GETTING STARTED
We have included this section for those of you who can't wait to experience the
power of your new SGX-2000. Follow the hookup directions for the setup you use
and then start playing. After the initial thrill wears off (if that's possible!),
and you want to get to know your SGX-2000 better, refer to the rest of this
manual for details, hints, and examples. Till later.....
Additional information to get you started can be found in Appendix A.
A block diagram showing signal flow, inputs and outputs can be found on page 51.
A hookup diagram can be found on page 52.
For all hookup combinations:
1) With the exception of the Encoder, set all the knobs to the 12:00 position and
center the slider controls. All presets were configured with the control knobs
set at 12:00 and the sliders centered.
2) Select any preset with the Encoder and start playing.
3) Use the Stereo Master Output control to increase or decrease your output
level. To adjust your input gain, use the Input Drive control. The Second Stage
Equalizer controls on the front panel allow you to tweek the curve of each preset
and acts much like the tone controls on a guitar amp.
4) For maximum distortion crunch, turn the Drive control towards maximum.
5) If you are in a preset using the Tube Distortion, adjust the characteristic
sound of the tube with the Tube Contour control.
6) The presets of the SGX-2000 are grouped together for various sounds and
applications. Locations 1 thru 21 are set up for instant use with a guitar, try
presets 22 thru 30 with an X-15 ULTRAFOOT and guitar for foot control of the
effects. Check out presets 31 thru 45 for delay effects such as chorus and
flange. Presets 46 thru 49 have no digital effects, just raw tube and solid state
power. The rest of the presets are a collection of killer and clean sounds,
special effects, and a few things totally out of this world!
INSTRUMENT & HEADPHONES
First connect the unit to an AC recepticle for power. Plug your instrument into
the Instrument Input jack located on the front panel. Plug a set of headphones
into the Headphone Output jack on the front panel. Adjust your listening level
with the Stereo Master Level control.
INSTRUMENT & GUITAR AMP
Plug your instrument into the Instrument Input jack located on the front panel.
Connect a cable from your guitar amp input to the Instrument Level/(-)10dB Output
jack. Turn the SGX-2000 on first and then turn on your guitar amp. TURN DOWN THE
LEVEL OF YOUR AMP before you play! Adjust your levels accordingly. If you are
clipping your amp, back off on the Output Level of the SGX-2000.
INSTRUMENT & POWER AMP
Plug your instrument into the Instrument Input jack located on the front panel.
Connect a cable from your power amp to the Left Main Output (Line Out) jack. If
your power amp is stereo, connect the left and right inputs of the amp to the
2
Left and Right Main Output jacks. Turn the SGX-2000 on first then turn on your
power amp. Adjust the level with the Stereo Master Level control.
INSTALLATION
The SGX 2000 may be used in a variety of setups including: direct into a power or
guitar amplifier, mixing consoles with effects send and return facilities, in the
effects loop of an amplifier, or mixer and in the tape loop of a home receiver.
Self contained in an all steel double high 19" rack mount case, the SGX 2000 is
designed for continuous professional use. For touring rack applications, care
should be taken to support the units rear if the rack might be subjected to
mechanical shock.
NOTE: The front panel may bend if no rear support is provided. Mounting location
is not critical, but for greater reliability we recommend that you not place the
unit on top of power amps, tube equipment, or other sources of heat.
CONNECTIONS
All audio connections to the SGX 2000 are made at the rear of the unit via
professional 1/4" mono phone jacks or XLR connectors. The MIDI connections are
accomplished via five pin "DIN" jacks on the rear panel. A 2.1mm female connector
is the intended plug to access the 9 volt DC output.
POWER
This device is AC powered via a standard 3 conductor grounded power cable. Plug
into any standard AC recepticle. We recommend the use of a surge protector to
decrease the chance of equipment damage due to voltage surges or spikes on the
line. For your own safety as well as the safety of others, do not remove the
ground pin of the cable. Refer to the rear panel or the specifications for proper
operating voltages.
INPUTS:
There are a two inputs available for use on the SGX 2000.
INSTRUMENT INPUT
An Instrument input is located on the front panel. Plug a guitar directly into
the jack with a standard 1/4" cable.
LINE INPUT
Line inputs are located on the rear panel. If you are using a mono source to the
rear panel Line inputs, use the Left (Mono) jack. True stereo processing is
accomplished by using both inputs in a left/right application. Use the Line input
for sending "hotter" signals to the SGX 2000.
OUTPUTS:
Four different outputs are available for use.
1/4" OUTPUTS
Use the 1/4" Instrument Output to send your signal to a guitar amp. There are two
line level outputs. Use the 1/4" mono Line Out jacks to send your final signal
to amplifiers, mixers, or recorders. The Stereo Master Output control sets your
final level present at these jacks.
3
XLR OUTPUTS
The male XLR outputs are balanced outputs for use in sending your final effects
signal to a mixing board. Pin 2 is hot (+), pin 3 is negative (-), and pin 1 is
ground. The Stereo Master Output control does not effect the levels present at
this output. Use the Mains/XLR output slider on the front panel to adjust the
level at these outputs.
HEADPHONE OUTPUTS
Headphone outputs may be found on the front and rear panel. Each headphone output
is a standard 1/4" stereo jack. The Stereo Master Output control sets your final
level present at these jacks.
NOTES:
1) When a true stereo signal is applied to the inputs, the resulting output is
true stereo (dry signal only). If both outputs are used with a mono input signal,
a stereo image is produced.
2) Using one output with a mono or stereo source provides a mono signal combining
the information from both outputs.
3)The effect output is a processed combination of both the left and right input
signals.
4) When you use the Panner, make sure you are using both outputs (stereo out), if
you're using only one output you'll get NO EFFECT! This is because the two
outputs are opposite and the SGX 2000 sums the outputs, the effect signals
therefore cancel each other.
5) The headphone outputs are individually driven with their own buffer amp.
EFFECT LOOP SEND and RETURN:
EFFECT LOOP 1
Effect Loop 1 is a mono send and return located at the end of the analog section
and before the programmable seven band Equalizer. Connections are standard 1/4"
mono jacks.
EFFECT LOOP 2
Effect Loop 2 is a stereo send and return located after the Mix section.
Connections are standard 1/4" mono jacks.
NOTES:
1) When you have a device plugged into the effect loops, keep the Master Overide
switches on the front panel in. To switch the effect in and out, add the Patchbay
algorithm to the preset.
2) You may use the effect send jacks in Loop 2 as "pre-fader" outputs.
3) Use the effect send of Loop 1 as a direct out from the "preamp" section of the
SGX 2000.
MIDI OUT
The MIDI output jack is used to transmit all MIDI control information from the
SGX 2000 to whichever MIDI device is next in the chain. When using the SGX 2000
with an X-15 ULTRAFOOT, connect a MIDI cable to the 5 pin MIDI IN jack on the X15.
MIDI IN
This jack receives the MIDI signal containing the MIDI messages. It enables you
to "talk" to the SGX 2000 from an external source such as an X-15 ULTRAFOOT, a
computer equipped with MIDI ports and associated software or a sequencer. Any
MIDI information sent to the MIDI In jack is echoed to the MIDI Thru jack. When
4
using the SGX 2000 with an X-15 ULTRAFOOT, connect the MIDI cable to the 5 pin
MIDI OUT jack on the X-15.
MIDI THRU
A MIDI Thru jack is provided on the SGX 2000 allowing you to continue a chain of
MIDI devices and let MIDI information pass "thru" the unit to the next one.
Information leaving the Thru jack is a direct copy of the MIDI messages received
at the MIDI In jack. The information is buffered so the integrity of the signal
is not degraded when passing thru.
All MIDI Jacks are standard 5 pin DIN connectors utilizing standard MIDI
connections. No phantom power is present on the unused terminals. ART recommends
these unused terminals remain unused.
PWR OUT
The Power Output jack located at the rear panel provides an OUTPUT voltage of
(+)9 Volts DC. Use this jack to power external devices requiring a wall mount
adapter. The ART X-11 and X-15 can be powered with this power jack. The jack will
accept a female connector with an inside diameter of 2.1mm. Do not plug in any
external power supply such as a wall mount adapter to this jack. Doing this may
cause serious damage to your SGX 2000 or quite possibly yourself!
CONTROLS AND OPERATION
INPUT LEVEL INDICATORS
Three front panel LED's indicate signal level at all times. They are labeled:
PRES, NOM, and CLIP. These LED's display the status of the input signal after it
has passed the Drive control, Digital Processor Input level control, Second Stage
Equalizer and the programmable seven band equalizer. The bottom LED (PRES) is
green and lights when a small amount of signal is seen by the SGX 2000. When you
are operating with a nominal amount of signal the middle yellow LED (NOM) lights.
Clipping is indicated by the top red LED (CLIP).
Adjust the input level to operate the SGX 2000 with the NOM LED lit the majority
of the time. Allow for transients to light the CLIP LED occasionally.
Be sure you are not causing the SGX 2000 to clip with the front end level, analog
effects and equalizer settings.
NOTE: For additional information regarding proper signal levels, refer to the
Level section in Appendix A.
DIGITAL PROCESSOR INPUT LEVEL CONTROL
This slide control adjusts the amount of signal sent to the digital effects
section of the SGX 2000. It is located at the end of the analog effects section
after Loop 1's return. Adjust the control to light the NOM LED the majority of
the time and allow for transients to light the CLIP LED occasionally. When the
slider is set to the far left, signal is still sent through the processor. A
hotter signal from the analog section is permitted when at this setting.
MAINS/XLR OUTPUT LEVEL CONTROL
The Output Level Control adjusts the final effect output level of the SGX 2000.
With the slider fully to the left, there is no output signal present at any of
the output jacks. As you move the slider to the right the output signal level of
the unit increases. When the slider is fully to the right, 100% effect output is
achieved. With this slider you control the level to the Loop 2 effect send and
the XLR outputs, as well as to the final output section.
5
SEVEN SEGMENT DISPLAY
(Red Numeric Display)
The Seven Segment Display keeps you constantly informed of your Preset Number.
Preset numbers are displayed from 001 to 200. When a preset is active the display
is stable. A flashing display indicates you are in Edit Mode and a preset is
ready to be recalled. The right decimal point will light to warn you your
internal lithium battery is low and needs replacing. When using the Tuner, this
display will become your tuning meter.
LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY (LCD)
All information relative to a preset indicated by the Seven Segment Display is
displayed in the LCD. Backlighting of the display is provided for ease of use in
low light situations. The upper sixteen characters mainly display the Preset
Title (name). If no title has been assigned, the display will read "<blank
title>". In some cases other information will be displayed here. The lower
sixteen characters display mainly the number and abbreviated description of
effects stored, effects to be selected or deleted in the preset, and effect
parameter information. Other information may appear here also. The view angle may
be adjusted and is covered in the following section under the UTILITY function.
A user or factory preset would be displayed in the LCD like the following
representation.

