location, however. In this way you can copy Chain presets in which you
only intend to make minor changes. To exit without saving your changes, simply press the EXIT button.
This programming step is also much easier in the Software Editor, due to the more clearly arranged display:
50
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Utility Mode
Utility mode can be activated by pressing the UTILITY button on the front panel of your AXON. The state is
signalled by a lit LED next to the UTILITY button. A number of settings for the display of your AXON can be
configured using the Utility parameters. It also contains the functions for loading and storing settings via MIDI
(SysEx), letting you manage and save the parameter settings of your AXON on your computer. These functions are more convenient in the Editor, however. The Editor does not have a special Utility page, as the functions either do not exist in the Editor, are located on the Global page or fill their own page.
Display
Utility for display (TUNING, LEVEL) You can decide which utility is to continuously appear on the bottom half
of the display:
Tuning: If you set the display parameter to this value, your AXON will show a guitar tuner on the lower half of
the display that you can use to monitor the correct tuning of your instrument while playing. Tune each string
until the line is located over the arrow in the middle of the scale. If the Tune Base parameter is set to 0, the
middle arrow corresponds to a tuning calibration of 440 Hz.
Level: Selecting this value will replace the tuner on the bottom half of the display with a VU (LEVEL) meter.
The positions of the bars correspond to the levels of the individual strings. These levels let you monitor the
dynamics of the played strings.
In the Editor, you cannot change this setting.
Sound names
Display type for sound names (NUM, GM, WXT) The AXON can display the sound presets or timbres used
in a variety of ways.
NUM
All sounds or timbres are managed numerically in the form of a program number and a MIDI bank. A MIDI
bank can contain up to 128 program numbers. By splitting the MIDI bank into an MSB (Most Significant Byte)
and LSB (Least Significant Byte) section, it becomes possible to address up to 128 x 128 MIDI banks. Use this
setting if your sound module does not support the GM (General MIDI) standard.
GM
The sounds or timbres are managed according to the GM (General MIDI) standard. The names of the timbres
are shown in plain text on the display. As the GM standard only features 128 timbres, some manufacturers of
GM-capable sound modules have implemented a number of kits that can be selected via MIDI banks. The
AXON splits the MIDI bank into an MSB (Most Significant Byte) and LSB (Least Significant Byte) section,
making it possible to address up to 128 x 128 GM kits. Use this setting if your sound module supports GM.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
51
WXT
The sounds or timbres are displayed and selected according to the names of the internal WAVE XTABLE
soundboard. This soundboard contains 492 sounds and 12 drumkits. The sounds are sorted into 21 groups for
easier orientation.
In this setting, the MIDI banks are selected automatically. Manual MIDI bank selection therefore is not necessary.
Doubleclick Response (DCLIC RESPNS)
(1-20) This parameter sets the interval that will be recognised as a double-click on one of the two footswitches.
As you may recall, double-clicking the chain switch navigates back one step in the chain, while double-clicking
the hold switch can stop the drum sequencer.
Transmit SysEx (XMIT SYSEX)
Send System Exclusive data. Use this submenu to send all important parameter settings of your AXON via
MIDI. The data can be received by a computer running suitable software such as a sequencer program, or
another AXON AX 100 MKII. This function can also be used to send the parameter set to the computer, manage it there in groups and reload it to the AXON. This can be useful for creating your own preset library. Press
the ENTER button and use the Parameter +/- buttons to select the range you would like to send. Use the
Value +/- buttons to select individual sections.
Press the ENTER button again to start the transfer. The transfer is complete when READY appears on the
display.
Using the Editor, transfer to a computer is much easier, and a SysEx file is saved to the hard drive immediately. The text in brackets indicates where you can find this function in the Editor.
TOTAL DUMP [Global: Save all Settings]
Use this function to send the full parameter set of your AXON as one large dump.
PRESET... (ALL, 1 to 128) [Presets: Save to Disk]
Here you can choose whether to send all 128 USER presets or selected presets. In the editor, you can only
save individual presets here.
CHAIN... (ALL, 1-32)
Sends all chains or selected chains.
ARP-PATTRN... (ALL, 1-16)
Sends all rhythm patterns programmed for the arpeggiator, or only selected individual patterns.
52
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
SEQUENC... (ALL, PATTRN, TRACKS)
Sends all programmed drum sequences, or separated according to patterns and tracks.
Receive SysEx
Receive System Exclusive data
ON: The AXON is ready to receive SysEx data at its MIDI IN port. This setting must be selected when using
the Editor.
OFF: All received SysEx data will be ignored.
