Features of the AXON
Your AXON is fitted with a novel method of pitch recognition
working so quickly and safely that you can use your AXON also
with a bass guitar. At present, no comparable device offers you
this feature.
The AXON is unique because it recognizes the pick position of
each string, and the AXON offers you new possibilities to
control your MIDI instrument.
Your AXON is able to reduce the MIDI output data stream as far
as possible to a minimum. According to the setting of the preset
parameter, further reliefs are the result. At previous devices,
Pitch Bend data load the MIDI interface strongly.
If you did not work with a comparable device before, you will
get to know some terms which are perhaps new for you.
Therefore we would like to explain here the extraordinary
possibilities you can use with your AXON.
The most interesting and the most extraordinary features of your
AXON are undoubtedly the different split possibilities.
You can set a string split in order to divide the six strings of your
guitar into two parts. In each part, your MIDI instrument could
give out another sound. For that purpose you will fix a split
point - in this case a string number - in order to set the border
between the two parts.
Assign a fret split in order to divide the neck of your guitar into
two parts.
Think of an accord accompaniment which you play in lowpitched registers with an optional sound. Then you change to a
solo which is played in higher notes with another sound. In this
case the split point is a fret number.
The most unique feature of the AXON NGC 60 is the possibility
of pick splitting.
One split point can be defined to split the pick range between the
pickup and the neck into two pick regions. An individual sound
can be assigned to each of these regions.
At each of the three split possibilities you can additionally use
the pick control function. You can change the value of each
MIDI controller with the pick position. Keyboard players often
use a modulation wheel in order to produce vibrato or filter
effects. With the pick control function you have the same
possibilities, only by changing the pick position.
How to use the Hold Pedal
The Hold Pedal can be used to play an additional, third sound of
your MIDI instrument. In this case the current split becomes
temporarily ineffective and you can use another sound. All notes
which sound while releasing the pedal will sound until the next
pressure on the Hold Pedal. Play a chord by depressed Hold
Pedal. Without muting the chord, you release the Hold Pedal
now and the Hold sound will be locked. You can play again with
the current preset to your chord accompaniment. After pressing
once more you can play a new chord, the old one will be
replaced by a new one. Or you simply turn off the chord while
pressing once the Hold Pedal shortly without playing at that
time.
Additionally, the pick control function can be used as well for
the Hold sound.
You can also send a pre-programmed MIDI controller to the
MIDI instrument by pressing the Hold Pedal. This could be the
controller No. 64 (Sustain), the controller No. 65 (Portamento)
or even the controller No. 93 (Chorus).
After pressing the Hold Pedal you are moreover able to freeze
the already played tones in order to play only on your guitar.
Then all other MIDI sounds are suppressed. You can also realize
a bypass function in order to hear temporarily your guitar sound
alone.
How to use the Chain Pedal
If you connect a footswitch to the chain socket, you can call up
successive presets. Pressing once the footswitch activates the
next preset, hitting the footswitch quickly twice triggers the
previous preset.
How to use the Mono Input
All instruments with pickups can be directly connected by a jack
cable to the MONO input of your AXON. At the front of the
AXON is the potentiometer which helps you to set the
sensitivity of the MONO input. Please consider that not all
features of the AXON are available when using the MONO
input. The extremely fast pitch recognition is inactive. In this
case you work with a pitch recognition which is a little bit
slower. But it is comparable to devices which were already
offered by competitors. String Split, Pick Split and the Pick
Control function are no longer available.
The Fret Split depends now on the pitch because your AXON
does not know anything about your frets. Think of a violin or
think of instruments which you have to connect by a
microphone. There are no limits to your imagination but you can
not foresee the results in each case. We had already achieved
good results using guitar and bass.
How to use the optional sound module
If your AXON is fitted by an embedded sound module, 128
GENERAL MIDI SOUNDS in excellent quality will
immediately be available for you. Additionally, the sound
module has an installed reverb as well as a chorus effect which
can be called up by the AXON. Combined with a sequencer or
similar devices you have access to 480 sounds. Furthermore, 11
different drumkits are available. The complete effect range
consists of 11 reverb types, 11 chorus types as well as 42
variation programs. Please take details from the enclosed
description of the sound module.
If you use a sequencer program, please connect the MIDI OUT
of your AXON to the MIDI IN of your computer, and the MIDI
IN of your AXON to the MIDI OUT of the computer. In this
case the GLOBAL parameter "LOCAL" on the AXON has to be
LOCAL OFF.
