The Keyboard size/MIDI setup utilizes an automatic connection menu that listens to keys from your keyboard and automatically connects their channels and transposition to the carillon.

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 may press 9 to continue, or press Cancel to close the menu without changes.

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.

You must engage the organ's MIDI stops before proceeding or the bells will respond to the organ when the stops are not engaged.

Full keyboard

Play highest note of
  primary keyboard

While each organ key is held down, the display will show both the note number and the MIDI channel it was transmitted on.

  1. Depress and release the highest note on the primary keyboard (the melody keyboard for multiple keyboard consoles). Release the note.
  2. Depress and release the lowest note on the primary keyboard.
  3. Depress and release the highest note on the secondary keyboard (If available or repeat with the single keyboard again. Bell controls do not recognize secondary keyboards). This will play the accompaniment bell voices for Chime and Harp arrangements.
  4. Depress and release the lowest note on the secondary keyboard (or repeat the single keyboard if unavailable).

Closing the Menu

The menu will automatically close and launch the Record a Performance menu in the rehearsal mode so you can test your keyboard response. To exit, press Cancel until the current date and time is displayed.
