The "Status" setting is located in the COMBI 2:
Ed–Track Param, MIDI page, and the "Program
Change" setting is located in the COMBI 3: Ed–
MIDI Filter1, -1 page.
The result of receiving a program change on the
global MIDI channel will depend on the GLOBAL
1: MIDI "Combi (Combination Change)" setting.
Just as in Program mode, you can use controllers
such as the joystick, OCTAVE [†][π] buttons, and
REALTIME CONTROLS – to add a broad
range of expression to your playing in Combina-
These controls let you modify the tone, pitch, vol-
ume, effects, etc. in realtime while you play.
For more details, see "Using Controllers" (☞p.59).
REALTIME CONTROLS , , , and  will
also function as external controls.
Sending MIDI information from the
When you select a combination on microX, a MIDI
program change for the selected combination
number will be transmitted on the global MIDI
channel. At the same time, bank select, program
change, and volume (CC#7) messages will be
transmitted on the MIDI channel speciﬁed for
each timbre that is set to "Status" of EXT or EX2.
However, these messages will not be transmitted
for timbres that are set to the same MIDI channel
as the global MIDI channel. In this case, EX2 tim-
bres will show the "Program Select" Bank as "–",
and will transmit the bank number that was speci-
ﬁed in "Bank (EX2) MSB"and "Bank (EX2) LSB"
MIDI messages transmitted when you operate
microX are transmitted on the global MIDI chan-
nel. At the same time, timbres whose "Status" is
EXT or EX2 will transmit the same messages on
their own MIDI channel.
For details on the MIDI messages transmitted
when you operate an microX controller, and on the
AMS (Alternate Modulation Source) and DMS
(Dynamic Modulation Source) corresponding to
the MIDI messages, see "MIDI transmission when
the X50/microX's controllers are operated" (☞PG
