trol Change messages #99 (MSB, with value 2) and #98 (LSB,

trol channel. Go to the Global > MIDI > General Controls page
and choose a MIDI Preset where to save your settings.
Then, choose a MIDI channel as the "Control" channel. Go to
the Global > MIDI > Midi In Channel page, and assign the Con-
trol option to one of the sixteen available MIDI channels (usually
one of the higher-numbered ones, for example 16).
When done, save this setting to the current MIDI Preset by
choosing the "Write Midi Preset" command from the page
