Introduction
How long have you wanted to:
• Control your (software) synthesizer without having to use virtual faders, and having to look at a
computer screen and use a mouse?
• Use the full capability of your computer’s built-in soundcard?
• Have realtime control for synths that have limited or no realtime controls
• Could the control possibilities of your master keyboard be improved?
Now it’s time to discover new uses for real time control by using one of the Doepfer Pocket Devices
• Pocket Control
• Pocket Fader
• Pocket Dial
The Pocket series are devices, that everyone could use, such as for the computer in the studio or for
live use in professional and semi-professional situations.
What can the Pocket devices do?
They can assign each of the 16 controls to individual Midi events. This Midi event controlled can be
selected from a list of preset options (giving over 16,000 different event combinations), such as
controllers, mono and poly aftertouch, pitch bend, RPN/NRPN, XG-SysEx, GS/XG controller, program
change and even note on/off events.
These events can be from any of the 16 Midi channels, or the master channel (which allows easy
selection of the controlling MIDI channel). The permutation of possibilities is therefore up to 17 (channel
options) * 16,000 (event combinations), which is over 250,000 possible combinations! The low cost of
the pocket devices allows for applications where multiple pocket unit's can be used chained together.
The difference between Pocket Control, Pocket Fader and Pocket Dial is the type of control:
• Pocket Control is equipped with 16 rotary potentiometers
• Pocket Fader is equipped with 16 slide potentiometers (faders)
• Pocket Dial is equipped with 16 endless rotary encoder (sometimes called alpha dials)
Special features of Pocket Dial compared with Pocket Control / Fader
Pocket Control and Pocket Fader transmit absolute MIDI data in the range 0...127, i.e. the visible
position of the controlling element (rotary knob, fader knob) corresponds to the MIDI data sent by the
element in question. The only difference between Pocket Control and Pocket Fader is the type of
potentiometer. Pocket Control uses rotary potentiometers, Pocket Fader slide potentiometers.
Pocket Dial is able to transmit absolute or relative MIDI data. In the first case Pocket Dial transmits
absolute MIDI data in the range 0...127. Because of the type of controlling elements (endless encoders)
there is no visible feedback concerning the transmitted data. In the second case Pocket Dial transmits
only relative increment/decrement messages and does not "know" the absolute value that is generated
in the device controlled by Pocket Dial.
Page 4
Pocket Dial
User's Guide
If absolute MIDI data transmission is used (e.g. MIDI controllers) the device or software controlled by
Pocket Dial should be able to transmit the new controller data to Pocket Dial after a preset change (if
e.g. the sound was changed). The new data is used by Pocket Dial as starting value for the parameter in
question. This enables a jump-free adjustment of parameters.
The absolute values generated by Pocket Dial can be stored in the non-volatile preset memory of
Pocket Dial and are used if a preset is called-up later.
If relative MIDI data transmission is used only increment / decrement information is sent by Pocket Dial.
Different types of inc/dec messages are available as there is no MIDI standard for inc/dec of certain
controllers available so far.
Attention: Only devices that features the data feedback or inc/dec control should be
controlled by POCKET DIAL. For other applications we recommend Pocket Control or Pocket
Fader.
If you need a Midi controller that is able to generate free programmable Midi system exclusive
messages (SysEx) the devices of the Pocket series are not suitable. In this case we recommend
DREHBANK (64 rotary potentiometers) or REGELWERK (24 faders). These devices allow the
transmission of free user definable Midi strings including SysEx messages.
The main application of Pocket Dial is be the control of different Midi equipment, especially software
synthesizers. In this case Pocket Dial is placed in front of the computer screen so that the absolute
parameter data and their changes can be seen immediately at the screen.

Power Supply
The Pocket Dial does not have a built-in power supply. Instead it uses a plug-in type external power
supply (DC adapter). The connector is labelled 9V DC 100mA. The primary reason for this feature is the
fact that line voltages and plug types vary considerably from country to country. Using a plug-in external
supply the Pocket Dial can be used anywhere with a locally purchased power supply, thus keeping the
cost down.The Pocket Dial is switched ON by plugging the supplied AC adapter into a wall outlet and
connecting it to the appropriate jack on the back of the case. There is no separate ON/OFF switch. The
Pocket Dial includes an AC adapter for 230V mains supply with a European type mains plug. We
recommend to use only the power supply that is supplied together with the Pocket
Dial.
In countries with different mains plug types or voltages a suitable power supply
has to be purchased locally by the user. The power supply must be able to deliver
a voltage of 7V to 12V (not stabilized), as well as a minimum current of 100mA.
The connection polarity is positive inner (see the sketch near the power supply
socket). Although the Pocket Dial has a built in protection diode for protection
against incorrect polarity, the Pocket Dial can still be damaged by using an
incorrect adaptor, so only use an approved adaptor and avoid using multi-polarity
type adaptors with voltage level and polarity switching, as inadvertant settings can
cause problems.
MIDI
Connect the MIDI OUT of the Pocket Dial to the MIDI IN of the device
controlled by Pocket Dial (e.g. software synthesizer, sound generator,
sequencer). At this output appear the MIDI data generated by Pocket
Dial. If the MIDI input is wired too the Pocket Dial merges the
incoming data with it’s own data, so the MIDI OUT is a data merge of
MIDI IN and data generated by the Pocket Dial. There is no use for a
separate MIDI thru with this type of device. If incoming MIDI data do
not appear at the MIDI probably the MIDI Thru is switched off (only
possible by the editor software). In this case the Pocket Dial has to be
reprogrammed using the editor program with MIDI Thru switched On !
The connection of the MIDI IN socket is required only in these cases:
•
•
•
•
•
For data feedback to set the new starting values after a preset
change of the device controlled by Pocket Dial if absolute MIDI
control data are used (e.g. MIDI controllers)
To merge any MIDI data (e.g. from a keyboard) with the data
generated by Pocket Dial
To change the selected preset of Pocket Dial with incoming MIDI
Program Change messages from another MIDI device
To program the presets of Pocket Dial with an editor program
(e.g. the free editor for PC or the Sounddiver)
To change some basic parameters of the Pocket Dial with an
editor program (e.g. the MIDI Thru on/off option)
If none of these items applies the MIDI IN socket remains unconnected.

