The PK-5 and PK-5A have the following default MIDI channel settings:

- BASS = MIDI Channel 2
- POLY = MIDI Channel 1

 PK-5A

- MONO = MIDI Channel 2
- POLY = MIDI Channel 14
- DRUMS = MIDI Channel 10
- SOUND EFFECTS = MIDI Channel 16
- MIDI Controller = MIDI Channel 10

You can change the MIDI channels as desired on both of these pedal units - here are the steps:

1. Press the MIDI CHANNEL switch so it is lit.

2. Press the pedal(s) with the number(s) of the desired MIDI channel.

3. Press the B pedal to confirm the selection (all LED’s will light momentarily).

 

NOTE: The PK-5 and PK-5A do not remember this setting. You will have to make this change each time you power on the pedal controller.
