Evolution MK-425C/449C/461C Advanced User Guide
About The Advanced Guide
In the MK-425C/449C/461C Advanced Guide we have made the assumption that you
have been through the Getting Started Guide which should have been supplied in
printed form with your keyboard. If you do not have this guide, please contact your
local distributor or download it from our website www.evolution.co.uk
The Getting Started Guide should insure that you are now familiar with the basic
operation of the keyboard so that we now can focus on more in-depth features.
First however, we need to explain some terminology we use throughout the guide.
Terminology
Edit Mode:
Edit Mode describes the short period after a function button has been pressed during
which the parameters of that function can be altered. The numeric keypad can be
used to alter a parameter during this time. No data is sent out of the Evolution
MK-425C/449C/461C when it is in Edit mode except for program and bank changes.
LCD symbols shown in Edit mode will flash to show you that a particular parameter
can be edited. If a number is part entered, and a new controller turned, that number
will become the relevant parameter number for the new controller and the 3 second
editing period will re-trigger.

MIDI Note Numbers
Introduction To Programming Options
Each of the MK-425C/449C/461C’s controllers can send MIDI cc, RPN/NRPN, GM 1&2
SysEx messages and even be assigned to individual MIDI channels.
MIDI cc (continuous controller) numbers are part of the standard MIDI specifications and
are typically used to control the real-time changing of parameters in musical equipment.
For a complete list of standard MIDI controller numbers from 0 to 131, please see
Appendix E on page 25.
Any of the real-time controllers on the keyboard can be assigned to a MIDI cc
number however the 10 assignable buttons have slightly different options from the 9
Faders (MK-449C/461C only) or rotary controllers.
The following 2 charts show all the transmit messages you can program for each
of the fader/controllers and assignable MIDI buttons respectively. We show you this already at this stage, so you can follow the principle of programming the controllers in the
following instructions and examples.

Selecting A Controller For Editing
Before you can assign a MIDI cc to one of the MK-425C/449C/461C’s controllers, you will
need to select it for editing. There are 2 methods for doing this:
1.
2.
Press CONTROL SELECT. The LCD will display the CONTROLLER symbol.
The symbol will be flashing to indicate the controller settings can be altered. The
3-digit display will show the number of the currently selected controller, proceeded
by a 'C', or an 'F' if the controller is a fader.
Type in the number of the controller using the numeric keypad, or the +/buttons.
or
Move a fader/rotary controller.
Simply moving a fader/rotary controller will make it the currently selected
controller, ready for editing.
It is not possible to select any of the 10 numerical buttons by pressing them, since during
edit mode, they are used to enter numerical values. To program these buttons, please use
the first method. We have given the buttons 0 to 9 the following numbers for the selection
process: MK-425C = 11-20, MK-449C = 20-29, MK-461C = 24-33 respectively.

Assigning MIDI CC’s
Appendix C - Hexadecimal Conversion Chart
Once the controller you want to edit has been selected, you can change the assigned
MIDI cc number in the following way:
1.
2.
Press “CONTROL ASSIGN”. The LCD will flash the CC symbol.
The 3 digit display will indicate the currently assigned MIDI cc number.
Type in a new MIDI cc value using the numeric keypad or '+' and '-' buttons.
The MIDI controller number you select will be assigned to the currently selected
controller, shown by the number on the small, 2-digit display.
Example: After pressing ASSIGN, the display shows the
cc symbol and in this case displays that currently the MIDI cc 07 is
assigned to fader/rotary controller number 33.
Assigning An Individual MIDI Channel
1.
2.
3.
Select the controller you want to edit as described earlier.
Press “CHANNEL ASSIGN”.
The LCD will display the CHAN symbol and the 3-digit display will show the
current channel assignment of the selected controller, preceded by a ’c’. The
small 2-digit display will show the currently selected controller for assignment.
Type the MIDI channel number (01-16) you want the controller to send to,
using the numeric keypad or the +/- keys.
If the controller is assigned to channel 00, it will transmit on the global channel.
Setting Toggle Values For The Buttons
The 10 assignable buttons can each be assigned to toggle between two values. You
may for instance want to send out value 15 when you first press the button followed by
value 74 when you press the button for a second time. This is how you do it:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Press the Function button labelled “DATA MSB” 2 times.
Type in 15 using the numerical keypad or the +/- keys.
Press the Function button labelled “DATA LSB” 2 times.
Type in 74 using the numerical keypad or the +/- keys.
If you want the button to send the same value every time you press it, simply type in the
same value both times.

