GLOBAL 6: Ext. Control
External Control lets you use the REALTIME CONTROL
knobs to control external MIDI devices. You can assign a
MIDI control change and MIDI channel to each of the four
knobs, and switch between three such settings (A, B, C) to
control an external device. This means that each set-up lets
you transmit twelve (4 × 3) different MIDI control changes.
You can select and use these setups if EXT. CONTROLLER is
turned on in Program, Combination, or Multi Set modes.
You can create 64 different external control setups. For
example you might use one setup to control one of the
KORG Legacy Collection soft synthesizers, and another
setup to control the level or pan parameters of your DAW
(Digital Audio Workstation).
External Control gives you a set of independent control
functions that you can use via the microX's knobs while in
Switching programs or moving to Combination mode while
the [EXT. CONTROLLER] button is on will not change the
external control set that is selected. This means that you can
select microX sounds without affecting your external MIDI
control setup, or conversely, change the external MIDI con-
trol setup without switching sounds.
After you've edited a external control set, you'll need to
execute the "Write Ext. Control Set" utility to write
(save) the edited settings.

This speciﬁes the MIDI channel on which each knob –
will transmit messages when [SELECT] A (B, C) is selected.
Gch: Messages will be transmitted on the global MIDI chan-
nel speciﬁed in Global mode. You can easily change the
channel of all the knobs that are set to Gch simply by chang-
ing the global MIDI channel setting, instead of changing the
channel of each knob individually.
This speciﬁes the MIDI control change number that each
knob – will transmit when [SELECT] A (B, C) is