Pocket Dial
User's Guide
Note that if extremely large Sys-Ex dumps are passed through the Pocket Dial then it is advisable not to
move any Pocket Dial knobs whilst this transmission is taking place, as the merge abilities of the Pocket
Dial were not intended to work whilst this kind of intense transmission is taking place.
If multiple Pocket devices (Pocket Dial/Control/Fader) are being used then the MIDI connections can be
chained together so that all the Pocket devices produce one composite data from the last MIDI out in the
chain.
Operation
Power On
The Pocket Dial is switched ON by plugging the AC adapter into a wall outlet and connecting the DC
output cable of the adapter to the appropriate jack on the rear panel of Pocket Dial. There is no separate
ON/OFF switch.
After power on the four LED's at the upper left side light up one
after another ("running light"). Then the first LED turns on indicating
that bank #1 is selected. If this does not take place the power
supply used is defective, unsuitable or has the wrong polarity.
After power on the 4 presets defined by the DIP switch setting are
transferred into the four bank memories, the MIDI master channel
and the Thru mode options are called up from the non-volatile
memory.
LED Display
Under normal operation the LEDs indicates MIDI in activity, and also MIDI out activity when moving
the knobs on the Pocket Dial. Thus the LEDs can be used to check the basic functions of Pocket Dial,
i.e. to test if actually MIDI data are received or transmitted.
The LED's are also used to display certain conditions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Which of the four banks is selected and consequently - .
Which of the four buttons can be used to call-up a snapshot (i.e. transmit the 16 absolute values
corresponding to the 16 controls, works only if absolute MIDI data are transmitted)
Master channel mode for adjusting the MIDI master channel of Pocket Dial
Program change mode for transmitting program change messages with control #8
Storage mode for storing the present absolute values of the 16 controls non-volatile in the memory
MIDI In error
Details about these subjects follow in the next chapter "Functions of the buttons".

Functions of the buttons
The setting of the different operation modes takes place with the four buttons with assigned LEDs
labeled Bank 1 to 4 at the left upper side and the two buttons labeled CHN and PRG (no LEDs) at the
right upper side.
These buttons are used to
These buttons are used to
(1) select one of four Banks.
(2) trigger a Snapshot.
(3) store the 16 absolute values of the currently
selected bank in the non-volatile memory
(4) select the Master Channel Mode for adjusting
the MIDI master channel of Pocket Dial.
(5) select the Program Change Mode to transmit
MIDI program change messages with control
knob #8.
(6) clear the Error State if necessary (e.g.
triggered by a MIDI overflow at the MIDI input)
(1) Selecting a new bank
Operate briefly the button of the new bank to be selected. All four LEDs light up briefly while the new
bank is selected. As soon as only the LED of the new selected bank turns on the 16 new MIDI
messages of the new bank are assigned to the 16 controls. The LED will light up permanently until
another bank is chosen.
(2) Triggering a snapshot
Operate briefly the button of the bank that is already selected. This triggers a snapshot, i.e. the present
16 values corresponding to the 16 controls are transmitted to the MIDI output.
(3) Storing the present absolute values
Hold the button of the bank that is already selected down for at least one second and keep it held down
until the 4 LEDs light up inverted, i.e. the LED of the currently selected bank turns off and the remaining
three LEDs turn on until the button is released. The present values of the 16 controls are stored into the
non-volatile memory as soon as the button is released.
Page 8
Pocket Dial
User's Guide
(4) Adjusting the MIDI master channel
To set the MIDI master channel, hold the button labeled CHN at the right side and keep it held down.
The LEDs of bank 1 and 2 will light up (do not let go of the button until the required value has been
selected). In this mode the control knobs become channel selectors, and do not transmit the normal
control data. To select a channel, simply move one of the control knobs that relates to the channel
required (to set channel 5, move control knob 5). As soon as one of the knobs is moved all LEDs turn off
to indicate that the new master channel is adjusted. If you accidentally move the wrong knob, just move
the correct one, as it is the last knob moved that determines the actual MIDI master channel set. The
new master channel is stored into the non-volatile memory as soon as the CHN button is released. After
the next power on this channel will be used as MIDI master channel.
The master channel is used to select which channel the Pocket Dial will transmit on when using relevant
presets. In some presets (such as the MIDI volume - preset 0) each knob is assigned to a different
channel, whilst other presets have all knobs on the same channel, it is on these presets that the master
channel is used. The master channel is also the channel which the Pocket Dial will receive and transmit
MIDI program change data on.
(5) Transmitting MIDI program change messages
To transmit MIDI program change messages, hold the button labeled PRG at the right side and keep it
held down. The LEDs of bank 3 and 4 will light up (do not let go of the button until the desired program
change messages has been sent). In this mode the control knobs #8 is used to transmit program
change messages on the MIDI master channel, and does not transmit the normal control data. The
knobs 1 ~ 7 and 9 ~ 16 have no function while the PRG button is held down.
(6) Clearing an error
As soon as the Pocket Dial recognizes an MIDI overflow (too much data in one go) all four LEDs turn
on (i.e. error display). To clear an error, press one of the 6 buttons.
The error display indicates that the merge capacity of Pocket Dial was exceeded or that SysEx
messages destined for Pocket Dial could not be processed because they were sent too fast.
In both cases probably wrong or incomplete MIDI data have been received by Pocket Dial and/or
transmitted to the MIDI output of Pocket Dial. To avoid errors the transfer of the MIDI data should be
repeated at a lower transmission rate.