Edit Sequence
Editing drum sequences. The AXON supports the programming of drum sequences that can be triggered by
the hold switch while in Preset mode. A distinction must be made between a pattern and a track sequence. A
pattern consists of a maximum of 16 individual steps of identical length. You may select up to four drum instruments from any drumkit and trigger them within the step at three different dynamic levels. Up to 32 patterns can be created in the Pattern Editor. You may then use the programmed patterns in a track sequence
that controls the patterns according to your specifications. Up to 32 program steps are available in which you
can combine patterns in any order or repeat them as needed.
This menu item is located in the Software Editor, on the Arpeggiator / Sequencer page.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
53
Press the ENTER button to open the drum sequencer menu.
Tempo
(EXT, 41–240) The tempo of the drum sequencer can be synchronised externally using the MIDI Clock
(EXT/MIDI IN) or internally by specifying a BPM (beats per minute) value between 41 (very slow) and 240
(very fast). In case of external synchronisation (by a MIDI keyboard or MIDI drums, for example), output does
not start until MIDI Start/Sync commands have been received. The tempo set here will be overwritten by the
tempo in the preset and is only intended for editing sequences.
Volume
Volume (0–127) The drum sequencer has a separate volume control. View the value of this parameter to
adjust the level of the drum sequencer in relation to the other conditions.
Panorama
Positioning in the stereo image (L15 – R15) Here, you can define where the output drum sequence is to be
heard in the stereo image. L15 means that it is heard in the left channel only, MID means that it is heard in
both channels; R15 means that it is heard in the right channel only.
Reverb
(0 – 127) The degree of reverb effect for the drum sequencer can be adjusted separately. Use the VALUE +/buttons to set the parameters to the required value. Select 0 if you do not need reverb for the drum instruments.
Chorus
(0 – 127) Define the degree of the chorus effect for the output of the drum instruments. Select 0 if you do not
need chorus effect for the drum instruments.
54
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
Mode
(PATTERN, TRACK) As mentioned previously, your AXON has two different options for playing drum sequences. You can call either individual patterns or complete tracks containing multiple patterns. Use this parameter to determine the operating mode for the drum sequences during editing.
Sequencer Pattern
Pattern Editor (1 – 32) This submenu takes you to the Pattern Editor. Up to 32 patterns can be created and
either played individually or assembled to complete track sequences in the Track Editor. Select the desired
pattern number with the VALUE +/- buttons and press ENTER to start programming a pattern.
Drumkit
(Jazz Kit, Brush Kit, etc.) Choose the drumkit to be used for the drum pattern here.
Steps
(1 – 16) Here you can specify the number of 1/16 steps within the pattern. Later, you will be able to assign up
to four simultaneous drum instruments in three dynamic levels to each step. A value of 12 corresponds to a
three-quarter beat, for example.
Instruments (1-4)
Select an instrument from the list of the selected drumkit and start the editing process (ENTER button). The
lower half of your AXON display will now show a dotted line with a cursor that you can move back and forth
(PARAMETER +/- buttons) according to the individual steps specified in STEPS. Use the VALUE + button to
set an accent at a selected step position. The accent is marked by a small bar at the step position.
Pressing the VALUE + button repeatedly strengthens the accent, which is indicated by a correspondingly larger bar. Conversely, the VALUE - button weakens existing accents or removes them from the pattern.
Press the EXIT button when you are finished programming the drum instrument. You can now repeat the
process for up to three additional instruments to be used within the pattern.
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
55
Press the EXIT button again to close the Pattern Editor. Changes to a pattern are indicated by a flashing display. Press the STORE button to save the pattern to memory.
Sequencer Track
Track Editor (1-8)
Use this submenu to open the Track Editor for drum sequences. Up to 8 tracks can be programmed, which
can then be triggered within a preset using the hold switch. A track sequence consists of up to 32 steps in
which you can combine patterns in any order or repeat them as needed. Select the desired track number with
the VALUE +/- buttons and press ENTER to start programming the track. Press the EXIT button again to close
the Track Editor.
Step (ST)
(0-31)
Enter the step number of the track sequence here. The individual steps will be played in order. A maximum of
32 steps are available.
Count (C)
(0-99)
Use this parameter to set the number of times the pattern should be repeated within the step specified in ST.
The value 1 will play the pattern once. Higher values will repeat the pattern the given number of times. The
value 0 marks the end of a track sequence. The drum sequencer will automatically cancel the track output at
this point.
Pattern (PT)
(1-32)
Select the pattern to be played back at the step number specified in ST. Changes to a track are indicated by a
flashing display. Press the STORE button to save the track to memory.
ADC Monitor (ADC MON)
This option will provide you with an insight into the ANALOG/DIGITAL CONVERTER of your AXON. Press the
ENTER button to monitor the digitised hex data generated by the AXON from the analogue string signals. This
can be useful for diagnostic purposes, when detecting defects in the cable between the guitar interface and
the AXON, for example.
