INTRODUCTION

Alesis MIDIVERB III

16 BIT MULTI-EFFECTS PROCESSOR WITH REAL-TIME MIDI PARAMETER CONTROL
The Alesis MIDIVERB III is a high quality multi-effects unit which features up to 4 simultaneous effects (Delay, Reverb, Chorus, EQ) at a full 15KHz bandwidth and with 16 bit resolution. Since all features of MIDIVERB III are accessible from the front panel, the operator can set up a wide range of complex effects without a complex user interface. The MIDIVERB III features 200 on-board memory locations, of which the first 100 (000 to 099) are factory pre-programmed with a variety of programs. Memory locations 100 to 199 contain the same programs as the first 100 so that the user can modify or erase these locations without loosing any of the factory programs. All of the second 100 programs can be edited and stored by the user as desired. The original 100 factory programs (000 to 099) cannot be altered permanently. The rear panel consists of five 1/4" jacks (left and right inputs and outputs, bypass), MIDI input and output jacks, and a power supply connector. The unit can also be rack mounted in a single 19" rack space.

HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL

Since a musician's time is better spent making music than reading manuals, we've tried to make this manual not only easy to use, but also fast and easy to find things when you need to. Therefore, the manual is broken down to 6 major sections, of which Section 4 will be probably be referred to the most. They are: SECTION 1 - QUICKSTART This section tells you how to use the most frequently needed operations. If you have to use your MIDIVERB III now but don't have the time to read the entire manual, Section 1 will quickly guide you through. SECTION 2 - DESCRIPTION OF CONTROLS This section gives a brief explanation of all front panel and rear panel controls and indicators. SECTION 3 - INTERFACING MIDIVERB III Section 3 deals with the interfacing of MIDIVERB III to another MIDI device or into a MIDI system. SECTION 4 - USING MIDIVERB III Section 4 gives an overview of the software functions and pages of MIDIVERB III. This section will probably be the most used part of the manual as it describes how to execute every function in a step by step manner. Actual display readouts of MIDIVERB III are also included. SECTION 5 - SPECIFICATIONS Section 5 provides the operational specifications for MIDIVERB III.

QUICK START

MIDIVERB III QUICK START

FACTORY PROGRAMS

The MIDIVERB III contains 200 factory supplied programs, 100 of which are stored in memory locations 000 to 099 and repeated again in locations 100 to 199. Only the programs in locations 100 to 199 can be permanently altered and stored as desired by the user.

SELECTING PROGRAMS

1) Press the PROGRAM button. button will light. The LED in the middle of the
2) Press either VALUE button until the desired program is displayed. or 2A) Select a 3 digit program number from the numbered function buttons on the right within 4 seconds.

PLEASE NOTE:

If only one or two digits are selected within 4 seconds, the display will
revert back to the previous program number.
the MIDIVERB III is first powered up, the unit will be in the PROGRAM mode and will display the last program that was selected before being turned off.

EDITING PROGRAMS

1) Select the EDIT button. The lower of the two LEDs adjacent to the EDIT button will light and the PROGRAM LED will turn off. This indicates that the bottom row of functions of the top row of buttons can be accessed.
2) Pressing the EDIT button again will select the upper LED which indicates that the top row of edit functions on the top row of buttons can be accessed. 3) Select the desired function to be edited. The stored value of the parameter will appear in the numeric display and the button will light up. 4) Press either VALUE button to adjust the desired parameter. 5) Select another function to be edited, if desired.
Once a parameter has been edited, the dot to the right of the rightmost numeric digit will light when in PROGRAM mode (program number displayed and PROGRAM LED lit).
At this point, selecting a new program either by the VALUE buttons or
the keypad will cause the edited program to be lost. Be sure to save your program first (See Saving Edited Programs)!
The Edit function has no effect on the bottom row of buttons.
will operate the same regardless which Edit LED is on.
COMPARING AN EDITED TO A STORED PROGRAM
1) To compare an edited program to the previously stored program, exit the Edit mode by pressing the PROGRAM button. The PROGRAM LED will light and the display will show the program number with a dot to the lower right. 2) Press the PROGRAM button a second time to hear the previously stored program. The dot displayed behind the program will flash. 3) Press the PROGRAM button again to listen to the edited program again. The dot displayed behind the program will turn solid again. By repeatedly pressing the PROGRAM button, you can quickly change back between the edited and stored program. 4) Press the EDIT button to return to editing, or store as a new program (see the next function).