Functions of the DIP switches (rear panel)
The eight rear panel DIP switches determine the start-up preset, i.e. the number
of the preset that is called-up after power on. This preset and the three
subsequent presets are assigned to the 4 banks of Pocket Dial.
The settings can be looked upon as a binary number where each switch can be
either on or off, this allows up to 256 numbers to be selected from the eight DIP
switches. The switch is referred to ON or 1, when set towards the top panel, and
referred to OFF or 0 when set towards the bottom panel:
•
•
On = 1, when set towards the top panel
Off = 0, when set towards the bottom panel
Only seven of the switches are used to select one of the 128 presets. The eighth switch is not used at
present (as of fall 2001) and has no functions so far, but it is good practice to leave it in the OFF
position, as a future update may make use of this switch position.
The switches are numbered one to eight on the switch block itself, when relating the switch positions to
a binary number, then the least significant bit is towards the middle of the Pocket Dial (or to the field for
the serial number) and numbered 1 on the switch. It is switch number 8 that is not used.
The factory shipped default setting is Preset number 0, which is all switches off (towards bottom) which
is defined as MIDI Volume across all MIDI channels.
The listing on the next page lists all the presets that are shipped in the Pocket Dial, note that the switch
settings are shown with the least significant bit to the right (as would normally be shown with a binary
number), so note the switch numbering which is eight to the left and one to the right, this relates to the
switch position when looking at the rear panel of the Pocket Dial. If holding the Pocket Dial, you tip the
unit up at the back to look into the DIP switches that way, you will be looking at the DIP switches the
other way with one to the left and eight to the right, when doing this remember that the switch order will
be the reverse. The list of presets shows the switch position split into two groups of four, as this should
help reading the switch code.
At first sight the adjustment of the DIP switches may look a little bit complicated. But normally you will
not have to change this setting very often. Rather the DIP switch setting is used to load the favorite 4
presets into the bank memories after power on.
In operation you may change the preset even with incoming MIDI program change messages provided
that these are sent on the MIDI master channel of Pocket Dial. But this adjustment is volatile, i.e. after
the next power on the preset defined by the DIP switch setting is loaded.
Of course one may change the preset with the DIP switch too, e.g. as no suitable MIDI device for
transmission of program change messages is available.
Changing the preset with the DIP switch is indicated by a short lighting up of all four LEDs. During this
moment no incoming MIDI program change messages are recognized.

Presets printed bold are new or modified presets compared with Pocket Control or Pocket Fader.
They mainly contain functions that are available only for Pocket Dial (e.g. Inc/Dec messages). Presets
without commentary are left blank while this manual was written but they already may be used in the
Pocket Dial you received. Please look at our web site www.doepfer.com for the current state of the
factory presets. New presets will be developed, and these will become available free on our web site
too.

