Setup
Connecting a foot pedal
If you connect a optional EXP-2 foot controller or XVP-
10 expression/volume pedal to the ASSIGNABLE
PEDAL jack, you can use it to apply modulation to
sounds or effects, or to adjust the overall volume.
This pedal will always function in the same way
regardless of the Program, Combination, or Song
you've selected. You can assign the function in the
Global mode.
1. Connect an optional XVP-10 or EXP-2 to the
ASSIGNABLE PEDAL jacks.
2. After turning the power on, use Global P2:
Controllers– Foot Controllers page "Foot Pedal
Assign" to assign the function controlled by the
foot pedal. (See page 84, PG page 228, and
page 385)
Connecting the M50 to
a computer
The M50 provides both MIDI and USB connectors as
standard equipment. By connecting the M50 to your
computer via USB, you can use it as a controller and
MIDI sound module for your DAW software with
single cable convenience; and with out the need for a
MIDI interface.
By using the dedicated editor, you can edit the M50
from your computer as though it were a software plug-
in.
For details, see "M50 Editor/Plug-In Editor owner's
manual" (PDF).

Connecting MIDI devices

By connecting the M50's MIDI connectors to an
external MIDI device you can transfer sound settings
and performance data such as note messages between
your external MIDI device and the M50.
About MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface,
and is a world-wide standard for exchanging various
types of musical data between electronic musical
instruments and computers. When MIDI cables are
used to connect two or more MIDI devices,
performance data can be exchanged between the
devices, even if they were made by different
manufacturers.
Controlling an external MIDI tone
generator from M50
If you want to use the M50's keyboard, chord trigger
switches and other controllers, sequencer, and
arpeggiator to play or control an external MIDI sound
module, use a MIDI cable to connect the M50's MIDI
OUT connector to the MIDI IN connector of your
external MIDI sound module.