As already described, the standard MIDI controller numbers range from 0 to 131. We
have extended the list of MIDI cc’s that can be assigned to the controllers of the
keyboard to include RPN/NRPN, MMC and General MIDI 1&2 SysEx messages.
These advanced messages are as easy to program as a regular MIDI cc instruction by
entering values 132 to 152 when programming MIDI cc’s. The charts on page 8 and 9
(or Appendix B) show you what number correspond to each message
To program the values required for these advanced messages, the
MK-425C/449C/461C requires you to press the PROGRAM, DATA LSB and DATA
MSB buttons twice respectively. Pressing only once will send the program and bank
change instructions “on the fly” as described in the Getting Started guide.
Lets look at a couple of examples to see how this works. Please refer to the charts on
pages 4 & 5 so you get to grips with the principle:

About SysEx Messages & Device ID
Please note that the device ID for a Sys Ex message assigned to a controller can not
be changed using the Device ID buttons. These buttons are used for varying the
global device ID of the MK-425C/449C/461C.

Non-Volatile Memory
The MK-425C/449C/461C uses non-volatile memory so that you can continue where
you left off even after powering down and restarting. The current controller and
channel assignments are stored whether you have stored your setup to a memory
locations or not. Also stored is Draw Bar mode (on/off), DATA LSB and DATA MSB
data, global channel setting and last used memory preset.
Memory Dump
The dual press “MEMORY DUMP” buttons will send out a number of Sys Ex data packets that represent the 10 memories you have set up in your MK-449C/461C (MK-225C:
Press “DATA LSB” and “RECALL” simultaneously to send out memory dump). This is
useful for storing or backing up the contents of your memory presets externally.
Appendix A –G
You can record the complete memory dump in to a standard sequencer. To recall the
memory dump back, play the MIDI track containing the recorded memory dump to the
keyboard, making sure that the MK-425C/449C/461C’s drivers are selected as output
for that particular track.
The current controller assignments are not affected by a memory dump, or a memory
send to the keyboard. Once a memory dump has been sent to the keyboard, you will
need to recall a preset to access the new memory settings.
Assigning Device ID
The dual press “DEVICE ID” buttons will allow you to assign a Device ID to the
MK-449C/461C (MK-225C: Press “PROGRAM and DATA MSB”). The default Device ID
is 127, which means when a memory dump is performed, that dump can be received by
the same keyboard model, regardless of the Device ID setting.
If a device ID is assigned to any number other than 127, the memory dump performed
will be specific to MK-425C/449C/461C with the same device ID. If the device ID of a
MK-425C/449C/461C differs from the one recorded with the memory dump, the data will
be ignored.
The device ID is a handy way of differentiating between multiple keyboards.
Otherwise, we recommend you keep the device ID setting as 127.
When you press the Device ID buttons, you will see the small 2-digit display on LCD
display 'id'. The 3-digit display represents the assigned Device ID. You can enter a
new device ID using the numeric keypad, or the '+' and '-' buttons.
For more information on SysEx messages and device ID, please go to page 13.
Resetting To The Factory Default Setting
You can reset the MK-425C/449C/461C back to the factory defaults on power-up by
holding down the +/- buttons.
Note: Restoring the Factory presets will erase all setups stored to memory.

Viewing The Contents Of A Memory
Right-click on a memory to view the contents. Please note that it is not possible to edit
the contents of a memory. The Sys Ex librarian will simply allow you to rearrange the
order of memories, or copy memories between one dump and another. The screen shot
shown below shows the first memory of a memory dump from a 425C with the factory
defaults.
Saving A Setup
Once you have named all your presets, and organised them in the desired order, click
’save’ to save the content.
Alternatively you can click on the File menu and select save to save the file with the
previously assigned file name, or save as to assign the memory dump a new file name.
The shortcut key to save is CTRL+S.
MIDI Messages
Explained
Make sure you give the file a name which allows you to quickly identify your collection of
setups.
Loading A Setup
To load a memory setup file back in to the librarian, click on the ’Load’ button and select
the required file. The loaded preset setups will appear in the Edit Window. You can then
either send it directly to the Evolution device by clicking send, or edit it.
Alternatively, select Open from the File menu.
The shortcut key for loading is CTRL+O
Future Development Of The Librarian
We strongly recommend you register your ownership of the Evolution Librarian if you
would like to be kept informed about future development. As you can see from the version
number, the software is at an early version 1.0 stage and we will continue to work on
enhancements for the software.