User's Guide
Controlling Pocket Dial with incoming Midi messages
Some functions of Pocket Dial may be controlled with incoming MIDI messages. The MIDI output of the
device generating these messages (e.g. a computer) has to be connected to the MIDI input of the
Pocket Dial. The LEDs of Pocket Dial may be used to check if MIDI events appear at the MIDI input of
Pocket Dial.
The following functions can be controlled with incoming MIDI messages:
a) Changing the preset takes place with an incoming MIDI program change message provided that
the MIDI channel matches with the MIDI master channel of Pocket Dial. The number of the new
preset corresponds to the program change number received. For example prg # 35 selects preset #
35. Pay attention that there are two different modes of counting: 0 ~ 127 or 1~128. In this manual
the counting mode 1 ~ 128 is used. If the device that transmits the program change messages uses
the counting mode 0 ~ 127 one has to add 1 to obtain the corresponding preset number of Pocket
Dial.
b) The 128 non-volatile presets of Pocket Dial cannot be edited with the Pocket Dial itself. Rather a
external editor has to be used to generate the SysEx messages required to program the presets of
Pocket Dial. Two types of editor programs are available: The Pocket Dial editor for PC that can be
downloaded for free from our web site www.doepfer.com. (PC with MS Windows 95/98/2000
required). The OEM version of Emagic's universal editor Sounddiver can be purchased at a small
extra charge together with the Pocket Dial (CD with both version for PC and Mac, including all
adaptions for Doepfer devices). OEM means that this version of Sounddivers works only in
combination with Doepfer devices and is not a full version of the program. For details please refer to
the appendix. The presets are available as MIDI standard files that can be processed by MIDI
standard applications (e.g. record and play back with MIDI file players or sequencers).
Presets
As mentioned several times Pocket Dial features 128 presets that can be selected with the DIP switch at
the rear panel or with incoming MIDI program change messages on the MIDI master channel of Pocket
Dial.
You will find a detailed specification of all presets on our web site www.doepfer.com in case that the
information in this manual is not sufficient for your application.
Preset management
Pocket Dial has available 128 presets. Preset means in this connection the data set in the memory
that contains the information about the assignment of the 16 controls to MIDI messages including the
stored 16 absolute values for these controls.
Four of these presets can be selected quickly with the bank buttons at the top of the case. The DIP
switch at the rear panel resp. the incoming MIDI program change message is used to define the preset
number that is assigned to bank button 1. The 3 succeeding presets are assigned to the bank buttons 2
~ 4.
Example: The DIP switch is set to preset number 42. With the four bank buttons the presets 42 (bank
button 1), 43 (bank button 2) , 44 (bank button 3) and 45 (bank button 4) can be selected.
The memory management of Pocket Dial is very similar to Pocket Control and Pocket Fader. The main
difference are the four bank buttons that enable a fast selection of four succeeding presets.
Pocket Dial
User's Guide
Page 13
Consequently 64 virtual controls are available with Pocket Dial. This additional feature makes sense only
with the Pocket Dial as the encoders allow a jump-free data control. The new data can be calculated
relative to the last value of the encoder in question. For Pocket Control or Pocket Fader this would not
be possible as the potentiometers transmit absolute values leading to parameter jumps when a new
preset with different assignments of the controls to MIDI messages is selected.
List of presets (detailed)
In the following you will find a more detailed list with explanations of all the presets that are shipped in
the Pocket Dial. Presets not mentioned in this manual already may be used in the Pocket Dial you
received. Please look at our web site www.doepfer.com for the current state of the factory presets.
New presets will be developed, and these will become available free on our web site too.
The name of a presets tells the coarse function of the preset. You also will find the information is the
controls are assigned to fixed MIDI channels or to the MIDI master channel of Pocket Dial.
Especially for those devices that do not recognize one of the inc/dec messages in the latest column the
term feedback is specified if the parameters of the preset (e.g. MIDI controllers) can be updated with
suitable incoming MIDI data. In this case the device controlled by Pocket Dial has to transmit the new
data after any change (e.g. if the sound of the device was changed). Please look into the manual of your
device or software controlled by Pocket Dial if this applies. If your device does not support this feature
the feedback/update will not work! If you are not sure, please contact the manufacturer of the device.
We (Doepfer) cannot give information if the device X by the manufacturer Y has this feature available.
For more details please refer to the appendix.
Example: If a knob is assigned to MIDI controller #17 on MIDI channel 5 any incoming MIDI controller
#17 data on channel 5 will be used as new starting value for this knob. The incoming controller message
updates the value for this knob.
The presets 1 ~ 64 are very similar to those of Pocket Control and Pocket Fader. Normally only the
feedback/update feature was added.

Presets 5 ~ 8 use two controllers, one across the top row of knobs and the other across the bottom row.
With Preset 5, the top row is MIDI controller 7 (Volume) with the MIDI channel corresponding to the
knob number, whilst the lower row is MIDI controller 10 (Pan) on the same channel as the knob above it,
hence knob 9 is channel 1, knob 10 is channel 2 etc. Preset 6 follows the same idea except the MIDI
channel is channels 9 to 16, so the actual MIDI channel relates to the lower knob numbers. Preset 7,
again follows the same idea as Preset 5 except the top row is MIDI controller 74 (Filter Cut off ) and the
lower row is controller 71 (Filter Resonance), and finally Preset 8 is the same as Preset 7 except the
channels are 9-16.

Presets 9 ~ 16 are general controller sets, which transmit on the Master Channel. Where the receiving
MIDI device can be programmed to any controller it can receive, these presets maybe the only presets
needed, although preset 9 is perhaps best avoided for general use as it includes controller 0 (could
trigger MIDI program bank changes) and controller 1 which is the modulation wheel, although of course
there may be instances when MIDI controller 1 is required, such as adding a modulation wheel function
to a keyboard (such as a digital piano). Preset 13 also needs to be used with caution, as controller 64 is
defined as the sustain/damper pedal function, and most devices will always receive this controller as
Damper or Hold.

