MC-808: Using an External Keyboard With the MC-808
By default, when triggering the MC-808 via MIDI, part 1 responds to MIDI channel 1, part 2 responds to channel 2, and so forth.
Instead, you can make the MC-808 automatically route its MIDI input to control the currently selected part. This way, you don't have to constantly change your keyboard controller's MIDI channel. This function is called "Remote Keyboard".
To turn the Remote Keyboard Switch on:
1. Press [SYSTEM].
2. While holding [SHIFT], press Pad 4 (RX MIDI). The screen will read "SYSTEM:Rx MIDI Remote Kbd Sw: OFF".
3. Use the VALUE dial to select "ON".