Program & Bank Changes Explained
Setting Up The Librarian Software
The original GM MIDI specification catered for only 128 voices, numbered from 0-127.
It is possible to access a different voice by sending a program change.
Before you start using the Librarian, check that the MK-425C/449C/461C has been
selected as input and output device.
In order to expand on the GM set of voices, Bank changes were devised. Each bank
contains 128 patches, that can be accessed using a program change. There are
16,384 banks available, accessible by sending a 14-bit Bank change message. The
first 7 bits of this message are sent in a single byte known as the Bank LSB. The last
7 bits are specified by another byte known as the Bank MSB. The BANK LSB is the
most commonly used. This allows for 128 bank changes, and often there is no need to
send a Bank MSB.
1.
2.
You will find almost all MIDI devices respond to the program change, but some that do
not conform to the GM set of voices use the program change message for other
purposes. Many VST instruments have adopted this approach, allowing you to use a
program change to change the instrument patch. The FM7 by Native Instruments is a
good example of this.
Bank changes are more rarely used, although they do exist. Bank changes are useful
in manufacturer’s extensions to the MIDI specification, such as Roland’s GS
specification and Yamaha’s XG specification. Both of these require you to specify a
Bank change, in order to access the extra voices and effects that these specifications
provide.
Sending Program, Bank LSB and Bank MSB data is made simple using the
Mk-425C/449C/461C. Simply press the PROGRAM, DATA LSB or DATA MSB button
and enter the program or bank change you wish to send.
1.
Select MIDI Setup from the Options menu.
Ensure the USB driver for you MK-425C/449C/461C is selected in the
“Inputs” Column.
If you are using native drivers this may be named “USB Audio Device”.
In the “Outputs” column, select the USB driver for you MK-425C/449C/461C
If you are using native drivers this may be named “USB Audio Device”.
You should now be ready to use the Librarian software with you Evolution keyboard.
Librarian Overview
As you can see from the screenshot of the Librarian on page 16, you can save, load,
receive or send the complete content to and from either Bank columns.
To transmit the complete content of your MK-425C/449C/461C to the librarian,
simply press the “Receive” button on the Librarian software.
This process can only be completed successfully if the USB drivers for your keyboard
have been selected correctly, as described in the “Setting Up The Librarian Software”
section.
Once you have Received data from the keyboard, the memories are displayed in the
column.
Organising Presets Received From A Device
RPN/NRPN’s Explained
Non-registered parameter numbers (NRPN’s) are device specific messages that
enable the control of synths via MIDI. The MIDI specification defines parameter
numbers to allow scope for manufacturers to specify their own controllers. The more
common of these have been registered by the MIDI Manufacturer’s Association and
are part of the MIDI specification (hence the term Registered Parameter
Numbers – RPN's). (See Appendix F.)
MIDI controllers 98 and 99 represent the NRPN LSB and MSB respectively, while 100
and 101 represent the RPN LSB and MSB. This can be seen from the MIDI controllers
list in Appendix D. To transmit an NRPN/RPN, these two controller messages are sent
along with their user-specified values. A further controller message and value needs
to be sent to specify the (coarse or fine) value adjustment.
This is specified by controller number 6 (Data entry) for coarse adjustments or number
38 for fine adjustments.
12
You can name the memories as you like. To re-name a memory, double-click on the
memory. You can then move memories around by dragging them to a new position, or
using the copy buttons between the two windows.
These buttons are defined below:
Will copy the selected memory in Bank 2 to Bank 1.
Will copy the selected memory in Bank 1 to Bank 2.
Will copy all memories in Bank 2 to Bank 1.
Will copy all the memories in Bank 1 to Bank 2.
Will undo the last copy you made. Only the last copy is remembered.
It’s a good idea to decide which column is your master column, to avoid confusion and
maybe loosing hours of work.

