The CX-3 does not respond correctly to incoming
MIDI messages

Pedal switch or expression pedal connected to the

(see p.10)
It is possible to assign more than one function to a
pedal switch or expression pedal. However if a pedal
switch etc. is selected by the Global mode Group 1
"Prog Up Ctrl" or "Prog Down Ctrl" parameter

Edit mode and EX Edit mode settings will not be used.
Please check the settings of these parameters.
(see p.10)
An external MIDI device acts in unexpected ways
when connected to the CX-3
• Is there a CC# conflict?
Most operations of the CX-3's front panel keys and
drawbars etc. can be transmitted as CC# (control
change number) messages, and with the factory
settings, control changes that differ from those used
by typical MIDI devices are assigned. This means that
when another device is connected to the CX-3 via
MIDI, the control changes of the CX-3 may coincide
with dif f ering functions on the external MIDI device,
causing it to operate in unexpected ways.
Check the control change related parameters in Global
(see p.12, 13)
mode Group 4 and 5, and turn unneeded parameters
off or change their control change number.
