the
demo.
4.
Assignable Rotary controllers
There are 14 assignable controllers in total (12 Knobs, Slider & Mod Wheel) selected by the ‘CONTROL SELECT’
& 'CONTROL ASSIGN' functions.
‘Assignable Controllers’ refers to any of the 12 assignable Knobs and also includes the assignable Wheel and
Slider. The Slider is Assignable Controller 13, the Wheel is Assignable Controller 14.
The basic operation is:Press the CONTROL SELECT buttons together. Select the controller by moving it or by typing the number in.
Press the CONTROL ASSIGN buttons and enter the new number using the keypad.
To change one of the assignable controllers, the MK-249C uses the following method:
•Press both 'CONTROL SELECT' buttons and release.
•The LED display shows the current Controller which has been selected. The LED’s toggle between the controller
number and the assigned value. E.g. initially it would toggle between c14 & 01, showing that the Wheel is
assigned to the Modulation Wheel controller.
•Select a controller by moving any one of the assignable controllers, the numeric keypad or the +/- keys.
•The LED then toggles the display between the new controller and its assignment.
•Repeat this process to see the controller number assignment (0-132) for any Knob (1-12), Slider (13) or the
Wheel (14), by moving the relevant controller or by typing a new number.
•If no keys are pressed or any of the assignable controllers moved, the LED display stops flashing after 3 seconds
and returns to normal operation.
•Press both 'CONTROL ASSIGN' buttons & release.
•The number entered at this point will be assigned to the last selected controller.
•The numeric entry uses the standard data entry system. (see section on Entering Numbers)
•If a complete number is entered the display stops flashing and the new assignment is stored.
•If the Inc/Dec keys are used, the revised value is shown on the LED display and the flashing time-out is reset.
•Once a controller has been assigned the current knob/slider/wheel position should be sent out.
This ensures that when the controller if first moved it does not trigger a large jump from it’s previous setting.
During the data entry stage while the LED display is flashing, the Knobs, Slider and the Wheel do not function.
The MIDI keyboard should continue to function at all times.
5.
Entering Numbers
When any number is entered it adheres to the following rules:Increment/Decrement Keys
•Initially the LED display starts flashing.
•The value displayed can be incremented/decremented using the +/- keys.
•Pressing both + & - should call up the default value for that parameter.
•The LED display shows the new value.
•The new value is sent out except for the CONTROL ASSIGN which sends data when the display stops flashing)
•When the display stops flashing the keyboard returns to normal operation.
Numeric Keys
•Initially the LED display starts flashing.
•A numeric value can be typed in using the numbers 0-9.
•As each key is pressed the display continues to flash, the time-out value is reset.
•When a complete number* has been entered the display stops flashing and the value is selected.
•Alternatively, if no key is pressed and the display stops flashing the number on the display is selected.
•The update routine is triggered, so that the new value is sent out.
•When the display stops flashing the keyboard returns to normal operation.
* The following table shows how many keys are required to enter a complete number:-