About The Evolution Librarian Software
The Evolution Librarian Software is a Windows PC librarian program developed for
Evolution products. The program not only works with the MK-425C/449C/461C keyboards but is also compatible with the Evolution UC-33e USB controller. That means
you can use one librarian package for both your keyboard and your controller, if you
own a UC-33e
And even better, you can swap patches between Evolution products that’s supported
by the Librarian so you never have to create the same patch twice.
The librarian itself, allows you to send and receive the 10 patches to and from the
MK-425C/449C/461C, load and save memory banks, view how individual patches
have been programmed and drag and drop patches in order to create new
combinations in the 10 memory locations.
Installing The Evolution Librarian Software
1.
2.
3.
Insert the Evolution Installer CD-ROM in to your CD-ROM drive.
Click on “Librarian Installer”
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process
Once the installation has been completed, launch the program. The following is a
screenshot of what you should be seeing on your monitor.
A list of NRPN’s will always be given in the User Manual of a device that receives NRPN
messages. It is always necessary that the NRPN MSB and LSB are sent together. Both will
be specified in the device’s manual. You may find the manufacturer’s have only specified
the numbers in Hexadecimal format. In this case, use Appendix C to translate the value to
Decimal.
Your Evolution keyboard makes the process of transmitting NRPN’s easy. All you need is
to enter the appropriate NRPN LSB by pressing the LSB/DATA button twice, enter the
NRPN MSB by pressing the MSB/DATA button twice, and as you move the controller, an
appropriate NRPN message will be sent out. Assign NRPN coarse to make big sweeps,
or NRPN fine to make slight adjustments.
SysEx Explained
System Exclusive (SysEx) messages were defined in the MIDI specification to allow
individual devices to have individual control via MIDI. The format of SysEx messages
allows for virtually any function to be performed via MIDI – so long as the receiving device
is able to translate the message, and act accordingly. This allows devices to send audio
sample memory data, memory dumps, controller settings, and much more. It also allows
the controllers of one device to be controlled by another.
It is not possible to program your own specified SysEx message into the MK425C/449C/461C. However, there are some useful SysEx messages pre-programmed into
the keyboard, that can be accessed by assigning the appropriate MIDI CC to a controller
(see Appendix B)
It should be noted that a SysEx message is not transmitted on any specified channel. All
SysEx messages contain a device ID, that is used to single out devices to respond to the
SysEx message. All other devices are ignored. If you are using a SysEx message on the
MK-425C/449C/461C, the global channel is ignored. When you press CHANNEL, instead
of entering a channel for the controller, you will be enter a device ID instead. This is
indicated by the fact that the Chan symbol will not be showing.
Device ID’s run from 00 to 127. 127 is the default device number setting on the
MK-425C/449C/461C. This setting transmits the SysEx message to all devices.
2
Although it is not possible to program the controllers of the MK-425C/449C/461C with your
own SysEx messages, there are software applications that can receive a MIDI input signal
and transmit a different, user specified message. You can program your SysEx messages
into the translator software, then translate the incoming data from the keyboard to your
SysEx, depending on the controller you are using.

individual devices to have individual control via MIDI. The format of SysEx messages
allows for virtually any function to be performed via MIDI – so long as the receiving device
is able to translate the message, and act accordingly. This allows devices to send audio
sample memory data, memory dumps, controller settings, and much more. It also allows
the controllers of one device to be controlled by another.
It is not possible to program your own specified SysEx message into the MK425C/449C/461C. However, there are some useful SysEx messages pre-programmed into
the keyboard, that can be accessed by assigning the appropriate MIDI CC to a controller
(see Appendix B)
It should be noted that a SysEx message is not transmitted on any specified channel. All
SysEx messages contain a device ID, that is used to single out devices to respond to the
SysEx message. All other devices are ignored. If you are using a SysEx message on the
MK-425C/449C/461C, the global channel is ignored. When you press CHANNEL, instead
of entering a channel for the controller, you will be enter a device ID instead. This is
indicated by the fact that the Chan symbol will not be showing.
Device ID’s run from 00 to 127. 127 is the default device number setting on the
MK-425C/449C/461C. This setting transmits the SysEx message to all devices.
2
Although it is not possible to program the controllers of the MK-425C/449C/461C with your
own SysEx messages, there are software applications that can receive a MIDI input signal
and transmit a different, user specified message. You can program your SysEx messages
into the translator software, then translate the incoming data from the keyboard to your
SysEx, depending on the controller you are using.