LED EFFECT INDICATOR ARRAY
Under the LCD are 16 individual LED's which indicate at all times what effects
are present and active in a preset. When an LED is lit, it indicates which effect
is present and active in the preset you are currently using. A flashing LED
indicates the effect is present in the preset but has been turned "off" from an
external controller such as the X-15 ULTRAFOOT.
6
ROTARY CONTROLS
ENCODER
The rotary Encoder enables you to make fast and accurate changes to presets,
parameters, and values accessable in each preset or function. You will notice the
encoder will turn continuously in either direction. When adjusting values, you
may notice they sometimes "wrap" around to the beginning or end of their range.
Other times when you reach a range end you will find you must go in the opposite
direction to return to the beginning. Each click of the Encoder will change the
parameter value one step.
DRIVE
The Drive control sets the input level to the Preamp section. When the control is
set at 0, no signal is sent to the effects. Range runs from 1 to 11.
SECOND STAGE EQUALIZATION:
The Second Stage Equalizer is a five band cut and boost equalizer that allows you
to fine tune your sound from the front panel at any time without having to
program or edit a preset. Cut and boost levels are plus and minus 12 dB.
THRUST
Centered at 80Hz this controls your bottom end sound.
GROWL
At 160Hz, control the upper end of your lows and lower mids to add some depth to
the signal.
WARMTH
500Hz is the center point of this band. Use it to color and fill in the sound.
CRUNCH
The frequency center is 2.2KHz and allows you enhance the upper midrange.
EDGE
Add just what it says. The 5KHz frequency puts on (or takes away) the edge of the
sound.
TUBE DRIVE CONTOUR
Use this control to vary the harmonic balance sound of the tube. As you turn the
control from left to right the frequency goes from low to high. Accent your sound
at various frequencies to bring out the extra growl, punch, or edge to your tube
distortion sound. The most neutral setting for this control is 12:00.
LEFT/RIGHT BALANCE
The balance control pans the signal left or right to the headphone outputs and
the Line/Amp outputs. It is the last control in the signal chain.
STEREO MASTER OUTPUT
This control sets the final output level heard at the Instrument output,
Headphone outputs, and Line/Amp outputs.

PUSH SWITCHES
MASTER OVERIDE:
EFX LOOP 1
Switches Effect Loop 1 in and out. When the switch is in, the effects loop is
engaged.
EFX LOOP 2
Switches Effect Loop 2 in and out. When the switch is in, the effects loop is
engaged.
NOTE: The switches must be in and you must use the Patch Bay algorithm to insert
and delete outboard gear for use in a preset.
CONTROL BUTTONS
The buttons on the front panel engage or select the different functions of the
SGX 2000. Modes of operation are indicated by LED's. When the LED is lit the
function is active.
Ten of the control buttons serve a dual purpose. The split functions are set
apart by color. While you are in the PRESET MODE (standard operating mode), all
buttons labeled in purple are active. When the EDIT MODE is engaged, the numbered
keypad entry buttons are used for preset effects control and utilities to be
accessed. These functions are labeled in grey.
FUNCTION BUTTONS
The function buttons are those which select a particular function or feature to
be executed or entered for modification. Status of the function button being in
an active or inactive state is displayed by an LED next to the button
identification. The function is active when the LED is lit.
PRESET
The PRESET button, when pressed, engages Preset Mode. Once this button is
pressed, all 200 presets may be accessed by either the keypad or rotary encoder.
When the SGX 2000 is first powered on, you are automatically in Preset Mode.
Audio is being processed constantly while you are scrolling through the presets
with the encoder.
Two methods of Preset selection are used, scanning (with the ENCODER) and keypad
entry. Selecting a preset with the encoder is easy. Scroll through the presets by
turning the knob clockwise to go forward and counterclockwise to go backwards,
the preset will instantly be recalled when you stop. Each click of the encoder
will change the preset value by one.
For instantaneous recall of the preset using the keypad buttons, select the exact
preset number. For example; if you want preset 196, locate the buttons shown on
the front panel labeled 0 through 9 (the numbers are reversed image in purple),
enter 1-9-6, instantly you will see the LCD read title and preset information. If
you have audio hooked up you will notice the preset has been instantly recalled.
If you enter two digits, there will be a slight pause before the preset is
recalled. Entering only one digit will not recall a preset.
8
MIX
Think of the MIX control as a three channel mixer just before the output of the
SGX 2000. To set the MIX you must access and change each parameter individually.
Press the MIX button until the parameter you wish to adjust is highlighted in
brackets i.e. [DGFX] then change the value with the Encoder.

When the MIX button is pressed it engages the programmable mix function and
allows you to set the level of the DRY, DIGITAL EFFECT and ANALOG EFFECT signals
present at the output. The three Mix parameters are displayed as DRY, DGFX and
ANFX. They control the amount of level present at the output of the SGX 2000. For
example, when the Dry value is set at 100%, and the Digital and Analog Effect
values are 0%, the full dry signal and nothing else is present at the output(s).
A fifty/fifty mix is achieved when both the DRY and FX values are equal to each
other.
You do not need to engage the PARAM button to change the Mix parameters. To
disengage the MIX button, press either the Preset, Param or Value button.
DEFAULT VALUES: When you select a blank preset, Both the DGFX and ANFX levels are
set at 75%, and the DRY value is set at 0%.
The programmed Mix parameters may be stored as part of the preset. To save the
values in each preset, press the STORE button.
You may also control the Mix parameters with an external MIDI controller such as
the ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT using the SGX 2000's Performance MIDI.
NOTE: Presets may have varying output levels due to a level control as one of
their parameters. You may vary the individual effect output Level parameter to
directly change the apparent mix of the effect in the preset.
PARAM
When you engage the PARAM button, effect parameters within the current preset may
be viewed. The SGX 2000 automatically enters you into the EDIT mode when you
select the PARAM button. Selection of the parameters may be done with the Encoder
or by pressing the Param button repeatedly.
When you are in MIDI or UTILITY mode, pressing the Param button will allow you to
select the available parameters with the Encoder knob or by pressing the Param
button repeatedly.
While you are editing a preset, the Param button may be used as a cursor left
key. Each time you press the button, the preceeding parameter and value will be
displayed.
9
VALUE
Every displayed parameter value in the SGX 2000 may be changed. When the VALUE
button is engaged, you automatically enter EDIT mode and are allowed to change
the parameter value using the Encoder. Press the STORE button to save any changes
you make.
While you are editing a preset, the Value button may be used as a cursor right
key. Each time you press the button, the next parameter and value will be
displayed.
Press the Value button and turn the Encoder left or right to view effects
contained in a preset. A left or right arrow in the LCD indicates more
information is available for viewing.
PROGRAMMING HINT: Press the Value button to change and view the parameters then
use the Encoder to set the value. This way you don't have to switch between the
Param and Value buttons to edit values.
BYPASS
Engaging the BYPASS button kills the effects signal and "zeroes" (sets the bands
flat) the EQ in the mix passing only dry signal to the outputs. When you first
press the BYPASS button in either operating mode with a preset listed in the LCD,
the display will first read [ **** BYPASS ****], then it will list the preset
name. The LED associated with the button will flash to indicate you are in the
bypass mode. Pressing BYPASS again returns the unit to the ACTIVE mode indicated
by the display [ ****ACTIVE****] for about two seconds and then just displaying
the preset name and effects.
NOTES:
1) If the MIX parameters are programmed DRY = 0% and DG or ANFX = >0% and the
Bypass Level Utility parameter is set to =MIX DRY LEVEL and BYPASS is initiated,
no signal will be present at the outputs.
2) Bypass level is determined by the Bypass Level parameter discussed in the
Utility section.
EDIT MODE
EDIT MODE is engaged when you press the EDIT MODE button. All creation of presets
or preset parameter editing is done while in this mode. Titles, MIDI parameters,
and Utilities are all accessed in Edit Mode. When in Edit Mode, all buttons
associated with grey lettering are active. All the control buttons work as well.
You may access all two hundred presets for modification or use while in Edit
Mode. Edit Mode is automatically entered when you press either the PARAM or VALUE
buttons.
Previewing Presets
You may preview presets while in Edit Mode by engaging the PRESET button. Use the
Encoder to scan through the presets. Only the titles of the presets are shown, so
it is helpful to know the contents. The processed output signal is not affected.
To recall the preset when you are ready, press the RECALL button. Signal is being
processed through the last active preset. The reason for this is so you can set
up for the next preset change when you want it to happen. When you stop scanning,
the preset number in the Seven Segment Display will be flashing. If RECALL is
pressed, the display will stop flashing indicating the preset is now active.

