QuickStart Guide

Locating MIDI CC Numbers

Refer to a general MIDI Controller reference chart for all functions assigned to Registered Program Numbers (RPN).
EXAMPLE: "Volume" always has a CC number of "7"
If a connected MIDI device or software features controls assigned to NRPNs, refer to the MIDI implementation chart available in the user's manual for that
device or program.

Logicon keyboards can be used as a controller for:
- A remote MIDI keyboard or hardware module
- Computer-based audio recording or loop software
- A computer-based software synth module

Note: If the manufacturer of your connected MIDI devices lists NRPNs in hexadecimal format, use a Hexadecimal
Conversion Chart such as the one in your Logicon user's manual to translate the value into decimal format.

MICHAEL SAYS: "If there's any doubt about what something does.... hey, just give it a try! But you may
want to keep your volume control down and know where the 'Panic' button is on your Logicon."
Note: This guide is intended to help the owner of Icon
Logicon Series keyboards set up and begin to use this
equipment according to his/her needs. For comprehensive
information about this device, please refer to the Logicon
Series Users Manual.

CCs numbered 0-67 are continuous controls, each with a range of values from 0-127, while CCs 68-97are switches (on/off control). Numbers 98-127 are
unassigned parameters and global mode controls.

Choosing Faders, Knobs, and Trigger Pads

After deciding which MIDI controls you would like to set up on your Logicon, choose which fader, knob, or trigger pad will operate that control.
EXAMPLE: The logical place to assign "Volume" is on fader #4 of the Logicon.

Note: Continuous control functions will work best on a fader or knob as opposed to the trigger pads.
To activate the control you would like to program, move, turn, or tap the fader, knob, or pad. The LCD screen on your Logicon will display two numbers:

The left-hand number indicates which control was selected. For example, "1" for the first fader, knob, or pad.
The right-hand number will let you know what level that control is at, 0-127.
EXAMPLE: Adjusting fader #4 and then placing it in the lowest position will show "4" and "0" on the LCD screen.

Programming Controls
Once you have selected a fader, knob, or trigger pad, follow these steps to change what it controls.

Press the "Ctrl Assign" button. The button will light up.

Set up and Operation

To set up and start using your Logicon with any of these three applications, follow the procedures outlined below and described in further detail in this
QuickStart Guide.

The left-hand number will freeze to indicate the control you just activated, but the right-hand number will now display the MIDI CC number currently
assigned to that control. The letters "cc" will appear above this number.
Turn the jogwheel to find the CC number you would like to assign.
Press the jogwheel to enter that number.
Press "Ctrl Assign" again to complete the programming change. The button will go dark.

Connect your Logicon to remote units via the MIDI and/or USB connections.

Determine which aspects you would like to control with your Logicon

Locate the MIDI CC (Control Change) numbers for the functions you would like to use.

Determine whether you would like to operate each function with a fader, knob, or trigger pad

Program the Logicon controls to correspond with the selected CCs.

Use your musical and acoustic creativity to play and enjoy the Logicon keyboard you have purchased.


EXAMPLE: To set fader #4 as "Volume," press "Ctrl Assign." Turn the jogwheel until "7" is indicated by the right-hand number. Press the jogwheel.
Press "Ctrl Assign."

Repeat this process for all the faders, knobs, and pads you need to assign. For your convenience, it is recommended that you keep a written log sheet as
your own template or MIDI-Map.

MICHAEL SAYS: "Where possible, you may want to match the CC number to the fader, knob, or pad
number to make it easier to find. BUT, on the inspire, f4 should always be volume (CC #7)."

Note: If you would like to save the MIDI map you have created, press the "Save" button. When it lights up, use the jogwheel to

Connecting your Logicon to communicate with remote units


Connect the Logicon to your computer via the USB ports.

Choose a USB port on your computer and insert the wide (flat) end of the USB cable. Connect the cable's square end to the Logicon. Turn on
your Logicon and your computer's operating system should automatically "see" the new hardware and notify you that it is ready to use.

Note: Logicon can be powered through the USB port on your computer and will run effectively without its AC power pack.

Connect your Logicon to an external synthesizer or sound module.

Use the MIDI OUT connector on your Inspire to connect to an input port on your external device.

Note: You may also want to connect the MIDI OUT port on your external device to the MIDI IN
on Logicon. This will allow MIDI info to flow both ways for the best connectivity.

Connect external hardware such as a drum machine or another keyboard.

Connect the MIDI OUT on the equipment you wish to control to the MIDI IN port on your Logicon.

select a storage slot (F1-F20). Press the jogwheel to enter. All current fader, knob, and pad settings are now saved together.

Play around and enjoy the features of your Logicon keyboard

We encourage extensive use of the white and black keys located across the front of the keyboard. The trigger pad feature can be easily set up as electronic
percussion and Logicon's compatibility with recording and mixing software should allow you experiment to your creative potential.
Here are just a few more additional controls and how to use them on your Logicon. (Again, for comprehensive information about all of Logicon's
features, refer to the Logicon Series Users Manual.)

Note: The power cord is required when operating via the MIDI ports only.

To activate the optional internal synthesizer, find the "Synth" controls. Press the button, the LCD Screen will display the word "SYNTH" and a
circular MIDI icon to indicate the internal synthesizer is on. Use the same process to turn off the internal synthesizer.
The "PANIC" feature will reset all controllers and turn off all notes (such as when you get a stuck note that sounds continuously). "PANIC" is
activated by pressing "Mute" and "Octave" together either simultaneously or by holding one and then pressing the other.
To select a different instrument sound ("Program Change") press the "Program" button on your Logicon and then select the number corresponding
to the MIDI instrument you would like to use by turning the jogwheel. Press the jogwheel to enter the number and then press "Program" to
complete the assignment.

EXAMPLE: To change the sound to that of a trombone. Press "Program." Turn the jogwheel until the LCD number indicates "57." Press the
jogwheel to enter, and then press "Program."

Choosing MIDI Controllers

There are 128 MIDI Controller messages (CCs) that are used for adjusting parameters in MIDI devices. The more common functions,such as
volume, balance, pan, and reverb, have standardized MIDI numbers, called RPNs (Registered Program Numbers). NRPNs (Non-Registered
Program Numbers) do not have a set MIDI function and may correlate to device-specific or user-defined MIDI Controller messages.

MIDI Machine Controls (MMC) can be used with some devices and software applications to control standard functions such as Play, stop, Rewind,
and Fast Forward. Logicon features dedicated MMC buttons for this purpose.

Note: Not all MIDI devices or software will support external MMC messages.
Consult the user's manuals of these devices for more information.