Program & Bank Changes Explained
Setting Up The Librarian Software
The original GM MIDI specification catered for only 128 voices, numbered from 0-127.
It is possible to access a different voice by sending a program change.
Before you start using the Librarian, check that the MK-425C/449C/461C has been
selected as input and output device.
In order to expand on the GM set of voices, Bank changes were devised. Each bank
contains 128 patches, that can be accessed using a program change. There are
16,384 banks available, accessible by sending a 14-bit Bank change message. The
first 7 bits of this message are sent in a single byte known as the Bank LSB. The last
7 bits are specified by another byte known as the Bank MSB. The BANK LSB is the
most commonly used. This allows for 128 bank changes, and often there is no need to
send a Bank MSB.
1.
2.
You will find almost all MIDI devices respond to the program change, but some that do
not conform to the GM set of voices use the program change message for other
purposes. Many VST instruments have adopted this approach, allowing you to use a
program change to change the instrument patch. The FM7 by Native Instruments is a
good example of this.
Bank changes are more rarely used, although they do exist. Bank changes are useful
in manufacturer’s extensions to the MIDI specification, such as Roland’s GS
specification and Yamaha’s XG specification. Both of these require you to specify a
Bank change, in order to access the extra voices and effects that these specifications
provide.
Sending Program, Bank LSB and Bank MSB data is made simple using the
Mk-425C/449C/461C. Simply press the PROGRAM, DATA LSB or DATA MSB button
and enter the program or bank change you wish to send.
1.
Select MIDI Setup from the Options menu.
Ensure the USB driver for you MK-425C/449C/461C is selected in the
“Inputs” Column.
If you are using native drivers this may be named “USB Audio Device”.
In the “Outputs” column, select the USB driver for you MK-425C/449C/461C
If you are using native drivers this may be named “USB Audio Device”.
You should now be ready to use the Librarian software with you Evolution keyboard.
Librarian Overview
As you can see from the screenshot of the Librarian on page 16, you can save, load,
receive or send the complete content to and from either Bank columns.
To transmit the complete content of your MK-425C/449C/461C to the librarian,
simply press the “Receive” button on the Librarian software.
This process can only be completed successfully if the USB drivers for your keyboard
have been selected correctly, as described in the “Setting Up The Librarian Software”
section.
Once you have Received data from the keyboard, the memories are displayed in the
column.
Organising Presets Received From A Device
RPN/NRPN’s Explained
Non-registered parameter numbers (NRPN’s) are device specific messages that
enable the control of synths via MIDI. The MIDI specification defines parameter
numbers to allow scope for manufacturers to specify their own controllers. The more
common of these have been registered by the MIDI Manufacturer’s Association and
are part of the MIDI specification (hence the term Registered Parameter
Numbers – RPN's). (See Appendix F.)
MIDI controllers 98 and 99 represent the NRPN LSB and MSB respectively, while 100
and 101 represent the RPN LSB and MSB. This can be seen from the MIDI controllers
list in Appendix D. To transmit an NRPN/RPN, these two controller messages are sent
along with their user-specified values. A further controller message and value needs
to be sent to specify the (coarse or fine) value adjustment.
This is specified by controller number 6 (Data entry) for coarse adjustments or number
38 for fine adjustments.
12
You can name the memories as you like. To re-name a memory, double-click on the
memory. You can then move memories around by dragging them to a new position, or
using the copy buttons between the two windows.
These buttons are defined below:
Will copy the selected memory in Bank 2 to Bank 1.
Will copy the selected memory in Bank 1 to Bank 2.
Will copy all memories in Bank 2 to Bank 1.
Will copy all the memories in Bank 1 to Bank 2.
Will undo the last copy you made. Only the last copy is remembered.
It’s a good idea to decide which column is your master column, to avoid confusion and
maybe loosing hours of work.