Special
functions
Two special functions of your AXON are an exact tuning aid
which is simple to use as well as level control that helps to avoid
overload.
How to start
Before starting the AXON please make the necessary
connections. Please consider that you must switch on the AXON
after turning on your MIDI instrument first, because the AXON
sends directly initializing data to your MIDI instrument. That is
why you have to check the connections of your MIDI cable from
the AXON to your MIDI instrument.
How to connect your guitar interface
The UP/DOWN buttons of your guitar interface are identical to
the +/- value keys. You can use them to call up the different
presets of your AXON. Moreover it is possible to change the
parameter values in edit mode from your guitar. By using the
volume regulator of your guitar interface, you can control the
volume of a sound at your MIDI instrument.
How to connect your MIDI Equipment
Please connect the MIDI OUT of your AXON to the MIDI IN of
your MIDI instrument. For that purpose, use a 5 pin commercial
DIN cable/ MIDI cable. If you employ a sequencer program,
connect the MIDI OUT of your AXON to the MIDI IN of your
computer as well as the MIDI IN of your MIDI instrument to the
MIDI OUT of your computer.
How to mount an AXON in a 1 9 " rack
You can mount your AXON in a 19" rack by using the optional
installation frame. In order to fix, use only the original screws. If
you prefer another form of mounting, remove first the rubber foot
from the bottom of the AXON. Please use only screws of the type
M3 to fix the 19"' rack with the bottom of the AXON and take care
that the screws do not reach longer than 4 mm into the AXON.
Longer screws can damage the inside of the device.
Parameters
All parameters are printed above and below the middle LED line in
order to see immediately the current parameter. So you must not
keep figures in mind which belong to some parameters. The GLOBAL parameters are above, the SPLIT and HOLD parameters are
below the LED line.
Global Parameter
If you use your AXON for the first time you have to check the
settings of some global parameter in correspondence to your MIDI
instrument:
Please check the basic MIDI channel and tune your guitar with the
embedded tuning aid of your AXON. If you are in a hurry and if
you would like to play immediately with your AXON, read the
explanations in the sections BASIC CH and tuning of the guitar.
You must ensure that the connected MIDI instrument receives Pitch
Bend Range information, otherwise you set this value at your MIDI
instrument to 12. Then you leap over all further parameters and you
can test the factory presets.
In order to change one of the GLOBAL parameters switch your
AXON in edit mode. Press the +/- PARAMETER buttons at the
same time. The EDIT LED lights up and the AXON is now in edit
mode. Please press the SELECT key several times until the LED
shows the word GLOBAL. The first parameter LED appears and
indicates you that you can change the first of the global parameter
(basic MIDI channel). Press the +/- PARAMETER buttons until the
LED of your desired parameter blinks. At the display, the current
value of the optional parameter is always shown. Change the value
of the wanted parameter by using the +/- value buttons. If you are
ready with your settings, leave the edit mode while pressing the +/PARAMETER keys at the same time. The EDIT LED becomes dark
and you are in the preset mode again.
BASIC CH
Basic MIDI channel: Setting I... 10
Your AXON needs maximal seven successive MIDI channels in
order to control a connected MIDI tone generator. One channel is
necessary for each string and an additional channel is required if
you would like to use the special function of the Hold Pedal. With
the basic MIDI channel you assign the first of seven channels which
will be used by your AXON. All further channels follow implicitly.
PBD RANGE
Pitchbend Range OFF/I...24
Since your connected MIDI instrument should convert the pitch
changes of your guitar correctly, you have to set the Pitch Bend
Range of your MIDI instrument to the same value as this one on the
AXON. The value shows the maximum number of semitone steps
that can be converted with Pitch Bend information, without
triggering a new note on your MIDI instrument. If your MIDI
instrument allows, this value should be set to at least 12 (one
octave) or 24 for bass guitars (two octaves) .
OFF
Your AXON does not send Pitch Bend information to the MIDI
instrument.
SEND PBDRG
Send Pitchbend Range: Setting ON/OFF
If you are sure that the Pitch Bend Range of your connected MIDI
instrument and of your AXON are set to the same value, you can
switch this parameter OFF.
