POWER REQUIREMENTS This unit accepts power from the 9VAC/2A adaptor supplied with the unit. This 9 volt RMS AC voltage is internally processed by a voltage doubler which generates a bipolar 15 volts to maintain the headroom and sound quality of professional, studio quality equipment. Using an external power source such as this minimizes excessive noise and hum problems often associated with internal transformers, providing optimal performance for the user.
OPERATING TEMPERATURE Do not expose this unit to excessive heat. This unit is designed to operate between 32 F and 104 F (0 C and 40 C). This unit may not function properly under extreme temperatures.

2. Quick Reference

Selecting a Preset
STEP 1 STEP 2 Turn the PRESET control to the desired preset. Press the RECALL button to call up the selected preset. STEP 7
Storing Changed Parameters
Press the STORE button to start the storing procedure. If you wish to save the altered preset in the current preset location, press the STORE button a second time. If you wish to store the altered preset in a different preset location, turn the PRESET control to the desired preset number, then press STORE a second time. STEP 9 When storing into a different preset location, the Chameleon will display "COPY TITLE TOO?". If you wish to copy the title from the previous preset, press STORE a third time. If you do not wish to copy the title, turn any knob to exit the storing procedure.

STEP 8

Changing Preset Parameters
STEP 3 Turn the FUNCTION SELECT control to the desired effect or utility function. Turn the PARAMETER SELECT control to the parameter you wish to alter under the selected effect or utility function. Use the PARAMETER ADJUST control to select the new parameter value. The COMPARE button may be used to compare the sound of the altered value to the stored value.

POWER switch RECALL button This button is used to recall the displayed preset. PRESET control This control scrolls through the successive presets. CONFIG button/led The status of this button determines whether the Chameleon will display either the preset number and title or the configuration of the currently displayed preset. The configuration display indicates the effects that the displayed preset executes and, in most cases, the order in which they are executed. The LED above the CONFIG button is lit when the configuration is displayed.
DISPLAY panel The DISPLAY panel provides 16 characters consisting of 14 segments each. EFFECT BYPASS button/led When lit, the Pre and Post effects are bypassed and only the Compressor/Preamp signal is passed to the Chameleon outputs This button does not affect the condition of the Speaker Simulator. COMPARE button The COMPARE button may be used to compare an altered parameter value to its stored value. This button may also be used to compare between the altered and stored values of multiple parameters under the same function heading (i.e. "Reverb", "Mixer", etc.). Note: If comparing an altered value to the stored value and the stored value is currently being viewed, turning a knob or pressing a button that changes the parameter value displayed will cancel the previous altered value. This will also occur if a MIDI Control change is received while viewing the stored value(s).

(R) UNBALANCED OUTPUT jack This 1/4" unbalanced RTS jack provides the right unbalanced output of the Chameleon for use with a guitar amplifier or rack system setup. FOOTSWITCH jack This 1/4" mono jack allows for the connection of a momentary footswitch to control the Tapped Delay feature of the Chameleon. The Tapped Delay feature allows the player to set (or reset) the current delay time by tapping the footswitch. The new delay time will be based on the length of time between two taps. For more information on this feature, refer to the "Tap Delay" section. REMOTE jack This 7-pin DIN connector is provided for the connection of a Rocktron All Access MIDI footswitch, which can be configured to act as a dedicated remote footswitch for the Chameleon. This feature allows the user to access Chameleon functions and parameters via the remote footswitch.
PHANTOM POWER jack This 2.5mm PIN jack offers the ability to power Rocktron MIDI foot controllers from a 7pin MIDI cable which connects from the Rocktron MIDI foot controller to the MIDI IN jack on the rear panel of the Chameleon. This eliminates the need to find an AC outlet near where the footpedal would be placed during a performance, or the need to run an extension cord out to the footswitch. Instead of inserting the AC adaptor into the "POWER" jack of the footswitch as you would normally, plug it into the "PHANTOM POWER" jack on the Chameleon. This will power the Rocktron MIDI foot controller through pins 6 and 7 of the MIDI cable connecting the two units. A 7-pin MIDI cable must be used and is available from your Rocktron dealer. MIDI IN jack This 7-pin DIN connector must be connected to the MIDI OUT jack of the transmitting MIDI device via a standard MIDI cable, or to the MIDI THRU jack of the preceding device (if the Chameleon is within a chain of MIDI devices). Pins 6 and 7 of this connector carry the phantom power to power a Rocktron MIDI foot controller when a 7-pin MIDI cable is used.
10 MIDI THRU/OUT jack This standard 5-pin DIN connector can be connected to the MIDI IN jack of another device via a standard MIDI cable. There are limitations to the number of devices that can be chained (or series connected) in this fashion. Note: Inherently in MIDI there is a limit to the number of devices which can be chained together (connected in series). With more than 3 devices, a slight distortion of the MIDI signal can occur (due to signal degradation) which can cause an error in MIDI signal transmission. Should this problem arise, a MIDI Thru box can be used which connects directly to the MIDI device which transmits MIDI information and has multiple connectors for the multiple devices receiving MIDI. MIDI cables should not exceed 50 feet (15 meters) in length. 11 POWER jack This 4-pin DIN connector accepts power from the 9VAC adaptor supplied with the unit.