Viewing The Contents Of A Memory
Right-click on a memory to view the contents. Please note that it is not possible to edit
the contents of a memory. The Sys Ex librarian will simply allow you to rearrange the
order of memories, or copy memories between one dump and another. The screen shot
shown below shows the first memory of a memory dump from a 425C with the factory
defaults.
Saving A Setup
Once you have named all your presets, and organised them in the desired order, click
’save’ to save the content.
Alternatively you can click on the File menu and select save to save the file with the
previously assigned file name, or save as to assign the memory dump a new file name.
The shortcut key to save is CTRL+S.

Loading A Setup
To load a memory setup file back in to the librarian, click on the ’Load’ button and select
the required file. The loaded preset setups will appear in the Edit Window. You can then
either send it directly to the Evolution device by clicking send, or edit it.
Alternatively, select Open from the File menu.
The shortcut key for loading is CTRL+O
Future Development Of The Librarian
We strongly recommend you register your ownership of the Evolution Librarian if you
would like to be kept informed about future development. As you can see from the version
number, the software is at an early version 1.0 stage and we will continue to work on
enhancements for the software.

Non-Volatile Memory
The MK-425C/449C/461C uses non-volatile memory so that you can continue where
you left off even after powering down and restarting. The current controller and
channel assignments are stored whether you have stored your setup to a memory
locations or not. Also stored is Draw Bar mode (on/off), DATA LSB and DATA MSB
data, global channel setting and last used memory preset.
Memory Dump
The dual press “MEMORY DUMP” buttons will send out a number of Sys Ex data packets that represent the 10 memories you have set up in your MK-449C/461C (MK-225C:
Press “DATA LSB” and “RECALL” simultaneously to send out memory dump). This is
useful for storing or backing up the contents of your memory presets externally.
Appendix A –G
You can record the complete memory dump in to a standard sequencer. To recall the
memory dump back, play the MIDI track containing the recorded memory dump to the
keyboard, making sure that the MK-425C/449C/461C’s drivers are selected as output
for that particular track.
The current controller assignments are not affected by a memory dump, or a memory
send to the keyboard. Once a memory dump has been sent to the keyboard, you will
need to recall a preset to access the new memory settings.
Assigning Device ID
The dual press “DEVICE ID” buttons will allow you to assign a Device ID to the
MK-449C/461C (MK-225C: Press “PROGRAM and DATA MSB”). The default Device ID
is 127, which means when a memory dump is performed, that dump can be received by
the same keyboard model, regardless of the Device ID setting.
If a device ID is assigned to any number other than 127, the memory dump performed
will be specific to MK-425C/449C/461C with the same device ID. If the device ID of a
MK-425C/449C/461C differs from the one recorded with the memory dump, the data will
be ignored.
The device ID is a handy way of differentiating between multiple keyboards.
Otherwise, we recommend you keep the device ID setting as 127.
When you press the Device ID buttons, you will see the small 2-digit display on LCD
display 'id'. The 3-digit display represents the assigned Device ID. You can enter a
new device ID using the numeric keypad, or the '+' and '-' buttons.
For more information on SysEx messages and device ID, please go to page 13.
Resetting To The Factory Default Setting
You can reset the MK-425C/449C/461C back to the factory defaults on power-up by
holding down the +/- buttons.
Note: Restoring the Factory presets will erase all setups stored to memory.

When transmitting SysEx messages, the individual control channel number does not
define a transmit channel, but a device ID. This is made clear since when you press
the CHANNEL button, the Channel symbol will not be shown and there is no ’c’ in the
3 digit display.
0 = YES
X=NO
Device ID’s range between 00 – 127. In most cases, you should set the device ID as
127. 127 means the SysEx message will be received by all devices.