This parameter has to be set to ON if your MIDI instrument stores
Pitch Bend Range in each preset separately. In this case the AXON
12
sends the Pitch Bend Range information after each program change
immediately again. This is necessary by most KORG synthesizers.
and probably by some other manufacturers. If your MIDI
instruments store Pitch Bend Range globally, just like the AXON
itself, this parameter should be OFF. If you are not familiar with
your MIDI instrument, you should set this parameter to ON. Then
your AXON will possibly give out some unnecessary MIDI data but
you will hardly notice it.
STRGMODE
String Mode : How to set COMMON or SEPARATE
COMMON Mode
In common mode all strings of your guitar are assigned to the basic
channel. In order to avoid conflicts with still sounding notes of the
same channel, no Pitch Bend information is sent in this mode if you
play more than one note. So a solistic play is possible although
restrictive. If your MIDI instrument can only receive at one MIDI
channel, you should use this mode.
In separate holdmode all data are given out at basic channel +1
while pressing the Hold Pedal.
SEPARATE Mode
Each string is assigned to an own MIDI channel:
El : Basic MIDI channel
B2 : Basic MIDI channel+1
G3 : Basic MIDI channel+2
D4 : Basic MIDI channel+3
A5 : Basic MIDI channel+4
E6 : Basic MIDI channel+5
The SEPARATE Holdmode is basic MIDI channel + 6. If your
MIDI instrument can receive data on several channels, you should
always use this mode. Restriction mentioned above in the
COMMON mode is not valid here. The split functions can only be
used in SEPARATE mode.
HOLD MODE
Hold mode (common/ separate/ sustain/ controller)
While pressing the Hold Pedal you can access four different
functions:" Common, separate, sustain and controller".
COMMON
While pressing the Hold Pedal, no other MIDI data are sent. A
previous chord will be kept frozen on your MIDI instrument as long
as you keep the pedal down. Herewith, you realize also a bypass
function, i.e. as long as you press the Hold Pedal in this mode, your
AXON doesn't give out further MIDI data.
SEPARATE
A further MIDI channel is available. You can for example underlay
a solo with an optional accompaniment. For that purpose you play a
chord while pressing the Hold Pedal and releasing it then. You can
play again your AXON now and at an additional channel the
already played chord sounds. If you press the Hold Pedal again, all
notes are turned off and you can play a new chord again.
SUSTAIN
While pressing the Hold Pedal, the controller 64 (Sustain) with a
maximum value of 127 is given out. Play notes on your guitar.
Every note you play as long as you have the Pedal pressed will be
sustained, much like the sustain pedal on a piano. Leaving the pedal
releases the sustained notes. The same controller (64) is given out
again, but with the value 0. All played notes will sound then
normally.
CONTROLLER : (0...127)
It is possible to call up one of the 128 MIDI controller. While
pressing the Hold Pedal, the selected controller is given out with the
maximum value 127 (7Fh). As you release the Hold Pedal again, the
controller will be sent out with value 0. Appropriate controllers are
Sustain (64), Portamento (65) or for example Chorus (93). In the
appendix you can find a detailed list of all MIDI controllers.
TRIGGER LEV
Trigger Level (0...9)
You assign by this parameter the weakest picking level that causes a
NOTE ON event to be sent. A low value means that a weak picking
triggers a tone; a high value means that a strong picking is required.
TUNE BASE
Tune Base -99...+99
Your AXON generates MIDI sounds relating to a tune base of 440
Hz plus a deviation which is set by this parameter. If your musicians
play instruments which can only be tuned with great effort (for
example a piano), it is better if you fit your AXON to this situation.
We recommend the following procedure if the tune base deviates
from 440 Hz: You tune first the open A string carefully by ear on the
basis of the instrument (for example a piano). While playing now
the open A string, your AXON analyses the coming vibration and
sets itself the Tune Base Parameter at the correct value. The
deviation in cents is shown at the display. Naturally, you can change
the value also with the +/- buttons, if you know exactly the value.
Then you tune the remaining strings of your guitar with the
embedded tuning aid of your AXON. If you play alone, you should
set the tune base to the value 0.
SENS
Sensitivity
The AXON converts audio signals into digital information. They are
very sensitive to overloading. But you shouldn't drive your AXON
too low. By using the SENS function you can optimally prepare
your guitar to play together with the AXON. While doing this, your
AXON helps you. During play on your guitar, 6 vertical bars appear
at the display. They correspond to the strings 1 to 6 of your guitar.
As soon as you play on your guitar, those strings with vertical bars
are indicated at the display for which your AXON had not found an
optimal setting. Then you have to play the concerning string again.
