RE: [KL] Re: Newbie PC2 question (sequencing)
- Fantastic - thanks! This answers loads of queries.
One extra question - "The only thing you can't select with regular controller messages are the actual
effects parameters themselves" but can you select the effects for each channel through controller messages?
Sorry - two extra questions(!) - using the sequencer from my Korg Triton which sends bank select as MSB/LSB, I find that these are only responded to if the PC2 is set to listen to "32" only. Am I missing something here?

using MIDI Receive Mode. Therefore, you can easily accomplish what you want
simply by putting bank and program change, volume (controller #7), pan
(controller #10), and effects control messages into each track. That way, you
merely need to call up the sequence and hit play and every channel will be
This is a logical and smart way of working since you should be thinking of the
sequencer as being in complete control of everything.
As to having effects control for each track, controller #93 controls the wet/dry
for FX-B, #91 controls the wet/dry for FX-A, and #92 controls the wet dry for
the Global FX-A into FX-B. Controller #94 is used to control the FX routing: a
value of 0-31 selects none, 32-63 selects FX-A, 84-95 selects FX-B, and 96-127
The only thing you can't select with regular controller messages are the actual
effects parameters themselves. But you CAN do a sysex dump of the effects
parameters and record that into the beginning of the sequence. You can't get to
the dump from the MIDI Receive Mode, but you can by going into the Effects
Editor from the Internal Voices Mode. So you would start from the program that
is assigned to the Channel you are using for Effects Control and dump the
effects for that program.

(consisting of the selection of the FX-A, and FX-B, along with their editable
parameters) active at any one time. In other words, you have only two effects
processors and can therefore only have 2 effects at a time. So there is no
selecting of effects on a per channel basis. You can only control the routing
(None, A, B, or Both) plus wet/dry mix on a per channel basis.

Kurzweil only needs to receive the LSB (controller #32), but if the MSB is sent,
then it needs to have a value of 0. If yo can't figure out how to get the Korg
to send the values that you want, you can set the PC2 to "32 Only" so that it
simply ignores Controller #0.
