Numeric selection of entries
When in SongBook mode, you can select a SongBook entry by
means of an unique number. Numbers associated with each

SONGBOOK button again while you are in any page of the
SongBook mode. The numeric keypad will appear, allowing you
to enter the number corresponding to the desired entry.
Selecting SongBook entries via MIDI
SongBook entries can be selected via MIDI (through the special
Control channel), by using the NRPN dedicated Control Change
messages #99 (MSB, with value 2) and #98 (LSB, with value 64).
See "Selecting SongBook entries via MIDI" on next page.
Setting the special Control MIDI channel
First of all, go to the Global > MIDI > Setup/General Control
page and select a MIDI Setup to be used when you will remotely
select SongBook entries.
Then go to the Global > MIDI > Midi In Channel page, to assign
a MIDI channel to the special Control channel. Assign the Con-
trol option to one of the sixteen available MIDI channels (usu-
ally one of the higher-numbered ones).
When done, save this setting to the current MIDI Setup by
choosing the "Write Global-Midi Setup" command from the
page menu.
If you plan to use a different MIDI channel for the Style Play and
Song Play modes, repeat the above to create a second MIDI
Assigning a MIDI Setup to the Style Play and Song Play
Since SongBook entries dynamically recall the Style Play or the
Song Play modes, it is advisable to assign them the same MIDI
Setup, or two different MIDI Setups with the Control channel
assigned to the same MIDI channel. This way, the same MIDI
channel will be used to select a SongBook entry in either the
Style Play or Song Play mode.
When one of the operating modes is recalled, the MIDI Setup
memorized in the Style Play Setup or in the Song Play Setup will
be automatically selected, and MIDI channels will be automati-
cally configured.
To assign a MIDI Setup to each of the two operating modes:
• In Style Play mode, go to the Style Play > Preferences > Style
Setup page, and select a MIDI Setup. Select the Write Global-
Style Setup command from the page menu.
