MC-50, MC-50MKII: Inserting CC#0 and Program Change Messages

Tags: mc-50,mc-50mkii
MIDI sound devices require up to three MIDI messages to select sounds remotely
through MIDI: CC#0 (also known as Bank Select MSB), CC#32 (Bank Select LSB) and
PC or PG (Program Change.) Each event must also include a specific "value." The
correct values are usually found in the Owner’s Manual for each product. These
messages are inserted in the MC-50 using the "Create Event" function. Use the
following procedure to insert CC#0 and Program Change messages at the beginning
