dial to consecutively step through programs in

Using 10's HOLD to select programs

held (fixed).

Using a footswitch to select Pro-
grams
You can assign a footswitch to step through Pro-
grams one by one, either going up (0, 1, 2, 3, etc.)
or going down (3, 2, 1 etc.).
This lets you change Programs without using your
hands–great for quick Program changes in live
performance situations.
To set this up:
1. Connect a foot switch to the rear-panel
ASSIGNABLE SWITCH jack.
Use a simple on/off footswitch, such as the
optional KORG PS-1.
2. Press the [GLOBAL] button to enter Global
mode.
3. Press the [EXIT] button to access the GLOBAL
0: System page.
4. Press the [PAGE+] button to access the Foot tab.
5. Select "Foot SW Assign," and specify either
Program Up or Program Down.
Program Up lets you select the next higher
program number each time you press the foot
switch.
Program Down lets you select the next lower
program number each time you press the foot
switch.
6. Set the "Foot SW Polarity" to the polarity of the
pedal you've connected.
If you've connected a separately sold PS-1
pedal switch, choose the (–) KORG Standard
setting.
With these settings, you will step through the
programs one at a time each time you press the
foot switch.
If you want this setting to be remembered even
after you turn off the power, be sure to write
the changes you made. (☞p.45)
7. Use the [PROG] button to enter PROG 0: Play,
and press the foot switch; the program will
change.
Note: This setting applies to selecting Combinations,
as well.
Using MIDI program change mes-
sages to select programs
By sending MIDI program change messages along
with MIDI bank select messages to the X50 from
an external MIDI device (a MIDI sequencer such
as a DAW program, or a MIDI controller, etc.), you
can select any program in the six banks.
You can also install the included "X50 Plug-In Edi-
tor" into your DAW program as a plug-in, and
easily select X50 programs or combinations from a
list within your DAW. For more details, see "Edi-
tor/Plug-In Editor Manual" (PDF).
MIDI channel setting
In order to play the X50 via MIDI, the transmitting
device (MIDI sequencer or computer) and receiv-
ing device (the X50) must be set to the matching
MIDI channel. In Program mode, the X50 receives
data on the global MIDI channel.
1. Make sure that the X50 and your external MIDI
device or computer are connected correctly.
For details on connections, see p.27.