Presets 33 ~ 42 are similar to the presets 1~4 and control the XG parts with SysEx messages (nearl all
Yamaha instruments). The 16 knobs controll the parameter of the 16 MIDI channels. Each preset
controls either Part volume, pan, reverb send, chorus send, dry level, variation effect send, low eq gain,
low eq frequency, high eq gain or high eq frequency.

These presets enable the 14 bit control using high and low byte of a controller. The difference of the
controller numbers for high and low byte is always 32, e.g. controller 8 and 40. If one of these presets is
selected the Pocket Dial checks if the two controllers of a 14 bit controller pair are assigned to two
knobs of Pocket Dial. If this applies a possible overrun or underrun of the least sigificant byte (LSB, i.e.
controller 40 in the example) is considered for the calculation of the most significant byte (MSB, i.e.
controller 8 in the example). For details please refer to appendix (transmission of absolute data).

The presets 89 ~ 96 make available all possible 128 Inc/Dec controller messages in increasing order (8
presets with 16 inc/dec controller messages each). The MIDI channel is the master channel. This
preset group was made especially for softsynths and virtual synths that enable the control of parameters
with the inc/dec controller messages. Some of these applications include a learning feature that enables
to tell the application which knob of Pocket Dial is used to control the desired parameter (e.g. the
CronoX software, see 'www.Linplug.com' in the appendix). For details please refer to appendix
(transmission of increment/decrement data).
The following 5 presets are adaptions for the programm 'CrusherX-Live' (see www.CrusherX.com in the
appendix):

The following two presets are examples for applications of the NRPN controllers in connection with the
inc/dec controllers. So far no device is able to recognize this message type. But from our point of view
this would include a lot of advantages. We think that the reason is that so far no lo-cost controllers like
Pocket Dial have been available and we hope that the manufacturers will take into consideration this
very flexible relative controlling idea.

Preset numbers not mentioned are not used while this manual was written but they already may be used
in the device you received. New presets will be developed and we will update the factory presets now
and then. Please look at our web site www.doepfer.com for the current state of the factory presets.
The factory presets are available for free download from our web site so that you may make them
topical in your device provided you want to use the factory presets. The factory presets are subject to
change.
In addition you may modify the factory presets with the Pocket Editor of PC (free download from our web
site) or the Emagic Sounddiver (small additional charge, CD with both versions for Mac and PC).
Remark: The presets have been made using the available information from the manufacturers. Due to
the fullness of data we cannot guarantee that the factory presets are faultless. If you find any error or if
you have any suggestion for improvement don't hesitate to contact us (e.g. you could send an email to
[email protected]). Certain presets may work only if the device controlled is in the right mode (e.g.
XG mode for the XG presets). The preset data are subject to change.

Troubleshooting
There will be times when the Pocket Dial does not seem to be working as expected, before suspecting
a faulty Pocket Dial, the checklist below should help resolve the problem. Though there is no separate
power indicator on the Pocket Dial at least one of the LEDs is always active.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•

•
Is the Pocket Dial powered up correctly? After power on the four LEDs at the upper left side have to
light up one after another ("running light"). Then the first LED has to turn on. When the CHN button
is held down the LEDs 1 and 2 have to turn on (master channel adjust mode), when the PRG button
is held down the LEDs 3 and 4 have to turn on (program change mode). If this does not happen
check the power supply used: right voltage (7V to 12V DC not stabilized), minimum current 100mA,
polarity: positive inner (see the sketch near the power supply socket)
Are suitable cables used for the MIDI connections. Do not use standard 5 pin DIN cables but only
cables that are approved for MIDI.
Do not mix up MIDI In and MIDI Out. MIDI Out of Pocket Dial has to be connected to MIDI In of the
device controlled by Pocket Dial. MIDI In of Pocket Dial has to be connected onyl in certain cases
(refer to page 6 for details). MIDI Out of the device controlling Pocket Dial has to be connected to
MIDI In of Pocket Dial:
Correct:
Device 1 MIDI Out → Device 2 MIDI In
Correct:
Device 1 MIDI Out → Device 2 MIDI In
Wrong:
MIDI Out → MIDI Out
Wrong:
MIDI In → MIDI In
Moving one of the knobs will flash the LED above button of the active bank. The LED does not flash
if the knob has not been assigned a function or if the uppermost or lowest data is reached already.
Is the Pocket Dial set to the correct preset? Maybe one of the DIP switches has moved accidentally
or a MIDI program change has set a new preset up. Check if the DIP switch settings correspond to
the desired preset. There may be DIP switch settings that refer to an empty preset. In this case the
Pocket Dial will generate no MIDI data at the output and the LED will not flash!
Changing the preset with the DIP switch has to be indicated by a short lighting up of all four LEDs.
Is the Pocket Dial set to the correct MIDI channel? Many presets make use of the Master Channel,
there is no way of checking what the Master Channel is set to (other than monitoring the transmitted
data), so the best procedure here is to set the Master Channel again to double check if it is correct.
Refer to page 8 about how to adjust the Master Channel.
The active LED has to flash when MIDI data are sent to the Pocket Dial. Otherwise the MIDI cable
used might be unsuitable or there is a mistake in the wiring of the devices.
If incoming MIDI data does not appear at the MIDI output though the LED displays MIDI In activity
probably the MIDI Thru is switched off. This can be done only by the editor software. In this case the
Pocket Dial has to be reprogrammed by the editor program but with MIDI Thru switched on !
If one of the knobs will not respond though one has selected a suitable preset maybe the uppermost
(127) or lowest (0) data was sent already. E.g. if you turn a knob clockwise and reach the uppermost
data value (127) continued turning will cause no more MIDI data as the last possible value was
already sent. So change the turning direction if a knob seems to respond no longer (applies only for
absolute data type, relative inc/dec data have no upper/lower limit).
Problems with MIDI loops: remember that the Pocket Dial normally merges it’s own data with MIDI
input data. This can cause a MIDI loop: e.g. MIDI Out Computer → MIDI In Pocket Dial → MIDI Out
Pocket Dial → MIDI In Computer = MIDI loop. So you have to make sure that no MIDI loop appears,
e.g. by turning off the MIDI Thru mode of the Pocket Dial (possible only with editor software) or the
MIDI Thru of the device controlled by Pocket Control (e.g. computer). In some devices this function
is called MIDI echo on/off.
If all four LEDs turn on the Pocket Dial has recognized an MIDI overflow. To clear an error, press
one of the 6 buttons. The error display indicates that the merge capacity of Pocket Dial was
exceeded or that SysEx messages destined for Pocket Dial could not be processed because they
were sent too fast.
Pay attention that the device controlled by Pocket Dial is in the right mode (e.g. XG mode for XG
messages).