6. Operating Format

The Chameleon provides 254 stored sounds called presets. Any of the 254 presets can be called up at any time via the front panel PRESET control (used to select a preset) and RECALL button (used to call up the selected preset), or by a remote MIDI footswitch. The root of each preset's sound is its configuration. The configuration determines both the effects available for a given preset and the order in which those effects are executed. The Chameleon provides 12 fixed configurations to achieve a wide array of preset sounds, any of which may be instantly called up at any time.
Chameleon Configurations:
HIGH-GAIN DISTORTION C HORUS DELAY REVERB HIGH-GAIN DISTORTION FLANGE DELAY REVERB HIGH-GAIN DISTORTION TREMOLO DELAY REVERB HIGH-GAIN DISTORTION PITCH SHIFT DELAY REVERB WAH H IGH-GAIN DISTORTION D ELAY R EVERB PHASE SHIFT HIGH-GAIN DISTORTION D ELAY REVERB LOW-GAIN DISTORTION CHORUS DELAY REVERB LOW-GAIN DISTORTION FLANGE DELAY REVERB LOW-GAIN DISTORTION TREMOLO DELAY REVERB LOW-GAIN DISTORTION PITCH SHIFT D ELAY REVERB WAH LOW-GAIN DISTORTION D ELAY R EVERB PHASE SHIFT LOW-GAIN DISTORTION DELAY REVERB
To see the configuration of each preset, press the CONFIG button on the front panel of the Chameleon - the LED above the CONFIG button will light and the display will show the configuration for the current preset. Turning the PRESET control will then scroll through each successive preset (displaying its configuration instead of its preset number and title). The configuration of each preset can also be changed from within the desired preset. For more information on selecting a configuration, see Selecting a Configuration in the section titled "Operating the Chameleon".
Chameleon Functions and Parameter Descriptions
Each Chameleon preset is divided up into individual blocks called functions (such as "Mixer", "Reverb", etc.). Within each function of each configuration is a set of controls which allow you to manipulate various aspects of that function. These controls are called parameters. It is the setting of each of the parameters which determines the overall sound of each preset. The Chameleon is set up to allow you to first access each function (via the FUNCTION SELECT control), then the parameter list for each function (via the PARAMETER SELECT control) and finally the adjustable value for each parameter (via the PARAMETER ADJUST control).

STEP 3: Turn to alter the value of the selected parameter.
STEP 2: Turn to select a parameter within the function.
STEP 1: Turn to select a function.
The functions available for each preset are dependent upon which configuration is currently recalled. The remainder of this section will describe each of the effect-based functions and the associated adjustable parameters they provide. The remaining functions are utility-based, and are described in the section titled "Operating the Chameleon".

