Managing Your Presets
About Presets
A preset is a preset file (.Code25) containing all of the assignments you make in the Editor.
This includes MIDI assignments, HID keystroke assignments, and color assignments. Using
presets lets you maintain several different control configurations to use in different situations.
For instance, you may use different presets with different kinds of software, or you may use
some presets for production and others for performance.
Your Code 25 keyboard can store 12 presets at a time. You can store additional presets on
your computer to load onto your Code 25 keyboard with this editor.
This chapter explains how to load presets into the editor (Loading & Retrieving Presets),
save presets onto your computer (Saving Presets), and send presets to your connected Code
25 keyboard (Sending Presets).
Note: The current preset’s name is shown in the upper-right corner
of the window. This is the name that appears in your Code 25
keyboard’s display when you load it. To change the name, click the
field and enter a new name. Preset names can be 6 characters long
and can include the following characters: A–Z, 0–9, [ ] / \ - = _ ' .
and spaces.

Loading & Retrieving Presets
To edit a preset, you first have to load it into the Code 25 Editor. You can load a preset from
your computer or retrieve a preset from your connected Code 25 keyboard.
Note: The current preset’s name is shown in the upper-right corner
of the window. This is the name that appears in your Code 25
keyboard’s display when you load it. To change the name, click the
field and enter a new name. Preset names can be 6 characters long
and can include the following characters: A–Z, 0–9, [ ] / \ - = _ ' .
and spaces.
To load a preset from your computer, do one of the following:
• Click File and then click Load Preset.
• Press Ctrl+O (Windows) or Control+O (Mac OS X).
After that, locate the desired preset file (.Code25), and click Open.
To retrieve a preset from your connected Code 25:
1. Click File and then click Retrieve Preset. Alternatively, press Ctrl+Shift+R (Windows) or
Control+Shift+R (Mac OS X).
2. In the window that appears, click the drop-down menu to select the desired preset
number (Preset 1–12) or the current settings of your Code 25 (RAM).
3. Click Get to confirm your choice, or click the X in the upper-right corner to close the
window and cancel the operation.
Important: Editing this preset will not affect the preset stored on your Code 25. See Sending
Presets below to learn how to send the edited preset to your Code 25.

Saving Presets
Saving a preset on your computer lets you edit it or send it to your Code 25 in the future. All
MIDI assignments that you see in the editor will be saved in the preset.
Note: The current preset’s name is shown in the upper-right corner
of the window. This is the name that appears in your Code 25
keyboard’s display when you load it. To change the name, click the
field and enter a new name. Preset names can be 6 characters long
and can include the following characters: A–Z, 0–9, [ ] / \ - = _ ' .
and spaces.
To save the preset, do one of the following:
• Click File and then click Save Preset.
• Press Ctrl+S (Windows) or Control+S (Mac OS X).
If this is the first time you are saving the preset, select the desired location, enter a file name,
and click Save. The preset will be saved as a .Code25 file.

Sending Presets
Sending a preset to your connected Code 25 lets you transfer the preset from the editor to
your Code 25 keyboard’s internal memory. All MIDI assignments that you see in the editor will
be sent to your Code 25.
Note: The current preset’s name is shown in the upper-right corner
of the window. This is the name that appears in your Code 25
keyboard’s display when you load it. To change the name, click the
field and enter a new name. Preset names can be 6 characters long
and can include the following characters: A–Z, 0–9, [ ] / \ - = _ ' .
and spaces.

