Installation

1.

Double-click the

.exe

(Windows

®

) or

.pkg

(Mac

®

OS X

®

) installer file you downloaded.

2.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

After the installation has completed, open the

Code 61 Preset Editor

by doing the following:

Windows:

Click the

Start Menu

, click

All Programs

, click the

M-Audio

folder, and then click

Code 61 Preset Editor

.

Mac OS X:

Double-click

Code 61 Preset Editor

in

Applications

.

Operation

Getting Started

To open the Code 61 Editor:

1.

Optional:

Connect your Code 61 keyboard to your computer using a standard USB cable.

(If you are connecting your keyboard to a USB hub, make sure it is a powered hub.) You can still use the editor without connecting a Code 61, but you will not be able to send presets to it or retrieve presets from it.

2.

Open the Code 61 Editor. The window will show a graphical representation of your Code

61 with all of its editable controls.

Managing Your Presets

About Presets

A preset is a preset file (

.Code61

) 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 61 keyboard can store

12

presets at a time. You can store additional presets on your computer to load onto your Code 61 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

61 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 61 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 61 Editor. You can

load

a preset from your computer or

retrieve

a preset from your connected Code 61 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 61 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 (

.Code61

), and click

Open

.

To retrieve a preset from your connected Code 61:

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 61 (

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 61. See

Sending

Presets

below to learn how to send the edited preset to your Code 61.

7

Saving Presets

Saving a preset on your computer lets you edit it or send it to your Code 61 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 61 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

.Code61

file.

8

Sending Presets

Sending a preset to your connected Code 61 lets you transfer the preset from the editor to your Code 61 keyboard’s internal memory. All MIDI assignments that you see in the editor will be sent to your Code 61.

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 61 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 send a preset to your connected Code 61:

1.

Click

File

and then click

Send Preset

. Alternatively, press

Ctrl

+

Shift

+

S

(Windows) or

Control

+

Shift

+

S

(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 61 (

RAM

).

3.

Click

Send

to confirm your choice, or click the

X

in the upper-right corner to close the window and cancel the operation. (Sending the preset will overwrite that preset number on your Code 61.)

HID

The HID (human interface device) protocol lets devices send standard computer keyboard keystrokes. USB game controllers are an example of this, acting as an alternative to your computer’s keyboard. Your Code 61 keyboard’s assignable

buttons

can also use the HID protocol, letting you configure certain buttons to send your most-often used keystrokes to your software (for example,

Control

+

C

to copy).

Use the

Keybed

The

keybed

(the piano keys) on your Code 61 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 61. 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 61 keyboard will be active.

When this box is unchecked, the zone on your Code 61 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.

49
