MIDI/GPI About GPI
In the order of the MODE field
PARAMETER3 field, specify the type of parameter you want to assign.
To select an item, use the [TOUCH AND TURN] knob. Press the OK button to confirm the
change and close the MIDI CONTROL CHANGE popup window.
• You can also press the desired parameter in the field to select it.
• You can press a field to highlight the item you want to select, and then turn one of the screen
encoders to select a parameter.
Assign parameters to other control numbers in the same way.
When you operate a specified parameter on the RIVAGE PM10 system with these settings, the
corresponding Control Change message will be transmitted to external devices. Similarly, if
the corresponding Control Change messages are received from an external device on the
appropriate channel, the parameters assigned to those control numbers will change.
• You can use the CLEAR ALL button to erase all assignments to control numbers.
• Assignments to control numbers are maintained as settings for the entire system, rather than
for individual scenes.
The GPI connector located on the rear panel of the control surface (CS-R10) can be used as a GPI
(General Purpose Interface) input/output connector. This connector provides eight GPI IN ports
and eight GPI OUT ports. For example you can use an external switch to control internal parameters
of the RIVAGE PM10 system or to switch scenes. Conversely, operations or scene changes
performed on the RIVAGE PM10 system can send control signals to an external device.
For details on how to send control signals to an external device when you switch scenes, refer to
"Outputting a control signal to an external device in tandem with scene recall (GPI
The following diagram is an example of an external circuit that can operate GPI via the GPI
connector. (For details on the specifications of the GPI connector pins, refer to the data list.)
[OUT]-1–7 ports are open-drain outputs, and are switched to open or ground. Applicable voltage is
up to +12V for the [OUT]-1–7 ports, and acceptable current is up to 75 mA per port. [OUT]-8 port
supports up to +30V voltage input.
• Only [IN]-8 port features photo coupler input of up to +24V.
• Only [OUT]-8 port features relay output of 24V (DC) (rated) and 1A.