GLOBAL Function

The first function displayed after turning the FUNCTION SELECT control is the Global function. The parameters provided in this function affect all presets (i.e. the settings stored for these parameters are the same for all presets).
The PARAMETER SELECT control will allow you to access these Global parameters: OUTPUT
The OUTPUT parameter determines whether the output of the Chameleon is a stereo (left and right) signal or two mono signals. This SPEAKER SIMULATOR parameter under the Global function allows you to globally (all presets) lock the Speaker Simulator off (LOCKOFF) so that it will always be off for all presets - regardless of the status of the "SPKR SIM" parameter under the Speaker Simulator function. It may also be locked on for the left channel (LOCK L) or on for both channels (LOCK B). Note: The Chameleon will only recognize the "SPKR SIM" parameter under the Speaker Simulator function when this parameter is stored as UNLOCK.

SPKR SIM

HUSH OFFSET
The HUSH OFFSET parameter allows you to globally (all presets) adjust the HUSH Expander Threshold. This means that if this parameter is altered from 0dB to +3dB, the Expander Threshold will be 3dB higher for all presets. This feature can be useful when switching from a quiet guitar with passive electronics to a noisy guitar with active electronics - as the active guitar would require a higher Threshold level in all presets. The MUTE parameter allows you to mute the output of the Chameleon. This feature is especially useful when changing guitars during a live set. If a Rocktron All Access is used in remote mode with the Chameleon, a single All Access button can be configured as a momentary switch which will mute the output when it is held down. (See "Using a Chameleon with a Rocktron All Access in REMOTE mode".)

HUSH THRESH

PRE EQ (EXPERT) Function
The PRE EQ (EXPERT) function is available in all presetsregardless of which configuration is currently recalled. This function allows you to shape the tone prior to the distortion stage. Considerable tone variations can be achieved by modifying these pre-distort EQ parameters.
The PARAMETER SELECT control will allow you to access these PRE EQ parameters: LF LEVEL
The pre-LF (low frequency) LEVEL parameter allows you to cut or boost the low frequencies from -15dB to +6dB prior to the distortion stage. This EQ section is a shelving-type. The pre-LF (low frequency) FREQUENCY parameter allows you to select a frequency band with an upper frequency between 63Hz and 500Hz to be cut or boosted by the preLF LEVEL parameter. The pre-MID LEVEL parameter allows you to cut or boost the mid-band frequencies from -15dB to +12dB prior to the distortion stage. The pre-MID FREQUENCY parameter allows you to select a mid-band center frequency between 500Hz and 4KHz to be cut or boosted via the pre-MID LEVEL parameter. The pre-MID BANDWIDTH parameter determines how wide or narrow the bandwidth of the selected mid-band frequency is (in octaves). A small bandwidth only boosts or cuts frequencies close to the center frequency, while a large bandwidth affects the level of frequencies up to two octaves from the center frequency.

POST EQ (EXPERT) Function
The POST EQ (EXPERT) function is available in all presets - regardless of which configuration is currently recalled. This function allows you shape the tone after it has passed through the distortion stage. These post-distortion EQ parameters have a more dramatic effect on the overall tone than the pre-distortion parameters.
The PARAMETER SELECT control will allow you to access these POST EQ parameters: BASS LVL
The post-BASS LEVEL parameter allows you to cut or boost the low frequencies by 15dB after the distortion stage. The post-BASS FREQUENCY parameter allows you to select a center frequency between 63Hz and 500Hz to be cut or boosted by the post-BASS LEVEL parameter. The post-BASS BANDWIDTH parameter determines (in octaves) the width of the selected bass band. The post-MID LEVEL parameter allows you to cut or boost the mid-band frequencies by 15dB after the distortion stage. The post-MID FREQUENCY parameter allows you to select a mid-band center frequency between 250Hz and 2kHz to be cut or boosted via the post-MID LEVEL parameter. The post-MID BANDWIDTH parameter determines (in octaves) the width of the selected mid-band. The post-TREBLE LEVEL parameter allows you to cut or boost the high-band frequencies by 15dB after the distortion stage. The post-TREBLE FREQUENCY parameter allows you to select a high-band center frequency between 1kHz and 8kHz to be cut or boosted via the post-TREBLE LEVEL parameter. The post-TREBLE BANDWIDTH parameter determines (in octaves) the width of the selected high band. The post-PRESENCE LEVEL parameter allows you to cut or boost another high-band frequency by 15dB after the distortion stage. The post-PRESENCE FREQUENCY parameter allows you to select a high-band center frequency between 2kHz and 8kHz to be cut or boosted via the post-PRESENCE LEVEL parameter. The post-PRESENCE BANDWIDTH parameter determines (in octaves) the width of the selected high band.