SAVING (STORING) EDITED PROGRAMS
1) Once a program has been edited to your liking, press the STORE button. The LED in the middle of the button will flash. 2) The numeric display will show the current program number if it was program 100 through 199, or will display the program number plus 100 if it was 000 to 099, since 000 to 099 cannot be stored to. 3) If another storage location is desired, press either VALUE button until the desired program location is displayed. 4) Press the STORE button a second time to save the program. The STORE LED and the Edit dot in the display will both turn off, and the function that was selected before STORE was pressed will be reselected.

DESCRIPTION OF CONTROLS

DESCRIPTION OF CONTROLS FRONT PANEL
The INPUT control is a stereo control that determines the master volume level of the signal being fed into both inputs of the MIDIVERB III.
The MIX control determines the ratio of direct to effect signal. Full counterclockwise (to the left) applies only direct signal to the outputs of MIDIVERB III. Full clockwise (to the right) applies only effect signal to the outputs.

OUTPUT

The OUTPUT control determines the output level of the MIDIVERB III's stereo output jacks. Although this control is not programmable, it is possible to program some of the output levels internally via software (See Editing the Mix Levels).

CLIP INDICATOR

The red CLIP INDICATOR LED indicates the onset of distortion. This LED should only light occasionally during normal use.

SIGNAL PRESENT LED

The green SIGNAL PRESENT LED indicates that a signal is currently being fed into the MIDIVERB III. This LED should be frequently lit during normal use.

LED DISPLAY

The MIDIVERB III contains an LED display which indicates the current program number or parameter value.
The VALUE buttons can be used to select the desired number or, once a desired parameter has been selected, edit the parameters value.

PROGRAM

The PROGRAM button will display the number of the current program. A period appearing behind the program number indicates that a parameter or function has been edited and is different from its stored value.
The STORE button allows you to store an edited program into any available program location. By pressing the STORE button once, the desired location to be stored to can be accessed by pressing and holding one of the VALUE buttons. Pressing the STORE button a second time will save the program.
Pressing the EDIT button will allow access to various parameters for editing. When the EDIT button is selected, the lower of the two LEDs adjacent to the button will light, and indicates that the lower row of parameters of the top row of buttons can be accessed for editing. Pressing the EDIT button a second time will select the upper row of parameters of the top row of buttons.

REVERB/1

When in the EDIT mode, pressing the REVERB button will access either the REVERB ALGORITHM or REVERB DECAY time for editing, depending which EDIT LED is lit. The ALGORITHM parameter offers selection of any of 20 Reverb Algorithms, each with different reverb characteristics such as frequency response, diffusion, density, etc.(see programming chart). The REVERB DECAY parameter allows the user to adjust the decay of the reverb from very short to very long as required. After pressing the REVERB button, pressing the VALUE buttons will select the desired ALGORITHM choices or DECAY levels. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 1 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.

DELAY/2

When in the EDIT mode, pressing the DELAY button will access either the DELAY TIME or DELAY REGENERATION amount for editing, depending which EDIT LED is lit. The DELAY TIME parameter allows the user to adjust the time between repeats as required. The DELAY REGENERATION parameter adjusts the number of repeats. After pressing the DELAY button, pressing the VALUE buttons will select the desired DELAY TIME or REGENERATION levels. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 2 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.

CHORUS/3

When in the EDIT mode, pressing the CHORUS button will access either the CHORUS ALGORITHM or CHORUS SPEED for editing, depending which EDIT LED is lit. The ALGORITHM parameter offers selection of a wide variety of chorused effects such as mono and stereo chorus, mono and stereo flanging, variations of these with different depths and feedback, etc.(see programming chart). The SPEED parameter affects the sweep speed of the selected effect as required. After pressing the CHORUS button, pressing the VALUE buttons will select the desired ALGORITHM choices or SPEED levels. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 3 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.
When in the EDIT mode, pressing the EQ button will access either the INPUT EQ or EFFECT EQ, depending which EDIT LED is lit. The INPUT EQ is a high-cut filter that determines the frequency response of the incoming signal. The EFFECT EQ is a high-cut filter that is part of the currently selected effect. For example, with effects that have reverb, the EFFECT EQ determines the high frequency decay of the reverb. When used with the Delay, the EFFECT EQ determines the high frequency response of the regeneration (number of repeats). After pressing the EQ button, pressing the VALUE buttons will select the desired EQ rolloff frequency point. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 4 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.

