Setting up the MC6 for Basic Control

1 comment

Edited: Sep 18, 2017

I have 7 MIDI capable devices, and would like to set up the following functionality for them, if possible.


Have two switches that scroll through the devices (e.g. Switch A goes to the previous device and B goes to the next), have two other switches to scroll through the saved presets (C goes to the previous PC and F goes to the next), and have a button that turns the device on/off (e.g. press D to turn on, press D again to turn off).


I'm wondering if this is possible? Or is it not possible, since each device will have its own CC message for bypass/engage? Also, I want to send these messages one device at a time. That is, if I'm scrolling through PC messages on one device, I don't want all other devices scrolling through the same PC #s.


If this is possible, could someone help me figure it out? I believe I've set up switches C and F to go forward and back through saved presets (using PC Scroll Down and PC Scroll Up), but I'm not sure how to do this with devices (i.e. Midi Channels).

You could achieve a behavior like this... Here's how I'd set it up:


You'll need to use 7 MC6 Banks. Each of these MC6 Banks will represent a Device.


For the "Device Scroll Up/Down"

On Bank 1 set Preset A to MC6 Bank Up, set Preset B to Set Bank 7

On Bank 7 set Preset A to MC6 Bank Down, set Preset B to Set Bank 1

Banks 2-6, have Presets A / B simply Set Banks to the MC6 banks before and after them.


Which a unique bank for each device, you can now program C / F to program change that specific Device. Likewise, you can have a dedicated Preset to bypass / enable that device as well.

  • Hi, Im using an MC6 linked to an Elektron Analog Heat Mk2 Running 3.4.1 and 3.4.2beta do the same Using an EV 30 dual expression pedal. I've set the bank so that the expression pedal controls 2 CC messages. #12 for Drive and #74 for filter frequencey What I'm trying to do is set footswitch A to toggle the message to control Filter on/off, and footswitch D to do the same for drive However, after saving it and trying out the pedal. The first message will be triggered after pressing Preset A (filter) , but Pressing press B (wont control drive) Also, after saving preset A with msg1. when I press the button for preset B, save it with msg 2, then press the button for preset A again, msg 2 is written for preset 1. Sometime the Toggle Prosition is also changed from Expression 1 to 2. Help...I've followed the blog post and im doing everything correct so why is this happening.
  • Installed the new firmware cant get midi monitor to work. Im new to all this so be nice. I downloaded and installed the new editor. I see there are 2 source files below the main download. do I need to do something with those?
  • Hi Morningstar ! My 1st post here. I have just ordered a MC6 MK II and I will need to attach a 3 Button Auxiliary Pedal with it. My local music store has one of these Digitech FS3X 3 Button Pedals in store ... my question is:- => will the Digitech FS3X 3 Button Pedal work as an external 3 button auxiliary swtich with the MC6 MK II (?) => if so, do I need to do anything special / different for the MC6 MK II to correclty recognise and use it (?) Thanks, Ben