Generally, it is unimportant whether one string or more strings are
picked at the same time. As soon as an optimal value is established
the 'display shows - - -.
You can call up this function as often as you like, perhaps in order
to increase the sensitivity later. For that purpose, you repeat the
above mentioned procedure, but you play less powerful on your
guitar. Your AXON will then increase the sensitivity. Please
consider that you can overload your AXON later by playing loudly
which can lead to faulty MIDI data.
VU METER
Volume Meter: OFF/ON
With this function you can turn on or off the optic level control. If
you switch on the level control the amplitude value of the last
picked string is indicated at the display by means of the horizontal
LED line in 3dB steps.The left LED always lights red and signalizes
that you turned on the level control. A possible overload of your
AXON is indicated by a short blink of this LED. Additionally, the
corresponding string number appears at the display which caused
this overload, then the previous display is shown. You should not
worry about an occasional overload. If overloads often happen, set
the sensitivity again (GLOBAL parameter SENS) in order to
guarantee a faultless functioning of your AXON.
LOCAL ON
Local Mode : ON/OFF
OFF:
The MIDI data that are received by your AXON are directly
transferred to the embedded sound module. Program change
commands do not influence the presets of your AXON. You cannot
receive System Exclusive Data for your AXON as well. Naturally.
you can keep changing the presets of your AXON with the buttons.
Concerning the receive, your AXON is now like a GM-expander.
This function addresses especially to persons who work with a
sequencer: All MIDI data, the AXON generates during play, are
exclusively given out via MIDI OUT. The sequencer will send data
through its MIDI OUT. Please connect the MIDI OUT of your
sequencer to the MIDI IN of your AXON in order to direct it to
your embedded sound module. The AUDIO OUT signals are
transferred via the non-used pins of the MIDI THRU of your
AXON. For that purpose, use the special cable included with your
AXON.
ON:
If you don't use a sequencer, you should set this parameter to ON.
Your AXON controls now the embedded sound module and program change commands influence your AXON. Of course, your
AXON keep sending data via MIDI OUT. Then, you can connect
further MIDI instruments to the MIDI OUT. If you do not have an
embedded sound module, you should set LOCAL to ON in order to
benefit from preset changes via MIDI IN.
(Reserved)
This parameter is planned for future extensions and has no function.
AXON NGC60 -VERSION 1.01

SYSEX SE
System Exclusive Send: I...128, ALL
Single or all presets of your AXON can be permanently stored and
reloaded later via MIDI, for example in a sequencer program.
Naturally you can copy data of your AXON in another AXON.
Please ensure that your recorder (for example sequencer) can
receive System Exclusive Messages. With the +/- value buttons,
choose the preset of which data you would like to store.
If you want to save all presets, decrease the indicated value as far as
: ALL appears at the display. Press the MODE and SELECT keys at
the same time in order to transfer the corresponding data via MIDI.
SYSEX RCV
System Exclusive Receive: I...128, ALL
This function allows you to overwrite single or all presets of your
AXON with new presets which you stored perhaps before in a
sequencer or other devices. It could also be the preset data of
another AXON which you would like to use in your AXON.
Choose the preset with the +/- value keys of which data you would
like to overwrite.
If you want to overwrite all presets, decrease the indicated value as
far as : ALL appears at the display. Press the MODE and SELECT
(STORE) buttons at the same time in order to receive the desired
data via MIDI. Your AXON is now able to receive. Trigger the
sending of data for example at your sequencer by starting it.
Naturally one track of the sequencer must contain necessary data. In
order to receive presets of another AXON you must send the
required data to the other AXON. For that purpose, see also SYSEX
SE.
You set the GLOBAL parameter LOCAL ON to OFF. A reception
of System Exclusive Messages is not possible then, since all
received MIDI data are transferred to the embedded sound module.
AXON NGC60

How to tune your guitar
Your AXON has an embedded tuning aid which you should use to
tune your guitar. Pressing the +/- VALUE keys (tuning) at the same
time you can always call up the tuning aid. For that purpose, you
can also use the UP/ DOWN buttons of your guitar interface. They
are identical to the +/- VALUE keys. Play a string on your guitar. At
the display the closest semitone is indicated. You see the deviation
of the tuning at the display of the horizontal LED. If the string is
tuned too sharp, your LED will light right from the middle LED. If
the string is tuned too flat, your LED will light left from the middle
LED. In case of exact tuning, the middle LED changes from red to
green.