EDIT MODE CONTROL BUTTONS
ENTER
Use the ENTER button when you want to complete an action such as adding an effect
to a preset. When adding an effect there is a [?] after the name, press enter if
you wish to insert this effect into your chain. The prompt [?] (i.e. [ADD
EQUALIZER?]) will appear in the LCD when it is necessary to press Enter to
complete a task.
RECALL
The RECALL button is used to Recall presets while you are in Edit Mode. To Recall
a preset (the Seven Segment Display will be flashing a Preset number), select the
proper Preset and press the RECALL button. If you have been editing the
parameters in a preset and wish to return them all to the original settings,
press the Recall button.
ADD EFFECT
Pressing the ADD EFFECT button once opens the Add Effect function.
To add an effect to a preset, press this button and use the Encoder to select the
effect you want to add to the chain. Turn the Encoder left or right to scan
through your selections. Finalize the ADD EFFECT command (add the effect to the
chain) by pressing the ENTER button. Doing this inserts the effect temporarily in
memory. If audio is passing through the SGX 2000, you will hear the effect when
you press the ENTER button. To make the effect permanent, press the STORE button.
To close the Add Effect function and escape to Edit Mode, press the button once
or press the Edit Mode button.
You can preview the effects you may add to an effect. MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN THE
EDIT MODE, press the ADD EFFECT button once, notice the lower half of the LCD
shows an available effect. The effects displayed as you turn the Encoder are
those available to be added to the effects chain.
It doesn't stop there! There are many sub variables of each effect to be
explored. Right now let's just worry about operation and not the effects
themselves. To simplify matters let's step through an example depicting the
selection of four effects. We will use some of the buttons not yet explained but
doing it this way will make the understanding of the programming much easier. The
control buttons we use now will be defined in detail later in the manual.
Adding Effects to a Preset
When you see text within the [ ] brackets, it is the text as it appears in the
LCD.
-Enter EDIT MODE (press the Grey button).
-Using the Encoder, GOTO preset 151 (the Preset LED should be lit).
-Press the RECALL button [<blank title>, <no effects>].
-Press the ADD EFFECT button once
-Turn the Encoder until you see [ADD:COMPRESSOR?].
-Press ENTER (you have just entered the compressor into the chain), bottom
display reads [1 CMP].
-Press the ADD EFFECT button
-Turn the Encoder until [ADD:REVERB-1?] appears.
-Press ENTER (now the reverb algorithm is entered into the chain, display reads
[2 CMP+REV].
-Press the ADD EFFECT button.
11
-Use the Encoder to select the ACU-ENV-SIM, enter it into the chain. Display
should read [3 CMP+AES+REV].
-Find then add PITCH-TRANS.
*Display reads [4 CMP+AES+PTr→]
*IF YOU WISH TO SAVE THIS CHAIN OF EFFECTS AS A PRESET YOU MUST PRESS STORE NOW.
-Press STORE.
*The effects you have selected are now stored in preset 151.
You may have noticed a not equals sign at the bottom left hand side of the LCD.
The not equals sign indicates the changes have been made to the original values
of the preset. When Store is pressed this character disappears.
REMINDER: You have not set any parameters as of yet. Don't worry, we have
preselected a nominal value for each of the parameters associated with an effect
as a starting point. This provides a user reference to a sound instead of
starting at point zero. We feel it is useful to hear a descriptive set of
parameters so you may tailor them to your own specific sound requirements. We'll
look at these in just a moment as well as making a title for this preset. First,
the DELETE key will be explained.
The ADD EFFECT button is also used in TITLE EDIT Mode to add characters and
spaces to the title.
NOTE: Before you start building your own presets, read the section "Level
Programming Hints for Building Your Own Presets" in Appendix A.
DELETE EFFECT
Pressing the DELETE EFFECT button once opens the Delete Effect function.
To delete an effect from a preset, press this button and use the Encoder to
select the effect you want deleted. Turn the Encoder left or right to scan
through your selections. Finalize the DELETE EFFECT command (delete the effect
from the chain) by pressing the ENTER button. Doing this deletes the effect
temporarily from memory. If audio is passing through the SGX 2000, you will hear
the change when you press the ENTER button. Press the STORE button to make the
change permanent.
To close the Delete Effect function and escape to Edit Mode, press the button
once or press the Edit Mode button.
The DELETE EFFECT button is also used in TITLE EDIT Mode to subtract characters
and spaces from the title.
Deleting Effects From a Preset
When you see text within the [ ] brackets, it is describing the text as it
appears in the LCD.
Recall preset 151.
-Press the EDIT MODE button
-Press the DELETE EFFECT once. [DEL:COMPRESSOR?]
*Do you want to delete the compressor? NO.
-Turn the Encoder knob to the right until you see [DEL:ACU ENV SIM?]
*Let's delete this effect.
-Press ENTER, [3 CMP+PTr+REV].
*The effect has been eliminated but not permanently. You will
audibly hear the sound change when the effect is deleted.
*Press STORE to make this change permanent.
12
-Press STORE now.
With the elimination of an effect, you open up a space to insert
another effect or leave things as they are.
If you press the DELETE EFFECT button and there are no effects in the preset, the
display will read [DEL:NO FX TO DEL].
STORE
Any time you wish to permanently save parameter values in a preset, press the
STORE button. All parameter values you have chosen will be stored into the preset
as well as TITLE, MIX, and ON/OFF Controllers information. When you press the
STORE button the LCD will display [PRESET STORED]. If the phrase [LOCKED/SELECT
LOCATION 111-200] appears don't panic, presets 1 through 110 are factory presets
and though the parameters may be changed, the new values cannot be stored without
first UNLOCKING the presets (see UTILITY section).
TO DELETE A STORED PRESET, thereby releasing its memory to be used again, you
must store a null preset at the preset number you wish to delete. A null preset
consists of a blank title (all spaces, displayed as <blank title>) and no effects
(displayed as <no effects>). Factory Preset 100 is programmed blank to make it
easy to delete stored presets. Presets 111 through 200 are null when you receive
your unit or after a factory reset.
REC/ARM
YOU MUST BE USING A PRESET SET UP
FOR SAMPLING AND IN THE EDIT MODE FOR THIS FUNCTION TO OPERATE
To reset the SGX 2000 to record a new sample, press the REC/ARM button.
While you are using any of the Sampler algorithms you will need to "reset" the
record parameter to be ready to record another sample. The REC/ARM button allows
you to return the Sampler to Record-Ready status. Pressing this button wipes out
the existing sample.
TRIGGER
YOU MUST BE USING A PRESET SET UP
FOR SAMPLING AND IN THE EDIT MODE FOR THIS FUNCTION TO OPERATE
This button allows you to either record or play back a sample of the program
material.
When you first recall a Sampler preset it is usually geared up and ready to
record a sample. Most of the Factory Presets using the Sampler in the SGX 2000
are "record/ready". When the preset is recalled and signal is presented to the
SGX 2000, recording is automatically triggered.
Now you may replay this sample as recorded at any time by pressing the Trigger
button. If the PLAY parameter is set in the SINGLE position and you hit the
button quickly and repeatedly, you will get that stuttering "rap" effect. The
sampled sound can also be played back by a MIDI note on message, using a
footswitch connected to a properly programmed REMOTE jack, or audio trigger.
You may determine the length of the sample time regardless of the Length
parameter's value in the Preset with this button. Say your Length is set for 1.50
seconds and you feel the sample should end at a specific point less than 1.5
seconds. All you need to do is press the TRIGGER button once when you feel the
13
sample should stop. This automatically sets the Length parameter to that amount
of time.
NOTES:
1) You will have to reset the LENGTH
full length is required. To do this,
will restore the LENGTH parameter to
preset has been STORED)
2) You cannot store the audio sample
parameter back to its original value if the
simply hit the RECALL button. Doing this
its original value. (It is assumed the
in the SGX 2000 or dump it through MIDI.
TITLE EDIT
One of the displays to appear in the upper portion of the LCD is the title of the
preset. There is a total of sixteen spaces with the complete ASCII character set
available to use in naming presets.
To either edit the title or create a new one you must first enter the Edit Mode.
To enter the Edit Mode, press the Edit Mode button.
Now press the Title Edit button, [Title Edit] appears in the top half of the
display and a cursor appears in the bottom half.
Press the Value button and use the Encoder to select characters. If the Param
button is pressed, you may move the cursor left and right with the Encoder to
position it for the next character. Pressing the Value or Param buttons will move
the cursor right or left one space at a time. Press the Store button to save your
title.
The title will appear in the upper half of the LCD and any selected effects are
in the lower half. If you wish to change the title, enter the Title Edit Mode and
make the appropriate changes. Don't forget to STORE the new title.
If there are characters you wish to delete in the display use the Encoder to move
the cursor and then press the ADD or DELETE EFFECT button. If you wish to delete
all sixteen characters press the DELETE EFFECT or ADD EFFECT buttons sixteen
times. By doing this you will eliminate any characters and have a blank display
to start with.
To exit or escape from the Title Edit mode, press the TITLE EDIT button once to
escape to EDIT Mode or press the EDIT MODE button.
UTILITY
The Utility button allows you to access the user settable utilities available in
the SGX 2000 and view system information. Listed in this section is information
regarding the variable utility parameters with their default value settings and
SGX 2000 system data.
To change Utilities, first enter Edit Mode then press the Utility button. Once
you are in Utility Mode you may change values by selecting the parameter and then
changing the value. To do this select the parameter you wish to modify with
either the Param or Value buttons. Use the Encoder to change the parameter value.
(Make sure the Value LED is lit)
To view system data, press the Param or Value button until the information you're
looking for appears in the display. Remember the Param and Value buttons act as a
left and right cursor when they are pressed repeatedly.
You do not need to press the STORE button to save Utility parameters, it is done
automatically.
14
To exit Utility Mode, press the Utility button to return to Edit Mode.
PROGRAMMING HINT: Press the Value button to change and view the parameters then
use the Encoder to set the value. This way you don't have to switch between the
Param and Value buttons to edit values.
BYPASS LEVEL
= MIX DRY LEVEL [100%]
You may globally control the level of the Bypass signal when in Bypass Mode. The
Bypass Level Utility parameter overrides whatever "DRY" level is individually set
in each preset. Every time Bypass is engaged, the through signal level will be
whatever this value is set to. The initial default setting is 100%. When the
value is set to [= MIX DRY LEVEL], the DRY level setting (from the Programmable
Mix) of the individual preset will be the signal level when the preset is
bypassed.
REMOTE SWITCH 1 & 2
[= BYPASS ON/OFF]
The REMOTE jacks may be programmed to either Bypass the SGX 2000, access the
Increment or Decrement Preset mode, and Re-Arm or Trigger the Sampler. A
footswitch and any two conductor cable is intended to be used with these jacks.
If you are using an ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT, you can use the Bypass Jack feature on
the X-15 to control one of the SGX 2000's Remote Jacks. A momentary (normally
open) switch should be used in applications other than the X-15's bypass feature.
Use the following chart to determine how the Remote Jacks may be programmed.

Either jack may be programmed for the Bypass feature, each time the footswitch is
activated (hot connected to ground) the BYPASS function is accessed and acts like
the Bypass button on the front panel.
The jacks may also be programmed to allow a footswitch to be used for accessing
either the Trigger or Re-Arm function when using the Sampler program. Either
Remote 1 or Remote 2 can be assigned as the Trigger and Remote 2 may be assigned
as the Re-Arm.
These jacks may also be programmed to increment and decrement through a set of
presets. Remote 1 may be set for incrementing up and Remote 2 may be set for
decrementing down. For decrement program to work, you must program Remote 1 for
increment. You can not program the Remote 2 jack for decrement alone.

Allows the viewing angle of the LCD Display to be adjusted. You may change the
LCD view angle for the best visibility. The angle may be adjusted to maximize
readability of the characters from top, front or under viewing angles. When
viewing from the top, use a higher number. If you are viewing the display
directly from the front, use the middle numbers. Viewing the LCD when the SGX
2000 is above you, adjust the view angle to the lower numbers.
Software Version Level
Displays the software revision level currently installed in the SGX 2000. The
current version as well as the date will be displayed in the LCD. This software
controls the SGX 2000's functions as well as its sounds. For your convenience
write the software version in the space provided on the Introduction page at the
beginning of the manual.
Preset Memory Allocation
MEMORY USED= ##
AVAILABLE= ####
Displays how much user memory has been used and how much user memory is available
for further storage.
This utility informs you how much User Preset Memory has been used or how much
memory there is available for storing presets. When you first access user memory
there are approximately 5000 bytes (5.0 Kbytes) of space available. Each time you
store a preset more space is used up.

When the SGX 2000 is used with an ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT, the two devices "talk" to
each other. In order for the two devices to talk, Enable must be ON. The SGX 2000
enables commands to be received from the X-15 to turn the effects in the preset
on or off.
NOTE: If you are not using the SGX 2000 with an X-15, set the Enable to OFF.
'ENTER' TO EDIT ON/OFF CONTROLLERS
The purpose of being able to edit the ON/OFF controllers is to allow you to
change effect status without an X-15 ULTRAFOOT. You may also change the MIDI
controller number assigned to the effect.
Press the Enter button and you can set up the On/Off status of an effect in a
preset. The effect status is automatically set to On when you first add the
effect to the preset.
If you edit the On/Off status YOU MUST PRESS STORE TO SAVE YOUR CHANGES.

