If you are controlling Volante 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, SPEED, or TRANSPORT mode. These 3 power-up modes for the EXP jack will all accept MIDI Program Change messages to recall presets on Volante on the MIDI Channel that the pedal is set to.

Additional MIDI Control Information
Volante 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.
– MIDI BANK 0 = PRESETS 0-127
– MIDI BANK 1 = PRESETS 128-255
– MIDI BANK 2 = PRESETS 256-299
Volante 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.
Selecting bank 0, presets 0-7 will correspond to the 8 on-board Favorite presets accessible via the FAVORITE footswitch and the 8 playback/feedback buttons. Also when in bank 0, patch 127 will put Volante into Manual mode. In this mode, the pedal will be set to the current knob, button, and switch settings. No preset data can be stored at this preset location.