When in the EDIT mode, pressing the MIX button will adjust the relative level of either the Delay or Reverb, depending on which page the Edit LED is set. The Chorus level is always the same and is either On or Off depending upon the Configuration selected. After pressing the MIX button, pressing the VALUE buttons will select the desired levels. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 5 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.

CONFIG/6

When in the EDIT mode, the CONFIG button selects the various signal flow possibilities of MIDIVERB III's four Effects. After pressing the CONFIG button, pressing the VALUE buttons will select the available choices. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 6 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.
When in the EDIT mode, the MOD button lets you control various MIDIVERB III parameters isuch as Reverb Decay Time or Reverb Level in real time from a MIDI controller like the pitchwheel, mod wheel, keyboard aftertouch, keyboard note value, keyboard velocity, sustain pedal, breath controller, or volume control on a synthesizer or other MIDI device. After pressing the MOD button, pressing the VALUE buttons selects the available choices. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 7 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.

MIDI/8

When in the EDIT mode, the MIDI button is used to select the send and receive channel for the MIDIVERB III. The range is channel 01 through 16. Pressing the MIDI button a second time selects if the MIDIVERB III will accept MIDI Program Change commands. Pressing the MIDI button a third time selects the ECHO On or Off function. This will echo any MIDI information that the MIDIVERB III receives at its MIDI input (except for system exclusive messages that are specifically for the MIDIVERB III) back out its MIDI output. The MIDI button can also be used to transmit MIDIVERB III programs 100 through 199 via MIDI system exclusive. Simply hold the MIDI button and press STORE. The MIDI functions are global functions and are not stored with an individual program. When in the PROGRAM mode, this is button 8 of the keypad for selecting a program by directly entering the desired program number.

MIDI MAPPING

The next two buttons control what is known as MIDI program MAPPING, which means that a MIDI program change number can be mapped to select any of the MIDIVERB III's programs. For example, without MIDI program MAPPING, selecting MIDI program 23 from an external MIDI device would select program 23 on the MIDIVERB III. With MIDI MAPPING, selecting MIDI program 23 on an external MIDI device could be set to select any program on the MIDIVERB III. The MIDI MAPPING functions are global functions and are not stored with an individual program.

Program mode.

The display will read the program number, only now it reads "023".

WITH KEYPAD

Another way to select program 23 would be to use the ten function keys on the right of the front panel which double as a keypad in the Program mode (notice the numbers beside each button). To do this we would do the following: 1) Select the three digits (all programs must have 3 digits) from the keypad. In this case 0 (INT. PROG button), 2 (DELAY button), 3 (CHORUS button). The program will be selected after the third digit is entered. 2) The three digits must be selected within 4 seconds or the program will revert back to the previous program number.
After the third digit is entered, the display will read as above.

FROM MIDI

The third and final way to select program 23 is with a program change command received via MIDI. 1) Enable MIDI Program Change by first pressing the EDIT button. 2) Press the MIDI button until the display reads "Pof" or "Pon".
3) Press the "Up" VALUE button until display read "Pon" 4) Set program 023 on the MIDIVERB III to correspond with the desired program number on your synth, sequencer, or other MIDI device. (see " How to Use MIDI Mapping" on page xxxxxxx). 5) Send the program change from your synth, sequencer, or other MIDI device.

EDITING A PROGRAM

Any MIDIVERB III program can be easily edited (modified) by entering the EDIT mode. As an example, we will edit our program 023. 1) Select the EDIT button. The lower of the the two LEDs adjacent to the EDIT button will light, the PROGRAM LED will turn off, and the LED for the function or parameter last selected will light. This indicates that the bottom row of functions of the top row of buttons can be accessed, so now the REVERB, DELAY, CHORUS, EQ, and MIX buttons will control REVERB DECAY, DELAY REGENERATION, CHORUS SPEED, EFFECT EQ, and DELAY MIX. (The illustration indicates a Reverb Decay time of 50).
2) Pressing the EDIT button again will select the upper LED which indicates that the top row of edit functions on the top row of buttons can be accessed. Now the REVERB, DELAY, CHORUS, EQ, and MIX buttons control REVERB ALGORITHM, DELAY TIME, CHORUS ALGORITHM, INPUT EQ, and REVERB MIX. (The illustration indicates that a Reverb Algorithm of "ro1" or Room 1 has been chosen).