IMPORTANT NOTE For:
RECEIVING Preset and MPT Information
To dump MIDI data into the SGX 2000 from either another SGX 2000 or an external
MIDI device you must make sure that the MIDI channels match. The SGX 2000 will
accept MIDI data at all times regardless of what operating mode it is in.
PERFORMANCE MIDI
[PM]
Performance Midi allows the SGX 2000 to have up to eight of its parameters per
preset controlled simultaneously via MIDI. Selection of the parameter to be
controlled, the actual MIDI controller, and the Low and High value of the
parameter may be programmed from the front panel.
When you are in Preset or Edit Mode, the LCD will inform you of either
Performance MIDI or FX ON/OFF information being received and what is being
changed.
There is also a means to monitor MIDI information being sent to the SGX 2000.
While you are in the PM Mode you can select the MIDI Monitor utility and verify
MIDI data being sent to the device. Refer to the MIDI DataMONITOR section for
additional information.
A table of MIDI controllers can be found in Appendix E, Tables and Charts.
Presets in the SGX 2000 are set up to be controlled by Performance MIDI via the
ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT. See the section "Operating the Multiverb SGX 2000 with the X15 ULTRAFOOT" further on in this manual for more information. Don't let MIDI
scare you. Using Performance MIDI in an ART device is easy. In most cases
(especially with an X-15) you virtually plug in and play. But, if you want to
program, we've made that easy too.
Modification to select the specific values and ranges you want the parameter to
cover is done by normal editing. The number displayed in the upper left corner
represents the MIDI Controller you are working with. Performance MIDI has four
levels of programming information associated with it broken up into 4 screens.
The first screen displays the information to define what parameter the assigned
MIDI controller will control.
The second screen shows which MIDI controller is being used. The LCD will display
the MIDI control number and its description (i.e. MC 4 FOOT CTLR). Incidentally,
19
the default value is MC 4 which happens to be the Left Foot Controller on the X15. The MIDI DataMONITOR may be selected for use in this screen to display MIDI
data being sent.
The third screen displays the LOW value (minimum value) of the parameter's range.
The fourth screen displays the HIGH value (maximum value) of the parameter's
range. High and Low values refer to MIDI controller values. These parameters may
be "swapped" to make the value change in a reverse or opposite direction.
While you are in the first screen you may also view MIDI data. Change the value
until the bottom of the screen displays MIDI DataMONITOR. (turn the Encoder
counterclockwise) You are allowed to change between MIDI controllers on the
device you are sending MIDI data from (keyboards, X-15, etc.) and view the
corresponding data in this screen. The top half of the display will show the
numerical value of the MIDI data being received by the SGX 2000. Displayed in the
bottom half is the actual MIDI controller being used. Use the Value Up or Down
key to change the MIDI controller. When you change the controller, its MIDI data
will be displayed in the top half of the LCD.
DESCRIPTION OF ALGORITHMS
The SGX 2000 offers over seventy effects selections for you to choose from. Each
effect may have several types to select for specifically narrowing down the
particular sound you are looking for. The algorithms are listed in seven
categories in the manual. These are: Analog Effects, Signal Frequency Shaping,
Swept or Modulated Effect, Natural Reverberation, Gated Reverberation, Delay, and
Utility/Level.
There are some digital categories that cannot be combined together. Rather than
tell you which effects cannot be combined, the SGX 2000 automatically selects (or
defaults) to which algorithms may be combined and displays them in the LCD when
you are "ADDing an EFFECT".
All of the analog and digital effects parameters including the Mix Control
parameters are controlable via the X-15. Some parameters were specificly tuned to
be used with foot controllers. Specificly, all compressor output, envelope filter
tuning, and any threshold, attack, release or range parameter and the Distortion
output when using TURBO, or JAZZ TUBES, SOLID WARM or TUBE STACK.
The algorithm name and abbreviation are shown in brackets [ ] under the effect
title i.e. [EQUALIZER], [EQL]. Default settings for each parameter are shown in
brackets [ ] at the end of the Parameter Values i.e. [0].
NOTE: When setting up your own presets, select the digital effect you want most
in your effects chain first. By doing this, you are able to determine what other
effects may be combined with the selected effect.

SLOPE: 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, 10:1, LIMIT, RVRS1, RVRS2 [4:1]
ATTACK: 2, 3, 4, 7, 14, 30, 50ms [4ms]
RELEASE: 200, 300, 350, 500, 750ms, 1, 2 sec [750ms]
OUTPUT: 0 to 100% in 2% increments [94%]
The compressor in the SGX has all the controls you need for dynamics processing.
The Attack automatically adjusts to the audio and you can set it from 2 to
50mSec. Release is also intellegent and adjustable from 200mSec to 2 Sec. Slope
is programmable from 1:1 to Limit. The drive control sets the maximum gain.
Adjust the release time to set the "openness" of the sound. The faster the
release the more the signal is "crushed". Slower (longer) release times give
notes more sustain. Long release times maintain the natural envelope of the input
while a slower release brings up the gain to bring out the neuances at low
levels. Use the Attack to choose the pick attack you need. Short attacks tend to
give a "tight" , well controlled sound. Longer attacks add punch to the source.
Set the final output level of the Compressor with the Output parameter.
NOTES:
1) If you add the compressor and set its' slope to 1:1 you get a programmable
level control on the input of the analog signal chain. This works great as a
variable distortion drive, or volume pedal effect.
2) The Compressor can be re-patched and replace the input signal on the "DRY"
portion of the mix. This is great for getting a compressed guitar mixed with
distorted guitar. Just add the PATCH BAY to the preset and set DRY= POST CMP to
use the compressor as the DRY signal.
EXPANDER
[EXPANDER], [EXP]
Parameters:
RANGE: OFF, 0 to 100% in 2% increments [75%]
RATIO: OFF, 1:1.5, 1:1.8, 1:2, 1:2.5, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5 [1:3]
The expander is an extention of the compressor. (You don't need the Compressor in
the effects chain for the Expander to work) Use the expander to reduce the noise
the compressor may bring up. Adjust the Range control for the audio threshold
level. This level is where the expander will affect the signal. Setting the slope
below 3:1 allows notes to tail off smoothly and still remove noise. Greater
slopes act more like a noise gate, chopping off the noise below the threshold
setting. Since the detector is shared with the compressor, attack and release
time parameters affect the expander performance. Longer attacks mute the initial
attack of a note. Extremly long attacks can sound like a reverse envelope effect
if only the expander is applied.
21
DISTORTION
[DISTORTION], [DST]
Parameters:
DST: OFF, TURBO TUBES, PSYCHO TUBES, OVERDRV TUBE, JAZZ TUBES,
SOLID SUPER, SOLID WARM, TUBE CLEAN, TUBE STACK [TURBO TUBES]
DRIVE: 0 to 100% in 2% increments [50%]
BITE: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 [3]
OUTPUT: 0 to 100% in 2% increments [100%]
The 12AX7 tube used in the SGX 2000 is a twin pentode tube. What this means is
there are essentially two tubes enclosed in one case. We use these two tubes
together to produce different types of overdrive and distortion. There are four
separate solid state circuits used to create an overdrive or distortion
algorithm. In all, there are eight different distortion algorithms to choose
from. Two are tube only, these two algorithms are "Overdrive Tube" (overdrv tube)
and "Tube Clean". Two are solid state only and are called "Jazz Tubes" and "Solid
Warm". The four stacked versions of tube and solid state together are: "Turbo
Tubes", Psyco Tubes", "Solid Super", and "Tube Stack". Use the Drive parameter to
adjust the amount of gain used to drive either the tube or solid state circuitry.
As you increase the drive, you increase the amount of distortion. The Bite
parameter allows you to add presence and high end to the distortion. Output sets
the final output level of the distortion circuit.
NOTES:
1) The Tube Drive Contour control on the front panel does not do anything when a
tube distortion is not part of the effect chain.
2) The Bite parameter of the distortion effect does not do anything when a tube
only distortion is present in the effects chain.
3) You may also use the DRIVE control on the front panel of the SGX 2000 to
adjust the amount of saturation in the distortion.
4) Use the Tube CONTOUR control to adjust the Response/frequency/characteristic
sound of the tube.
HARMONIC EXCITER
[HAR-EXCITER], [EXC]
Parameter:
RANGE: OFF to 100% in 3% increments [34%]
Use the Harmonic Exciter when you want to enhance or add life to an instrument
and add clarity to vocals in a mix. As you turn the Range parameter up, the
effect the exciter has on the signal increases.
The exciter in the SGX 2000 is integrated within the distortion section. Located
between the tube and solid state distortions circuits, different distortion types
are enhanced in extraordinary ways. Applied to Turbo Tubes for instance, it adds
thickness to distortion. It acts like a "harmonic superdrive" control with Solid
Super. Add it with Solid Warm type and it brings out the growl of the distortion.
22
ENVELOPE FILTER
[ENVLP FILTER], [ENV]
Parameters:
TYPE: = ULTRA, SUPER, MEDIUM, NARROW, X15 SWP, RVRS LO, RVRS HI, OFF [ULTRA]
THRESH: = 0 to 100% in 3% increments [90%]
ATTACK: = 360, 180, 120, 80, 50, 40, 30ms [40ms]
TUNE = 120 to 3200Hz (64 steps) [1079 Hz]
The Envelope Filter algorithm provides seven filter sweep ranges producing a
variety of WAH WAH effect sounds sweeping from low to high and high to low. Set
the Type to select the sweep width needed. Ultra has an extremely wide range,
Super a standard sweep, Medium a little less and Narrow for a tight frequency
range. When you select the X15 Swp, the SGX is to be controlled by the Ultrafoot.
The RVRS settings sweep from high frequency to low frequency. The HI is a wide
sweep and the LO is a narrow sweep. Set the Threshold parameter to trigger the
sweep. Attack sets how fast the filter responds to playing. Adjust your
frequency sweep window with the Tune parameter.
NOTES:
1) The actual input level after the Drive control is used to trigger the envelope
filter.
2) Using a Distortion with the Envelope Filter adds some harmonic interaction to
the sound.
3) The release time is fixed at 200ms.
4) If you use the X-15 Ultrafoot, you must assign a Performance MIDI controller
to the Threshold parameter.
NOISE GATE
[NOISE GATE], [NGT]
Parameter:
RANGE = OFF to 100% in 3% increments [50%]
The Noise Gate is located last in the analog effects chain. Its one parameter,
Range, sets the threshold point of when the gate kicks in, shutting off the
signal. As the Range parameter value increases, the SGX 2000 is allowed to gate
off higher signal levels.
NOTE:
The Noise Gate uses the input signal level to determine if it is opened or
closed.
SIGNAL FREQUENCY SHAPING ALGORITHMS
EQUALIZER (SEVEN BAND EQUALIZER)

the Equalizer to change the curve of the signal before it is sent to the digital
effects.

ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT SIMULATOR
[ACU-ENV-SIM], [AES]
Parameter:
OFF, DEAD ROOM, HEAVY CARPET, WOOD/RUG MIX, DRAPE/CARPET,
WOOD + TILE, PEWS/PEOPLE, WOOD BAFFLES, LT FLOOR RUG, CEILING DRAPE, STONE
CEILING, WALL DRAPES, NATURAL WOOD, OPEN AMBNCE [OFF]
The Acoustic Environment Simulator (AES) allows you to simulate adding in baffles
or sound absorption materials to alter the high end response of your signal. Of
course this is a logical as well as necessary option, the SGX 2000 reproduces
sound to 20KHz, well above normal natural ambiance.
Better than an equalizer, the AES program actually knocks out frequencies over
the entire spectrum, simulating real world acoustics. AES lets you warm up a room
or hall, deaden drums, soften a vocal, sizzle your ears off with presence, or
just make your material sound natural.
NOTE: When using AES alone, be sure to control its output level in the Mix with
the ANFX parameter. Due to its location in the signal chain, if you are only
using AES and no digital effects you must use this parameter to bring out the
simulations at the output.

