Controlling KB3 Parameters via MIDI on the SP4

Question:
On the SP4, what MIDI Continuous Controllers (CC) are used to remotely control the KB3 parameters?

Answer:

Via the SP4 MIDI IN (or USB-MIDI*) you can access the full compliment of KB3 program parameters to enhance your real-time performance as well as sonic tweaking.

(*Note: the SP4 Type B USB port does not provide bus power.)

TIP: tweaked programs can be saved to user memory simply by pressing Save, selecting a desired User Bank location, then pressing Save again.

The table below details the 23 accessible KB3 parameters and their associated MIDI CC numbers.

Notes:

  • ** "Farfisa" and "Doors Vox" programs use cc#29 to enable/disable the Chorus/Vibrato.
  • The original "Organ" Sound Bank file (SP4ORG01) posted online has been updated/replaced by SP4ORG01b, addressing a problem where the controllers for drawbar 5 and the Aux FX were swapped. Be sure to download and use the current "b" revision file.
