Changing the Bank page buttons / tuner functionality
#1
I just got my 6F1D plus.
Is it possible to change the bank page registers/buttons to be PCs? I'd prefer to have 6 usable registers, than have 4 usable registers and 2 bank change registers
When I hit either bank register, and edit, it goes to edit the register pressed before the bank register.
Thanks for any info!

Edit; I'm a little confused with tuner functionality with the axe fx. The only way I've gotten this to work is my holding Register page left to activate mute mode, and then manually pushing the tuner button on my axe fx.
Maybe I'm not properly assigning the CC, because when I assign a register to cc15, it just pulls up my 15th patch. If I can't edit the top 2 registers, then my plan would be to have 3 registers for patch changing, the 4th register being a tuner toggle, and never use the upper 2 registers. Any info is greatly appreciated!

Hi f2bacon,
I understand, but it is not possible to change the bank page registers/buttons to be PCs. It is possible to add some CC on on pressing <Bank or Bank> buttons along with the bank change on the MIDI controller. It is intended primarily for Kemper Profiler but I think that it can be well utilizes also for Axe-FX in some cases. I hope that you will utilize also another banks, maybe in the future.

Regarding the tuner functionality, please see also this topic: MIDI Grande and AXE FX II - how to set up bi-directional.

How to set CC#15 on the <Bank footswitch to activate the tuner and mute functionality:
  • Press and hold for a while the Edit/Save button. The display shows: GLOB. You are in global menu. When you release the Edit/Save button, the display shows: 1 PC.
  • Press Param> button until the display shows: M CC. It means that the Mute functionality is active on MIDI Grande and it will send a CC when the <Bank footswitch is hold down.
  • Press the Param> button, the display shows: MC 1. It means the the Mute CC is sent on MIDI channel 1. If your Axe-FX receives on another channel, adjust the channel using <Value and Value> buttons.
  • Press the Param> button, the display shows: N 31. It means that the number of the Mute CC is #31 by default. Using the <Value (or Value>) buttons set it to N 15. The CC#15 is used for mute and tuner functionality on Axe-FX.
  • Press the Param> button, the display shows: 1127. it means that CC#15 with value 127 is sent when the mute function is activated by pressing and holding the <Bank footswitch. It should work with Axe-FX with no changes.
  • Press the Param> button, the display shows: 0  0. It means that CC#15 with value 0 is sent when the <Bank footswitch is pressed to exit the mute mode. This zero value should work with Axe-FX with no changes.
  • Press the Param> button 4 times until the display shows: CUNI. It means that unidirectional communication is enabled by default (it doesn'n process any tuner data). Press the Value> button to enable the bidirectional communication. Tne display shows CBID then. The MIDI controller will process the tuner data if they are received.
How to enable the bidirectional communication:




If you enable the SEND REALTIME SYSEX option on your Axe-FX, it should send the tuner data in tuner mode and MIDI Grande will visualize them.

Thank you, that was exactly what I needed. Basically a crash course in midi.

I noticed with the tuner, it doesn't really show you all of the available info. It doesn't tell you what letter tuning you're in, you gotta look at the axe screen for that. Maybe theoretically there could be a firmware update so maybe its letter parameter UTE or MUT displayed on the screen. Also the pedal doesn't light up unless youre pretty close to in tune, it seems to only have 3 steps in either direction. Red side, red center, green center. And I think you could incorporate another step into the edge lights by going edge red, edge green, center red, center green. Because it seems like the axe fx is always picking up the note and the midi grande is only picking up the note when it's pretty close to being in tune.
These aren't complaints, just suggestions. If nothing changes then I'm still happy with the midi grande. Only other thought I had was before I bought this I saw an old forum post saying an editing program was being worked on, I figured it was out, so now that I have this I'm sorta disappointed there's no program, but I managed to get everything I need out of this without a program so obviously it's not a necessity, but something like that would be cool. Regardless of all that I'll be recommending this to everyone I know using an axe fx or anything that uses a midi board. Thanks!!

Second edit, how come the midi in light comes on every 3 seconds or so?

Hi f2bacon,
thank you very much for your feedback. Good idea to make the tuner more smooth and wide range.
When the tuner is visualised, large amount of data is being processed. So there is less time to control the backlight. But we will test it whether it is possible to optimize it.
Thanks.

I've been using it live without any issues, I really like it! The display isn't so much a big deal as I wish I knew what letter tuning I was in. Like each string letter. I just assume I'm on the right letter and a little off, but I could be perfectly tuning to the wrong note. It hasn't happened to me, and most of the time I just turn around and look at my axe fx screen, but even still I've really been enjoying the pedal. Thank you very much!