You can leave the tuning aid by pressing the +/- VALUE keys at the
same time respectively the UP/ DOWN buttons of your interface.
How to call up the presets
After turning on the AXON it is in preset mode. Press the + or the VALUE button in order to call up different presets. At the display,
the current preset number is shown. The LEDs of the guitar symbol
at the front panel of the AXON indicate the current split type which
was stored in this preset.
You can use three different split possibilities in one preset but only
one of three is active. If all LEDs light, no split will be used in the
preset. That means you can play on your guitar with one sound.
Try the presets together with the different applications of the
Hold pedal.
How to change presets
Your AXON is delivered with presets being only propositions. Each
musician prefers other settings. You do not need all parameters in
order to create a new preset or to change an existing preset but you
should know about all possibilities of the AXON.
Press the + and - PARAMETER buttons in order to change your
AXON in edit mode. The LED EDIT lights. By pressing these
buttons again you can leave the edit mode.
In edit mode you can change the SPLIT and HOLD parameter
according to your ideas. All changes that you made at the
parameters do not overwrite the current preset. You must copy the
new settings to the same or another preset which is freely chosen
and which you would like to overwrite with new settings. After
copying, you can continue to edit in edit mode.

USER MANUAL
AXON NGC60
GUITAR TO MIDI CONVERTER
Another possibility is to leave the edit mode by pressing the +/parameter keys at the same time.
Note: If the preset number lights you will know that you changed
one or more parameters of a current preset without saving these new
settings. You can ignore this message by pressing the +/- PARAMETER buttons at the same time or you can store the new settings in a
preset. In both cases the preset display returns to the previous state.
How to store or overwrite presets
After you changed parameters according to your ideas you would
like to save them as presets. For that purpose you press the MODE
and SELECT button at the same time. At the display the current
preset number lights. You can overwrite the current preset with new
data, press the above mentioned keys again.
If you want to overwrite another preset with new settings, choose
your desired preset number with the +/- VALUE buttons at the
display. Then press the MODE and SELECT buttons (STORE) at
the same time and the indicated preset is overwritten by the settings.
In both cases you are in edit mode. In order to leave the edit mode,
press the + and - PARAMETER buttons at the same time and the
EDIT LED will be inactive.
How to copy presets
If you want to copy an existing preset, press the MODE and
SELECT button at the same time. The display of the current preset
lights now. Then you search a free preset with the +/- VALUE keys,
for example a preset that you would not like to use any more and
press again the MODE and SELECT button at the same time in
order to copy.
Split Parameter
By using splits you have got the possibility to assign different
sounds on your guitar. Another advantage is the recognition of the
picking position. According to the picking position you can call up
for example another sound on your MIDI instrument.
You change to edit mode by pressing the +/- PARAMETER buttons
at the same time. The LED EDIT lights. Choose one of the four split
possibilities by pressing the mode button again and again. You see
the split type on the guitar symbol at the front panel of the AXON.
Please consider that a split is always separated into two parts,
SPLIT 1 and SPLIT 2. Each split has to be defined.

STRING SPLIT
According to the split setting, either the upper two LEDs light
(SPLIT 2) or the lower two LEDs (SPLIT 1) light.
FRET SPLIT :
According to the split setting, either the middle two LEDs light
(SPLIT 1) or the right two LEDs (SPLIT 2) light.
PICK SPLIT :
According to the split setting, either the left LED (SPLIT 1)' or the
right LED (SPLIT 2) lights at the picking position.
SPLIT OFF :
All splits are turned off. All LEDs light.
By using the SELECT button you call up successively the following
edit or split possibilities:
The LEDs belonging to the split type light. Call up the desired
parameter with the +/- PARAMETER buttons for SPLIT 1 or SPLIT
2 and change each with the +/- VALUE keys. Play your guitar until
you find the setting that corresponds to your ideas.
SPLIT 1 :
SPLIT 2 :
The current splits belonging to the LEDs light alternately. At the
display SPLIT 1 and SPLIT 2 of a split type is shown which can
directly be changed with the +/- VALUE buttons. By pressing the
SELECT key again, you can leave this function. The last indicated
display value is now the new split point. The limit of the shown
value depends on the split type. The split point range for a guitar
with six strings is for example:
STRING SPLIT : This split type has a range from 1 to 6. 1 is the
high El string and 6 is the deep E6 string. Set for example the split
point to G3: SPLIT 1 goes now from El to G3 and SPLIT 2 goes
from G3 to E6.
