1 INTRODUCTION AND CONCEPT
1.1 WELCOME TO THE NOBELS MF-2
Thank you for choosing the MF-2. This unit will help you make music more easily than ever
before. We've made sure that each MF-2 is set up in the factory for immediate use, so if you
are anxious to begin using your new unit straight away, GO AHEAD! When you need to know
the myriad possibilities in more detail, come back to this manual - you'll find that your
MF-2 can help you in hundreds of ways.
1.2
CONVENTIONS
There are two menus EDIT and SETUP. In the EDIT mode you can change local parameters for the 128
programs. In the SETUP mode you can adjust values for the overall (=global) functions.
The functions of the EDIT mode are left next the corresponding footswitch printed in bold letters.
Beneath, in italic letters, the description for the SETUP mode.
WHAT IS MIDI?
MIDI stands for Musical Instrumental Digital Interface, a universal standard allowing
different instruments to communicate with each other. As well as note messages, MIDI can
be used to adjust Program Control (ie sound selection), Volume, Expression, Aftertouch etc.
Because MIDI operates on channels (just like a TV set), up to sixteen different devices to be
independently controlled - the MF-2 is your remote controller.
WHY DO I NEED THE MF-2?
As you acquire more MIDI-compatible units, your MIDI setup, either on stage or in the studio,
can become very complex. Each device has a set of buttons operating each of its functions,
and in the end you could spend more time pressing buttons than playing music. The MF-2
will make your setup easy to manage, acting as the central controller for all these functions
on all your MIDI devices.
WHAT WILL MY MF-2 DO FOR ME?
Once you start working with your MF-2, you will wonder how you ever managed without it.
Use the MF-2's 10 pedals to send MIDI Bank and Program changes, to select switches, outputs
and controllers, and to control a variety of other functions including Touch and Fade. Plug
in up to four foot switches and four expression pedals to control different MIDI devices. You
can even control functions like Channel Select or Reverb On/Off on non-MIDI units like
amplifiers etc. With the MF-2 you have access to your entire MIDI setup at the touch of a
pedal.
Functions and options are adjusted with the SELECT-key. All values can be set either with the UP/DOWN
footswitches or with the 0..9 footswitches.
All menus are left with the ENTER key. Local changes for one program should be saved with the STORE
key. After reaching the end of the menus the display will show the changes with a flashing "t"
If you do not save, all changes will be lost. All changes are direct which means if you change the changes
(e.g.: midi volume) are right now herable! Destructive or special functions, like the factory setup, are
recalled by doing a special procedure (=Power Up), to prevent accidently killing your saved settings!
If you have any further questions, suggestions or other comments please contact your local
dealer or write to us direct at:
Please enjoy using your MF-2. Full instructions for programming and special functions are
given in detail inside this manual.

MIDI BANK SELECT
You can choose up to 16 different BANK SELECTS for the MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE. Needed values
(MSB, LSB) can be adjusted separately.
This is a little complicated, but there is no way to make it easier. Please refer to the
Midi implementation charts of the connected midi devices!
Main function of the BANK SELECT:
- CONTROLLER 0 (MSB) sends a value from 0 to 127.
- CONTROLLER 32 (LSB) sends a value from 0 to 127.
- The following MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE will change PROGRAM and BANK.
Default:
3.4
BANK SELECTS 0..15 = 0
MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE
Each of the activated OUTPUT can send one MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE.
Possible values:
Program Changes = 1-128 (true MIDI
= 0-127)

= Sends MIDI START (Sequencer, Drummachine)
Stop
= Sends MIDI STOP (Sequencer, Drummachine)
Continue
= Sends MIDI CONTINUE (Sequencer, Drummachine)
Reset
= Sends MIDI RESET (Keyboard, Soundmodule)
Default:
MIDI VOLUME
On each OUTPUT you can send one MIDI VOLUME (=Controller 7). Only if the MIDI VOLUME is
switched to ON and also is selected for the corresponding OUTPUTS!
Possible values: 0-127 and OFF
Default: VOLUME = 64; In the SETUP = OFF
SWITCHES
Each program stores a combination of the four outputs for the switches. The main function of each
switch must be adjusted in the SETUP.

