from the General MIDI Instruments list (see Appendix). There are two methods
send the program change:
1. Incremental/Decremental Program Change:
Press the Advanced Functions button.
Press the black key above F1 (named F# 1).
Now the Octave "+" and "-" keys can be used to change the program.
Press "+" and continue to play some notes until you find the instrument you want.
2. Quick Select Program Change
Press the Advanced Functions button.
Press the black key above F4 (named F# 4), representing "program."
Press keys C4, then E3 then C5. This enters the combination: "3," "2," "ENTER."
Alternatively, you can use the "+" and "-" buttons to change the value, and
then press ENTER.
Now the keyboard is set to play the GM bass sound 32 (from the General MIDI
Instruments standard list). The full list of instruments accessible using program
changes is given in the Appendix at the end of this manual.
Method 1 is useful if you want to cycle through different instruments to see
which sounds best in your song, while Method 2 is more useful if you want to
select a specific number, as is the case here.
If the Octave "+" and "-" keys are selected to vary the Program number (Method
1), the lights above the buttons will not change, since it is not possible to have
a Program with a negative value. Pressing both the "+" and "-" buttons
together will recall Program 0, which selects a grand piano sound.
Bank LSB and Bank MSB
Program Changes are the most commonly used messages to change
instruments and voices. However, the number of instruments accessible using
Program Changes is limited to 128. Since some devices have more than 128
voices, they require a different method to access these extra voices. Generally,
these devices use Bank LSB and Bank MSB messages, The Keystation 49e can
accomplish these changes in two ways and they aredesccribed following:
1. Incremental/Decremental Bank LSB and Bank MSB Change:
Press the Advanced Functions button.
Press the black key above G1 (named G# 1).
Now the Octave "+" and "-" keys can be used to change the program.
