ME-20: Selecting Patches

Tags: effects,me-20
Patches are stored in the ME-20 in ten “banks,” numbered from 1 to 10. Each bank holds three patches. To load a patch, you first select the bank that contains the patch, and then you select the patch. Use the following procedure to load Patch 5-3 (Bank 5, Patch 3) — as an example:

Press Pedals 2 and 3 simultaneously to enter Memory mode where the current Bank number shows in the display and the display’s MEMORY indicator lights.

Press the BANK Up or Down button so the number “5” flashes in the display. This tells you that Bank 5 is selected and that the ME-20 is waiting for you to choose the desired patch in Bank 5.

Now step on Pedal 3 — the “5” stops flashing and Patch 5-3 is loaded.

Using the same procedure, try out some of the other patches in the ME-20.

Tip: You can also select different banks using Pedals 2 and 3. To do so, press and hold Pedal 2 for two seconds until the pedal indicators are flashing, and then press Pedal 1 or 2 to select a desired bank. Once you’ve chosen the bank, press Pedal 3, and then press one of the three pedals to select the desired patch.