REVERB DECAY

The Reverb Decay determines the length of time that the Reverb will sound before it finally fades away. It is not used in the Reverse 1 and 2 Algorithms. It is functional in all others.
The Delay section of the MIDIVERB III can be used in two modes, depending upon the configuration. In some configurations, the Delay acts as a straight mono Digital Delay which can be programmed for up to 490 milliseconds. In other configurations that feature the Reverb of MIDIVERB III , it will be used as a Pre-Delay for the Reverb section with a maximum setting of up to 100 milliseconds. The programmable parameters are:

DELAY TIME

Delay Time is the amount of time between the original signal and the first repeat, or echo, of the signal.

DELAY REGENERATION

Delay Regeneration means that a portion of the delay signal output is "fed back" into the input, resulting in the delay repeating itself. The more regeneration, the more repeats.

CHORUS

The Chorus section of the MIDIVERB III is primarily used to slightly change the pitch of the signal fed into the unit. This is done to make the input signal thicker and bigger sounding. The programmable parameters are:

CHORUS ALGORITHM

There are 24 different Chorus Algorithms (Chorus versions), in the MIDIVERB III. Each algorithm has a different sound and simulates a different pitch based effect. There are two major types of algorithms: Chorus and Flanging (see explanation below). Both Chorus and Flanging have 6 algorithms of mono and 6 algorithms of stereo. See Figure 6.
FIGURE 6 CHORUS ALGORITHM
DISPLAY Mono Stereo C1 SC1 C2 SC2 C3 SC3 C4 SC4 C5 SC5 C6 SC6 Depth Smallest Depth Small Depth Medium Depth Medium Depth Big Depth Biggest Depth

FLANGING ALGORITHM

DISPLAY Mono Stereo F1 SF1 F2 SF2 F3 SF3 F4 SF4 F5 SF5 F6 SF6 Depth Smallest Depth Small Depth Medium Depth Medium Depth Big Depth Biggest Depth

WHAT IS CHORUS?

As the name implies, the Chorus effect is used to make one instrument sound like two or more instruments played together. Just as a string section, with its tiny variations in tuning and timing, sounds thicker than a single violin, so does a guitar or keyboard sound bigger and more interesting when a bit of chorusing is applied. Mono Chorus is achieved by splitting the signal into two, then slightly delaying and detuning one of the parts. In Stereo Chorus, the signal on the left will detune in one direction while the signal on the right detunes in the other direction.

WHAT IS FLANGING?

First used in the sixties, "Flanging" was achieved by the use of two tape recorders that would record and play back the same program in synchronization. By alternately slowing down one tape machine, and then the other, different phase cancellations would occur. Since the slowing down of the tape machines was done by hand pressure against the flanges of the tape supply reels, the term "Flanging" came into being. Today, Flanging can be closely simulated by many outboard effects processors such as the MIDIVERB III. The effect of Flanging, either electronically or mechanically done, is achieved by splitting and slightly delaying one part of the signal, then varying the time delay, with an LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator). The delayed signal is then mixed back with the original signal to produce the "swishing" or "tunneling" sound. Many

variables are available, from varying the Speed and Depth of the LFO to feeding back part of the signal to make the effect stronger. In the case of a Stereo Flange, the signal is split into three parts with a dry signal and a separate Delay section for both left and right channels with one channel flanging up while the other channel flanges down. This causes the effect to become more pronounced and dramatic.

CHORUS SPEED

Varying the Chorus Speed parameter affects the amount of signal detuning, and therefore the depth of chorusing while in the Chorus mode. When in the Flanging mode, Chorus Speed will affect the speed of the flange.
The EQ section of the MIDIVERB III is actually a single pole, 6dB per octave low pass filter, designed to roll off the high frequency response of either the input or effect in order to simulate the high frequency rolloff that occurs naturally in different environments. The number that is displayed is the frequency point where the signal has already rolled off 3dB. See Figure 7. When in the EDIT mode, pressing the EQ button will access either the INPUT EQ or EFFECT EQ, depending which EDIT LED is lit.

