There are 16 on-board presets that are accessible by using the 8 PRESET BUTTONS on NightSky. They are arranged in 2 banks of 8 presets with different PRESET BUTTON colors indicating the selected bank.
The currently selected preset becomes your active Favorite preset. Your Favorite preset can be instantly recalled by pressing the FAVORITE footswitch while in reverb mode.

If you are controlling NightSky via MIDI, you have access to 300 presets available via MIDI Program Change through either the 5-pin DIN MIDI IN port, the USB-mini port, or through the EXP jack set to PRESET mode. This power-up mode for the EXP jack will accept MIDI Program Change messages to recall presets on NightSky on the MIDI Channel that the pedal is set to.

Additional MIDI Control Information
NightSky contains 300 preset locations, numbered sequentially from 0-299. Because MIDI Program Change messages have a maximum number of 128 (0-127) the presets are grouped into three MIDI patch banks.
NightSky always powers up in MIDI Patch Bank 0, so if you plan to stay within the first 127 presets, simply send a standard MIDI Program Change message to load a preset.
If you will be using MIDI Banks 1 and/or 2, it is advisable to send a standard MIDI Bank Change message (MIDI CC# 0 with a value equal to the MIDI Bank#) before each MIDI Program Change message.
Sending MIDI CC# 0 with a value 0, MIDI Program Change #’s 0-15 will correspond to the 16 on-board Favorite presets accessible via the FAVORITE footswitch and the PRESET BUTTONS. Also, when in bank 0, MIDI PROGRAM CHANGE # 127 will put NightSky into Manual mode. In this mode, the pedal will be set to the current knob and button, settings. No preset data can be stored at this preset location.
