Patching Patch Jump from Edit Mode Page 8 Contents, cont'd. Global Patches Page 9 Mod Effects The MPX 1 multi processor technology gives you multi effects the way you expect them to work — with instant access to individual effects, and the ability to run uncompromised stereo reverb at all times.
Press to access options. Press again to exit. If the unit is mounted in a rack or road case, support the rear of the chassis to prevent possible damage from mechanical shock and vibration. For the best sonic results, the MPX 1 outputs should be connected in stereo. Headroom Display The headroom display provides both headroom and overload information from a variety of measurement points. To set the mode, press System, select Audio, then select Input Mode.
Press System and select the Audio menu. Scroll to Audio Output and select Analog or Digital. Press System again and select the Modes menu. Scroll to Modes: Bypass and make sure that the assignment is Bypass the default setting. Beginning with a menu tree to guide you through the major areas of the MPX 1, this chapter focuses on the basics that you want to get to first — finding, loading, tweaking and storing programs.
In this mode, you can select and load programs, with Programs select database sorting criteria and access the "Soft Row" — a selected set of the most useful parameters for each program.
Page Effect Bypass Basic Operation The front panel Effect buttons light to show you which effect blocks are active. Effect Bypass — When you're scrolling through programs, they'll change to show you the effects in any displayed program.
Once you stop scrolling, they'll return to display of the effects that are active in the currently loaded program. Many preset programs are designed with their own tempo rate settings which are stored with the programs.
The front panel Tempo LED will flash in tempo whenever you load a program with tempo control. These parameters are available from Program mode in a "Soft Row" which is accessed by pressing Value. In Program mode This is a great timesaver when you're looking and Show — Using specifically for guitar effects, or EQ effects, or for EQ effects for guitar.
This identifies the program as having been altered since the last store procedure. As the first thing you are likely to want to modify in a program are its effects, this section starts there and then moves on to all of the functions available in Edit mode.
Note that, in Edit mode, as elsewhere, the Value button acts as a toggle to allow you to assign "select" The asterisk will disappear from the displayed name and the button light will return to its normal slow blinking edit state. An edit indicator is displayed to indicate that the active program has been modified. Whether you want to reassign the front panel meter display, re-route the effects in a program, or create an entirely new sound, you will find the tools you need in this section.
If the program has not been edited, the message Pgm is unchanged will be displayed. If the program has been edited, the display will change to show To use this function, select Copy Effect from the Edit menu.
When you first select Assignment Soft Row in Edit mode, you have direct access to all of the Soft Row parameters, exactly as in Program mode. If Tempo Source is set to Internal, you can dial in any tempo from BPM, or you can press the front panel Tap button twice in rhythm to establish the rate you want allowing you to change tempo on the fly from any mode. The DataBase controls in the Edit menu let you Assigning DataBase assign your programs to any or all of the categories shown below.
The Routing Map is a graphic display that shows routing and connections between the MPX 1 effect blocks. Use the Routing Map to change connections between individual effects and also to change the overall routing configuration of all six effect blocks as a group.
Page 38 MPX 1 User Guide Lexicon How to Change Routing The routing page lets you alter the connections between the inputs of the Connections selected block and the outputs of the blocks in front of it. It is easy to think of these connections as patch cords connecting the different blocks. Page 39 Editing In the following example we've selected one of the presets, FazerTremolo, as Routing Example an illustration of the kind of programs that can be created with the MPX 1 routing and connection capabilities.
The best approach to take is to think about what you want before changing anything. When changing the routing options, work from left to right — from the input block to the output block. Press to display the current ordering and routing configuration.
An ordering display such as the one shown below will appear. An underscore identifies the Effect block which is selected for moving to a new location. This of the Internal Control- section describes controller editing. This allows you to alter the value of the parameter by manipulating the control Source. For example, you can select the front panel knob as a Source and an effect's Mix parameter as a Destination. Page Changing The Range Of The Destination Parameter Patching For most applications, the default full-range Destination values are all you will Changing the Range of want, as these allow your selected Source to exert direct control over the full the Destination range of parameter values.
In other cases, you may want to adjust the Parameter Destination values to a more limited range, or establish a nonlinear relationship between the controller and the parameter values. Selecting Suspend temporaily suspends the patch until such time as you return to the Patch System Clearing Patches Destination Option and select Unsuspend. These allow you to select any or all patches to be cleared. These include: configuring the inputs for stereo or mono applications, selecting analog or digital inputs and outputs, etc.
These settings are stored as integral parts of the program. The Mix parameter allows you to select Program, You can set these parameters in beats, allowing you to control your programs in a completely musical way.
Each MPX 1 program has its own Tempo parameters, with tempo settings stored as an integral part of the program. Five Setups can be stored in the unit, allowing you to quickly reconfigure the MPX 1 at any time. When you press Store the display will show: Load n: Setup1 Press Store The upper line of the display shows the Setup number currently selected for loading. Turn the knob to select any Setup number Press Store again. The operation of each of these controls is described here.
When received, all patched parameters are reset to their stored values. Select whichever of these categories you want, and press Store. Page Program Chains System Controls assign any program to any link in the chain with the controls in this menu. These controls allow you to perform a complete reset of the unit to its factory defaults, or to reset only selected functions. Clear Programs to Two fields are available for selecting any num- ber of User programs between and Selections you make here will overwrite programs currently at the location s you designate.
Global patches override, but do not clear, program patches with the same parameter Destination. From the main System menu, select Calibrate Pedal and press Yes.
A display prompt will allow you to choose to continue the calibration procedure, overwriting any pre-existing pedal settings, or to discontinue the procedure.
Note that the controller is set to "local control off" and the sequencer is set to "echo input". Others may appear to be able to send only 32, but actually have a bank mode that does let you send all program change messages. You can process the output of the sound generator through the MPX 1, but this is not necessary to hear the effect of the arpeggiator. The manner Messages in which the MPX 1 interprets these messages is determined by the value of this This is intended primarily for use by editor programs and in configurations where it is desirable for one or more MPX 1s to be slaved to a single MPX 1 acting as a master.
Page Bulk Data Dumps Tempo. These can be obtained directly from Lexicon. Bulk Data Dumps The following notes should be kept in mind when creating new combinations of effects in a Combining Effects program. All reverb effects have dedicated processing and can be used in combination with any other effect. The Optimize parameter an option of Tune allows balancing of any artifacts vs. Higher settings of Optimize are good for chords and low notes, lower settings minimize the delay through the effect.