SWITCH 1,2 = Pos. latched switch SWITCH 3,4 = Pos. unlatched switch / Time=50
3.7
TOUCH MODE
You can mark each of the 128 programs to be a TOUCH function.(BANK mode only!) Touch means:
- footswitch [0..9] is pressed: The MF-2 changes to the selected program.
- footswitch [0..9] is released: The MF-2 changes to the previously selected program.
Default: TOUCH = OFF
3.8
FADE MODE
On each OUTPUT you can send a FADE function. You have 2 kinds of FADE:
FADE-IN: The MIDI VOLUME runs from "0" up to the values of the MIDI VOLUME set
in the actual program.
(= Smooth increasing of the volume)
FADE-OUT: The MIDI VOLUME runs from the values of the MIDI VOLUME set in the actual
program down to 0.
(= Smooth decreasing of the volume)
Default: FADE-IN 1..128 = OFF, t= 50
3.9
MIDI RECEIVE CHANNEL
The MF-2 can be switched with any midi device connected to the MF-2's MIDI IN jack. First the
DISPLAY shows the received MIDI PROGRAMM CHANGE but after a moment it shows the previously
manually selected PROGRAM (=flashing). (E.g.: BANK mode: The MF-2 leaves not the selected bank!)
Possible values: 1-16, OFF, OMNI
OFF = receives no MIDI PROGRAM CHANGES
OMNI = receives all MIDI PROGRAM CHANGES
Default: MIDI RECEIVE CHANNEL = 1
3.10 ECONOMY
The MF-2 has four different steps of brightness for the display. You will waiste less energy if you choose
the darkest step. The "automatic": If you activate the automatic the MF-2 will be switched to the darkest
when the power goes down. Additionall the left marked point "Lo-Bat." starts flashing.

FACTORY SETUP
PHANTOM POWER
Some other manufacturer are also using the MIDI jacks to distribute power from one
unit to another (Phantom power). This is easy to handle and you can probably save
nerves, time and money which means you need one power adaptor less. The
required power may now be supplied from your MIDI effect or keyboard. For
this make sure the connected power supply is strong enough to supply all
connected units!
The idea of the polarity and the connection is described in the ELECTRONIC
MUSICIAN issued #12/89. Some other manufacturer are also using this idea!
CONTROLLER CURVE:
Select one of the ten predefined curves.
Possible values: CURVE: Linear, A2, A3, C2, C3 (each forward and backward)
Default:
CURVE: Linear - forward
3.12 SPECIAL FUNCTIONS (POWERUP)
Please check the polarity and voltage before using phantom power to prevent any
damages of the connected units.
.1
Supply another unit with phantom power:
You can supply another unit with phantom power by using the MIDI IN (6) jack of the MF-
2.
The MF-2 now supplies the connected device.
.2
Supply the MF-2 from another unit
Connect the MIDI IN jack of the other midi unit (=transmitter) to the MIDI OUT jack (7) of
the MF-2 (=receiver). To switch the MF-2 on set the POWER switch to position "PHANTOM".
Attention: Make sure you use (buy) a 5-wired MIDI-cable!
4.4
Warning - Overwrites internal data. Your own settings will be restored with the
default values!
You need a specified "PASSWORD" to activate this function (see page 14; chapter 8.5)
6
CONNECTING A POWER SUPPLY
BACKUP POWER
The MF-2 uses an internal lithium battery to hold the internal data (memory) during power off. The life
is approx. 5~7 years. The MF-2 permanently checks it state. If the backup battery is down, the middle
point of the 3 digit LED DISPLAY will flash. Save all data (MIDI DUMP TRANSMIT) and let the battery
be exchanged by an authorized service center. (see technical information; page 14, chapter 8.9)

5 MODES
QUICK START
5.1
QUICK START
Normally the MF-2 is right now ready to work. No further settings are neccessary to use it as a standard
MIDI footcontroller:
.1
.2
Depending of the selected mode (bank - direct) you can send out MIDI PROGRAM CHANGES
Each of the 128 programs are equal with MIDI PROGRAM CHANGES 1-128.
Attention: Some midi devices are displaying TRUEMIDI 0-127. For this you have
to know that 0=1, 1=2, ..127=128!
.3
The default MIDI TRANSMIT CHANNEL is 1.
5.2
CONNECT TO THE SWITCHES
You can choose between two different modes to use the MF-2 as a MIDI footcontroller: The BANK mode
or the DIRECT mode.
5.5
.1
Press the MODE key until the DISPLAY shows:
.2
.3
After pressing the "ENTER" *1 key the BANK MODE is activ. (*1 or footswitch!)
Use the footswitches "UP" or "DOWN" to select the banks 0-12.
If one of the footswitches "UP" or "DOWN" is hold for a longer period the bank will be changed
faster.
Press any footswitch 0..9 to select the requested program. After that the MF-2 sends out the
midi information of the selected program.
Each further step on a footswitch 0..9 selects another program and recalls it immediately.
.4
.5
Connect the units with a standard cable to one of the jacks SWITCHES 1..4.
Note: Because there are a limit number of possible MIDI programs 1..128, bank
number 0 and 13 have one program less.
This means program number "0" and "129" are not accessable!
.1
.2
t
5.6
DIRECT MODE
In this mode you can activate a program by selecting the numbers with the footswitches 0..9 and
activate it by pressing the "UP" or "DOWN" footswitch.
If needed you can use the SWITCHES
1..4 to switch between two sources. For
that you must use a stereo cable. See
the diagram for more information how
to do that:
5.3
BANK MODE
The bank mode should be used to change between programs with a single step on a footswitch 0-9.
The MF-2 is able to remote control up to four non-MIDI units with the internal relays (SWITCHES
1..4). For example: Channelselect, Reverb, Tremolo can be controlled by the MF-2. Each of the
internal relays is not connected to the other nor to the MF-2. This prevents problems with humnoise.