Keybed
The keybed (the piano keys) on your Code 25 can be divided into 1–4 “zones.” When zones
are active (when the Zone button and one or more Zone 1–4 buttons are lit), each zone can
send its controls’ MIDI messages over its own MIDI channel. You can assign the parameters
for the keybed/zones in MIDI Mode only.
Tip: This feature is great for dividing your Code keyboard between different virtual instruments
or synthesizers. For example, you can create two zones, each using a different MIDI channel,
and play and control two virtual instruments simultaneously—one with each half of the keys.
Click one of the Zone 1–4 piano keys to set the MIDI assignments for the corresponding zone
on your Code 25. All 4 zones have the same parameters, which you can set independently.
These are the available parameters:
• On/Off: When this box is checked, the zone on your Code 25 keyboard will be active.
When this box is unchecked, the zone on your Code 25 keyboard will be inactive.
• First: The zone’s lowest key will correspond with this note.
• Last: The zone’s highest key will correspond with this note.
48
• Octave: The zone’s keys will send their notes using this octave shift (from their original
position on the keybed).
Note: The zone octave and transposition are independent from the keyboard’s overall
octave and transposition, but all of these affect the note a key sends out.
• Transpose: The zone’s keys will send their notes using this transposition (from their
original position on the keybed).
Note: The zone octave and transposition are independent from the keyboard’s overall
octave and transposition, but all of these affect the note a key sends out.
• Program: The zone will send this program number when you press a key in it.
• MSB: The zone will send this Bank MSB (Most Significant Byte) number when you press a
key in it.
• LSB: The zone will send this Bank LSB (Least Significant Byte) number when you press a
key in it.
• Chan: The zone will send its messages over this channel. Select the global channel
(Global), a specific channel (Channel 1–16), a zone (Zone 1–4), or all channels (Omni).
Note: Any other controls whose Chan settings are set to this zone will send their messages
using this channel, as well.

Code 25 keyboard, regardless of the current preset.
To open Global Settings, click File and then click
Global Settings.
To send the global settings to your connected
Code 25, click Send Settings.
To retrieve the global settings from your connected
Code 25, click Get Settings.
These are the available settings:
• Channel: This menu lets you set the global channel (Channel 1–16). Any other controls or
zones whose Chan settings are set to Global will send their messages using this channel.
• XY Pad Curve: This field determines the velocities of the notes the X-Y pad sends as you
move your finger across it. This setting affects the X-Y pad in MIDI Note Mode only. See
Appendix > Velocity Curves > X-Y Pad for descriptions of the different settings.
• Mackie Control/HUI: This menu determines whether the faders, buttons, and encoders
can be set to Mackie Control Mode (Mackie Control) or HUI Mode (HUI).
When set to Mackie Control, you can use the Fader Mode, Button Mode, and/or Encoder
Mode buttons to set the faders, buttons, and/or encoders Mackie Control Mode.
When set to HUI, you can use the Fader Mode, Button Mode, and/or Encoder Mode
buttons to set the faders, buttons, and/or encoders HUI Mode.

• Key Octave: This field determines the current octave shift of the entire keybed (-3 to 4).
Note: The keyboard’s overall octave and transposition are independent from the zones’
octaves and transpositions, but all of these affect the note a key sends out.
• Key Transpose: This field determines the current transposition of the entire keybed (-12
to 12).
Note: The keyboard’s overall octave and transposition are independent from the zones’
octaves and transpositions, but all of these affect the note a key sends out.
• Key Curve: This field determines the velocity sensitivity of the keybed—the amount of
force required to generate a note with a specific velocity. See Appendix > Velocity
Curves > Keybed for descriptions of the different settings.
• Pad Octave: This field determines the current octave shift of the pads (-5 to 5).
• Pad Transpose: This field determines the current transposition of the pads (-12 to 12).
• Pad Curve: This field determines the velocity sensitivity of the pads—the amount of force
required to generate a note with a specific velocity. See Appendix > Velocity Curves >
Pads for descriptions of the different settings.
• Encoder Curve: This field determines the rate of acceleration as you turn an encoder. See
Appendix > Velocity Curves > Encoders for descriptions of the different settings.
• Program: This field determines the number of the program change message that will be
sent when you click Send Settings.
• MSB: This field determines the number of the Bank MSB (Most Significant Byte) message
that will be sent when you click Send Settings.
Note: A Bank LSB or Bank MSB number may not have any effect until you send a program
change message after it.
• LSB: This field determines the number of the Bank LSB (Least Significant Byte) message
that will be sent when you click Send Settings.
Note: A Bank LSB or Bank MSB number may not have any effect until you send a program
change message after it.
