An example of settings in a Program
When using SW1/2 for AMS or Dmod, the default
settings are SW1 Mod.:CC#80 and SW2 Mod.:CC#81.
For an example, see "Using Dmod to change the
feedback level via SW1" on page 195. For a complete
list of the possible assignments, see "SW1/2

Note: If you wish to keep these settings after the power
is turned off, you must save the Program,
Combination, or Song. Settings for Sampling mode

Control Surface knobs, sliders, & switches
The Control Surface has 8 knobs, 8 sliders plus a
master slider, and 16 switches. You can use these for
many different tasks:
• Controlling mixer features, including volume, pan,
EQ, FX sends, mute, and solo
• Modulating and editing sounds
• Controlling KARMA
• Controlling external MIDI devices
You can switch the Control Surface between its
different functions using either the on‐screen tabs on
the Control Surface page, or the front‐panel Control
Assign switches. The tabs and the front‐panel switches
mirror one another; when you change one of them, the
other changes as well.