FRET SPLIT : This split type has a range from 1 to 24. 1 is the first
fret after the nut and 24 is the fret at the base of the neck. Set for
example the split point at 15: SPLIT 1 goes now from 1 to 15 and
SPLIT 2 goes from 15 to 24.
PICK SPLIT : This split type has a range from 0 to 99. It goes from
the bridge to the neck and is therefore the usual picking position of
a guitar separated in 100 parts. Set for example the split point at 33:
SPLIT 1 goes now from 0 to 33 and SPLIT 2 goes from 33 to 99.
SPLIT POINT :
HOLD:
AXON NGC60
This function is only available if the GLOBAL parameter: HOLD
MODE is set to SEPARATE. Please read in the section Hold
parameter how to use and program the functions of the Hold pedal.
Otherwise leap over this function and press again the SELECT key.
-VERSION 1.01
20
GLOBAL:
When this LED lights it indicates you to change now the GLOBAL
parameter. If you do not want to change the GLOBAL parameters,
leap over this function by pressing the SELECT key. Then SPLIT 1
is shown with the LEDs of the guitar symbol and you can change
again the corresponding parameter of SPLIT 1.
PROGRAM
Program number of your MIDI instrument: Setting I... 128
Please choose your favourite sound on your MIDI instrument (or
on your embedded sound module) with this parameter. Your AXON
will send this program number to your MIDI instrument.
VOLUME
Volume (O... 127)
Perhaps the preset volume of your MIDI instrument is too low (or
too loud). This parameter allows you to increase/ decrease the
volume of your sound. Should the volume be too high for you, it is
possible to decrease the volume of your MIDI instrument with the
volume controller of your interface. For this reason you should set
the value of this parameter as high as possible. A later increase with
the volume controller of your interface is not possible.
TRANSPOSE
Transposing in semitones (-36...+36).
This parameter allows you to trigger notes at your MIDI instrument
which you can't reach with your guitar.
QUANTIZE
How to quantize pitches: Setting possibilities OFF/ON/AUTO
You determine by this parameter if pitch changes within a set pitch
bend range should be converted with continous or step by step
(quantized) pitch bend.
OFF:
All pitch changes ( for example pulling strings, hammer on's or
other playing techniques) are converted as exactly as possible (see
also Global Parameter: Pitch bend range).
ON:
Each pitch change won't be converted with pitch bend until the next
semitone is reached; then another pitch bend value gives out the
new pitch. Pulling strings continously and other playing techniques
won't be interpreted as expected. This setting is advantageous while
playing chords exclusively, since insignificant pitch changes
resulting from varying the string pressure have no influence any
more. Especially organ and piano tones would then sound very
unnaturally.
AUTO:
By this setting you make use of the unique possibility of the AXON,
to recognize your intention how to play. The pitch quantization is
switched on or off depending on the situation. Chords are now
exactly played (without pitch bend), whereas the pitch quantization
is for example turned off again for a solo with pulling string,
hammer on's and similar playing techniques.
PAN POS
Panorama Position (OFF, -15 ... MID ...+15)
This parameter allows you to displace the sound of your MIDI
instrument at the stereo panorama. The values 0 ... -15 mean that the
current sound is more shifted to the left channel, the values 0 ... +15
move the sound more to the right channel. The value MID
corresponds to the mid position. OFF expresses that your AXON
won't send this controller value to your MIDI instrument.
If your MIDI instrument has no panorama function, set this
parameter to OFF.
PAN SPREAD
Panorama spread (-15...+15)
By using the parameter PAN POS, you assign the stereo position for
all 6 strings. In order to avoid that all 6 strings are at the same stereo
position, you can use this parameter to spread the single strings
around the panorama position. Set the PAN POS value for example
to MID (to the MID position). Play on your guitar and vary the PAN
SPRD value.
Please consider that your MIDI instrument has to interpret
panorama information. For that purpose, read the user manual of
your MIDI instrument.
REVERB
Reverb portion of a sound (MIDI controller 91) : OFF/ 0.. 127
If your MIDI instrument is fitted with an embedded Reverb, this
parameter allows you to decide about the Reverb portion of your
used sound. This parameter must set to OFF, if your MIDI
instrument does not have an installed Reverb. Your AXON won't
transfer this controller via MIDI. The Reverb portion of the optional
sound module will be controlled with this parameter, too.