Appendix
Rotary encoders
The controls used in the Pocket Dial are so-called rotary encoders (sometimes called alpha dials or
incremental encoders or endless encoders) in contrast to Pocket Control or Pocket Fader. These
devices are equipped with 16 rotary potentiometers (Pocket Control) or slide potentiometers (Pocket
Fader).
An encoder has no absolute position like a rotary or slide potentiometer rather it only outputs
incremental data (increment or +1 / decrement or –1) when it is operated. The encoders used in the
Pocket Dial feature 24 detents/pulses per rotation, i.e. the data change is +/-24 per turn. The change
from one position to the next can be felt with the fingers as the encoders used are equipped with the
click feature. A full turn (i.e. 360 degrees) corresponds to +24 resp. –24 detents and consequently ±24
data difference. But the Pocket Dial has built-in acceleration function, i.e. the data change increases (±2,
±3, ±4 ....) if the encoder is turned faster. Only if the encoder is turned slow a full turn corresponds to ±
24. The required time to cover the full range from 0 ~ 127 is about ½ second due to the acceleration
function when the knob is turned fast.
Jump-free parameter change
Thanks to the endless rotary encoders used in pocket Dial jump-free changes of parameters become
true provided that some requirements are met. To realize jump-free changes there are 2 fundamental
solutions:
1. Pocket Dial transmits absolute data
In this case Pocket Dial transmits absolute MIDI Control change data. After a program change of the
device controlled by Pocket Dial (e.g. a SoftSynth) parameter jumps will occur.
Example: The value for filter frequency was 95 for the "old" sound and is 23 for the "new" sound. If one
operates the control for this parameter there will be a jump to 94 or 96 depending if the control was
operated up or down.
This problem can be solved if the device controlled by Pocket Dial outputs the new values (i.e. MIDI
controllers) for all parameters after a sound change. Pocket Dial receives these values and uses them
as new starting values thus causing no longer parameter jumps.
Example: The value for filter frequency was 95 for the "old" sound and is 23 for the "new" sound. After
the sound change the device controlled by Pocket Dial outputs the new value 23 for this parameter.
Pocket Dial receives this new value and uses it as the new start value for the corresponding knob. If one
operates the control for this parameter Pocket Dial will transmit 24 or 22 depending if the control was
operated up or down. This means that there is no parameter jump as the data transition is 23 -> 24 or
23 -> 22.
But it is essential for this type of control that the device controlled by Pocket Dial transmits the new MIDI
controller data after a sound change. Pocket Dial will receive these data and check out if one of the
controller numbers assigned to the 16 encoders matches with one of these controller numbers. If this
applies the controller data value will be used as the new starting data for this controller. Pocket Dial and
the device controlled by Pocket Dial have to be connected via MIDI in both directions:
MIDI Out of Pocket Dial -> MIDI In of the device controlled by Pocket Dial
MIDIOut of the device controlled by Pocket Dial -> MIDI In of Pocket Dial
Actually Pocket Dial does not only check the 16 controller of the current bank but even the controllers of
the remaining 3 banks. Thus actually 64 controls (16 in each bank) are updated.
Pocket Dial
User's Guide
Page 33
Even 14 bit controller update is possible. In this case the Pocket Dial checks if a 14 bit controllers pair
exists, i.e. if the two controllers of a 14 bit controller pair are assigned to two knobs of Pocket Dial. If this
applies a possible overrun or underrun of the least sigificant byte (LSB, i.e. controller 40 in the example)
is considered for the calculation of the most significant byte (MSB, i.e. controller 8 in the example).
It is essential that the MSB and the LSB controllers are arranged one below the other.
Example:
controller 1 (i.e. MSB Modulation)
controller 33 (i.e. LSB Modulation)
→knob 1
→ knob 9
The factory presets 81 ~ 84 contain some examples for 14 bit controllers. In any case 2 knobs are used:
one for the coarse value (MSB) and one for the fine value (LSB). In the MIDI standard the controllers
0~31 and 32~63 are defined as 14 bit controller pairs (with 0~31 = 32 MSBs and 32~63 = 32 LSBs).
2. Pocket Dial transmits Increment / Decrement Data
In this case Pocket Dial does not "know" the absolute value of the parameter but transmits only the
information data increment (abbreviation: inc) or data decrement (abbreviation: dec).
a) Unfortunately there is no MIDI message available "increase data of MIDI Controller XX" or "increase
data of MIDI Controller XX". There is only a general Data increment (Controller #96 decimal, resp.
#60 hexadecimal) and Data decrement message (Controller #97 decimal, resp. #61 hexadecimal)
available. The third byte of these messages is - as far as we know - not used so far. In the MIDI
spec we found no statement concerning this byte. Remember: each MIDI control change message
consists of 3 bytes. We want to solve this problem by "hiding" the controller number, to which the
inc/dec is related to, in the third byte of these messages. This modified inc/dec messages would
enable to increase or decrease the value of a specific MIDI controller. We hope that other
companies will agree to this proposal and adjust their software/hardware to this amendment of the
MIDI Data increment/decrement message (controller #96/97). The "new" MIDI messages are:
Controller Increment: BnH 60H xxH
Controller Decrement: BnH 61H xxH
with n = MIDI channel (0...F) and xx = MIDI Controller No (00...77H, 78H...7FH is reserved for
Channel Mode Messages). H means hexadezimal values.
The factory presets 89 ~ 96 contain all possible 128 inc/dec messages of this type in groups of 16.
The factory presets 97~101 use this type of controllers too but with modified order for the program
Crusher-X (refer to chapter www.crusherx.com).
b) The second possibility is the usage of non-registered parameter messages (NRPN) in connection
with the inc/dec controller described in a). The basic procedure for altering a parameter value is to
first send the non-registered parameter number corresponding to the parameter to be modified,
followed by the data increment or data decrement message. This is a MIDI standard procedure and
described in the MIDI 1.0 specification. The parameter number consists of LSB (= MIDI controller
98D / 62 H) and MSB (= MIDI controller 99 D / 63 H, D and H means decimal resp. hexadecimal). The
data increment message is the MIDI controller 96 D / 60H and the data decrement is the MIDI
controller 97D / 61 H. Such a message consists of 3 controller messages, i.e. 9 MIDI bytes. A typical
complete NRPN message looks like this (all values are hexadecimal):
B0 63 7F
B0 62 15
B0 60 XX
In this example the first three bytes are the MSB controller of the NRPN. The data for this message
is 7F (often used with AWE Soundblaster devices). The second three bytes are the LSB controller of
the NRPN. The data for this message is 15 ( = cutoff frequency for AWE devices). The last three
bytes are the controller message for data increment. XX is the increment value (e.g. 04 for a data
Page 34
Pocket Dial
User's Guide
increase of 4, i.e. adding 4 to the current value). The XX value is sent in the signed bit mode (see
next paragraph).
The factory presets 105 and 106 contain examples for this message type. The presets 105 und 106
control the same parameters as the presets 17 and 18 resp. 23. But these presets use absolute
data. So far (as of fall 2001) no device is able to recognize this message type. But from our point of
view this type of parameter control would include a lot of advantages. We think that the reason is
that so far no lo-cost controllers like Pocket Dial have been available and we hope that the
manufacturers will take into consideration this very flexible relative controlling idea in the future.
c) For some little time another type of relative parameter control is used by some programs or devices.
In this case relative data is derived from an - in the true sense - absolute data. Certain MIDI
message combinations are interpreted differing from the MIDI standard. As this message type is not
included with MIDI specification there is no standard available (like the message suggestions in
paragraph a and b suggested by Doepfer).
For example Native Instrument's REAKTOR uses the following type of relative parameter control.
The normal MIDI controller messages are read in this way:
controller data value (third controller byte) = 63 → decrement one step
controller data value (third controller byte) = 65 → increment one step
Pocket Dial is able to generate these data types as well. The presets 85~88 contain some examples.
We call this message type "relativ binary mode".
Some hardware mixers transmit data in the so-called "signed bit mode" or "two's complement
mode". Preset 107 ~ 110 shows "signed bit mode" and 111 ~ 114 "two complement" examples.
Pocket Dial features supports all these message types. Consequently the number of devices that
may be controlled by Pocket Dial will significantly increase in the future.