LOW PASS FILTER
[LOW-PASS], [LPF]
Parameter:
HF-CUT: = THRU, 17.8K, 15.8K, 14.1K, 12.6K, 11.2K, 10.0K, 8.91K, 7.94K, 7.08K,

PITCH-TRANSPOSER
[PITCH-TRANS], [PTr]
Parameters:
:TYPE= OFF, SMOOTH, NORMAL, QUICK [SMOOTH]
:PITCH = (-)12 to (+)12 half steps in 1 half step increments [0]
:FINE = (-)4.00 to (+)4.00 half steps in 0.06 (six cents) increments [0.00]
:BASE KEY = OFF, 1 through 127 (key note on) [OFF]
:REGENeration = 0 to 100 percent in % increments [0%]
:LEVEL = 0 to 100 percent level in % increments [100%]
Pitch Transposing or pitch shifting can be used to develop helpful second
harmonies or other effects for vocals, instruments and even mixed material.
There are three "types" of pitch transposing to choose from in the SGX 2000,
Smooth, Normal and Quick. Smooth relates directly to processing and splicing the
signal more slowly, resulting in a cleaner more precise sound. Use the Smooth
setting when you are shifting pitch more than a fifth with lower frequency inputs
such as the low strings on a guitar. Normal should be used for virtually all
other applications of pitch shifting. There is a little less delay than the
Smooth setting and qualitive processing is achieved.
When you select the Quick setting, a shorter delay time is used causing faster
splicing.
Generally you should use the Normal Type for most applications. If you encounter
problems relating to delay time, use the Quick Type and if detuning becomes a
problem, use the Smooth Type.
The PITCH control lets you set the range of pitch change in half steps. The FINE
parameter lets you adjust the pitch in 6 cent intervals. Use the fine tune
parameter to create or adjust micro pitch shifting or fat chorusing effects.
REGENeration is useful when you stack the Pitch Transposer with the MONO DDL
algorithm. Each time a repeat is done it is shifted up or down by the pitch
selected.
The Base Key parameter should be used when triggering the Pitch Transposer from a
MIDI keyboard. The amount of pitch shift may be set by MIDI Note On messages. The
values selected in the Base Key parameter correspond to the MIDI Key Number.
Example: BASE KEY = 60, (= middle C) if a D above middle C is played, the shift
amount will be set to (2). If base key is set to OFF, Note On messages will not
affect pitch.
25
SWEPT OR MODULATED EFFECT ALGORITHMS
FLANGER
[FLANGER], [FLA]
Parameters:
:TYPE= FLANGER OFF, POST; REVERB, INV L, INV R, INV L+R,
PRE; REVERB, INV L, INV R, INV L+R [POST REVERB]
:WIDTH= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [71%]
:SPEED= .04Hz to 27.3Hz [0.84Hz]
:REGENeration= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [76%]
:LEVEL= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
A wide range of flanging effects may be created with the SGX 2000. Normal and
inverted flanging is available to you. An inverted flanger type reverses
(inverts) one output from the other. The inverted types are listed as INV L and
R, where L and R are Left and Right.
The base delay of the Flanger is set and the sweep WIDTH and SPEED is user
controlled. REGENeration may be adjusted to vary the "strength" of the processed
signal. The output level of the FLANGER may be adjusted to control it's "depth"
in the preset. When the Flanger TYPE= POST the flanger is positioned last in the
chain. This is to assure that maximum effect and presence is maintained in all
effects combinations. Using Flanger TYPE= PRE positions the FLANGER in parallel
with any Reverb or DDL effect. By positioning the Flanger like this, the
processed signal is not delayed or reverberated before it is flanged.
CHORUS
[CHORUS], [CHO]
Parameters:
:TYPE= OFF, POST, PRE, [POST]
:WIDTH= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [34%]
:SPEED= .04Hz to 27.3Hz [0.84hZ]
:DELAY= 0 to 47ms in 1 ms increments [30]
:LEVEL= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
Chorus may be used to thicken or sweeten the final processed sound. It is created
by sweeping a comb filter through a base delay time and generally using between a
30 to 60 percent mix between the dry and wet signal. The base delay time plays
an important role in the perception of the effect. Longer base delays are more
preferable to give a deep rich sound to vocals and guitars, while shorter base
delays are used for more delicate enhancement purposes. The width plays an
important role in the range of perceived effect and is best used in conjunction
with the speed parameter. Like the FLANGER, the effect type may either be POST or
PRE located in relation to reverb or delay. The output level of the CHORUS may be
adjusted to control it's "depth" in the preset.
26
PANNER
[PANNER], [PAN]
Parameters:
:MOD % =0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
:SPEED= .04Hz to 27.3Hz [2.16Hz]
MIDI-PAN
[MPN]
Parameter:
POSITN = 0 to 127 in 1 step increments [64]
Panning automatically pans the audio image from the left to the right in the
stereo sound field. By varying the MODulation, you adjust the "depth" into the
stereo field (how far left and right you go). The SPEED merely controls the rate
at which you do so.
When you choose the Panner, the signal is automatically panned by the SGX 2000
from left to right at a depth and speed you set. Choosing the MIDI-PAN allows you
to assign a MIDI Controller to change the signal's position with an Expression
Pedal or other MIDI device.
NOTES:
1) When using the panner, you should always set your MIX DRY level to 0%. This
ensures complete signal panning from left to right (full right = full signal...
no signal left and vice versa).
2) When you use the Panner, make sure you are using both Line outputs or the
Headphone outputs, if you're using only one Line output or the Instrument output
you'll get NO EFFECT!, because the two outputs are summed canceling the effect.
TREMOLO
[TREMOLO], [TRM]
Parameters:
:MOD % =0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
:SPEED= .04Hz to 27.3Hz [2.16Hz]
Tremolo creates an amplitude modulating effect at the output. The actual output
signal level is being cut in and out at a certain rate. Use the MOD parameter to
control the depth of the Tremolo. Re-create the effect found on vintage as well
as current guitar amplifiers.
NATURAL REVERBERATION ALGORITHMS

REVERB-3
[REVERB-3], [REV]
Parameters:
:TYPE= HALL-3, ROOM-3, PLATE-3, VOCAL-3, OFF
(REVERB-1 and REVERB-2 TYPEs are also available) [HALL-3]
:IN = PRE DDL, POST DDL [PRE DDL]:DECAY = 0 to 25 seconds in varying increments
[2.4s]
:HFDAMP= 0 to 50 percent in % increments [14%]
:POSITN= FRONT to REAR in % increments [67%]
:DIFFUS= 40 to 100 percent in four % increments [100%]
:LEVEL = 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
REVERB-1 algorithms are best used when you are using multiple effects. They have
less density and are more suited to effects where the reverb is not the main
effect but is used for presence.
REVERB-2 algorithms use more delay and have a higher complexity than the REVERB1. REVERB-3 algorithms are the most complex and dense. Always use REVERB-3 when
building "reverb only" programs.
The TYPEs of reverb are what make up the reverberant space. The smallest space is
the Plate. Generally this reverberant sound is used for tight and harsh sounding
reverb. Room and Vocal types are the next size spaces. They tend to be a little
looser allowing the sound to "bounce" around more adding color to the sound. The
Hall types are the largest allowing you to fill in the spaces with reflections
and build up density.
Once you decide what type of space is required, the length of DECAY is selected.
Generally the size of the space is proportional to the time it takes the signal
to decay. The larger the space, the longer the decay. Don't stick to this rule!
Many quality sounds are made by bending the rules and allowing for creativity.
Since reverberant spaces tend to boost high frequencies the High Frequency
Damping (HFDAMP) parameter allows you to damp out frequencies as natural damping
would in a reverberant space. Putting up baffles, carpeting, drapes or wood in
the space is simulated. The higher the value, the more damping.
Position (POSITN) puts you as a listener where you would hear the sound if you
were in the space. Front positions you closest to the initial signal so you here
more 1st reflections and the reverberant decay is in the background. As you
position yourself more towards the Rear, you "mix" the initial sound to
reverberant sound ratio. At the Rear of the space, you hear the signal decay with
all the reflections and very little initial sound.
28
Diffusion (DIFFUS) is how much the sound bounces around in the space. The lower
diffusion % is looser and the smoothest at 100%.
LEVEL adjusts the effect level of the preset.
GATED REVERBERATION ALGORITHMS
GATE-VERB-1

:DECAY = 0.05 to 0.40 seconds in 5 ms increments [0.40s]

GATE-VERB-3
[GATE-VERB-3], [GAT]
Gated Reverb
Parameters:
:TYPE= SLOPE-3, FLAT-3, RVRS-3A, RVRS-3B
[SLOPE-3]
:DECAY = 0.05 to 0.40 seconds in 5 ms increments [0.40
:DIFFUS= 60 to 100 percent in four increments of 20% [100%]
:LEVEL = 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
Both GATE-VERB-1 and GATE-VERB-2 have forward and reverse gated reverb algorithms
which are not quite as dense or complex as those found in the GATE- VERB-3
algorithms. For an equal decay, GATE-VERB-2 is denser than GATE-VERB-1. The
decay times found in GATE-VERB-2 are longer. When used in a stack of effects
these gated sounds will fill in nicely. If you choose to use these effects alone,
they will be loose and moderately sparse. By varying the amount of diffusion you
directly affect the tightness (or looseness) of the sound. High diffusion equates
to a tighter effect.
GATE-VERB-3 algorithms are the most complex and dense. Always use GATE-VERB-3
when building "reverb only" programs.The difference between normal reverb decays
and decays when a gated program is the normal decay gradually fades into nothing
while the gated decay ends in an abrupt manner. The most interesting gated
program is the flat setting. Here there is no decay but the equivalent of a short
burst of sound.

:LEVEL= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
*Total delay possible is 1150ms
There are three levels of tapped delays in the SGX 2000. These are what we call
Even (E), Shortened (S), and Lengthened (L). (1's are Even, 2's are Shortened,
3's are Lengthened) Even means that the delay taps are at evenly spaced
intervals. Shortened means that as the taps approach the set delay, the intervals
are closer together. As the taps approach the set delay in the Lengthened mode
they are farther apart. In the types you will see an [m] and an [s], the [m]
means mono and the [s] signifies stereo. The mono tapped delay has its left and
right taps at the same delay points where the stereo taps are staggered. When
using the stereo tapped delays the first right tap is half the delay time before
the first left tap.

flat linear response. Reverse increases in amplitude exponentially as
approaches the end. Forward exponentially decreases in amplitude as
approaches its end point.
TYPE 3 taps are dense and full. Use the longer tapped delay programs to add some
expansiveness to short reverb patches. Use the longer tapped delays especially
the Sloped algorithms to create a fundamental front end reverb.

REGEN-DDL-S
[REGEN-DDL-S], [DDL]
Regenerated Digital Delay - Short
Parameters:

*Total delay possible is 1010ms.
Since this delay algorithm has the characteristic of being in parallel with a
reverb program if used with one, it can be used to add a small amount of depth,
or wrap-around effect to the sound. A "hard reverb" effect may be achieved by
using longer delay and a moderate amount of regeneration. Tonal sounding drones
may be found using short delay and large amounts of regeneration.