NOTE: There are 5 steps of the parameter adjust control between each of the intervals shown above (each step equals 20 cents). This allows for smooth pitch change when an expression controller (such as a volume pedal used with a Rocktron All Access or MIDI Mate foot controller) is assigned to the PITCH parameter to change the pitch by remote means.

CHORUS Function

The CHORUS function is available only in configurations displaying "CRS" in the configuration title. The Chorus effect in the Chameleon is produced by using two delayed signals (Voice 1 and Voice 2), detuning these delayed signals (slightly changing their pitch), then modulating the detune effect so that the amount of pitch detune is constantly varying. Using different detune amounts, modulation rates, modulation depths and pan settings for each delayed signal will produce a greater perceived spaciousness.
The PARAMETER SELECT control will allow you to access these CHORUS parameters:

CHORUS I/O

The CHORUS I/O parameter determines whether the Chorus is active or bypassed for the current preset. The LEVEL 1 parameter determines the volume of Voice 1 in relation to Voice 2. The DIR/EFF MIX parameter in the Mixer function also determines the Chorus level. The PAN 1 parameter allows you to pan Voice 1 to the left or right channel. The DEPTH 1 parameter adjusts the amount of modulation of the Voice 1 signal. A lower depth setting will produce a more subtle detune effect, while a higher setting will produce a more extreme detuning of Voice 1. The RATE 1 parameter determines the sweep speed (or the speed at which Voice 1 is modulated). Lower parameter settings will result in slower speeds, while higher settings will result in faster speeds. The DELAY 1 parameter allows you to select the minimum delay time (in milliseconds) for Voice 1. This delayed signal (along with Voice 2) is detuned and modulated to produce the chorus effect. Using shorter delay times will result in a tighter sounding chorused signal, while longer delay times will produce a larger ambient effect. The LEVEL 2 parameter determines the volume of Voice 2 in relation to Voice 1. The PAN 2 parameter allows you to pan Voice 2 to the left or right channel. The DEPTH 2 parameter adjusts the amount of modulation of the Voice 2 signal. A lower depth setting will produce a more subtle detune effect, while a higher setting will produce a more extreme detuning of Voice 2. The RATE 2 parameter determines the sweep speed (or the speed at which Voice 2 is modulated). Lower parameter settings will result in slower speeds, while higher settings will result in faster speeds. The DELAY 2 parameter allows you to select the minimum delay time (in milliseconds) for Voice 2. It is this delayed signal (along with Voice1) that is detuned and modulated to produce the chorus effect Using shorter delay times will result in a tighter sounding chorused signal, while longer delay times will produce a larger ambient effect.

The COMPARE button may now be pressed to compare the sound of the stored parameter value to the sound of the altered parameter value.
Storing changed preset parameters:
While viewing a function or parameter title, press the STORE button to start the store procedure. The display will now alternate between the destination preset number and title and "STORE AT PRESET".

STORE AT PRESET

Turn the PRESET control to select the desired preset number to store the new parameter values into. (If you wish to store the new parameter values into the current preset number, this step is not necessary.) The display will now alternate between the new preset number and "STORE AT PRESET".

57 PRESET TITLE

Note: Turning the FUNCTION SELECT control at this time will cancel the store procedure.
Press the STORE button a second time to store the new values into the selected preset number. The display will briefly flash "STORED" before displaying the new preset number and title. (Note: Turning either the FUNCTION SELECT or PARAMETER SELECT controls before completing this step will cancel the store procedure.)

