On the SP6, what MIDI Continuous Controllers (CC) are used to remotely control the KB3 parameters?


Via the SP6 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 SP6 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 any associated, default MIDI CC numbers. Note all parameter CC’s are customizable per program. Those marked with a “+” have no factory default CC but can be manually assigned, per program, as needed.