STEREO-DDL-L
[STREO-DDL-L], [DDL]
Stereo Digital Delay - Long
Parameters:
:DLY-L=* 0 to 1300ms [250ms]
:L-FINE* = 0 to 50 ms in 1 ms increments [0ms]
:DLY-R* = 0 to 1300ms [125ms]

increments:5ms;0-350, 10ms;350-700
20ms;700-1000, 50ms;1000-1300
:REGEN= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [45%]
:HFDAMP= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [0%]
:LEVEL= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
*Total possible delay is 1350ms
You can split image or create alternating regenerative patterns between the left
and right outputs using Stereo Digital Delay. The ability to set separate delay
times for each channel enables you to do this. When used in conjunction with the
Flanger, Chorus or Panner, spatial effects are the result. Regeneration is
derived from the left channel.
When longer delay times are needed, use the STREO-DDL-L algorithm. Set both Left
and Right Delay times at 1300 ms for maximum delay output with no separation. You
may also operate this effect in mono.

BASE KEY=OFF, 1 through 127 (key note on) [OFF]
LEVEL= 0 to 100 percent in % increments [100%]
Status always informs you of the state the Sampler is in. After a sample has been
taken, status is Idle waiting either to be Re-Armed or played.
Record lets you choose how you want to sample the sound. Auto is signal
activated, the sampler will start recording as soon as signal is applied to the
SGX 2000 and the GREEN LED is lit. Manual is operator activated, the sampler will
start recording when you press the trigger button or use a footswitch with the
Remote jack. MIDI is MIDI activated, the Sampler will start recording when the
SGX 2000 receives any Note On message.
Play lets you select how the sample is played back when triggered. Single plays
back once per trigger, Repeat keeps repeating the sample until triggered again,
and MIDI plays back when any Note On message is received. Punchin lets you insert
a sample into the current signal stream. When you trigger the sample, the current
signal is cut out and only the sample is heard. If you have a preset set up with
the Punchin value, set your Dry level in the Mix to 0%. Audio triggers the
Sampler to playback when the YELLOW LED is lit. Before the sample can be
retriggered the YELLOW LED must go out.
Length is the amount of time you have to record (and playback) a sample. If you
find you've recorded to much, you may eliminate the unwanted end signal by
reducing the Length parameter.
Start allows you to trim the beginning of the sample removing annoying clicks,
unwanted sample material or dead space.
Level sets the amount of signal level coming out of the Sampler.
Use the Short Sampler, [SAMPLER-S] when you want to combine a sampled sound with
reverb. The algorithms from reverb groups one and two are available. Every time
the sample is played back it will be subjected to the reverb parameters you have
set.
The Long Sampler [SAMPLER-L] should be used when you require one and a half
seconds of sampling time.
You should use the Sampler with Pitch Transposer [SAMPLER+PTr] algorithm when you
want to shift the pitch of the sample during playback. Each time the sample is
played back it will be subjected to the pitch parameters set.
33
NOTES:
1) The Low Pass filter [LPF] acts as a high frequency rolloff to the signal
before it is sampled and may be added to all three algorithm choices.
2) You may program the Remote Jacks to access the Trigger and Re-Arm feature.
3) BASE KEY in the SAMPLER + PTr algorithm has no effect on triggering samples.
4) You cannot store an audio sample.
5) See APPENDIX A, for more information regarding the SAMPLER.
SYSTEM CONTROL/LEVEL ALGORITHMS
PATCH BAY
[PATCH BAY],
Parameters:
DRY = INPUT,
LOOP1 = OUT,
LOOP2 = OUT,
[PBY]
POST CMP [INPUT]
IN [IN]
IN [IN]
Use the Patch Bay to route the input "dry" signal either pre or post compressor
to the programmable Mix control. When set to Input, only "dry" signal taken
directly after the Drive control is sent to the Programmable Mix [DRY] parameter.
When set to Post CMP, the signal first passes through the compressor and then
sent to the Programmable Mix [DRY] parameter.
To insert the Effects Loops into the preset, add the Patchbay. By adding the
Patchbay, you control whether the effect plugged into the effects loop is "in" or
"out" when the preset is selected. Setting the Loop = to IN allows the effect to
be in when the preset is recalled. You may assign a MIDI controller to change the
value between IN and OUT.
NOTE: The Master Overide switches on the front panel must be "In" for the Loops
to be active in a preset.
DIGITAL CONTOUR
[DIG CONTOUR], [DGC]
Parameters:
HI/LO SPLIT, HIGH to DGFX, LOW to ANFX, BYPASS [BYPASS]
TUNING = 110Hz, 160Hz, 230Hz, 350Hz, 560Hz, 1KHz, 2KHz [350Hz]
Adding Digital Contour to a preset allows you to control how the audio signal is
split into separate low and high frequency paths. Use this to keep your sound
distinct rather than loosing or burying it. When using Compression, Distortion,
EQ, Reverb, and Swept effects, it's a good idea to include the Digital Contour
algorithm. Set the Tuning parameter to select the crossover point of the signal.
[HI/LO SPLIT] sends only the low frequency material to the analog Mix Output and
the high frequency to the digital effects. If you are using distortion, this will
give your lower end a ballsy sound and keep your digital effects from being
muddled.
[HIGH to DGFX] sends just the high frequency material to the digital effects.
This keeps unwanted low frequency material from muddying up your digital effects.
[LOW to ANFX] sends only the low frequency material to the analog Mix Output.
Sending the higher frequency signal material to the digital effects such as
reverb or delay will keep the decays crisp and clean sounding.
34
PROGRAMMABLE LEVEL
[PROGR LEVEL], [LVL]
Parameter:
MASTER = 0 to 100% in 2% increments
[93]
By adding Programmable Level to the effects chain, you are capable of setting the
master output level of each individual preset easily. The Programmable Level
algorithm controls the amount of signal level after the Digital Processor Input
slider and before the Digital Contour.
TUNER
[TUNER], [TNR]
Parameters:
TYPE = BASS, GUITAR [GUITAR]
REFRNC (guitar) = OFF, E 82, A 110, D 147, G 196, B 247, E 330, A 440, AUTO [OFF]
(bass) = OFF, B 31, E 41, A 55, D 73, G 98, C 131, A 440, AUTO [OFF]
DETUNE = (-)2.00 to (+)2.00 in 0.04 (four cent) intervals [0.00]
LEVEL = 0 to 100% in 2% increments [0%]
Type allows you to choose what instrument you are going to tune. There are two
choices, Bass and Guitar. When you choose an instrument, the Reference frequency
(Refrnc) parameter defaults to either Guitar or Bass tuning frequencies. The
strings start low and go high. The frequency A 440 is included for tuning
keyboards, or checking the intonation of your neck. When you select Refrnc to
equal Off, it allows you to access the preset and display the preset number
instead of [- - -]. The Tuner at this point is inactive, you must change the
Refrnc parameter to a string value to activate the Tuner. When you set the Refrnc
parameter to Auto, tuning is simplified even more. Auto enables the SGX 2000 to
know which string you are trying to tune and automatically switch the Reference
parameter to the correct string/frequency. The Auto range has a frequency window
of 2.5 halfsteps.
Detune will let you change the reference frequency A 440 plus or minus 2 half
steps. This allows you to detune up to 50Hz. As a rule of thumb 4 cents,
displayed as [0.04] equals 1Hz. So, to detune A440 to A435 you would set the
Detune parameter to [-0.20]. To detune a full half step, set the Detune parameter
to = [1.00] (plus or minus). Level sets the signal output level of the Tuner in a
preset.
NOTES:
1) If you do not wish anyone to hear you tune up when you realize you're out of
tune, set the Tuner Level and the ANFX level of the Mix to [0%] in the preset.
2) If you want signal to pass through the tuner, set the Tuner Level and the ANFX
Level to the desired output level.
The tuner is designed to respond to open string tuning only, no harmonics. For
best results, tune your guitar in the position you will be playing in. Plucking
the string at or near the 12th fret will help the tuner lock on to the signal.
3) Accuracy of the SGX 2000 Tuner is better than .5 cents!
4) 100 cents = 1 semitone = 1 halfstep.
Factory Preset 113 [GUITAR TUNER X15] is set up to work instantly with an X-15 to
tune a guitar. Select preset 113 and use the left pedal to select the string you
wish to tune. If you do not have an X-15, enter Edit mode and press the Value
button. Select which string you wish to tune with the Encoder.
Select preset 005 [AUTO GUITAR TUNER] for quick tuning while on stage. This
preset is set up to auto detect which string you want tuned.
35
How to use the Tuner:
Watch the LED window display: With the REFRNC parameter set to the string you
wish to tune, pluck the string. Give the unit a chance to "lock-on" to the
signal, the unit will make frequency measurements as long as the green Pres LED
is lit. After each pluck of the string, allow the unit to lock-on to the signal
before attempting continued tuning. The most accurate tuning will be obtained by
adjusting the string after it has "sung" for some time while dying out.
If insufficient audio level prevents the unit from making measurements the LED
window will look like Display 1 .
When you are more than a half step (100 cents) sharp or flat the LED window will
look like Display 2 or 3.
Within 100 cents of the correct pitch, the LED window displays the number of
cents sharp or flat in the rightmost 2 digits. See Display 4 and 5.
When you are within 2 cents (sharp or flat) of the correct pitch, your LED window
will look like Display 6. The two digits may be 00, 01, or 02 and you'll be in
tune. As long as the ¼ is displayed, you're in tune.

MIDI DATA MONITOR
The SGX 2000 has 2 MIDI features collectively called "MIDI DATA MONITORing".
These include the Performance MIDI(tm) Data Monitor, referred to as [DM] and the
MIDI EVENT MONITOR, referred to as [MEM].
PERFORMANCE MIDI Data Monitor [DM]
This Data Monitor allows a user, while viewing a Performance MIDI (PM)
controller's definition under Edit Mode, to see the data associated with the MIDI
event selected to control an effect's parameter unaltered. A user having selected
MOD WHEEL to control reverb decay time can optionally see the MOD WHEEL values
themselves without having it affect reverb decay time. This feature serves as a
MIDI setup debugging tool. You can determine if the MOD WHEEL is in fact being
seen by the unit.
Enter DM Mode while in Edit Mode, press the Param button and go to the screen
displaying [#1 IS CONTROLING] in the top half. Press the Value button, and turn
the Encoder left until the display reads [MIDI dataMONITOR] on the bottom. Press
the Param button and move the Encoder one click to the right, the screen defines
the MIDI controller used in the preset. Move the Encoder one click to the right,
[#n DATA IS
] is displayed. This line will show the actual data value
associated with the selected MIDI event, as they are received. The space after
"DATA IS" stays blank until the unit receives the selected event. The bottom line
is identical to the 2nd window bottom line and you are able to select MIDI events
in this window by using the Value button and the Encoder, without having to go
back to the 2nd window. Whenever a new MIDI event is selected under DM, the
portion of the window that displays the actual value is blanked until the new
MIDI event data is received.

MIDI EVENT MONITOR [MEM]
The MIDI EVENT data MONITORING MODE (MEM) feature is one of the parameters
available while in MIDI Mode. This mode shows the user an "English-ed" version of
certain MIDI events as they occur, regardless of MIDI channel. The information
displayed shows the type of MIDI event and its attributes with a choice of
display formats, called "English-ed" or "Raw Data". Each of these formats offers
a choice of display numeric info in either decimal or hexadecimal (base 16, the
format for experienced MIDI users).To select the Event Monitor, enter Edit Mode
then MIDI Mode. Press the Param button and use the Encoder to select [MIDI EVENT
data MONITORING MODE].

