Opening the Menu

Open the System Setup Menu by pressing the front panel green Enter button so that you read Main Menu on the top line of the display. Press the number 3 and the flashing lower line will read System Setup Menu then press the Enter button again. Press the number 7 and the flashing lower line will read Keyboard Size/MIDI then press the Enter button again.

Something similar to the following screen will appear (the blinking cursor position is shown in bold).

Keyboard/MIDI Setup
Press 9 to continue.

You should press 9 to continue.

Setting the Keyboard

The default setting is the Chime Master 61 note (five-octave single keyboard). The system will default to this setting if this process is not completed in 2 minutes.

=====Stops=====
Be sure that the organ's MIDI stops are engaged, before running the Setup/Configure Keyboard procedure.  

1) Depress the highest note on the primary keyboard (the melody keyboard for multiple keyboard consoles). The display should show both the note and the MIDI channel it was transmitted on.

2) Depress the lowest note on the primary keyboard.

3) Depress the highest note on the secondary keyboard (If available or repeat with the single keyboard again). This will play the accompaniment bell voices for Chime and Harp arrangements.

4) Depress the lowest note on the secondary keyboard (or repeat the single keyboard if unavailable).

See Setting Touch Sensitivity for how to adjust volume when playing on your keyboard.

Closing the Menu

When you are finished using the Play selections menu, press the red Cancel button until you see the current date and time on the display.