VEL SENS
Velocity sensitivity (0...127)
You can restrict the dynamic response at your MIDI instrument by
reducing the value of this parameter. If the value is 0, all played
notes are given out of your AXON with the same velocity value
(with a velocity value of 64) , independently of your dynamics. You
get the greatest dynamic response at the value of 127.
VEL OFFSET
Velocity offset (-63...+63)
If the dynamics of your AXON is reduced by the Velocity
Sensitivity parameter, the generated velocity values could be too
high/ too low. This parameter allows you to increase/ decrease the
velocity value again.
FINGER PICK
Finger picking : OFF/ON
This parameter switches on/ off several internal parameter, which
can be used for the finger picking technique at your AXON. In this
case, the pick split and the pick control function aren't available any
more. Please ensure that you hadn't used a pick split in the current
preset. Also the pick controller must be turned off (OFF).
PICK CTRL
Pick Controller (OFF, O... 127)
As mentioned above, your AXON has the unique possibility to
recognize the picking position. Additionally to a pick split you have
got the possibility to assign this picking position to one of several
MIDI controllers. Set the value for example to 1 and you can
simulate the modulation wheel of a keyboard by the picking
position. There are MIDI controllers which are worth while. For that
purpose, look at the user manual of your MIDI instrument.
Interesting controllers are for example 1 (mod wheel), 7 (volume) or
10 (panorama).
If you do not want to use the pick control function, set this
parameter to OFF.
BRIDGE VAL
NECK VAL
Bridge value/Neck value : Setting 0..127
You assign the value range of the MIDI controller with the
parameter bridge value and the parameter neck value. At both
parameters the lowest value is 0 and the highest value is 127. It is
also possible to set values between 0 and 127. To give an example:
Choose one of the MIDI controllers which are listed at the GENERAL MIDI controller chart on page 37, for example number 7 (=
volume). Then determine the bridge value of this MIDI controller
for example to 15 (or minimally to 0) and the neck value of this
MIDI controller to 80 (or maximally to 127). Now start playing at
the bridge and move continously to the base of the neck and you
will see that the tones become louder and louder.
Vice versa it is possible to assign the bridge value of the MIDI
controller number 7 (volume) for example to 80 (or maximally to
127) and the neck value of this MIDI controller for example to 15
(or minimally to 0). Now start playing at the bridge and move
continously to the base of the neck and you will see that the tones
become lower and lower.
Conclusively, the intensity of the MIDI controller depends on the
picking position.
Hold Parameter
While pressing the Hold pedal the Hold parameters will be
important if you set the GLOBAL parameter HOLD MODE to
SEPARATE. In this case your AXON offers you another possibility
to control your MIDI instrument.
Change the Hold parameter by switching your AXON in edit mode
(Press the +/- PARAMETER buttons at the same time until the LED
next to the expression EDIT lights.) Then press the SELECT button
several times until the LED next to the expression HOLD lights.
The first parameter LED blinks and the display shows the value of
the first parameter (PROGRAM). You change it with the +/VALUE keys or call up another parameter with the +/- PARAMETER buttons which can also be changed by the +/- VALUE keys.
The same control possibilities are available. See the section split
parameter.
In Hold mode the hold data are sent on an additional MIDI channel.
Since the meanings of the Hold parameters are identical to the
meanings of the SPLIT parameters, you can find a precise
description of each parameter in the section split parameter. You can
leave this function while pressing the SELECT button again in order
to edit perhaps again the split parameters. You can leave the edit
mode (EDIT) by pressing the +/- PARAMETER keys at the same
time. Naturally you can use the MODE and SELECT key here in
order to save your settings and to leave the edit mode. Please act in
the same way as in the section "How to store presets".
Data exchange through MIDI System Exclusive
Please read in the description of the GLOBAL parameters: SYSEX
SE or SYSEX RCV.
MIDI channel / string assignment
In addition to 6-string-guitars, you can also connect 4, 5 and 6-string-basses to your AXON (requiring a
correspondent HEX pickup). The string assignment is:

How to reload factory presets
You can always reload the original factory presets, but your current
settings are lost. Please store your preset data with MIDI System
Exclusive before. While turning on the AXON, keep pressing the +
VALUE button and the display shows: "Inl".
Description
of the factory presets
In the following the factory presets are listed with its parameters in
a table. The sound description refers to GENERAL MIDI sounds.
Please ensure that your MIDI instrument produces similar sounds to
the given examples. The global parameters are identical for all
presets.