MEM does NOT monitor:
System Exclusive messages
Channel Mode messages (All Notes Off etc.)
Real Time messages (Timing Clock)
System Common messages (MIDI Time Code)
Each MIDI event is displayed depending on which display mode is active. The
default display mode is "English-ed" decimal. Using the VALUE Up/Down keys will
move through the two display modes (with two numeric formats each). The latest
event is reformatted accordingly. In the case of NOTE ON/OFF and POLYPHONIC
AFTERTOUCH events, the musical note associated with the event has its note name
displayed next to the numeric value of the note.

NOTES:
1) The only accidental displayed is the sharp, "#".
2) PROGRAM CHANGE events: The actual program number specified in the event is a
0-origin number and will be displayed as such, consistent with the unit's display
of program numbers under the MIDI PROGRAM TABLE MIDI menu item. A MIDI program
change event to program #5 is actually a message to go to (excluding mapping via
MIDI PROGRAM TABLE) to program #6!
3) MIDI CHANNEL#s: The display "CHnn" (where "nn" is the channel# associated with
a particular MIDI event) shows the channel# as a 1-origin number. A MIDI event
with a channel# value of 2 will display as "CH03"!
39
4) If, while in MEM mode, the unit is enabled to respond to PROGRAM CHANGE events
(and those events occur on the same channel on which the unit is listening) and
such an event occurs which causes the unit to switch to a preset that has the
SAMPLER effect, a message may display for a few moments indicating that the
SAMPLER is RECORD-READY. When this message (or others) is finished, the display
will return to the most recent event and display mode.
MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION
About the Presets
The presets of the SGX-2000 are grouped together for various sounds and
applications. Locations 1 thru 21 are set up for instant use with a guitar, try
presets 22 thru 30 with an X-15 ULTRAFOOT and guitar for foot control of the
effects. Check out presets 31 thru 45 for delay effects such as chorus and
flange. Presets 46 thru 49 have no digital effects, just raw tube and solid state
power. The rest of the presets are a collection of killer and clean sounds,
special effects, and a few things totally out of this world!
The presets were all configured with all front panel controls at center value.
Battery Backup
When power is terminated to the SGX 2000, the edited MPT as well as the last
preset used and the MIDI Channel will be active when the unit is next powered up.
Memory retention is expected to last four years. Should you encounter memory
loss, contact our service department.
Low Battery Indicator
The life of the internal lithium battery is approximately four years. If you see
the right decimal point illuminated in the seven segment display, it is
indicating the voltage of the lithium battery is low.
Software Revision Level
There is a way to correctly identify the software version residing in the unit.
While in Edit Mode, press the Utility button, then press the Param button. Turn
the Encoder until the current version as well as the date is displayed in the
LCD. The SGX 2000's software is contained in a socketed EPROM. This software
controls the SGX 2000's functions as well as its sounds.
User Registration Card
Be sure to fill out the USER REGISTRATION CARD with this manual and send it in to
our Customer Service Department. Doing this will insure that you are notified of
important information regarding your SGX 2000. Please be sure to write in your
serial number.
Factory Reset
There is a Factory Reset sequence which will reinitialize the SGX 2000 to ALL of
its original values. Be sure you have either downloaded or kept a written record
of the Presets since they will be eliminated. To perform a Factory Reset, press
and hold the PRESET, 0/ENTER, and 4/MIDI buttons simultaneously.
Other Means of Bypassing the SGX 2000
Bypassing the unit via MIDI may be done by easily. Since the SGX 2000 has the
capability of MIDI BYPASS, all you need to send is an on/off control message. The
SGX 2000 bypass default setting is MIDI Controller # 84.
40
X-15
If you are using your SGX 2000 with the ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT, refer to APPENDIX G
in this manual or to the X-15 manual for any detailed information you may need.
Customer Service
You may contact ART's Customer Service Department between the hours of 9:00 AM
and 4:00 PM Eastern Time Monday through Friday. The Customer Service Department
will answer technical questions about ART products and provide information
concerning service (in the unlikely event you need it).

APPENDIX A
HELPFUL HINTS
Building Your Own Presets
Building presets is easy, really. Don't let all those effects possibilities scare
you. What we suggest is to start by modifying existing presets. By doing this,
you'll become familiar with how presets are built, what's in them and most
importantly the level settings. Don't forget, one of the most important parts of
the preset are the Mix parameters. Find a few presets that initially sound
usefull to you. Copy these presets to a block of blank locations. (i.e. start at
preset 130 and work up) Press the Value button and use the Encoder to view the
effects. Or, press the Param button and use the Encoder to view the parameters
and their values.
To modify the preset change the values you think should be different or wonder
about the difference between "types" (distortion, slope, reverb, etc.). To change
a value, press the Value button until the parameter you wish to change is
displayed in the LCD. Use the Encoder to change the value.
To add or delete effects from the preset, press the Add or Delete Effect button
and use the Encoder to make your selection. Press the Enter button to finalize
the command.
When you're done press the Store button to save your changes. Don't forget to
give your preset a name of it's own. You can name it anything, but, a title
describing the sound of the preset will help you remember what it's going to be
used for. Press the Title Edit button while the Edit Mode LED is lit to change
the name.
If you need more information about the buttons and their use, check the Table of
Contents for their location and go to that section in the manual.
Level Programming Hints When Building Your Own Presets
The SGX is capable of an incredible range of effects. One of the reasons is the
fact that every effect is strong enough to stand by itself. Combining effects is
one of the most powerful facets of the SGX. In combining effects you can
mistakenly amplify the raw noise of a guitar to unnecessarily high levels. This
is where you can get into trouble.
Constructing presets for the SGX is very easy. You simply add effects, set the
mix and you have usable presets. The difference between usable and great presets
is in the tweaking of parameters and a few design insights.
Here are some recommendations for things to try:
1) Keep the Input Drive control up as far as it will go without clipping the
unit. This will optimize your guitar to the SGX.
2) Make sure
occasionally
the level is
Level effect
the NOM LED (yellow) is lit while playing. The Clip LED may
light. If the NOMinal LED is not lit, the unit may sound noisy. If
too low, increase the Compressor Output or add the Programmable
and set it to 100%.
3) Whenever you add an effect that has gain (ie. compressor or distortion), add
the Expander first and if the noise is still high, add the Noise Gate also.
43
4) Limit the maximum gain in a preset. If you add compressor and distortion, you
can have as much as 90dB of gain! This will bring up the noise of the guitar to
ear shattering levels. If you are going for the effect of a distorted, compressed
signal, back off on distortion drive to less than 50%. This will provide the
same effect and less noise.
5) Set the Programmable EQ ([EQL]) for the overall EQ curve for the preset. Use
the Second Stage EQ (front panel knobs)to fine tune these settings. Keep the
boost/cut below 6dB. Limit the use of 10KHz boost since this brings up noise, and
not many harmonics are present here. If you can, trade off 10KHz boost for 4KHz
boost. Reduce boost in the EQ sections. Instead of boosting level in bands, use
cut in adjacent bands instead, it works just as well!
6) Reduce compressor or distortion drive if using both effects in a preset.
Reduce the input drive control and never turn it up all the way. Reduce the
master output level if possible.
7) Add the expander to reduce the gain at low level.
8) Try keeping the MIX settings to 75% to reduce noise and leave you room for
adding gain if required.
8) Use as little DIGITAL ([DGFX]) effects level in the MIX as possible. Keep the
digital effects output levels to 100% and the MIX setting 75% or less.
Using Your Head (Amplifier)
The SGX 2000 is a working preamp, so is the head in your guitar rig. Using the
two together proves "two heads are better than one"! Even though the SGX 2000 is
not a power amp, combining it with your existing setup greatly expands your sound
capability.
Setup 1: Guitar/SGX 2000/Amp
Guitar into the Instrument Input of the SGX 2000, Instrument Output to your clean
channel input of the head. Use the clean channel so you can use the SGX 2000's
front panel controls to modify your sound not your amp. Initially, set all the
head's tone controls to flat. After the SGX is set up, slight tonal modifications
can then be done with your head's tone controls. Set the Mix parameters in each
preset to control the signal level to your head. This will allow you to have the
rigs master volume set and all you have to do is change presets for louder or
softer levels.
Setup 2: Guitar/Amp/SGX 2000 in Amp Effects Loop
Guitar into the dirty channel of the head, amp effect send to Line input (Left
Mono) of the SGX, Line out (Left) to the amp effect return. When using this
configuration, you will be using the drive characteristics of your head and
accenting them with the SGX 2000. Make sure your input level to the SGX is "hot"
enough. The Drive control on the front panel will probably be set to 8 or above
depending on the amplifier used.
44
Miscellaneous Suggestions
It is not suggested to use a microphone plugged directly into the SGX 2000. Even
though the device will function properly with some types of microphones you may
encounter level mismatch or level problems. Some type of preamplifier is required
since the input sensitivity of most microphones is less than -40dB.
For the effects that have a LEVEL control parameter, use this control to adjust
for depth and apparent mix level for each preset.
To control the overall output level of the SGX 2000 via MIDI, assign an external
MIDI controller to change the Master parameter in the Programmable Level
algorithm. You are able to do this by adding a MIDI controller to your preset and
setting the values accordingly.
Signal level required to trigger the AUTO Record of the Sampler is to input
enough signal to light the GREEN LED.
Signal level required to trigger the AUDIO Play of the Sampler is to input enough
signal to light the YELLOW LED. Use the front panel Digital Input slider to
adjust the threshold level of the audio trigger.
Insert a volume pedal in Loop 1 and use it to control the signal level to your
proccessor.
If you are using the Instrument Input on the front panel you clip the SGX 2000
easily, use the Line Input (L mono) on the rear panel.
45
APPENDIX B
EXAMPLES
COPYING A PRESET
You may copy a preset from any location into another easily. (If you want to copy
a factory preset into another factory preset location, you must first Unlock the
destination preset.) To copy a factory preset into one of the 90 user presets
follow these steps.
-Enter EDIT Mode.
-Select the preset you want copied by pressing the Preset button and using the
Encoder to dial it up.
-Press the RECALL button.
-Use the Encoder to select the preset location you are copying to i.e. Preset
111.
-Press the STORE button.
*The preset has now been copied and stored to the new location.
FACTORY RESET
There is a Factory Reset sequence which will reinitialize the SGX 2000 to ALL of
its original values. Be sure that you have either downloaded or kept a written
record of the Presets you want saved since they will be eliminated. To perform a
Factory Reset you must press and hold the PRESET, 0/ENTER and 4/MIDI buttons
simultaneously.
EXAMPLE 1:
Editing the MPT from the SGX 2000 front panel controls.
In this example, we will edit the MPT so when MIDI numbers 1 and 2 are received,
SGX 2000 PRESETS 60 and 151 will be recalled. It is assumed that the SGX 2000's
MPT has not been edited.
-Make sure you are in the EDIT Mode. (Press EDIT button if not)
-Press the MIDI button.
-Press the Param button.
-Turn the Encoder until you see in the LCD:
ÅÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÈ
ÂMIDI PROG=

ËÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÎ
-Press the Value button and use the Encoder to change the number to 60.
-Press the param button twice, press the Value button and turn the Encoder 1
click.
-Press the Value button twice and use the Encoder to change the number to 151.

ËÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÎ
-Exit MIDI mode by pressing the MIDI button once.
You may assign any preset # to any program # including a preset to a multiple of
program #'s. To test the reassigned numbers, use a MIDI device to recall the
presets. Your reassigned presets should be recalled.
NOTE: Don't forget, many foot pedals are configured for their preset 1 to recall
MIDI program 0. This example allows for this and preset 1 is recalled when the
foot pedal preset 1 is recalled.
46
EXAMPLE 2:
Editing the MPT with a keyboard or external controller.
Using this method of editing, you select the desired patch on the keyboard or
foot pedal, and then select the desired PRESET on the SGX 2000 for that sound.
You can do this while you are listening to the SGX 2000.
When used with a keyboard or other device which sends MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE
messages, MPT editing is simplified. We will edit the MPT for MIDI numbers 2 and
3, to recall presets 96 and 1. Once again it is assumed the SGX 2000 has not had
its MPT edited.
The keyboard/controller MIDI OUT must be connected to the SGX 2000's MIDI IN
jack. The MIDI channel on the SGX 2000 must be set to the same channel of the
sending device, or the SGX 2000's OMNI mode must be ON.
-Make sure you are in EDIT Mode. (Press EDIT button if not)
-Press the MIDI button.
-Turn the Encoder until you see in the LCD:
ÅÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÈ
ÂMIDI PROG=

 PRESET= 96_ Â
ËÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÎ
-Select a patch on the keyboard or MIDI foot pedal so [MIDI PROG= 2] is displayed
(select either preset #1, 2 or 3). If the MPT has never been edited, [PRESET=
3_] should be in the lower half of the display.
*The patch that causes [MIDI PROG= 2] to appear in the display is usually the
second or third patch of the lowest numbered bank if the keyboard has banks of
patches.
-Use the Encoder to select preset 96.
-With the keyboard change the MIDI PROGram number to 3.
-Set the PRESET to = 1.

ËÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÎ
You may continue to program each of the keyboard's patches (say there are 64) in
this manner assigning any preset # to the patch.
In the previous examples four of the MPT entries were edited. You may edit the
entire MPT if desired.
INCREMENT PROGRAM
If you do not have access to a MIDI controller and you wish to change between
PRESETs easily, you may want to edit the MPT for incrementing through a sequence
of presets. Example 3 illustrates how this is done.
The sequence programmed in Example 3 may be accessed from the front panel. A more
useful way of using a programmed sequence is to access the sequence using the
REMOTE jack and a momentary footswitch. To access these presets we must program
the REMOTE jacks to increment or decrement through the programs. Example 4
describes how program the REMOTE jack to sequence through the ten presets set up
in Example 3 with a footswitch. Example five shows how to program the REMOTE jack
for normal bypass operation.
47
EXAMPLE 3
Setting up a preset sequence including a bypass preset.
If you need to change between presets quickly without scanning or MIDI, this
procedure will be to your advantage. As in the other examples, editing the MPT is
the key. In this example we will edit the MPT to sequence through ten presets.
Ten is not the limit. You may program a sequence of 127 presets if you wish.
These presets will be in the order: 60, 151, 96, 1, 151, 35, 1, 69, 100 and 61.
Notice that we repeated some presets and included preset 100 which is set up from
the factory as a bypass preset (no effects stored in it). Remember you can assign
any preset to a MIDI number including using a preset at multiple locations. Using
an empty preset as a bypass enables you to select no effect eliminating the need
to bypass the unit from the front panel and then continuing on with an effect
preset next in the chain. NOTE: If your Mix is set for only 100% EFX, no signal
will pass through the SGX 2000.
-Make sure you are in EDIT Mode. (Press EDIT button if not)
-Press the MIDI button.
-Press the Value button, use the Encoder to change the display to:
ÅÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÈ
ÂMIDI PROG=

 PRESET=

ÂMIDI PROG=

 PRESET= 60_ Â
ËÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÎ
-change between the upper and lower lines, changing the values as needed.
*MIDI program #'s will be 0 thru 9.
*follow the procedure in Example 1 if you're stuck!
EXAMPLE 4
Programming the REMOTE jack for Incrementing Programs
Program the REMOTE 1 jack on the rear panel so you may use a footswitch to
increment through a desired set of presets, operate as a normal bypass jack, or
trigger the Sampler. Remember, you may only increment up when using a footswitch
and the sequence cycles through to the beginning.
-Make sure you are in EDIT Mode. (press EDIT button if not)
-Press the UTILITY button. Change the display to read [REMOTE SWITCH 1] in the
top half and [= BYPASS ON/OFF] in the bottom half.
-Press the Value button.
-Use the ENCODER to change the number to 9.
*You have just programmed the SGX 2000 to sequence through the ten presets set in
Example 3 when using a momentary footswitch plugged into the REMOTE 1 jack.

-Recall preset 32.
-Press the EDIT button.
-Use the Encoder to scroll up to preset 120.
-Press the Store button.
*You've just copied 32 to location 120.
-Press the ADD EFFECT button and turn the Encoder until you see [ADD:MIDI

-Press the ENTER button.
*You have just added a MIDI controller to the preset.
-Press the Param button four times.
-Press the Value button.
-Use the Encoder to select [LVL:MASTER= 93%]
-Press the Value button again, DON'T CHANGE THIS VALUE.
-Press the Value button again. DON'T CHANGE THIS VALUE
-Press the Value button one more time!!!!
-DON"T CHANGE THIS SETTING EITHER.
-Press the STORE button.
You now have edited a Factory Preset for PM control. You may edit any existing
preset to be controlled by PM. Remember to UNLOCK the preset to STORE your
changes and then re-lock the presets.
The MIDI controller assigned in this preset is MC 4, a foot controller. If you
are using your SGX 2000 with an ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT, the left pedal will control
the master level of the preset.

APPENDIX C
SGX 2000 MIDI MESSAGES
The SGX 2000 responds to the following messages:
Program change:
Cxh ddh
x = channel number 0h to Fh for channels 1 to 16
dd = program number 0h to 7Fh or 0 to 127
If the channel the SGX 2000 is set to is not off and the channel matches (either
it is the same number or OMNI is on), then the unit will look up the preset in
the MIDI Program Table (MPT) and recall the corresponding preset.
Channel Mode message for OMNI on/off
Bxh 7Ch 0h : OMNI Mode Off
Bxh 7Dh 0h : OMNI Mode On
x = channel number, 0h to Fh for channels 1 to 16
If the channel matches the units's channel number, it will set the OMNI mode
accordingly. The current OMNI mode does not affect this message, the channel
must match regardless of current OMNI mode.
SYSTEM EXCLUSIVE MESSAGES
message format:
general: <System Exclusive Status> <ART ID> <channel>
<product ID> <message ID> <message...> <EOX>
in hex: F0h 1Ah 0xh 12h <message ID> <message...> F7h
F0h - System Exclusive status byte.
1Ah - ART manufacturer's ID number.
0xh - channel number, 0 to 0Fh.
12 - SGX 2000 product id code.
F7h - End Of exclusive status byte.
Message ID values >= 40h are requests. A request is a message that when received
by the SGX 2000 causes a message to be sent by the SGX 2000.
0x is the channel number, 0 to 15 (00h to 0Fh).
is displayed as 1 to 16.
To the user, the channel number
Internally, presets are numbered 0 to 199. When a preset number is displayed, it
is shown as 1 to 200. Any messages that refer to the SGX 2000 preset number
refer to the internal number, 0..199. Preset numbers are referenced in message
with 2 data bytes, least significant 7 bits, then most significant bit in the lsb
of the next byte. Example: preset 1 on the LCD is referenced with 00h 00h, and
preset 200 is referenced with 47h, 01h.
When channel number is OFF and a front panel command for a dump is processed, the
SGX 2000 sends a message coded for channel 1 (the lowest channel number).
50
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF MESSAGES
Set Bypass OFF: F0 1A 0x 12 03 00 00 F7
Set Bypass ON: F0 1A 0x 12 03 00 01 F7
This allows remotely setting the state of BYPASS in the SGX 2000 without
affecting anything else in the unit.
MIDI controller messages may also be used to turn Bypass ON/OFF. The default
value is MIDI controller number 84.
Request DUMP all presets: F0 1A 0x 12 4B F7
LOAD all presets: F0 1A 0x 12 0B <many bytes> F7
Dumps all presets in preset number order. No compression of the data is done.
Request MPT table: F0 1A 0x 12 4C F7
Set MPT table: F0 1A 0x 12 0C <128 * 2 bytes> F7
For each MIDI program number there is a corresponding SGX 2000 preset number.
Each entry (internally) is 0..199 and is sent as 2 bytes. First the least
significant 7 bits, then the msb. This is done for each of the 128 MIDI program
numbers.
When FX ON/OFF Enable is ON, you may use MIDI controller 84 to activate MIDI
Bypass.
If you find you require additional MIDI technical information, please contact or
Customer Service department at (716) 436-2720.

NOTES:
1) Not all Inputs and Outputs need be used at once. This diagram shows what may
be plugged where.
2) If you do use the Instrument and Line Inputs together, the SGX 2000 will mix
the inputs and process both together.

APPENDIX G
USING THE SGX 2000 WITH AN X-15 ULTRAFOOT
When an ART X-15 ULTRAFOOT is used with the SGX 2000, remote control of the
parameters and the ability to turn on and off the effects themselves greatly
extend the capabilities of the SGX 2000. More than half of the SGX 2000's factory
presets are set up with MIDI controllers providing you instant access to the
parameters with your X-15. Presets 5 and 22 through 30 are designed specifically
for use with the X-15 Ultrafoot.
To correctly hook up the two devices, two MIDI cables should be used (see the
hookup diagram on the preceding page). Both the SGX 2000 and X-15 "talk" to each
other keeping their status' up to date. When the X-15 is in Effect Mode, it will
display which effects in the preset are active by lighting the associated pad's
LED. If you add, delete, or change the status of an effect with the SGX 2000, the
X-15 will monitor and display (or not display if you remove or turn off an
effect) the change.
All of the presets in the SGX 2000 with MIDI controllers assigned to them are set
to be controlled by MIDI Controllers (MC) 4 and 11. On the X-15, the left
expression controller is MC 4 and the right pedal is MC 11. When adding a MIDI
controller to a preset in the SGX 2000 the default value for the MIDI controller
(screen 2, CONTROLLER IS) is MC 4, Foot Controller. To select another MIDI
controller, use the Encoder to change the Value while editing this screen.
Every time a message is sent from the X-15 to the SGX 2000, the SGX's LCD
displays the message sent. Effects on and off messages and real time pedal values
will be displayed, program change messages (preset changes) will not be
displayed. For effects on and off messages to be displayed the X-15 must be in
Effect Mode. Anytime either foot controller is moved, the SGX 2000 displays the
parameter name and value.
Under the LCD are 16 individual LED's which indicate at all times what effects
are present and active in a preset. When an LED is lit, it indicates which effect
is present and active in the preset you are currently using. A flashing LED
indicates the effect is present in the preset but has been turned "off" from an
external controller such as the X-15 ULTRAFOOT.
All of the analog and digital effects parameters (even the MIX) are controllable
via the X-15. Some parameters were specifically tuned to be used with foot
controllers. These include: compressor output, envelope filter tuning, and any
threshold, attack, release or range parameter, distortion output when using
TURBO, or JAZZ TUBES, SOLID WARM or TUBE STACK.