The programmable parameters are:

INPUT EQ

The INPUT EQ is a high-cut filter that rolls off the high frequency response of the input signal before it is sent to either the Delay, Reverb, or Chorus. The VALUE button selects the frequency where the signal has been rolled off -3dB. See Figure 7.

EFFECT EQ

The EFFECT EQ is a high-cut filter that is part of the currently selected effect. The VALUE button selects the frequency where the signal has been rolled off -3dB. See Figure 7. With effects that have reverb (Configurations 1 through 13), the EFFECT EQ determines the high frequency decay of the reverb. With effects that have Delay (Configurations 14 and 15), the EFFECT EQ determines the frequency response of the Delay Regeneration (or the number of repeats).

MIX PARAMETERS

When in the EDIT mode, pressing the MIX button will adjust the relative level of either the Delay or Reverb, depending on which page the Edit LED is set. The programmable Mix Parameters are especially useful in live situations where the level of Delay and Reverb must be different from program to program. The Chorus level is always the same and is either On or Off depending upon the Configuration selected. The Mix parameters are:

DELAY OUTPUT LEVEL

The Delay Output Level adjusts the output level of the Delay section.

REVERB OUTPUT LEVEL

The Reverb Output Level adjusts the output level of the Reverb section.

No Reverb available on Configurations 14 and 15. Configurations 5, 6, or 13 can provide Chorus only (with no other effects) if desired. Only Configurations 1, 7, and 13 provide Reverb Pre-Delay. Configurations 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 13, and 14 provide Chorus at Output. Configurations 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15 have Chorus on effects only.

USING MIDIVERB III WITH MIDI MIDI PARAMETERS
The MIDI button accesses the various MIDI parameters of MIDIVERB III. The MIDI functions are global functions and are not stored with an individual program.

MIDI CHANNEL

The MIDIVERB III can receive MIDI information on channels 1 through 16. When in the EDIT mode, the MIDI button is used to select the send and receive channel for the MIDIVERB III. The range is 01 through 16. The MIDI functions are global functions and are not stored with an individual program.

TO CHANGE MIDI CHANNELS

1) When in the EDIT mode (either EDIT LED lit), press the MIDI button once. The numeric display will show "c01" for MIDI channel 01.
2) If another MIDI channel is desired, press either VALUE button until the desired channel is displayed.

MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE

Pressing the MIDI button a second time accesses the MIDI Program Change page which allows the MIDIVERB III to change programs remotely by a MIDI Program Change command. The MIDIVERB III will also send Program Change commands when programs are selected from the front panel. When used in conjunction with the VERB PROGRAM button, the MIDIVERB III transposes the program numbers of a MIDI controller (a synthesizer, for instance) to match those of the MIDIVERB III.
SELECTING MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE
1) When in the EDIT mode ( either EDIT LED lit), press the MIDI button TWO times. The numeric display will read "Pon" if MIDI Program Change is on, and "Pof" if MIDI Program Change is off.

2) Press the VALUE "Up" button to toggle MIDI Program Change "On"; Press the VALUE "Down"button to toggle MIDI Program Change "Off".

MIDI ECHO

Pressing the MIDI button a third time accesses the MIDI Echo page which allows any MIDI information received by the MIDIVERB III (with the
exception of System Exclusive data) to be retransmitted back out the MIDI OUT jack.

SELECTING MIDI ECHO

1) While still in the EDIT mode ( either EDIT LED lit), press the MIDI button THREE times. The numeric display will read "Eon" if MIDI Echo is on, and "Eof" if MIDI Echo is off.
2) Press the VALUE "Up" button to toggle MIDI Echo "On"; Press the VALUE "Down"button to toggle MIDI Program Change "Off".

MIDI SEND

Pressing the MIDI button a fourth time accesses the Send MIDI page, which makes it possible to save all MIDIVERB III programs externally to a MIDI storage device (such as an Alesis DATADISK) or swap programs with another MIDIVERB III via MIDI system exclusive. System Exclusive is a distinct software protocol specific to the MIDIVERB III. This makes it possible to do such things as MIDI Data Dumps and retrievals, as well as communication via external computer.
TRANSMITTING PROGRAMS VIA MIDI
1) While in the EDIT mode ( either EDIT LED lit), press the MIDI button FOUR times. The numeric display will read "Snd" to indicate that MIDI Send is enabled.
2) Press the STORE button, which causes MIDIVERB III's entire memory to be sent out via MIDI to an external storage device like an Alesis DATADISK or another MIDIVERB III. The display will read "____" while sending the data, which will take about 1 second, after which it will return to "Snd".
RECEIVING PROGRAMS VIA MIDI
1) At any time, the MIDIVERB III can receive MIDI Program Data (known as a Sysex dump). The display will read "____" while receiving the MIDI data, which will take about 10 seconds due to the time required to store 100 programs.