MIDI Program Number

58 TO 58
The number on the right of the display is the preset number to map to (or the preset number that will be recalled when the MIDI program number on the left is received). Turn the PARAMETER adjust CONTROL to select the preset number to map to.

Chameleon Preset Number

* The preset number to map to can also be set to "OFF"thereby not responding to that program change command.
After selecting both the MIDI program number and the preset number, press the STORE button to save the change for each altered mapping. "STORED" will flash briefly on the display.

MIDI Channels

The Chameleon can receive MIDI commands from other MIDI transmitting devices, as well as transmit MIDI program changes to other MlDI-based equipment when a preset is recalled on the Chameleon via the front panel RECALL button. The MIDI Channels function allows you to select the MIDI channels that the Chameleon will receive and transmit MIDI information on.
Turn the FUNCTION SELECT control clockwise until the Chameleon displays "MIDI CHANNELS".

MIDI CHANNELS

Turn the PARAMETER SELECT control one step clockwise to display the current MIDI Receive channel.

RECEV CHANL

Turn the PARAMETER ADJUST control to select the desired MIDI channel. You may select channels 1-16, OMNI (all channels) or OFF (will not receive MIDI commands).
Press the STORE button to save the new MIDI Receive channel. "STORED" will flash briefly on the display.
Turn the PARAMETER SELECT control one step further to access the MIDI Transmit Channel status.

TRANS CHANL

Turn the PARAMETER ADJUST control to select the channel that the Chameleon will transmit a MIDI program change on. you may select channels 1-16 or OFF (will not transmit a MIDI program change).
Press the STORE button to save the new MIDI Transmit channel. "STORED" will flash briefly on the display.

MIDI Dump/Load

Any or all of the Chameleon presets may be dumped to a sequencer or another Chameleon via system exclusive messages. The information exchanged when performing a MIDI Dump consists of parameter values, title characters and controller assignment/limit information. When dumping a single preset into another Chameleon, the dumped preset may be loaded into any preset location on the receiving Chameleon.
To dump a single Chameleon preset into another Chameleon:
Connect a standard MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the transmitting Chameleon to the MIDI IN on the receiving Chameleon.

XXX DUMPED

After the Chameleon displays "TRANS COMPLETE", stop the sequencer. The sequencer should have recorded all of the data that was dumped from the Chameleon. Keep this data stored on a disk in a
safe place. Turn the PARAMETER SELECT control to continue.
To reload user data from a sequencer:
Connect a standard MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the transmitting sequencer to the MIDI
IN on the receiving Chameleon.
IMPORTANT: Do not allow a looping connection from the MIDI OUT/THRU of the receiving Chameleon back to the MIDI IN of the transmitting sequencer.
Turn the FUNCTION SELECT controls on both the receiving Chameleon until "MIDI DUMP/
LOAD" is displayed. Turn the PARAMETER SELECT controls on the receiving Chameleon until "BULK DUMP/
LOAD" is displayed. Play back the data stored on the sequencer. The Chameleon will display the data strings as it is storing them. Each data string will appear with the word "LOADED". After all the user data has been loaded, the Chameleon will display "LOAD COMPLETE". Do not play back the data from the sequencer faster than it was loaded, as errors may occur (errors may also occur if any knob is turned or any button is pressed before the message "LOAD COMPLETE" appears).

LOAD COMPLETE

Notes: If errors occur during transmission, the unit will display "RECEIVE ERROR " for transmission errors and "XMEM ERROR" for internal hardware errors. Errors occurring in transmission does not indicate that all of the received data is corrupted. Only the transmission string where the error occurred is corrupted. When receiving a Bulk Load, it is important that the data loaded to the Chameleon is not transmitted faster than it was originally dumped from the Chameleon. If information is sent too fast to the Chameleon, an error will occur. When dumping information from a data storage device, such as an Alesis Data Disk, it is necessary to perform the dump in sequence mode rather than sysx mode. Sequence mode will dump the information back to the Chameleon at the same rate as it was received from the Chameleon. The Chameleon can receive a data dump at about 65Hz (or about 1 byte every 15 milliseconds).