crusherX-Live! featuring Pocket Dial!
Welcome to a new world of sound synthesis! Welcome to the worlds first real-time multichannel,
granular, morphing vapor synthesizer! Use your Pocket Dial to interact live with the famous shareware
crusherX-Live! Please feel free to download the demo on www.crusher-x.de or use the attached demo
version.
In cooperation with Doepfer Musikelektronik GmbH crusher-X implements special MIDI Inc-/DecControllers that allows you to control nearly every crusher-X interaction element via your Pocket Dial.
crusher-X is a shareware program whose powerful vapor synthesis algorithm enables you to synthesize
very complex and cool waves. crusher-X does distill and transform sounds quite radically. Based on
traditional granular synthesis, crusher-X can be used as a synthesizer or as a versatile effects unit. You
can create sounds with the internal oscillators or samplers as well as real-time stereo input sound (e.g. a
microphone). Internal feedback loops allows self-oscillation within crusher-X! Multichannel ASIO Outputs
allows extreme impressive sound installations and multichannel compositions up to 10 independent
channels.
A overall multidimensional morphing system morphs the sound between each parameter changing (e.g.
on Loading, on Undo/Redo, on MIDI-Event, on turning the pocket dial knob etc.). This creates clouds of
sweeping, shifting and graining sounds. The morph time can be ranged from 1ms up to 1 hour!
Try it … and hear the result! It’s more than sound, it’s more than music, it’s really fun!
To set up the demo for using with pocket dial crusher-X presets follow the following steps:
1. Run the crusher-X installer that you find on www.crusher-x.de or the CD and follow the installation
instructions
2. Start the crusher. You may like to set up the Direct-X or ASIO Engine (take a quick look at the help)
3. Load the file “pocketdial.crx”. This set up the MIDI-Controller Tab matching the pocket dial crusher-X
presets.
4. Set up the following checkboxes (if you use the crusher the first time they will be checked correctly):
Uncheck: Edit | Options | Load/Undo|Change on Loading/Undo/Redo | Midi Settings
Crusher | MIDI Setup | General | Hardware Support
Check :
5. Also check, that you have defined a Midi-In device, which is connected with pocketDial and also a
legal Midi-Out device (otherwise the IncDec-controller maybe will not work )
6. Close the doors and windows, order a pizza, turn up your amps, start the crusher-X engine, run thru
the demo Loadlist and turn the pocket dial knobs! Fasten your seatbelts! No warranty for becoming
addicted ;-)
Please register on www.crusher-x.de if you like that experience and need more features.

