After Touch

While you play the keyboard, pressing the keys harder will control tonal brightness. The X5DR
can receive After Touch message (Channel Pressure).

Control Change

Sending this message allows you to adjust performance conditions, such as the volume level and
pan settings. Each Controller has its own function. The X5DR can receive the following Control
Change messages:
Bank Select (CTRL#0/32)
This changes the Program Bank. Use this message to switch between Banks A and G, and Drum
Modulation (CTRL#1/2)
This adjusts the depth of modulation effects, such as vibrato. The X5DR receives CTRL#1 (Pitch
MG) and CTRL#2 (VDF Cutoff MG).
Pedal (CTRL#4)
This is a message for a pedal controller. The X5DR uses this message to switch between the main