Factory Restore

The Factory Restore function allows you to restore altered Chameleon presets to their original condition as shipped from the factory. Either the entire Chameleon memory can be restored, a single preset can be restored to any preset location, or the controller information alone can be restored. Restoring a single factory preset:
Turn the FUNCTION SELECT control clockwise to "FACTORY RESTORE".

The SETUP program allows the user to configure the general operation of the All Access footswitch. Use the SETUP program to determine each of the following: The operating mode; The number of presets within each bank; How presets are recalled when changing from bank to bank; Assigning MIDI control values as sent globally or per preset; Assigning names for MIDI channels; The starting preset number for each MIDI channel; MIDI filtering options; Preset reinitialization; Memory reinitialization; Selecting a remote title number for use with other Rocktron products Upon accessing SETUP, the first page of the SETUP program,Operating Mode, will automatically be displayed.
SETUP, Page 1 of 10 - Operating Mode
The first page of the SETUP program determines the current operating mode of the All Access. The All Access can be used in any of three different operating modes - BANK, SONG or REMOTE. When BANK mode is selected, presets are selected by first "banking up" or "banking down" via the "UP" and "DOWN" switches on the All Access. This selects the Bank, or the first two digits of the preset number (0-12). Depending upon the setting of the BANK STYLE parameter (see SETUP, Page 2), the All Access will recall the next preset based on the selected bank and either (a) the preset switch last selected from the previous bank, (b) the first preset in the newly selected bank, or (c) will not recall a preset until an additional preset switch is pressed to select the preset number. In SONG mode, the All Access allows for presets to be assigned to the preset switches to create a SONG. Songs can then be arranged in a bank order to create aSET. In REMOTE mode, the All Access acts as a remote control which can be configured to control future remote compatible Rocktron products.

Accessing SETUP:

() () To access the SETUP program, press the "2ND" button to activate the secondary button functions. Press the "SETUP" button. The L.E.D. above the "SETUP" button will flash and the All Access will display the first page of the SETUP program. Pressing the "" button while in the 2ND mode accesses each successive editing page.

SETUP, Page 10 of 10 - Remote Title Number
Remote mode notes: When operating the All Access in remote mode with a Rocktron rack unit, changes made from the rack unit itself will be reflected on the footswitch. For example, if button 6 on the All Access is configured to control the Delay In/Out parameter on the rack unit, switching out the delay from the rack unit instead of the All Access will cause the L.E.D. for button 6 on the footswitch to turn off. In addition, when a preset is changed from the rack unit, the rack sends the status of its mapped parameters to the All Access, causing the corresponding L.E.D.s to turn on or off to reflect the proper status. In Remote mode, control changes are not sent when an All Access preset switch is pressed, as the status of the instant access switches will be determined by the rack unit.
The tenth page of the SETUP program isRemote Title Number. By matching the remote title number with that of another Rocktron product, the titles from the other Rocktron unit will be transmitted to the All Access and displayed when operating in REMOTE mode.

MIDI, Page 2 of 7 - Control Number Assignment
The second page of the MIDI program, Control Number Assignment, allows for control numbers and MIDI channels to be assigned to instant access switches and pedals. This feature allows for a pedal or instant access switch to control a specific parameter of another MIDI device. For example, if the Gain parameter of a Rocktron Chameleon preamp was mapped to controller number 8, assigning the P1 (Pedal 1) parameter of the All Access to controller 8 on the same MIDI channel would allow for an expression pedal connected to the PEDAL 1 jack on the All Access to continuously control the gain level of the Chameleon. In addition, multiple parameters assigned to the same controller will allow you to control all of the assigned parameters simultaneously. It is important that the control numbers and MIDI channels match between the parameters to be controlled on the outboard MIDI device and the pedal or instant access switch on the All Access. Similarly, assigning a control number to an instant access switch will also allow you to control a specific parameter of another MIDI device. Once a parameter (or multiple parameters) of another MIDI device is mapped to the same controller number assigned to an All Access instant access switch, each time the instant access switch is pressed, an "on" or "off" controller value will be sent from the All Access and toggle between two parameter values. The parameter values that are toggled between are determined by the control value sent each time the instant access switch is pressed (see MIDI, Page 3 - Control Number Assignment). If specific control values are not assigned by the user, pressing the instant access switch will toggle between the highest and lowest values for that parameter.
Note: When operating in BANK or SONG mode, the status of each instant access switch is stored in the All Access.
To assign control numbers to switches/pedals:
() With the 2ND L.E.D. still lit, press the "" switch to access the second page of the MIDI program, Control Number Assignment. (If the All Access is not already in the MIDI editing mode, press "2ND", then "MIDI" followed by "" once.) Use the "INC" and "DEC" switches directly below the displayed instant access switch to select the switch or pedal to which control numbers and channels will be assigned. (Only those switches which are configured as instant access switches will be accessible.) Use the "INC" and "DEC" switches directly below the displayed MIDI channel to select the MIDI channel to be assigned to the selected switch or pedal. Use the "INC" and "DEC" switches directly below the currently displayed control number to select the control number to be assigned to the selected switch/pedal.