As already described, the standard MIDI controller numbers range from 0 to 131. We
have extended the list of MIDI cc’s that can be assigned to the controllers of the
keyboard to include RPN/NRPN, MMC and General MIDI 1&2 SysEx messages.
These advanced messages are as easy to program as a regular MIDI cc instruction by
entering values 132 to 152 when programming MIDI cc’s. The charts on page 8 and 9
(or Appendix B) show you what number correspond to each message
To program the values required for these advanced messages, the
MK-425C/449C/461C requires you to press the PROGRAM, DATA LSB and DATA
MSB buttons twice respectively. Pressing only once will send the program and bank
change instructions “on the fly” as described in the Getting Started guide.
Lets look at a couple of examples to see how this works. Please refer to the charts on
pages 4 & 5 so you get to grips with the principle:

Example: After pressing ASSIGN, the display shows the
cc symbol and in this case displays that currently the MIDI cc 07 is
assigned to fader/rotary controller number 33.
Assigning An Individual MIDI Channel
1.
2.
3.
Select the controller you want to edit as described earlier.
Press “CHANNEL ASSIGN”.
The LCD will display the CHAN symbol and the 3-digit display will show the
current channel assignment of the selected controller, preceded by a ’c’. The
small 2-digit display will show the currently selected controller for assignment.
Type the MIDI channel number (01-16) you want the controller to send to,
using the numeric keypad or the +/- keys.
If the controller is assigned to channel 00, it will transmit on the global channel.
Setting Toggle Values For The Buttons
The 10 assignable buttons can each be assigned to toggle between two values. You
may for instance want to send out value 15 when you first press the button followed by
value 74 when you press the button for a second time. This is how you do it:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Press the Function button labelled “DATA MSB” 2 times.
Type in 15 using the numerical keypad or the +/- keys.
Press the Function button labelled “DATA LSB” 2 times.
Type in 74 using the numerical keypad or the +/- keys.
If you want the button to send the same value every time you press it, simply type in the
same value both times.

Selecting A Controller For Editing
Before you can assign a MIDI cc to one of the MK-425C/449C/461C’s controllers, you will
need to select it for editing. There are 2 methods for doing this:
1.
2.
Press CONTROL SELECT. The LCD will display the CONTROLLER symbol.
The symbol will be flashing to indicate the controller settings can be altered. The
3-digit display will show the number of the currently selected controller, proceeded
by a 'C', or an 'F' if the controller is a fader.
Type in the number of the controller using the numeric keypad, or the +/buttons.
or
Move a fader/rotary controller.
Simply moving a fader/rotary controller will make it the currently selected
controller, ready for editing.
It is not possible to select any of the 10 numerical buttons by pressing them, since during
edit mode, they are used to enter numerical values. To program these buttons, please use
the first method. We have given the buttons 0 to 9 the following numbers for the selection
process: MK-425C = 11-20, MK-449C = 20-29, MK-461C = 24-33 respectively.

MIDI Note Numbers
Introduction To Programming Options
Each of the MK-425C/449C/461C’s controllers can send MIDI cc, RPN/NRPN, GM 1&2
SysEx messages and even be assigned to individual MIDI channels.
MIDI cc (continuous controller) numbers are part of the standard MIDI specifications and
are typically used to control the real-time changing of parameters in musical equipment.
For a complete list of standard MIDI controller numbers from 0 to 131, please see
Appendix E on page 25.
Any of the real-time controllers on the keyboard can be assigned to a MIDI cc
number however the 10 assignable buttons have slightly different options from the 9
Faders (MK-449C/461C only) or rotary controllers.
The following 2 charts show all the transmit messages you can program for each
of the fader/controllers and assignable MIDI buttons respectively. We show you this already at this stage, so you can follow the principle of programming the controllers in the
following instructions and examples.

About The Advanced Guide
In the MK-425C/449C/461C Advanced Guide we have made the assumption that you
have been through the Getting Started Guide which should have been supplied in
printed form with your keyboard. If you do not have this guide, please contact your
local distributor or download it from our website www.evolution.co.uk
The Getting Started Guide should insure that you are now familiar with the basic
operation of the keyboard so that we now can focus on more in-depth features.
First however, we need to explain some terminology we use throughout the guide.
Terminology
Edit Mode:
Edit Mode describes the short period after a function button has been pressed during
which the parameters of that function can be altered. The numeric keypad can be
used to alter a parameter during this time. No data is sent out of the Evolution
MK-425C/449C/461C when it is in Edit mode except for program and bank changes.
LCD symbols shown in Edit mode will flash to show you that a particular parameter
can be edited. If a number is part entered, and a new controller turned, that number
will become the relevant parameter number for the new controller and the 3 second
editing period will re-trigger.