56

Appendix
Factory Reset
Press and hold the PRESET and EXIT buttons while powering the device up. All settings will be returned to
their factory defaults. As this also affects the presets, be sure to back them up beforehand with the Editor (see
SysEx)
Factory Presets
Factory presets were assigned to memory slots 129-256 to give you an overview of the wide range of possible
playing parameters. You can also use the factory presets as a starting point for your own experimentation,
editing them to suit your wishes. Edited factory presets can be stored in any of the slots within the USER range
(1-128).
Troubleshooting
No output to external MIDI output device.
Question: When I play my guitar, the AXON responds by displaying the pitches or the string level on the display, but the MIDI output device does not play.
Possible fault: Cabling/setup
Solution:
Ensure that the MIDI cables are correctly connected (from the MIDI OUT of your AXON to the MIDI IN of your
synthesiser).
The MIDI channels of both instruments must be set correctly.
The synthesiser should be in multitimbral mode.
Also ensure that the audio cable from your synthesiser to the amplifier is intact and correctly connected.
Bending doesn’t work properly.
Question: I hear the right note when I pick a string, but hammer-on, pull-off and bending does not work.
Possible problem: The pitchbend settings of the AXON and the external device may not match, or "Quantize"
is enabled.
Solution:
Check whether the pitchbend range settings of the external MIDI device match those of the AXON (GLOBAL
MODE).
Ensure that the QUANTIZE value in the preset split (PRESET MODE) is set to AUTO or OFF.
I get partially incorrect notes.
Question: When I play my guitar, the notes I hear are either partially or completely wrong.
Possible problem: Tuning discrepancy.
Solution:
Tune your guitar using the AXON tuning aid. If you need to tune the AXON to match your guitar, use the Tune
Base function in GLOBAL MODE.
The transposition function may be accidentally enabled in the preset split. Disable transposition (PRESET
MODE).
AXON AX 100 MKII V. 2.0 (English)
57
Your MIDI output device may also be incorrectly tuned or transposed. Make sure that all of the values are
correct.
Differing string volumes
Question: One or more strings is too loud or soft in relation to the others.
Possible problem: the sensitivity of the individual strings is not set correctly.
Solution:
Adjust the sensitivity of the affected string(s) in the AXON. (-> GLOBAL/GUITAR)
Strong differences in the dynamics of individual notes
Question: What can I do about extremely irritating, strong dynamic differences between individual notes?
Possible problem: Incorrect velocity parameters.
Solution:
The velocity settings of the AXON must be suitable to the sound of the output device. Try reducing the velocity
sensitivity parameter in the split preset (PRESET MODE) and increasing the velocity offset parameter.
Incorrect sounds
Question: Sounds shown on the display of the AXON do not match those that I'm hearing from the external
MIDI output device.
Possible problem: The external MIDI output device is not working in General MIDI mode, or does not support
this mode.
Solution:
Set your MIDI output device to GM mode. If your output device does not support this standard, set the Soundnames parameter to "NUM". You will then be able to select sound programs numerically via the MIDI bank and
number.

NOTES
1) Only recognised when Local Mode = Off. 2) Recognised on any channel when Local Mode = Off. Recognised on Basic/Hold channel
only when Local Mode = On. In this case the controller is ignored if it is already assigned internally. It is re-transmitted on the incoming
channel when Stringmode = Common. It is re-transmitted on the incoming channel and the 5 following channels when Stringmode =
Separate 3) Any Controller between 0 and 119 can be transmitted when assigned to a Wheel/Pedal or used with the Pickcontrol feature.
In this table "Transmitted" is only marked with "Yes" if the controller has a function additional to these assignments. 4) The effective
Volume/Pan value depends not only on the incoming controller value, but also on several internal parameters

Description
Part to rhythm allocation
p is part (0x0 to 0xF)
vv is 0x00 (sound part) or 0x01 (rhythm part).
This SYSEX allows a part to play sound or drumset. There is no limitation
of the number of parts playing drumset.
Default assignment: part 0 plays drums (default MIDI channel 9) all other
parts play sound.
In the following addresses, n is the MIDI channel (0x0 to 0xF)
0x40 0x1n 0x40
vv1 ... vv12
Scale tuning
vv1 to vv12 are 12 semitones tuning values (C, C#, D, ... A#, B)
Range: -64 (0x00) … 0 (0x40) … +63(0x7F) cents.
This SYSEX allows non chromatic tuning of the musical scale on a given
MIDI channel.
Default vv1, ... ,vv12 = 0x40 (chromatic tuning).
Scale tuning has no effect if the part is assigned to a rhythm channel or if
the sound played is not of chromatic type.