Repeat steps through for each of the instant access switches/pedals.
Assigning Control Numbers to Pedals and Instant Access Switches
Switch/Pedal MIDI Number Channel select select SW1-15, CH1-16 P1, P2 (or by name) (or by name)
Control Number select 0-120, OFF
When the desired control numbers have been assigned: (a) press the "2ND" button again (turning the "2ND" L.E.D. off) to exit the editing mode; or (b) press the "" button to access additional MIDI editing pages; or (c) press another mode button to edit All Access features other than MIDI.
MIDI, Page 3 of 7 - Control Value Assignment
The third page of the MIDI program, Control Value Assignment, allows for "on" and "off" controller values to be assigned to instant access switches and pedals. Control changes can be sent went an instant access switch is pressed or a controller pedal is moved to aid in selecting a desired control value When controlling specific parameters of other MIDI devices, the "on" and "off" control values assigned to an instant access switch determine the high and low parameter values that will be toggled between on the MIDI receiving device. When assigning control values to a pedal, the "on" and "off" values assigned determine the range over which the pedal will provide continuous control. Typically, the "on" value is the higher value and determines the control value sent when the pedal is set at the toe position. The "off" value is generally the lower value and determines the control value sent when the pedal is set at the heel position. However, these values can also be reversed so that the toe position of the pedal provides the lower value and the heel position provides the higher value.
Note: When the pedals P1 and P2 are displayed, the Control Value Assignment page sets the maximum and minimum values for the movement of the pedal. Also: If Pedal 1 is moved while displaying the PED1 on/off values, the display will show the control values as they are sent.

To assign the type of each instant access switch:
() With the 2ND L.E.D. still lit, press the "" switch to access the next page of the MIDI program, Switch Type. (If the All Access is not already in the MIDI editing mode, press "2ND", then "MIDI", followed by "" three times.) Use the "INC" and "DEC" switches directly below the displayed instant access switch to select the switch to be assigned a switch type. Use the "INC" and "DEC" switches directly below the displayed switch type to select a type for the selected switch. Repeat steps and for each of the instant access switches/pedals
Selecting Switch Types for Instant Access Switches
Switch Number select SW1-15
Switch Type select LATCHING, MOMENTARY or HOLD

LATCHING

When the desired switch types have been assigned: (a) press the "2ND" button again (turning the "2ND" L.E.D. off) to exit the editing mode; or (b) press the "" button to access additional MIDI editing pages; or (c) press another mode button to edit All Access features other than MIDI.
MIDI, Page 5 of 7 - Program Change Status
The fifth page of the MIDI program, Program Change Status, determines whether or not the All Access will respond to incoming program changes, as well as whether to map the incoming program changes to a preset. If the All Access is set to respond to incoming program changes, it will send out information associated with each preset just as if the buttons on the All Access were pressed. (This feature is operable only when the All Access is operating in BANK mode - see SETUP, Page 1). When set to OFF, the All Access will not respond to incoming program changes. When set to ON, he All Access responds to incoming program changes without mapping.
