Using the MPK editor software (Vyzex) make the following setting changes to an MPK preset. Apply the CC settings below ti the buttons, sliders, and knobs of the MPK.

Once these settings are made press “Sync” within Vyzex. This will send the preset to your MPK. This will save the preset to the MPK’s buffer memory meaning this preset will be lost when the unit to turned off. To permanently save this preset please do the following.

1. While you are in Preset Mode, press [>] button until you see the ‘SAVE TO’ screen similar to the one shown

2. You can select the location where you want to save the Preset by turning the [VALUE] knob.
When you do this, you will notice that the ‘PRESS ENTER’ segment will begin to blink.

3. Press [ENTER] to save current Preset to the destination. Pressing [<] button or [PRESET] button cancels the
operation and returns you to the Preset play mode.
