  2. Press the INST button.
  3. Press F3 twice.
  4. Press CURSOR UP or Down to select "TX Channel".
  5. Press the TRIGGER SELECT LOCK button so it is un-lit.
  6. Hit the pad to be set. If assigning the Head, hit the head portion of the pad. If assigning the Rim, hit the rim of the pad.
  7. Turn the VALUE dial to select a desired MIDI channel.
  8. Repeat steps 6-7 for the remaining pads if desired.
  9. Press KIT when finished. The assignments are stored into the kit automatically. 

NOTE: These assignments can be different for each Drum Kit. If you select a different Kit, assignments from the previous Kit will not be carried over.