--MIDI MAPPING

The next two buttons control what is known as MIDI program MAPPING, which means that a single MIDI program number can be programmed to select any of the MIDIVERB III's programs. For example, without MIDI program MAPPING, selecting MIDI program 23 from an external MIDI device would select program 23 on the MIDIVERB III. With MIDI MAPPING, selecting MIDI program 23 on an external MIDI device could select any program on the MIDIVERB III. The MIDI MAPPING functions are global functions and are not stored with an individual program. For example, if the following program changes were desired: MIDI Controller Program 101 = MIDIVERB III Program 33

7) Select the INT. PROGRAM button on the MIDIVERB III once again. 8) Press the VALUE button until the desired internal MIDIVERB III program number is displayed. In this case it would be program 65.
9) Continue steps 1 through 4 as many times as MIDI program MAPPING is necessary.

MISCELLANEOUS FUNCTIONS

INITIALIZING THE MIDIVERB III
There are two reasons why you may want to reinitialize your MIDIVERB III : 1) To return all programs to their factory parameter settings (called "initializing"). 2) In case the unit locks up from a power surge. To initialize your MIDIVERB III, do the following: 1) Turn the MIDIVERB III off. 2) Hold the INT. PROG and STORE buttons. 3) Turn the MIDIVERB III on again while holding the above buttons.

--PLEASE NOTE:

procedure will erase all user stored parameters and return all MIDIVERB III parameters to their default values.
The MIDI program table will return to 000 through 199. Programs
100 through 199 will become duplicates of factory programs 000 through 099.
The display will be blank for about ten seconds while the memory is
initialized. CAUTION: This procedure will erase all user programs from memory!!
DETERMINING THE CURRENT SOFTWARE VERSION
1) Hold the PROGRAM button and press the EDIT button. The display will read X.XX which represents the current version number of the software.

programs to better suit your needs, MIDIVERB III has a very simple and logical routine for performing edits. Please follow these easy instructions. EDIT COMPARE
For convenience, MIDIVERB III has a powerful feature that allows you to compare your edits to the currently stored program before committing them to memory. 1) Exit the Edit mode by pressing the PROGRAM button. The PROGRAM LED will light. The Numeric Display will show the program number you are editing and the Edit Indicator Dot will light. 2) To hear the unedited program, press the PROGRAM button a second time. The Edit Indicator Dot will flash, indicating that you are hearing the unedited program. You may switch back and forth between the edited and unedited versions of the program until you reach a decision; or you can re-enter EDIT mode to further modify your program. When you are satisfied with your edits, follow the directions for SAVING PROGRAMS.

SAVING PROGRAMS

1) Press the STORE button. The STORE button LED will flash. The 3 Digit Numeric Display will indicate the program number you are storing to (see NOTE). 2) Press the STORE button again to save the edited program. 3) After saving, MIDIVERB III will return to EDIT mode (EDIT button LED will light). The 3 Digit Numeric Display will show the newly stored parameter. You may now continue editing or return to PROGRAM mode by pressing the PROGRAM button. NOTE: Program numbers 000-099 are non-erasable factory programs. All edits performed on these programs can only be stored in program locations 100-199. Edits to program numbers 000-999 will automatically appear as the chosen program location plus 100. For example, editing program 29 will appear as storable location 129. However, you may choose numbered storable locations from 100-199 as follows: 1) Press the Up or Down value button to select the desired program location. 2) Press the STORE button to save the program.

EDITING PROGRAMS

1) Press the EDIT button. Press one of the Function Buttons: its LED will light. The currently stored parameter value will be displayed in the 3 Digit Numeric Display. 2) The Reverb, Delay, Chorus, EQ and Mix buttons each have two parameter choices. Press the EDIT button to toggle between the two choices. The Upper or Lower Function LEDs will light to indicate your choice. 3) Press the Up or Down VALUE button to adjust the parameter.