Additional technical information
Merge capacity
In case of a high data density at the MIDI input the Pocket Diall will not be able to add it's own data as
the MIDI transmission rate is limited and cannot be increased by the Pocket Dial. To avoid this the MIDI
In data should be reduced to a lower transmission rate.
Scanning rate of the encoders
The scanning rate was adjusted to a value that allows a good fine resolution for slow movements but no
plugging up of the MIDI transmission for fast movements. Besides most of the MIDI devices would not
be able to process such high data rates without problems.
Data feedback
Pay attention to two restrictions concerning data feedback for absolute data:
•
•
Only MIDI controllers (control change messages) are processed, i.e. no pitch bend, after touch,
NRPN, XG SysEx strings can be updated. Please refer to the preset descriptions for details.
For the feedback function all controllers must have the same MIDI channel assignments in the 4
presets (bank 1~4) that have to be updated. This means that the MIDI channel for knob 1 has to be
the same in all 4 presets, the MIDI channel for knob 2 has to be the same in all 4 presets and so on.
To simplify matters we recommend to use the same MIDI channel for all controllers (e.g. the master
channel) or to assign the MIDI channels 1~16 to the 16 knobs. If the feedback/update function
seems not to work correct please check if the same channel assignments are made in the 4 presets
to be updated. In the factory presets this is not true in every case as we wanted to keep the first 64
presets compatible with Pocket Control and Pocket Fader (e.g. presets 5,6,7,8). If you want to use
one of these preset sets please modify the MIDI channel assignments with the editor program so
that they correspond to the above remarks.
Memory for absolute values
As described in the chapter 'Functions of the buttons' the 16 absolute values of the 16 knobs can be
stored in the preset – if desired. When a preset is called up (by DIP switch changing of incoming MIDI
program change message) this value is transferred into the 16 work buffers of the 16 knobs. But the
data are not yet sent via MIDI. If this is desired one has to trigger a snapshot (see chapter 'Functions of
the buttons') or to operate the knob(s) in question. This was made intentionally as it might be desirable
to select a new preset without transmitting the new absolute data but to update the new data from the
device controlled by the Pocket Dial after the preset selection.
Of course the storage of absolute data has no meaning if relative data (inc/dec) are used.
The storage of absolute data may be used to obtain a small sound preset management. In this case the
presets contain the same assignments knobs to MIDI controllers and only the stored absolute values are
different – provided the number of available presets (128) is sufficient for this application.
No storage of absolute data in preset 128
The set of absolute data in preset 128 is used for internal purposes and cannot be used to store
absolute data. If this part of the memory is read out (e.g. with an editor program) of a snapshot is
triggered always the value 127 appears.
